ENFJ - The Givers
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.
INTJ - The Scientists
I'm not sure about these.
Disagree with these.
F. Scott Fitzgerald
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?
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".
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.
INTJ - The Scientists
Not in the 17th century it isn't. Also, C.S. Lewis was probably an INTJ. Stereotyping at it's finest...not.
And it's also hard to imagine the deeply religious Newton as INTJ.
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.
