Since I lack of academic formation please be tolerant if I write something not correct.

As you know MBTI test is based on 4 personality dimension (E/I, S/N, T/F, J/P) each of which can assume two possible value (I think the name is trait) for a total of 16 clusters. link

Some searches shows difference of psychology dealing with the gender (see for example gender roles and wikipedia Sex differences in human psychology). This can intuitively refer to education, culture, hormonal difference and so on.

According to the stereotype, many women are more judging than men.

Does any experimental test proves the prevalence of Judging is higher in women compared to men?

According to the following document there is a prevalence of the Judging trait most of women seems to be Judging.

the stereotype that females prefer routines, plans and outlines is largely justified; the majority fall into the judging category. It may come as a surprise, however, that the majority of boys (about 52-58 percent) are judging types as well.


However a stronger difference, correlated to gender, from MBTI is about other traits (dimension?).
