I stumbled upon a pretty interesting research article concerning MBTI types and giftedness, which I thought was pretty interesting and insightful.....I'll post the links below; the top one is in pdf (ideal), and the bottom one is in html. Anyhow, how accurate do you think this research is? I'm interested in hearing your feedback :)

These don't take cognitive functions into account, so I don't think they have much credence. I've read them before.

Interesting information, @SuperNova85 , but JungyesMBTIno is right - it completely disregards cognitive functions, which is pretty much the problem of MBTI. Notice how all the Intuitives are more "gifted" than Sensors. Of course they will be "intuitive" if you're coming from the perspective of Myers-Briggs, considering their view of "intuition" is pretty far off the mark.

So yes, interesting, but I don't think it's all that accurate. ^_^

Yeah, I would like to see another research study like this with the cognitive functions.......however I'm pretty sure this study can be manually broken down to take into account the cognitive functions....but who feels like doing that really...

How exactly did they measure "gifted". I apologize if I misread something or overlooked something.
If I'm not mistaken, one is technically "gifted" when a person has a certified I.Q. of 130+.

I thought it would be interesting to rank the 16 types based on Gifted/Norm ratio.

Type Gifted % Norm % Gifted/Norm Ratio
INTP 12.05 3.54 3.403954802
INTJ 7.53 2.62 2.874045802
INFP 10.41 3.89 2.676092545
INFJ 4.78 1.79 2.670391061
ENTP 11.35 4.89 2.321063395
ENFP 15.45 7.6 2.032894737
ENTJ 5.84 3.93 1.486005089
ENFJ 4.55 3.61 1.260387812
ISTJ 6.83 6.92 0.98699422
ISTP 3.23 4.16 0.776442308
ESTP 3.21 6.52 0.492331288
ISFJ 2.73 6.82 0.400293255
ISFP 2.15 5.4 0.398148148
ESFP 2.63 9.37 0.280683031
ESTJ 3.89 14.97 0.259853039
ESFJ 3.31 13.97 0.236936292

But I just want everyone to remember, if there were "stupid types", there would be no types that no intellectually gifted people tested as being.

So they are arguing that Fi+Ne (xNFP) and Ti+Ne (xNTP) types are the ones which have the highest IQ's?

They cannot be broken down into cognitive functions, because cognitive functions are conceptually different from the MBTI interpretations.

IQ is a highly debated and controversial theme, because it only measures one specific type of intelligence.

In recent years, some research papers have shown that emotional intelligence is more important than IQ when it comes to success.

And there are other forms of intelligence: musical, visual, kinesthetic, etc.

Look at Steve Jobs. Was he gifted? Yes. Was he a good student? No.

So, how they have defined "gifted" is pretty poor.

Yes...I am aware of the flaws of the I.Q. scoring system, but all I was stating is that 130+ is the official gifted score.
