    30% is enough for me I guess.
    This is roughly accurate, yeah. Most of my personal experience/things I've read say it's around 1/3.

    Seconded.

    The question doesn't make any sense to me. Even "in your experience..." would be more relevant.

    It's like saying "In your opinion, how many people own cats?"

    ^ In my opinion, you own six cats.

    And by God, I have a right to that opinion, dammit.

    Sim, I can't say I blame you for thinking that I'm a crazy cat lady

    I started reading this thread and I thought 'Awww, I feel special!"

    And then I read Protean's post with the statistics and I thought 'Awww, I don't feel so special!'

    ENFP females are up to 10% of the population? Damn, and yet I still can't recognize "my own type" when I see it!

    I do think the idea of statistics differences between nations are interesting. Makes you wonder how personality traits are carried genetically, molded culturally. What gets encouraged and what gets repressed/penalized.

    It would be great if there were some kind of definitive questions/signs to determine S vs N in people you meet. It is the hardest trait to determine in people though through pure observation. I think you have to really understand the way a person processes information, comes to decisions, etc. to get a sense of it. I understand what Protean is getting at, though I am not nearly as familiar with this S/N question as she is.

    I have an ISTJ bff and it's only because of years of knowing her that when I learned she was an "s" that it made sense to me. Because I knew how she took some things literally and had a tertiary Fi (or is that quand..ary?) and how differently we approached problems and saw things. I knew of these differences before I got into Myers-Briggs and way before she took the test. It was an "a-ha" moment and my point of reference for S-N differences. I also briefly dated an ISFJ and I was joking once and she got annoyed and said, "Don't over think things". That kind of sums up to me the perception of the S/N difference.

    But yeah, 25% are N's? Whhhooooo-hooo! I feel special.

    And maybe it's because I am ENFP and it's considered an "eccentric/independent" type, but I caught a loooooooot of flak growing up for being "different/strange/weird". Seeing it through a lens of S/N difference though made some of that more understandeable and making it understandable helps deal with it.

    And if I also count in all the companies/co workers I've worked at/with where there was a definite mismatch , if I attribute S/N divide to that as well --

    Yep, 'N's are rare. Or maybe I'm thinking of 'NP'. Let's say 15%-20% for NP?

    ^ Heh yeah, ENFP is by far the most common N type, especially for females.

    Of course, all of us NPs are lame because, even though only 1 in 3 people is an N, something like 7 out of 10 Ns are also Ps.

    So it's really NJs who are the special ones.

    I think there are actually more N's than people think, especially these days. Some say the population is around 25% N, 75% S. I disagree, I think it's more along the lines of 40% N, 60% S, just from the people I've been around. I know I voted lower, but if I truly think about, I would vote 40-45% N.
