    That's me, I am always put in a leadership position in every job I have had, I really don't want to be a leader. I don't even try to be one, I just do my own thing and people come to me for direction. Not very good at it and even as a kid I would push for anyone that was following me to be themselves and do their own thing.

    I agree with the whole EJ types as being the more natural leaders. Better though depends on morals when it comes to an EJ being good vs bad leader, not necessarily type.
    Im out, its been fun

    I'm gonna go with something-something-TP. It's more of a personal preference, and an FJ could still be logical and flexible... but if I had to choose a leader with nothing to go off but type then definitely some type of TP

    heres from BEST to WORST leaders
    ESTJ (everyone had them as a boss and they use high te and si so they very direct)
    ENTJ (high te as well)
    ENFJ (extroverted and direct)
    ESTP (high se and ti)
    ISTJ
    INTJ
    ISTP
    INFJ
    ENTP (enough fe to be an okay leader)
    ESFP (high se and enough te)
    ESFJ (high fe and emotional iq make them a great leader)
    ISFP (despite high fi, they're not even hypersensitive like infps, at least they're aggressive, and pick up details easily so they'd be a good leader)
    ISFJ (pretty good leader as well since they have fe/si and can organize)
    ENFP (awkward and bubbly, but not frail/childish enough to be a bad leader like the infp)
    INTP (absentminded, so not really, possibly can lead in theoretical related stuff)
    INFP (TOO quiet and gentle/childlike to even be a leader)

    I don't think leadership is totally type-dependent.

    I think the "best leader" depends solely upon the nature of what a person is the leader of.

    Different positions require different styles of leadership.

    Regardless of type, if you understand the system you govern, and how to govern it for both preservation and progress, you can be a good leader. Some types are better fit for different systems.

    If you have trouble being led, perhaps your leader should offer fuller disclosure.

    Actually it does depend there's a correlation of types that prefer not to lead like infp they r the least suited to leadership by society standard
