Why I am an Idiot

Interestingly, I think that the internet has been a huge boon for those of us who have introverted-intuitive personalities.  A few years back, when Rod Dreher was still blogging at beliefnet, he put up a post linking to an online Myer’s Brigg’s Personality Inventory and invited readers to leave their personality type in the comments.  Overwhelmingly – I’d say at least 80% – the commenters were Introverted Intuitive.  Which is remarkable given how unusual Introverted Intutive personalities are.  Somewhere between 8-12% of people have this personality type.  I know that the internet has had an outsized influence on my world precisely because I have this unusual personality type.  I’m intensely interested in ideas but finding other people who want to talk about religion, personalities, philosophy and such in real life is tough.  However, on the internet, it’s easy enough to find other people who share such fixations that a fairly popular blogger could have a readership made up almost entirely of other oddballs like me.  (Rod is blogging at The American Conservative these days, btw.  And he’s still a very good blogger, imo!)

I would love to hear from others – what is your personality type?  (If you don’t know your Myers Brigg’s Personality Type, there’s an online inventory you can use here.)
