    I get an IEI vibe. What do you think?

    Well, I've never known how to type him, but he's my single most favoritest international political commentator. He's very balanced in terms of entertaining different viewpoints, but has some pretty awesome insights about a wide variety of subject matter. Love his books.

    Well, I guess getting an IEI vibe is not impossible for someone who types himself as LII-IEI, assuming such a type exists.

    He has been obsessed lately with international monetary policy. All in all, it seems his interests can primarily be expressed in Te terms, with gamma Te at the forefront. He appears to feel he has a civic duty to change our perceptions of budgetary policy. However he keeps undermining himself by arguing for reckless cuts in Social Security and Medicare spending, among increasing the retirement ages for Social Security.

    So yeah seems pretty IEI in that he's on the one hand exhorting us to turn over a "new leaf", while on the other insisting that this new leaf reflect his thoroughly impractical beliefs and values.

    Impractical? Maybe politically so, but, come on, do you really have any better budgetary ideas that close the deficit/debt gap that don't do a damn thing about entitlement programs at all? Zakaria's never to my knowledge suggested 'gutting' social security or medicare, but reforming them in ways that responsibly allow us as a nation to lower future expenditures without compromising the overall idea and purpose of these programs is certainly possible. They definitely aren't perfect systems as they stand.

    Easy solution: raise taxes on the rich. He won't say that though because he doesn't want to get fired, ha ha.

    But I really pity the guy... I mean, his primary vocation is the domain of his supervisor. You can imagine how much he gets beat up by those misery LIEs....

    Speaking of LIEs... would not an LIE-IEI see monetary policy as a means to the control of the populace?

    He seems some sort of IN type, I had thought EII for some time. I'm a fan.

    He could also be an IEI, but I don't even see the reserved version of that type as being reserved in the same way Fareed is. I think he has a more rational subdued energy.

    He used Hindu metaphors to criticize lawmaker reluctance to gut entitlements and defense programs, calling them "sacred cows" which are not touched, but might as well be. I mean really he drove that point home for like, 6 months. I got rather sick of it after a while. I mean if he's an EII he's an EII, but his eyes quite frankly strike me as more IEI-ish. He seems more assuming than an EII is like to be comfortable being.

    He's far too independent and opinionated to be an extrovert. I can't recall the last time I saw him ask a question of anyone.

    He once suggested Muammar Gaddafi was on drugs.

    Haha....Come to think of it, that's true to a certain extent. The people (those I have known irl and public figures) whom I like or/and intrigued to find out his/her type are usually from Delta.

    You and me, we've been around the block a few times, done this a time or two. Same wavelengths.

    from his interviews I'd say EIE, I don't see IEI at all - he is strategic, process, Ni-creative and definitely uses Fe and his style resembles descriptions of DA

    he is actually exceptionally attentive to his surroundings in the interviews - at 45 minutes watch him turn the questions around on his interviewer and then smooth it over by paying him a compliment:

    EIE, Ni version

    EDIT: NM... In Zakaria's speech, both here and in watching him on TV, he's referenced "the data" enough times for me to feel convinced that he means it, loves it, lives it... Ni-LIE
