    Where have you seen that?

    The most common statistic I've seen has them at 3.3% or so, and that number being fairly typical for the NTs...?

    If a deaf INFP falls in the forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?

    I'd still be reluctant to conclude that INTPs are the most common NT, though, particularly with ENTPs listed at 3.2% (in the '98 statistics).

    Get over yourselves, INTPs, you are far from being as rare as you claim.

    intuitives are on the rise. I have a weird feeling that all those "witch hunts" were actually "intuitive hunts" by some pretty crazy sensors hating on open minded individuals. "hey that girl knows complex math, she's a witch! kill her!"

    Just my spin on history and it's relation to the current statistics.

    Or maybe sensors just like to fuck and make babies a lot.

    Or maybe a bit of both,

    I did some real research on this and INTP's were 1% twice in a row. It may be the other INTP is a different gender or you simily don't know people well enough.

    I think 1% is a good figure. There are a lot of people in this country, in this city, and id say i meet probably less than one seemingly intp persona for every 100 people. The internet just makes us seem less rare because we all congregate here in our loneliness.

    I think we're more rare than we like to think.

    My university campus has a total of around 3000 people. I'd say there's more of a dozen of us here.

    Of course, what's the odds of spotting them? INTP students rarely come out of their room.
