Maybe this is a weird thing to wonder (as even all of us on the autism spectrum are different), but I wonder if those on the autism spectrum mostly fit into just a few Myers-Briggs types.
I would imagine most (if not all) of us are introverts as well as judgers (i.e. have a preference for structure and order). The middle two letters might be able to go either way but if I was a betting man I’d bet that a vast majority of us fit into those four personality types (INTJ, INFJ, ISTJ, ISFJ).
For me, I don’t fit into a neat little box. I strongly lean I and J, lean moderately N and, depending on the day and set of questions, I flip-flop between T and F. I guess that makes me an INXJ but overall about half the time I wind up an INTJ and the other half INFJ. I know, I’m just weird like that.
I should say that I don’t take the MBTI as gospel truth in any sense of the term. I don’t think we should let our type dictate what careers we pursue or anything, but it’s just interesting to me.
So to my fellow spectrumites, what is your Myers-Briggs type? Also just generally for my other blogging buddies, what’s yours? I’m truly curious.
