    I think he's an EII, probably Enneagram 4

    I doubt that he's an introvert, it's not much to go on but he has stated in previous interviews i've seen that he simply can't do nothing, that he has to constantly keep busy. Anyway this isn't like someone with dominant Si who can spend time doing nothing, it sounds more like an extravert, esp an EJ temperament.

    This isn't rare at all for EII's, there's actually a bit about this in one of the descriptions

    "One of the largest complaints of EIIs revolve around the idea of "wasted potential." A lot of their neuroses, and "drive," come from fears that they are not achieving the maximum possible ideal in a certain field or area of life."

    "EIIs tend to build up stress related to their work-related activities and go overboard in their attempt to be exemplary at work and in all other areas of life. They need people and situations to help them relax and take it easy and forget about their idealism for a while to just enjoy the moment as it is."


    Which leads to often over-working, not knowing if the work is accomplishing what it's supposed to. This is where Te+Si types are needed, to help direct the EII towards accomplishing their goals while also taking into account the need for rest and comfort, thus knowing when to stop working.
    Prior to hearing about Socionics, I would often make comments about efficiency and needing to contribute, not knowing at the time that this was a subconscious "calling out" for help

    btw, I'm not saying Fiennes is in fact an EII (as I don't know enough about him)

    Seems softer than I would have expected for an LSE. Mannerisms, way of speaking, the look in his eyes; I get struck by a great sensitivity.

    I agree with Marie84. I think Ralph Fiennes is EII.
    Ceci n'est pas une eii.

    I'll take an EII like that

    advice on how to do something
    hugs, backrubs, massages, sensual distractions
    someone who'd appreciate/wouldn't take for granted that I do things like cook and keep things functioning/clean
    someone who's perfectionist streak i'd find both cute and respectable.

    Pre-2013 post are written with incomplete understanding.

    That's very sweet, I'm sure an EII girl will be shocked [pleasantly] by this though, like "what?! You want to help me!"
    I know when I first read the LSE descriptions I was definitely shocked that they're people out there that enjoy doing these helpful, nurturing, things for people

    someone who's perfectionist streak i'd find both cute and respectable.
    That's good to know

    God I'm so glad I'm Beta. The only thing that you're going to remember in life is how somebody treated you, not what job they had. Why would you spend your time worrying over an illusion like that?

    Meh. Sorry I just don't get it.

    No you're right, he's an obvious INFj. I had accessed this at work and thought it was Ranulph Fienes, the explorer, hence the ESTj typing possibility. I couldn't access the you tube links. lol @ me for arguing a completely different person, sorry about that.

    I'm sticking to LSI-Ti for the time being. I would consider someone like Day-Lewis and Sharon Stone LSI sx/so (different ennea-types, ofc) ....Fiennes has a more buttoned-up appearance rather than conveying coldish flirtatious nonchalance. He can also almost pass for an "emo" type every now and then which makes me think sx/sp. I see Fiennes as the perfect choice for roles such as the guy in The English Patient or Heathcliff, not Thomas in The Unbearable Lightness of Being.

    I've been thinking on his type... I did consider EII, although I initially thought he must be a logical type, but I am probably too influenced by his acting performances. I think he is introverted rational in any case.

    I still lean EII (if only because he seems E4)... he always struck me as kind of the delta version of ddl
