    MBTI Prevalence on Personality Cafe

    A couple of years ago, @Grey provided information on the amount of people who had a certain MBTI and how much it had changed since a previous point in time. Unfortunately, since then the graph has been removed from use. In an effort to contiue where @Grey started, I decided to take the statistics provided and do a comparison between the late-2009 values and mid-2011 values.

    A reposting from that thread is below:

    The information provided in the first post was to one decimal place, so I have altered the following values to round to one decimal place as well. This is a comparison between the 2009 values presented in the first post and the 2011 values which we now have in the same scope. Overall sum of % (x-axis) equals 100 (N/A has been removed as per the methodology of the original post).

    The current amount is in light blue, the 2009 value is in the dark blue. This is for self-reported MBTI amount for those publicly displaying their self-reported MBTI types. UNK stands for unknown MBTI being self reported.

    As can be seen, INTP, INFJ, and especially ENFP have all seen drops since then. Unknown has significantly risen, and INTJ/ENTP have enjoyed mild rises. All other changes have been small, leaving the rest of the field at around the same. This may contrast 2009's conclusion where significant differences had not occurred, however we are dealing with a much larger difference in sample size between then and now.



    MBTI stats - 2011:

    Please note, values have been altered for REPORTED MTBI for the above table. N/A has been removed.

    Type - Title - Percentage - Population
    INFP - The Idealists - 19.8% - 4370
    UNK - The Unknowns - 18.1% - 3994
    INFJ - The Protectors - 11.2% - 2455
    INTP - The Thinkers - 10.0% - 2186
    INTJ - The Scientists - 9.8% - 2151
    ENFP - The Inspirers - 7.4% - 1628
    ENTP - The Visionaries - 4.9% - 1085
    ENFJ - The Givers - 3.0% - 663
    ISFP - The Artists - 2.7% - 600
    ISTJ - The Duty Fulfillers - 2.7% - 596
    ENTJ - The Executives - 2.6% - 564
    ISTP - The Mechanics - 2.5% - 547
    ISFJ - The Nurturers - 1.9% - 415
    ESTP - The Doers - 1.0% - 223
    ESFP - The Performers - 0.9% - 178
    ESTJ - The Guardians - 0.9% - 177
    ESFJ - The Caregivers - 0.8% - 163

    Total types (including unknown): 17 vs 17 in 2009
    Total percentage (following N/A removal/modification): 100% vs 99% in 2009 (likely due to rounding)
    Total responses: 23,598 vs 3,811 in 2009

    2009 Stats:

    For those who do have their MBTI type listed, the percentiles are as follows:
    INFPs - 20.1%
    INFJs - 12.0%
    INTPs - 11.2%
    ENFPs - 10.2%
    INTJs - 8.5%
    ENTPs - 4.1%
    ISFPs - 3.0%
    ENFJs - 2.8%
    ENTJs - 2.8%
    ISTJs - 2.7%
    ISTPs - 2.3%
    ISFJs - 1.7%
    ESTJs - 0.8%
    ESFPs - 0.8%
    ESTPs - 0.8%
    ESFJs - 0.7%
    Unknown Personality - 14.5%
    Thanks @TheWaffle and @Grey for finding or providing the materials for this!

    it always makes sense that the INxx's dominate and the ESxx's tend to stay outside.

    An interesting question: why is it that ENPs, particularly ENFPs, are much more active on here than ENJs?

    But how many of those people are actually correctly typed, and how many are pretending to be NT's?

    Hundreds and hundreds ;-)

    Step 1. Lurk the forums for Mts first
    Step 2. Observe who is more popular, who is not
    Step 3. Read the description, don't bother taking the test
    Step 4. O.k, take the test, get results you don't like based on what's negative
    Step 5. O.k, i like this one, click, i'm an NT ; ) :D

    So many people want to portray themselves as NT's because they believe the stereotypes that F's are less intelligent or more emotional when they simply don't understand what T and F even mean. Even I've wanted to be a NT because they usually get taken more seriously than an enfp.

    This was written on my wall not long ago from a very clever ENFP. Its spot on, and explains why. ENFP can see through all that, as i know you can, so it can be quite funny and amusing :D

    Yeah, I've wondered how many Ts are mistyped because we have a cultural/ideological view that "Thinking" is always better than "Feeling" and people are answering questions based on which choice they think is "objectively" better, and not which choice is what they are inclined to do naturally. I know I caught myself doing that at first and I don't even have (much of) an ideological attachment to reason. You're right, though, it's just kind of trollish and in a way kind of funny. I do worry that these people are hurting inside, but there's not much anybody can do for them if they remain so uncooperative.

    Because this is a procrastination zone. There shoud be a sister site; www.Jersonalitycafe.com, where Microsoft Outlook and their calendar will be synced with their PM inbox.

    INFJ - The Protectors

    This probably says more about how people commonly perceive types rather than which types are actually more common.

    Most INxx types here seem to be proud of how non-conformist they are, but the latter does not imply the former, in fact many are either anti-conformists or 'conforming to non-conformism'.

    It's a pretty common human trait to be conscious of how you're perceived by others, the INxx tag is sometimes used as a convenient 'I'm intellectual, deep, mysterious and interesting' equivalent.

    Tons of traits are incorrectly given to particular dichotomies and first impressions of function attitudes get interference from peoples' experiences in life - 'Oh that trait sounds kinda like this person I know, that must be what that means!' These preconceptions may not ever get shaken off.
    Donovan and BlueSeven thanked this post.
