    Default NT Population Questionnaire

    1. How old are you? (To identify how long you've had to meet people)

    I'm in my early-mid 20's

    2. How many people have you identified as NT irl?

    Ive only known between 5 to 8 definite NTs. Was friends with a few, while the others were acquaintances/professor/co-workers. Then there's a few people I suspect were NT's, but never talked to them enough to make an accurate assessment and say they were definitely NT.

    3. Some 'experts' estimate NTs are roughly 5-10% of the population. Would you say this is an accurate number?

    IMO it's far less than that. That would mean out of 100 people, 5-10 would be NT. Perhaps I hang out in the wrong places, but I think I wouldve met more than 5-8 in my entire life if their were that many of em.

    1. 21

    2. Probably like 30 since I started with MBTI

    3. I could see 5-10 %... it depends on your environment. I'm in one where all the NTs congregate. Also, my people are very good at surrounding themselves with other extraverted thinkers, which usually translates into INTJs. Lots and LOTS of INTJs.

    1. How old are you? (To identify how long you've had to meet people)

    41

    2. How many people have you identified as NT irl?

    Sorry, that's too long a period to recall/count everyone.
    ...but not that many. "Rare" is a good way to sum it up.

    I did meet them either in college or at work.


    3. Some 'experts' estimate NTs are roughly 5-10% of the population. Would you say this is an accurate number?

    I don't know. As others have said, it's environment-sensitive.

    For example, in my development department at work (software), out of 20 people, I can think of 3 right off.

    But at the church I used to attend (300-400 people), I can only think of 1... maybe 2.

    1. How old are you?

    20.9

    2. How many people have you identified as NT irl?

    2-3. I'm sure I know many more NTs, but I have only definitively typed a couple.

    3. Some 'experts' estimate NTs are roughly 5-10% of the population. Would you say this is an accurate number?

    This seems about right when looking at the population as a whole, though in different contexts and places, this number seems to drastically change.

    1. 16

    2. I've actually met quite a few, actually. Of course I do go to a school with 800 people in my grade. But out of them I know about 5-6 maybe. It's very interesting when they occasionally get us all into a class together.

    3. In my case of study, no, it seems that I do not know 5% of the population as NT's, but many can be typically tricky to type. That 5-6 people that I know in my grade are all within a population of maybe 60-100 students who are taking the same classes as me, or have before, so it seems like its possibly correct.

    1. Almost 16
    2. 4 or 5 def NTs
    3. Far less. I only find that there are 3 in my school right now, that I know of. Maybe like, 1/2% or .25% (yes, I switched from fractions to decimals!)
    Excuse me, but does this smell like chloroform to you?

    1. How old are you? (To identify how long you've had to meet people)

    25. And I really hate it when I have to meet people.

    2. How many people have you identified as NT irl?

    Definitely one close friend so far plus probably two others (ENTJ, INTP, ENTP), but these are the only IRL persons I'm fairly certain about.

    3. Some 'experts' estimate NTs are roughly 5-10% of the population. Would you say this is an accurate number?

    Don't know. 5-10% is a wide margin. It can well imagine that it's possible, but then pure guessing doesn't amount to much anyway.

    25

    2. How many people have you identified as NT irl?

    Wow...that would be hard to estimate...I started MBTI recently...no idea..these are the ones that come to mind:
    INTJ - 2
    INTP - 2
    ENTJ - 1
    ENTP - 2?

    3. Some 'experts' estimate NTs are roughly 5-10% of the population. Would you say this is an accurate number?

    That sounds about right to me. We've got about 130 employees at work and I can easily pinpoint at least 5 NT's. My boss is ENTJ. She "GETS" me when I talk to her. It's pretty kewl.
