Since I work with data a lot, I thought I'd create this thread for random PerC and MBTI stats that I find interesting. Feel free to discuss, derail, and contribute to your heart's content.

Looks like INFP are quite interesting. I never thought of it that way. Whenever I think INFP I think Gaia from Captain Planet.

I went to advanced search, picked the subforum, and searched for the word in thread titles. I'm assuming there's an easier way? What's AlchemyAPI?
Oooh! Crafty. I didn't even think of that.

AlchemyAPI is a text-analysis thingie, really cool. Once I decided to try and sort my gargantuan list of bookmakrs by performing keyword analysis on the export file you get from Chrome - that's how I discovered it. Fatal flaw with my plan though - 9 out of 10 website titles SUCK at describing what the website is actually about.

I've really been itching to see it in action, but after that little snafu with the bookmarks I never found the time and what to let it loose on. So if we only had a nice big dataset.....

That might teach you to organize them in real time instead of saving whole sessions and adding stuff randomly in the bucket of bookmarks :p

I really thought that the percentage of "feel" threads made in the INTP subforum is higher. It always seemed to me like every other thread has something about that :}

Thanks for the data @%1;

The total threads created for each forum seems to jive with my impression of the types. Since joined PerC my only surprise was INTPs being verbose (posting wise). This type seems to be the most active in voicing opinions.

The % of word. Did you get it against where you found them (in the subforum) or total thread count from combining subforums from all 16 types?

I've also noticed that some veteran members don't frequent their own type's subforum but post often in more general forums like psychology, debate, MBTI, cognitive, and critical thinking.

I was surprised too.

The % uses the specific subforum's total thread count compared to the specific subforum's "love/hate/feel/relationship in title" count.





I've also noticed that some veteran members don't frequent their own type's subforum but post often in more general forums like psychology, debate, MBTI, cognitive, and critical thinking.
It would be interesting to do percentages based on the MBTI of the actual poster, rather than what subforum it came from. That website I posted a couple posts back would probably allow us to get that figure.

This is pretty neat. Good job.
I'm a bit surprised by the amount of threads INFJs create.
Especially if we consider the fact that they're supposed to be the rarest personality type.
It does make sense though. I suppose it has something to do with "Quiet people have the loudest minds.".

I'm also a bit surprised by my INTJ brethren and their use of the word love.
Then again I suppose it does make sense cause we're usually clueless in romance.

@SoulScream - you know me - I'm all about elegant solutions to avoidable problems :p
@InTheRockies - I checked that out, freakin Kudos to our fellow PerCifier. One of the nicer websites I've seen in a while too, speaking as a web dev. I ran a test search and the term "dissonance" is most frequently mentioned by INTJs and INTPs :p I'm gonna graciously go ahead and assume they are interested in cognitive psychology also, and not in a certain charming INFJ..

Across the top are the subforums I sampled from. Down the left side are the MBTI types that I searched for among the thread titles in that particular subforum.

-Red numbers are the highest numbers for the row (horizontal).
-Blue numbers are the highest numbers for the column (vertical).
-When the highest number for a column and a row are in the same cell, the number is duplicated.

*keep in mind that all types use all sub forums. Finding four INFP threads in the INFJ forum doesn't necessarily mean that INFJs created those threads. It also doesn't necessarily mean "like" or "dislike" that the conversation focuses on that particular MBTI in that sub forum. These numbers just give an idea of what the conversation revolves around in a particular section of PerC.

Thanks for the feedback!

I'm not sure how you mention people, I hope this is it :) I made some similar statistics using my dataset. This is a piece of text that you can copy-paste right into excel... I can't post images yet since I don't have enough posts.
