What are MBTI Statistics by Gender?

In this article, I will share with you the latest statistics for MBTI types by males and females in the population that was published in the 2018 MBTI Manual.

I had recently wrote a post on MBTI Statistics, but those were aggregated from data from the 1970s to 2002, so these are much more recent stats.

In this post, you will learn the estimated frequencies of psychological type and gender differences in the general population. The sample size for this was very large for (7,771) men and women (9,002), which makes it a great resource for understanding personality types and personality traits.
