    I've always typed him as INTP regardless of what the "type" pages say. He is obviously very intelligent and quite a deliberate and dominant thinker. At the same time his delivery is so dry that I can only imagine him as INTP.

    What is Al Gore's type? - INTP Central

    INTP.



    He is abstract.

    He is clearly internally focused and appears to be a precise thinker. Also seems that the intellect preceeds intuition for him, therefore more likely to be a Ti-Ne rather than Ni-Te. We could tell that Thinking is his dominant function because of his ability to communicate his thoughts directly and clearly without first processing external information thoroughly. More likely an Introverted Thinker than an Extroverted Thinker because his communication style is more informative rather than directive. And by his nature he seems to be inclined more towards contemplation rather than action. Whatever actions he seems to engage in is an entailment of his thinking, and almost all of it seems to be very carefully thought out.

    He resembles an NP with his presentation style. Unlike a J he seems very fluid and likely would be successful at impromptu presentations.

    Are you sure? He didn't seem intelligent or abstract. I still think ISTx, but I don't see any N. He just seemed focused on reiterating typical perspectives on various issues, if I recall correctly. I remember most his lack of imagination and originality. Do you really relate to him that much?

    The reason to think that he is Intuitive is because he is able to understand mutliple perspectives quickly and easily as well as interact with them. Such a quality is closest in tune with Extroverted Intuition.

    It's just that he doesn't seem quite as intelligent or to have put as much thought into things as most of the other INTP's I've encountered on these forums... he seems to have a social bent, worried about people's well-being. I wonder, if you're going to go this route... could he be an INFP? He was kind of sensitive about losing the election, and had trouble accepting it.

So, maybe ENFJ might be another option - especially if you think of the rhethorical style (the benevolent pedagogue).

    What do you think ?
    Fucking brilliant man. I think he's definitely an ESTJ!

    YES!

    As a politician, he is not in the position to share his most abstract thoughts with the general audience. However, he did show many tendencies towards being naturally at ease with such activities. His sensitivity was exaggerated by the Media and his own self-presentation as it was clear that this would make him seem more charismatic. As well as it also is the case that in his age, the forties is when INTPs focus on their inferior function. Acting 'sensitively' was not an end in itself for him as it would have been for a Feeler, but he rather used that to further his impersonal goals. We notice that this has served him well as he has succeeded in his global warming campaign.

    But isn't being concerned about global warming a Feeling perspective? I mean, it seems to be based on a concern/compassion for human life. That isn't very impersonal. Also, since he doesn't care how it makes him look (An Inconvenient truth, the inconvenience of which apparently doesn't bother him), that hints that it's Fi > Fe... so that still means INFP or ISTJ.

    I was being serious. The man knows what he's doing. I don't think he's an N however because he tends to be very practically minded and more effective in terms of strategy. N/s tend to less organized and absent-minded. Not Gore
