    Default Type Research

    Can anyone share any interesting personality type research they have found?

    I'm looking at a thesis that demonstrates some relationships between types and the written language they use (Dack, 2001). People with confirmed types provided several writing samples and they were analyzed for the following variables:

    mean word count per sentence
    mean clause count per sentence
    percentage of adjectives to total words
    percentage of adverbs to total words
    percentage of infinitive verb phrases to total verbs

    Strongly suggested relationships:

    Male Js and words per sentence
    Male Js and clauses per sentence
    Female Ns and words per sentence
    Males Es and clauses per sentence (inverse, so they used few)
    Males Ss and clauses per sentence
    Male Ss and adjectives (inverse)
    Female Ts and infinitives (inverse)

    Does verbosity REALLY depend on type?
    If a deaf INFP falls in the forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?

    This has a ton of info on the types. Read through the answers, and their type should be listed there too. You can also look on the left at their type listed under their avatar.

    I imagine I, S, T, and J to be the least verbose and the most concise.

    Usually, I practically use run-on sentences, especially on topics that interest me.

    You won't find many STJs there, though.
    I guess I prove the I-S-T-J theory; my sentences are pretty short. Especially if you count the areas between dashes/semicolons/whatever as sentences
    I recommend that link that was posted earlier, because there, no one pretends to be anything. They all sound natural there, really - not trying to impress, or anything like that.
