thank you for your thoughts on itI can't honestly see them ever finding out for certain, at least not in the forseeable future. I think it requires a lot of imagination, and I think imagination was key to the whole statistics.
Could they ever know for sure, without knowing whether the MBTI theory is even real? The whole theory seemed a bit too ordered to me, especially cognitive functions. It's always been a fit feel-good. Would they need (or be able) to test the whole world to get an accurate image, and would the whole world be able to test accurately if many people doubt its very validity before even taking the test? There's also the issue of mistyping, I've always tested the same type but many haven't been fortunate and tested for at least two differing types, sometimes more. For us to know for sure, the test needs some work.
But if we're talking about guess work, then Paranoid Android is right as usual. Supposedly the Ni dominant types of INFJ or INTJ are the rarest. One INFJ said its because apparently Ni isn't too useful for an environmental trait and has thus become recessive. But Ni sounds quite badass from my point of view.
Everyone and their grandma thinks they're weird.thank you for your thoughts on it
the MBTI is a theory yeah i really see your point.. i've heard INFJ was the rarest type too. in a way i regret asking this question cause its purpose is not of any importance. i just kinda felt like INFP would be the rarest type. i just dont understand why im in an environment where i see these people around me and i feel like an alien.. im NOT even FEELING it, I AM CONSTANT getting my CONFIRMATION of my "WEIRDNESS" thrown in my face with verbs...
INxx types gravitate to the internet and this is a very tiny proportion of the overall population. Outside they're quite rare and some people don't even realize that such people even exist.This entire site is crawling with INFJ's, INFP's and IXFX... I don't know how they would be rare...
