    Answer:

    because INTJs/INTPs (gasp!) aren't actually so rare?

    Funny how some people can score off the charts on "questioning" but they never question this idea of type rarity.

    Fun fact: INTx types only appear rare because they spend most of their time shut in and never actually see each other.

    Same here.

    But my grandfathers were both almost certainly INTX (INTJ and INTP), and both rather successful in their own ways (including financially). Their children did not fare as well, though - one in five were relatively-successful, one-in-ten was some kind of NT. There was no pattern or association there, though (the INTJ had an INTP son).

    Interestingly, quite a few of their grandchildren are NTs and NFs.

    1/16th < 10% = not rare questioning.

    Heh. I'd never had a problem with getting laid. Men wanting to sleep with me was easy to attain. (Having boobs probably helped with that.)

    Men being able to put up with me for more than six months? Now *that* was a bit harder to find. :-)

    All females have that covered if they're acceptable looking. All they have to do is stand in a public place and wait.
