    Question Which personality is the smartest?

    You be the judge!


    Sorry, I made two mistakes on the poll:

    ENSP should be ENFP
    ENSJ should be ENFJ

    I wasn't confusing Sensing with Feeling, but rather the sound that S makes with the sound that F makes.

    Although if your personality just so happens to be ENSP or ENSJ, then you are more than welcome to vote for yourself.

    Obviously it's and introvert, obviously it's a thinker. J's are too preoccupied with order to be creative enough. And not being able to see the trees for the woods can be as bad as the converse. It has to be someone that can conceive a stratagem but realise the benefits of the tactical even outside the constraints of the strategic.

    I'm would go for the IXTP, but considering the evolutionary success of the sensors, perhaps IXTP with slight leanings to the S.

    So yes, most definitely ISTP.

    [/EOM]
    Keep calm and carry on.

    Not a bad point, though not just the "constraints of the strategic", but the constraints of definition and composition.

    That is why some ISTPs are so cryptic.

    Well if we're going to say that evolutionary success is decided by number of individuals and that it indicates how smart they are then can I nominate beetles as the smartest?

    The commonness of Sensors points to lower, not higher, intelligence. The role of Sensors is to work the machinery of civilization. The role of Intuitives is to continually design that machinery. To design such machinery takes a few; to build and run it takes a great many. Hence the rarity of Intuitives.

    Have you ever had a conversation with a beetle?

    INFJs are the rarest personality, so perhaps they're the smartest.

    What are we using to determine intelligence?
