    The messianic cult around Obama make me feel him as an archetype of ENFJ guru, Michelle is his ISTJ dual.

    This is the question I was going to ask. In Dreams From My Father he comes off as an introvert, especially when he was younger and living in Hawaii.

    I agree that Barack Obama is an ENTP. You get this sense of contained energy from him, like it's taking all his discipline to present the sober image required of a US President but what he really wants to do is run around and really throw himself into the job wholeheartedly.

    The ENTP configuration also explains his charm and charisma. ENTP types have Fe as their tertiary function and may use it a lot to in service of their dominant intuition: to basically "win friends and influence people". They can be very charismatic and persuasive when using this function, with a certain boyish (or girlish) charm.

    Obama is particularly adept at oratory, I'd guess that he has worked very hard to develop his Feeling function in an attempt to balance the cooler, more remote attitude of his Auxiliary Ti. This is why he appears ENFJ-like to so many people.

    IMHO, Obama's innate type, and his seemingly high level of personal development, makes him uniquely qualified for the difficult tasks ahead of him.

    As for Michelle, that interview was revealing, but not nearly enough to accurately guess her complete type. The I and J are pretty obvious, but the other two letters are open for debate. I'm currently torn between ISFJ, INFJ and ISTJ.

    And I'd get him to swap our places,
    Be running up that road,
    Be running up that hill,
    With no problems.

    An ENTP becoming president ?

    Really... thats hilarious.

    I can hardly type him, I think he leans in the direction of ENFJ because I have got no experience with that people.

    People who think Obama is an F seem to be confusing idealist political beliefs with idealist personality. I don't think I've ever seen Obama do something that wasn't calm and calculated, he's a T to a T.

    Desperado is an ENFJ, Obama's not.

    Yeah, exactly. Obama's an ENTP.

    With people I think you include me and I think he is no T because he is too good. Ts are honest with themselves and you ajblaise are a flaming example for this. Obama is no entp because entp break down with too much attention. Just trust me on that one. I dont know if he is ENFJ, but he is definitly a F. They are the only ones who are truly able to get that much fans.

    Try to look at it vice versa. What type was McCain ? a F ?

    I like to spend time and talk with people, in fact that is what I do a lot of the time I'm offline if I'm not working. But I'm definitely an introvert.

    I wouldn't be so quick to label him T based on those reasons alone. We have no idea what is going on in his head and what he bases his decisions on. Not saying he is NF because I have doubts on that, but in a role like his one would need to at least appear to be logical.

    Edit: I think he is close to the E/I and J/P lines, with preference for I and P.

    As for him being ENTP, if he is, he is unlike any other I've known. I know many ENTPs personally and one attribute of theirs is a remarkable inability to understand how others view them. Obama is very understanding of his image and how people see him, and has been his whole life according to his autobiography.

    Obama is a lot like one of my best friends (even with the mixed race thing) and he knows it lol. My friend idolizes Obama. My friend tested ENTJ but I believe him to be ENFJ.

    Just thought I'd throw that out there.
