    Originally I thought INFJ for Japan as well, but after discussing it with someone who knows a lot more about MBTI than I do, I think Japanese national character would be ISFJ (service and duty oriented, deferent, traditional, conventional).
    Yes I was just going to go back and take that one back. ISFJ suits that much better. It is human nature to be more S oriented. I doubt we will find any nation that will pick an N character to represent itself. ISFJ is a good a pick.

    ISTJ may even be a better idea. Japan seems to be on the borderline of Thinking/Feeling possibly even with a slight preference to thinking. Thoug many other oriental nations could be ISFJ.

    I think the argument was T rather than F because of how prisoners were treated. I don't think that's a reliable measure nor particularly fair considering that it would leave us typing the German's on when Nazi's ruled and that'd be crazy.
    Isn't it time for a colourful metaphor?

    I figured I shouly try and look into the national character typology

    U.S-ESTJ
    Japan-ISFJ
    Germany-INFJ
    England-ESTP
    Canada-ESFP
    Russia-ESFJ

    I must confess that I had to take some wild iNtuitive leaps here as the info that I am dealing with is very vague and I am not exactly sure what national character is and let alone how it could relate to typology.

    ISTJ. Traditionalists. Stiff upper lip. NO displays of emotion which are overt and by definition extroverted.

    Hence the counter culture with binge drinking at the moment. I think it's knee jerk but I could be wrong.

    Definately ISTJ though. It's a country which marvels at those who are able to recall "facts". There's no real encouragement to understand anything, just to listen and absorb.

    So they differ from the US culture in a way that they favor listening over presenting?


    Since they are ISTJ, they must value power and prestige much less and be more leisurely, yet at the same time meticulous planners, though not quite as bad as their extroverted counterpart?
