Posted on 08/17/2011 1:06:18 PM PDT by Psycholitics
Here is a very interesting and revealing article (exerpt) about Obama's personality and how it affects his presidency.
"Barack Obama is unique in American presidential history. By virtue of his biracial identity and international upbringing, Americans believed they were breaking the mold when they elected the first African American president in 2008. Yet, for all the distinctiveness of his life experiences, there is still something else that sets Obama apart in the hall of presidents - his innate, natural temperament.
According to personality psychologist David Keirsey, temperament is the part of our personality that we are born with. It is our default mode of perceiving and processing information, and it colors how we respond to, and grow through, the events of our lives. Keirsey theorizes that each of us falls into 1 of 4 basic temperament types: Artisan, Guardian, Rational, or Idealist. A person's type indicates that they have particular character traits, values, motivations, skills, and decision-making styles.
In his book, "Presidential Temperament," Keirsey examined the temperament types of forty U.S. Presidents and made a surprising discovery: in 220 years of elections, there had never been a president with an Idealist temperament. Despite the fact that Idealists comprise at least 10 percent of the population, no Idealist had ever occupied the White House -- until Obama.
The reason behind Obama's singularity in American history is a fascinating mystery, which can be solved by examining his life, his decisions, and his temperament."

He forgot the fifth personality type: ahole.
the flaw of idealist temperment is that they believe that their ideals is a justification for the violation of the natural rights of those that they dissapprove of.
With time on his hands Barry, a well spoken black man, was able to get elected to a state office, oddly because he looked for fraud in his opponents voter registrations and got his opponent disqualified from running. Barry a well versed liar was a natural in state politics. He used his political influence to get himself a position as a lecturer at Chicago's law school. Barry embellished this position as a "professor of law" which everyone knows is completely false. Barry was not a professor or even a specialist at anything but lying.
Just more psychobabble to excuse the behavior of an indoctrinated marxist, bi-sexual, mulatto narcissist and serial liar and felon.
He’s in deep doo doo...
I thought he got it in a car accident.
Well, I saw "American Psycho" once . . .
. . . can't be too far off
They want us to believe that a man with no idea what he is doing is an idealist?
I’d have thought Wilson would have been an idealist.
It depends on your definition. If Idealist means a dreamer or utopian, then Woody Wilson and Jimbo Carter would certainly fit that mold.
“Despite the fact that Idealists comprise at least 10 percent of the population, no Idealist had ever occupied the White House — until Obama.”
An idealist propelled by a combination of affirmative action and Marxism. Great.
Beg to differ, but Obama is no idealist...he is a pathological narcissist. A Marxist who believes the world is to blame for his endless list of screw-ups.
you have a link for the rest of that?
He knows exactly what he is doing.
He's strictly a gurrly mahn.
This is where the guy lost me. ObaMao may have talked the part when he first ran for the presidency, but his governing style is based on division, not uniting.
Even some of the most gullible Americans who bought that shtick first time around won't be fooled again.
Type? Sociopath kinda fits.
As I read the article, I would also place Woodrow Wilson, whom I detested long before Glenn Beck was on the radio as an idealist.
So I went to this guy’s web site and found Gov. Palin’s personality. She is a ‘rational’ and, more specifically, a field marshall:
“Id have thought Wilson would have been an idealist.”
I should have read all the comments before placing mine...I totally agree with you about Wilson being an idealist.
If you read the entire article, one fact comes through loud and clear: an idealist (like Obama) is unfit to be president.
ENFJ’s are mostly sociopaths. So this fits well as far as I am concerned.
I kind of think it’s that:
“He knows exactly what his puppet master(s) are having him do to the United States.”
I think calling him an idealist is giving idealists a bad name. IMHO, he’s a sociopath. Sociopath does not equal idealist.
“I thought he got it in a car accident.”
No. THAT was how he was conceived.
I just followed the link (what a concept!) and saw this sub title at the top of the page.
“Obama is a Teacher by Temperament”
Uh...no. Teacher’s enjoy explaining things to others and bringing out the best in others. No...just no.
You nailed it. ENFJ’s are my least, least, least favorite type. I try to avoid them completely. They are manipulative,
sleazy, and selfish. And they think they know better than everyone else.
That’s right. There are lots of way cool idealist types, like mine. ENFJ’s really should be in their own category - car salesmen all the way.
I believe this is probably much closer to the rea Barack Obama as any other bio on him.
Remember, nobody in his past has come out and bragged they went to school with him, no other ex-girlfriends, no professors ever bragged he was their student, no hospital bragging that the President of the United States was born there, nobody from his past.
“”they elected the first African American president “”
How many times does it need to be said - HE IS NOT AN AFRICAN AMERICAN? His first lie!
Don’t bother reading the article. Just look at what is in front of your face.
