    Which one is the IEE's representative according socionics sources?


    Aldous Huxley





    Here pictures and quotes.

    Thomas Huxley







    “Learn what is true in order to do what is right. ”

    “It is not who is right, but what is right, that is of importance. ”

    “Try to learn something about everything and everything about something. ”

    “Make up your mind to act decidedly and take the consequences. No good is ever done in this world by hesitation. ”

    “Science is simply common sense at its best, that is, rigidly accurate in observation, and merciless to fallacy in logic. ”

    “The great thing in the world is not so much to seek happiness as to earn peace and self-respect. ”

    “Science and literature are not two things, but two sides of one thing. ”

    “Freedom and order are not incompatible... truth is strength... free discussion is the very life of truth. ”

    ... I've been living a lie.

    Nah, I knew about this for a while but I was still a little confused. Now to type A. Huxley properly.
    "Lecteur, as-tu quelquefois respiré
    Avec ivresse et lente gourmandise
    Ce grain d'encens qui remplit une église,
    Ou d'un sachet le musc invétéré?


    Charme profond, magique, dont nous grise
    Dans le présent le passé restauré!
    Ainsi l'amant sur un corps adoré
    Du souvenir cueille la fleur exquise"
    Charles Baudelaire

    Oh, that explains a lot. I always thought IEE for Aldous Huxley seemed a bit strange. I personally think he might have been ILI. He happens to be one of my favourite writers, Brave New World is the only classical dystopia that's still relevant in the West to this day.

    While they their names may appear in my own private spreadsheet I started years ago, I don't remember having a particular opinion on either of their types. (I don't think I objected to T.H. Darwin's Bulldog being typed as IEE).
