    Default Will A Paradigm Shift Effect MBTI %?

    I have always been suspect as to the breakdown of percentages in type. I have no reason to believe that at best there is a 6.25% across the board. Furthermore, there is no empirical evidence to support Myers-Briggs or Keirsey

    There is no percentages. Though I do believe that function order is valid, the higher up the function the more firmly its roots are seated in the unconscious mind. The multiple choice MBTI test cant make that assessment, you have to do a thorough study of temperament to see which of your attributes are salient.

    Here is how the break down should be provided that the test would reflect accurate insights.

    ISTP

    Thinking 80% Feeling 20%
    Introversion 70% Extroversion 30%
    Sensing 60% Intuition 40%
    Perceiving 55% Judging 45%



    There is no empirical evidence for typology because it is rooted in the unconscious mind.

    I am referring to percentages based on population of type, not an individuals type functions.

    Did you see ptGatsby's reference a month ago or so? He linked to one of the statistical online charts that broke things down for m/f/combined for all types and seemed to show a more reasonable balance than the seemingly erroneous ones based on the

    - E75/I25
    - S75/N25
    - T50/F50
    - J50/P50

    split. I'll post it here if I happen to find it first.

    Whats wrong with the primary... auxiliary... tertiary... function labels that Jung assigned in the first place?

    Online tests are skewed based on a number of factors, foremost is the fact that primarily Introverted iNtuitive types are online and likely to be interested in their type, while Extroverted Sensor types are far less likely to be online, and less interested. Therefore, online, as far as I've seen, my type, which is very rare in my country, is very common online. ISTJs are also reasonably common, but you seldom see them doing much writing or otherwise contributing, because they tend to maintain things behind the scenes.

    However, I've wondered whether a change in needs and attitudes in the society might change the numbers of each type. You don't need 25 doctors, 30 engineers, and 35 scientists per 100 population. Right now, our economy in the US is highly biased toward ESXX types, particularly ESXJ, and it always has been SJ-oriented, but the E is new, and reflects our new interest in "people skills" and our "services economy", which means there is a distinct preference for Extroverts.

    Will that mean we have more in the future? Who knows.

    Thanks Fortunato. I will try to find it. I agree with all of the correlations referenced above, however wonder whether the S/N is can be skewed by cultural biases at the moment, creating a 50/50 split as well.

    We're on the same page Wolf. Yet with the age of the computer, high oil prices, downsizing, continued manufacturing jobs being outsourced, etc., I think it will change the dynamics of work, making telecommuting the norm, thus skewing the E/I and S/N, at least from a superficial viewpoint. Just a thought.
