I pegged him as ENTJ originally, but ESTJ works just as well. I felt people were very biased on typing him due to politics, and it became a proxy war for the worst type. I seen many list him as ESTP, but that is very very wrong. He clearly is a judgeing type.

He could be a narcesistic ESTP with enormous ego, you don't want to look undetermined or weak as a president
so just make any judgement take all risks, all judgements are made everything goes haywire.
Very consistently ESTP I'd say..Though I love the type itself I think they're very fun to be around,
this man is very missed up and there are many factors affecting his personality.
Its not fair to deduce a "worst-type" from him :|

Very obviously ESTP. This ESTP I know loves him. Acts just like him. If you happen to know any less than mature ESTPs personally you can see the resemblance to Trump quite easily. ESTJ would imply he pays attention to details and respects hierarchy (absolutely not) and ENTJ would imply that he has some plan when he quite obviously does not. It very much is a stretch to peg him as Si/Ni...

Probably a fucked up ESTP. Saw a weakness in the system and made a play for it. There wasn't a long term plan to get into office. Just an opportunity. Most ESTP's are good at spotting a weakness/flaw in a person/machine/system and taking full advantage of it. The GOP were too busy sabotaging other candidates. He wouldn't have had a chance at running in the first place if that flaw hadn't been waiting. We're nothing if not opportunists and operate more tactically than strategically. He had help with the strategy.

ESTP. Very spontatenous. Uses tert- Fe to come up with ideas and slogans that will appeal to his supporters. Doesn't care much for detail like Si user would.

Of course a Te dom ESTP.
I think you meant to say Se-dom ESTJ :wink:

He loves hierarchy, as long as he's on top, and actually has shown a fondness for authoritarian regimes in both policy and attitude.

ESTJs are generally very active and are too focused on immediate results to get caught up in details.

Agree that he's not ENTJ, but ESTJs are not long range planners. They are early deciders and plan in the near future (J), but they are not future-focused (S). People are confusing a S stuff for P stuff I think.
ESTP. Very spontatenous.
Planned spontaneity. He makes a decision ahead of time, and then acts like he's in the process of deciding late to put on a show. He had plenty of time to practice it on his show, even if it never was a preference.

I believe it to be a near certainty for example that he made an agreement with departing Supreme Court justice Kennedy to nominate Kavanaugh ahead of time, yet he acted like it was a reality show and kept people on their seat by holding interviews with others and acting as if they had a chance of being the nominee, so he could make his big exciting announcement, as if he finally decided on Kavanaugh. Zero spontaneity but it makes him look like a late decider, and he does this to entertain.

ESTP

Also lightly irrelevant but he's an absolute sucker for pretty women. For people saying ESTJ/ENTJ - I really doubt he is a Te dom.... like really doubt it. Now, Se dom - I totally see that.

Agreed

He also knew when not to run as well. He was previously approached and declined to run prior. He knew It was not a win at that time. He picked a very opportune time

I was thinking about why it's important to debunk the idea that he's a Perceiver. I don't think Perceivers are more inherently skilled at things than Judgers in general. Maybe slightly in some things on average while Judgers are slightly better at other things on average. But Trump has built a fake image of himself as this wheeler and dealer type businessman who can make "deals" happen as if by magic. I don't think there is anyone that can do this. But Trump has essentially sold himself as a superhero with the superpower of impromptu deal-making and decision-making. But that's all it is - it's a sales pitch, deceptive self-marketing at the most basic level, where he sells himself as a Perceiver.

What he actually does is stage things to make it look this way. The guy's a general moron but one thing he has been successful at doing is making this pitch that he can walk into a room and make things happen in a way that other people can't. Yet how it works in reality is he either:
  • Knows how something is going to end and plans for it to end that way, while making it look like he made it happen with his deal-making superpower
  • Sets a goal ahead of time, and gets his loyal minions scrambling to make it happen, ready to swoop in and act like he's the one who made it happen in the first place, again through his superpower
To see people type him as ESTP generally indicates that they've bought into the deceptive charade that he has this superpower. Because once you see that he is not a late decider who keeps things open for improvisation, I believe it becomes obvious what he actually is: an ESTJ.

I think he's clearly ENTJ. He's a Te-dom because he focuses on achievements (real or fake). He brags about his achievements and attacks others for their lack of achievements or for achieving bad things. He's definitely not an ESTJ because he doesn't do things by the book, he rejects tradition and he doesn't even like to prepare speeches, because of his Ni he feels he only needs to know the broad lines and he'll figure out the rest as he goes. ESTJs have big egos but they don't reach this level of megalomaniac.

That more often enneagram based than just type though

I think ESTP because he's so "pragmatic" (which is SP or NT). ENTJ could be possible, because that's the "pure Choleric" who can undertake any behavior (and look like other types) to achieve goals. But he doesn't seem like an N; just someone who's primary ego drive is exploiting opportunities in the tangible world (Se) and doesn't seem to be a "big picture" thinker. He's purely "in the moment" (including his reaction to things; like in Twitter, etc.), and also, not "structure-focused" (NT, SJ). So "unhealthy" ESTP "Choleric-Sanguine" seems like it.

I usually do not bother with celebrities, but he seems like EXFP type 3 to me.
