    Default Race, Culture and MBTI

    i definitely believe that a culture has a lot to do with your own MBTI type. i'm not saying that all japanese are ISTJ's or whatever, but different countries have different type spreads, and it is my belief that culture and one's upbringing more or less has something to do with one's type.

    personally, growing up in hong kong, everyone was busy at work, finishing that report etc. therefore, i would not be surprised if there were more ISTJ's there than other countries. they have the task skills after all. according to ISTJ facts, they are also more common among african americans, for reasons i could only guess.

    any attempts on what cultures have more of what types? if you don't wish to offend other cultures, it's fine to speak about your own.

    I definitely agree with this. I have thought about how "the Western Culture" (primarily thinking of the consumerism/commercialism) seems to be an E__P one: Extraverted Perception, whether Se or Ne, is favored and sometimes even expected. Ni and Si might be equally disfavored, at least as Leading functions (there's a lot more space for them in more traditional societies).

    Another obvious culture thing is T - men, F - women. Much would change here if children were raised equally regardless of gender.

    Sweden favours ESTJ's, if one should stick to keirseys behaviourism stuff. I definitely think ESTJ is more common here than in many other places, since I see them a lot. Not just the estimated 10%, more like 30%. I think it is because Swedes are generally encouraged to be practical people, it is also "wrong" to be introverted up here. Or to "daydream" or be unpractical in the typical intuitive fashion. Last but not all, Swedes are supposed to be orderly and scheduled. Very, very J.
    I suppose we have a lot in common with Germany.

    Finnish men are ISTx.
    Finnish women are ESFJ.
    (At least those are the stereotypes.)

    But, yes, well, I see lots of ISxJs here. They are everywhere. I could guess at least 1/4 of population, if not even 1/3.
    (Finns are supposed to work loyally and effectively and keep their mouths shut. It's an easy place for an introvert to live in. )

    The french national/historical identity is intuitive, but I don't know if the modern population reflects that.

    Also I'd say that the history of man is dominated by intuitives and most nations are best known for the actions of their intuitive citizens.
