    Default Distribution of Socionics Types

    If anyone is interested, I put up the distribution of socionics types here http:// http://www.sociotype.com/tools/statistics#Socionics-Type-Distribution. Their based on approx 100k test results, so take them with a grain of salt.

    At the very least, this is good to get a ballpark figure of the general frequent internet user subset.

    I'm kinda surprised there isn't more variation in the distribution of types.

    Uhhhh you think 100k isn't enough people to base a fairly good estimate on?

    100k is more than adequate. I was referring to the inherent problems with the data itself: e.g., accuracy of the test results, people taking the test multiple times (thereby skewing the overall results), results aren't based on a random sample of the overall population, etc.

    Ok, true. My thoughts as well. "Distribution of Socionics Types on the internet assuming this test is reliable, the theory is true, and there aren't too many repeats." I think these are the problems of every online study. But it is a seriously impressive sample size so I'm inclined to ignore all that except "its on the internet."
