    It would be safe to say that the INFJ personality is more realistically greater than 1 or 2% of the population based simply on probability, to gather a 1% estimate off of a small testing sample yields suspicion.

    We also must consider the fact that these statistics were derived from dichotomy based testing, which is shunned here.
    Also, many true INFs in general may have mistyped due to societal pressures to conform to more T and S like traits and behaviors. They may have literally fooled themselves into thinking they are different types.

Several papers cite this as well, but there seems to be some inconsistency with the journal authors which raises a few alarm bells. The biggest that Elizabeth Meyers was supposadly part of this. Sadly, my university does not have access to this paper, and when I go to the journal site itself, it doesn't seem to list it. There's lots of studies for type frequencies within various situations, careers, etc. but that would take A LOT of work to aggregate all that (and even then I suspect it would be incomplete), and I don't have the time.

    I just like hard evidence for statistics and stuff .
    I'd be interested to read that.

    Any study on type frequency has to take into account who the sample population is, region, class, etc. If we tested the employees of a software company, for example, we'd most certainly find a larger percentage of NTs than would be found in the general population.

    Also, we can complain about all of the "fake" INFJs on internet forums, but it is likely there is going to be a much larger representation of them found in online communities, disproportionate to "real world" frequency of that type, as NFs tend to be driven to be identity seekers or to learn about other types. In general, this seems to hold true for INTs and INFs on the internet. A gross overgeneralization not meant to offend or stereotype, but if an NT or NF takes a personality test, I'm willing to bet they are far more likely to want to learn more, to keep digging--especially INFPs and INFJs. A S-J or S-P might say, "cool, I'm this type", accept the results, and go on with their life, hence why they are a greater part of the general population but tend to be unicorns and diamonds in internet typology communities.

    it's not all it's cracked up to be. they can be pretty nifty, but their amount of niftiness is in overload, so they often end up kind of insane

    I mean that too much pondering over intricacies and too much emotional sensitivity can be paralyzing.
