When B said he's the only one that can save Italy, its also a possibility that B did it as a political tactic. If I am applying for a job at a company, and they ask me why they should hire me, I could reply that "I am the only one that can save the company" as a way to evoke fear into them if they don't hire me and to show them how confident I am in myself, even if deep down I am not. Or it could be because I believe that I can do just that.
It doesn't make sense that someone running for the highest office would ever concede that their opponent could do just as good of a job as them. It sounded like a brilliant tactical statement to a country that may have been disappointed with their current situation and leaders.
I guess what I am saying is that without understanding the true motivation, can we make an accurate assesment of the personality based on the action? After all, the enneagram types are distinguished by motivations when you come right down to it.
