They constantly refer to other people as 'normal', yet I have no reason to believe they are anymore paranormal than the next person.
    I don't pretend my taste in music is interesting. I listen to what I like and don't care who creates it. I'm not loyal to any artist, I don't care about lyrics, and I don't try to appreciate music that's not mainstream just so I can say I'm sophisticated. Probably an atypical INFJ in that way. Although I do like variety and intellectual stimulation.

    I like the idea of being special and unique, but not to the point where I try to be. I simply appreciate the ways in which I happen to be. There are a lot of ways in which I try to be more normal. Sometimes people who act like they're really weird and that's some awesome thing and they don't even try to fit in annoy the hell out of me.

    er.. all types are unique by definition.

    I don't get the question to be honest.

    I'm not usually one to throw these kinds of things at people, but when I read the question, I really had a hard time thinking about what it even meant.

    You hem me in -- behind and before;
    you have laid your hand upon me.
    Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
    too lofty for me to attain.

    Well all types might be unique, but individuals in those types might express varying levels of variation from the larger population. It might be type related, it might not.

    More "normal"? I would consider that a matter of opinion

    There are a lot of different estimates for the type distribution. Personally I can't believe 1 out of 2 people are SJ's. 40% maybe I could believe. And it's unlikely in my opinion that 75% of the population are S's. Then again the places I hang out in generally contain more N's, and I probably attract more of them to myself.

    Yeah people probably fit into S and J categories because those two things would be valued in a modern society that values proof and organization over a more random and uncertain way of perceiving things. After all someone who comes to conclusions out of nowhere is generally seen as a crank.

    I doubt a lot of people have very well differentiated Si. Although such a thing is very difficult to grasp for me (because I see it more than what it actually is?). It might be more common than what I think it is, but the amount of people who I can say are Si doms are practically Nil. Then again I think Pi doms as a whole are pretty hard to find, or their perception is so odd/incomprehensible to even themselves that someone who isn't them does not have a chance to understand it at all.

    Yeah, I agree, I have a hard time with it being that high as well. But, then again, basically all of my friends are Ns... So, my perspective may be a bit off.

    In regards to the OP, I definitely don't feel normal!

    I think I'm quite unique. My personality, my interests, etc. Perhaps downright strange sometimes.

    I'm more fond of the word, "simple". Not as a bad trait, but a positive one. I don't have grandiose or lofty desires. I don't need a great deal in this life to make me happy. I'm a person with simple needs and simple goals.

    I think a lot of SJs would identify with that feeling.
