I've been meaning to expand the statistics system on the test for a
while now (rewrite it in Python instead of the awful Perl and make
it more modular) The personality types are stored but not used in
any of the current reports.

Here are some stats that I got by running a couple of SQL queries by
hand:

  Bartle types:    Exp  Soc  Ach  Kil
  MBTI

  E                664  457  188  151
  I               1716  933  551  372
                  2.58 2.04 2.93 2.46                
 
  S                698  545  351  347
  N               1890 1231  615  442
                  2.70 2.25 1.75 1.27

  T               1389  679  508  395
  F                927  832  297  173
                  1.49 1.22 1.71 2.28

  J               1004  586  429  278
  P               1184  828  343  267
                  1.17 1.41 1.25 1.04


I.e. For the Explorers who answered, 664 were Extroverted and 1716
were Introverted -- 2.58 as many in the larger group as the smaller.

Numbers may not add up across types -- this was just a series of
quick SQL queries. Out of 6405 people that entered something in that
input field, only 4634 entered something that matches (case
insensitively) the regexp [ei][sn][tf][jp]. Some entered their
Bartle 3-letter type, some entered only NF / NT / SJ, some even
apparently random 4 digit numbers. One individual typed in "kill".

The most obvious piece of data is that socialisers are least likely
to be Introverted (but even among the Socialisers only 1/3 are
Extroverted) and Achievers the most. I'll let others come up with
more; I have some statistics code to write :)

  
  Some more numbers: most popular combinations:
  
    intj  |   875
    intp  |   815
    infp  |   693
    enfp  |   371
    infj  |   334
    istj  |   312
  
  among admins:
  
    intj  |   247
    intp  |   221
    infp  |   213
    enfp  |    95
    infj  |    88
    entp  |    86
   
  among females:
  
    infp  |   168
    intj  |   150
    intp  |   130
    infj  |   111
    enfp  |   109
    enfj  |    57
  
  among males:
   
    intj  |   709
    intp  |   677
    infp  |   514
    istj  |   263
    enfp  |   252
    entp  |   222

(female + male != total, since you can also not reveal your gender)
