Here's a really good link: Type Statistics

Type Statistics

General MB Population

According to a 1964 American study conducted by David Keirsey and Marilyn Bates, the population is...

Extraversion 75%, Introversion 25%
Sensing 75%, iNtuition 25%
Thinking 50%, Feeling 50%
Judging 50%, Perceiving 50%

It should also be noted that for men, about 60% had a Thinking preference, while 60% of women had a Feeling preference.

Keirsey Sorter Results - here

It should be noted that most people interested in personality type tend to be NFs, while the least common are SPs. Thus, this is pretty much a survey of people who are interested in type, hence the discrepency between the general population statistics. Also, I have rounded out the decimals into whole numbers.

Total Tests Taken = 4,586,300

SJ Guardian - 43%
NF Idealist - 30%
NT Rational - 14%
SP Artisan - 12%

Test Results from PersonalityPage.com - here

This site is not as popular as Keirsey's and also you have to pay for the test, so this is probably more accurate of those interested in personality type. Note that INFPs who make up 1% of the general population make up 13% of the people here. (We're just fascinated by this stuff, really.)

That graph is too funny. It would be useful if it was normalized first. Right now all it reflects is that more women took the test than men.

The ENTJ is the richest type, by far. ESTJ is second richest. How about that, huh? I find that interesting.

Those are the two that I would guess. What do you think?

I think it's because they have the executive personality that eventually leads to CEO types, meaning more money.

ENTP gets gypped man! just about the least educated, least common and least profitable, we didn't even win anything here ffs! I'm going to get a super dooper education and earn 100,000 bucks a year, and be more common than any other type, just to go against the flow and stick it to the man! :mad:

I noticed tjat ExxJs are more attrated to leadership post, so they earn more. Thinker earns more than feelers, because they are regarded as more rational
