    Default Saddam Hussein

    SLE or LSI.

    A good example of his Beta nature is in his attempt to rebuild Babylon in order to restore Iraq to its former glory. He used the same method Nebachudnezzar II did thousands of year ago; printing his name on every single brick.

    Another incident which also confirms his being a Se-valuing type was after an assassination attempt. He was riding through a town with a motorcade, and after the failed attempt on his life was made, he exterminated the entire town. (This is also a perfect caricature of an unhealthy E8.)

    Also, his methods and extensive use of torture point towards a Se-valuing type.

    Also, FTR, let me point out that I think Hussein is another example of an SLE who is an ESTJ in MBTT, along with Genghis Khan (who ravaged Asia and actually took delight in people's being tortured) and - no aggrandisement intended - me (who has scored as an ESTJ in MBTT tests to no end, and who is most likely if not certainly a Beta ST).
    Ideas don't determine who's right. Power determines who's right. And I have the power. So I'm right.

    Saddam Hussein is LSI. No doubt. His face reminds me Stalin's.

    I actually think he could be EIE. Read his quotes (Google them or something), and they look like he's using Fe in a way an LSI like Stalin did not. They resonate more with people like Hitler (restoring the Iraqi state to its 'former glory') and JFK, both of whom are EIEs.

    Another useful tidbit (that might not be true, as I don't remember my source) is that he tried to make it look like he still had weapons of mass destruction to look powerful and scare away other countries (I think most notably Iran?) but never expected the U.S. to invade over it. (Damn I wish I remember where I read that. )

    Oh no. Poor guy.

    Side note: My friend's boyfriend was a guard of Saddam in his jail cell. He said he was really polite.

    Was this taken while he was a prisoner, or during his dictatorship?

    I think that LSI is much more likely than EIE. On a personal level, he was quick to use brutality in an icy way; he didn't seem to be someone who goes for EIE's Fe mobilization. In all the interviews I've seen of him, he seemed IJ not EJ. He did show some EIE inclinations as Ezra pointed out, but it's not surprising between duals.

    Do you know why this is? It's because Mohammed was an EIE, and a lot of Muslims take him as a role model, and a lot of Arabs are Muslims.
