    Deltas could probably live anywhere, but...

    ESTj, Washington D.C. -- structure, government jobs, things are pretty clean.

    INFj, in the suburbs of a big city -- pretty surroundings and some nature are important.

    ENFp, New York City -- variety, nightlife, new people, artsy stuff.

    ISTp, on the edge of town -- anywhere laid back with easy access to outdoor sports, e.g. mountain biking, surfing, etc.

    Or combine all four into Canberra, Australia.

    Sucked in, America.

    I wouldn't live in Canberra even if you paid me in gold nuggets and chocolate truffles.

    Melbourne is the IEE capital of Australia.

    You say that like it's necessarily a good thing.

    Canberra's more of a hole than Adelaide.

    not LA, and probably not NYC so much, either. Although I actually like NYC somewhat. I like DC more though.

    Most of Northeast US, especially the New England region, perhaps with a few exceptions that mostly tend to lean towards Gamma. In Europe, I think most of Scandinavia and certain places in the western Mediterranean region, including France. Australia and New Zealand are hugely Delta. Much of Southern Africa, too. I'm not sure about Asia, but I would guess Japan and places like Hong Kong could be very Delta.

    Everybody would want to live in a mansion that the LSE bought, like Phillip Banks on "Fresh Prince of Bel-Air"; they'd all want to have their own rooms there.

    I think anywhere an ISTp would like (nature, isolated, open space, etc.) I would hate.

    I think this is why I keep meeting ENTps and ISTjs and what not. I just don't hang out in wide open spaces as it makes me claustrophobic with all that nature. And there are no restaurants or drug stores or anything. I feel secure knowing I can always pop into a store to get a bottle of water or a snack or something. Nature does not have that. sigh.

    I knew a guy (that I typed as a LSE) who once worked in DC as some sort of lawyer in "government affairs"; he used to describe DC as being a place where everyone flocked to the most important and most influential person.

    This along with with my impression of politics in general made me think it was a Se and Fe place.

    But then again I like to be where things are interesting, happening and cool. So I can sympathise and I guess if you're good at what politicians do, it would a good move regardless of type.

    I just like the city. It was clean. Nice to see monuments, etc. I haven't lived there. But I enjoyed walking around it a lot.

    Bottle water is less regulated than tap water. And it's also more expensive and has a lot of unnecessary transportation costs, etc.

    In London the government buildings are built to look as if they symbolises the stable centre of a "great" and ancient nation; you almost have the impression that if the buildings (and surrounding areas) are allowed to disintegrate the entire country will too.

    No idea of exactly what it means socionically... Se? Si? ESTj? ISTJ? Aristocracy? Fe?

    Anyway... just saying.

    There are places with lots of nature that also have most things available, at least here in italy or in austria/schweiz (towns of approx. 50'000 inhabitants, idk if that's too low for your standard). Besides, water from rivers in the mountains is much, much better than any bottled water...

    wow that's pretty cool. I've always been scared of natural water, but I guess Italy is pretty pure still?

    Are there many ISTPs there? Italian guys are hot. Maybe I should go.

    And I think alligators are ESTps.

    Well, I thin that in the USA it should be sufficiently pure, too. As long as you drink it sufficiently near to some mountain source i.e. you've got to be at around 2000 metres, and not at the center of the valley but on the slope

    Are there many ISTPs there? Italian guys are hot. Maybe I should go.
    Lol, I think there's a fair share, I know 4 personally, although 2 of them have an ENFp girlfriend already.

    Texas might not fit this criterion much longer
