    Default Has there ever been an INTP President?

    Has there ever been an INTP head of state?

    They say Albert Einstien and Charles Darwin were INTP... But they're dead, so with out getting into the whole

    I wonder, were there ever any rulers or anything who were INTP?

    Yes. Plenty.

    Probably the most obvious one, Thomas Jefferson was most likely INTP.

    Very likely. Off the top of my head, I'd say John Q. Adams was an INTP. Very possibly James Garfield as well. Kiersey identified Lincoln as INTP, and I've seen others agree, though it's debatable. (though if both those last two are right, INTP Presidents have an odd tendency to be assassinated)

    Thomas Jefferson is a maybe, but I wouldn't say I'm as certain about that. Woodrow Wilson might've been, too. No President since then even has a chance of being INTP in my estimation.

    I always thought Darwin was xSTJ....leaning towards I?
    'One of (Lucas) Cranach's masterpieces, discussed by (Joseph) Koerner, is in it's self-referentiality the perfect expression of left-hemisphere emptiness and a precursor of post-modernism. There is no longer anything to point to beyond, nothing Other, so it points pointlessly to itself.' - Iain McGilChrist

    That's what I fear.

    That doesn't necessarily mean an INTP couldn't get elected again.

    Though the modern political environment does not seem very conducive to an INTP nominee.

    Actually, the current dutch prime minister (demissionary now) is most likely INTP. ;P

    Keirsey said Jefferson was an INTP. apparently he invented things like swivel chairs and automatic doors and had bad fashion sense.

    am I saying INTPs have bad fashion sense? well, take that however you will.

    I have no fashion sense.

    If it's practical, I wear it, if it's not, I don't. :P
