Many experienced typers will say that 3, 6, 9 make up a majority when combined, you fall a little short of that number.

I say 6>9>2>3>7>1>8>5>4

Online readings of what types are common is a skewed result. We get an over-representation of 5's on here. Many 4's are questionable as to if they're actually 4's, so I don't consider them over-represented because I lack confidence in their self-typing.

Depends your environment. I work in a restaurant while at school and 7's are frequent. I am somewhat confident to say that I'm the only 1 I've seen in the last 4 years there.
in the general population, 1s are pretty common though. they're common in all 8 J types; 7 is common in ENP, semi common in ESP and rare everywhere else

ISTJ should be a hotbed for type 1 activity given attention to structure, detail, objectivity, and withdrawn self-preservational tendencies, but this link shows how they are currently typing there: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0AkhQuj5UC4iPdEZWclNhc2RtV3o4Z0R1Vm9FWW5Td2c&hl=en_US#gid=0

1 is also a common type for
- ESTJ
- SFJs
- NFJs
- NTJs

I think the order is more like 6>9>1>3>2>7>8>5>4
but again, just a guess, you could be right
You really did a number on the 2 count there. I would be interested to have polls done regarding this subject using Timeless' test, I think it's the most accurate out there. You actually just copy and pasted my words to make the single change in position between 1 and 2 to make your prediction.

yeah, I think we agree for the most part.
I don't think making a poll would be a good idea though. the proportions of people on typology forums are going to be different from IRL. more 4s and 5s; less 3s 8s and 2s

some fairly hairbrained estimates based on my tentative and bad observations, that are very much in disagreement with the conventional wisdom on this topic.

Code:
     irl  onl
1    9%   6%
2    11%  3%
3    14%  9%
4    6%   17%
5    9%   14%
6    9%   7%
7    12%  8%
8    8%   5%
9f   9%   6%
9s   17%  25%
the only thing i know for sure is that slow 9 is the most common type.

that's interesting and just skimming it, i agree. how did you come up with that?

i can't speak to the fast/slow 9 as i have no knowledge of it.

Is there an explanation for why nines are the most common type?

In "personality types" Riso gives a matrix from which parental orientation comes which type. Type 9 results when the child is connected with both parents what is the ideal we all aim to, i suggest. For me it's a reasonable explanation since most parents try to do the best job and connect with their child.

doubtful. enneagram and mbti are correlated (albeit, not directly) and as MBTI type %s vary widely, it would be illogical to think that enneagram wouldn't as well
