    Even INTJs are outsourced.

    Hmmm. The only factor i can see in regard to technology is with advances it can supply people with tools to be more on the introversion side. How ever , you can also reason that , this technology is providing you with tools to be Extraversion also. That being said , Maybe the Introversion factors are bigger than its Extraversion. So maybe more I than E , but the rest of traits , i dont know how to relate them with technology.

    INTP - The Thinkers

    Actually i would prefer INTJ become the one of rarest type.
    I found interesting statistic about MBTI population, ESxx are the major population because they needed to build the physical/ real world. What happen to this world if they are dont exist? On the other side INTJ are commonly found in system builder of technology, science, etc which no need really massive resource to be able to work.

    The majority of the lower and middle bands of the current civilized world don't run on merit. That is just simplistic stuff schools and parents sell to young people.

    It runs on social connections, economic means, being a desirable cog in another' system without rocking the boat too much, selling a feel good moral high ground to support whatever product or service you are flogging, and confidence in reputation rather than competence, which are not the same thing.

    Ergo wouldn't INTJs be almost extinct in this day and age?

    This isn't the age of reason. This is the age where reason is whored out, stripped of its innate dignity by society and demonized as inhuman and cruel. Speak truth and reason too openly and you will be demonized and shunned.

    For example...

    "You are just trying to make yourself look good by sounding intelligent and making others feel bad."

    As if most people could tell the difference between if this was the case or if it was not.

    No, but you have embraced suspicions and the ad hominem fallacy to attack others in the name of the sake of others after your bruised ego realized you aren't as intelligent as you believed you were as when intelligent conversation was scarcer.

    It really comes down to how much you are liked if the other party is unfamiliar with what you are saying. Less merit, more tact involved in getting ahead unless you run with a sharper crowd who can quickly understand what is being described and are in pursuit of the truth.

    How much merit do you need? Adequacy for the task rather than an exception amount for meeting contingency challenges head on, if you are likable person? How... comfortable in the sort term.
    Apple and Facebook are technological innovations in how they offer people a new method of connecting, besides riding on a social phenomenon.

    You mention very interesting points about "tact" being more important than "merit." The idea proposed in this thread comes from personal experiences observing people in the general population, where I find a larger variation in the appearances or demeanor of people with the INTJ personality type. This is to discuss how INTJ are much more common than many people realize, and a reflection of this comes from the rapid advancements in science and technology. This is not meant to appeal to everyone, so if only ten or fifteen percent of readers can ponder on this proposal, then the purpose of questioning the present dogma has been achieved.

    It is an interesting way to view it if that is indeed your underlying viewpoint/question. However, even if we were to assume it was completely correct and not consider the other factors involved, I don't believe that people who influence the innovations in these fields are the majority in population. I'd say people-oriented fields are in the majority, thus types well-represented in those fields are by default the most common.
    You have summarized my idea very well. It does not take many pioneers to start something new, though it requires more people, who share the same passion, to keep an idea going and bring it into fruition.

It looks like you're assuming that technological advancement creates INTJs on, as @bethdeth said, a needs basis. Unless we're actually manufactured machines, that isn't how it works.

    Note: On second thought, that could be where this Made in USA engraving on my foot came from.
    Technology does not "create" more INTJ, though it is possible that the more INTJ there are, the faster society innovates.

    Unknown Personality

    I have seen statistics that say personality types as a percentage of the general population vary by nation.... The two questions we need answers to - and may never get them - are 1) What makes a person form a personality type? Genetics? Upbringing? Culture? 2) To what extent can we rely on tests in assessing personality type prevalence?

    I have read somewhere (don't have the citation), that Australia has more INTJs per capita.

    I think that was here on PerC, in one of the stickied threads. It is thereby only a postulation.
