    Thanks, Paula. like you, I am an INFJ, Avalon seems to have quite a lot of that type actually, it ain't a 1% in here
    I remember we reached this conclusion two years ago. Here are two more threads on the subject, Bill has actually revealed his type as so many other members, it is so very interesting ~

    Thank you, Limor.

    I'll check out the sites. They were before I signed up. Could use a to wake them. I can't account for four here alone when it's only 1%. Unless a couple of the characteristics listed above may explain the concentrated population of INFJ:
    • “INFJ personalities are drawn towards helping those in need – they may rush to the place of a major disaster, participate in rescue efforts, do charity work etc...”
    • “...INFJs see this as their duty and their purpose in life – people with this personality type firmly believe that nothing else would help the world as much as getting rid of all the tyrants...”

    Thank you, Paula. It was an interesting test.

    My personality type: INFP.

    Strength of individual traits: I - 86%, N - 38%, F - 40%, P - 10%.

    It describes me extremely well... And it's no wonder that why I like Johnny Depp so much!

    INFJ Paula. Is it less than one percent of the general population, or of the less than 20% that are alive?
    And does alive mean awakened? And is general population the average? And what is average?
    Well I guess individuals with an understanding, or at least an unconscious or underlying nagging suspicion that 'life' is something other than a duration of conflict and dissatisfaction and compromise with other minds that are entirely unpredictable, undependable, unaware that the power that animates them is borrowed,
    and are liable to destroy everything that has any real value on a whim, which is Jesus' definition of dead.
    He's a picky bastard, but he doesn't dismiss 'dead' as unworthy of life.

    Or that can entertain the possibility that 'joy' doesn't need an opposite in order for it to be valuable. Gosh, we are narrowing it down.
    Try 1% of 1%.

    Hi Mark,

    Fear leads to anger,
    Anger leads to hate,
    Hate leads to suffering."

    Which group has the largest percentage paula??
    Hi Etheric Underground,
    Big thanks, Paul. Paula's ing to

    Paul's Post # 22. If you look across the bottom of the chart you’ll see the averages all fall in the “Guardian” quadrant. Below is the approximate average percentage:
    • Average Person: ISFJ @ 20%
    • Average Female: ESFJ @ 17%
    • Average Male: ISTJ @ 17%

    Average Person: ISFJ

    “The ISFJ personality type is perhaps the most altruistic and supportive of all types. ISFJs rarely sit idle – there is always a worthy cause awaiting their attention. Most personalities are quite willing to reciprocate when it comes to good deeds; however, ISFJs take that to a higher level, often going above and beyond what is actually expected of them. People belonging to this type thrive in areas that are both traditional (they are SJs, after all) and involve a lot of activities where their input could make a huge positive difference. Many ISFJs seek careers in the academic sector, medicine, social work or counselling; their personality traits also shine in administrative or clerical roles, or even in somewhat unexpected fields such as interior design.” [continued here]

    Average Female: ESFJ

    “If someone tried to define ESFJ personality traits in three words, it would probably be Practical, Altruistic and Sociable. ESFJs want to be of service to others and take their commitments very seriously – they do not really worry about what role they are in, as long as they get a chance to socialize with other people and feel valued and appreciated.

    ESFJs are great team players, always able to sense tensions and incompatibilities. They are very traditional, doing their best to support and defend authority and law. People with this personality type also tend to be very devoted, whether they are playing the role of a party host or a social worker. It is quite easy to recognize ESFJs in social events – they will find enough time to chat with everybody.” [continued here]

    Average Male: ISTJ

    “The ISTJ personality type is the second most popular one (11.6% of the U.S. population). “Only the facts, please” is their motto – ISTJ personalities respect facts greatly and tend to accumulate a lot of information in their own memory. One of the key contributing factors is their S trait, which allows ISTJs to analyse the surroundings quite effortlessly.

    Due to their straightforward approach, ISTJs may encounter difficulties when it becomes necessary to comprehend a competing theory or idea. However, people with this personality type are nearly unstoppable if they believe that a specific idea is valuable and can be implemented – they will consider it their duty to establish and maintain a smooth operation. As soon as the new procedure proves its usefulness (i.e. it becomes apparent that the new approach actually works), ISTJs will put a lot of effort to enable its successful implementation, even at the expense of their own health.” [continued here]

    Well I'm an INFP although I agree with most of it I also love logical thinking and factual endeavours which apparently INFP don't like.

    Thanks Paula. The Myers-Briggs is one of the best personality tests. I've taken it before, but that was several years ago and I do not recall what I scored before, so I took it again.

    INTP here.

    It fits me perfectly. I´m impressed!

    http://www.16personalities.com/intp-personality

    "They are not that concerned about the real world and practical things – from the INTPs’ perspective, it is often less exciting than ideas and intellectual pursuits. People with this personality type have no difficulties noticing patterns where others cannot – this makes them brilliant theorists and analysts."

    "The accumulated knowledge is the most valued asset of any INTP. Imagine an immensely complicated clockwork which is constantly absorbing, processing and generating all kinds of theories – this is how the INTP mind works. People with the INTP personality type possess the most logically precise mind of all personality types"

    "INTPs are usually very intelligent and insightful people, able to remain unbiased in any situation. They absolutely love new ideas and theories and would never miss an opportunity to discuss them with other people"

    "INTPs cannot stand routine work – they would much rather tackle a difficult theoretical problem. INTP personalities really have no limits when it comes to theoretical riddles – if there is no easy solution and the topic is interesting enough, an INTP can spend ages trying to come up with a solution."

    "In their opinion, the only good solution is the logical solution – INTPs do not see a point in using emotional arguments. Such an approach preserves the “sanctity” of their intellectual method"

    "Individuals with the INTP personality type are likely to be very open-minded and even eccentric."

    "Even when an INTP is arguing with someone, this should be taken with a grain of salt – they might as well be arguing with their own mind." <<< This is totally who I am.

    INFP - with strength of traits at: 42,24,50, 44%.

    Like most similar tests, I'm certain that were I to do it on another day, I'd get a different result !!! Generally much better than most other tests though, and I can very strongly identify with the personality description, especially .....
    Quote They respond to beauty, morality, virtue rather than utility, effectiveness or value.

    I tested INFJ , less than one percent of the population ? funny how a survey of sorts can peg you as you pretty much are without having never seen or spoken to you ... somebody knows what questions to ask ...

    Synchronicity ...

    I was just chatting with a friend who brought up the subject of our personality types and understand how to deal with certain types. Figured I would stop in and catch up because it's been a few days, and I saw this thread. Cool beans!
