Most intuitives here are probably actually sensors

Just a hunch

    Why would sensors be more interested in MBTI than intuitives?
    But I think sensors are cool too so I have no problems either way.

    Most sensor and intuitive usually know their types. The problem is when they don't know their intuitive/sensing that much and more of their thinking/feeling.

      You mean most perceivers know their type. The judgers are less likely to know their true type?

    Maybe most introverts here are actually extroverts? Would that be more accurate?

      Or most NTs here are actually not NTs?
      Or most INTx here are not INTx?

    Don't get me wrong sensors are really smart and stuff. If xNxx ran 75% of the population it wouldn't work, as Se and Si would immediately need to develop in order to survive and stuff.

    Ne and Ni are more useful to address the difficult Stage 2 questions. Stage 1 and Stage 2, I pulled from Warren Farrell - Stage 1 is survival. Stage 2 is post-survival. Nerveless, the ratio between N/S remain constant since the beginning of human race.

      It could be that the NF types I'm not too familiar about so I can't tell the difference between xNFx and xSFx.

      But I can tell NT types more easily. Scotty is definitely xNTx for example. NT types are more like professors, compared to university undergraduate students. Read a research paper versus a blog post.

      ISTx care more about facts and are less likely to talk about "weird" facts that are seemingly "off-topic". Professors, many of them, are more likely xNTx.

      rough guesses, not real statistics
      High school: 5%-10% xNTx
      Undergrad: 10%-15% xNTx
      Graduate Students/TA: 20%-35% xNTx
      PhD/Professor: 30%-60% xNTx

      NT > NF > sensors
      Introverts > Extraverts
      Rare > Common

      In fact, I think NTs are probably less than 15% of this website (that comment more than 20 times in total username history). NFs probably around 50%. Sensors probably around 40%

    Okay maybe over 50% is a gross overestimation. But 25%-49% is still a lot of USERS.

    The vast majority of true intuitives never even heard of MBTI let alone, participate in this website, let alone comment. Plus, many of them object to tests like MBTI and Enneagram because they may dislike boxing themselves in a label or group.

    I've noticed in American culture (well, where I live, Seattle, WA, so not all American cities people are like this) people I've met are very much reliant on labels whether it be racial, psychiatric, or things like "honors student", "UW student" or "tall person", etc. So this extends to MBTI as well ("INTJ").

    Plus, I sensed some SJ types are hated, or disliked at least (ESTJ, ESFJ) in this website, when I'm sure a nontrivial amount of users in this website are of those three websites. That is the most common of the four subtypes (SJ, SP, NT, NF).

    Or maybe those types are less likely to comment a lot, however it may be.

    Likely, though ISTJ, ISFJ, ISFP might be the most common sensor here that mistyped as an intutitive.
    ISTJs are very logical, could be mistaken as INTJ or INTP because they too are very logical. ISFJ and ISFP could be mistaken as one of the NF types and so on.

    However it could be true that the presence of the Internet helped solidify NT traits and particuarly INFP. In addition, the US is a very much a car-oriented society, in the suburbs, and in many places (i.e. schools) are not very socially friendly indeed. US is very much a XSTJ culture, Fi/Te emphasis and Ne/Si.

    Now, for those living in other places (Canada, UK, Australia, etc)

    This atmosphere is not for everyone, so some poeple develop their shadow functions at an earlier age.

    This may account for the fact that many users change their mind and such. In addition, the US, people here take a lot of drugs (including pharamacuetical drugs of any kind) so its likely that could influence behavior, if not null or enhance certain cognitive functions, some of which are shadow functions.

    Of course, people act differently on the Internet than in real life due to obvious reasons. In addition, if I were to record a video of myself talking, for example, it might be easier to type someone or such.

      I think maybe 10-15% is more likely. Most people here are actually pretty decent typists. I'm curious who exactly you believe is mistyped. Perhaps if you provide examples, we will be more inclined to believe you?

      Anyway, I don't think it's odd at all that mostly INxx types are interested in the theory. Even if it can seem like "boxing you in", it serves as a fun, theoretical, introspective tool, which one would imagine intuitives would be drawn to more than sensors. As for intuitive bias, I don't think that's all that odd either. While I do not condone intuitive-bias, I can see where it comes from. Many unhealthy intuitives view sensors (especially SJs) as their "oppressors" in a way. They view them as those "shallow high school bullies" and "stupid but popular and successful", or something similar to that. They learn about SJs when first getting into MBTI and think "so these were those people that always hated me and treated me like a crazy weirdo and judged me for every little thing", and thus, intuitive bias is born. They feel insecure with themselves, so they push sensors down to make themselves feel special in a way they feel they never got to feel before. It gives them the feeling of having "power over their oppressors".

      Labels are often used in order to connect yourself and your identity to something that means something to you. This, I imagine, is a large part of the appeal to type 4s, who are mostly INFPs. They can use their "label" to learn more about themself and their identity, and attach emotional meaning and significance to it. Along with finding yourself and your identity, another big appeal of "labels" can be the pride and sense of belonging to a group of common individuals, which I think both intuitives and sensors can be attracted to. But especially those intuitives that always felt like outsiders would find this aspect appealing.

      You're right about the SJs being "oppressors" in high school and middle school. Though low self esteem is a slight problem for the INxx types because of the SJs partly.

      Its kinda hard being an introverted intuitive, wonder what it would be like if I was a sensor?

      I would imagine most of the Extraverted sensors in this MBTI site wouldn't comment nearly as much, probably just voting their favorite characters and thats probably it.

      Maybe. Tbh I think the main reason there aren't really any ESxx type people commenting here is because there aren't that many who even come here at all. If there were more of them here in general then I'm sure we'd see more comments being made by them as well. But yeah, INxx types seem to be a lot more passionate in general about explaining their thoughts and theories about characters' types, which might make them inclined to comment more than other types.

      "In addition, the US, people here take a lot of drugs (including pharamacuetical drugs of any kind) so its likely that could influence behavior, if not null or enhance certain cognitive functions, some of which are shadow functions." Interesting. How would you say this affects function development? Could someone change their type by taking strong enough drugs?

      Being type 4 (or 3?) is key. If intuitives are genuinely common, people like OP don't get to feel special and superior anymore.

    No way can it be that many people who are mistyped. I think it's more like 20-30% from seeing around that many people change their type - maybe a little more/less.

    On a MBTI test, said im INTP, but when I study the functions a friend told me im ISTJ, after that I realice I was a stressed ISTJ who looks like an INTP (also Im e5)
