    I'd imagine much of his bravado is inflated as to attract ratings.

    He seems an ENTJ.

    Healthy ENTJs can be quite compassionate.

    Why ENTJ and not ESTJ?

    He seems to develop opinions on the basis of an internal keep (Ni) v. strict adherence to the details and facts of his environment.

    As the level of culinary professionalism is likely quite high, it seems less about legitimate quality of product v. aesthetic appeal and/or catering towards a wider stream of possibility (grooming talent; networking; etc.).

    While the ESTJ is perfectly capable of the latter arrangement, I daresay the ENTJ is likely to be more interested in establishing innovative adaptations to existing theory.

    One hundred percent yes!

    Is quite high and I would say his focus the end result without cutting too many corners to reach it. A sensor imo doesn't have the ability to reach that far ahead.

    Yup.

    Can you think of an example? ESTJ and ENTJ descriptions seem quite similar except when I read them ENTJ sounds more like him (and I can relate to it better of course!)

    Ah, that might be an understatement....

    I think I would hate him if I met him in his restaurant! But he's a sweet, fun-loving guy when he isn't talking about the restaurant. I think he is ENTJ too - these ENxJs certainly know how to make successful careers

    ESFJ surely.

    When he was training under Marco P White he had a tough time as is the Chef industry. He came across as being quite sensitive. The industry toughened him up. I know an ESFJ that is almost exactly like him.

    I'm willing to bet NJ over SJ. His focus on improvement and especially his focus on improving existing employees seems to be VERY Ni to me.

    I usually watch the BBC version over the American version & he seems to be a lot more compassionate in that version. I also notice that in the American version, the restaurant owners/staff tend seem a lot less appreciative and a lot more abrasive than the majority of the BBC episodes thus causing him to act accordingly.

    I wouldn't be surprised if he was an ENFJ over an ENTJ, as I really do feel as though I see Fe+Ni working together as I watch him develop and improve employees of the resturant. I see him using the development of employees as the tool in the overall success of the resturant - I think an ENTJ may go about things in an opposite way & not be as people centered.

    Couldn't agree more, the US version was a caricature of the UK one.

    When I saw the topic I thought ENTJ and everyone seems to agree. I don't understand why so many of you doubt his N though.
