    Is there a Skip to Jeffster's Informed, Reasonable Opinion Button?

    As for his type, I think SP, but the E/I and T/F are hard to figure with him.
    Agreed. ISTP. Dead giveaways are the nicknames and differences between private and public speaking (coarse, effortless/affected, halting).

    And if his father is indeed an ISTJ... I don't know, just a possibility.

    What was her vision? Aside from an insatiable quest for power and pandering to popular opinions?

    Let's be honest here, Jeffster. If it wasn't for his daddy, Dubya would be a Subway customer service operator.

    He scored 1260 or whatnot on his SATs and he did manage to get through Yale, albeit with a C average. I suppose it's a little easier to get in when your daddy is head of the CIA, but if he was honestly a complete idiot, he would not have gotten through it.

    I don't think he was a particularly good president, but he's honestly not an idiot. A lot of his public mannerisms are faked for the sake of pandering to the demographic where he scores the highest ratings--good old southern, traditional values conservatives. It shows that he's in touch with the common man, apparently.

    These people are generally distrustful of government and men in suits ordering them around, so they feel much safer having "one of their own" in the white house. It's calculated for a reason--if you think he's a total moron for his public speaking mistakes, then you're not part of the demographic his public persona is designed to reach, anyway.
    Seems to me all this social engineering did was work against him.

    I vote ESFJ too, because only an ESFJ would be comfortable acting and pretending to be a buffoon for 8 years. Just look at mercury and his rediculus blue man avatar!! what the hell goes on in those ESFJ heads anyway?

    Haha they seem to have this really goofy sense of humor, but it's cute a lot of the time.

    Good point--anyone who makes it to the highest office of power in the nation (and probably the world) is going to be at least reasonably intelligent--do you guys have any idea how competitive running for president is? Nobody that gets that far into the power structure of a country this big and powerful is a moron.*

    He's an ExSP monkey. Thats as clear as day-light. Also i wouldin't be quick to conclude him as unintelligent. He's just very clumsy and haphazard mentally in Se manner, which shouldin't be confused with stupidity, which is a slight mental retardation.
