    Default Most similar types (according to answers on OkCupid)

    I took everyone that stated their type on OkCupid (~65,000 people, 1/3rd female) and looked at how similar, on average, they were to each other (gender and sexual orientation had to be the same). What do you think?

    ENFJs, on average, seem to have the highest overall similarity to other types:

    ENFJ
    INFJ
    INTJ
    INTP
    ENTJ
    ENTP
    ENFP
    INFP
    ISTP
    ESTJ
    ISFJ
    ESTP
    ESFP
    ESFJ
    ISTJ
    ISFP
    56.55% 56.51% 56.48% 56.43% 56.43% 56.42% 56.26% 56.26% 55.91% 55.79% 55.78% 55.75% 55.66% 55.64% 55.55% 55.52%


    Similarity when one letter is different (for example ENTPs were compared with ENFPs for the Thinker/Feeler average):

    Identical
    Sensing/Intuitive
    Judger/Perceiver
    Feeler/Thinker
    Extrovert/Introvert
    57.03% 56.52% 56.51% 56.42% 56.37%


    Similarity by Socionics intertype relationship (I flipped the last letter for introverts, so an INTP, for example, becomes an INTj):

    Identical (INTp - INTp)
    Comparative (INFp - INTp)
    Quasi-Identical (INTp - INTj)
    Look-a-like (INTp - ISTp)
    Mirror (ENTj - INTp)
    Benefit (INTp - INFj)
    Super-Ego (INTp - ISFp)
    57.03% 56.51% 56.51% 56.43% 56.37% 56.12% 56.08%

    Contrary (ENTp - INTp)
    Supervision (ENFj - INTp)
    Activity (INTp - ISFj)
    Illusionary (ENFp - INTp)
    Conflicting (ESFj - INTp)
    Semi-Duality (ESTp - INTp)
    Duality (ESFp - INTp)
    56.01% 55.97% 55.74% 55.67% 55.60% 55.58% 55.26%

    Looks like all types are so similar to each others and to other people of the same type that if you set me error marginal even a little based the possibility of people typing themselves wrong, everyone is inside the error marginal. I suspect that this is about the match questions, so it seems like type doesent matter on majority of them.

    People compare me to xNFJs a lot. I think sometimes, similarities between types have a lot to do with functions.
