MBTI type of Barack Obama

. Auxiliary Fe of able to appeal everyone that he was the hope and savior of 2008. Nothing is wrong with that.

Find out about Barack Obama personality type

. Tertiary Ti shows up when he always bring up the same slogan when not much has change. Telling people that criticize him aren't progressive and is backwards.Information about Myers Briggs Type Indicator of Barack Obama. Inferior Ne is his inability to see the possibility that Trump will win 2016 race and fears that TPP and Obamacare his only legacy will be shot down. Also thought that Donald Trump will be the same goons like lame Romney and lame McCain and Hillary will breeze in 2016.Which of the 16 personality types is Barack Obama?. Still I have nothing against the guy.His persona is ENFJ (hope, change, corny heartfelt speeches). But I also tend to think his actual personality is too. There is something highly genuine about all his recorded speaking, on or off script. He obviously has a good feel for the audience. Don't mistake intelligence for T.Don't be fooled by the smile. Those are the unmistakable stubborn Si-dom eyes all government loonies seem to have. And a clear STJ as well as an advocate for traditional policies and standard political hogwash. ISTJ.Yeah, he crosses his arms way too often according to online photos.According to 5tar it's because a well developed Fe but I'm not buying it. Even in the photo is crossing arms like typical ENFJ. And dat smile. And the way he aged so fast, the grey hairs; an ENTP wouldn't be so affected like that.Fucking Obama cries too much for an ENTP. Explain that.He's an ENTP, who acted like an ENFJ while running for president. His campaign mangers knew that the voters would respond more to his Fe than his Ti. That's why you get people who mistake his type.That's just his speech writers. You can never judge a person's MBTI type based on speeches somebody else wrote. He's absolutely ENTP. His IQ isn't crazy high or anything. But he absolutely is a Ti user. He's got Fe, but he's not Fe dom.His speeches always makes me cry. Very likely NF.Definitely ENTP and not ENFJ. I don't know where people get the idea he is Fe-dom. I think that when President Obama ran for election in 2008, he presented himself to America as super Fe-inclined because Bush didn't seem to convey much emotion. But whenever you hear him speak off script, you realize immediately, his go-to functions are Ne and Ti.Idk, he's one of those people that could really be anything. He's probably some contradictory mbti type and enneagram type. Like 3w2 ISFP or 5w6 ENFJ or some shit like that"'He seems to be somebody who is at home with himself.'" http://www.nytimes.com/2016/07/03/us/politics/obama-after-dark-the-precious-hours-alone.html?smid=fb-nytimes&smtyp=curlike when they typed Neil patrick harris as ENTP because he used to like knock knock jokes and black humorObama is an xNFP for sure but celebritydicks typed him as ENTP without much senseWhy can't a Ti user be idealistic? ENTPs are often seen has the most idealistic T types. I can see why you think he might be a feeler since his dreams are extremely progressive, especially for US terms. But the reason why I think Obama is a Ti is because he makes "sense" okay. Fi would be more personal, vague. For example, many people could think he is Fi just because he is pro-gay marriage. But being pro-gay marriage doesn't necessarily mean someone is Fi. I would say it's more of a Fe use to be so, since it makes "sense" to respect "love" between people because it's simply what they want and what nature has given to them. I geuss you get what I am saying, lol. He defends his statements using logic and a lot of arguments. Gut feeling completely missing if you ask me. And by the way, I've read his direct environment perceive him as cold and arrogant, argumentative, especially when he needs to get personal. That would be more Fe than Fi I geuss. But I have to say, if he isn't an ENTP, he could be a professional ENFP in all probability. That would be amazing though."Trying to improve this world"... yes that sounds about right and I think summarizes the driving force throughout his life. Which is why he was very often drawn to ideological movements early in his life, and seems to have taken a while to develop into someone who appears as a pragmatist. I don't see in him any of the natural draw to impartiality expected of a NT. Yes, he has worked on putting on that image as it has been essential for him to overcome his ideological baggage, but who is he really and what motivates him?Obama is a frustrated ENTP trying to improve this world. His function are developed extremely well and he can behave like a really healthy ISFJ which he does talking to the media.Goddamn saem your head is deep in your ass. ISFJ is borderline retarded.ENTP is a laughable vote. I think he's an obvious ISFJ.Even if that was true (I'd say ENTJ are less rational because they prioritize achievment so much), that's no reason to think he's an ENTP. I think Bill Clinton is more of your ENTP type with a strong Fe. Most politicians are going to try to look like they care which leads to traits associated with Fe, but if you're talking cognitive functions, they