Abuse Survivors by Jung Personality Type (Myers-Briggs MBTI)

There is a Reddit post that breaks out each MBTI Type reported by abuse survivors by Myers-Briggs type.

Reddit MTBI Survey Results
Reddit MTBI Survey Results

I have been thinking that the results need to be updated. First, I would like to know how many people have taken the survey. Second, I would like to look at results by gender, because there are known frequency differences between males and females for the personality types. For example, INTJ is 3.3% of males and 0.9% of females.

Thus, I need your help gathering data. With your help, I will collect at least 100 results. I will then weight them with the frequencies of each type in the general population. Hopefully, it will not be too long before I can post an update.

Frequencies of Jung (Myers-Briggs MBTI) Types

I found a website that has the information on frequency of each type in the general population and by Male/Female gender split.



Female & Male

MBTI & Jung Personalities

The MBTI is based on Jung’s personality theory. You can use your results from any version. I think that a full version that has around 40 questions is best though.

You can take the test here.

With those results, please help this project by answering the questions in the survey below.

What is your MBTI type?

  • Thank you Rebekah. I have wanted to do this for such a long time.

  • Please keep me updated on your study. I find this very fascinating!
    Thank you for putting in the time and effort to do this!

  • I’m not sure I understand this.
    Could you please explain it to me in some detail.
    I am the survivor of childhood abuse and 2 violent domestic relationships.

  • I think the MBTI personality test linked here is unnecessarily vague and confusing. Example: “I like to procrastinate.” (Agree or Disagree.) What exactly is being asked here? Do I procrastinate? Yes, all the time. But do I LIKE to procrastinate? Of course not, and I can’t imagine that anyone other than a passive-aggressive sociopath would. Luckily, I already know my type (INFP), but I would really suggest linking a better test.
