Always banging his podium. Inferior Se and an obvious Fe user, so INFJ.People can be objective in their opinions and compassionate at the same time. There is a balance that exists between the two.

MBTI type of Bernie Sanders

. Bernie IMO is just a more compassionate, people-oriented ENTJ.Idk how someone could say he's not an NFHe's definitely ISFP.

Find out about Bernie Sanders personality type

. Strong Fi, coupled with Se. ISFPs often get confused with XNTJ types because they share all the same functions, but his he doesn't show strong Te.Information about Myers Briggs Type Indicator of Bernie Sanders. Fi-Se in him is very obvious, however.I recommend comparing pictures of Sanders's (ENFP) earnest, warm smile with the smiles of any ENTJs and INTJs.Which of the 16 personality types is Bernie Sanders?. I also remember reading an analysis of the body language of all the candidates, and it said that Sanders didn't smile as often as the others, but he was the only one who had perfectly earnest smiles. I think the bottom line is that in Sanders Fi always wins out over Te. If he was more Te (practical, result-oriented), he would - as a politician - long have learned to smile as much as he can.I don't know that much about him, so when I first heard INTJ and some arguments, I thought it sounded sensible, but in light of the information under - about having such an informal relationship with his son, etc. - I have a really, really hard time accepting INTJ/ENTJ, which makes me go back to my original intuition. I think he is probably an incredibly serious Type 1 ENFP. His arguing style is very emotional (Fi). I seriously get teary-eyed watching some of his videos. You'll also find plenty of amazing Fi-Te outbursts, like when a conservative refers to "homos in the military" and Sanders just EXPLODES. He's also like ridiculously principled and stubborn (Fi). There's videos from 20 years back on YouTube where he is screaming all these really idealistic things at the audience and everyone is watching him like this huge weirdo. It may be easy to forget that before he was a presidential candidate in his 70s (!!!), he spent like 50 years standing up for stuff nobody else believes in. I just can't help but think that an ENTJ/INTJ would have taken a more practical and compromising style with politics. The reason he may be taken as an ENTJ/INTJ is because he doesn't "compromise" though, so he obviously sounds more logical than most other politicians. As a politician, he must also be very heavy on Te, and like Obama (ENTP) - it's probably not a good idea to show too much of your Ne. Also CelebrityTypes guy is INTJ and probably likes Bernie Sanders a lot. :P Final note: Looking at an older interview,, I think he has that Inferior Si-like, messy posture. Even when otherwise being perfectly still, his shoulders are moving slightly back and forth. He just can't sit still.He's also a massive cuck, so there's that. Not exactly living up to the ENTJ ideal of the alpha male who commands respect. His only biological son calls him 'the Bernster.' “I’ve never called him Bernie. And I never have called him Dad. Even when I was six years old, I thought it was childish. He was a friend, not an authoritarian.” You can't make this shit up.! Hold everything. I've just found conclusive evidence that Bernie is NOT an ENTJ. In fact, he lived a rather bummy lifestyle for most of his adult life. Read: you mean my ISTJ father's Fe, yes i am talking about the strength of his shadow function.ISTJ has Fi...unless you're talking Shadow functions.ENTJ Bernie vs. ESTJ Hillary.Good points in favour of INTJ though I just can't see repressed Se. Atleast his campaign image looks like a Te bulldozer accompanied by Ni vision. I'm slightly tilted on ENTJ here.This dude is old so even *if* his Fi is inferior, it would still be very developed. I don't question the INTJ typing though, even if I don't agree with him being behaviorally introverted.A good cognitive functions argument has already been made for INTJ and I don't dispute it... But what I don't understand is why so many people think he's *behaviorally* introverted. Ironically enough, it's Celebrity Types (who claim not to go off of behavior) who seem to have taken the behaviorist approach with him.For Enneagram, I voted for 1w2 so/sx!INTJ. Determined Ni vision + fact-based reasoning Te. He is old enough to have reasonable amount of control on all four functions, but I see him as having a very good Fi. His visceral visionary attitude is too strong not to be an Ni-dom. INTJ rather than ENTJ.Yes, just look at his hair (jk). But what really sells me is his devotion to ideology over pragmatism, and how in the past he was completely uncompromising and had to basically be advised to know how to better succeed in politics. That is why he would also be Sp/Sx I think. He has that colder exterior and bluntness, and uncompromising attitude which.Bad typing by Celebrity Types: inferior Se makes way more since than inferior Fi. INTJ not ENTJ.Kanye is clearly ISFJ though. He has a good hold of his inferior Ne and intentionally represses his Si, which is why he can appear as an intuitive and even an extrovert.* why are missing all the evidence of Bernie crusading for his ideals?