What is the Elon Musk Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI)?

"THEY" <_ <DO NOT WANT ME TO READ THIS.

First of all I am an INTP; my dad and brother are INTJs so I know the difference between these two guys like the back of my hand.

Elon is definitely an INTP, his behavior alone is evidence enough of that. An INTJ radiates confidence and has a rigid, commanding demeanor; they always try to act mature, etc. While an INTP, on the other hand, is more witty and aloof in his demeanor, a playful type of child if you like; they are proud to start off immature, etc.

Once you realize this fundamental and vital difference between an INTJ and an INTP, it will be clear as day that Elon is an INTP just by watching one of his interviews.

1

ACHIEVEMENT CANNOT BE USED TO PREDICT THE TYPE OF PERSONALITY:

Basing your estimate of Elon as an INTJ based on his achievement is simply illogical basis for estimating his personality, and rather sloppy. If I've learned anything in life, it's that genuine motivation, inspiration, and willpower trumps any other personality trait when it comes to achieving goals. So to say that an Elon is not an INTP because he does shit is frankly a fucking statement (I'm not going to curse to keep this respectful and logical) It is a fact that Bill Gates is an INTP. however, he built one of the most successful companies in history.

2

BEHAVIOR (AND MENTALITY) IS A MUCH MORE PRECISE KILLER OF THE TYPE OF PERSONALITY:

Behavior on the other hand is something that is almost impossible to change or even hide, it is expressed in the way you speak, move… everything. And Elon Musks behavior is 100.0000000% INTP. He is careless, distant, contradicts himself in the same sentence simply to express the correct answer, etc., an INTJ will never allow themselves to be unprepared, especially in something like an interview that they consider so vital to their public image (that they would do ). value as they care about your image / understand your value), while an INTP, on the other hand, wouldn't really give a ****. Watch Elon's interview, or just read about his lack of punctuality and the fact that he is an INTP would be as clear as day. He showed up to a Tesla event hours late and didn't even apologize (an INTJ NEVER, I repeat,

INTP CAN MAKE SHIT; IF THEY WANT. (So ​​stop spreading the ignorant notion that INTPs can't be effective):

Frankly, as INTP, I believe that the "dogma" surrounding INTPs and achievements is not only inaccurate but dangerous not only to INTPs personally, but to the world, due to the revolutionary role of INTP (INTPs are essential to break the boundaries of civilization to advance the world, i.e. Da Vinci, Einstein, Newton)

His whole argument that Elon is an INTJ is based on the fact that he actually does things and that an INTP cannot do things. The level of inaccuracy in that thinking is simply ignorant. And as an INTP who is an entrepreneur running 3 companies at once, it really irritates me when people say INTPs don't get things done.

Yes, I would say that our natural tendency is to get lost in theory and abstraction, but if an INTP decides that they must act, believe me they will.

HOW SHIT CAN INTP'S (Ti Ne) MAKE:

All they need to do is apply their extraverted intuition to visualize the future and their introverted thinking function to think about how to achieve it. With this simple slant on the function of their skills, INTPs can easily accomplish anything.

The perfect analogy to introverted thinking is like a computer that can break things down and put them back together into infinite pieces to create innovative things, although its default focus in INTP is to understand facts and theories, if an INTP decides to act on this computer. It can be used to analyze the external environment and decipher endless strategies on how to do “ANYTHING”, be it to start a business or whatever. This computer program coupled with extroverted intuition (the genius / visionary idea generator) makes it one of the most versatile “toolkits” one can have. If you really take the time to understand the functions of the INTP, you will find that if they decide to do the work of an INTJ, they will do it in a way that will baffle an INTJ. I can't count how many times' I've made an INTJ look so dumbfounded that they just left the room, seeing an INTJ realize they're not as smart as they think is a rare hobby of mine. (That's why I feel like this dogma about INTP being lazy and not doing shit is so dangerous; INTP NEEDS TO WAKE UP THE VAGINA AND START DOING IT)

PayPal, Tesla and SolarCity are companies created from extraverted intuition (visualizing the future) and introverted thinking (logically creating strategies and steps to align the present with that future)

I mean, you do realize that Bill Gates is an INTP, right? That fact alone demolishes the basis of his logic for writing Elon as an INTJ.

