    Default Which MBTi types tend to be more attracted to MBTi and similar personality tests?

    That's a question and a food for thought, because I tried to search this sometimes but it loops to itself so I don't find what I want.
    In a similar way that we question for example "are there more INFPs or INTPs attracted to atheism", which types do you think are more attracted to personality tests and which other types might be uninterested?
    Of course, every type is there on this forum, but are there some statistics which types or letters have more preference to visit these forums and which are less frequent or express a distrust in these tests?

    I am just really curious. I am really interested in MBTi and other personality measurements and deep discussions about the subjects. I thought it was because I am lost and I want to discover things about myself, maybe as an INFP I am lost, but other people are more certain about who they are with higher self-esteem, so they could think these tests are not for them, because they don't need someone else to tell them who they are.

    So, anyway what are the usual types of people who might be more attracted to these kinds of things? What do you thing? Or is there some statistic research done?

    NFs most likely, always in search of their identity.

    Not a bad guess but, as the stickied OP shows, if you're looking for the #1 two-letter combination, it's actually the INs who are the most disproportionately represented (and by a fairly substantial margin).

    And that's somewhat consistent with my RL experience with ENFPs and ENFJs, who've proven to be less interested in learning about the MBTI than I would have expected.

    It's true there's a decent-sized population of ENFPs at TC but, let's face it, they're mostly just here to meet INTJs.

    Yeah but for different reasons. Introverts are far more active in internet forums so it's no surprise that INs dominate this site.
    I supose NTs like MBTI for being a theoretical system that helps to understand the human personality, so more for the scientific aspects.
    But in general I say it's easier to get a NF to make a personality test.
    INFP is most common here I think.

    Of course we are!
    But we try to hide as good as we can. :P

    I would think INFs.

    Well, just to talk with them. You can't get that condensed amount of weirdness nearly as reliably IRL. And you know ENFPs just want to try all the flavors as much as possible.

    Though to be honest, I love talking about the MBTI online, but I'm not as into talking about it IRL, so I'm not sure it's necessarily right to equate the two. I don't think you can necessarily gauge person's level of interest in something by how much they expose themself to it in front of you - especially because the quality of interest and conversation you can get here online is so much higher than IRL.

    I think it attracts NFs and NTs equally (SF, ST quite less.) But NTs take it way too seriously and become their label way more than NFs do.

    NFs say the MBTI is fine as far as it goes, but you shouldn't forget that you can't really put people in neat little boxes, and that the most interesting aspects of someone's personality are generally the things that make them a unique individual!

    And NTs are happy to acknowledge that your personality includes aspects that aren't really covered by the MBTI and that make you a unique individual — but NTs respectfully suggest that, if you'd like to discuss those parts, you should probably find an NF who's interested.

    I hope this clears things up.
