    Good leaders:

    INTJ
    ENTJ
    ESTJ
    ENFJ

    Bad Leaders:
    INFP
    ISFP
    INTP- Possibly can be good
    ISTP- Possibly can be good
    ESFP
    ISFJ

    Mediocre Leaders:
    ESTP- arguably good
    ENTP- arguably good
    ENFP
    ISTJ- arguably good
    ESFJ
    INFJ- arguably good

    Most of its just a preference to lead. EJs are more likely to have both the organization, people skills, and outer world orientation to theoretically be the better leaders.

    IMO any type can be a leader. No one type is going to be the "best", instead there will be different styles that people will either work really well with, or not work well with. That said there are some types that will be more likely than others to lead as they will be drawn to doing such things. I agree with the notion that EJ's tend to be drawn more than others.

    There are several of us ENFJ's in my friendship circle and all of us in one way or another are regarded as leaders in one form of another (some formal, some in formal), and are seen as being very good at it.

    Yes. Leadership is not just about calling the shots, it's also about listening to feedback, interpreting it as needed, and learning from it. If you follow a strict formula that does not allow for accommodate if new information then the leadership will be poor, or fail outright. It's just as much about as letting the people group lead you to where you need to be to lead them.

    And finally this. I have seen many people try to be leaders, who them themselves do not like being lead, are bad at being lead, or just hate being subordinate in general try to be leaders and they are almost always terrible at it. Luckily they usually don't last so long in these sorts of positions unless there is some provison (like tenure) that allows them to stay.

    Some types are more naturally oriented to take a leadership position though. Some cringe in the spotlight, and some thrive in it. Sure people are different and there will be outliers, but generally some types are naturally more suited.

    Got this from an afticle

    In one study of 26,477 persons in a Leadership Development Program at the Center for Creative Leadership, the following percentage frequencies were reported:

    1. ISTJ 18.2%
    2. ESTJ 16.0%
    3. ENTJ 13.1%
    4. INTJ 10.5%

    Clearly, there is a majority of Thinking and Judging preferences among leaders and managers. The structure and values of most organizations favor logical and decisive behaviors. It may be that Thinking and Judging behaviors have become the accepted definition of what it means to lead and people with these preferences are seen as “leadership material.”

    Women in management positions sometimes show a greater percentage of Feeling types than in male management groups, but typically Thinking is the preferred type for a majority of these women (McCaulley, 1992).

    I think it really all depends on the cause/project. Ultimately you need someone who is passionate, compelling, and organized enough to function. I think just about any type could fit that tole given the right amount of interest and intrinsic motivation for success. For just general workplace team management, ExxJs are probably the most obvious choice. Simply because they are generally assertive and organized.

    I'm a high brow, running my own interests, looking for leaders to absorb responsibilities. I enjoy observing those around me excel.
    I am ENTJ, gifted iq. Provided with and guided to success by caring parents. I am the ideal end result. I manipulated my life from the start thru method recognized applications, then studied as a degree. I'm aware of my higher intellect. I surround myself with INTJ persons mostly because I recognize fact based responses I then adapt post conversation. Everything I do is calculated, rarely being out-witted.
    Any type can lead. Smart persons are of all types.

    I'd think any type could be good at being a leader if they were well developed. ENTJs and ESTJs would like it the most, but enjoying your position doesn't always make the best leader. If I had to pick someone to be a leader it would be either an ENTP or ENFP because they would usually be the least controlling and wouldn't be up our asses all the time. Obama is an exception though, he has done nothing right in his whole 6 years of being elected, and though he is ENTP, he is a very dictacting one. He probably developed his Fe way too much.
