Yeah I've heard the ESFP argument from Socionics freaks before, I don't buy it either. Here's what I found on Wikipedia: "He was an innovator in using the financial, bureaucratic, and diplomatic resources of France. He could rapidly dictate a series of complex commands to his subordinates, keeping in mind where major units were expected to be at each future point, and like a chess master, "seeing" the best plays moves ahead. Napoleon maintained strict, efficient work habits, prioritizing what needed to be done.

MBTI type of Napoleon Bonaparte

.For some reason, the Socionics functions seem like scrambled versions of the MBTI functions: Socionics Se = MBTI Te Socionics Si = MBTI Se Socionics Fi = MBTI Si Socionics Fe = MBTI Fi Socionics Ti = MBTI Ni Socionics Te = Same Socionics Ne = Same Socionics Ni = N/AThe only other person I know of who typed Napoleon as ESFP was Aushra Augusta, the founder of Socionics.I don't know how we can arrive to type Hannibal as a Ni dom (aka the worst strategist the world ever had, the guy all in tactics) and Napoleon as a Ni inf - not only a tactician but also a brillant strategist, with all the cohesive way he orientated his politic and his battles towards concrete goals and a clear vision.

.In fact his "introverted" behavior when he was young is due to social exclusion. One should have in mind the context, a young and poor Corsican put in an aristocratic military school away from his family with all the tension (even xenophobia) between French and Corsican (Corsica became part of France only one year before Napoleon's birth).Information about Myers Briggs Type Indicator of Napoleon Bonaparte. With all the bad treatment he had (other youngsters mocking his french, his appearance etc), the only option he had left was to withdraw himself in libraries to study. The French Revolution was his chance, all the social limitation France knew before were abolish (at least a great part of them because Napoleon worked pretty hard on this field, so that people could only be valued by competence, not by some social class).Which of the 16 personality types is Napoleon Bonaparte?. And many of the changes he brought are until now present in many societies.Haha, that sounds so ridiculously Te-dom, lol. I can't see an ESFP acting like that, they're generally chill. Also, there's no way this guy was Ni inferior. He didn't just conquered a bunch of countries, he changed the face of Europe. In this way he was very much like Caesar and unlike many other conquerers in history, he changed the political systems of the places conquered, not just conquered them. Te-Se makes allot of sense, it's quite a turbulent combination.Plus, like someone said below he had issues with socializing when he was young, and if anything ESFP are one the most socially adaptable types, specially when young. ENTJs on the other hand might not know how to be laid-back or relate to other children which might lead to behavioral introversion, until they develop their social skills enough.Also, if he has both characteristics of INTJ and of ESFP, it would make more sense that he was ENTJ, since they can share characteristics of both types, more INTJ-ish when in touch Ni, more ESFP-ish when in touch with Se.Can't see an young ESFP dedicating himself to study over socializing, it's just not in their nature.At his school as a child, each student was given a plot of yard to study in. He took over his neighboring yards, built a fence around them, and fought off the other boys with a shovel.Caesar: ENTJ Napoleon: ESFP Hannibal: INTJESFP, reason: (Compare him to the ENTJ Caesar) Emotionally turbulent (ex. smashing the kig of austria's tea set shouting "THIS WILL BE YOUR EMPIRE" pissed of Se-Fi with uncontroled Te, also can be seen in his battle tactics which were strong Te yes, but in a "all of nothing" Se manner. Notice how the paintings of him focus on sensory expression (compare the "crossing of the alps" paintings).*I see him more as an ENTJ because it seems Se was very strong with himAs for an INTJ military leader in history, it would compared to Napoleon, someone who fought fewer battles, in less varied conditions, but choose them very well for the maximum strategic result. I don't know the name of that person, but that would be the general direction to look for one.As for behavioral introversion in childhood, I can see this with an ENTJ if they haven't developed their charisma or some kind of social subtility.The Te-Ni combination is a very forceful one, and without a certain level of social subtility that one develops with age, it may not play too well in the social scene, as it can create an overtly blunt, domineering, and well, lacking in subtlety individual.I think you could compare him with Twyin from Game of Thrones, people say he's INTJ because he lacks in sociability, but there's quite an important factor that makes him ENTJ over INTJ: his decision making process is quick, giving several commands at a time, it has an over-view, but also needs immediate results.About Napoleon:''He could rapidly dictate a series of complex commands to his subordinates, keeping in mind where major units were expected to be at each future point'' .That is Te over Ni. Ni over Te is a slower and more patient process, but also with a greater foresight.It seems than for Napolean, there was a conflict between a long term fore-sight and a more risky one, needing more immediate results, which sounds like Ni and Se being quite close together. So overall, his leadership style seemed Te over Ni backed up with Se.I see him more as an ENTJ, but it seems that Se was very strong with him.He was very in on the battlefield, an INTJ I would suspect would either save himself for few crucial occasions, or take a more back-ground position trying to influence things more from behind the scenes, in order to not have to put himself too much in the midst of the actual action, due to inferior Se.Some descriptions of Napoleon:''British general Wellington: "I used to say of him (Napoleon) that his presence on the field made the difference of 40,000 men." Few, if any, commanders, before or since, fought more wars and battles under more varied conditions of weather, terrain, and climate, and against a greater variety of enemies than the French Emperor.'' That sound like really strong Se, not the unreliable inferior one.Sure, an INTJ who wants to develop his Se can use it very well in crucial moments but ''few, if any commander before or since,fought more wars and battles under more varied conditions of weather, terrain and climate, and against a greater variety of enemies than the French Emperor.'' That sounds like a very adaptable person, and if there's one thing that separates ENTJs form INTJs, is this level of adaptability that the tertiary Se gives.Not ENTJ. Most here like to use stereotypes to enter historical or fictitious figures. You know why he's not ENTJ? Here is my review of Napoleon: He spent his teenage years training the art of military strategy and avoided social contact; he was quite reserved and quiet in social relations and in fact had no social skills, so he had to ask for help to Talleyrand. For me this is clearly INTJ!Napoleon and Caesar are synonymous with extroverted thinking. Very appropriate representations of ENTJ.Whoever broke the 51 vote streak: No, Napoleon was not an INTJ.
