I hesitate to even mention type here because I don’t want to give the impression that I believe his negative behaviors are inherent in the type and applicable to all others of the type. He’s the extreme. He has some serious health/mental health/addiction issues that affect his behavior and thinking. He’s the poster child for a totally whacked out, narcissistic, decompensating ESTP.
ENTJ??? What??? No. The thinks short-term and tactically (Se) and ping-pongs one idea to the next, is easily distracted by something shiny (Ti). “Thinks” on his feet. Lacks any real strategy; doesn’t have the ability to formulate long-term solutions or see the pending consequences of his actions. Thrives on chaos. Lights dumpster fires. Doesn’t know how to solve a complex problem, just enjoys creating them. He also deeply cares about having people like him, constantly talks about his approval rating, size of the crowds, thinking the press is picking on him, tries to get others riled up about the other” (mean girling). It stinks of abnormal Fe.
Side note: He’s decompensating. His behavior will be come even more erratic before he finally loses it. He brings to mind someone who is just rapid fire rambling bullshit, like a coke addict or speed freak. That’s probably the Adderall.
Yeesh. It makes my head hurt to listen to him try to formulate a cogent thought or proffer a sound argument.
Anecdotally - an ESTP Buddy of mine upon watching Trump on tv at one of his rallies said, “wow this reminds me of me before I got help when I was whacked out on coke”.
Ya. Pretty much.
