    Dude... both Rommel and Patton were ESTPs.

    Read Keirsey if you're having trouble figuring it out yourself.

    Which book are you referring to?

    By the way, Keirsey gets a lot of typings wrong. (Bill Clinton as an S)

    You can look up a lot of his stuff on his website.

    Bill Clinton is an ESFP.
    Although I do disagree with Keirsey's assertion of Obama being an INTJ. I think Obama is an F.

    Clinton is very much an N, at least by the MBTI-system. (There are some minor discrepandencies between Keirsey and the MBTI.)

    But none the less, if you yourself think Keirsey is wrong, then using him as proof can be only preliminary proof.

    I'll look up his arguments for Rommel and Patton.

    Ok, so he lists Rommel as an ISTP along with Woody Allen (whom I deem to be INFP). In eigther case, there are no arguments

    I didn't say "if Keirsey says so then it is so." I just agreed with him on a certain topic so I referred you to him. Unfortunately, I can't remember exactly which of his books I read that in, though.

    From what I remember about Rommel's biography, he had a very STP commanding style. He would show up on the battlefield and wait for opportunities to present themselves. He didn't seem to have a grand-scheme-system of operation that NTPs are so fond of.

    Ya, I get you with Rommel. Its possible that he was ESTP or ISTP.

    *looking through his letters*

    Clinton is an ENFP.

    Patton was ESTP.

    Indeed Clinton is an ENFP.

    Now if Patton is an ESTP why was he so sensitive to being made fun of?