* Honestly, I felt the need to point this out, because the confidence with which people describe their ignorant estimates of Elon as an INTJ really annoys me.

Also feel free to correct me if you think I am wrong, so that I can dismiss your claims with facts.

First, I suspect that it is an E, not an I, although it is also possible that it is an I. It is a close call.

True introverts don't need a lot of attention from others. They're just happy in their own space, and while we all need some attention, it's a small amount for an introvert. Most of us feel uncomfortable with too much attention and when we receive it, we tend to withdraw for a while to avoid getting too affected by it. Musk actually seems to crave attention, so here's why I think he might be an extrovert.

Generally speaking, there are two types of Es. The first type of E is the one that most of us

First, I suspect that it is an E, not an I, although it is also possible that it is an I. It is a close call.

True introverts don't need a lot of attention from others. They're just happy in their own space, and while we all need some attention, it's a small amount for an introvert. Most of us feel uncomfortable with too much attention and when we receive it, we tend to withdraw for a while to avoid getting too affected by it. Musk actually seems to crave attention, so here's why I think he might be an extrovert.

Generally speaking, there are two types of Es. The first type of E is what most of us think of as E; the friendly gregarious. The extreme of this version is the naturally good politician / actor that everyone likes and talks about positively after meeting them. Kennedy, Bill Clinton, Obama, or in the acting realm, George Clooney and Keanu Reeves (although Reeves might be a nice introvert). These people have been liked by everyone, often since they were children. They just know how to make people relax in their presence. I had a co-worker like this one time in the first regular job I had and it was really a strange experience. I have always been introverted and in new circumstances, often clumsy or shy. Somehow, in the presence of this person, I was neither of those things. I magically relaxed when he was around, almost becoming outgoing. It's like some kind of weird superpower with the extreme of this kind of extrovert.

The other type of extrovert wants people to like him and wants to be much closer to people (as opposed to introverts), but in general they are not pleasant; in fact, they often dislike others because their lack of ideas about socially appropriate behavior and lack of empathy for others, even though they are outgoing, makes them ostentatiously obnoxious. It is notable here that Musk was bullied and apparently thrown down the stairs when he was in school in Canada (Wikipedia). Maybe this was just a case of kids being mean to the stranger from South Africa, but it's rare for nice extroverts to have this problem. Nasty extroverts, however, often don't have real friends, because they're just not nice,

The extrovert who doesn't like it often sees power as a way of forcing others to pay attention to them; a way to force others to tolerate their social ineptitude and put others down for not appreciating them, rather than considering the possibility that they are just idiots. However, if they gain power, they are obnoxious on a much larger scale. Trump and Hitler are excellent examples of this type. The only "friends" they have are the worst parasites, utterly lacking in morality, generally unsavory and dangerous in their own right, and willing to do whatever it takes to gain a small degree of power for themselves. Stephen Miller, the only one of Trump's advisers who has not been fired, is a prime example of such parasites,

If the extrovert who doesn't like him never gains power, he seems introverted because no one likes to be around him and he is often alone. Remember what Stormy Daniels said about Trump, how he was alone in his hotel room watching Shark Week? This is what happens with obnoxious extroverts. They are angry and difficult people because they cannot get the social interaction they crave from others, and when they cannot force others to spend time with them, they are lonely, unhappy, angry, and often conspiring against the world.

Elon Musk seems to be a very smart version of this kind of extrovert, rather than an introvert. Actually, he wants social attention and is not very nice in one-on-one interactions, he uses power, money and social media to get the attention he desperately needs from others. His frequently awkward and ill-advised tweets and use of social media are very similar to Donald Trump's tweets. No wonder he became a Trump fan, at least once Trump became president and gained the power that belongs to whoever holds that office. Musk is even similar to Trump in his insults (remember the "fart boy" comment?) When someone disagrees with him. Because of the power that Musk's money and businesses have given him, many people tolerate his social ineptitude, but any apparent introversion is probably a function of being obnoxious. instead of being truly introverted. Musk likes the spotlight and attention and sees himself as superior to most others; This is not a true introvert.

