What Personality Type is Angela Merkel?
This rare female leader has accomplished many firsts.
Posted Jul 17, 2012
Her stance against nuclear power was inspired by the disaster in Japan. Germany hopes to achieve 50 percent of its power from wind, water, solar and thermal energy by 2030. Reaching this goal has been slowed, however, because of the financial crisis in Europe.
This quote of Merkel’s sounds like a Perfectionist wanting to do things right, but the other information we have about her indicates it has more to do with the Asserter’s role of enforcing what needs to be done:
There is pressure on the financial markets, that cannot be denied ... Some countries are in a very complicated situation. There was an interest here to find solutions. My task was to see to it that the solutions respect the procedures and rules that we have...- Bloomberg.com 2012-06-29
Germany has had a problem with migrants from other countries. In 2010 Merkel told a meeting of younger members of her party that attempts to build a multicultural society in Germany had failed: “The concept that we are now living side by side and are happy about it does not work" and "we feel attached to the Christian concept of mankind, that is what defines us. Anyone who doesn't accept that is in the wrong place here." One news source quoted her as saying immigrants should integrate and adopt Germany's culture and values. Another said members of her cabinet and Merkel herself are introducing Islamic education and classes in schools.
