    I don't know what to make of that vague memory. It seemed like a legit stat.
    WOW that seems a lot... be itnerested to see if it's true... Victor always says MBTI hasn't travelled far enough into Ozziness to be big... YET!

    Personally I think INTJ's are born, my best friend (INTJ - a resonably social one).... had a wee boy, the MOST stoic child I ever met under 9 months old... he has warmed up a lot since but still terribly serious kid....

    His daddy is an ENFP, so likely to soften up the edges, but the wee one's type is really strong

    It is because in a tribe few thinkers could be maintained.

    i think we're rare because part of what we are is how we have a tendency to search and observe things that the majority of people that we're aware of wouldn't notice or understand

    you can't easily be part of the majority on a mental level if you spend all your time in places the majority isn't

    i think that it is entirely likely that some of us are born the way we are, some of us assimilate to the personalities around us that we like, and some of us rebel, and become one of the most uncommon personality types in our environment

    i guess it's a weird thing to analyze, but whatever the cause is, it likely has something to do with human nature, and the necessities of separate types in a community

    it is more important to ask yourself why you became the type you did, than to ask why everyone else became what they did

    Basically, SJs are like the bread and grains of the earth. They're bland, but you need a lot of them to make the diet work. But INTXs are like fats, oils, and sweets. Use sparingly. They can taste great, but too many of them and the rest of the system doesn't function, and forgets to take care of itself and shower regularly.

    NFs are the fruit group.

    Nah.

    Maybe they don't have too many one night stands but that's not the most efficient way to generate offspring and take care of them afterwards.

    I've met a number of them but actually do think INTJs are pretty rare. INTPs seem much more common.

    Why thank you. I'd much rather be different. Gives one a more unique value proposition to the world.

    Personal opinion is this stuff is inborn.

    Actually come to think of it, I wonder if introverts, especially Ts have fewer children than extraverts, because of their need for peace and quiet.

    If you're a T that woman fall on accidentally and get pregnant and have a lot of money to pay for all the kids you can have peace and silence too
