    There might be a selection bias with a sample based around your associates though. Birds of the same feather flock together?

    I found this site which gives some estimates for the USA: http://www.myersbriggs.org/my-mbti-...ti-results/how-frequent-is-my-type.htm?bhcp=1

    3-5% for INTPs, covering a period from 1972-2002.

    As for the matter of extroverts being more than introverts, the statistics on the site I linked point to the answer being "Even split", roughly favoring Introverts a little. Extroverts are expected to be 45-53%, while Introverts are 47-55%. While INTP types are supposedly rare, other MBTI personality types that are Introvert are relatively common (i.e. ISTJs at 11-14% and ISFJs 9-14%.)

    Edit:

    As for my results, I consistently get INTP across MBTI tests run by different sites.

    Other times I've taken it, I've been INFJ-T. Depends on the day.

    It's quite interesting - since I first took this test roughly four years ago, my personality has changed quite a bit.

    I originally got INTP-A, way back when I was about 14, which then shifted to INTJ around two years later.

    I've been taking it over the past week, and I seem to vary between ENTP-A and ISTP-A depending on the day. It's definitely a reflection of how I've become more comfortable with people and social situations, and a curbing of the 'medium-fish, tiny pond' arrogance that I had in spades when I was younger.

    Results of the latest one are:

    Extraverted: 54%
    Intuitive: 54%
    Thinking: 81%
    Prospecting: 56%
    Assertive: 60%

    The first, second and fourth qualities seem to vary between 45-55%, and the thinking quality is consistently high.

    In case anyone is curious, I've attached the old MBTI results from 2012 (with sample size of over 200 DLPers). Skip to pages 3 and 4 for DLP-specific results. The rest of the slides are background.
