    The types that are not my own type.

    I have yet to personally encounter a LIE or a SEI.

    I encounter most of them often. The ones I encounter the least are female versions of my dual and conflictor, since I actually don't go to places where one would typically encounter them.

    Depends on where you are. At home goods stores I see a lot of SEE. At cheap goods stores I see a lot of SLI. At hardware stores I spot SEE and LSE. At book stores you may see EII. Music departments ESE. ESE are also found eating out sometime by themselves. They avoid relationships sometimes so they Can do things alone. I find IEE at church social events, sometimes at concerts

    Frequently: LSI

    Rarely: ILI, maybe SEI as well

    The rest all seem about the same to me.

    If I'm to answer this question seriously, I'd say what I notice more often are people who do not show off (or perhaps, in a sense, are lacking) their ego functions. In this way they don't seem like types as socionics gives them. Instead, they are very diluted versions. For example, my roommate is IEI but only because he clearly has beta values, and is Ti HA. There isn't really anything that seems distinctly Ni about him as it's typically characterized. And many of the Ni traits that people might consider to be impressive are really non-existent in him. All i can really say about him is that he is pretty enthusiastic and a decent guy to be around. But all in all he just seems like another normal guy. Contrast this to an IEI-Ni friend I had in high school. This guy was a really talented artist, pretty good at philosophizing and thinking critically and abstractly, and knew how to handle people. You only need to identify two functions to identify someone's type so it's also true that someone only has to display two functions/IEs. So in the first example you see a guy who really just seems like an Fe creative type who values Se whereas the second variant seems to display all of the traits. I think the former example is very common while the latter is very rare. One is an IEI sort of by default while the other fits the the descriptions pretty well. I'd like to say there is some correlation with intelligence but both are very intelligent people. It just so happens that one is much more impressive than the other.

    What i'm pretty much getting at is that in reality you don't get these super impressive people that type descriptions might lead you to believe in. Instead you get people who are their type by default and not because they have special abilities or something like that. This is why identifying which types are more rare than others is hard to do. They might be somewhat equal; you just don't get these strong variants very often.

    @ContraI view them all together as a 3D bell curve, then view each individual type as a 3D bell curve. Then I slice them up lol.
