    Hopefully he would also have an answer to that question.

    I'm not sure if you understood what I meant by xNTJ.

    Yes, and that's never been a particularly intelligent one.

    I agree that it should be an XNTJ. All the best despotic, atheistic dictatorships are run by NTJs with a keen, objective sense of what a perfect society would/should look like and the tireless, goal-oriented drive to achieve the power necessary to shove it down everyone's throat for the greater good.

    I,for one, would like to point out that IXFPs would make the worst type.

    EDIT: I stand corrected. Heil dem (einem?) INFJ!
    'INFJ' as a feminine noun:
    Nominative: die
    Genitive: der
    Dative: der
    Accusative: die
    'INFJ' as a masculine noun:
    Nominative: der
    Genitive: des
    Dative: dem
    Accusative: den
    So, saying "Heil der INFJ" is correct if you wish to indicate that the INFJ is female (although nouns actually have fixed genders), as "Heil dem INFJ" would be correct if you wished to indicate that the INFJ is male, because you are using the dative case.

    Wasn't Princess Diana one of those types?

    If she had lived 500 or more years ago, when royalty still mattered, then she'd probably be looked at as some fairytale legend, shaking hands and helping out all of those dirty people and stuff. Could be worse.

    True.

    However, the real power would lay in whatever T type was sitting pretty on the throne.

    I know that I would make a horrible person in charge of anything.... and I run my own business...

    For some reason, I think I'd be ok with that kind of power. I would probably be uncomfortable at first but not for long.

    There is no such thing as an objective sense of a perfect society. Any idea of such a perfect society is subjective.

    My greater good is better than their greater good.

    I make a distinction in my mind between a ruler worth serving, and a ruler worth following. I think a king is rarely both as it's a difference between an Fe vs Te leadership style. If the king rules with a social contract in place, then you want an ENTJ to follow. We respect frameworks long after our regard for persons has run out. And (occasionally despite ourselves), we buy into that Rawlsian notion of justice as fairness and all that idea entails. We'd wanna know we'd have a fair shot if for some reason we had to do it all over again.

    In the absence of a social contract, I'd want an INFJ to serve. I say this because I imagine a more feudal system in that vacuum, in which case the king rules by a complex array of relationships. I think the INFJ is best suited not only to manage those relationships, but also to bring out the moral best of their social web. If an ENTJ is a king of the people, then the INFJ is one for the people. The king rules by example here. INFJs live their ideals of social justice, a standard which would hopefully trickle down to even the bottom rungs of society.
    And so long as you haven’t experienced this: to die and so to grow,
    you are only a troubled guest on the dark earth
