To be honest, the world couldn't handle too many of us.
i agree with this one. if you look at the 4 temperaments, the largest group are the SJ's, then SP's followed by the NF's and finally the NT's. in short you have the defender of the norms, the norm followers and then the creative people. it looks like evolution to me. you wouldn't expect the creative bunch to be the majority. we have a small amount of people who strive to be creative and a lot of other people to carry things out. humanity would probably be doomed if we only had N's. S's would at least survive. they may not do anything new, but they would do alright. i like the status quo as it is now.
I am INTP and my mom is INTJ. My brother is ENTJ and my best friend of 11 years is ENTP. My mom also suspects that my dad was an INTP, so these rarities don't really seem to apply to me. I've also consciously known one other INTJ and an INFJ, another type that is supposed to be rare.
EDIT: My cousin is INTJ, also, I forgot.
EDIT 2: My other brother took the test today and came out as INFJ, which is supposed to be the rarest so yeah I would say my family is comprised of rarities which to me doesn't seem entirely too rare.

Sorry yall, i'm mainly an ENTJ, but went thru an INTENSE INTJ phase and I hated it. But I was just wondering how culture would affect scores? Say like in big-math, communist China? Just curiousitizing... :-)