@karlson. Two mistakes. First, in Jungian definition of introversion & extroversion an INTJ can technically be very vocal and engaging while an ENTJ can be reclusive. Second, Bernie Sanders is running for president. What do you expect him to do? Sit at home and write books? Also in pure cognitive functional approach why do you see Te above Ni when I have pointed out the tenacity of Bernie for three decades now holding the same ideals for all that period till now. Facing extraordinary odds he is reluctant to change his stance. What ENTJ would do that? Also where do you see inferior Fi in him. Inferior Fi in ENTJs manifest as alienation of personal ideals from their work? Why are missing Bernie crusading for his ideals? No matter what approach you take INTJ is the best fit. So consider these reasoning before you jump on me.Just scroll a little bit below to read what impeccable wrote. Much better arguments than "always meeting people and not taking any time off from work". Read the Mother Jones article "How Bernie Learned to be a Real Politician", rather than looking at the product of many years of failure.Why is he introverted? Does anyone have a particular reason or is he introverted by default? He is always meeting people and not taking any time off from work. He doesn't shy away from any form of interaction. He will talk to anyone and everyone whenever! @ impeccable, wrong! He is not an INTJ idealist. He is fully aware of his opposition and he is very goal oriented in his preference. His is not a theoretical far fetched idea of socialism. He points to working and flourishing Scandinavian countries for his vision. So again, what introversion is he exactly portraying. @scotty, sure! I'd be your sheep instead of being CT's sheep because that would be more objective. Your typing skills suck balls but kudos to your confidence. I believe he is either an ENTJ or an ESTJ.ENTJ just because I want to.I am pretty sure Sanders in an INTJ. His tenacity is more in line with INTJs than ENTJs. An ENTJ with similar ideology will adapt to situations to make his goals achievable whereas Sanders is dead set on his vision for decades now, which points to dominant Ni. Its also very hard to see inferior Fi in him given his attachment to the ideals of socialist democracy. And also despite Sanders' drive for pragmatism, his goals are still bit of a stretch in today's political atmosphere. An ENTJ would be more aware of his limitations while an INTJ would believe in his mission more fiercely. All in all INTJ makes perfect sense. What doesn't make sense is INTP. Yes Ti is associated with consistency of principles and in application of logic but it isn't particularly linked to such tenacity and grand scheming as Sanders' Ni has.Apparently being principled and consistent on here means you're an INTP (also see Ron Paul). I don't really get it but maybe someone can explain better.I would say he comes across as very INTJ like and probably has well developed Fi. I am open to an INTP argument though.Can't wait for the sheep to start piling in :(Also I am amazed at all these INTP votes. Didn't expect this at all. I was certain there would be consensus on INTJ here.CT doesn't use behavioral I/E as outlined in their methodology chart comparison. They have argued for a workaholic Te-Dom and I can get behind it but right now I'm okay with INTJ. I would give it some more time to agree or disagree with their assertion.CT have typed Sanders as an ENTJ. It's interesting, but I disagree with him as an extrovert. However, this does solidify my position of him as an INTJAnd I'm leaning toward INTP really.For someone who isn't an American I would like to see him in the White House. Seems like the only sane person in the race who just might be good for the world too.I didnt argue for INTJ at all. An INTP would have definitive views because they have Ti to clarify their views and Si to retain their views for a long time . INTJ views change with changing atmosphere. Sanders is an INTP. Like it or not.You've pretty much just argued for INTJ (who said they can't be principled, anyway?). INTP look and try to understand the big picture but tend not to have as definitive views on what it actually is, which is why INTP are more likely to change their mind when provided with solid logical arguments. And in Sanders's mind, what he has done *has* been efficient to his goals. His main goal appears to be to spread his ideology, not to hold a high office yet he's actually been extremely successful in both.Pardon my grammar. English isnt my thing.Lol. INTPs dont look for big picture? He has been a quite force for civil rights and a voice against income inequality for decades. He is quite mellow and only gets frustrated when the other person is unreasonable. His principles have been consistent for decades. Hr didnt attempt for an efficiency way of implementing his principles. Mostly he has been an activist for equality with no drive for power. I think he is an INTP.Well of the things with votes, I certainly can't see him being INFJ. He tells things directly like he sees them and doesn't mince words, sometimes coming off as abrasive. He also shows surprisingly little interest in bridging the gap between like-minded people. These are traits that just aren't exhibited by strong Fe-users. I don't think he's an INTP either. He looks from a big-picture view and then uses structured arguments branching from it. That's top-down Ni-Te, rather than bottom-up Ti-Ne.This isn't an appropriate place for a political debate.Who wants Bernie to win? I am very excited with the prospect of a real progressive leftist in the race. I am undecided on the vote thoug . Please guys start a discussion here. Share some material.And similarly for INTJ. I think there is room for debate here.I would like to hear opinions regarding him being an INTP.Voted INTP. Seems very principled and consistent in his ideology.I voted 1w2 on the Enneagram but I can also see him as a 5w4. Though, I don't think he would be in politics as a 5w4.Pretty sure he's an INTJ - a very blunt and determined visionary
