    If you'd meet an extraordinarily talented ExTJ in a game of real battle, prepare to lose.
    A game is always a game, and easier to comprehend.
    And, don't forget, a game doesn't involve mass-death on your conscience, unless of course someone is really neurotic and starts mourning the fallen pieces or AI characters.

    Another point of the ExxP types in ruthless-leader-positions...
    You guys fuss, argue and discuss way too much. That's not a good trait.
    Maybe in a reporter, or a lawyer, but not in a strong Machiavellian leader. :rolli:
    This whole thread is full of it.


    You might have a point about the ISTPs, though.
    If there is any type at all that ever makes me feel inferior, it is the ISTP.
    They just know stuff that other people won't ever be able to learn.
    Like the "Fingerspitzengefühl" of some extraordinarily talented EXTJs when it comes to organizing war.

    Risk is more based on ability to profit of opportunities that luck gives to you than on strategic planning like that boring game that is chess. So, of course STPs beat NTJs at that game.

    Strangely, the INTJ type have always seems the more likely type to equal me at my own game. To equal me but not beat me, of course.

    How is Clinton an N? He doesn't seem particularly abstract.

    Bill Clinton is an ESFP.
    Although I do disagree with Keirsey's assertion of Obama being an INTJ. I think Obama is an F.
    He's neither. Obama is an ENTJ, masquerading as an ENFJ for the public.

    ENTP, masquerading as an ENFJ for the public, IMO.

    Because:

    - Extreme introspection

    - Ability to turn a phrase around

    - Personal messiness

    I was simply trying to point out that a game of Risk is hardly a meaningful measure of strategic ability. It's a bit like thinking you have a more strategic mind than your opponent because you beat them at Ludo.

    Sometimes I am truly mesmerized by the immediate hostility and mind-numbingly annoying sarcasm of my type.

    Actually, a contest of words could be a more interesting measure of relative capabilites. There are more far more strategic possibilites, and less reliance on luck.
