    Default Video: Bill Gates: INTP or ENTJ?

    • A video examining the claims of an earlier video, which proposed that Bill Gates' personality type was INTP. Around 8:00 they call erroneously call Melinda Gates "Melissa Gates". Sorry about the mistake.* * *

    He's an INTP and Jobs is an INTJ. Both sapisexual.

    I can see INTP, especially for the way in which he achieved success. INTPs have that poker player business sense like no one else. They are the ones capable of new insights into Game Theory and so forth. Ne funneled through Ti can negotiate the environment in this manner. They maximize insightful strategy over tenacious hard work. They don't keep trying and trying and working for the goal, they invent something new and come at the world sideways.

    I see him as an INTJ. He is decisive. He doesn't really extrovert intuition. Did he build a new operating system? Kind of. He stole most of it. Look at Paul Wosniac, inventor of the mac os, that is extroverted intuition at its finest. Gates really is a singularly focused individual who strategizes extensively at every decision point. He is a mastermind in general. Is he a shrewd businessman? Not really..that is more like trump. Is he a masterful strategist? Yes. But he is singular. He doens't balance ten things at once. He really does hunker down on a single item, and he delivers exponentially on it. He uses the windfall to employee others who are more competent in those areas. He is almost the opposite of Elon Musk. He also leveraged his fathers legal ties and had many dishonest practices early on in his career during which he emerged victorious. He is the quintessential evil mastermind.

    FYI - Steve Jobs is not an INTJ...absolutely no way. He is the frontman of a team...if anything he is an ENFP or ENTP...but no way in hell an intj.

    Gates: TiNe/INTP
    Musk: TiSi/INTP
    Jobs: NiFi/INTJ

    No, this isn't looping. It's a preference for internally processing and organizing before attending to the external functions.

    Hmm, I guess I don't hold a popular opinion.
    But I don't think he values or prefers subjective logic. It just doesn't fit his lifestyle or anything he's done or achieved in his life. Maybe if he was a physicist coming up with new theories and models or something, I could see it and INTP would make sense. But he has spent his entire life pursuing goal after goal and acquiring knowledge for the ingenuity and utility it has in doing that. He has a much more directive personality, something much more relatable to Te, it seems. But it would be interesting to see an INTP be so successful. There's probably one out there somewhere, but probably keeping a low profile or something.
