    My test results are on every post. I just took another test, hoping it was different and it came out even more INFJ than the last one. Don't know what kind of male INFJ's you've met, but my comments are far from harsh, because tone isn't conveyed on a post. As well, on the post you take, I'm quoting the muppets! I'm laughing. What do you find harsh?

    Yeah, I still don't buy those numbers. Specifically that there are significantly more ISFPs than ESTPs. I highly doubt that.

    Why do you highly doubt that?

    My own observation of people and things I've read. Also my inherent skepticism of the results of surveys with so much room for bias.

    So basically, your feelings.

    These statistics are for Americans. For another nation, it would probably be pretty different. Study said it sampled 3009 Americans out of a pool of about 16,000.

    I know that my type is rare, but I think I know a lot of like-minded people, (although I'm new to MBTI, so I have never typed anyone I know.) I chalk this up to hanging around musicians (and being one, of course). Musical friendships can be very deep...

    Agreed, musical relationships I've had are deep, and at the same time, highly volatile due to creative differences like Mr. Schneebly!

    "I pledge allegiance... to the band... of Mr. Schneebly... and will not fight him... for creative control... and will defer to him on all issues related to the musical direction of the band."

    Does anyone have any tangible evidence, beyond their gut feelings, why the mbti frequencies would be out, when all the tests support similar findings? Why they don't sit well? Why such disagreement? Anyone here support them, like myself? Does 70% S types and 30% N types bother anyone, or do you see the reason for its necessity in society?

    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.
    This is interesting. I know at least 5 or 6 INFPs (2 males and 4 females). From my experience, INFPs don't seem to be that rare. But then again, it's all based on our own observations. I also know 2 ENTJs who happen to be females. There must be really rare odds for that.

    I know at least 6 INFPs (2 f, 4 m) and was puzzled by this as I'd read they were fairly uncommon. I then remembered a description of INFPs that I'd read stating something about being interested in the arts and alternative scene. I realized that most INFPs I knew were in bands, going out with people in bands or were just part of the 'arts' scene.
