    Huh? Not if sensors outnumber intuitives, there wouldn't. Most sources I've read say Ss are three times as common as Ns, so in that case ISTJs would still outnumber INTPs if the four dichotomies are completely independent.

    I think it's more a flaw of the tests than the theory itself. Meaning, some questions that are designed to test only N/S, or only P/J, are actually influenced by both.

    So use that ESFP social charm and get more to join.

    Assuming you are an ESFP...I know you've been questioning your S/N preference. If you are an ENFP you have plenty of company here.

    This is the internet, in case you haven't noticed. All those INs are basement dwellers interested in geeky stuff, who thus ended up in debate forums.

    There is, actually. I assume Judgers, being organized, dutiful and responsible, would be more prone to consider themselves commonsense and fact-based, and thus score S. Perceivers on the other hand, are more likely to be unrealistic, abstract and dreamy - N.

    I think the correlation is pretty small though.
    The correlation is actually extremely high. Only 15% of Judgers are N (8% of the general population), but 40% of Perceivers are so (19% of the general population).

    Wow, when I look at that and compare people's type now.

    They change.

    A lot.

    I'm surprised to see people's previous types.

    Some make perfect sense, some don't.

    I think that some NJs test NP for that reason, or borderline J/P.

    Where are you getting these stats from, homes?

    I think there's more of a correlation between how people test and the nature of those test questions (i.e., the creator associating Ns with Perception and that bias coloring the questions and results, etc) than any real correlation between Sensing/iNtuition-Perceving/Judging.

    Myers-Briggs website.

    I doubt the bias here is in the test makers' end. Decently designed Myers-Briggs tests simply measure whether a person is abstract and theoretical, or concrete and detail-oriented.

    This is true too. Overall, the Intuitive mode of operation is just extremely at odds with the Judger mentality. It's hard for Js to stop being tightasses long enough.

    I would agree... I think the MBTI-makers do have pre-conceptions about what the relative proportion of E vs I, N vs S, F vs T, and J vs P should be... but they "tune" new versions independently on each axis.

    One could argue that the SJ and NP correlation represent a failure to correctly partition those concepts (perhaps they should be modified to better match the Big 5?) but I don't think it's necessarily a flaw in the tests, per se.
