Altrustic person? pushed his talents to change the computing world? Your thinking of steve jobs. Bill Gates had a Te way of forward looking vision to change the world and valued effeciency.He could have J traits now that he's older but he's a true INTP.INTJs don't want him.

MBTI type of Bill Gates

. So what? He is introverted and judging no matter what way you look at it.Wealth and power? I think he's more an altruistic person.

Find out about Bill Gates personality type

. And he pushed his talent to the max to change the world of computing. More respekt pls.Information about Myers Briggs Type Indicator of Bill Gates.@Bonita Being into computers does not make him INTP. Why is he in science section?.Which of the 16 personality types is Bill Gates?. Bill gates is reported as a aggresive,pragmatic businessman who seeked wealth and power.@scotty You trolling? Even the INTJs agree he's INTP lol https://intjforum.com/topic/52484-final-verdict-bill-gates-typeHe had a pretty ENTJ vision. Dominantion,planning and implementing. ENTJ don't like going out with freinds etc they would perfer to work. Bill Gates loves to talk in conference and interviews he has a big smile on his face speaking to people. He is a very aggresive and clever businessman. Bill gates always had a plan to earm money and power.It's better to fail at typing according to Bonita, than get things wrong. He's so INTJ.If you fail typing Gates as INTP, you should quit MBTI. Or quit voting. So easy.Outlook keeps crashing. Help me!!!!Gates is known for running his charity foundation in an extremely Te way, and I don't think he's an extrovert so INTJ vote it is.So every successful man is ENTJ? He's an INTP who turned out to be successful because of his outstanding and innate talent in a mega ultra specialized field. The rest is history. Got it?Clear example of Ni-Te directness, drive and strategic mind.There's not even room for questioning her, he and Allen are perfect depictions of Te vs. Ti, Ni vs. Ne.INTP? Have you read his biography? It is a clear example of Ni-Te, I do not see where it Ne ... Just because he's a genius he automatically has to be stereotyped as INTP? INTP's could not get where he arrived with such mastery and objectivism.Obvius INTJINTP? Have you read his biography? It is a clear example of Ni-Te, I do not see where it Ne ... Just because he's a genius he automatically has to be stereotyped as INTP? INTP's could not get where he arrived with such mastery and objectivism.Obvius INTJINTP? Have you read his biography? It is a clear example of Ni-Te, I do not see where it Ne ... Just because he's a genius he automatically has to be stereotyped as INTP? INTP's could not get where he arrived with such mastery and objectivism.Obvius INTJAnd I'm 100% sure he's INTP.Gates mainly looked at existing ideas like BASIC and GUI and found new practical uses for them, and was determined to make those new uses a reality.Oh my god. Who said INTJs can't have great programming skills or invent programming languages? Anyway, Gates always tried to look ahead and see where things would go in the future, and work on making it happen. Such was the case with Altair BASIC as well. In the Gates/Allen relationship, Gates more or less provided the direction (Ni) while Allen provided the creativity (Ne). And Gates' Te first manifested as an intense drive and competitiveness, which later evolved into his business maneuvering later in life. And if you think only Ne can generate ideas, go have a word with Elon Musk and Nikola Tesla. And a highly introverted INTJ's intensity is inside their head, so you won't see it in their demeanor but it will reveal itself in their actions.He doesn't have the intensity of INTJs either.And Ne is not only curiosity but also a problem solver since it's a generator of ideas. Programming is emulation, and also being good and quick at solving problems (over and over) thanks to those original ideas.Excelling at programming is Ti-dom. He invented a language, operative systems, etc. Go back to his roots.Lol whoever voted ENTP is nuts. Where is his Ne?But you see, Bill Gates' "nerd" behavior is not the behavior of INTP nerds. Does that make it clearer? More specifically, where is his Ne? He not have the "curiosity curiosity's sake". He was intent on applying his curiosity to productivity. There is a reason why CelebrityTypes and other people type him as ENTJ and that is because his Te is clear, but he is also not an