    Maybe SFJs are more likely to have multiple kids, also given they're supposed to be the nuturing type anyway they're probably more likely to want big families/lot's of kids.

    T women probably don't have so many kids for logical reasons (finances etc.).

    NF women probably don't have so many kids for idealogical reasons (save the planet etc.).

    Exactly. Becoming a mom can MAKE you have those tendencies. 80+% of all women have children. And for that matter having a steady corporate job will make you have SJ tendencies too. I think it would be more accurate to observe and type people outside of and/or before they were immersed into those circumstances.

    I bet an NT came up with those statistics.

    Seriously, sorry PB... thank you for looking those up I could believe that there is a majority of SJs. But this seems disproportionate. I mean, the number of SJs is just so much vaster than any of the others.

    I think there are a lot of people who look more like a type they're not because they need to or want to fit in, one way or another, or conform to societal expectations. My mom doesn't give a damn about societal expectations, which is one way I know she's not an SJ...

    T women might think ahead more about the financial realities of raising lots of kids, whereas an ESFJ might be more focused on how having kids make her feel at the time.

    I just don't buy the "only SFJ women want kids and there are so many of them" thing.

    I'm an INFJ (about 99% sure of that.) If anything else I'm most likely to be ISFJ. I am definitely a Feeler - I've never once tested as a Thinker in the last six years. And I have no desire for kids. I mean, really none. I'd love to get married to the right guy, but I've never wanted kids. It has nothing to do with wanting to save the planet or thinking I can't afford them. I'm just not interested enough in children to take the risk of bringing them up in a scary world and maybe not even getting along well enough with them.

    Maybe MBTI really does just help to perpetuate stereotypes and not much else.

    Maybe ESFJs are less likely to see the world as scary? as Fe doms I'd guess it's the inner world that scares them the most. They're usually confident in their ability to build relationships and might not even be thinking ahead that far anyway.

    Sensor + Fe = focussed on concrete people, and it doesn't get more concrete than changing nappies and cleaning up baby sick.

    That is the whole point though - think about the world we live in. Is it not an SJ world in many ways? Planning? Structure? Routines? Orderliness? Meetings? Does not this reality reflect in our lives?

    Here's a link with a bunch of stats:

    other things become bad."
