Why Cleopatra Might be ESTP

By Hannah Strachan Most people would probably type Cleopatra as ENTJ or ENTP, and quite possibly peg her as having a narcissistic style too. For my part, I disagree with all of that. Let’s look a bit at Cleopatra in her proper historical and cultural context. We are not presented with a wealth of information, but nor are we lost in the dark either. We have testimonies from various sources (both negative Roman sources, and more positive ones from the Middle East), and all of them seem to point to a single type.

Why Peter Thiel Might Be INTP

By Hannah Strachan Most people in the typology world seem to type Thiel as some kind of TJ type – INTJ, ENTJ, or ISTJ. However, I believe he is none of those types. In fact, I believe he is INTP. I will offer some pointer to that effect below. Why Thiel shows Ti over Te 1. His “favorite interview question” of asking people what they think is true, but what other people disagree with you on is very Ti. In effect, it’s a seeking of interesting new theories and shows an inherent lack of reverence towards accepted models. Te dominants would probably…
