    This is a great post, thank you for sharing.

    I don't understand the two statements before the last on INFPs.

    # Underrepresented among men with chronic pain.

    # Showed the highest level of depression of the 16 types with chronic pain.

    Does this mean INFP males don't have much chronic pain but they are the most depressed when they have it?

    Interesting. I agree with the parts about work:

    # Among 3 highest types favoring work environments with "Independence & achievement," and include among top 3 desirable characteristics "Variety of tasks" and "Clear structure."
    I like independence, and variety is good as long as I don't have to muck around in other people's messes...

    Yes, I agree with this completely. I am always seeking to improve myself or alter my state of consciousness in order to cope.

    Does this mean INFP males don't have much chronic pain but they are the most depressed when they have it?
    I think so, yeah.

    If you agree with me that chronic pain often starts from psychological trouble (stress and so on), INFPs are apparently more sensitive to stress and avoid those situation, so as a group they have less chronic pain. But the ones who just find it impossible to escape, they have the most severe psychological problems as the time goes by...

    lol. Soo true..

    # In national sample, lowest of all types in liking work environments where "Everything is done by the book"; 1 of 3 highest types in liking "Independence & achievement," "Teamwork," and "People from different backgrounds."
    I cut some slack, and question authority a lot. Teamwork, group consensus makes me jovial. Especially when I can learn from people who speak different languages to expand on my international vocab (usually bad words, hello's, sentimental expressions).

    Thanks! I love the analysis. Parts of it was a tough bullet to bite.

    I think the last three of ours highlight where the bulletproof myth comes from.

    # With ESTJs, had highest total coping resources of all the types.

    # Ranked 1st of all 16 types in using social and emotional coping resources and 2nd in using cognitive resources.

    # In national sample, ranked lowest in coping with stress by "Developing physical symptoms."

    That makes total sense. I get stressed out all the time and I definitely don't deal very well.

    # In national sample, ranked highest in being dissatisfied with "Marriage/intimate relationship"
    I can see this happening too because of problems with communication, and feeling misunderstood, etc.
