    Default John McAfee

    John David McAfee (/ˈmækəfiː/MAK-ə-fee;born September 18, 1945) is a British-American computer programmer and businessman. He founded the software company McAfee Associates in 1987 and ran it until 1994, when he resigned from the company. McAfee Associates achieved early success as the creators of McAfee, the first commercial antivirus software, and the business now produces a range of enterprise security software. The company was renamed to Intel Security in 2011 after being purchased by Intel, though the software still retains the McAfee brand name. McAfee's wealth peaked in 2007 at $100 million, before his investments plummeted in the global financial crisis that began that year.
    He is also a political activist who sought the Libertarian Party nomination for President of the United States in the 2016 election, losing to former New Mexico governor Gary Johnson. McAfee also has interests in smartphone apps, cryptocurrency, yoga, and all-natural antibiotics. He resided for a number of years in Belize, but after being suspected of ordering the murder of his neighbor Greg Faull, he left Belize for Guatemala and later returned to the United States in 2013.

    I get a Gamma impression from him, something like SEE sx/so the 'fireside' strong sx subtype (3w4?).

    I believe EIE-Ni. I do agree with sx 3w4 for enneagram though.

    SEE is interesting, but he doesn't come off grounded in reality enough. He actually comes off quite idiosyncratic and imaginative (). He's also a programmer, into cyber security, crypto, and conspiracy theories, all of which are fairly . Gulenko described EIE as the type most likely to be a "genius". They are usually superb programmers for some reason.

    He is trying to be entertaining and to cultivate an image of an eccentric, but he is going about it in all the conventional ways. I wouldn't say there is anything particularly imaginative about hookers and blow. Programmers come from various backgrounds and don't have to be EIEs.

    The things that he says, however, completely violate the requirements for loyalty in LSI-EIE dyad:

    I think Jack London should be changed to John McAfee. If this dude is not a dominant subtype I do not what makes one a dominant subtype.

    yeah he's a LIE. his unorthodox and rather bizarre behaviour make me lean towards a creative subtype, though.

    He rallies new adventures by connecting people in immediate environment . That is what dominant does. Creative is interested in mental creation by ignoring environment.

    Dominant subtype is supposedly the most closely related to antisocial personality traits. Substance abuse is especially common if they fail and if they do not they have probably gotten to the top by using methods that are highly questionable.

    fair enough. I haven't read much about him in a while so I can't really say more.

    I watched the documentary. My impression is Creative-Dominant. Hard to decide. Usually Dominants have a "warm" "connecting" "intensive" air about them, but McAfee matches more the Creative dullness / disconnectedness (even though Action is never far away). But I can't really decided.
