    Ah, the ENFP club! I rather like you people. I see a great many benefits in your brochure!

    Well, the INFPs are stuck with me. I think every type has their bad apples.

    Oprah may or may not be ENFJ. Keep in mind that there are alot of people working behind the scenes to craft the "Oprah" image. From a high level view, it's very tempting to classify her as an Fe dom. She is very personal, and tries to reach out and and touch the emotions of her viewers. She is an intriguing mixture of personal generosity combined with a (I find somewhat raw) desire for money, power, and influence.

    However, I do suspect that alot of people type her without having really watched her show. ENFJ is tempting because of the scope and vision of her empire, but for all we know she's an ESFJ that has some visionaries working for her. I wouldn't bet one over the other, personally.

    From the times I remember watching the show, I can see ESTJ to some extent. Value in acts of service. Preaching of traditional values. Ne relief function could explain some of her creativity. Honestly, if you are up for making your case I'd be pretty interested in hearing it. Edit: Oh yeah, ESFJ has Ne relief as well.

    Also, I don't think there's a single person here who, despite thinking Oprah is ENFJ, considers you in the same boat as her.

    Also, quitting your type because Oprah may also possibly be that type is the most ENFJ thing I've ever heard of.

    I think all the stuff about her being a megalomaniac and a bit ruthless behind the scenes belies a TJ slant. I mean, think of all the comedy sketches about it (Dr. Phil being her bitch, having her thugs beat up Dave Chappelle).

    I second this motion.

    Oprah is just as batty and power-mongering as another ESTJ female I know. My Dad is an ESTJ male. WOW - It was VERY clear who was in charge of the house when we were growing up!

    My ESTJ mother can't stand Oprah because she says Oprah is like any other ESTJ my mother knows who is operating on/indulging force-fed F and believes her own press. Mom says Oprah's an ESTJ gone weird and when I asked her why she said "Look at her. She thinks she's God."

    ^ Fe/Ni can't be responsible for thinking one is God?

    Isn't the popular consensus that Hitler was ENFJ?
    If you could be anything you want, I bet you'd be disappointed--am I right?

    I said I could readily believe Hitler as an ENFJ. That was Fe/Ni meltdown in spades and I can see myself there (for better or worse). That's the Fe/Ni form of megalomania.

    Oprah is someone my ESTJ mother recognizes as "like" her. She arrived at this conclusion of Oprah independently of me though I'd deemed her ESTJ already.

    Bizarre! I didn't realize there were so many Oprah haters out there! I have 2 INFJ friends who adore Oprah. As for me, I've never been overly wowed by her, but don't have an opinion one way or the other. But I guess I too had always thought of her as ENFJ.
