    Default Do nationalities tend to have a Personality Type? nationality and mbti

    for example, are Americans clearly an E (extroversion) rather than an I, just like Italians?
    Are Germans more of a T (Thinking) rather than a F?
    Can we link each type to one nationality?
    Examples?

    Don't know. You can in my opinion do something like look at the dominating views and behaviour of a society of a country and guess to which type it would fit best. Germany in my opinion is mostly an ISTJ country nowadays.

    Kind of mildly so. There's a very large amount of variation IMHO. The "dominating views" in a given country aren't necessarily indicative of what the majority of the population believes or wants, they're often the result of a combo of historic casuality and vocal minorities. Italy's "type" can vary a lot depending on the region.

    I think they're streotypes. I see Italy as an ESFP and USA as an ESxJ.

    sure, but stereotypes, more often than not, are based on some truths... Germany clearly favors T. It would be great to hear from those of you that live in any given country and also those of you that don´t live there, to see if there is a gap on perceptions.

    An old thread of mine discussed the same matter.

    Not discussed but rather poured each other's two cents on it.

    Read it online before regarding MBTI and a high propensity for Japanese to be typed such. You know, the introverted Fe thing they exude. Upholding a sense of pride and decorum regardless of how you necessarily feel; demure.
