    ISTJ + INFP = ideal?. I mean, even keeping in mind all the "everyone is a unique individual blah blah snore", I've never heard that one before.

    I'm interested in knowing what typical ISTJ qualities you find most attractive. Humour me.

    So that human society has a certain balance to it. The largest group want to protect the status quo, so the resistance to that is tempered and we don't move so fast that we O.D. on progress...or something like that. Short hand, God wants to keep us in line.

    Agreed.

    ISTJs are very common, as well. SJs are the most common types by a long shot. I'd think NFs and NTs are the most rare.

    Just from experience, alone, I think that ENTPs, ENTJs, and INFPs may be the least common type.
    Is it that by its indefiniteness it shadows forth the heartless voids and immensities of the universe, and thus stabs us from behind with the thought of annihilation, when beholding the white depths of the milky way?

    From experience, ENTP's are everywhere, doing everything all the time. Not tons, but definitely identifiable and not as rare as other types. INFP's have some males in the group, so they aren't as scarce in my experience. Don't know any ENTJ's, maybe you're right?

    They are introverted, they are super loyal, they aren't retarded about feelings. Also if you take a look at the functions then we pretty much reinforce each other's weaknesses. INFP- FiNeSiTe, ISTJ- SiTeFiNe. I also like seeing their Fi come out in the open. Most of the time I've found that I can confide in thinkers very well (especially the TJs), whenever I ask one for advice they point out things that I wouldn't think about (such as real factors), since I have the emotional side of the issue covered in my mind. I don't conflict with them too much, and when I do it's usually minor, but even if it's not I resolve conflicts with these people very quickly generally.

    I could go on and on, I even started a thread about it. http://www.typologycentral.com/forum...tml#post557882 It got merged with another ISTJ praise thread, but that is where mind started.

    All of that combined with the fact that they are (I think) something like 15% of the world? Yes please.

Not a "boo freaking hoo, woe is me" but simply a gap in commonality is created by being INFJ which makes life a little harder.

    As far as the CAPT statistic being accurate, most stats that I find hold the INFJ and INFJ male to be the lowest percentage.

    It's not really up for that much question in my mind. Maybe if we took a sample in a profession dominated by INFJ's like religious studies professors, than maybe we could fix the results, but in a fair cross section of humanity, it makes sense we're the lowest frequency. What are we clearly capable of and how important are those roles? Not that important really. Genetic lottery losers imo. It's hard saying that, when I know there are positive traits among fellow INFJ's with our dominant introverted intuition about relationships.

    I'm not buying it. How harsh you sound...even to slam 'your own type..' You got eyes on you.

    Why some types are more common and some are rarer? Well, I'd say the predestination of God. It's God's way of administering his sovereignty and perfection. A sovereign imprint onto our social order. Do you have an evolutionary reason? Just cuz? Is there a way of tampering with the genome to get the proper balance of personality types necessary for a functioning society? Predestination and the sovereignty of God is the best answer in my mind.
    This sounds ESTP.

    Very interesting statistical compilation here - Meyers-Briggs Statistics

    According to it, ISFJ is the most common and INFJ is the least. The gender differences are very interesting too. Most common male personality is ISTJ, most common female personality is ISFJ.
