    All I know is that it feels like Betas and Deltas are plentiful in the US. I'd say Alphas are a somewhat close runner up. Gammas seem sparse here, but maybe there is some sort of bias at work.

    I think culturally you can have the bias present. But amongst people themselves, I'd side with the law of averages and say its an even spread over a large population.
    I would say that ethically you are still supposed to act as if you have unilateral responsibility; but simultaneously you have to be able to see the other as a fully autonomous, free, aware person.

    Medicalizing social problems has the additional benefit of rendering society not responsible for those social ills. If itís a disease, itís nobodyís fault. Yay empiricism.

    Distribution of types has to be very similar across countries (form my observation delta ST's and alpha SF's are in abundance, while Beta NF's and gamma NT's seem very rare), it's more of a big city/rural area difference. And also values that are different from country to country, so as a whole the country has certain quadra spirit, not more individuals of said quadra.

    Balkan region is very Beta in values. Si, Te and Fi are more devalued the more south you go.

    I always thought the United States was more beta/gamma, SLE/LIE like, Canada was more delta-ish.

    North Korea- unhealthy beta LSI dictatorship
    LII-Ne with strong EII tendencies, 6w7-9w1-3w4 so/sp/sx, INxP

    United states is a pretty big place and varies from many different extremes to everything in the middle. So I'm sure you're all right.

    I think you will find they are evenly distributed ahem.

    Edit: Oh wait, I thought this was a joke, it's not.

    What about Spain?

    I wouldn't say gamma are sparse...just not as immediately noticeable. They're all in their offices making power plays, navigating stupid rules, assuring their positions are good

    Also I notice a trend where you've placed shitty places to live as Beta, and America's former lapdogs as Delta(assuming you include Germany as Northern Europe).

    As a Beta I'd much rather live in "shitty" and chaotic South America than in Japan or US (except NYC), tyvm : )

    Well, have fun with that. I wasn't really speaking about South America, though, as I don't know much about it. I do know there are some good places to live though,along with the slums. I'm sure that's true about all those places, but in general, in those places any one person is going to have less of a chance of having an affluent life(in some absolute standard, as opposed to relative).

    Lol, I'm having fun with it every day since I was born Yes, people are on average poorer in these areas. They don't seem any less happy or neurotic on average though.

    Just don't see the supposed obvious correlation between shitty and poorer.

    Affluent means more than poor, I suppose. It has more to do with the standard of living you experience than the money in your pocket. Think important things like health, education, etc. I'm not saying you can't be happy with the place you've carved out for yourself in those societies, because trust me, I would kill to live in a less neurotic place(or just...be less neurotic lol). Affluence is not measured by how many Starbucks or Panera Breads there are, it's how much of the bullshit of life has turned positive. If you want to PM me, I'm actually pretty curious to hear what daily life is like in South America, but I think I'd rather not derail this thread further.

    Agreed, basic needs have to be met otherwise life is pretty shitty. I'm not from S America though, unfortunately : ) I'm from Eastern Europe (or is it technically Central - well, not first world by gdp anyway).

    Theres some old thread on the quadra dominances per country.

    I believe USA was gamma and now is transitioning to delta. Makes a bit of sense with Delta having the sustainment notion associated with them. Beta had the revolutions in the 60-70's. Moved into Gamma before and during the economic boom (bubble?) and now we seem to be moving away from growth economically and into the sustainment of our quality of life. I think Obama put in some good work economically for the future (ESI I believe) but I think the next Republican in office will try to dismantle alot of that in favor of immediate benefit, which is more of a judicious thing. Probably fall right back into delta.



    I believe it goes something akin to -
    Alpha pushes ideas into the cultural consciousness to improve society
    Beta uses that as fuel to restructure the system and quo
    Gamma sharpens and refines the system to get the maximum benefit
    Delta sustains the system to keep it functional for as long as possible.

    Then something like widespread racism or some other giant problem fuels Alpha back into motion and starts the cycle anew.
    I would say that ethically you are still supposed to act as if you have unilateral responsibility; but simultaneously you have to be able to see the other as a fully autonomous, free, aware person.

    Germany is Western/Central Europe
