    Default Type and Gender

    everyone knows that :

    1. men are 65-70% logical
    2. women are 65-70% ethical
    3. all other jungian dichotomies distributes to 50% of each gender

    but Reinin complicates things...

    I'm wondering if :

    1. men were more Static, women more Dynamic
    2. men were more Negativist, women more Positivist

    or such - there are 2 kinds of dichotomies : those which correlate with genders, and those which don't.

    Obviously, the Reinin dichotomies don't complicate things - if you know someone's type, you can predict which end of each Reinin dichotmy they will fall in - if they don't match a significant number of those relelvant to their type, you have reason to believe the typing was wrong - certain permutations you have observed in a person will resembled the behaviour characteristic of each type...it doesn't tell you whether the person is male or female, there are better tests anyhow.

    Conversely, why predict which dichotomies or type a single person has based on their gender? It's not helpful - it might be if only one in a million of a particular type was of one gender, the remaining 999,999 the other.
