    Default MBTI correlations with other systems

    the reason im posting these is not just to show how much correlation there is, but by looking at these, you might see new aspects of some MBTI dichotomy, or how certain letter is affecting to other behavior(in general), that isnt related to letter itself.

    one thing people should keep in mind is, that with many of those correlations, there might be other MBTI scale messing up with some score. for example, if ENFP and INFJ would get opposite results on something(that doesent(or is even expected to) correlate with E or J) because of F and N orientation, neither would show up in correlation, because the opposites would negate each others. this is the reason why i didnt want to list under .20 correlations, also this small correlations might be because of some variation in sample people or people typed incorrectly.

    Correlations between MBTI dicotomies and CPI 260 scales:

    Dealing with others category:
    Dominance (Prosocial interpersonal power and influence): E .61, T .25

    Capacity for Status (Ambition for challenge and social status): E .53, N .35

    Sociability (Social participation): E .70

    Social Presence (Poise and comfort with attention and recognition): E .49, N .33, P .23

    Self-acceptance (Sense of personal worth and self-confidence): E .57, N .20

    Independence (Self-sufficiency and self-directedness): E .41, T .27

    Empathy (Capacity to understand and respond to others’ needs): E .47, N .35

    Responsibility (Conscientiousness and follow-through): J .27

    Social Conformity (Conformance with social norms and customs): J .33

    Self-control (Cautiousness and self-regulation): S .23, J .34

    Good Impression (Tact and positive self-presentation): S .21 , J .38

    Communality (Conventionality of behavior and attitudes): J .26

    Well-being (Overall sense of health and optimism): E .31

    Tolerance (Open-mindedness and respect for others): none has over .20 correlation

    Motivations and Thinking Style:
    Achievement via Conformance (Motivation within organized settings): E .22, T .21, J .51

    Achievement via Independence (Motivation within unstructured settings): N .29

    Conceptual Fluency (Comfort with intellectual and conceptual matters): E .30, N .21

    Personal Characteristics:
    Insightfulness (Analytical insight into the motivations of others): none has over .20

    Flexibility (Adaptability and comfort with change): N .45, F .25, P.46

    Sensitivity (Tough- versus tender-mindedness): I .29, F .39

    Work-Related Measures:
    Managerial Potential (Inclination for supervisory responsibilities): E .33, T .21, J .26

    Work Orientation (Sense of dedication to work): E .20, J .26

    Creative Temperament (Individualization and capacity for innovativeness) E .29, N .49, P .38

    Leadership (Initiative and effectiveness in leading others): E .51, T .24, J .21

    Amicability (Cooperation and friendliness): J .24

    Law Enforcement Orientation (Conventional and practical values): S .32, T .30, J .35


    Firo B and MBTI correlations:

    Expressed Inclusion: E .54, F .20
    Wanted Inclusion: E .33
    Expressed Control: E .21, T .24
    Wanted Control: none go over 20, but F types take this slightly (.16)
    Expressed Affection: E .49, F .31
    Wanted Affection: E .29, F .29

    as you can see from the scores, E types are more prone of expressing things, even without wanting them so much. T types are more prone of expressing control, even tho they dont want it in general all that much.

    The whole basis of my MBTI/Galen correlation is that for FIRO:

    Expressed Inclusion: E/I
    Wanted Inclusion: Directing/Informing (From the Interaction Styles)
    Expressed Control: Cooperative/Pragmatic (In which T does figure; it's more pragmatic)
    Wanted Control: structure/motive (the factor that ties SP with NF and SJ with NT).
    Expressed Affection: (Might also figure in E/I)
    Wanted Affection: (Might also figure in directing/informing)

    (Arno Profile System is an instrument that uses FIRO with the Galen humor temperaments, and while the FIRO results are disclaimed as inborn types, the APS temperaments are supposed to be inborn and would be more likely corresponding to type).

    It would be interesting to see a correlation done directly with those factors, but the correlators don't seem to acknowledge Keirsey's and Berens' theories.

    As for Big 5, MBTI Step III adds a factor called "Comfort/Discomfort" that is supposed to correspond to Neuroticism. The subscales for this were actually included in the factor analysis, but then dropped from what became Step II.
    It doesn't seem anyone has correlated this version of MBTI with Big 5 yet either.
    APS Profile: Inclusion: e/w=1/6 (Supine) |Control: e/w=7/3 (Choleric) |Affection: e/w=1/9 (Supine)
    Ti 54.3 | Ne 47.3 | Si 37.8 | Fe 17.7 | Te 22.5 | Ni 13.4 | Se 18.9 | Fi 27.9
