    MBTI Type

    Most polls of online communities will differ quite a lot from the general pop stats (assuming those are correct). I'm actually surprised at how many people got ISFJ, since they're not that active in MBTI communities, like r/INTP is about 10x more active than r/ISFJ. The INFP section of Personality Cafe is something like 500 posts per day of INFPs talking about everything while the ESFJ section is 20 posts a week and it's mostly 1-2 ESFJs talking to other types. Generally it goes I>E, P>J, N>S for online presence. For the biggest MBTI communities, it usually goes Most common: INFP Also very common: INFJ and INTP Still strong presence: INTJ, ENTP, ENFP Moderate presence: ISTP, ISFJ, ISFP, ENFJ, ENTJ, ISTJ Virtually non-existent: ESFP, ESFJ, ESTJ, ESTP (even though those include the #2, #5 and #6 most common types IRL according to your chart) I guess it depends for trolling. Usually it's Ne that'll come up with something funny in INTPs/ENTPs so ENTPs are more likely to come up with that due to stronger Ne and then Fe will determine whether others will appreciate it or get offended. I also think INTP is more likely to point out logical and factual flaws (Ti & Si). I think ENTP might actually be less likely to understand how others feel towards them than INTP since that would be more Fi which INTPs are a bit better at and ENTP might be more likely to go after people's strong emotions/moral convictions due to being more distrustful of those. I think INTPs are supposed to be able to basically suppress Ti to allow Fi to come out and interact with Ne. Even though they prefer using Ti in conjunction with Ne than Fi-Ne, since Ti is stronger and more comfortable to use, the high degree of control over Ti can make it easier to shut off when needed. ENTP Fi is painfully weak, even worse than for INTPs. ENTP have Fi as vulnerable and Fe as mobilizing INTP have Fi as role and Fe as suggestive http://www.the16types.info/vbulletin/content.php/258-Model-A-Blocks-and-Functions-of-the-Socionic-Model-of-the-Psyche

    If other people get close to my score maybe we can move to more disks. Until then... well doing 9 disks would take forever even if you know exactly what you're doing so I'm not going to try it yet.

    I think if you're able to get the right type then their descriptions of what kind of person you are are pretty good, but sometimes it's difficult to get the right result by taking an online test. Are there some type descriptions you relate to better than others?

    Well you could also be ISTJ. One thing about this test is that it doesn't distinguish very well between what you value and what you do a lot/what you're good at. ISTJs can still care about other people but will be more focussed on accomplishing various objectives (ex a successful career) so that they can take care of people close to them. Which of these socionics descriptions do you relate to more? Focus on the Te and Fi for SLI/ISTp (yes ISTp in socionics is equivalent to ISTJ in MBTI - not ISTP) http://www.sociotype.com/socionics/types/SLI-ISTp/ vs the SEI/ISTp (equivalent to MBTI ISFJ) description - focus on the sections about Fe and Ti http://www.sociotype.com/socionics/types/SEI-ISFp/

    That can happen, I'm pretty sure I'm INTP but when I take the test it's usually pretty close to 50/50 for T vs F so I have gotten INFP once. ESFJs and ENTJs can both be driven by ambition but there will still be differences. ESFJs generally place more value on their personal relationships with people and will feel very much in their element in social environments. They'll usually have lots of charm and be pretty good at impacting the mood of a social environment and cheering people up. They're usually quite good at making people feel comfortable and keeping track of various personal details to make people feel appreciated, such as birthdays, interests, as well as being skilled at learning from past interactions with people to know how to interact with them in the present. They can be people pleasers since being well liked by their peers and family is important to achieving a sense of security. They don't consciously expect anything back for their people pleasing and helpfulness and generally aim to be self sufficient, but it sure feels good to know that if by any chance they ever do need help, there will be a lot of people who appreciate them and will be willing to help. This means that feeling in conflict with people or rejected can make ESFJs rather distressed. Being able to figure out various intellectual concepts usually requires hard work, so ESFJs are less likely to indulge in such things in their spare time since they probably have to do it for school/work and find that draining enough. They'd rather listen to someone else give a concise and well thought out explanation than figure it out for themselves and will value people they see as competent in such matters. They'll often talk to people about what's going on in their lives to see what others think/feel about various situations and have them help make sense of things, although sometimes just putting those experiences into words can help the ESFJ figure things out themselves. Compared to ENTJs, ESFJs will be more in-the-moment and more into lighthearted humour and silliness. ENTJs are definitely quite goal oriented. While for an ESFJ achieving a sense of security is more about their social ties, for ENTJs it's more about other people seeing them as a successful, capable, intelligent and accomplished individual. Social connections are still important to ENTJs but compared to ESFJs they're more of a means to achieving their personal goals. ENTJs usually have decent social skills but compared to ESFJs it's less about small talk and emotional expressiveness and more about coming off as smart and competent and having interesting things to say. ENTJs are going to be more confident about breaking convention. ESFJs might break the rules if they think they can get away with it, but that mostly means stuff like speeding or trespassing that they know other people do too, since ESFJs are more likely to think in terms of "has this been done before and did it work" while ENTJs are more likely to come up with more complex schemes when it comes to coming up with their own way of doing things. ENTJs are quite good at coming up with their own plans to achieve a desired future outcome and executing them.
