    Inventor =/= ENTP.

    In my opinion the only way to really accurately type these people is to go back in time and meet them. Good luck with that.

    No one who ever read a biolography or any descriptions of Jefferson's behavior from his contemporaries could ever, in a million years think he was an E.

    oh sure. and even then you'd have to take into account the flawed system of MBTI and how technically, his functions could be in a different order than described. the question is how far are you willing to go?

    Okay, there seems to be this weird thing concerning Grant.

    Whenever I see typings of General Grant, he's an INTJ, however whenever I see typings of President Grant, he's and ISFP.

    Did he get hit on the head really hard between the two careers? Because that's kind of a drastic change.

    Not far enough to get in this same debate that will derail this thread along with the 234978238947523894 others that this "other function order" idea has been brought up in.

    what exactly is extroversion to you? that he seeks out other people to talk to? that he needs to be with other people? in MBTI functions, extro/introversion is tied to a function, and the outcome of that function determines whether the person is introvert or extrovert; NOT what contemporaries thought he was and NOT whether he sought out other people.

    If you want to type him under a different personality system that's fine, but under MBTI there's no way he was ENTP.
