Myers-Briggs

I came out ISTJ, although the "j" was only 55% (i.e. close to a "p")... Survey says:

"ISTJs are often called inspectors. They have a keen sense of right and wrong, especially in their area of interest and/or responsibility...ISTJs are most at home with "just the facts, Ma'am." They seem to perform at highest efficiency when employing a step-by-step approach... ISTJs are easily frustrated by the inconsistencies of others, especially when the second parties don't keep their commitments...SJ"s are traditional, practical people that keep the home fires burning. They are also great athletes. (Okay, the last sentence was a fib). Men are more likely to be ISTJ (19.4% of the male population), whereas women are more likely to be ESFJ (14.1% of the female population).

I'm a little skeptical about how few fellow ISTJ'rs among St. Blog's. It is one of the most common types and the description above doesn't sound all that rare. Looking at the Murderer's Row of INTPs (I mean that in a good sense), it must be the "desired" type:

Xavier+ INTP 3.3% of general population
Disputations INTP 3.3% of general population
SecretAgentMan INTP 3.3% of general population
Gospel Minefield INTP 3.3% of general population
Fructus Ventris INTP 3.3% of general population
Recovering Choir Director INTP 3.3% of general population


Them's some good apples! And very, very smart. (I wonder what ol' Hernan is?) I hope I haven't offended anyone - I'm not implying the other groups don't have great folks and, of course, and who am I to judge, but this group is jam-packed with people I'd like to emulate.
