Since we're really at loss for a discussion now I might as well put this out. Which type do you believe is the most popular to be on this forum? There's been a lot of mention that in the real world, ESTJ is the ideal type for males but what type do you think is the most socially acceptable type to be here? From what I've heard it seems to be an INTx of some kind while Sensor-esque behavior tends to be discouraged.
No, because the norms that we naturally abide by have everything to do with type. According to U.S. social norms, males are expected to behave less emotionally then females, thus Thinking is the socially desirable preference. Likewise, introverts are typically villainized as being cold, selfish, and untrustworthy, thus extroversion is the desirable preference. Due to these social norms, ESTJ is the socially preferrable type to be in the United States. It is the popular type to be.
yes- but this thread is for norms of MBTI Central- not of society sorry!
I'm stating that ESTJ is the most popular type to be according to society's social norms and from this I'm asking what the most popular type to be is according to MBTI Central's social norms. It's a comparison.

Geez... coulda knocked me over with a feather reading that! Is that really the way we're seen? Scarey. Edit: Now that I think about it... yeh, that's been my experience... just never saw it in those words and all together like that.
