    Default INTP is 1%??

    I totally disagree with INTP is about 1%. That means 1/100 is INTP. That's bullshi#. My high school was about 1500 and I have never met anyone like me! I go to college about 14,000 and I'm sure their are some INTP but I have not met anyone during two years i been here. So what are your beliefs on this?

    We are an elusive bunch. I am sure there are some floating around, i personally haven't met anyone like myself either, but you never know...

    I prefer statistics to beliefs.

    well they're often recluses. I agree though. I couldn't see that.

    Sucks for you.
    Between that cigarillo and sticking my finger down my throat to see if I could DT, I feel like puking RN.

    You haven't seen yourself from the outside. If you were to meet yourself on the street can you be certain that you would recognise yourself as an INTP.
    We are not a type to wear our personalities on our sleeves, rather we will commonly try to adapt to the situation at hand.

    Saying there were about 1500 people means nothing unless you knew all 1500 people, and well enough to type them at that. INTPs chameleon well, maybe you've met plenty but never knew it.

    1%? What's your source on that? Most data I've seen puts INTPs as the most common NT type, usually around 4% of the population. (and up to 7% of the male population)
    If a deaf INFP falls in the forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?

    Consider that these population values may change generationally, as well as be different in different cultures. The baby boomer generation certainly seemed SP-heavy, and their parents' generation perhaps were SJ-heavy. Who knows what the newest population demographics are?
