    I don't know shit about MBTI, but I'm going to take a cheap shot. I'll type Obama as ENTP acting ENFJ. If it is possible for the 7th and 8th functions to be as highly developed or frequently utilized as dominant/ secondary functions, then his primary personality might consist of (Ne, Ti, Fi, Se). Early part of his life seems to be dominated by identity crisis, experimentation and discovery of personal values.

    In dealing with the external world, he utilizes (Fe, Si, Ni, Te) which could appear similar to (Fe, Ni, Se, Ti). I see him drawing upon past experiences (Si) with intuition (Ni) to make judgements. He relies on concious use of Fe (maintain social networks) and Te (implementation and order) to get things done, projecting a very put-together image. Se (ENTP) seems to be more of a weak spot for him than Te (ENFJ). He conciously participates in activites as if to keep him grounded, but gives off the feeling that he lives in his own world.

    I might be completely wrong of course. Is anyone talking about Obama anymore?

    I think before he became president you were all: wow he is so ENFJ.
    And now you say its ESFP ?

    I am curious, cause I rarely know him

    Relationships have normal ebbs and flows. They do not automatically get better and better when the participants learn more and more about each other. Instead, the participants have to work through the tensions of the relationship (the dialectic) while they learn and group themselves and a parties in a relationships. At times the relationships is very open and sharing. Other time, one or both parties to the relationship need their space, or have other concerns, and the relationship is less open. The theory posits that these cycles occur throughout the life of the relationship as the persons try to balance their needs for privacy and open relationship.

    He's got plenty of handlers to take care of the Te-ish stuff for him.

    But what can one assess from the speeches of a politician? At the very least, their acting abilities. At the very most, their hidden agendas!
    He's much too pragmatic to be ENFP. I'd actually say that it's the personality type which is both most drawn to politics and least likely to hold high office, because it's the ultimate "true believer" type.

    After this Asia trip of Obama's, Im more convined he is an ENFP instead of an ENFJ. I thought he could be either initially.

    He was pretty tired when he landed in Korea and avoided a lot of publicity. The kind of stress and burnout he experienced in Japan and China, would have affected an ENFP more than an ENFJ.

    I think ENFP's "image" is many times thought of as that bubbly Alicia Silverstone type in "Clueless". I think this image overruns his innate beliefs and characteristics for some people's judgement.

    As for the pragmatism, that comes with age for an ENFP or with anyone for that matter.

    Definitely an "NF"
    He's good at making speeches and communicating (E)
    yet he avoids conflict (I).

    I really don't prefer him.
    I'd prefer an NT president or even SJ.

    His speeches are probably written by others,
    so he is mostly a mouthpiece.
    It'll be hard to figure out his real type
    as opposed to the type of his speech.

    There's no way that man is anything but a J.

    I can kind of see ENFJ, but I think ENTJ fits the best. He's extremely logical, efficient, and has a knack for scheming. Seems like Fe would make life so much harder being a president.
    Is it that by its indefiniteness it shadows forth the heartless voids and immensities of the universe, and thus stabs us from behind with the thought of annihilation, when beholding the white depths of the milky way?

    I guess what I meant is that I could see an E being more direct about their issues with others.
