    Huh. Is that really the case? I thought Socionics held that there was an even distribution of every type?

    Please, direct all questioning of my self-typing to this thread. Thank you.

    MBTI offers statistics on types. While not socionics it is based on jungian functions as well. This is their stats:
    the sensing-logical types are 30% of population
    the sensing-ethical types are 43% of population
    the intuitive-ethical types are 10% of population
    and the intuitive-logical types are 16% of population
    source - http://www.theanconas.com/MBTI/mfstats.htm
    I question the validity of these statistics. Where are these numbers comming from?

    I'll take them with a few handfuls of salt nonetheless.

    Anyways, lets not derail this discussion because it is about supervision and not type statistics
    Your right. I'll start my own thread on the topic, when I can be bothered to do so.
