    Well if you look at values, no person is going to go against their own. So the logical thing to expect is for the most popular MBTI type to be the most encouraged. I also think it's less of a dichotomy procedure and more functional.

    If ESTJ is the most popular type, then I also think Te and Si types are the most encouraged. However, if ESFJ is a close second (in tandem I have no idea) then Te and Fe primary types are the most encouraged. See how that works?

    I think if intuition is subdued upon one's main approach to temperament, like of the ENTJ and ENFJ types, then they're typically more accepted.

    Yes, this exactly. It's all about the functions that tend to bring about what is valued. It seems to be Te in males and Fe in females, supplemented with Si, with gender roles intact.

    Young males:
    E_TP
    Older males:
    E_TJ

    Females
    young and crazy - E_FP
    'good' girls - __FJ (the more popular ones being Es)


    majority of the people in the world are Es, i think.
    in a work setting, people are generally expected to be Js. (at least, this is my impression)

    In New Zealand:

    For men ESTJ at work, ESTP socially
    For women ESFJ at work, ESFP socially

    ISTP (or even some weird mix with ENTP) is kind of a celebrated cultural archetype.
    Act your age not your enneagram number.

    ESFJ is encouraged in younger women as well.

    It's funny that this thread is titled popular culture but then talks more about business culture. Nocap is right, pop culture worships the ISTP but companies want to hire ESTJ.

    I've read in various MBTI books and elsewhere that the traditional american male is ESTJ. and the traditional american female is ESFJ. I further agree, that this is true for adults, but for younger people J is replaced with P.
