    My only complaint is that you did not mention Layne Staley or Che Guevera in the list of ENFPs. I am currently reading a book on Che and, well I'd rather not rant on how ENFP he seems so I'll just leave it at I see similarities and he is a personal inspirations other than that silly personal complaint really nice list, differs from some of the others I've seen. I like

    INFP - The Idealists

    This is how I would type these people.....

    Jean-Jacques Rousseau - Possibly INFP, but definitely Fi-dom

    Frida Kahlo - INFJ....this is so obvious!

    Woody Allen - I thought he was an NT....

    F. Scott Fitzgerald - I would think ISFP, maybe even ISFJ

    Lady Gaga - INFJ, but it's interesting she's typed here as her opposite...she's got the INFJ "SP envy" I think

    Steve Jobs - I've seen good cases made for ENTJ.

    Bill Gates - ISTJ?

    Frederic Nietzsche - possibly INFJ, or else an INTJ in a Ni-Fi loop

    Barack Obama - Probably an NFJ

    Charles Darwin - I'd go with a TJ of some kind

    Thomas Jefferson - I've seen some good cases made for INFJ

    Hillary Clinton - Not ISTJ?

    Princess Diana - ISFP

    Charlotte Bronte - INFJ....she's totally an introvert, how odd to make her an E....

    Leo Tolstoy - INFP, but I know some would disagree. The character Levin in Anna Karenine is supposed to reflect his own personality quite closely, and that character is clearly an introvert.


    Carl Jung - INTP, IMO, based on his own description of preferring thinking first & intuition second

    Emily Bronte - INFP

    Oprah Winfrey - I've seen some good cases made for her being ESTJ.

    Thomas Hardy - INFP, heavy on the symbolism and liked to challenge the social mores of the day, definitely does NOT fit Keirsey's idea of an SJ anyway.

    ENFJ - The Givers

    The list of ENFJs makes me happy.
    I've read somewhere, however, that Bill Clinton's an ENFP. It seemed to fit him IMO. I don't know if Clinton's a Sensor? I always saw him as iNtuitive 'cause he seemed idealistic. But maybe I see most liberals as iNtuitives. :P
    Also, I've seen Lincoln listed as INTP and ENFJ before. But this has him as ENTP?! Does anyone know which one he is? Ne, Ti, and Fe are all very different functions, how could he be considered all three?

  6. #6
    ENTP - The Visionaries

    I read a little bit on Thomas Jefferson recently.. he was definitely an INFJ and not an INTP- one with well-developed Ti but Ni and Fe both seemed to play a much larger role in how he went about his role as a Founding Father. The conflict between him and Adams seems like an F/T conflict in many ways.
    Also, despite biographies describing him as "reserved", he has also been described as personable and friendly which suggests strongish Fe.
    Keirsey types people based on "roles" rather than personality types, so I guess he seems more like an "Architect" than a "Counselor".

  7. #7
    INFP - The Idealists

    For what it's worth Charles XII of Sweden does seem to be ISTP although I suspect some would type him as INTJ because of his interest in science and his leadership. I suspect he had aspergers.

    I don't think Isaac Asimov was INTJ, more likely ISTJ. His books are more or less mystery or adventure novels in SF disguise. He doesn't introduce and new ideas. And it's also hard to imagine the deeply religious Newton as INTJ.

  8. #8
    INTJ - The Scientists

    And it's also hard to imagine the deeply religious Newton as INTJ.
    Not in the 17th century it isn't. Also, C.S. Lewis was probably an INTJ. Stereotyping at it's finest...not.

  9. #9
    INFJ - The Protectors

    Yea I mean because Kiersey's temperaments are fairly broad and he's not taking functions into account its hard to disagree with him. There's a few of these where I can see them making sense from a Kiersey temperament standpoint that don't make sense from a Cognitive Function standpoint. Like Donald Trump clearly has an Extraverted Thinking preference, but he would probably fit Kiersey's ESTP profile too. Steven Speilberg is also clearly a Fe-type but he also fits Kiersey's ISFP.

    So knowing that Kiersey tosses the functions out the window it's hard to disagree that say Thomas Jefferson isn't an INTP or Bill Clinton ESFP. Of course we know that Jung was by his own admission a Thinking type. Generally speaking, though I think most of these are fairly close. Obama as INTJ is interesting, I could see someone making a case for this (he's been typed as everything under the rainbow by the way). Newton is both functionally and temperamentally an INTJ.
