And so the Myth 10.
Interestingly, the different MBTI types do not all occur with the same frequency in the UK general population and can range from about 14% down to 1%.
Those types which occur most commonly, like ISTJ, ISFJ, ESFJ and ESTJ, can often find themselves with others that are similar to them in how they may behave, react or feel in a certain situation.
However, for those with MBTI types which occur less frequently in the general population, INTJ, INFJ, INTP, ENTP, ENFJ and ENTJ, they may feel that others don’t really understand them, because they may not meet many others who are similar to them.
Again, there is no better or worse MBTI type to be but it’s worth remembering that you may not come across some personality types as often as others, but they still have something very valuable to bring to the table.
