    I considered that myself.

    Both for what would be better, and what my enneagram actually is.

    It's a tough question. 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.

    Not to say I necessarily agree with Plato on his whole philosopher-king riff, just bringing up the notion.

    Also, RE: something earlier: I don't care much for Ayn Rand myself, but I always thought she was usually considered INTP, not INTJ? A lot of her Mary-Sue characters seem to be considered INTP.

    Yep, king shouldnt be too controlling or controlling people for his own good, thats way no way in hell Te dom or aux should be a king. Imo king needs to be N and Efp or Fj or Tp or there is a 95% chance that king should be killed

    I think a lot of people would agree their preferred king would be the kind of king who says "wait, why the fuck do we have a king?"

    Any type can be a king if they are qualify. As for me, I don't want to be a king or queen, that's not my style.

    For me it's between a INFJ and INTJ - they were the two that immediately came to mind based on pure instinct. I suppose I see them as deep thinkers and noble crusaders for social order and justice. I struggle to choose one because I believe a balance of the impersonal and personal logic is more ideal.

    I can't vote for INTJ, cuz that could be a super-introverted retarded INTJ (we've seen enough of them).

    And I can't vote for ENTJ, cuz, well, they tend to be retarded, power-hungry monsters.

    That being said, an xNTJ would be far better than a xNFP.

    ENFPs should never be close to the reins of power.
    Its like when the I becomes the E (in xntj case), the IQ suddenly plummeted by 40 points. Thats just my view though.
