Dual type (as per tcaudilllg)
Enneagram 2w1sw(1w9) helps others to live up to their own standards of what a good person is and is very behind the scenes in the process.

I'm constantly looking to align the real with the ideal.I've been more oriented toward being overly idealistic by expecting the real to match the ideal. My thinking side is dominent. The result is that sometimes I can be overly impersonal or self-centered in my approach, not being understanding of others in the process and simply thinking "you should do this" or "everyone should follor this rule"..."regardless of how they feel or where they're coming from"which just isn't a good attitude to have. It is a way, though, to give oneself an artificial sense of self-justification. LSE
Best description of functions:
i know most writers are NFs, and even more are NFj's (MBTI NFP). here's something i found at The Psychology of Creative Writing - Cambridge University Press
"I administered the MBTI to a group of 15 successful women writers and to a comparison group of 15 female elementary school teachers. Two strong patterns emerged. In agreement with the IPAR data, most of the writers preferred Intuition (N) and Perception (P). As Myers and McCaulley said, “Data from the world is received in ways that go beyond the senses and that they preferred to see patterns, relationships, and meaning in all they perceive” (1985, p. 135). Seventy-five percent of the women writers preferred the NF (Intuition Feeling or NT (Intuition Thinking) combination, in contrast to only 20% of the comparison group of elementary school teachers. Instead, like most elementary teachers, the comparison group of teachers preferred the SF combination (Sensing and Feeling; Piirto, 1998c). Women in the general population are more likely to prefer Feeling than Thinking, and that is why the instrument itself has separate templates for males and females when scoring those preferences (also see Myers & McCaulley, 1985); this was true for the comparison group as well as for the women writers.
My research confirms what was found by Barron (1968a), who indicated that the writers he studied also preferred Feeling and Intuition: The writers were “distinctly more introverted than extraverted, more feeling than thinking, and more intuitive than oriented to sense experience” (pp. 237, 245). Since the IPAR study included more men than women writers, the results here show that there seem to be no great gender differences in personality type preferences, indicating that the “sun” of gender may be environmental, as postulated in my Piiramid of Talent Development (see Figure 1.1)."
looking at his pictures he looks like an IEI. Reading his writings he sounds like an IEI.

ILI or SLI
probably IEI, maybe EIE, can't really see ILI.
Mortal, mortal, what would you
With that beauty once was yours?
Perishable is the dew,
And the dust endures.
