    The changes look pretty insignificant. A few more ENFPs and ISFPs as compared to 2012. A little increase in ISFJs and INFPs. 2014 numbers include active numbers of each type that have been on since Jan 1 of 2014.

    Not sure what differentiates each group in the legend. If "2014" includes "active numbers of each type that have been on since Jan 1 of 2014", does that include the members who "joined before 2010", or only those who joined in 2014? What comprises the "2012" group? Did you go by members' current specified type? How many members did not have a stated type (and presumably were not included in the graph)?

    The last two numbers are similar. One was midyear looking at percentage of posters that had been on since Jan 1 2012, which was taken in the middle of 2012. The next one was posters that had been on since Jan 1 2014. The first number is total members that had been on prior to 2010 (that is a larger set of numbers)

    I’m not arguing against numbers..
    But this data is comparing total number of types in three periods..
    What I really mean is.. total number.. That seems weird.
    How come we have more introverted members?
    Too many INTJs? ITNPs?
    I’d agree with INFJ.
    But I thought this forum was full of extraverted..

    Fitting oneself into a system often appeals to introverts, especially given their rarity. I imagine INT is an appealing self-typing, as many introverts feel cold and isolated from others (and perhaps more intuitive and rational to justify their isolation). Nevermind that introversion in the traditional sense has nothing to do with MBTI, and warmth doesn't even correlate with F types (superficial warmth with Fe, perhaps).

    Though introverted types could be more drawn to personality forums (rather than, say, achieving material goals) for validation, I get the impression many don't delve deep enough to understand the functions and consider extraverted MBTI types (or S types, for that matter ).

    Introverted intuitives tend to be more interested in personality type than others. It is sometimes astounding to me how many INFJs and INTJs are online on these forums given how uncommon they are.

    In the spoiler are November 2014 membership stats (from early this month) for Typology Central and Personality Café. For each type, the first percentage is the percentage of that type at the forum, the second percentage (in parentheses) is the estimated "general population" percentage from the official MBTI folks (from this page), and the final number on the right is the self-selection ratio for that type — i.e., the ratio of the forum percentage to the general population percentage.



    Looking at the PerC stats (the larger sample): 62% of the members are INs (as compared to 11% of the general population), and 83% of the members are N's (as compared to 27% of the general population).

    Every S type has a self-selection ratio of 0.6 or lower, and no N type has a self-selection ratio below 1.0. And the lowest self-selection ratio for the IN types is 13 times higher than the highest self-selection ratio for the ES types.

    The stats suggest than an average MBTI IN is something like 40 times mores likely than an average MBTI ES to join a personality-related internet forum.

    And the stats for TC are strikingly similar to the ones for PerC.

    First of all, just saw this thread, very interesting stats. Good post.

    Second, it's probably because they are so rare that they have flocked online for like minded stimulating discussion.

    Another great find.

    I was going to post before you did that I bet PerC is very similar. Certain personalities, for varying reasons, are just more prone to being online, and crave discussions they just don't find IRL as much. My half-baked theory, anyway.

    As one of the only 2 top Extroverts, I kind of accidentally found MBTI forums, and personally, it was very refreshing to find a group of ENTPs with whom to banter with. I've known some ENTPs/INTJs and others in my life that drift in and out, but when they're not around, I suffer from a lack of stimulating conversation.

    Nice to know I can always find it on an MBTI forum.


    edit: I love the irrefutable consistencies of all these stats.
    I've had this ice cream bar, since I was a child!
