    The author of the magazine bases this on several studies. For example the one with the life expectancy is the result of an analysis
    of 6 million registered deaths in Germany from 1992 to 2007, stating that people born in autumn and winter live longer than those born in spring and summer.

    I found this quite interesting, so I want to know now, if MBTI, Enneagram or whatsoever is is also influenced by the month of birth.
    I'm sorry I can't give a link for the article, since it was published in a german magazine and you would have to buy the whole edition
    and pay an interpreter, but you get my certificate that it isn't bullshit.

    February, INTJ. I was always tall for my age and have grappled with depression.

    INFP type 4 so/sx April

    I'm intrigued by this topic.

    INTJ Type 4 or 8. August. Fitting since Augustus is considered to be an xNTJ.

    March. ENFP 7. I've been struggling with depression (misdiagnosed with bipolar disorder) since I was a teen (so much for the myth of "ENFP 7s don't get depressed!" ). I was born and lived most of my life in a subtropic zone.

    I've read something about susceptibility to depression being tied to birth month/season. I don't think that type is though.

    I feel like this is a pile of horseshit? I see absolutely no reason what so ever how birth month could have even a slight influence on personality or type. I generally think it is a bad idea to over-extrapolate the data of research, because it often can lead one astray. If there is a link, I suspect it is really really weak. There are way more major factors that would influence personality.

    Sorry for sounding harsh, but no one has said it yet.

    Well, about the only scientific justification for time of year effects on personality have to do with the interaction of critical periods of development with environmental effects. One could imagine that being mostly stuck indoors for the winter during a critical period for physical development might turn someone away from physical pursuits (as a highly simplified example).

    Studies have, in fact, found such an effect (even though it's pretty slight). Of course, this means that such seasonal effects would offset by six months when comparing the northern and southern hemispheres (and such effects would be far more minor around the equator).

    While I can see that, I have a really hard time seeing how that could have a measurable effect on a specefic part of personality that MBTI measures. If just for the fact that even in the northern hemisphere, seasonal changes and differences vary quite a lot.

    If you've seen a study, I suppose that is something. There you have it though, it's very slight. Overall I don't think it would impact the person.
