    Default MBTI + Colleges

    There are recommended college majors for each type, why not recommended colleges?

    I have nothing to offer, but maybe someone else does?
    A colleague of the great scientist James Watson remarked that Watson was always “lounging around, arguing about problems instead of doing experiments.” He concluded that “There is more than one way of doing good science.”
    It was Watson’s form of idleness, the scientist went on to say, that allowed him to solve “the greatest of all biological problems: the discovery of the structure of DNA.” It's a point worth remembering in a society overly concerned with efficiency.

    Wild Guess on overall culture:

    Dartmouth - NF
    MIT, University of Chicago - NT
    Notre Dame, Vanderbilt - SJ

    Around 70% of the alumni of Carleton College, MN, are INTJs (one f my colleagues did the data collections and, anecdotally, three out of my four relatives who went there were INTJs...the fourth was ESTJ and always felt a bit out of synch)

    There are definitely archetypes to campuses, but once you get into a major/department, the diversity appears.

    Holy Crap

    It reminds me of the deserted island thread a short while ago....

    Edit: Is there a moat around the school?

    I am proud to announce that I was lurking on a college-forum thread about MBTI, and the first person to post "ENTP" as a result was from Harvey Mudd. Booooyahhh.