extrovert. Nerd, and INTJ.Touchy. It's better to type "people" when they're young because "people" throughout the years balance all their functions out. Gates doesn't look like an INTP anymore but he is indeed one.The "archetypal nerd" that is INTP has a lot of characteristics that Bill Gates does not have. Rather than argue about what the type is of "nerds", maybe you should try typing everyone as people.And body language is Introverted.Archetypal nerd is INTP not INTJ. So he's INTP.Regardless of types, I can definitely see him as strong Te user.The fact that "he would dedicate so much time to one topic from an early age (with little to no regard for social life, sorry he's an extreme I)" does point to INTJ over INTP or ENTJ. Vote changed from ENTJ to INTJ.With Gates, I see Te, Ti, and Ni. He actually makes some sense as an INTP if you take out his focused behavior geared to productivity rather than theoretical innovations. Steve Wozniak is the INTP of INTPs.I think the ENTJ voters either are either CelebrityTypes drones or see more Te than Ni. I can understand where the latter is coming from, but I'd rather type an introvert as an introvert.Also Gates is not an E at all. He is either an INTP or INTJ.I have trouble seeing an ENTJ saying this: “I choose a lazy person to do a hard job. Because a lazy person will find an easy way to do it.”Stereotypical INTJ's are nerds, and stereotypical INTP's are geeks. Nuff said. And btw I think Bill Gates is a definite INTJ based on the arguments presented. I would't believe ENTJ or INTP for a second.Okay the Epic Rap Battles of History caricature probably leans towards INTJ using his Te a lot.Yes INTPs are usually seen as the biggest nerds I know a couple of ESTJs that are nerds so you can't go off nerdiness, Bill seems more INTJ than anything else though. His caricature in Epic Rap Battles of History is more ENTJ caricature but I believe the real man was a lot more reserved than that and his Fi doesn't seem inferior.I don't know. At the time I thought INTJs were seen (incorrectly mind you) as more "stereotypical nerds" than INTPs, but maybe not. Further research shows that online forums that relish in stereotypes seem to think of INTPs as being bigger nerds, and INTJs second in badassery only to ISTP. That's refreshing, and makes sense considering people type Batman as INTJ lol. Still, Gates is INTJ because he is a successful, driven, assertive businessman and mastermind. Keirsey has this one right.And the Bill Gates form of nerd is more of a stereotypical INTJ. INTP-stereotype nerds are way more distracted by shiny objects and seen as severe underachievers. But I wouldn't be typing off of stereotypes.Lol, both INT types are stereotypical nerds, just in a different way. But yeah he's probably a J based on the way he would dedicate so much time to one topic from an early age (with little to no regard for social life, sorry he's an extreme I).I wouldn't so much say hateful as I would easily annoyed and frustrated and openly showing it, which seems to fit Bill too.INTJ seems reasonable, it's hard to see if he's Te over Ni or Ni over Te but he seems more introverted.You're right. He's an INTJ, changing my vote. Still not an ENTJ. Also I hope no one typed him as INTP just because he's a nerd because INTJs are even bigger nerds stereotype-wise.He's either INTP or INTJ. How does he get ENTJ votes? There is nothing extroverted about him.Some people are dumb enough to think about stereotypes when deciding about someones type. CEO must be ENTJ.. this is ridiculous ..he doesn't even have a Te facehttp://quoteinvestigator.com/2014/02/26/lazy-job/ If you take quotes from people who aren't Bill Gates, attribute those quotes to Bill Gates, and then derive his personality type from those quotes, then yeah, INTP absolutely makes sense as a type for him.INTP. I wouldn't listen to Celebrity Types saying otherwise.The idea that Bill Gates is an ENTJ is just absurd, the kind of nonsense that only Celebrity Types could conceive of. If Bill Gates is not an introvert I will eat my hand. What, he runs a business and therefore is ENTJ? Huh? What kind of ENTJ would say "I choose a lazy person to do a hard job. Because a lazy person will find an easy way to do it." Those are simply the words of an INTP, and of the handful of other types which might conceivably say them, ENTJ is absolutely not one of them. And since they are Bill Gates's words, and he is clearly an INT, he is an INTP.
