I suppose I fit the stereotype a bit, being on the border with INTJ and having an avatar sort of associated with a kind of military.
Are there any actual statistics behind this, or is it just a couple of member names that stand out?
No I don't think this topic is so interesting as to merit going out and researching statistics. I just felt like an observation. on INTPc there's abweichend, here we have uberfurher, a Metamorphosis is famed for that avatar. Then there's Acid Goethe the ENTJ, so maybe I should have said XNTJ. There are probably others too. It's quite noticeable.
Also my brother is INXJ, and he loves anything Germanic.
Yes, but the language itself is Germanic. (German has a lot of Latin and Greek words, too.)
the language is partly germanic...for example the word "popular"...completely at random...is clearly of Latin origin....so is "senate"..."democracy" is Greek...whether or not there aree similair words in german, I don't know, but they are not "Germanic" by any conventional definition...I would say English is a mix of primarily Latin and then words from Anglo-Saxon which originate from Germany...and the we have the Norman words, which are a different thing altogether...most names of "meat" are derived from the Norman, eg Pork, Beef, Mutton....but the animals, pig, cow sheep, are Anglo-Saxon names (Germanic), due to the French overlords eating the food, while the anglo-Saxon peasants simply worked with the animals. "chicken", being the food of the poor, retained its Anglo-Saxon (Germanic) name.
So not all english names are Germanic. If I call myself Popular_Democrat_Senator, or Beef_Mutton_Porker, that would not be Germanic by any conventional definiton.