N versus S. Musk is probably a smooth S, with some intuitive features, or a smooth N with lots of S features: a tweener. People often say that Musk is an engineer, but that is not correct. According to Wikipedia, his undergraduate education from the University of Pittsburgh was a dual major in economics (Wharton) and physics. He was admitted to Stanford for a Ph.D. program in physics, but dropped out after two days to pursue his business interests. To a large extent, he is an exceptional multi-tasking manager with a great talent for selecting brilliant people for research and design and a fierce energy to manage and push his manufacturing teams to complete projects while eliminating red tape and red tape in the field. administration that inhibit production.

While his various interests are similar to INTPs, the way he behaves within those interests is nothing like INTPs, let alone an INTJ. He is not trying to understand a wide variety of things to grasp theories that represent a movement towards Truth. You are looking for all the various practical ways that you can achieve a vision that you have that is quite rigid and relies heavily on the best accepted authorities found on the books. Practicality and making money are not characteristics of INTP thinking and, in fact, Musk's views in certain areas are not personally creative at all. They sound smart and are based on exceptional authority, but that's different from being personally and genuinely creative. INTJs can look a lot like INTPs to others,

In the interview below, Musk talks briefly about the brain, comparing the limbic system and the cortex. His views are essentially Freudian. The limbic system is the Id and the cortex comprises both the Ego and the Superego. You have clearly read literature, including more modern literature that stems from Freud's roots, and you can describe your ideas in a way that makes sense, but you have not deeply considered your own mind and whether Freud and the progeny that Freud created, could have been completely wrong.

Freud's thinking provides the psychological basis for the intellectual elitism of Nietzsche, Ayn Rand, Daniel Dennett, and many others, and I am sure Musk has read many of their writings. Musk may even believe that most humans, except himself of course, simply have underdeveloped computers (cortex) on top of their Id (limbic system), and humanity would be better off without these little computers (people ...) developed. But this type of thinking is actually very mechanical in its substance, application, and conclusions. You are too busy advancing your practical solutions within a wide variety of areas to care whether your elitist views actually reflect the Truth on a deeper level. It is this last trait,

T or F. It's obviously in T, so I don't think this requires any discussion.

J or P. Musk is a J. He's as stiff as can be. This is not hippy or gypsy, open to a wide variety of non-traditional ideas in many areas of life. Yes, you are open to creative thinking in science, but science has blinders on both sides; it is necessarily rigid, so wild creativity is not really allowed within the realm of science. The rigidity of these blinders in science is why two famous INTP scientists struggled; Einstein, with his own way of approaching everything, and Schrodinger, with his haggard appearance and loveless approach to sex and romance. Many areas of life are not like science; areas such as art, sex, love of children and friendship,

Musk's discussion of sex in the video above is a great example. He sees sex as two things (1) for procreation and (2) sexual pleasure, that's all. What you have apparently never realized is that sex affects many other areas of human life and interaction, that it can improve who we are as human beings in general, how we care for each other, how we interact with the world in general. , how we see morality. . Sex is definitely not just about procreation, but you have to consciously let go (relax the cerebral cortex) to feel and understand these other qualities that sex can provide. Musk doesn't see it because he values ​​the cortex (the human computer) and conscious thinking so much, that he can't put it down long enough to see if he could be wrong.

Another obvious sign of a J instead of a P is organization and of course getting things done. INTPs are notorious for terminating nothing. One of the really amazing things about Musk is his ability to see things through to completion and keep others around him on task to carry out his plans. In our modern world, these are traits that lead to monetary success in life, but they are NOT traits of most INTPs. These are usually INTJ traits.

Lastly, one of my favorite places to look when discerning a J versus P is the office. As a lawyer, I worked with a couple of INTJs (they are often very good lawyers), and their offices were always meticulous, no matter how busy they were. One was a close friend of mine and that is why he knew that his house was the same. My office, on the other hand, was a constant and complete mess, unless my secretary came in and organized it for me. The last office I had as a lawyer, I didn't hang a single thing on the walls.

So with that in mind, let's take a look at Einstein's office compared to Elon Musk's office.

