    How the hell did the guys in the bloodhound gang come up with the lyrics to bad touch? People only remember the damn chorus but that song is pretty freaking sophisticate in the rhymes.

    Also what's with the video was America actually at war with France at that time?

    I am actually kinda surprised at the ESTP stats, I would have thought that there would be less of those, and a lot more ISTPs, but they're actually pretty equal.
    And 5% for ISFP? Nice! There's more of those than ENTJs.

    True. I don't think I would mind programming. But it really feels like an introvert's job, to me. Very isolating. But I guess extroverts know how to make do with those situations, and find the social time they can.

    Edit: It looks like I know a disproportionate number of INFJ programmers, btw.

    There is in absolue terms, but not in terms of MBTI vs general ratio.



    The main division seems to be one of T vs F.

    Yeah, my ESTJ Dad usually has the consistency and patience of a saint. Sometimes I think he is an ISTJ because of his more introverted nature, but he is a Te Machine. I could be a programmer, but I would need a lot of coffee to help me concentrate. Yeah, I just find social time between assignments (even between classes in my course) and make do with that. I would much rather be the one in charge of the general area, because monotonous jobs put me astray, and I'm much better at being in charge, and organizing people/jobs than being told what to do anyway.

    Nice. I thought the INFJs were the ones who dreamed up the code in their sleep kidding.

    Wow. I don't know any INFJ programmers. There is another INFP programmer here at work, though.

    @Sultan of Beans, where did that chart come from? I'm curious about the programmer population used, because it seems more heavily-weighted toward Extraverts than has been my experience.

    Never mind, find the original here. The sample population is:

They are all productive and motivated software engineers, and were selected to participate in this study based on their occupation, and were administered the MBTI (Form G) to determine their personality types. This study is relevant because it considers both professionals in a job setting and students in upper level university classes, as well as graduate students. Some students are already working as software engineers. This supports a greater generality of the results reported here.
    I wish the study broke down the population more, and described what kind of programming jobs/environments were involved (and the relative proportions).

    The discussion section of the study paints with a broad brush in the discussions section, tending towards the stereotypical. Still, interesting to read.
