Most people do not believe them when I tell them I am an introvert. I get this response you can’t be you seem so normal. You should know that according to a study that asked the question, “How many people in the World are introverts? Came back with these stunning numbers:
In the 1998 MBTI Manual that came out with Form M. A
National Representative Sample was done in conjunction with the development of Form M, and it is the standard that we go by now. It was the first (and only so
far) stratified random sample done. Here are the EI breakdowns:
E 49.3%, I 50.7%
E 45.9%, I 54.1%
E 52.5%, I 47.5%
Laney and Wagele used earlier “estimates”of 25% I/75% E (probably from the 1985 MBTI Manual). The 1998 National Representative Sample (Total = 3,009, Males = 1,478, Females = 1,531).
