    Default Most likely to be interested in MBTIs?...Least likely?

    Which MBTI do you think is the most likely to know what type they are?
    For example, I think that the type that has the most MBTI-knowledgable and interested "members" (ahh I don't know what word to use) are INFPs...
    I tend to think Ns are probably more interested then Ss.

    How about the opposite?
    I think that the type that has the most members uninterested in MBTIs are ESTJs...

    Obviously these are not ALL individuals of these types...so there are obviously exceptions...these are just my opinions based off the type as a whole.

    What do you think??

    Probably most likely NF's would be interested since they are always looking for a deeper cause and stuff

    I've been thinking about it, and I'm not sure.


    I think the most likely are broken peoples, to say something.

    I blame an ENFP psychologist who caught me at a bad time. I don't know why any other ISTPs are interested though.

    Theoretically, introverts over extroverts (because they're more thought-oriented and look inside themselves), sensors over intuitives (because they're more abstract and understand the importance; also because sensors may not view MBTI types as practical and MBTI types are somewhat conceptual [though they are prevalent in real life]), feelers over thinkers (because they seem more interested in people, though this one not as much as the rest).

    I'd say INFPs because we're pretty in tune with ourselves.

    Obviously there are all different types of people who enjoy learning about MBTI types, this is just theoretically and generally.

    Anyone who stops for five minutes to examine themselves. And while MBTI may not be the ideal, it is also not the worst.
    'One of (Lucas) Cranach's masterpieces, discussed by (Joseph) Koerner, is in it's self-referentiality the perfect expression of left-hemisphere emptiness and a precursor of post-modernism. There is no longer anything to point to beyond, nothing Other, so it points pointlessly to itself.' - Iain McGilChrist

    Intuition doms are probably the most likely to be interested in MBTI and sensing doms are probably the least likely.

    I think NFs are the most likely to be interested in MBTI, SPs would probably be the least likely to be interested in MBTI.

    I've had a few conversations about it with my ISTP 9w8 brother, who's really intuitive (in a non-MBTI sense) about it. He's been quicker than many people I've talked to about it to understand it theoretically and note it playing out IRL. I especially like talking to him about it because he naturally seems to apply it with that ST realism and a grain of salt, whereas a lot of NFs are way too special snowflake about it and a lot of NTs are way too concerned about how their type makes them the smartest. He probably blames this ENFP for his introduction to it, too

    As for interest, yes, probably I>E, N>S, F>T, P>J. INFPs probably take the cake for most interested. Though simply from observation, I actually think ESFJs are probably the least statistically interested. Theoretically, categorization might be more appealing to Te than Fe, which could explain the slight preponderance of ESTJs and ESFPs on typology boards as compared to ESFJs. I'm thinking most ESFJs would probably rather just go straight to solving issues, instead of spending time trying to conceptualize them in a symmetric framework first.
