    It seems rather unfair to say that a person isn't inquisitive just because they aren't interested in those specific pursuits :steam:
    Precisely.

    To be fair, I don't think N's are necessarily interested in philosophy, either. I have my own personal philosophical beliefs, but I don't see why I should care about the beliefs of people who have long since been dead, or even whether I share the beliefs of those persons. Really, what's the point of reading the beliefs of another if you share similar beliefs?

    With that said, I think the Big 5 is horribly biased, also, far more biased than the MBTI. In fact, I think it's the Big 5's correlation with the MBTI (even though the Inquisitiveness/Openness is not that correlated to S/N) that creates a bias in the MBTI community.

    And I truthfully don't think any type is truly open-minded or willing to change, because it's natural to fear the unknown. In fact, I would suspect that people who think are the ones more likely to fear the unknown.

    You raised a good point which brings me to the following: Is it me, or do those that are strongly intellectual seem to have more phobias than the average person?

    Yes! And I also think that an N is more likely to be diagnosed with psychiatric disorders and/or have a break from reality, Ns are also more likely to engage in magical thinking. Ns, by nature, aren't realists.

    Now that you mention it, I cannot recall any prolific scientists, inventors, authors, and other creative/intellectual types whose personalities could be considered "normal".

    Correct.

    Except I would add that the psych hospitals are full of NPs and the prisons are full of SPs. My reason for this conclusion is, allegedly two characteristics of the perceiving preference are: Care-free & Spontaneous. (Judging or Perceiving Preference)

    For some odd reason society frowns on the carefree and spontaneous ...

    There's a good way of putting it.

    NPs are at the psychiatric hospitals, NJs are reclusive hermits that everyone is intimidated by. SPs are in either jail or in the emergency room for getting themselves injured in some sort of reckless stunt. NJs also go to jail because they're megalomaniacs...and, I might add, they're probably the ones who get executed for their crimes!

    And the SJs, of course, are the do-gooders who get the moré or law breakers committed or sentenced!

    Extroversion |||||||||||||| 56%
    Orderliness |||||||||||||| 54%
    Emotional Stability |||||||||||||| 60%
    Accommodation |||||||||||||| 56%
    Inquisitiveness |||||||||||| 50%


    Extroversion results were moderately high which suggests you are, at times, overly talkative, outgoing, sociable and interacting at the expense of developing your own individual interests and internally based identity.

    Orderliness results were medium which suggests you are moderately organized, structured, and self controlled while still remaining flexible, varied, and fun.

    Emotional Stability results were moderately high which suggests you are relaxed, calm, secure, and optimistic.

    Accommodation results were moderately high which suggests you are, at times, overly kind natured, trusting, and helpful at the expense of your own individual development (martyr complex).

    Inquisitiveness results were medium which suggests you are moderately intellectual, curious, and imaginative.
