THE MBTI STUDY RESULTS :D

So, it seems the Myers-Briggs came up with very interesting results as well.

I would give you a sort of nice introduction but I am very tired today, so, I’ll just let the data speak for its self.

Method:

We had less people participate in this one and the sample size was only around 84.

Some…

Interesting. I’m INTJ Ravenclaw myself. I’m surprised there weren’t more ENTJ Slytherins.

Agreed. Both the to INTJ Ravenclaw and the ENTJ Slytherin comment. I generally think of extroverts as more charismatic, a key point of Slytherin.

Okay, I may have to address this. Introvert does not mean you are not charismatic. Introversion and extroversion has more to do with energy. Extroverts are energized around people where introverts become exhausted. This means that extroverts can like solitude at times and introverts can be rather sociable. Introvert does not equal shy.

Now, Slytherin does have leadership qualities as one of its traits and charisma would naturally help that but it isn’t actually listed as a quality of Slytherin. So, there’s that too.

This is not saying ENTJs aren’t welcomed or INTJs are strictly Slytherin. However, I am just clarifying some things that may be confused.

I do think INTJs do well in Slytherin though I am bias as I am an INTJ myself. In Slytherin, our official traits are ambition, determination, intelligence, self-preservation (which means we look at all options before proceeding), leadership qualities, resourcefulness, shrewd (which means they are very observant and notice things that are not always obvious), fraternity, cunning, and traditionalism.

That doesn’t mean INTJs can’t do well in Ravenclaw. I think they will thrive there as well given your traits. But as you can see, they would thrive here just as nicely. It all has to do with what you find more important knowledge or what you can gain from it. Slytherins are more into what we can get out of it. And, also, no two INTJs are exactly the same. This is because of the percentage of each letter. My brother in law is, also, an INTJ. However, he is a vice CEO and much more charismatic than I. This is because he just barely made it to Introvert and he knows how to pretend to be extrovert to get what he needs. Despite that, I don’t really think he’d belong in Slytherin. I think he is a Ravenclaw at heart. (He didn’t get his position based on ambition which is really weird. He didn’t strive for it and if you talk to him, you’ll see he really isn’t that big on going up the ladder. He just so happened to do it).

I think every house has every personality type. I do, however, believe the concentration of certain types would be more prevalent in certain houses but every type is possible. Since we do have a shared trait, we will have shared types too. I was actually pleasantly surprised to see so many INTJs. I thought I was all alone and yet, I’m not. I would love to see more polls done in other houses. You guys probably have a high concentration as well, I’m sure, It would be interesting to know more about what we got going on in Hogwarts. 



THE MBTI STUDY RESULTS :D 

So, it seems the Myers-Briggs came up with very interesting results as well.

I would give you a sort of nice introduction but I am very tired today, so, I’ll just let the data speak for its self.

Method:

We had less people participate in this one and the sample size was only around 84.

Some people didn’t know exactly what they were and they were left out in the graph for our purposes. However, they made up around 2.4% (2/84). For some reason if you put all the percentages together it becomes 100.1%. This is because I rounded each one to the nearest tenth. I went over the calculations over and over and it remains the same.

The results were compared to the normal distribution of these types in the USA. Instead of saying the range that is shown on the Myer-Briggs foundation website. I actually chose the number on the bottom (which seems to be their data) and not the range (that they estimated from the data) because the range would be harder to input into the site I was using to make the bar graphs.

The number of people were tallied up and then they were turned to percentages by dividing the number by sample size.

Results!

The values are as following

ISTJ 3.6% (3/84)  ISFJ 2.4% (2/84)           INFJ  11.9 % (10/84)  

INTJ  28.6% (24/84)    ISTP 3.6 % (3/84)   ISFP 8.3%  (7/84)

 INFP: 7.1 % (6/84)    INTP 14.3% (12/84)  ESTP 0%  (0/84)

ESFP 1.2% (1/84)      ENFP 10.7 % (9/84)  ENTP 1.2%    (1/84)

ESTJ 0% (0/84)       ESFJ 0% (0/84)    ENFJ 1.2% (1/84)

ENTJ 3.6% (3/84)

The normal distribution lies here

ISTJ 11.6%  ISFJ 13.8%  INFJ  1.5%  

 INTJ  2.1%    ISTP 5.4%  ISFP 8.8%

INFP: 4.4%    INTP 3.3 %  ESTP 4.3 %

ESFP  8.5%      ENFP 8.1%  ENTP 3.2 %

ESTJ 8.7%      ESFJ 12.3%  ENFJ  2.5%

ENTJ 1.8 %

Discussion:

As you can see our distribution is very different from the distribution in the US. However, keep in mind we have a much smaller sample, are on tumblr and may have a certain type of person that goes on here and aren’t all United States citizens. However, it is interesting to note that INTJ is one of the rarest types and yet is so prevalent in our little community. Research with other houses would bring more insight to what these results actually mean. Once again, I’m not doing actual validity tests on this information so, here is the data and take it how you will. :)
