    Default Worth vs. Intelligence

    Of course worth is a relative term, but for the purposes of this discussion let us take worth to mean one's worth to society with regard to the betterment of life quality for all members of said society (technological, logistical, etc.) So a janitor would be worth something because s/he betters our living environment; an inventor would be worth something because s/he can come up with things to make our lives easier; a farmer would be worth something because he provides food to the masses.

    My question is this:
    Imagine if the worth of each of the 16 types were represented in 16 graphs as functions of their raw intelligence (we're not considering any other factor here). What would the graphs for each of the types look like? Which type's level of worth is affected most by his/her level of intelligence.

    Ex. - I'd imagine that an INTP of below average intelligence would be worth much less than an ISTJ of similar intelligence. The INTP graph might start out pretty low, but once a certain level of intelligence were reached the INTP would become quite a bit more useful to society.

    So, are you jealous of a particular ISTJ?

    NTs, if you're speaking of traditional IQ.

    Not in the least. I simply see more of a need for stupid people who are willing to commit, work hard, follow rules, etc., and less of a need for stupid people who think all day about philosophy, mathematics, physics, etc.

    In general, I would say the worth of SJs is affected least, NTs most. As for the extremes, I'd venture to guess that the worth of the INTP might very well be affected most, and perhaps the ISTJ least?
