"How dreadful!" cried Lord Henry. "I can stand brute force, but brute reason is quite unbearable. There is something unfair about its use. It is hitting below the intellect." ~ Oscar Wilde - The picture of Dorian Gray

Not exactly sure what types they are but based on what I know about them, my guess would be ESTx and IxFJ. JFK reminds me of a lot Reagan personality-wise (not politically). The funny thing is, Jackie was MUCH more conservative than John was.
JFK's type is ENTJ. Think better, or bark further.
No...he's right, actually. JFK was an enneagram 7 which rarely correlates with ENTJ. He we bright, gregarious and highly charismatic, but most of his success was attributable to the machinations of his father, Joe. From what I've read of him, he's a strong E, strong P, and his idealist streak would make me think N. Most likely balanced, T and F.
Presidential block party edit: Examples of ENTJ presidents would be Woodrow Wilson or Roosevelt II.
Definitely. I wrote my dissertation about him and he is a textbook ESTP. Very Se focussed (loved gossip and the good life and an incredible amount of womanizing and absolutely no qualms about it), very charismatic and pragmatic, had a certain indestructible vibe about him (he was very ill and almost constantly in pain all of his life but still had the determination and charisma to become the icon JFK), brilliant at dealing with emergencies but did not have enough vision/a moral compass to avoid them from happening in the first place. His lack of moral vision was his Achilles Heel and biggest weakness (see the Bay of Pigs disaster or the Cuba Crisis, with which he dealt brilliantly but which he created in the first place by provoking Fidel Castro and being unable to take his enemy's point of view into consideration at all)
I am not so sure about Jackie's type, maybe ISFP. One thing that comes to mind is that she was a style icon and also an incredible interior designer but not sure that is enough to make a case for an ISFP.
