    Yeah, I'd probably throw down a quarter for ESFP.

He seemed to be saying that "marriage" should be up to faith communities to allow or not, and make the civil recognition separate from that, which I totally agree with.
    She appeared to have note cards she referred to on the podium. What struck me is that she would give answers completely unrelated to the questions asked. It seemed that she used her prepared statements whether they applied or not.

    She is difficult for me to type because she seems image-focused. I do suspect Enneagram 3 for her. She does come across as an ES though. I would say an F unless that is mostly her projected image.

    Yeah, definitely true. Yet, as a political debater, she appealed to the voters she was supposed to and held her own far better than I anticipated. Definitely not qualified to run a country in case of McCain's death... but that's a different topic, hey?

    ES most def. When referring to the environment, she blew off the theory behind global warming and said she only cared about doing something about it. I'd say ESTP or ESFP. She's too natural to be a J; She seemed completely in the moment (like when she threw a shout-out to her relative's elementary school class). Aye, this is why I believe she's ESxP.

    Not too different a topic, because that is exactly the job of a VP, to be prepared to take over in that event. She also shares the ticket with an older candidate who has battled skin cancer.

    It was important that she was allowed to have prepared statements to give the impression of debating because the morale of the country is low and has witnessed too many broken systems as it is. The polls state that her image improved (and it did in my mind as well), but that more undecided voters were convinced by Biden. Contrasting Palin's cutesy delivery with Biden's experience and knowledge made quite an impact on me. Being cutesy and folksy as a potential leader amidst crisis is patronizing at best and completely demoralizing at worst.

    I view it as

    She did well enough to not polarize the two sides: She did poor enough to not impress those who were judging her on her leadership merit.

    It's probably the best outcome for the R party, but they still lost ground.

The stick up the ass attitude that many conservatives have is sickening. Palin's daughter as everyone knows is pregnant but yet she still opposes sex education and only promotes abstinence? Opposes abortion even if her own daughter was raped? Very backwards!
    Sarah Palin doesn't oppose sex education, and her pregnant daughter received sex ed in public school. She is definitely anti-abortion, but she is pro-contraception. This has been done to death in the Political threads.

    Perhaps today she does, but it depends on what she considers "explicit".


    Palin wrote, "Yes, the explicit sex-ed programs will not find my support."

    No, she was pretty clear on it. She just wants abstinence to be the emphasis of the education. Like a lot of social conservatives, she seems to think that talking about having sex during sex ed is the same as endorsing it, which is stupid. Still, she is pro-sex education and pro-contraception, and has been.

    Wink Palin = ESTP

    I think it's quite clear that Palin is an ESTP, "The Promoter", just like John McCain. McCain is very narcissistic like many polititians. So, it stands to reason that he'd select his same type on an impulse, which is the way xSTP types usually make decisions. A lot of people in here are claiming that Palin is an ESTJ, but I can't see that at all. Hillary Clinton is obviously an ESTJ personality (known for a fact), and Palin has no similarities to her at all. xSTJ's are very "service" motivated and they have a strong desire to be "accepted" by the group. Palin exhibits none of these qualities that I can see. Palin's "beauty queen" past is also a tipoff. ESTP's love being "on stage", and being the center of attention. However this type is prone to become very arrogant and even sociopathic when given real power, because they almost completely lack any empathy and feeling for humanity generally (F), and they're very deficient of intuition (N) to provide personal depth and a historical perspective on events and times. They're essentially there for "the show", and also to have everything entirely the way they think things should be. They are very, very poor characters for providing genuine leadership in a true democracy (i.e. George W. Bush, also an ESTP).
