    Default Ron Paul

    I wonder what personality type Ron Paul is. Here's what I think:

    Enneagram: 1
    Meyers-Briggs: IxxJ

    I have never before thought of a Libertarian being a Type One...

    Huh.

    I'm going with INTJ because they seem to love him the most. Probably a 6.

    It's so weird!
    I don't know why libertarians are so often INTJs. My brother is an INTJ, and he expresses shame in this tendency of his type. Next to that, ENTPs seem rather libertarian, but I can't explain that.
    I've haven't seen much from INTPs or ENTJs, so why?

    Why are INTJs and ENTPs like that, and yet not INTPs and ENTJs?

    Lots of ENTJ libertarians. I remember browsing through a libertarian forum which had an MBTI poll and there were quite a number of ENTJ's.

    Individual choice and responsibility appeal to those who are rational and dedicated. INTPs, however, are bound to realism because of their Ti and understand the danger in believing full heartedly in any ideals. I don't think I've ever met an INTP who had a strong political alliance. They typically pick and choose their political beliefs based upon their own values and what they believe would work best. So it isn't uncommon for them to have a mix of liberal, libertarian, and conservative ideas and laugh at people who choose only one side.

    XNTJs are more susceptible to idealization. However, considering the empathetical background of liberalism and the religious background of conservativism, the most logical political ideology they would be susceptible to is the individualist style of libertarianism. ENTPs are always interested in what is new, and since libertarian ideals seem fresh in comparison to the stagnant two party system we have now; they are eager to try it.

    I wonder if it's really so simple for ENTPs.

    Anyhow. I'm proud of me and my INTPs.

    My INTP is a very strong Libertarian, however since a 3rd party system never works when it comes to the highest office, he's works very hard for the Republican cause.

    First I've heard of.

    I'm almost the opposite of a Libertarian.

    That describes me perfectly. I am very much a left-winger in a general sense, but details-wise my views are pretty eclectic and pragmatic, which ticks off the people in the Democratic and Green parties I like to call the ideological purists (that is, the guys who would rather nominate a Kucinich-like person and lose then vote for anyone who doesn't fit the mold of the Baby Boomer culture warriors).
