    The internet has things that interest Ns and Ss.

    Most forums for example are an N thing. (this forum proves it).
    A site with clothes, fashion, stuff to buy etc will be more likely visited by Ss.
    Ns rule the blogs.
    Ss might rule the cars forums though.
    Ss will most likely want to use the internet for entertainment.

    Anyway. You get the idea. You can't just generalize and say there are more Ns because there are more Ns on this forum for example. The internet is for everybody, but Ns spend more time on it.

    I don't think the majority of people on the internet are iNtuitives. I'd say that there are slightly more Ns on the internet than in real life, but that doesn't mean much. If 1 out of 4 people are Ns in real life, maybe 1 out of 3 people are Ns on the internet. That's not a huge difference.

    Ns are greatly overrepresented on typology forums because Ns are attracted to theories, and the MBTI is a theory. Ss tend to be wary of the MBTI because it's so theoretical and, for the most part, unsupported by concrete, factual evidence. Also, there are plenty of people who have mistyped themselves because of shoddy online tests. (Being interested in intellectual pursuits is not an N-specific trait, even though plenty of online tests make it seem that way. Creativity isn't an N-specific trait, either.) I'd say that about 10-20% of the users on here who think that they're Ns are actually Ss, if not more.

    The only dichotomy that varies substantially on the internet is Extroversion/Introversion. I don't think I need to explain why.

    I'm going to have to disagree that "Ns rule the blogs" I'm sure plenty of ISTJs have political blogs (lots of ISTJs are in politics IRL), and many ISFJs and ISFPs have more creative blogs.

    I really wish you people would look more at the types of writers, artists, and directors. Jesus.

    I like writing as a form of communication, so I could see that (just my 2c. Assuming I'm still ISFP). Personally, I don't like blogging.. it's a bit forced, I guess? I'm not good at thinking of ideas for thread subjects either, for that matter. But I like getting out my thoughts in writing, as a reactionary/response thing, like here or email. I don't have much to say or people I can always connect with offline either, so I gravitate to the internet.. there's more opportunity to meet interesting people.

    1. Of course these forums are more of an N thing. It has to do with typology for crying out loud. How are forums not relating to typology more N?
    2. I think people who write rule the blogs. Typically I think of a writer as being an SF or NF.
    3. Can't argue with that.
    4. True, but N's don't? I sincerely doubt that all N's are intellectuals.

    I really don't think of the internet as an N place, but as an introverted place.

    This thread seems to have devolved into which types blog. And I think it's the same thing - all types might blog, but they use the medium differently. The N's I know personally are blogging about politics or meandering ruminations, and the one confirmed S-type I know who blogs posts pictures of her decorating ideas.

    Should we even dare to think about it?

    Who's on Encyclopedia Dramatica? I'd bet money that most people on Cracked: writers and posters are Ns.

    No they're not and no it doesn't. This forum is about a subject that has very limited interest from the general population. If this forum proves anything, it's that, since this is a very small forum compared to those with subjects of general interest.

    A site with clothes, fashion, stuff to buy etc will be more likely visited by Ss.
    Ns rule the blogs.
    Ss might rule the cars forums though.
    Ss will most likely want to use the internet for entertainment.
    Now you're on to something, but I would add - not just entertainment but all sorts of practical purposes such as parenting advice, financial, vacation planning, politics, etc.

    ??

    So, why did you start a topic asking why it's mostly Ns on the internet?
