    Not me for certain. I don't like leading. I could do it for a while and be a fair leader but it's too taxing, especially to take in all the anger that comes with the territory.

    So not probably any feeler. I don't know if introversion or extraversion makes any difference. More of thinking type and not too spontaneous. So ENTJ or INTJ?

    Any type can be a good leader with sources of good advice, a leader cannot lead if he/she does not listen and learn. So what good leader/advisor relationships are there?

    ENFJs from what I have noticed.

    Too bored to go into details.

    I think INTJ's are the best leaders. However, the only downside is that they may not actually want the position of leadership. I think they're less tolerable of bothersome people. I believe INTJ's reported that they have the least satisfactory relations with people during public workplace.However, I think extroverted judges do well.

    The best leader is one who is also able to be lead.

    Agreed, but I would also judge effectiveness based on where they are being led.
    [Trump's] rhetoric is not an abuse of power. In the same way that it's also not against the law to do a backflip off of the roof of your house onto your concrete driveway. It's just mind-numbingly stupid and, to say the least, counterproductive. - Bush did 9-11


    This is not going to go the way you think....

    In my own personal experiences of bosses/leaders I've had...

    The best leader of a group I've had was likely an ENTJ. Regardless of type, why I think he was good was:
    1) He set clear direction for the group, and that direction was actually inspiring.
    2) He was knowledgeable about the work being done, and could actually help out instead of just barking to go faster.
    3) He took the time to understand his people.
    4) He kept group standards high.

    I think these are things any type can do.

    I've had an ENTP boss who was similar too.

    I should mention that the second worst leader I've had was also an ENTJ, but that's a topic for another thread.

    Accept the past. Live for the present. Look forward to the future.

    The only good leader is a dead leader.

    One who leads by example.

    I'm going to say either ESFJs or ENFJs.
