    Default How rare are NT girls? Does society comdemn this personality type in females?

    Most girls I seem to meet are SF's, as well as E's. The party scene is literally littered with them. Not that there aren't a lot of cool ESF's, but I sure wouldn't mind more INT's or NT's in general running around.

    Do any of you think society rewards female ESF behavior over that of the INT? I am also wondering how rare they are in reality, I haven't found any stats on the issue.

    NT

    INTJ – Female: 0.8% ; Male: 3.3%

    INTP – Female: 1.8% ; Male: 4.8%

    ENTP – Female: 2.4% ; Male: 4.0%

    ENTJ – Female: 0.9% ; Male: 2.7%

    Source: Myers Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) Personality Traits


    Never trust one source though however (this one happens to be old, from 1998), different sites tend to vary in their statistics. However, there is a general trend in most of them that there are significantly less NT females than NT males. It has to do with the differences in male and female brain structures/wirings.

    Official MBTI statistics are F'd. That's just my intuition speaking, but I trust it with my life every chance I get.

    We are pretty rare. And if you met me in real life, just by chance, you might not realize I was NT, since I tend to chameleon a lot.

    Life as an NT woman can generally be summed up like this:



    People want you to be softer, less opinionated, less sarcastic, more supportive and maternal. They want you to care about concepts less and social activities more. They want you to spend your whole life dreaming of marriage and children, and pity you if you don't.

    these are some interesting stats. there are supposedly more J's than P in society (slightly), didn't know that. S vs N was kinda obvious, but these stats back it up quite well. they give a 1:2 ratio between N's and S's. that's significant. the F vs T divide in sexes is obvious too. i thought this may be a mainly S thing given the social norms in our society, but the same divide is amongst the N's. how interesting.

    the one useful conclusion i've come to is that i'l jump the next N female i meet

    People taking the official MBTI are often doing so for other reasons than self-assessment, such as trying to impress an employer. Why on Earth do you think people test ISTJ more than ESFP?

    That's funny that ENTP is supposed to be the most common form of female NT, because I've known females of the other NT types, but I'm not sure if I've ever known an ENTP female.

    I have never known any in person.

    (Then again, I don't think I've met any other INTP or ENTJ women in person either... just a few INTJs.)

    Then again, look at how much "more common" it is.
    Not really that much more at all.

    Society looks well on NF girls, but looks at NF guys as sissies or not macho enough. They seem to think that, well, Talluha said it best

    NT men seem to do fine.

    SJs and SPs don't seem to have this problem.

    It depends on how they do the assess. If it's purely self-scoring, then yes, there's going to be bias (conscious or unconscious) in a situation where you have an idea of what the employer expects and what could happen to you if you do not conform to that. It does no good for people to risk their jobs (potentially) just to "be honest on a personality test."
