Abstract

This study combined analytic tools from rhetorical criticism with the predictive power of David Barber's "The Presidential Character" in order to modernize this famous work. Through the analysis of press conference speech from ten different presidents, this study found that there are tangible links between predicted personality and expressions of self.
