    Default Month of birth and type [serious]

    So, I have just read an article in a scientific magazine according to which traits such as susceptibility for depression,
    the body size, life expectancy, etc. are related to the month one is born in.
    The factor isn't actually the month of birth but the seasons one has grown up in their mother's belly.
    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.

    I suppose you'd need to take into account the hemisphere where the person was born. There are some Australians/New Zealanders/etc here.

    Also, I think whatever conclusion you come up with using data from Germany won't work for a lot of other countries. Seasons can be much less differentiated depending on the place.

    Yes, but I suppose the overwhelming amount of people here are from the temperature zone of the northern hemisphere, so everything season-related might a little inaccurate, but I guess it still works.

    I've read somewhere that from statistics people who die of old age tend to die shortly after their birthday -- maybe it's a psychological effect that people 'hang on' until after their birthday?

    Sorry I can't provide a link or anything -- since I read that article when I was still in middle school. I think it's interesting though. I think in the past sick people who survived winter into spring tended to be able to recover, which can't be purely because it's getting warmer.

    Lots of people 'hang on' until their loved ones can make it to their bedside too...

    This is making me sad...

    I've heard this before.

    My birthday is in April and I'm an ISFP. Had been prone to depression most of my life.
