    I thought David Cameron was an ESFp; he's very, very similar to my ESFp brother in law who has equally strong parlementary ambitions.

    Nick Clegg does seem a little similar to him, but less tough/harsh. I could see the ENFp typing working out for him.

    it's nice to have feedback.

    I keep in mind the Expatian typing of EIE for Cameron, while recognising I am unable (at least presently) to have any unique insights of my own.

    it's probably not surprising Clegg seems less harsh, considering Cameron is a Conservative and Clegg's a Liberal Democrat (perhaps that in itself can be somewhat indicative).

    I saw Clegg at a hustings before he became Lib Dem leader. I was very impressed with him, both in the way he expressed himself and his political ideology.

    I had never really thought about his type. IEE seems entirely consistent.

    even if his policies aren't. I still think he's OK, I just preferred Chris Huhne.

    Yes exactly, and in some sense I think that's why he and the Lib Dems are so good in the position they are, it's not so much the clear policies but the influence and occasional wild card they can use against the worst excesses of Toryness.

    I was in favour of Huhne before I saw them go head to head; where Clegg quite frankly blew him out of the water, not because of policies but through an ideology framed by localised narratives and personal experience. He sold himself as a nice guy who could play with the pricks, which is basically what's happening, I suppose.

    ah yes, I had heard about how he burnt down two greenhouses of cacti in his youth.

    I've just remembered that I've been interested in the types of William Gladstone and Benjamin Disraeli.

    I haven't been able to make much of them, but for the sake of argument, I'll put Gladstone down as a LSI and Disraeli as a SEE.

    Gordon Brown, ISTp? Maybe INTp? Has this really somber, negative attitude all the time.

    I just go along with the ILI typing. Yes, his apparent Fe PoLR was rather evident.

    Since I tentatively typed Gladstone LSI, I've been thinking that his quotes often seem to have a heavy -focus. He just looks so foreboding (similar to Gordon Brown in fact!...but in the days before photography captured a politician many times a day)...I don't know how to type him. Queen Victoria (who is typically typed as ESI), had a negative perception of him... "He always addresses me as if I were a public meeting.", especially in contrast with Disraeli.

    Perhaps looking at quotes of politicians is not useful if they are generalized and idealistic, and of course influenced by the party line (although contrary to that stance, he essentially was the party)...

    O M F G !!!1!!

    British Prime Minister David Cameron put a "private part of his anatomy" into a dead pig's mouth as part of an initiation ceremony for the Piers Gaveston Society.

    It was in the reign of George III that the aforesaid personages lived and quarrelled; good or bad, handsome or ugly, rich or poor, they are all equal now.
