American Presidents - 1789-1899

Which presidents are your favorites? How does your personality compare to theirs?

This gallery contains a few spiritual portraits of our presidents in the 1700s and 1800s.

Note: This gallery is a work in progress. Some of the images are based on four-letter-types from other sites and some of the stories are not yet fully developed.

At this time, the seeourminds.com gallery containing images of presidents during the 1900s has the most well-developed and consistently high-quality images and stories.

I frequently wonder whether an individual's personality type has any bearing on how they lean politically. As an idealist, I definitely admire idealistic presidents, such as Jefferson and Lincoln.

Some of these portraits are based on the four-letter type from David Keirsey's book, Presidential Temperament. Thus, the score used to create these is based on fixed percentages, and therefore these images convey limited information and insight compared to other portraits on this site.

For more about this, check out David Keirsey's book. It covers this topic in depth!

I plan to update these images at some point, but first want to focus on adding some images for more recent presidents.
