A study which prompted me to create this thread was done on the Paragon website a while back in which a poll was done to see if there was a "raider personality" (based upon the Carl Jung and Isabel Briggs Myers typology), and from a total of 793 respondents, the results were quite clear.
In every category INTJ was the prevailing personality by nearly double that of the second most. Everything from their class, raid style (elite, hardcore, "casual"), server location, faction, etc. And within the guild of Paragon, INTJ was five times more prevalent than any other.
Now, the most interesting part of these results is that the personality type INTJ is the most "rare" in that it only encompasses, apparently, 2% of the total population.

I've decided to create this thread, purely out of curiosity, to see whether or not there are any correlations between personality types and class choice, or even if there is a more frequent type among the general populous of WoW. (however, I am aware that class mechanics heavily weigh into the choice of a chosen class. If you'd like, post the class of your first toon, which is more likely to be of a genuine indication)
Follow the link below to fill out the questionnaire and merely post your indicated type, for instance "ENFJ". No need to post the percentages. Thanks!
If there is a decent number of responses I'll post the data.

Wow, That's surprisingly accurate. Reading the description, I found myself going, "yes, yes, mmhmm, yes, yes..."
I think the only thing that I do in WoW that does not fit my personality type is that I raid 25s instead of 10s. Usually I prefer smaller groups, in real life and in WoW.

Interesting. INTJ. The mastermind.
With my personality being most similar to Isaac Newton, Niels Bohr, C. G. Jung, Michel de Montaigne, Michel Nostradamus, and Ada Lovelace. I'm okay with this list. Especially because of my personal love of Jung's work.
Also, I play a DK because i love the fast paced feel and the extreme difference in skill level and outcome. You always know which DK is terrible and which one took careful time to plan out and properly execute their strikes to give themselves the least downtime and maximize rune efficiency.

INTJs are the most common type online, it's not that surprising when you think about it.
INFJ male, Warlock has always been my main. Played Paladin and DK tanks at 80, Resto Druid at 80 and 85 and playing a lot of my PvP Disc Priest atm gearing up. I'd like to raid hardcore but can't get in a good guild so haven't raided since I got the 10m ICC Drake.
Many of these bothered me for their yes or no format, but I did my best to find a way to answer. It claims I am: INFP
Also: I frequently was preoccupied with recognizing how my answers would be correlated with other answers and with how I could shape the answers into any number of different outcomes.

I got INTP. Although, most of my answers were straight "noes", and the quiz only reminded me that I am an incredibly uncomplicated person. . .
Which may be for the best.
I fall into the lower 9% of the significant groups among the paladins, so I guess I'm at home.

"Where's the party?" ESFPs love people, excitement, telling stories and having fun. The spontaneous, impulsive nature of this type is almost always entertaining. And ESFPs love to entertain -- on stage, at work, and/or at home. Social gatherings are an energy boost to these "people" people.
Yup, that's me. Pretty uncanny, really. Heck, ask people in my guild, I'm always cracking jokes, entertaining, and doing all sorts of crazy stuff.

Fun thanks for sharing!
INFP which they say is idealist portrait of the healer. I have a priest druid and shaman healer (priest main) and it's my fav role in the game. Pretty cool!
INFJ... took it again later in the day and changed probably about 3 answers with more though. Put my J to a 1 so i guess I'm pretty in between.