Musk's office is the office of a J if I ever saw one.

You may, of course, just have a good secretary constantly keeping your things in order, or cleaning your office before the photos are taken, but I doubt it. I suspect his office always looks neat and organized, and he knows where every little thing is.

So it could be an ESTJ, an ENTJ, or an INTJ, but it is not an INTP.

When people talk about Elon being INTJ or INTP, they focus on what he says / does and how this relates to Ni-Te or Ti-Ne. And that's right, the first 2 cognitive functions are the most important and the most used. I will not go into that as it was covered by many.

I'll cover a different angle.

What most of us see is a public person, what he wants us to show and say, and not what he is like when he is alone, when he thinks or makes decisions.

Also, a 20-year-old INTJ or INTP is not the same as one over 40, so textbook definitions of each type are difficult to map.

I'll cover a different angle.

What most of us see is a public person, what he wants us to show and say, and not what he is like when he is alone, when he thinks or makes decisions.

Also, a 20-year-old INTJ or INTP is not the same as one over 40, so textbook definitions of each type are difficult to map.
Because in 20 years everyone develops the opposite side of their personality (also called lower cognitive functions).

And for introverts, that's their extrovert side.

So an INTJ will learn to interact with the world like an ESFP (which has the same 4 cognitive functions as INTJ but in reverse) and the INTP will develop a bit like ESFJ (the "reverse" of INTP).

And I would say that mature introverts like Elon Musk or Bill Gates show us a very well-crafted public persona that is shaped by the opposite side of their personality. And what they show us serves the purposes of their introverted core.

So let's judge that.

ESFP (think Marilyn Monroe) is an erratic personality, craving attention, taking drugs, breaking taboos, while ESFJ is one of the more conservative personalities, a family man / woman who is interested in showing status / money / houses / cars .

And Elon's public persona is almost typical of ESFP: appearing on TV shows, using marijuana, appearing barefoot in videos, starting fights on Twitter.

While Bill Gates takes on the personality of ESFJ. Always dress in a conventional way, shirt and sweater, conventional glasses. Show the status with a super expensive house, which was built to your own requirements (acoustic system for the pool, which may be more useless than that, but helps show the status) driving Porsche, (which appears to be) the man from family.

So the "image" they take couldn't be more different. That is why I say that Elon Musk is INTJ and Bill Gates is INTP.

From all my reads I would label it INT *. I know that the J / P debate is going to come and go with a certain slant towards our own functions. As a P, my vote is in favor of INTP and I think the videos posted by Vishal Devgire are perfect examples of INTP. I can't see an INTJ claiming they have no filter. That's a very particular trait of * NTP, along with the mischief and playfulness. Glad no one wrote it as ENTP so far, which is something I see often.

"Well, I have a problem with punctuality."

Elon Quote:

"Well, I have a problem with punctuality."

-totally not an INTJ trait.

From an article by the squire:
“I knew of a great-uncle in Montreal, he got on a flight and hoped for the best. Upon landing in June 1988, Musk found a pay phone and tried using directory assistance to find his uncle. When that didn't work, he called his mother collect. I had bad news. Maye had sent the uncle a letter before Musk left and received a reply while her son was in transit. The guy had gone to Minnesota, which meant Musk had nowhere to stay. Bag in hand, Musk headed to a youth hostel.

After spending a few days in Montreal exploring the city, Musk tried to come up with a long-term plan. Maye had family members scattered across Canada, and Musk began to reach out to them. He bought a nationwide bus ticket that allowed him to hop on and off whenever he wanted for a hundred dollars, and opted to go to Saskatchewan, his grandfather's former home. After a 1,900-mile bus ride, he ended up in Swift Current, a city of 15,000 people. Musk called a second cousin out of nowhere from the bus station and asked to be driven home. "

again, this is so anti-INTJ and so harsh INTP. Go to Canada on a whim without any plans. Spend the next few years living life on a whim, but still with intention. I think that as we mature, we start to mix with other typologies simply because we start to be more diverse and experienced in solving our problems. Elon was 17 here so his J should have been very obvious. It just isn't there. Even the phrase "tried to come up with a long-term plan ..."

