    Se HA and Ti suggestive? (e.g. the way he structures his 48 Laws) EIE-Ni?

    I kind of liked The Art of Seduction, I found it quite creative, it could be a Ni strategy applied to a Fe goal of winning people. Besides, he draws on so many historical figures to give his examples and he is pretty good at building characters out of them.

    I found him typed E5 sx/so somewhere. While I can agree with sx/so, I don't think E 5 is obligatory. How about 3w4.

    I instantly Vi-ed him as LIE sx... Did not read or watch anything, maybe will later and change my mind.. but I am lazy at the moment so..
    Also, looks more 3w4 than 5.

    The same type and enneagram as one of my best male friends...not enneagram 5, 3w4 is much more on track.
    This friend thinks that he and I could be the same type but I dunno - actually I think definately no - most of my male friends think I am the same type as themselves :-)
    This particular friend writes into his diary my dreams/visions when he hears one. He makes a point of letting me know that he's done this and that he is learning from them.
    He pushes his wife a fair bit into the arts with her painting skills and even has her on stage with himself or by herself these days at conferences and training sessions which he runs or partakes in.
    He's the most focused individual I know and have probably ever known personally on humanitarian issues. He's not overly empathetic but he actions ideas and needs in the field.
    He's very focused on creativity, travels a lot and meets often with others doing semi business/semi social/semi ministry over good food, good wine/coffee in nice locations.
    He lets his wife do all house repairs. At the moment she is about to tile in the bathroom, and retile the kitchen splash back. Recently she finished building a pergola, installing a bidet and doing up a son & daughter in laws bathroom which meant even rebuilding walls.

    Hey I own that book.
    Projection is ordinary. Person A projects at person B, hoping tovalidate something about person A by the response of person B. However, person B, not wanting to be an obejct of someone elses ego and guarding against existential terror constructs a personality which protects his ego and maintain a certain sense of a robust and real self that is different and separate from person A. Sadly, this robust and real self, cut off by defenses of character from the rest of the world, is quite vulnerable and fragile given that it is imaginary and propped up through external feed back. Person B is dimly aware of this and defends against it all the more, even desperately projecting his anxieties back onto person A, with the hope of shoring up his ego with salubrious validation. All of this happens without A or B acknowledging it, of course. Because to face up to it consciously is shocking, in that this is all anybody is doing or can do and it seems absurd when you realize how pathetic it is.

    my typing of him from a while back was Ti-LSI, but I could see a decent case being made for EIE. The 48 Laws of Power was a pretty good read, the historical examples really made it.

    for sure

    -He is a good friend of 50 cent (SLE)
    -I think his favourite "historical figure" is Napoleon (SLE)
    -His girlfriend, Anna Biller, seems LSI IMO

    Identicals usually have similar goals and values. Robert Greene is the 21st century Machiavelli. Both are EIE
    ILE "Searcher"
    Socionics: ENTp
    DCNH: Dominant --> perhaps Normalizing
    Enneagram: 7w6 "Enthusiast"
    MBTI: ENTJ "Field Marshall" or ENTP "Inventor"
    Astrological sign: Aquarius

    To learn, read. To know, write. To master, teach.
