It really all depends where I go during the day and how well I know people.

Intuitives are harder to recognise. Soem people are misread at first.

The stupid ones.

But to answer the question I think you are asking, here is some information I recently read in a book. By the way the book is called "Do What You Are" by Paul D. Tieger and Barbara Barron.

You can break down the 16 personality types into 4 groups:

The Traditionalists (the SJ's) ESTJ ISTJ ESFJ ISFJ This group is about 46% of the population (hence our problem)

The Experiencers (SP's) ESTP ISTP ESFP ISFP This group is about 27% of the population (most of the time they are at the gym, or living vicariously through their children on the little league field so we don't have to mess with them much, unless they have you by the feet and are giving you a swirly in the high school lavatory)

The Idealists (NF's) ENFJ INFJ ENFP INFP This group is about 16% of the population (you often hear a lot of what this group has to say, especially in an election year, but need to smoke a lot of pot in order to understand it)

The Conceptualizers (NT's) ENTJ INTJ ENTP INTP This group is about 10% of the population (we are the nerd's and we will one day rule the world)

The thinking and feeling functions are the only two functions that have a gender bias. From what I have read no one knows weather this is because of nature or nuture. This is why INTP females feel so alien when in large groups of other women, I.e we are alien, INTP females are very rare.

All 4 groups take in information, we vary on what we do with the information. "People with the same temperment have a great deal in common and tend to share certain core values." (this is from the book).

Your "unbiased" assessment of the personality types is great; a damn shame how few Conceptualizers there are. Nerds will one day rule the world? I thought we already did.

Way south.
46% are SJs?! We are doomed!! :p

Society should achieve a balanced ammount of each type, that would be the healthiest thing.
