    IQ correlates with I-N-F-P. ENFP's are overrepresented amongst highly gifted people.

    Can't say for sure here, but they are above average (but IN > EN on average, so the ones you listed would "average" higher). But strictly speaking, the distribution is a major problem - average is a great way of giving the wrong impression.

    Actually it correlates with I-N-T-P, but the F/T is the one with least influence. And when I say the IQ of ENFPs is above average, it means they are also overrepresented amongst highly gifted people.

    OK. It depends on the studies. Which ones are you referring to?

    A proof guy, huh? This one is certainly great: SENG: Articles & Resources - Gifted kids at risk: Who's listening?

    I think most studies show IQ correlates very slightly with T, but again, it is the field of ptgatsby. :P

    It's really not

    However, I will say this - T correlates to sex, age and race. I have yet to see a study to use MBTI and control for this, so I have no idea for sure... But same goes for N (testing highschool students, as per your link, with MBTI is probably not the best way of doing the research.)

    A proof guy? I'm a "rational" and so are you.

    The problem with that article is that it does not examine the correlation between IQ and MBTI factors across a normal population. It only dicusses gifted children.

    Moutafi, Furnhamn & Crump (2003) showed that, if anything, intelligence correlated with F (even if slightly).

    I will not use an appeal to authority logical fallacy to argue my point of view and hope that you can understand my argument without me needing to refer to it (ironically, I just have though).

    IQ is the secret weapon to end any thread, I tell you.
