1. ## Salary and Type

I was looking at some statistics here about mbti types and salary:
Type Statistics

Household Income
ENTJ - \$84,434
ESTJ - \$76,238
ESFJ - \$74,882
INTJ - \$72,043
ENFJ - \$71,060
ISTJ - \$71,020
ESTP - \$69,323
ISTP - \$67,349
ENFP - \$66,210
INTP - \$64,872
INFJ - \$64,372
ISFP - \$64,166
ISFJ - \$63,870
ESFP - \$63,281
ENTP - \$62,960
INFP - \$61,565

Apparently T's outperform F's given all the other letters are same and J's outperform p's.

Only in ENTP and ESFP case the I's perform better than the E's.

Amazing how ENTJ are so above everybody else. lol(Yes, I know self aggrandizing)

But yea what is surprising is the ENTP. How you explain that?

2. Education Level (1 did not graduate, to 6 PhD or equivalent)
ENTJ - 4.12
INTJ - 3.93
ESTJ - 3.83
ISTJ - 3.78
ESTP - 3.73
INFJ - 3.72
ENFP - 3.69
INTP - 3.69
INFP - 3.67
ESFP - 3.63
ENFJ - 3.60
ESFJ - 3.62
ISTP - 3.59
ISFJ - 3.58
ENTP - 3.54
ISFP - 3.52
ENTJ owns at life

Household Income
ENTJ - \$84,434
ESTJ - \$76,238
ESFJ - \$74,882
INTJ - \$72,043
ENFJ - \$71,060
ISTJ - \$71,020
ESTP - \$69,323
ISTP - \$67,349
ENFP - \$66,210
INTP - \$64,872
INFJ - \$64,372
ISFP - \$64,166
ISFJ - \$63,870
ESFP - \$63,281
ENTP - \$62,960
INFP - \$61,565
once again, empiracle proof that the ENTJ owns at life.

after looking at these two charts ^

if you are unsure of being ENTJ or ENTJ: how succesful are you?
if you are unsure of being ENFP or ENTP: how succesful are you?

interestingly enough, its the Te ones that win...not necissarily the F or T.

Married
INTJ - 44%
ISTP - 43%
ENFJ - 40%
the INTJ and ISTP are more frequently married than the ENFJ?

Males Females
Type 9 - 746 Type 9 - 2294
Type 4 - 678 Type 4 - 1806
Type 5 - 615 Type 2 - 1773
Type 7 - 468 Type 7 - 1461
Type 1 - 424 Type 5 - 1175
Type 2 - 413 Type 6 - 1102
Type 8 - 356 Type 1 - 1024
Type 6 - 308 Type 8 - 853
Type 3 - 298 Type 3 - 682
PROOF, that people are on average, lazy.

3. I wouldn't depend on those stats.... they don't even begin to reflect the overall averages;

Household income in the United States - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

4. I suppose the low INFP figure is lowest because they so often do charity or underpaid work for a "good cause"

As far as explaining the ENTP thing my hunch would be that this is based on reported income and that entps probably excel at hiding it. My understanding is that many are self employed also and as those of us who are self employed know there are many ways to hide/ write off a dollar.

6. 67 percent of all statistics are made up. 46 percent of people know that!

7. I'm wondering how they arrived these numbers...
That's a whole lot of money... Who are these people? It's terribly expensive where I live, yet, I know no one who makes that much (no, not even couples).

8. Where do you live, I thought the figures were to low.

I know people who make as twice as much, not even to mention family income.

I am thinking we have some ENTJ out there that aren't making any money

Well no it wouldn't because its like only 30% of the people have internet access.

So basically, it would be people with higher degree of education and disposable income.

As indicated by the level of education being a 3 or above for most groups.

The result are only to be used to spot trends not to pin point any specific figures.

Like ENTP might be hiding dough.

10. The salary you earn is more about WHO you are than WHAT you are.

Types got nothing little influence on it, in my opinion. :P
