It is a while since I had a post with graphs. So following on from my post on the relative frequencies of female types, I present the same information in nice pictures.
The table below shows the frequency of each type for women. The pink/blue divide shows the proportion of that type that is female. In this case, ISFJ is the most frequent type for women (i.e., most likely for a random woman). Of all ISFJs, the majority, but not all, will be female. In this case, 17.5 percent of all women will type as ISFJ; about 70 percent of all ISFJs will be women.
The next table sorts types by their frequency for men. Like the previous one, the pink/blue divide shows the proportion of that type that is male. ISTJ is the most frequent male type comprising 16.5 percent of all men. Perhaps two thirds of all ISTJs are men.
The next two graphs show type sorted by proportion of women (first one) and men (second one) within each type. ISFJ is a very “popular” with women (71 percent of all ISFJs are women), ISTP is not very “popular” with women (only 25 percent of ISTPs are women). The graph for men does the same thing. Indeed, it is merely a mirror image of the female one.
The last is a diagram showing the percentages of Keirsey temperaments for the US population. I was surprised to see the relative low turnout for SP Artisans. I would have expected they and the SJ Guardians to be much closer.
You can find a description of the four temperaments on Keirsy.com.
I just noticed that I used different colors to represent the temperaments than he did.
