    Default MBTI type and political affiliation?

    From what I understand, a person's personality is second only to upbringing in what most determine's ones political affiliation. It seems that

    Most NFs tend to be either liberal or moderate and openminded. For example, Barack Obama is an ENFP at least from what I understand, and is slightly right of center. In regards to religion, they are "spiritual" and tend to support marijuana legalization, saving the earth, etc. They remind me at least of hippies.

    NTs, when they are interested in politics, are either communists or libertarians. Most aren't happy with the state of society in general, and look towards radicalism for the answers, which it often provides. They are also highly individualistic, and radical ideologies separate them from the rest of society. George Carlin's beliefs come to mind. I'm an INTP myself and I'm an anarchist-communist.

    SJs are almost always right wing and conservative, at least socially. This one is pretty obvious, tradition and family are very important to them and they generally don't have much animosity towards the status quo unless it somehow subverts tradition or their values.

    SPs I really don't know because I haven't met any in my life.

    This is a pretty general summary and I'd write more but I don't have much time right now but I wanted to get this out so I could come back to it later.

    I'm an INTP, I'm Libertarian, far closer to Right-Wing than Left-Wing.

    SPs, if they know what it its, are usually Libertarian, because they want to be free to do what they want, when they want, how they want.

    ENFP-Independent.

    Anarchy would be nice, too.

    but I guess I'm just saying that because I always think a radical change in tides would be nice.

    I'm Independent. But I do think that governments should function more on the consent of the people rather than for money. Does that blow me off the middle ledge?
    Is it that by its indefiniteness it shadows forth the heartless voids and immensities of the universe, and thus stabs us from behind with the thought of annihilation, when beholding the white depths of the milky way?

    NF and democratic socialist. apathetic about the political climate in america (among other things), but i still vote and i usually vote green.

    i'm unashamed of being on the far left. i do have some somewhat conservative social opinions, otherwise i'd probably be a full blown anarchist.

    In many ways, growing up in Southern California in the 1970's turned me into a libertarian (vice Libertarian party member, which I am not).

    Fiscal conservatism - stay out of my wallet
    Social liberalism - stay out of my bedroom and private life

    This was very much the way much of SoCal was back then. Sadly, no longer.

    I support much of what the Libertarian platform holds, but I do believe there's a place for some level of government (like...as outlined in the Constitution), whereas most of the Libertarian party members I know are more anarchist.

    I actually think we could use a lot more government. 90% of people are too stupid to think for themselves.
    If a deaf INFP falls in the forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?

    Despite thinking it's misguided, I do have an anarchist streak.



    And I don't care about political parties/labels in any way.

    According to The Political Compass I'm a left-leaning libertarian.

    You are aware that there are two sides of the fringe?

    ANARCHY! FUCK DA SYSTUM!!!111 Who needs cops and hospitals and all that bullshit.

    Communism worked so well for the Russians.




    So in conclusion Obama is a right winger and smart people are all Anarchists and Communists.

    Obama's definitely not a "socialist" as some media outlets love to label him.
