One Myers-Briggs® celebrity ESTJ Personality Type is political commentator and host of top-rated television program The O’Reilly Factor, Bill O’Reilly.

Looking at the career of Bill O’Reilly illustrates how his Myers-Briggs Test ESTJ Personality Type projects into the national spotlight.

ESTJ Personality Types are known for preferring the logic-based Thinking function. This leads the ESTJ Type to prefer an objective approach to life. When tough is required, they have no problem stepping in and being tough.  (Myers, CPP. 1998) 

Throughout his career, Bill O’Reilly has always been a polarizing figure. In true ESTJ Type fashion, he can come off as aggressive in his viewpoints, and although he is widely considered a conservative commentator, his stated goal is to remain objective in his reporting. The combination of his Extraverted and Judging nature has led him to come off as decisive, self-confident, and outspoken. When he is passionate about his stance, he has been known to come off as overpowering, which has turned off some viewers.

ESTJ Personality Types also gather factual, sense-based information through their Sensing preference. (Myers, CPP. 1998)

This concept manifests itself in Bill O’Reilly’s focus on the present. O’Reilly, channeling his inner Sensing preference, prefers to deal with the real and actual. Combined with his Judging preference, this has led him to create a systemic and procedural method to his reporting that is very by-the-facts. His “accurate” reporting of the facts generally took precedent over any personal ramifications that the targets of his comments may receive.

In 2002, he targeted rapper Ludacris and his lyrics, as well as his sponsor Pepsi. Bill O’Reilly’s strong influences led Pepsi to fire Ludacris the next day. Bill O’Reilly had also been extremely critical of the United Way of America and the American Red Cross of their handling of millions of donations after the September 11 attacks. This all led to actor George Clooney accusing O’Reilly of misstating facts and harming relief efforts by inciting “panic” among many potential donors. It would not be the only time that Bill O’Reilly would be accused of distorting facts or using biased statistics by political opposition.

Individuals may not always agree with Bill O’Reilly, but like the traditional ESTJ Type, people will rarely have to wonder where he stands on a topic.
