    Which countries are typed? I'd be interested as to whether or not there are any INFP countries out there.

    According to the author, Burma and Nepal are INFP.

    Derreck, maybe you'd find it useful.

    Italy is puzzling. E for sure, as goes for F and S.
    But:
    Their strong feelings about how things should be, combined with tradition would make them SJ'ish.
    Their chaotic and hedonist nature would make them SP.
    ESFP?

    ESFP in the North, ESFJ in the more conservative South, where Catholicism still has a very strong presence, and they will never ever work on Sundays

    LOL That's for sure.
    "The people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them that they are being attacked and denounce the peacemakers for lack of patriotism, and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in any country."

    Japan is ISFJ. According to the author and I'd tend to agree, I live there.

I asked him what he meant by "nature" and he started referencing the countries my dad is associated with. ( Dad was half Norwegian and half Swedish. ) I argued that there were different MBTI types for each country, versus personality traits associated with countries. He said "I don't know anything about this MBTI stuff, but you're telling me that different nationalities don't have notable personality traits ? How many German comedians do you know of ? But...the trains run on time. But you will think of humor and other traits when you think of Ireland, for example." I said that these are just stereotypes, but he insisted these were formed for a reason etc.

    Do you associate any personality traits with countries ?
    We Germans do have a sense of humour.
    It is a little different from the humour of the others.

    It is not true nobody laughs at our jokes.
    The other Germans do.

    Apropos many of the best American comedians are of a German background.

    My personal observations:

    Germany - ISTJ or INTJ (Germans have a philosophical soul but gosh do Germans also love their rules!)
    USA - ESTJ
    England - ISFP or ISTP
    Japan - ISTJ or ISFJ
    Nigeria - ESTJ
    Thailand - ESFP (It's all about the fun!)
    New Zealand - ISFJ ?
    Australia - ESFP ?
    Brazil - ESFP
    China - ESTJ
