    I can't see how he's anything but an ESTP. He's a brilliant promoter (and a lousy performer, which rules out ESFP). And I don't see him as much of a leader despite his governating role, so he's no J.

    He's an actor and a politician. And an extrovert.

    I also know an ESTJ who is not very social, but that is only because his social skills are poor, but he gets better at it as time goes on. It seems that for him specifically, Te gets in the way of that.

    Is "politician" listed under ESTJ careers?

    Does Arnie have poor social skills that got better with time? My recollection of him from his early years is that his interpersonal skills haven't changed one iota.

    I have no idea to both of those questions.
    The example I gave of the ESTJ I know was just about him. I wouldn't be able to generalize that to all ESTJs at all, but I mentioned it because it's real.

    What do you think Arnie's type is?

    He seems quite decisive to me and always has been.
    Not all ESTJs are dull and cranky, you know?

    J's are decisive - except for the one's who aren't. Some people lose self-confidence.

    I read most of the previous thread on Arnie's type and didn't see the answer I was looking for. Close, but not quite.

    Few people want to think Arnie could be the F and not the T. I guess he just "looks" like a T. And yet he expresses his "values" in his interviews. He "effs" all over the place. The guy, in the things he says, reeks of F-ness. This is not to be confused with some of the characters he portrays, such as the ISTJ Terminator. (The Terminator's programming is his Si function, as well as his primary motivator to action.)

    He is undoubtedly the 3w2. I don't know why but the Enneagram is so much easier to determine type with than MBTI.

    The difficulty with typing Arnie is that he is not very self-revealing. However, this can be a clue to type. An Extravert who is not very revealing is described on an ENFJ page: "ENFJ's tend to be more reserved about exposing themselves than other extraverted types."
    http://www.personalitypage.com/ENFJ.html

    By the way, most celebrity typing pages think Arnie is an INTJ, and that's just a load of crap.

    I see where you're coming from with that, but Arnie just isn't "hyper" enough in my view. And the ENFJ type often appears as some social ideal - the beautiful woman, the strong he-man. I think as an ESTP Arnie would have made a great race-car mechanic.
