Pumpernickel bread: J.Shelby: There is a strong correlation between religious and political views, Myers-Briggs types, IQ, and brain structure.

/There, that outta do it.

Not really.  using Coheh's rule of thumb, any of those relationships would be described as weak and at best moderate.  With a large enough N, you can show just about any small difference to be statistically significant at the .0001 level, but that isn't the same as saying the effect is large.  Also, would be better to look at income within job type, or at least exclude the outliers - CEOs and senior executives that are largely extroverts.

Using the Star Wars type indicator, I be Yoda.


I am disappointed.  For Fark's sake.  What is this logical, well-reasoned response ? ? ?  I know you know what ad hominem  means, damn it.

P.S. Thanks for reminding me I left out income, and how the rich are fully deserving of their wealth.

ISTP are Artistans? Most folks in IT seem ISTP, and they are paid way more than that.

According to the Wikipedia article on this, ENTJs are "field marshalls" whereas INTJs are "masterminds", kinda makes sense. ENTJs are the Julius Caesars of the world, INTJs are the Augustus Caesars.

While looking at your chart, I had thought that if you reverse all of my Myers Briggs values, that would be the person I would dislike the most.

Checked the chart: Jar Jar Binks.

Supposition confirmed.

ENTP qualified me to captain Trivia Newton-John. You can't put a price on beating a MENSA team - filled with INTJs - on a Willi Plett tiebreaker question. Useless knowledge is the best knowledge.

Is there a chart correlating MTBI types and number of minutes until one has to be to the gym? ENTJ=26, INTP=infinity?

This whole attempted morphing of "extroversion" into "extraversion" is a little silly. "Extraversion" looks like "extra version". The word has roots, but the roots do not need to be concatenated unchanged to form a new word. It's not "the right way" - there is no "right way" to create new words. Creating a new word is like creating a persistent viral meme - it's chaotic and unpredictable. And the original form, "extroversion", existed for a long time so people knew what it meant.

"Extraversion" sounds like a student trying to spell the words phonetically from the roots without knowing the actual spelling of the word.

// Finally, a soapbox for a rant that had been building for some time.

Oh, these things crack me up. Had a buddy who took and retook the test until it finally showed the desired INTJ result.

I am a INTP "Architect".
Defined by: Greatest precision in thought and language. Can readily discern contradictions and inconsistencies. The world exists primarily to be understood. 3.3% of total population.

I have taken this test along with various others including I.Q. (pointless) MMPI (worthless) and various others.
Knowing this does absolutely nothing for me.

This INTJ agrees.
 
2013-11-05 01:05:04 PM  
I usually test as an ESTJ or ENTJ.  I make exactly the average ENTJ.  Therefore this study is completely accurate.  Pretty definitive, if you ask me.

The median household income in the U.S. is about $50,000.  The fact that every one of the personality types earns more than that tells us that their graph is nonsense.

Although, they are using "average household income" instead of median, which means they may be incompetent enough to actually be using the average.
 
2013-11-05 01:49:46 PM  
INTJ here. Ok, now what?
 
2013-11-05 01:53:35 PM  
It may also have to do with what people THINK their type is, as opposed to what it actually is.  I know for a fact that my rational judging brain thinks that I'm INTJ, but as I have matured and realized that I do not actually behave in a way that matches my ideals, I realize I'm more INFP.
 
2013-11-05 01:55:51 PM  

Target Builder: I'm surprised that INTPs are so far down the list. I guess it must be a harsh personality type to have if you're not smart enough to be an engineer or computer programmer.


That is what i was thinking. I would have figured that more engineer type roles would be prevalent and lead to a significantly higher earnings. I didnt really RTFA however I also suspect that being I have read that INTP is the least common of the personalities (somewhere around 1-2%) that there may be an under sampling as well

I don't put usually put much stock in these things, but I now have some understanding of the differences between me and my wife. She is an ISFP and me of course, an ENTJ. And I am the breadwinner of our house, so accurate on my anecdotal evidence

I am an INFP, which I think is a very accurate assessment of my personality.  Yet, I am an engineer, a career for an INTJ.  I do not think of myself as the typical engineer.

Dated a woman whose background was in developmental psychology.  She had me pegged as an INFP after a few dates, and even made me take a long version of the test to confirm it.  She was an ESFJ.  She believed strongly in the personality assessment and how well her type matched up with mine.

Unfortunately, she had some serious issues with self esteem, anxienty, stemming from a history of abusive relationships and her issues with codependency.  Fitting for someone with a caregiver personality type.  And me with mine, wanting to understand her scared her away because she wouldn't talk about her problems.

I've dated too many women with backgrounds in psyschology.  I should stop doing that.  It never ends well.

I'm a Fire sign in the Western astrology and a Water sign in the Chinese astrology.

Needless to say, I can debate myself endlessly. Sometimes I have knock 'em down, drag 'em out fights with myself just to keep in form.

But I refuse to beat myself up.

Hey, Blue Man Group, er, Dr. Manhattan, you're talking cow pucks.

A live body and a dead body are extremely different structurally, except perhaps just before the moment of death. Life is all about structure and function, chaos and complexity, not about nice neat columns of numbers. Sure, they have the same number of particles, but structure, that's a hell of leap you made there, bigger than the leap from Earth to Mars.

You think like an accountant, man.

No wonder you gave up on humanity. YOU GAVE UP ON HUMANITY MAN. Because you couldn't see the forest or the trees for the entropy.

You know, there's such a thing as thinking too big and taking the over-long term view.

3 years ago:

I - 78%
N - 50%

J - 22%

3 months ago:

I - 100%
S - 1%
T - 88%
J - 22%

Evidently over the past three years I have learned to pay more attention to my senses, and I really didn't like what they were telling me.

I am the seemingly rare INFJ. I work in social services for special needs individuals and am a musician. Pretty spot on, I suppose.
