    It's hard to say. My guess is that it's most common in types with extremely weak Fi whether they value it or not. Though I've known some pretty self absorbed IEEs. It may be better to look at it as a function of certain circumstances (e.g. sustained success in many areas, being good looking, having intelligence, people who have a lot of positive traits and haven't really ever been humiliated or perhaps are trying desperately hard not to be humiliated) rather than type.

    EDIT: I should note, it would also depend on the type of egomania. Some people become obsessed with an ideal version of themselves that just isn't true to reality, others truly are successful and become self absorbed out of that, and still some become obsessed with their own theories and normative beliefs.

    Extroverted types will be slightly more prone to egomania, Intuitive types more than Sensors - I read something once about how psychoanalysts have linked Extroverted Intuition with pure narcissism (a sense of grandeur) and Ni with "inverted narcissism", dunno if I can find it now. Se was associated with the phallic personality (Martian-like, warrior etc.) and Te with the anal-sadistic type.

    In a sense, Socionics is a system that describes 8 narcissistic types and 8 counter-dependent narcissistic types.
