Most test takers did not know their MBTI type as shown by the "didn't know" numbers.    These results are limited to some degree by that fact.    While significant scoring differences across the sixteen types are apparent here, users who knew their Myers Briggs type tended to score higher than the majority of users who didn't know their type.    In the future I will try to directly link actual personality test scores and intelligence test results.
