Even though this thread is 13 years old (!), it's still interesting and relevant. I read results of a study on retirement preparedness and echoed the results here: INTP, INTP and ISTJ had the most saved for retirement. Makes total sense. As Introverts (I'm INTP preference) we tend to focus more on intrinsic matters. We're not motivated by external displays of wealth, for example, nor a desire to keep up with the Jones'. As Ts we make decisions based on logic and reason -- useful when investing, so we don't do things like sell in a panic when the market takes a dive. The N tends to be future-oriented, good for long term planning. The ISTJ preference is also a planner type. My ex is ISTJ and retired at 58, and I plan to retire at 57.

I am INFP. The F surprised me most but it is by no means pegged.

I sometimes think this isn't the ER forum, but the INTJ/INTP forum.

Five Factor Test

There’s a newer, and I’ve heard now more commonly used, personality test.

I think we discussed MB more recently than 13 years ago but finding the thread feels like w*rk.

At one time or another, I have tested as every MBTI letter except "S."

I remember that once Myers Brigg was all the rage at mega corp. They sent us all to classes and handed out books. My copy is gathering dust somewhere as I am a pack rat to some degree. Have no idea what personality type covers that. I tested right on the border between INFP and INTP at the time. I do recall those two were considered the least likely to succeed in the corporate environment, with INFP being the worst. I was sort of proud of that.
