“Take someone/ something for example” would normally be rephrased as “take for example someone/ something” when the object “someone/ something” is too lengthy to be sandwiched in between the transitive verb “take” and the prepositional phrase “for example” to make the phrase unclear.
Take the following sentence for example:
Take for example Nobi Hayashi, a journalist and author of Steve Jobs: The Greatest Creative Director.
The lengthy object “Nobi Hayashi, a journalist and author of Steve Jobs: The Greatest Creative Director” would normally bring up the rear and be put on the back burner.

都可以,但後者較常用,例如 Take the following sentence, for example: "ChToEn just opened its own forum."

Thanks for your interpretation.
賴韋翰 2015-06-13 09:42:02
Should there be commas between the words?
Take, for example, Nobi Hayashi, a journalist and author of Steve Jobs.
Or they can be omitted?

Either way will do.
1. Without a pair of commas: (more concise)
Take for example Nobi Hayashi, a journalist and author of Steve Jobs.
2. With a pair of commas: (clearer)
Take, for example, Nobi Hayashi, a journalist and author of Steve Jobs.
The same reasoning also applies to “take into account/ consideration someone/ something” and the like.
