What logically explains this? Are Gammas in general less interested in socionics? I couldn't find a breakdown of how common each of the 16 types are, maybe Gammas are equally interested in socionics but just less common than other personality types? Are Gammas equally interested in socionics, equally as common as other types, but just less likely to post in their individual quadra forum as opposed to general forums? Based on some quadra value? Are Gammas equally interested in socionics, equally common as other types, but less likely to post in general, because of a lack of desire to connect with other people and share their experiences? Related to some Feeling function? Less likely to go to a 'forum' with other people, and more naturally independent in figuring things out, finding information, etc.?
Aren't Gammas normally go-getters in real life/careers? Maybe in general they are less likely to join an internet discussion forum, seeing it as a waste of time? Maybe there are more likely to join a different discussion forum as opposed to this one? Maybe they don't like the layout or the colors blue and white in general? Maybe Gammas are equally interested in socionics, equally as common as other types, equally desire to connect to others, equally value internet forums, equally enjoy this particular discussion forum, but happen to be the most commonly mistyped personality types, so people are more likely to post in different quadras, thinking it is their own, as opposed to their own Gamma quadra forum? Can some quadra value explain that hypothesis, that they don't understand themselves as well as other quadras, so they get mistyped a lot? It's a long-shot of an idea to explain the lack of Gammas...
I could go on and think of many possible different explanations, but the question remains... why does the Gamma quadra forum have less than 50% of the the threads/posts than the other quadras have? It bothers me that it seems a whole quarter of the personality types aren't truly being represented. Where do you think all the Gammas are?
