    ....One thing I would love to see is the age distribution in these S vs. N battles.

Most young people are fluent in the uses of Internet these days.
    Hey

    You can't assume sample size with the likes of face book, they don't care about the statistics unless they are selling you advertising... So unfortunately you can't tell how bit it it so assume it's small unless they say it isn't...

    Why not ask the moderators if they have collated the S N statistics for this site, many do list their type when tey register (although this needs to be taken with a pinch of salt because there are a fair few who then change).


    It may be that S types are using the net for different things not face book or psycology sites... maybe they use amazon or book tickets bank etc... check facts etc rather than chat rooms.... all hypothesis....

    As for the MBTI data I posted early - it is from a global site... One thing is there may be a skew in different countries but the rough proportions would match the global stat....

    PS the UK showed less N's than the global stats... it's worth noting that the global stats will be mainly USA - given it's an online tool and it's liable to be heavily used by US people than other countries... Uk N type was around 19%.... The questionnaire I delveoped was taken from MBTI and then shortened...

    Hi
    Here is a link on MBTI stats - different data than the stuff I used when I compared with my research.....but not massively different from the stuff I quoted earlier

    Meyers-Briggs Statistics

    Can't say the population profiles... (possibly US/UK skewed given they use MBTI)

    Student Poll 1 - 59% N 98/165

    Source 2 - 74% N 129/173

    Source 3 - 58% N 217/372

    Student Medicine 4 - 76% N 78/102 - Mostly ENFJs/ENTJs and INTJs.

    Then I got bored of searching up links. Based on this... It just runs parrallel with the whole "Ss don't exist on the interwebs" which is most likely false. That or sensors aren't interested in personality quizzies, but... they're so much fun! :O

    PS. It's obvious that my statistics will be biased. xD

    You are right, I am making inferences as to what I personally think the proportions are.

    But I'll give you some facts now... these are from a website that I found online talks acquired statistical data regarding type and population: http://www.elps.hs.iastate.edu/hged/...I_Dan_Main.pdf - Go to slide 31.

    Slide 31 shows the differences between the United States and the United Kingdom:




    It is interesting, and it shows that the U.S. is more I, more N, more F, and more P than the U.K.

    TCO

    Those stats look more right, but please don't display them as facts.... there are no sample size, they are skewed as a student population etc etc etc...

    In order for something to be statistically valid it needs a minimum of 1000 interviews per country - and I'd say somewhere like the US needs a lot more than that...

    sorry don't mean to be picky... but careful what you beleive in... That said the stats look similar to other stats I've seen...

    I would think that a conversation you had in May which Cited old research conducted by Keirsy is likely to be more accurate albe it considerably old.

    http://www.typologycentral.com/forum...tatistics.html

    It might be worthwhile pointing out that no research is fact, it's all different degrees of indicative... unless it's a census, and the population is static and unchanging, all research is prone to sampling error - such as skewed population, device error, time constraints, etc etc the list goes on forever... Some research is better than others but non of it can be taken as pure fact.

    This probalem is doubly compounded by the MBTI being a preference test... some peoples scores move dependng on how they feel - at least this is what they say... I don't beleive it personally, but it's self projected opinions not facts either...

    The big picture is about 20-25% are N typs probably globably with some variations per country... it's not that common....

    I find it somewhat amusing that the figures are showing that the US is more INFP oriented than the UK. The E-I already destroys all my misconceptions about the US being more extraverted in general than the UK.

    See my comments about the limits of the research.

    Actually the UK is more introverted but not by much... remember MBTI definiton of Intoverted is where you do your thinking not if you are a socal person (although often they equate but not always).

    In my survey I got a slight skew towards introvertedness in the UK but not massive

    The reason there aren't more S Types here, is the same reason there aren't more blacks in white supremacist forums.
    Some of the posts made about sensors in this forum are tantamount to insanity.
    I don't blame them for not wanting to join.
    The general atmosphere is not exactly inviting.

    If we want more S Types here, we need to change the prevailing attitude.

    I suspect there is a lot more too it than that... there is a fair amount of type bashing all over.....

    It's too skewed to just be a content issue (and it was prevelent on the face book data so it's not just about here.....

    It's not important to me at all... TCO was curious about it, but there are loads of hypothesis one can muse over.

    S types transact more than socalise
    S types are more focused on family and more traditional social activities
    S types use chat forums generally less
    S types are less interested in psycology

    Etc etc.... Loads of stuff more

    I didn't think for a minute the reality of the situation would be important to you.

    I've had many PM's with S's who would fully agree with what I wrote.
    The atmosphere is not exactly inviting.

    The fact that you are blithely unaware of the depth of the problem, begs the question:
    How can you call yourself inuitive?

    The word, "obtuse" would be better suited to describe your claims and observations.
