In February 2008, Slate.com ran an article about the Presidential Cast of Characters and their Myers-Briggs Types, written by Emily Yoffe. Ms. Yoffe is not trained in the Myers-Briggs Inventory but she “typed” them anyway. I thought her guesses were mainly off base, especially about innie’s and outie’s. However, I was surprised to find that even Myers-Briggs websites assume that most politicians are extroverted. In the last newsletter, I made my own candidate guesses. It’s interesting to re-read them in hindsight. I have added Mrs. Palin and Vice President, Joe Biden, as they hadn’t been selected when the articles were written.
I agreed with Ms. Yoffe, who guessed Hillary Clinton was an ESTJ (Taking Care of Business). ESTJ’s take no prisoners.
