Myers Briggs type: INTJ
American radio host Alex Jones is an INTJ with a strong supporting Sensing and Feeling function. He might come across as an Extrovert because he talks alot, and Extroverts do talk a lot. But he’s really just a superhigh energy introvert who can’t shut the fuck up.
He’s also highly intelligent, with a highly active mind, which makes him think more and have more things to say. He goes for vacations alone out in the forest – something an Extrovert wouldn’t really do. He’s an iNtuitive, he’s very interested in “the big picture”.
He’s also a Thinker. Although he sometimes comes across as very emotional, which he is, he does have a high ability to digest and absorb objective information and facts. The facts he unleashes upon the radioshow are usually correct, I’ve checked many myself. But he does have a tendency to exaggerate, and sometimes quite a bit.
Alex Jones has, at 39 years old, produced no less than 17 movies. And Obama Deception 2 is on it’s way out. And he’s a radio host.
His two most popular movies are without doubt:
So he’s an Introvert, a iNtuitive, and a Thinker. And as any INTx would be, he’s VERY interested in society, technology, politics, economy, and history. He’s devoted his entire life to those subjects. People that are inherently drawn to technology and history are almost always INTx’s – that is INTP’s or INTJ’s.
The way to know he’s a Judger and not a Peceiver is the way he takes a stand on an issue. When he hears about something new, he basically takes stand right away, every time.
Those are Judging characteristics, as Judgers hate the inbetween space of not knowing, but LOVE having made up their mind about something. Alex Jones is an expert at making up his mind. He always got something to say. He has his own RADIOSHOW goddammit!! =))
He always has an opinion, and it’s usually (perhaps always) a strong one. INTJ’s do very well in radio and is a very common configuration for radio. Radioguy and friend of Alex Jones Mancow Muller is an INTJ as well. Howard Sten is an INTJ.
INTJ’s tend to be a little more in-you-face and have quicker tounge than INTP’s, who praise objectivity and forethough above anything. In radio things happen fast, so being an INTJ is better for that occupation. You can’t really sit in silence and wait 20 seconds to make up your mind in a live radioshow.
If you wonder why Alex Jones seems so different than another INTJ you might know, then look at his Enneagram type. That’s where his intensity, his aggression and his fearlessness comes from.
Enneagram type: 8w7
Alex Jones is an enneagram 8w7. You know this from his aggression, his lack of self-consciousness, and his emotional intensity. He’s also very comfortable with controntation and sometimes even gets a kick out of it. That’s because he’s displaying power, dominance and control – all holy words for 8’s.
8’s talk a lot about “control”, they view their world in terms of being able to control their environment left and right. Ultimate “control” gives them comfort like no other thing can. Alex Jones talks a lot about control and “power trips”, that he claims the cops are on.
The truth is that Alex Jones knows what he’s talking about as he himself occasionally goes on a power trip by beating down a rude guest or screaming into the mike on the radioshow. In Alex Jones’ radioshow, he’s the guy with the mute button and hence – “ultimate control”.
He’s basically a classical 8w7 but with a cerebral touch and interest in science that comes from his INTJ part. He’s also very good at talking, which enneagram 8’s usually are. 8’s are also very good at arguing and winning verbal debates.
Alex Jones also has a strong internal reference system and is uneasily swayed by the currents around him, that too are enneagram 8 charcteristics.
I know he’s an 8w7 and not an 8w9 because of his intensity, energy level and imagination. 8w7’s have are more intense and have way more energy than 8w9’s, who are more mellow and “down to earth”.
8w7’s also have a wilder imagination as they have more right brain half activity (where imagination and creativity lies). Alex is wild. Alex Jones is too intense and too dramatic to be a 8w9, he wouldn’t be bad actor actually when I think about it.
Instinctual variant: Sp/sx
I understand that many people will think “Alex Jones gotta be a sexual primary” but NO! He’s not. Typing him as a sexual primary is a way to explain his intensity, but being an INTJ, 8w7 Self-preservation primary and sexual secondary is enough to explain his intensity level.
Alex Jones is intense, but it is possible to be more intense. In comes comedian and former car salesmal Joez Diaz. Here’s a display of what happens when you combine an:
- Myers Briggs ISTJ
- Enneagram 8wing7
- Sx/sp – that is sexual primary (when you combine 8w7 with sexual primary you get CRAZY WILD MAN!!!!)
- into one man aka Joey Diaz
Although Alex Jones sometimes behaves like a sexual primary, he’s a sexual secondary. If Alex Jones was a sexual primary he wouldn’t be the rock that he is and he wouldn’t have the patience to do what he does. He wouldn’t have the persistence and the consistency that he displays with what he does.
He has built his own media empire, that is some long term thinking involved there. Self-Preservation is good at targeting long term goals, sacrificing the present for the future.
You must also account for the hundrens upon hundreds of books Alex Jones has read. He’s also read hundreds if not thousands of documents. A sexual instinct primary would be bored out of his mind and wouldn’t be able to do it. He would be too restless.
