I feel a lot of people who say they are INTJ aren't actually INTJ...I mean, could it be that you are filling out the form about a person you *want* to be and not being honest and filling it out about yourself. Because I know a lot of friends who think they're "loud, neat, on time" but they're not. Yet, if they were to take the MBTI, they would fill out "loud' 'neat' 'on time' And get like ExxJ. I feel like the most rare is like ISFP on this forum...like no one wants to be that. I think like 50% of this forum is just putting the MBTI they want...anyone catch my drift?? Or is it just me?
    Well, I just happened to start this a couple days ago:

    But you caught me! I'm really an ISFP .

    Yep. It's more affirming to grasp at the biggest most comfortable straw.

    Hah yeah!

    Although I would prefer my signature, (the part in red), if it were true of myself. Unfortunately im none of them.

    Me neither, besides I wouldn't want to be.

    Neither do I but I know a lot of people that don't want to be INTJ.

    I was always under the impression that most people want to be the type that they are.

    Becaues it's pretty easy to type as it, and most people need to be really convinced once they start believing in their type description.

    There's no shortage of tested INTJs in my town or at my workplace.

    Also, it's kinda dangerous to compare "results gathered from taking that one MBTI test one time and then forgetting about it" to "results gathered through actually reading descriptions and delving into concepts such as JCF, and introspecting with those deliberations in mind." For that reason, I tend to think that typology forum discussions of collected stats are usually kinda meaningless.

    Reminds me of an obscure forum, (where typology was not the main focus), I came across once while searching for something else, turns out 95% of the people on the forum typed as either INTJ or INFJ in one big thread.

    If I were even to consider using the word coincidence I would first have to have a coincidence measurement chip installed in my brain just so I could measure how little of a coincidence this actually was.

    In fact it was a perfect example of what is outlined in the quote above. It also could possibly be used as an example of the flaws in many of the internet created tests, which quite obviously lean towards a certain direction which if examined closely could more accurately be defined as "qualities people who are overly addicted to the internet and it's culture/s are most likely to exhibit".
