    Or the Introversion might have something to do with it, i.e; it's cool to be out of the majority.

    "Would you like that list chronologically or alphabetically?"

    I think it widely depends of the culture, the social rank and the generation.
    Sure we're not a big part of the population, such as those f**** guardians lol
    but we're not so rare.
    I agree with them ENTP, there seems to be a real immature superiority complex in our type...

    You cant be serious, entps always tries to seem better than others, so they whine when some others really are better. They cant be taken serious.

    All jokes aside, I dont think that I feel superior to others, I just tolerate other peoples lack of intelligence. And disregard them more often when topics fall on things where they have a trackrecord of failure. But I do see some immature intps doing it ofcourse but that shows in all the types.

    Well, maybe it's the assumption about your own intelligence that's the issue in the first place. Some people confuse being more celebral than average with being the smartest cookie in the jar, and that's just not the right way to grow the fuck up.

    and yeah, entps are totally show offs and so on, but it's mostly just a game like everything else, and as such "we" (gross generalization) don't take it seriously.

    On the bright side ofc, I do adore alot of you guys, and i'm not the only one, so cheer up.

    I find myself melding my personality to fit with whoever I'm with and the situation I'm in. So I'm sure I could be unrecognizably INTP.....

    FORA.tv - Robin Dunbar: How Many Friends Does One Person Need?

    total population {high school, college} = {1500, 14,000}
    total known population = 150
    ** constant, assume everyone you know is a student at your school
    core group = 5, 100% chance of correct identification
    mid group = 10, 75%
    outer group = 135, 50%
    total INTP known = 1.5
    ** assume 1% are INTP
    1.5 [5/150(1) + 10/150(0.75) + 135/150(0.5)] = 0.8, correctly identified as INTP

    Science. It works, bitches.

What's with the INTP superiority complex anyway? Just go look at reddit; that website alone proves that there's a multitude of you guys to go around.

    Anyway, I've heard from one source that INTP is the rarest type for females, but most sources say INFJ is the rarest overall. And most sources say INTPs are about 2-3%. Get off your high horse. I'd expect to find 1 INTP out of a random 100 people for sure; it's a completely believable stat.

    location counts. from what I've been able to loosely glean and correlate the range 1-4% is valid where the highest region wise gets to 4 and worldwide drops to 1. College campuses do seem to have a higher percentage grouped more closely together.
    The answer must be in the attempt

    Thats only 15 INTPs in a fairly large amount of people + introversion + day dreaming = pretty hard to find
