    Default Life After (Or In Lieu Of) MBTI (Sensing Types Move On After Determing Type)...

    ...... But Intuitive types stay around although as introverts you seem to have no problem in idle chat. I just looked at the sub-forum counts as of this post:

    NF-22843
    NT-29639
    SP-3050
    SJ-2843

    Need I say more?

    Yeah, I guess it's probably because the N types are more into long-term analysis of people whereas we S types are more into actually doing stuff. So, an SJ might not spend much time posting here because they feel bound to more traditional obligations, and an SP would likely just get bored with the activity and move onto doing something else. I've been here almost a month now, which one particular member told me makes me one of the longest running SFPs ever.

    well, it's also necessary to note the total volume of NF/NTs who came here in the FIRST place, vs S types, if you're just going to look at "quantity of posts," correct?

    So yeah, ya need to say more.

    I don't understand why this is supposed to be so earth shattering a revelation. MBTI is a theory, therefore people who like to discuss theory will tend to find it more interesting than those who don't. People who like to discuss theory will check the box on "I like to discuss theory" thus more likely to come out N type.

    Yet the majority of post are not related to theory but mere chatting of other subjects and personal discussions.

    That is something that I considered Jennifer, but like in real life when I have nothing to contribute I usually don't partake in discussions. In fact I usually go get into something else and remove myself from the group. I guess it's the same here. You can only discuss theory for so long and maybe I should train myself to be a little more open to idle chat.

    I'm not certain this says anything about MBTI as much as people simply being attracted to like personalities. As you point out many of the topics have nothing to do with MBTI. I looked at forum demographics a while back and saw that INxx types dominate the forum (over 50%), while both ISxx types and ENxx types have a signigicant showing (about 20-25% each) and ESxx types are almost non-existant (less than 5%).

    This forum attracts both intuitives and introverts. That is not necessarily a bad thing, it's simply the target demographic that the forum is aimed at (whether intentionally or not).

    Yes, I was about to wonder about the number of extraverts vs the number of sensors. We seem to be about even.

    But LL got there first.
    ANFP:
    Extraversion (52%) ---- Introversion (48%)
    Sensing (26%) ---- iNtuition (74%)
    Thinking (16%) ---- Feeling (84%)
    Judging (5%) ---- Perceiving (95%)

    No it's not a bad thing and I was actully looking for demographics because this comes into play significantly. Yet proportionately I think that intuitives post more than sensors, regardless of E/I.
