    ISTPs are pretty uncommon as well - only 5.3% or so.

    So, does this strike you as a surprise? Do you feel like xSTPs are uncommon. LIKE BEING SPECIAL*??



    * = SPECIAL. Not "...."special"..."
    how is that uncommon if there are 16 types (and therefore on average each should be about 6%?). it's just not statistically significant, really....

    I feel like I meet more ENFP's/ESFJ's in service industry than anything. At least I work with a ton of them.

    I have to agree with the premise above, as I have seen a fair deal of variation of "MBTI type distribution percentages across "X" Large Population"

    If the entire human race were correctly evaluated and "MBTI-typed" then you might come up with a viable proportion for each MBTI type.

    But, of course, if you type every nation independently there is bound to be some variance for a multitude of reasons.

    I don't know what the actual % of the U.S. population is type ESTP, but I have not met many in my life over the past 3 years or so that I've paid attention to MBTI/personality theory in general.

    BIG 5 -> Extroversion 77% ; Accommodation 60% ; Orderliness 62% ; Emotional Stability 64% ; Open Mindedness 74%

    I know quite a bit of ESTPs they are one of the most obvious types along with ESTJS. It's hard to tell the difference between ESFPs and ESTPS sometimes they act quite similar.

    if socionics has anything to say about myers briggs, its that a good portion of those estp's are probably mistyped as introverts.