Life history of each INTP. :P

INTJ and not INTP, why?

Well, the INTJ will really do shit.

INTJ: Ni, Te, Fi, Se.

INTP: Ti, Ne, Si, Fe

Please don't say that I am an INTJ 2 years ago, but I have become an INTP. It doesn't work that way at all. We all have natural preferences and we learn to adapt as we grow.

INTJs are considered masterminds who view life as a chessboard and constantly want to improve. They value intellectual superiority and the desire to improve the environment around them. They are great visionaries and, with the right time and experience, they will form a very focused vision of what they want to achieve in 10-20 years.

They are great visionaries and, with the right time and experience, they will form a very focused vision of what they want to achieve 10-20 years from now. They know what will happen. It looks very voodoo and mystical, but yeah, that's how it works.

Many Ni users constantly say that when they are interested in a particular topic, they will constantly ponder and think about it and form impressions on that topic itself. Trying to link billions of things about it. All of this information goes to their subconscious and over time, when they see something that has similar traits to the topic in the past, they are somehow able to link to it and make an accurate prediction of what is going to happen. This is due to the intense analytical thinking process that takes place.

This is what happens in your unique mind. When it comes to getting things done, they trust what works, is efficient, and is tested in the real world. This makes them less dependent on 'What if ...?' And they just sit at their table thinking, like Socrates. If they have a vision they want to realize, big or small, they work towards it based on what is already available.

Elon Musk has been in the engineering space from a young age and also started coding. It was very action oriented and it produced results. He did not seek to reinvent the wheel. He sought to make a difference in humanity with tangible results. These are all very clear INTJ traits.

Another INTJ is Nikola Tesla, who was also an engineer. He revolutionized electricity with real experiments, tools and equipment. All tangible with results.

An INTP, on the other hand, is quite different.

They value knowledge and seek to understand the world for what it is and what makes sense. I would consider them the better book reader than the INTJ.

The INTP's ability is that it can clean up cutting information and point out flaws in theories and facts very specifically. For them, accepting what is already available just because no one can prove it wrong is not in their dictionary.

If they are interested in something, they will probably seek to find the truth to the ends of the earth. With great attention, they think of new concepts and theories that can be applied to the root system.

Take, for example, Albert Einstein, who was an INTP. Do you notice the differences between Elon Musk?

Einstein was a great theorist who dabbled in physics and generated many theories and formulated the theory of relativity. You don't see Elon Musk constantly writing about spaceships or paypal, do you?

Both the INTJ and the INTP are very independent and highly intellectual. But their description of knowledge differs greatly. They have a lot of confidence in their minds and when talking to them, if you don't know what you're doing but act like you do, prepare to be shot down by a billion words. They also do not value the bureaucracy and the figures authorized by their rank. They value real talent in knowledge or skill. They also love honesty.

INTJs have been known to say things like, "If I love you as a person, I would be directly honest with you, because what's the point of lying?" I think INTPs belong to the same segment, but they tend to be in their own world most of the time.

I hope this helps.

I am an INTJ and have taken many personality tests and never got a result that ended with P. So I can tell you why Elon Musk is an INTJ.

Introverted intuition is represented by how elon musk is really focusing on the root cause of the pros and cons of technology and the future problems of people who then make a difference.

See Extraverted Thinking (Te) is represented by what Elon Musk did or will do for the world, like sending people into space, electric cars, etc.

And sensitive introvert because he keeps all his feelings inside, and he is very light when he talks about his feelings.

And sensitive introvert because he keeps all his feelings inside, and he is very light when he talks about his feelings.

Finally, the extraverted perception as the last undeveloped function, because he cannot take a bus, as his sister used to say.

I also have an INTP cousin and an ENTP brother and they are both much more practical than me in day-to-day things like bringing things, taking the bus and stopping at the correct platform, etc.

Even though Elon Musk is a good communicator and a confident-looking person, his voice gets worse depending on the number of people he's talking to. As if he were speaking without pauses in front of a person or a camera, but he pauses 2 or 3 each time he says something when he is in front of the stage. It even keeps "getting better". This paragraph shows that you are confident but insecure but still want to improve. (an Intj thing).

