Your Boss and Myers-Briggs

Writing in Portfolio, Deborah Geering considers how some famous bosses would score on the Myers-Briggs personality test and how you may be able to identify your own boss's type. An excerpt:

INTJ Bill Gates is likely an INTJ (Introverted, iNtuitive, Thinking, Judging), according to Ross Reinhold, a consultant who operates Personalitypathways.com. Innovative and independent, Gates and his ilk value competence and self-sufficiency. They have a knack for reducing complexities to their most basic, and for finding efficient ways to improve processes. Unlike ENTJs, INTJs come across as restrained, an image that often reflects their skepticism and lack of emotion in decisionmaking. Although open-minded, they quickly discard unworkable solutions—sometimes with sarcasm.
