    He's an alpha, and an idealist. Clever, outspoken, long-range thinker.
    He has always been social, and always intersted in people and ideas. His facade seems authentic, because it is fully integrated in his personality, I see no dishonesty in him. He had to fight himself to find his faith.

    I say ENFJ after reading 'The Audacity of Hope'.

    ENFJ

    Read his books, both of them, especially Dreams From My Father which he wrote a long time before the presidential race. Reading those I thought very much that he is an idealist. Though I also liked his pragmatism shining through, as an NFJ I can relate to that, on the one hand having high ideals but on the other hand just wanting to get things done too.

    Also I would argue against ENTP because most ENTPs I know just love to start a little bit of conflict and to argue, they can have an almost guinea-pig like approach towards other humans, testing out with glee how other people will react. That's not Obama, he is great at being well-liked and creating a co-sensus. Also the Fe I have seen in a lot of ENTPs smells fake to me, I have a very good radar for Fe and if you are trying to use it to con people and to build your own little kingdom I can often sense that while Obama seems genuine to me. (though I have to say that "selfish Fe" is far more easy to detect in younger ENTPs) And though he is obviously not perfect I don't think I have ever heard him say anything that would sincerely make me question his motives or make me think that he is just one big fake hiding behind a friendly mask.

    I think he's xNTJ. Earlier in the discussion, someone said something along the lines of, 'Well, if he's not an ENFJ, he puts on an awfully good impersonation of one.' Ironically, I think that's exactly what's going on here. What has struck me about Obama is that he doesn't experience strong emotions. He said in an interview on the campaign trail in 2008, "Even on the campaign trail, I don't go through many ups and downs. I never feel too happy. I never feel too sad. I stay very much of the same temper."

    I've seen an INTJ do a masterful impersonation of the INFJ for years on end at his job because he wanted to impress people. For him, it was part of the mastery of his job; he would do things he found uncomfortable just to play the part. I think Obama is probably an ENTJ who knows that appearing eloquent and deeply empathic toward people who would identify (either consciously or subconsciously) as 'downtrodden' or 'outcast' will help him achieve his agenda and unify people. And I agree, he's great at it.

    I agree with most of this. Obama really isn't an NF. His oratory style is.

    One of the biggest complaints about him and the oil spill is that he can't emote to people and act passionate or angry about it. The press corps dubbed him No Drama Obama early on, and even started using that against him. And that's been his style the whole presidency so far. He's even-tempered, pragmatic, and analytical, much more so than ENTJs as well. I think he's a chameleon INTx.

    INTJ, if that's the case. Which would make him the 11th INTJ president so far.

    Based on the picture of Obama swimming in Hawaii I would figure his somatotype is:

    Endomorph 2.5 Mesomorph: 4.5 Ectomorph: 5.5

    That would make him an INTJ according to the chart below (2,4,5) :

    Default What type is Barack Obama?

    I'm sorry if a poll has been done already, but I only saw a thread without a poll, and, well, as a Te aux, I like empirical data.

    I also believe, to an extent, in the wisdom of markets, so...

    Vote away, people!

    I don't see an actual poll unless you want us to just state what we think?
