    Ok, Rommel is most likely some kind of STP. But which STP?

    All types can have sore spots. I've noticed that xSTP men always get defensive when someone questions their masculinity.

    One of Pattons famous quotes is "Don't fall in love with your plan", and he was always a pain the ass to his superiors. Patton didn't seem to care much about power and politics. He just relished a good fight. Sounds like an ESTP to me.

    Patton reminds of Alexander the Great, who cried when there was nothing else to conquer and then drank himself to death.
    Listen to me, baby, you got to understand, you're old enough to learn the makings of a man.

    Bullshit. Bill Clinton never struck me as trying to find something better than what he managed to make happen, a penultimate failure of NFs. I think ESFP is more spot on for my favorite President.

    Because he took himself seriously, and like all good men had a mean streak? :rolli:

    Actions speak louder than words. Anyone who has ever been stupid enough to try that on me has regretted it. Sounds like xSTP behavior to me. Good job, Brother Edgar.

    Fantastic. I wish you edited Keirsy's type descriptions. You're more honest.

    No comment, not into self incrimination.

    I didn't realize ESTPs were susceptible to cooky reincarnation shit and beating on shell-shocked soldiers.

    Rommel? P? Come on.
    The guy is the biggest ENTJ out there.
    Big J, but with the "fingerspitzegefuehl" to improvise and master high level tactics and low level strategy.

    I might actually agree that patton might be an ESTJ, Montgomery definitely and the others I can't have a stron opinion about.

    Manstein is usually upheld as the greatest German general of the war. Rommel's abilities as a commander have been overrated.

    I would be interested in hear what type Guderain was.

    To add:

    Julius Caesar - ENTJ
    Napoleon Bonaparte - ENTJ
    Gebhard von Blücher - EXTJ
    Georgy Zhukov - ENTJ
    Robert E. Lee - ENTJ (him being pretty pious made him a bit milder than usual, but it's there)
    George Washington - ESTJ
    Sun Tzu - INTJ
    William the Conqueror - ENTJ
    Ṣalāḥ ad-Dīn Yūsuf ibn Ayyūb (Saladin) - INTJ
    Baybars - ESTJ
    Gaius Marius - ESTJ
    Carl XII of Sweden - INTJ
    Joachim Murat (guy in my avatar) - XNTJ
    Jean-Baptiste Bernadotte - ENTJ
    Arthur Wellesley 1st Duke of Wellington - ENTJ





    There is not a coincedence that the ENTJ is called the fieldmarshal.
    Great field commanders are often ENTJs or ESTJs, the great, logical organizers.

    I've read some about Guderian, he strikes me as some sort of ESTJ.
    Really talented general, as well.
