    INTP leadership? Isn't that an oxymoron?

    Agreed. In every role, there's a niche for all kinds of people. I or P types might not seem like the "typical" leader, but that's exactly why they can be so valuable in that role.. I'd imagine an INTP would bring qualities like humility, open-mindedness, and ingenuity to the table.

    Yup. It's more an issue of what non-typical skills that INTP has developed that will give them just enough social skills and extroversion to handle the rigors of dealing with people so regularly, I think. There are definitely benefits to the sense of strategic vision, fairness, and openness to varied ideas (regardless of who brings them up).

    it can work.

    as long as the intp is fairly competent and thus fairly confident in the field in which he finds himself, he or she can fit into a leadership position nicely.

    also, as described in some books/sites on the subject, there has to be a lack of competent leadership currently existing. at least in my view/experience, an intp would not likely seek to usurp power from a functional and decent incumbent leader for the sole purpose of achieving a position of power.

    yeaaahhhh... there have been a few incidences where I've seen one person doing something that is going to get her in trouble... but I don't do/say anything about it. If two of them start screaming at each other.. I will probably have the same (lack of a) response.

    The only leadership I learned i got from Marching band and the Marines..... and I can mimic a drill instructor-style leadership easily, because it's the only one I know!

    That being said, you wouldn't want me in charge no one would! (except maybe the higer-ups)

    I thought he was an INTJ : what makes you think he's INTP?

    it can work. It worked for Bill Gates.
