    Seems like the opposite to me. Those types are more and more valued by society and the space for good jobs in anything but technical, creative, generally severely cognitive nonroutine work is disappearing. Beyond that it's the same problem of haves and have nots it's always been - are you competent? lucky. are you socially skilled enough to be political? lucky. are you able to anticipate future events and come up with good ideas? lucky. there are people of every type who are not lucky enough to have the strengths of their type relative to others that the market is looking for.

    I don’t know if I agree with your assumption that Ti and Ni make for the smartest types (how is Ni “smarter” than Ne? Ti “smarter” than Te?).

    Even if we assume that what you’re saying about Ni/Ti is true, I think you have it backwards. Being dumb makes you more vulnerable.

    Overall inclination is towards standardization. Irrationality is a big minus (Se is better than Ne in that realm), logic can still save your ass (gives much better tolerance to concentrate on "boring" stuff), peripheral inclinations (alpha, delta) are not great.

    Throw in LIE as well for a close second, but you might be able to bump it up to first. It depends on who ILI is.

    I'm not explaining why the invincible powdered donut boy (me) is vulnerable. I think you'd understand quite quickly that I'm bluffing, but I'm also not, as emotionally, yeah I am.

    A lot of people are vulnerable for no reason of their own. I honestly don't think this is type related, but you probably can create a distribution of type by traits that are associated by vulnerability. The main issue with the problem is vulnerability takes so many different forms.

    What kind of exploitation are we talking about? There's people who will work a job that underpays them for years for no true gain. There's people who exploit people based on their inability to stand up for themselves. There's people who make fun of deficiencies in character. I've seen tons of this stuff over my life, be it well meaning or not. I suspect you could associate them to the functions, and would bother, but I also suspect that is just going to open up a can of worms if I tried to do that. I already know how it works, if you care, you can ask me, though I've learned I respond best to case scenarios.

    The best one is when someone gets upset at someone else for being honest, because that's the one I get to jump onto and wreck. A close second is when someone insults someone else, but I'm less comfortable with defending that, as I'm probably a bigger target than the other weirdos that I tend to end up defending, but somehow, I'm much more successful doing that than the other, more preferred example. Not that I'd care, I'll do both at the same time.

    An optimist - does not get discouraged under any circumstances. Life upheavals and stressful events only toughen him and make more confident. He likes to laugh and entertain people. Enters contact with someone by involving him with a humorous remark. His humor is often sly and contain hints and double meanings. Easily enters into arguments and bets, especially if he is challenged. When arguing his points is often ironic, ridicules the views of his opponent. His irritability and hot temper may be unpleasant to others. However, he himself is not perceptive of this and believes that he is simply exchanging opinions.
