Summary: Aubrey Immelman, director of the Unit for the Study of Personality in Politics at St. John’s University in Minnesota, said Mitt Romney may be overcompensating for his inability to connect with regular people. “Romney is neither an introvert nor an extravert,” said Immelman. “The key is his conscientiousness. People who are highly conscientious are just not good campaigners. He might be a good executive, but campaigning is his Achilles’ heel.”
Summary: A psychological analysis of former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney, conducted in fall 2007 by Julie Seifert, Mick Lundstrum, and Aubrey Immelman, Ph.D., at the Unit for the Study of Personality in Politics revealed that Romney’s primary personality pattern is Conscientious/dutiful, with secondary features of the Dominant/asserting and Ambitious/confident patterns — a personality pattern that does not predict presidential electoral success.
