    I agree that this points at the US being an S over an N

    Anyone remember the post about black NTs in the states? Or maybe it was black culture(it was in the NT forum...I thought)...(Vague, yes) Something came up about it being a very SJ culture, part of this being the religious nature and the following of social norms. I think the S stands, for now, but the N looks to be on its way in in America.

    Edit: ^^^This may have been on INTPc

    But they don’t possess a great deal of political or corporate power in this country. That’s the thing. Since political management positions are populated by xxTJs, most countries are going to emote the characteristics of 1 of the 4. ISTJ for Germany, ESTJ for England, and ISTJ for Japan, for instance.
    Surgeons replace one of your neurons with a microchip that duplicates its input-output functions. You feel and behave exactly as before. Then they replace a second one, and a third one, and so on, until more and more of your brain becomes silicon. Since each microchip does exactly what the neuron did, your behavior and memory never change. Do you even notice the difference? Does it feel like dying? Is some other conscious entity moving in with you?

    1776-1790s = INTJ (Stong libertarian ideals, individualism, and desire to build something new that works)
    1860s = ESTP (north) vs. ENTJ (south)
    1920s = ENTP (roaring twenties, a time of great inovation and experiementation)
    1930s = INFP (great depression, a time of great sadness and idealization about the future)
    1940s = ISTJ (isolationist country stirred into a war machine)
    1950s = ESTJ (ruled by strong, conservative forces)
    1960s = ENFP (Love and peace baby)
    1970s = ENFJ (women's movement and recession)
    1980s = INTP (apathetic nation with focus on education)
    1990s = ENTP (roaring 90's and the Clinton fiasco)
    pre 9-11 GWB years = ESFJ
    post 9-11 = ESTJ
    Interesting, since Jefferson was definitely an INFJ. I wonder who balanced out his F aspect to make American culture INTJ back then.

    Not sure about Japan being NF. It seems more ISFJ/ISTJ to me. Agree with NF for a lot of Europe though.

    Any thoughts on Australia? ESTP?

    Antarctica = INFP
