I have briefly looked at MBTI/political affiliation stats and I was surprised to find INTJ associated with various types of libertarianism*. On a Ron Paul forum the most common type as polled was INTJ also. I haven't seen any stats from countries other than the USA (I am not).
The reason I am surprised is that those theories tend to be bereft of many "big picture" - with which I associate N types - elements of global/social organisation as well as of the collective effect that individual actions may have on cultural forces and institutions such as religion. I personally tend to think of "libertarianism" as an attempt to build the big picture (community/society/environment/economy) on the basis of a small picture (individual freedom) - yet there are elements of that big picture which this approach seems unlikely to be capable of addressing (if you remove community/environment/religion - from the large picture then it is much more capable).
Well, this isn't about the grounds of my own theoretical understanding of the world or of libertarianism - I don't want to be thrashed over that. Just to ask: is it true that INTJ has a predilection towards Ron Paul etc? And if so, why? How do these INTJs deal with big picture factors like the possibility of climate change?
My only INTJ friend has similar political beliefs as do I: left/conservative - though with different logics.
*please excuse inaccuracies in my use of this term: I use it loosely to mean 'more self determination, less external regulation/constraint'.
