    Sasquatch is right...

    Being reflective doesn't make you dominant in the gene pool. Getting laid does.

    Sure, they breed, but do you really want that many breeders running around?

    If getting laid makes you dominant in the gene pool, why are ISTJ's and ISFJs the most frequent of the 16 types? (11 and 13 percent, respectively, source from Wiki)

    I don't particularly see these types as *spectacularly* successful in that department, heheh.

    My guess is that, in Darwinian terms, Si is probably selected for survival. Animals need to be constantly aware of their surroundings to stay alive, find food, and reproduce ( the essential function of Si), which explains why people who are Si-dominant are now so frequent in the human race.

    Judging (J) 71.88% Perceiving (P) 28.13%

    And is that why NJs are so rare, because they're the antithesis of Si and therefore pretty useless at that stuff?

    Agreed!

    Your existence, a case in point.

    Actually, Se would be more along that line. Si could explain why their offspring lived long enough to breed, though.

    Don't look at me. I've made a generous contribution to the gene pool.

    Only one of them appears to be an NJ, though.

    His NP genes appear to dominate.
    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”

    It seems to me that in terms of dominance it's like, SJ > SP > NP > NJ. From what I've noticed about INPs, it's not that they're alone, it's just that they feel alone.

    Heh, I find this discussion amusing. Mostly because some people take the OP seriously. But on top of that people assume that types are somehow genetic which is purely conjecture at this point.
