    For Richard Branson, I'll have to go with ENTP as a primary type but with a developed Fe function. His dominant extraverted functions seem to fluctuate throughout his life, such that he goes through Se phases, and all of his introverted functions are weakly developed. He is the healthy e-type 8 integrating to 2, probably 7-wing (the Maverick).

    If you think that Richard Branson is of a reactive type, you are fool.

    To those fo you saying ENFP and ENTP, that does not match reality. The man is almost the definition of Se. NFP and NTP are Sis.

    Oh and the fact that he did all those ridiculous performance stunts. Showing off and performing is an ESFP trait.

    This article though has a much more ESTP tone to it.

    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/home/mosl...assengers.html

    Again Se dominance is clear, but here he comes across more opportunistic.

    Living louder than reality is a typical ESTP trait. He doesn't actually own most of the Virgin companies. He licenses the brand. Also what kind of billionaire rents out his private yacht? Not many, but maybe an opportunistic one would (ESTP).

    Still, I have the instincts of an engineer. I am fascinated by how things work and how things are done, and how things might be done differently. - Richard Branson
    More of an ESTP quote vs ESFP.

    ENPs can be adventurous and into crazy stunts too

    I don't think 8w7 is a foolish assessment (though I don't agree with it) the guy does look an awful lot like a an 8 integrated to 2

    Elfboy, I still think you're ESFP as well. So I take your defense of ENFP with a grain of salt.

    I've noticed a pattern as well on typology forums as well. When things don't fit the types people want them to, they resort to Enneagram to fit in the gaps. Or "I'm just a really feeling type of Thinker that loves art and poetry and cooking and helping people, I'm *definitely* an INTP though!! - multiple tests confirm it!!"

    Silly.

    MBTI + Environmental Factors (eg a person's past influences from the environment, abuse, drinking, divorce, happy family, moving around a lot, rich, poor, average income, being teased, large family, only child, daddy issues, drugs, pressure to perform from parents, orphan child, overbearing mother,cultural differences, etc etc list is endless) give a very accurate overview of any individual.

    RB is definitely an ExxP. I believe we could all agree on that?

    I haven't watched interviews of him. So my typing would be wrong. But typing people from interviews would be a hard thing to do.
    Everyone who is interviewed appears extroverted I've noticed .

    He does give a Se dom vibe.
    Assuming he is an Se dom I select ESFP hands down.

    ESTPs are somewhat tensed and are usually overkills.
    RB appears and sounds extremely easy going and peaceful.
    (Also gives a slight Hippie vibe that is somewhat xSFP and never xSTP. )
    ESFPs and my type are the most easy going extroverted types in my opinion.
