    Thumbs up Nominate 20 greatest leaders (political or military) in history

    Alright, I am making a facebook quiz and I want it to be about which famous leader's personality you share with. So give me a list of 20 greatest (or the most notorious leaders) in world history and their traits. And please suggest what question i should ask in that quiz. Thank you for your help.


    No george W Bush or barrack Obama, or the US presidents in the recent two decades in your nomination, please, because I don''t think they reach the level of greatness in history.

    If you want to you can also post their type for argument and debate.

    Since you started the thread, Cloud, are suggestions of possible ENTJs permitted, or is anyone who might feasibly be that type offlimits?

    no, any type is welcome. i am not going to be a dick in this thread.
    But i hope you don't put all of your nominations as ENTJs (or NTJs for that matter) or that will piss me off.

    This may be valid, but even though Hitler was a bit of a chump in terms of war, winning the hearts of the people is a key part of being a leader, and Hitler did so in spades. There's a lot of ways to judge a leader. In a manner of speaking, someone like King or Ghandi may not be out of place on this list.

    Some a little off the beaten path..I figure if you're making a quiz, you're trying to touch base on different personality types?

    Elizabeth I
    Theodora should probably be bundled with Justinian
    Henry V - epic king
    Jeanne d'Arc- epic rebel
    Saladin - another chivalrous type
    Rommel - humane for a Nazi
    Cyrus the Great - humane for an ancient world leader
    Hannibal Barca - most badass loser
    Che Guevara - another great loser..probably need one guerilla on this list anyways

    So Walter Cronkite was once the leader of the US? ;)

    Rommel wasn't a Nazi.
