Jung in the early phases of his career didn't denounce the Hitler regime; but later he stepped back from the chairmanship of the international organisation of psychologists when the fascist influence became too strong. Insight into the psyche of Hitler wouldn't have made him 'Man of the Year' by Times magazine and wouldn't have allowed the British appeasement policy towards the two continental dictators.
Let's apply the MBTI on Hitlers character:
a. introversion vs extraversion:
introversion: he was such a closed personality with regard to his personal feelings and thoughts that Eva von Braun and her predecessor tried to commit suicide several times because of lack of response on the part of Hitler
b. sensing vs intuition:
sensing: Hitler didn't see advantages in Werner von Braun's rocket program or in jet fighters or in nuclear weapons. He put money into the tried and tested tanks and other conventional weapons.
c. thinking vs feeling:
Feeling: Hitler made many decisions on emotional hunches instead of on cool rationailty and facts; very impulsive and based on subjective feelings. He lost the battle in Russia because he send his troops to the oil wells in the Ukraine; when his generals pointed to the facts; rationality would have made him send the thrust of his force to Stalingrad immediately to prevent Stalin's re-grouping his forces and buildup of weapons send by the Americans.
d. judging vs perceiving:
perceiving: Eva von Braun even wasn't allowed to change the color of her hair and the way she dressed. His daily walk and cup of tea when he was at the Eagles Nest was absolutely compulsive behavior.
ISFP makes him a probable E6.
