    Jennifer--thanks for that detailed, helpful reply! I will keep that in mind.





    Lookin'--go to church.



    heh.

    No, but seriously, go to church. I don't care if you're an atheist, you have to meet some other ENFJs. These have always been the people involved in things like Youth Ministry, Counseling, Teaching English as a 2nd Language/helping new immigrants adapt to teh culture/etc.
    They are bright and do the "people" jobs better than anyone else I know.

    Specifically, my experience has seen them at social events. Not just "get together" social events, but purposeful, growing type social events. (i.e. the youth programs where they can mentor, or those women's groups where people share, etc.)

    Seriously, go to church. You will not regret it. Do you have any religious beliefs? Aren't ENFJs most likely to believe in the higher power? (But hey, I won't stereotype, because you're talking to an INTJ, which is least likely.)

    This cracks me up, and the reason that it's hard to take many of the discussions of type theory very seriously on the forums. Look at the poll, and tell me there is no subjective biasness toward intuition. If you overwhelmingly vote that INFJ is the rarest male, then some form of EST would logically have to be considered for female.

    FWIW, NFJs are the rarest types of males, INTs are the rarest females. There is a bias here, but not the one you describe.

    Why?

    That doesn't even fit real-life data for me.

    I know only one INTJ female in real life, while I know a number of ESTx females. Since there are more sensors than intuitives, it would make sense that INT women would probably be more scarce.

    No empirical evidence to support this, only subjective opinions. I know quite a few female INTs, so again are you basing a truth on your subjective opinion?

    I would consider CAPT's 1,000,000 MBTI type database to count as empirical evidence, within the framework of administrating MBTI. His subjective view matches up pretty well with that.

    Based on what PT? Jung declares that in general, men are S & Ts and women are N & Fs. There is no empirical evidence to support this.

    Of course it was subjective. I was very clear about that.

    My problem was with the comment of yours that I quoted in my post: Why is it logical for ESTx to be the "least common female" just because INFJ might be the "least common male"? I personally do not see the connection.

    The subjective comment was just thrown in as a freebie, like an "And besides" comment.

    Anytime you'd like to explain your reasoning on the comment ABOVE that I have paraphrased, please feel free.

    Keyword. There is no indication of this, and based on what I have read about type functions, the ISTP comes closer to resembling INTJ than INTP. Ti and Ni are both have a need for complexity. The difference is Ti base their decisions on ruling principles and Ni from a gestation. Se and Te both resemble because of their need for empirical evidence. The difference comes in terms of action wherein Se may decide to take action, with confidence they will learn as they go. Te must have as much knowledge of the object, up to mastery, before they will act. This is best evidenced in comparing the ENTJ/ESTP.

    Again, based on over a million tests. The population breakdown is pretty well known, with a huge sampling across multiple forms. I may disagree with MBTI's distribution techniques but it is difficult to argue with the population preferences within it. (By this, I mean using FFM or another personality system entirely, which is based on an entirely different theory.)

    I don't believe Jung said that exactly - he said that society expects men to be 'ST' types and women to be NF types (animus and anima) and that many must repress their nature. All of this is based not on his functional views but his archetype stuff... so I'm not sure it mixes perfectly either. This is also simply because he didn't see the functions the way MBTI does, so the meaning between being ST and NF is very different from his theory to the current MBTI view.
