    Infidelity and types

    Which types do you think would be more likely to cheat on their spouse?

    I don't think it has anything to do with type.

    Cheating is a form of dishonesty, which is a character flaw. Not a personality trait.

    ^ this pretty much

    then you also have to define what you consider to be infidelity - strip clubs? prostitutes? phone sex? flirting with someone else? emotionally attaching to someone else rather than your SO? it is different things to different people

    _S_P personalities. I suspect ESFP highest on the list.

    If you google "Experiencers - SP" you might find out a little more.

    Because SP's are so unfaithful and untrue.
    They'll steal your wallet, steal your wife and take your car.
    (Rolls eyes)

    SP's can be just as faithful as anyone else in the 16 types.
    I, speaking as an SP have never cheated and there's a high chance that I never will.
    I believe in faithfulness and above all, truth and love.

    I don't believe infidelity to be linked with type.
    Human (dishonest) behavior has nothing to do with type.
    I think it's sad that people believe such things.

    Commitment issues can be linked to infidelity. Not every SP will have commitment issues. There are types that are more loyal than others and even the loyal types can be unfaithful.

    Not sure how much solid research went into this, but this link might be interesting for people who are interested in this topic.

    As @WildWinds wrote, infidelity is related to dishonesty. A more valid and interesting question, therefore, would be why different personality types cheat. The reason an ESFP would put forward would most likely look very different from the rationalizations of a cheating INTP, for example.

    Don't mix up immaturity and general bad behavior with type. Type isn't supposed to shed light on that. That is up to the individual. Every single type is just as likely as the next to cheat. Simply because SPs and ESFPs are seen as those who want to have many "experiences", that does not mean they are more likely to cheat.

    Why people choose to cheat is subjective and different for every individual and still should not be related to type. "Have you ever cheated?" "Why have you cheated?" are better questions in the overall realm of this topic. As the way you worded it still has something to do with type and I don't think the two are related.
