    Default Hillary Clinton's type

    I know there's a thread for typing politicians but threads dedicated to a single person seem to incite more discussion.

    I see Hillary as an INTJ (with formidable Te ). Admittedly I don't know all that much about her, being European and all. What say the rest of the female INTJs, do you recognize yourselves in her at all?

    And what say the rest of you?

    That sounds close, but formidable Te suggest Te dominant which would be ENTJ. Most politicians are going to be extroverted. I see her as no exception.

    I didn't mean that her Te was dominant, just well-developed.

    So the question is in part what the evidence is for her being Ni dominant?

    meh, politicians and performers are difficult to type because they are so image conscious, oftentimes having an entire professional staff to create their image.

    I read the excerpts of the letters she wrote in her college years that surfaced recently. That half-righteous, half-vulnerable speculation fits the female INTJ writing I know (that would be my own, my mother's and two INTJs in their thirties). Admittedly I don't know any female ENTJ writing well for comparison.

    I see Hillary as governed by the subjective insights of Ni but using Te to manifest her visions. As a public figure she is awkward. She gets by with persistence, but she's more effective behind the scenes.

    Could you imagine her marriage to Bill, if she were an ENTJ?
    I doubt they would still be together.

    I also think her infatuation with him occurred precisely because he was an E and she was not.

    I am in agreement. Also, on a note touched upon in discussions elsewhere on this site, any self-respecting INTJ would've written Bill off as a loss and moved on after his little stunts.

    How does anyone know that her Te is more formidable than her Ni?

    And statistics are not proof of anything. Perhaps a parent is culpable in 80% of child disappearance/murder cases, but we all have seen what happens when statistics are applied erroneously across the board (re: Jon-Benet Ramsey). You will still have a certain percentage of introverted women politicians.

    It would be interesting to learn more about Hillary when she was a teenager, and before she met Bill.
