# Myers-Briggs correlation with IQ

*From*: carl_r@xxxxxxxx*Date*: 26 Jan 2007 10:37:58 -0800

I was searching for information on the correlation of MBTI

types/subsypes to IQ. I came accross the following page:

http://libertycorner.blogspot.com/2004/03/iq-and-personality.html

Unfortunately there is no reference or e-mail address - but overall the

blog seems very competent.

----------------------

* Other personality traits being the same, an iNtuitive person

(one who grasps patterns and seeks possibilities) is 27 times more

likely to have a high IQ than a Sensing person (one who focuses on

sensory details and the here-and-now).

* Again, other traits being the same, an Introverted person is

8 times more likely to have a high IQ than one who is Extraverted; a

Thinking (logic-oriented) person is 2.5 times more likely to have a

high IQ than a Feeling (people-oriented) person; and a Judging person

(one who seeks closure) is about twice as likely to have a high IQ than

a Perceiving person (one who likes to keep his options open).

* Moreover, if you encounter an INTJ (Introverted, iNtuitive,

Thinking, Judging), there is a 37% probability that his IQ places him

in the top 2 percent of the population. The probability is 20% for an

INTP, 15% for an INFJ, and 8% for an INFP. These four types account for

66% of the high-IQ population but only 6% of the total population.

---------------------

Does anybody have references to correlations between IQ and MBTI

types/subtypes?
