    Default Richard Branson

    What is his type I wonder?

    Almost undoubtedly E, and a Feeler also.

    ExFx

    I'm heavily leaning ENFP actually.

    ESTP or ENTp for me.

    He seems to have vision,which could be an N thing, and a natural salesman and self-promoter.
    EXTP traits.

    Also a love of risktaking which is evident in both these types. but thats just my opinion...

    Stereotypical ESTP to me.

    I read his book a long time ago. ESTP or ENTP I guess. Probably ESTP.

    Actually he's reported to not be an extravert at all; I read somewhere that his type is said to be ISFP. That makes him quite unusual, as ISFPs do not fit the popular conception of what makes a successful entrepeneur.

    I've found the article, which can be read here:

    To back this up, one of my closest friends has met Richard Branson on a personal level, and her description of his personality is entirely consistent with ISFP. It's a type I know quite well because my younger brother is an ISFP. He has also bucked the trend - he is a highly successful and well respected (not to mention well-paid!) HR systems consultant with a top Japanese corporation.

    And if I only could,
    I'd make a deal with God,
    And I'd get him to swap our places,
    Be running up that road,
    Be running up that hill,
    With no problems.

    ENTP popped into my head for some reason...

    I've always loved his sense of fun as evidenced by all the pranks he plays. If I had his money too, I'd likely play all those elaborate pranks too...

    p.s. That blasted PDF link is not loading for me.

    That's a cool article. Interesting just for some insights into a successful ISFP type.

    I can see ISFP.

    ENPs are known for being entrepreneurs and STPs.

    I think maybe ISTP if not ISFP, he seems to act a lot like one, and his love for exploring and extreme experiences.

    Love him!
