Funny that as an INFP I never cared about making a lot of money anyways.

I agree with Blake ^. I am an INFJ Idealist and money has never been much of an object for me. I want enough to sustain me with basic essentials but that is about all I need. I am more concerned with the needs of others and am gratified with helping others make it to the top. From day one I college I told people " I want to make a difference in the world and I want my work to mean something, even if it means taking a lower paying Job"...Makes sense why INFJ Idealists don't make as much.

Did you check at all how this information was gathered? Was it a "study" or just a poll on a website? Two holes seem to exist: 1) how can all 16 types be well above the national median household income? and... 2) since it shows the median HOUSEHOLD income, many of these statistics reveal the income of two personality types. It could very well be that an ENTJ could be married to a ESFJ. How does it count both? I'm concerned by the usage of the term "study."
