Simple Question: Is there a type that seems "over-represented" in your school, workplace, community, circle of friends, etc. compared to statistical projections?
I know there are a variety of statistics on 'type frequency' and at least one specifically for the US, but feel free to quote other sources.
(And yes, I'm aware there are *similar* threads on the forum, but NONE that ask this specific question, just mentioning this to cover my modding behind)
I was inspired originally to make this the "ENFPs falling from trees" thread but lest there be any hating on "yet another ENFP" thread, I decided to add INTPs into the mix. Har har har.
Meaning, this thread was spurred by the realization that there are waaaaaay more ENFPs and INTPs that I know than statistically likely. Test confirmed ENFPs (okay, I'm counting Facebook tests here, I know, shoot me) practically fall from freaking trees around me! I don't feel special anymore, mang! And I run into a looooot of INFPs. (Okay, I know some INFP members have stated their skepticism that INFPs are really as frequently encountered irl as people think and are mistyped.) Maybe going to a liberal arts college tipped the scales and started that trend? Har har har, again.
So I'd love to hear your own observations of "over represented types" in your rl and observations as to why this may be the case. And in my case, am I doing "statistics" wrong, online typing tests suck, or am I just noticing certain types more so they seem 'over represented?' I've heard from certain other members say they seem to know an awful lot of XXXX type and I wonder if there is something to that in terms of natural laws of 'type attraction' or whatnot or it's just coincidence or misinterpretation.
Look forward to your input!
