    I think the evil we see in others is in large part projection rooted in the need to see the need for our gifts in the other such that the projection is most "valid" as applied to our dual. thus when we speak of evil we rarely see ourselves for what we are, which I think in the case of EII would actually be a failure of Ti Se, or a more picturesque way to put it would be: the failure to get off the couch. the real EII villian would be the total slob that can't make a coherent impact on anything or anyone... when we talk about the misguided but well intentioned misdeeds we're really talking about our dual and I actually think our vision of that is instructive as to our own type. in other words, EII is psychologically predisposed to find certain things in need of assistance but it is in many ways the projection of the ego's capabilities of offering correction to those who need them most, which would be those people who act in accordance with shared values, but imperfectly. that would be essentially "same" (rather than "other") i.e. fundamentally "familiar" yet "wrong" people (wasp seems to be describing LSE or maybe ILE, to me) etc (i.e. those close enough that our advice would apply to them and is welcome versus to those whom it is alien, even wilting when applied to them: conflictors, etc)

    Dostoevsky himself explores this a bit when he imagines the devil as coming in the form of something we least expect: mediocre, underwhelming, disappointing, etc.. that is the true "evil" in EII

    whereas to be a villain in the traditional storybook sense you already possess a great many heroic qualities, especially if they applied to EII. its hard to imagine an asskicking world changing EII who is also a villian because they wouldn't really be evil... however it is easy to imagine an asskicking world changing SLE who is a villian according to what an EII values. In some sense the nature of entertaining fiction is anathema to creating a centerpiece out of EII as villian, it is in some sense a contradiction...

    an EII villian in fiction would look like heroin, not hero, it would tempt others by lulling them into complacency via a false morality that inured them to their misdeeds and lead them down a road wherein they were self satisfied with an empty existence: essentially using Fi and Ne as a way to justify inaction and lack of positive change to the absolute corruption and degradation of those around them, but not in an aggressive offensive manner, but in a self consumptive totally bland way. think those people in the grocery store you can hardly bear to look at...

    films like requiem for a dream come closest to portraying the darkside of EII as far as I can tell

    Cipher is a perfect example.

    Of course, Hannibal Lecter (EII-Fi):



    Lecter essentially has the same style of information processing as Catherine Trammel.

    Fi cognition is an internal mirror of other people's inner worlds. It would be like having another person inside your skin, that you're constantly introspecting to. Fi has heightened capacity to experience that other person's thoughts/memories/goals/discomforts/impressions and grasp the other persons' psychology as if it were organic to their own. See the car-ride clip from basic instinct. in the meantime, the EII's own thoughts/memories/goals/discomforts/drives are pushed out of cognition and wind up in the PoLR.

    Fi/Ne cognition excels at envisioning/anticipating/forecasting immediate and distant futures for the person....so the possibile ways in which the surrounding context will effect that person's psychology. in the clip you see lecter fishing for information that he can use to deepen his internal mirror of clarice.

    EII vs IEE: The difference between Fi/Ne and Ne/Fi is Fi/Ne is drained by any environment/situation where they aren't directly involved with the person/people they have internally mirrored. Ne/Fi mirroring cognition reflects more the other person's external world and outer responses/inflections but doesn't go as inward. Ne/Fi mirroring changes rapidly from one environment to the next and just mirrors enough to adapt/blend in socially. It's very easy to tell who the EII has in their internal mirror because that's who they will constantly talk and/or wonder about.

    Never really thought a EII would be able to break free of shackles, murder two prisons guards, hall them up into rafters, and skin them. :/

    Look at cognition for socionics type. It's a theory of information processing, not behaviors. Anything goes in terms of behavior.

    Lecter's psychopathic behavior can be chalked up to the fact he's a psychopath. any psychopath would look for an opportunity to escape and have no qualms about murdering the guards...nonetheless the escape plan he devised contained nuances peculiar to Fi/Ne cognition.

    A clear contradiction.

    Betas are always​ the villains.

    This is still more Beta (or Alpha NT, à la Robespierre) than Delta.

    The problem with Deltas is that they're the grounded ones. They make better protagonists than antagonists.

    Stratiyevskaya is generally good at critiquing and giving insight into the less savory motivations of every sociotype. Here, this article cuts fairly sharply into the EII.

    http://wikisocion.net/en/index.php?t...Stratiyevskaya

    As has been mentioned, Stratiyevskaya's storytelling is approximately high level socionics fanfiction.

    Mainly, I find that EIIs can be sometimes: 1) selfish and self promoting and hording of their privileged comforts or of their surface prestige, 2) insecurely toxicly defensive of an uncritical foggy eyed self perception of their own prestige, 3) stagnant and insulated away from radical creative rethinking.

    Unintentional cruelty is probably what that would look more like rather than intentional...

    Nancy Pelosi. I'm pretty sure Beautiful sky is up for something as well.