are supposed to describe cognition rather than behavior. An ENTP's first judging instinct is to rationalize with an impartial sort of logic, even if they don't always judge as much due to Ne dominance. Obama doesn't seem to have this. Yes, he probably has Ne dominance, but keep in mind that auxiliary Fi in extroverts can come off like Fe, and is nothing like the dominant Fi of INFP's.Ti is not as rational and pragmatic as Te, and Secondary Ti is not primary Ti ... when you put Fe in the way ... well .... ENTP are the less "logical/rational" of the NTs. Some ENTP can even be very religious, into new age stuff and most of them are more into soft science/psychology than hard science or computer programming. Ne+Fe can be very charming and concinving.He's learned to put on his thinking face to try to put the public perception to rest about him being a hopeless idealist.No, he's ENFP with Ne and auxiliary Fi, which he has compromised due to his evolution as a politician. It's clear that one of his top 2 functions is a feeling function. He does not willingly and often use impersonal logic like an ENTP, and always had an idealist streak.There is his public persona which is very Fe, but with the few information we know of him (he likes to joke & brainstorm new ideas) and the way he acts on camera sometimes in more relaxed moments, I think he's more of an ENTP with Ne/Ti/Fe. ENFJ tend to be more serious, focused and intense with Fe/Ni/Te.Because he isn't exactly cerebral and seems to most naturally speak from the heart. He always had a reputation as an idealist up until his Presidency where he was in over his head.He doesn't like to use Te. I'd say Fi is his primary judging method.And Obama is a Te user, how?I'm still not seeing any Ti at all, let alone dominance.If you prefer Ti over Ne, you're an INTP unless there's clear behavioral extroversion or clear Fe > Si. As to Obama's Fe, of course it's going to appear more developed, he's a politician! INTPs would need to develop it to succeed in office, as politics entails a huge amount of networking and you won't get elected if you're not charismatic. You have to look at how Obama is behind-the-scenes, in which case he seems like an introvert. There shouldn't be such a landslide in favor of extroversion given that he appears to at the very least have Ti-Ne-Fe-Si which would be xNTP, not ENTP. I'm open to other arguments but why would an ENTP in a Je field have such unusually developed Ti that it makes him behaviorally introverted?He is a Ti subtype ENTP. Meaning he being an ENTP prefers Ti over Ne.Maybe ENFP then. Doesn't seem like a hard logic kind of guy as ENTP would be.He testify in his auto-biography to have been very laid back and disorganised. P all the way.He supposedly "overcompensated" for his P-tendencies sometime in his youth, thus why he looks J. He's also an introvert, surprisingly—his closest advisors believe so. An INTP with unusually developed Fe.Lol he's definitely a J. I have a hard time determining between ENFJ and ENTJ, but his earlier life seems to lean more to ENFJ.Just because someone has a large following ..does not make them an ENFJ. Just because someone invents things does not make them an ENTP.Just because someone has a large following ..does not make them an ENFJ. Just because someone invents things does not make them an ENTP.To be an extrovert does not mean that you appear extremely talkative and outgoing.. extroversion is where you get your energy from. Obama is a Ti subtype ENTPTo be an extrovert does not mean that you appear extremely talkative and outgoing.. extroversion is where you get your energy from. Obama is a Ti subtype ENTPThe Inspirer (ENFP), Although I can't say I was particularly inspired by him.So/Sx 7 social idealism and visionary with 3 in his tritype. Not all politicians are core 3s, Bill Clinton is so/sx 7 like Obama. And yes, INFJ."The problem I have with CT's rationale is they dismiss introversion right off the bat as if it's obvious, and then argue that Obama's an ENTP with unusually subdued Ne. I'm not convinced he's an extrovert (though I'm not certain of introversion either), and if his Ne is "subdued" but his Ti is obvious, doesn't that point to Ti-Ne rather than Ne-Ti?" Exactly. I don't even know where the ENTP typing comes from. Based on their own function logic, INTP works better. And like I'm said, I'm certain he's an introvert and the other three letters should be obvious. (The NT definitely is, most everyone agrees, and I for one think the P is even more obvious.)"Abraham Lincoln (a clear INTP) scored above average on extraversion, agreeableness, and conscientiousness" That is ridiculous. Lincoln was DEFINITELY low conscientiousness. In his younger days his agreeableness was pretty low too, though he was a bit more so after he grew and matured. I am also quite certain that he was introverted. Letters or functions, I think Lincoln is a straightforward INTP.CT has alot of wrong typings which I find odd because they are generally very good with typology knowledge. Much better than so many other sites which have brought typology to the same level as astrology. However they have got likes of John Lennon (ENFP) and Dylan (INFP) wrong in my