Personality type to Political point of view relationship?

The Meyers-Briggs personality types have always intrigued me, now someone has done a comparison of liberal and conservative bloggers to determine if the is a link between personality type and political point of view. What they found is not that shocking, conservatives tend to be more oriented towards thinking when making decisions, liberals more feeling.

Here is a warning though, its not 100% accurate -- I am an ENFP. However my score in the dimension in question is very close, I am practically 50/50 between Thinking and Feeling.

UPDATE: Paul from Info Theory reminded me that this is not a positive link, it is a test of a difference in means. It is not to say if you are a conservative you are a T, it means you are more likely than not to be a T.