Whereas INTPs generally never like to go on stage and generally only expose themselves to people while teaching scenarios.

Although all this proves that Elon Musk is a slightly arrogant INTJ guy.

I will go against the status quo of saying you are an INTJ. Instead, I think a lot of what he says screams INFJ at me. Like an INTJ, an INFJ also leads with Ni (Introverted Intuition). This leads him to create worlds in his head. Everything you do seems to be planned to lead to a central vision that you have. He is also so absorbed in the things that he is passionate about. Unlike other guys (INTP), he gets things done on his schedule, without getting sucked into the fun science behind it.

So far what I have said could describe an INTJ or an INFJ, but here I am going to focus on the differences. its

So far what I have said could describe an INTJ or an INFJ, but here I am going to focus on the differences. His whole mantra is that he wants to make planet Earth a better place. You may be running a technology company, but you have a very people-centered purpose behind doing it. That's something INFJs definitely have. Now, I'm not saying that INTJs can't care about people, but they're generally not as motivated by people's problems as INFJs. The fact that it has opened all of Tesla's patents proves it even more. He wants electric cars in the world to improve the world we live in.

Now he could get all of this wrong and he could be an incredibly developed INTJ (which is very possible). Those are just my thoughts on why I think he's an INFJ and a very developed one at that.

I think it is on the border between INTJ and INTP, but actually I think technically it is on the INTP side of the fence, if I were to take an MBTI assessment.

Zuckerberg, Bezos, Bobby Fischer - Now they are more likely INTJs. They stick to one thing. They are in focus and they are narrower.

On the other hand, Musk doesn't stick to one thing, he dabbles in many different things throughout his career. He dreams of many new inventions, most of which will probably never be made. INTJs are not as creative as INTPs in this way.

I think he is just a mature and motivated INTP, who can work hard to achieve his goals.

Also, given his genetic makeup and inheritance from his parents, I think this likely makes him an INTP as well.

Elon Musk is an INTP for the simple reason that an INTJ could NEVER be mistaken for an INTP, but an INTP can sometimes look like an INTJ, especially when they decide to do shit: D. INTJs are smart and serious people, but never they will make dad jokes between serious interviews, for example; Elon's mind is very creative (INTP trait) and crazy enough (INTP trait) to dare (INTP risk trait) to go to Mars. He is not really interested in the fact / result but in the idea of ​​making it possible; You are very eager (intp but definitely not intj trait) to accomplish one thing in order to do another.

This is not the INTJ boss profile at all. I know the INTJ profile very well, which is why I know it is not, even though I am INTP, and one of the main reasons I like it is that it does not act like INTJ at all: D, like these big headed smart guys: Bill Gates , Zuckerberg, etc ...: p

I think most people who understand MBTI would agree that Elon is a definite "I", an "N" and a "T", but the "J or P" is controversial.

Personally I think he is an INT "P" based on two public records, ie
(1) Elon has publicly encouraged people to be more open to criticism, a very typical P trait.
(2) Elon is homeless in Silicon Valley and occasionally needs to get into Larry Page's house, I bet most J people won't do that.

INTPs are more open to ideas. It is difficult to run two sophisticated companies without an open mind.

P / s: I can be biased as I am also an INTP.

It is quite rare for an individual to be strongly unbalanced in all 4 categories. If you survey a large number of people, more than half will have at least one category in which they fall in a well-balanced environment.

It is quite rare for an individual to be strongly unbalanced in all 4 categories. If you survey a large number of people, more than half will have at least one category in which they fall in a well-balanced environment. The better adapted you are, the more you can "wear both hats." Just as it is common for a person to strongly favor one category over another, it is also very common for there to be a healthy balance in another.

It is the opinion of this INTP, that both INTJ and INTP would love to claim the seer Elon Musk as one of their own, but the fact of the matter may be that he is INTX. It would make sense for him to be undecided in this category. After all, he clearly has some discipline. Discipline could also be black magic for someone who is strongly "P", and he is clearly "insane", the kind of insanity that makes the INTP giggle knowingly, but which the strongly "J" will ever find strange. .
