Here's the results of my survey so far:

Type Qty. Type of writing enjoyed:

ENFP 1 Order out of chaos
XNFP 2 Editing, marketing, PR
ENFJ 1 Editing
INFJ 6 Writing from scratch, editing
NF total = 10

ENTJ 5 Evolving software, instructional design
INTP Writing for programmers, design docs
NT total = 9

ESTJ 3 Organizing information, user & service manuals
ISTJ 5 Explainging concepts, indexing
ST total = 8

ISFJ 1 Integrated circuits design
SF total = 1

XXTP 1 trucking industry duribility test

ENXP 1 OS internals
Total responses = 30

The Extroverts have 11, the introverts have 16. There are 2 X (equal extrovert & introvert). The general population is 50/50. This result makes sense because
we have to be extroverted to gather information, but introverted to concentrate & write. Introverts are better at concentration than extrovert.

The NF and NT groups have the majority of results with 19 out of 30 responses. This makes sense because the N group are the creative people. They represent 20% of the general population. The N's in the survey tend to like creative work. The S's are more technical and detail-oriented than the N's.

There are 11 F's vs. 18 T's. F's are the feeling people who care about the needs
of others (isn't that one of the things that's great about the profession!), while the
T's are the analytical, fact oriented people. F's do well at caring for the needs of end users.

There are 7 P's vs. 23 J's. The perceivers are the people who like to keep options open, keep looking for more facts, like long-term projects. The J's are very
decisive, are comfortable with deadlines, like to bring an end to things as soon
as possible. J's see black and white, while P's are more comforatble with
shades of gray.

The largest groups were INFJ=6, ENTJ=5, and ISTJ=5. INFJ is known as the most common writing personality profile. This held true in this survey by a slim margin
probably because TW is a technical profession. INFJ's are more commonly
creative writers.

Thanks to all who responded. I hope you find this as interesting as I did.
