Imagine 16 different worlds where everyone was one certain type; like a world of INTJ's or a wold of ESFP's. What would these worlds be like, and how do you think societies would funtion with people of similar personalities?
A world of one type whose children are all taught to be one type when there are actually 16 types? Scaaaary.
Exactly.. how would the ISFP child fit into an ESFJ world?
Chaos would ensue.
Until eventually the system would have to bend for people outside of it..
Within a few generations you would have... Earth. Right back where you started.
Assuming MBTI is genetic? Do you think earth would fall apart with everyone having the same weaknesses, or do you think some people would develop different functions that are missing in order to survive?
Firstly, the type worlds need different physics as ours.
Take eg. a typical fantasy world where emotions influence reality (and not only by motivating people to do something), where it's your hope on a good harvest which makes the corn grow... an F world.
Or a world where hidden connections become reality once you make them... an N world.
Now I think the whole bunch will shift a bit, but differences would still occur. The biggest T in the F world will train his emotions because it's useful.
If you start from an all-(type) world, people will look closer and still find differences between characters. Characters will start to diverge, just because all sorts of people can be succesful.

I'd have to agree that subtypes would emerge. People would still diverge IF evolution "demanded" it. As in, the world still required all types of people or allowed all different types to achieve similar Darwinian fitness -- then people would "shift" to find a niche where they could maximize that. But at the same time, if a world were all one type, it would be optimized for that type over time. So I guess the divergence from the "normal" of that one type, in the initial generation, would carry through to subsequent ones. I don't think there would be increasing divergence over time.
Strychnine is all-natural,
So strychnine is all good.
It's Godly and righteous,
So eat it, you should. Who are you to refuse nature's will?
Don't use the multiquote; it was planted by the devil to deceive us.

A different type everyday - so no need to type me anymore. But feel free to enjoy the sound of your own asscrack.
