A prediction came true!

Levels of familiarity with cognitive functions next to average magic level and standard deviation. Header: familiarity level, average, standard deviation, count. Level 1, average 21.0628, standard deviation 10.4882, count 2036. Level 2, average 20.6253, standard deviation 10.6633, count 16473. Level 3, average 20.8640, standard deviation 10.0318, count 6138. Level 4, average 27.3072, standard deviation 11.2591, count 831

When I made the new domains test, one thing I wanted to see was whether people who are too into typology answer questions more unrealistically or not. My method was to create something called a “magic level,” which corresponds to particularly unusual or unrealistic behavior or thinking (e.g. Ni stare), and then include a question asking the test taker about how familiar they are with the cognitive functions. In the chart above, we see the averages corresponding to the different levels of familiarity (“I know nothing about [the cognitive functions]” at level 1 to “I’m an expert at [the cognitive functions]!” at level 4).

And now, performing both an ANOVA and Hukey HSD test (at a 99% cf. level) on the data, we’ll find that these groups are mostly statistically significant! Professed experts score higher on magic level than people who know nothing about them. The two groups that were not statistically significant were between level 1 (know nothing) and level 2 (know some things).

Very interesting, don’t you think?
