    Post V.I Lenin

    Wikipedia says INTJ but I don't think so. So what type would he be?

    I know in socionics he's kind of a classic ESTp there, versus having an array of interpretations, so that's why I bring that up. Not sure about MBTI.

    Why not INTJ? That sounds reasonably accurate, given what I know about the man.

    How many of these guys are you gonna claim for ENTP anyway? Can't at least some of the evil overlords be INTJ, huh?

    From Robert Service's Lenin:A Biography pg. 7-8:
    [Lenin] was an able suppressor of outward emotion. He acted calmly even after the trauma he suffered when his elder brother Alexander was hanged; and later he was to find steady satisfaction in his work alongside his wife...There was always the possibility of an explosion:Lenin was a human time-bomb. His intellectual influences thrust him towards Revolution and his inner rage made this impulse frentic. Lenin had a greater passion for destruction than love for the proletariat. His personality is closely linked to the kind of politician he became. His angry outbursts were legendary throughout the party before 1917; shortly before he died they became so acute that serious questions arose about his mental equilibrium, even his sanity. But usually he took a grip on himself and channelled his anger into a controlled form of agression. He was a political warrior.

    Peguy, that description could be applicable to an INFJ as well (probably more so than an INTJ, even)
    Listen to me, baby, you got to understand, you're old enough to learn the makings of a man.

    Yeah but Lenin was a compulsive workaholic, and certainly had considerable organizational abilities.

    Socionics also absurdly lists Vladimir Putin and Osama bin Laden as ENTPs, based on the shape of their nose and the twinkle in their eye or whatever...

    Read up on Mel Gibson... a workaholic INFJ who has considerable organizational abilities, unpredictable emotional outbursts, and bouts of paranoia.

    Thats nice but doesn't show how Lenin was such. Although SW had him classified as ENFJ.
