    Type and Novelty

    How does each type solve a new problem/react in novel situations where they are being measured?

    Is introversion/extroversion the dominant factor? Or sensing/intuition?

    I think that it depends on how well they understand the problem.

    Based on the data in "A Synthesis of Research on Psychological Types of Gifted Adolescents" by Ugur Sak, INTPs are the most overrepresented group (compared with U.S. society in general) among the "Gifted." The top 4 overrepresented were, in descending order: INTP, INTJ, INFP, INFJ.

    The numbers are quite interesting:
    Gifted Normal G/N
    INTP 12.05 3.54 3.40
    INTJ 7.53 2.62 2.87
    INFP 10.41 3.89 2.68
    INFJ 4.78 1.79 2.67
    ENTP 11.35 4.89 2.32
    ENFP 15.45 7.6 2.03
    ENTJ 5.84 3.93 1.49
    ENFJ 4.55 3.61 1.26
    ISTJ 6.83 6.92 0.99
    ISTP 3.23 4.16 0.78
    ESTP 3.21 6.52 0.49
    ISFJ 2.73 6.82 0.40
    ISFP 2.15 5.4 0.40
    ESFP 2.63 9.37 0.28
    ESTJ 3.89 14.97 0.26
    ESFJ 3.31 13.97 0.24

    The Pe functions(Se and Ne) thrive on novel experiences so most Ps in general value that.

    most Ps prefer their external world to change up every once in a while, Js prefer their external world to be pretty stable, structured, and predictable(this is assuming the type is fairly balanced).

    Well, I enjoy novelty & generally do well on tests. I don't do very well when being watched by someone. It makes me nervous and then I screw up, but that can be true of stuff I am very familiar with also. I'm pretty quick to learn & adapt otherwise, so much so that I get bored easily with routine & the familiar.

    I do quite well on tests, but generally don't like novelty. I prefer routine. I do like learning and doing puzzles I can do in the comfort of my own, however. I am an INFJ and also autistic, which could account for my like of routine.