opinion.And thus we don't determine MBTI type based on behaviour. Similarly letter by letter typing is wrong, the reason why Keirsey typed Lincoln ENTP for instance. So yeah!And thus we don't determine MBTI type based on behaviour. Similarly letter by letter typing us wrong, the reason why Keirsey typed Lincoln ENTP for instance. So yeah!I might add also that in research done by Steven J. Rubenzer and Thomas Faschinbauer, Abraham Lincoln (a clear INTP) scored above average on extraversion, agreeableness, and conscientiousness too. But is he an ENFJ? Not at all, not even close.The problem I have with CT's rationale is they dismiss introversion right off the bat as if it's obvious, and then argue that Obama's an ENTP with unusually subdued Ne. I'm not convinced he's an extrovert (though I'm not certain of introversion either), and if his Ne is "subdued" but his Ti is obvious, doesn't that point to Ti-Ne rather than Ne-Ti?I agree with CT and Keirsey (both use different methods) on ENTP. An atypical ENTP. High Ti and relatively well developed Fe while unusually repressed Ne. INTP is likely but less so than ENTP.Those who are interested in Jungian typology will agree on Ti for Obama which crosses off ENTJ and essentially ENFJ (due to inferior Ti)MBTI equivalence letter by letter is ENFJ and/or ENTJ.General consensus on above average conscientiousness and below average neuroticism. All agree on very high openness.Agreeableness is average. Individual research scores range from slightly below average to one score way above average.Actually there are several independent researches. Neither pegged him as an introvert. It's either ambivert or slightly extraverted."A research done by several Ph.Ds on his Big Five scores suggests he's above average on extraversion, conscientiousness and agreeableness. Which would point to ENFJ which is the most popular typing on the internet. Just wanted to share." I've seen it. They actually put him pretty much right in the middle on extroversion, somewhat BELOW average on agreeableness, and yes, above average on conscientiousness. That would actually point to xNTJ. Which is obviously nonsense. He is an INTP.Is it an expansion of the Rubenzer data I shared earlier? Or something different?That's interesting! Where'd you find that data?A research done by several Ph.Ds on his Big Five scores suggests he's above average on extraversion, conscientiousness and agreeableness. Which would point to ENFJ which is the most popular typing on the internet. Just wanted to share.He is INTP. Yes he's an introvert but you need to look behind his speeches. All presidents carry an Fe rhetoric to the public -- it's the nature of the job. That's the same reason people type Woodrow Wilson INFJ despite him being an INTJ. Obama, behind the scenes, is an intellectual, not a moralist.Lol, he is INFJ. Vision with a people focus, not someone constantly seeking novelty in the outer world, using impersonal understanding as support (ENTP). Went to one of his speeches, it lacked logic. Just lofty idealism and vision with the help of emotional effect that the whole crowd goes crazy for. It was crazy how he influenced the emotional atmosphere. His Fe is strong but he isn't extroverted. Susan Cain from Ted also considers him an introvert. She wrote "Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talkin". https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c0KYU2j0TM4The way I see it, the debate should only be between ENTP and INTP. If you look beyond his public image, it's clear that he is not any sort of F type. Between ENTP and INTP, most people who know him personally identify him as an introvert (to see for yourself, type in EITHER "Barack Obama introvert" (no quotes) or "Barack Obama extrovert" (no quotes) into Google and the first page is comprised entirely of articles arguing that he's an introvert or people who know him claiming he is). And his public image is an act, and could be very forced, so saying he's "too smooth at social interactions" to be an INTP isn't a strong argument. (And plus, that's entirely subjective). I think he's an INTP because no one who knows him personally (as far as I know) thinks he's an extrovert. And there's not enough evidence against INTP to make it less likely than ENTP.Also, haven't seen you offer any support of, you know, reliable, unbiased evidence proving there actually is such a thing as a Jungian function in the first place, let alone that everyone has four of them in a fixed order that dictates everything we do and say.I also see a lot of projection in the "you don't want your ideas challenge and if someone does they must be a fool" department. See, I DID provide actual reasoning for Obama being introverted. I didn't utter gibberish about "Fe." (And I disagree that Obama is "too smooth" by the way, seems rather awkward and clumsy to me.) I also clearly explained why I see Jung as inconsistent and unreliable. See, what I'm doing is challenging YOUR ideas and you cannot stand that. You can't stand to have the Jungian pseudoscience you hold so dearly questioned and so you defend it fiercely with no logical argument for it, attacking all those who dare question it and accuse them of being fools who