From a journalist to a general voters, everyone wants to learn more about their leaders and elected officials and this is what online platform pLookup.com enable with the help of an intelligence algorithm that predicts every individual personality types instantly. No questionnaires. No interviews. No tests. All run by machine. The portal has so far profiled twenty-three world leaders, including Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and American President Donal Trump. The company has categorised world leaders as ambiverts, introverts and extroverts as per their behaviour in public life.
Ambiverts are those leaders who possess a balance of both introverted and extroverted qualities that makes for an ideal leader. A politician who is comfortable dolling out pleasantries on the campaign trail and once elected they are able to effectively internalise and analyse the crucial decisions that directly affect their constituents.
According to pLookup.com, there are eighteen leaders with such qualities. The prominent ambiverts include Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, who is described as reserved and calm and Theresa May, Prime Minister of the United Kingdom who is classified as an ambivert, but she exhibits more extroverted qualities when in the presence of close friends and family. President of the Russian Federation, Vladimir Putin is quick to gather intelligence based on patterns he observes, and he uses that intelligence to confidently make decisions.
Other prominent ambiverts: Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull of Australia, President Xi Jinping of China, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel, President Sergio Mattarella of Italy, Prime Minister Shinzo Abe of Japan, Prime Minister Najib Razak of Malaysia, President Enrique Pena Nieto of Mexico, President Andrzej Duda of Poland, President Klaus Iohannis of Romania, Prime Minister Lee Hsien-Loong of Singapore, President Moon Jae-in of South Korea, Prime Minister Stefan Lofven of Sweden, President Alain Berset of Switzerland, President Tsai Ing-wen of Taiwan, President Petro Poroshenko of Ukraine.
Three introverts were identified from the pool of world leaders. According to their personality profiles, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Norwegian Prime Minister Erna Solberg, both of whom are currently embattled with complex immigration issues, share caring qualities which will likely aid these women for the duration of their leadership positions.
The other introverts is Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi. According to his profile, he uses logic to prioritise what needs to be done, and completes those tasks steadily, even in the presence of distractions. “Modi’s levelheadedness is clearly evident in India’s New Education Policy, enacted shortly after his election in an effort to boost school attendance nationwide,” said portal.
Extroverts identified include US President Donald Trump and French President Emmanuel Macron. New York Times writer Chris Bickerton identified Macron’s personality as an advantage turned disadvantage in a 2017 article, “His entire political project has been far too focused on his personality. Much of his appeal has come from his youth, his dynamism, his good looks and his oratorical skills. This hyper-personalized approach always carried the risk that once his charm wore off, there would be nothing left for his supporters to like, which is exactly what is happening.” Relatedly, Macron’s personality profile describes him as lively, social, and enthusiastic. It appears as though a parallel scenario may be playing out for US President Donald Trump. His personality profile describes him as assertive, outspoken, and challenging. Bravado and notoriety may have been what got Trump elected, but it is unclear as to whether or not his extroverted qualities will aid him when seeking re-election in 2020, said online portal.
