    Default Canadian politicians

    I expect this thread to be far less popular than the British Politicians thread. Nevertheless, here are my very shaky typings. Even shakier typings have (?) next to them:

    Liberal Party (centrist)

    Pierre Trudeau - no clue. Merry / logical / intuitive / extrovert (?), ILE (?) > IEE(?)

    Paul Martin - SEI (?)
    YouTube - Former Canadian Prime Minister: Give Up Your Sovereignty To Make The World Work

    Brian Mulroney - EIE
    YouTube - Brian Mulroney tells Peter Newman to "Go **** yourself"

    Jean Chretien - IEI
    YouTube - Jean Chretien "Face Ad"

    Conservative Party (conservative)

    Stephen Harper - LSE
    YouTube - Family is Everything: Harper

    Stockwell day - Fi valuing IJ, ESI (?)
    YouTube - Stockwell Day

    NDP (socialist)

    Jack Layton - Beta
    YouTube - NDP Home Heating Campaign - Canada

    I agree with all of these typings except perhaps Chretien. I'm not sure what I would type him, but for some reason IEI doesn't sit well with me.

    EDIT: Also, thank-you for linking the hilarious Harper ad from 2008. Pure gold.

    I'd say Trudeau was Beta, probably EIE. He had that stereotypical Beta NF "political rockstar" vibe going. I'm fairly confident of this typing.

    I'd guess Paul Martin was some kind of Gamma. His focus was finances, and he balanced the budget. Some Te type, anyway, I think.

    Mulroney could be EIE like you said. Very low confidence here.

    Chretien, I'm not sure at all, but could he have been Gamma SF? ESI or something? He was more of a rough-and-tumble slugger than Trudeau, who was "loftier" and more intuitive, which suggests an Se type for Chretien, to me. On the other hand, it would make sense if Martin and Chretien were not in the same Quadra, given the long rivalry between them.

    I definitely agree that Harper is LSE. His style of Prime Ministership is very different from the other Beta-Gamma types.

    Stockwell Day: I really can't tell. Some kind of Rational type, perhaps.

    Jack Layton could be IEI. He's sort of a wannabe Trudeau.

    Stephane Dion I think was IEI. The disconnected-from-reality geeky kind of IEI.

    The other type I considered was SLI.

    Can I ask why? I think Harper tries to project an LSE "image" but I ultimately think him not an LSE.
    Ceci n'est pas une eii.
