    I voted ENFJ because they like to include everyone in the kingdom with their superior Fe. INTJs would just be power hungry like ENTJS and force it's people onto war killing the entire civilization.

    Well, putting aside for the moment the fact that what I said there was not equivalent to what you said later...
    Didn't you see the part where I said one of them could be queen? :queenie:

    That would be entirely counterproductive. Compulsory participation in construction brigades, environmental remediation teams, home health service provision, and billboard obliteration would be far more constructive.
    I've been called a criminal, a terrorist, and a threat to the known universe. But everything you were told is a lie. The truth is, they've taken our freedom, our home, and our future. The time has come for all humanity to take a stand...

    That's the kind of grammar only an Fe-dom could support.

    I see why they get your vote.

    In my kingdom, you'd be euthanized.

    And we'd all be better off for it.

    Here comes the superhero to the rescue, insulting others and leaving zero room for logic, creativity or common sense. Everyone cheers and pity's the fool. The thread then slowly dies and another mission is accomplished.

I suppose Plato would argue the best king is someone who doesn't actually want power or control, but has it foisted upon him (I've heard that the founding fathers actually followed a similar ideology in choosing Washington). That in a well-functioning society, the king is the most miserable person. By that "the best rulers never crave power" rule, INTJ probably isn't a great answer. Not to say all INTJs have a particular lust for some measure of control or influence, but there are probably other groups that, on the whole, want it less.
    My opinion is that EJs are the ones that really want to run the show and not INTJs though they often end up in leadership roles (as ISTJs do as well).

    Here is my logic for the three I voted for:

    ENFP - Can be a very inspiring leader. Understands the constituency and what they want. Flexible negotiator who is able to strike compromises. Bill Clinton is a good example of an effective ENFP leader.

    ESTJ - They get people organized and get stuff done. Though not the most inspiring leaders, they clearly enjoy being in charge and are pretty effective in running a routine operation.

    INTJ - Thinks about the big picture and all the component parts. Good transformational leader. Not as good at maintaining something that doesn't need to be changed.

    Ones I didn't pick:

    ENFJ - ?? don't get this

    ENTJ - Probably have the greatest desire for power. Think they are better leaders than they are. Studies that I've seen of different types of leaders shows them to be no more effective than any other type. They were actually not rated towards the top.

    Hehe, silly NTJs and their attempts to gloss over the lack of consistency within their own arguments and reasoning using sheer belligerence. You guys slay me.
