    According to this poll, there are more INTPs here than INTJs.
    Where did you get your information,
    Did you search the entire membership?

    Pretty simple answer actually. Over time, and different e-mail groups, and stuff by Kiersey, people have developed an idea of the INTJ as some larger than life (clearly ficticious) idea of the INTJ type.
    Personally I suspect that the self-identifying INTJs include: an unbelievably of people who are actually one of the other types.

    I just finished searching the entire membership for at least all the self-reported types that are known. Some folks don't know their type, or only know partial, and I didn't mess with that, but here's the results:

    INTP - 236
    INTJ - 121
    INFP - 112
    INFJ - 107

    ENFP - 49
    ENTP - 33

    ISTP - 27
    ISTJ - 18

    ENTJ - 16
    ENFJ - 15

    ISFP - 13
    ISFJ - 8

    ESTJ - 6
    ESTP - 4
    ESFJ - 3
    ESFP - 3

    Maybe the INTJ's are just louder?

    Either that or the entire premise of the thread is wrong due to the INTP's present.

    Definitely the INxx types make up the great majority of the membership.

    As for "Is," which are the majority, its obvious why.

    As for "NTJ" after traveling and purusing other sites, this is by far the most interesting and "mature" (not meaning age.) I've found both meanness and silliness (not the fun kind) on other sites. Let's just say "qualities" I don't perceive most "NTJs" as being especially appreciative of.

    How does this differ from the ENTJ's uncomfortableness with chaos, and their striving to understand and control things?

    This kind of thing makes me think I could be an INTJ. I do, after all, frequently test as balanced on the E/I dichotomy.

    INTP 1% World Pop. 4% Web Users

    Things have undoubtedly changed since then, and I'm 100% confident the results wouldn't be valid in todays world... but it's interesting nonetheless.
    Definitely. Cheers for posting this; I've been looking for something like this for a while now.

    Interesting. I'd like to know how many INTJs started off as INTJ, and how many have always been INTJ. In fact, I'll create a poll now.

    Take into account that many of these might have their types wrong, and many probably don't post here anymore (I bet that about a quarter of the INTPs you've recorded are among the deserters).

    Ezra, this is an interesting question, and you have hit on part of the answer by saying that you would expect NFs to be interested in personality 'systems'. Systems are a distinctly NT preoccupation, and many NTs that I have worked with are delighted to find a system that rationalises the messy complexity of human behaviour. NFs are certainly interested in MBTI, but largely in so far as it supports their own and others' journey towards authenticity and self-knowledge. They are less interested in it as a 'system'. So discussions about MBTI as a system will be attractive to NTs, NTJs naturally have a stronger pull towards structured systems, and Is, as a previous constributor pointed out, are likely to be drawn to forums as a method of communication and exploration. ENFPs like me are more often found discussing MBTI with others or working hands on with individuals and groups.

    One big thing has been missed, is that INTJs like arrogance, haughtyness and talking down to their fellow types.

    And as such they enjoy clustering where they can form a tag team for this very purpose. Think of like world domination by INTJs but on a smaller scale.. a chat board in fact.
