oh god, this douche. entx.
A revolution is not a dinner party, or writing an essay, or painting a picture, or doing embroidery; It cannot be so refined, so leisurely and gentle, so temperate, kind, courteous, restrained and magnanimous. A revolution is an insurrection, an act of violence by which one class overthrows the other. Mao Tse Tung
After reading his book Malignant Self-Love I would guess his type as EIE-Fe 8w7. Process/Evolutionary type (link) stood out from his writing as he has a way of over-complicating things. At the end of the book, he created this very elaborate step-by-step system of how the ego, superego, true self and false self interact to create the narcissistic personality, and I kept thinking where in the world is he getting this from. In any case, here is a quote from his blog that sounds rather Fe:
Sam Vaknin: "Human relationships are dynamic. We must assess our friendships, partnerships, even our marriages periodically. In and by itself, a common past is insufficient to sustain a healthy, nourishing, supportive, caring and compassionate relationship. Common memories are a necessary but not a sufficient condition. We must gain and regain our friendships on a daily basis. Human relationships are a constant test of allegiance and empathy."

He's not a psychopath. He seems like an extreme LIE. In this case, empathy would be low but valued, in contrast to say, an SLE, where empathy is both low and not valued.
A more pronunced version of @mfckr comes to my mind. I like Ashton but I can see how other people might find him abrasive at times.
Vaknin is prime example of Se HA gone wrong. LIE. He is pretty good at creating bullshit... no... dinosaur poop dynamically.
Sam Vaknin: SLI E7 or E8. He has weird (and scary) combination of disorders, as he's both a psychopath and a narcissist (NTR)
his wife Lidija Rangelovska is likely SEI-Si, which according to my typing of him as EIE places them in supervision relations and could explain why she says that she has the control in their relationship
there aren't too many good photographs of her but in this one she reminds me of Bjork
Concur with the Fe dom suggestion.
A more candid look at his personality:
