Myers-Briggs generally considers Bob an INTJ (mastermind) although they have on occasion classified him as an ENTJ (field marshal). Both of these assessments express themselves in Bob's ability to set and achieve long-term strategic goals. Bob's friends describe him as both a creative and analytic thinker; someone who can quickly ascertain the strengths and weaknesses of an idea. Bob would tell you that he is an independent mind who is fascinated by limits, because all of the interesting stuff tends to happen at the boundaries.

Bob currently resides in the Boston area.
