It's an important thing to understand -- that to most people, rationality is a sideshow, not the main tent.

I took the test the other day and got ISTJ, which really didn't suit me. I have also tested out as INTP, which fits, and INTJ, which I find the best description of me.

I have been amazed at the number of NT (rationals) on this list -- we really are over-represented, in terms of sample versus population proportions. I guess that means the CoV really does attract rational people, eh?