don't understand it, who are guilty of the crimes you have committed. You are the one who refuses to respect my argument because you have your head so far up your own ass and think you have to "educate" all those who disagree with your Jungian theories. Guess what: There's enough room in this world for people to have different interpretations of personality type systems. You can have yours. I will continue to dismiss it and voic my criticisms because at this point I know enough about it to do so, but I will not attack you and call you clueless for continuing to believe it. Your behavior is indistinguishable from a cultist. I just hope you realize that, though I know you don't.Clueless, yes, a common fallacy, often committed by religious fundamentalists: Accuse your opponent of not knowing or understanding your argument because they disagree with it. I know Jung all too well, have all too many clues, enough to dismiss it.Jung's theories are dismissed as complete pseudoscience by literally every respected modern psychologist and researcher in the world. MBTI isn't exactly hard science anyway, but it works as a crude approximation of 80% of the big five and a quick and dirty way of grouing people based on personality. And just because Jung's functions claim to explain more and be more fixed and rigid does not make them correct. That violates Occam's razor. Religion claims to explain everything about everything, but that does not make it true. The more you attempt to explain with more certainty and dogmatism, leaving less room for flexibility, and four locked functions wired in everyone counts as that, the harder it is to be accurate in those claims.Lincoln was inferior Fe. Inferior Fe doesn't mean one is rude or completely at loss of social norms but suggests the person struggles. Obama is way too smooth at social interactions to be Fe-Dom. Even if typing sites get some of their typings wrong. They do provide a reasoning while you are not. You are not taking on a debate directly. You are shutting all the room for discussion. Yoy don't accept this, you don't accept that. You don't want your ideas challenged and if someone does he must be a fool. Obama may or may not test as an introvert on a Big5 or OCEAN test but not on any Jungian test. MBTI is impaired if you score 49 on I/E dichotomy you're an introvert if 51 you're an extravert. Please make your case. Don't make a fool out of yourself by rejection of the basis of all Jungian Personality type tests including MBTI (in essence) i.e. Jungian Cognitive Functions. Jung's works are hard and absurd at time yes but at same time extremely insightful and profound but I wouldn't be surprised that you reject them just because you are clueless.MBTI both helped and made a mess of Jung's work. MBTI test all too crude. A single person can come out as several types on different tests. Its outdated while Jung's theories aren't. They are still paramount to modern researchers. You are not providing any reasoning behind your statements. You are just passing statements. Are implying Congnitive functions mean nothing?Keep talking buddy. Keep talking. You can talk about your "Fe inferiors" all you want and "Jungian" this, Jungian that. Carl Jung was frankly a quack. Meyers and Briggs salvaged his ideas and made them into a logical system that can actually be used and tested for with decent reliability. The test is done the way it is for a reason. Obama would test as an introvert. Therefore he is an introvert. The test is the ends to its own mean. There's no secret part of his brain that is wired so that he is actually an ENTP who just happens to act like an INTP. And considering Abraham Lincoln is commonly accepted as INTP, I have no idea why you are so opposed to the suggestion anyway. Are you saying Lincoln couldn't handle his "inferior Fe?" Are you saying it would be impossible for an INTP to "develop" it? You can pick cherries and go down rabbit holes all day and prove absolutely nothing. Based on the best of my knowledge, Obama prefers introversion and is therefore INTP. I don't drink the Celebrity Types, Keirsey, etc. Kool-Aid and have no interest in what these supposed "authorities on the subject of pseudoscientific personality believe. You can if you like.Behavioural introversion or the general concept of introvert being soft spoken and not a talker is only a small part of Jungian introversion but I'm sure you know that. Also it doesn't work like this: Mr. A is an ENTP. Oh but I heard he doesn't talk that much. I reckon he was an INTP afterall. No! Different dominant functions make as much difference as different inferior functions. The functions stack change when you go from ENTP to INTP. While there are very evident similarities, the style and personality changes alot. ENTP is the most fathomable choice for Obama. His Fe is very fair and not inferior at all.75% right, but Obama is not only an introvert, but a strong introvert. Take it from somebody who knows somebody in Congress who knows him. I was kind of shocked at first too, but it actually made perfect sense given all the pauses and hesitations in his manner of speaking. His extroversion always felt forced and he had a tendency to be rather dry. INTP.
