Samfree13, when you said you have tatoos, listen to punk, and sell art pins, that pretty much seals the deal for EII e4.
Thanks for the better description of your ex. I'm still not 100% convinced that he's LSE. Everything clicks (the "dad', the analysis of the nuts and bolts of music, working for the respect of the industry that he's in) except for a couple things. I have a hard time seeing an LSE as being friendly enough or skilled enough with Fe to be a music teacher. Also, when I read that he wanted to hire out the hanging of a picture, I kind of heard clashing chords in my mind. A hammer is crafted onto the hands of LSE's at birth.
I think it's actually more likely that the guy is an ESE, based on the fact that I'm hearing you describe him as a clear extrovert and Caregiver, and with lots of needs for people and little need for logic. This could explain his preference for ISFP's.
For what it's worth, I have a lot of LSE friends and my mother and sister are LSE, and I know a guy who looks almost exactly like an LSE, except he sucks at Te (handling money efficiently) and he's incredibly good at emotional manipulation. So much so that I have a hard time seeing it when it happens. Those were the giveaways that he is ESE. And since I discovered that, he told me that he has taken acting lessons and wants to be on stage in front of an audience. Lol. That is def not an LSE.
I'm glad you weren't offended by my bluntness. I guess that, being an EII, you are immune to Te-assholeishness and low Fi behavior. Thanks. I appreciate the fact that you didn't take offense.
I'd like to add that if your ex actually is ESE, then both you and he are better off if he's off wandering around in the Alpha Quadrant. That frees you up to find that complete jerk of an LSE who will need you like oxygen but will be afraid to admit it. He'll also be eager to hang your pictures on the wall himself.
