    I would guess ESTJ, but it's hard to tell if these TV pundit whack jobs are as paranoid as they seem.

    I'm getting a CxNT vibe as well, can't decide on that last letter though :pornstar:

    [edit]a few choice moments:

    YouTube - Beck "Lose[s]" His "Mind;" Screams At Caller: "Get Off My Phone You Little Pinhead!"

    YouTube - Glenn Beck on Barack Obama: "This guy is, I believe, a racist" [FOX News]

    YouTube - Glenn Beck Can't Spell

    YouTube - GlennBeckisaCryBaby.com - Extended *English subtitles added*

    It really makes me angry watching this phony take advantage of all the paranoid racist dittoheads since Obama got elected There's simply no such as thing as a "calm, honest debate" to these people.

    I would never watch Fox News, so I haven't actually seen "The Glenn Beck Show" (is it called that?), but I have caught two or three clips of him on You Tube.

    He strikes me as a rabble rouser. I don't think everything he says is garbage, but he seems more interested in entertaining or scaring people (and for many, they are the same thing) than reporting or opining. Some of what he said in those clips seemed to betray a shallow understanding of his subject matter; I would never go out of my way to listen to anything he has to say.

    Seemed to me an ESTP.
    A criticism that can be brought against everything ought not to be brought against anything.

    Glenn Beck is what happens when Ne flies completely and utterly off the rails. All of those outlandish connections and hyperactivity--he's like an intuitive, caffeine-injected version of my ESTP father. Of course, I haven't watched him much (I avoid the news in general), but that's my impression of him.

    I don't think he's insane, I think it's largely an act. Supposedly, in private, people that know Beck will tell you the same thing. He's a political shock-jock. It's especially evident when he fake cries... probably an ENFJ.

    Though, he is a Mormon.

    I'm not too fond of these attempts to type people I hardly know, but jokes about his insanity aside, I'll say ENFP or INFP.
    Go to sleep, iguana.

    Well this is my first attempt at typing someone else but I'd say Beck is an ESXJ.

    Beck is anything but a moderate.
    He's the type who should be placed in a straight-jacket.

    I could go with that. Glenn Beck annoys me, NFPs annoy me.... so, yeah. He does have that whole obsession with his values while superficially pretending to be open-minded thing.

    Ah. But seriously, I'd guess some kind of ExFx type. ESFJ, ENFJ, ExTP (with developed Tertiary), and ENFP all seem like good guesses. He definitely isn't an ESFP, though.

    ENFP might work...

    I really hope that he doesn't, but if that's the case, then he really needs to let some people know he was kidding... like my mother.

    My mother swears by him. She listens to him everyday, and talks about how much she hates the government, and how they're tearing the constitution apart, etc. My mother acts like a more acrid, racist version of Glenn Beck (because she constantly complains about Hispanics and African-Americans in addition to what he says, and spins all the things he says in an unpolished, divisive way), which is extremely annoying. Luckily, she's also quieter.

    She swears by him so much that she actually forces me to consider his ideas, as ridiculous as they sound. Ironically, she just goes around telling me that the stuff he says is "common sense," and that I need to "wake up" and get my head out of the sand. I just don't know how to deal with that, or show that he's wrong... sigh.

    Any advice on how I could show my mother that Glenn Beck is wrong, and she has nothing to be worried about? Just as a side topic, because it's really annoying... she usually tests as ISTP, ISFP, or ISTJ.
