> He played with his german genes much like Arnie did with his austrian link (Jawohl!), being mildly narcissistic in defaming people of other ethnic or political color. He had good Jewish friends but also poked fun at them; which you can only do when you have quite a bit self confidence (since the publishing industry has quite a strong Jewish lobby)
As you know, " HL " is a favorite on mine! ( " Democracy is the theory that the people know what they want, and deserve to get it good and hard." "Puritanism is the haunting fear that somewhere, someone is happy. " I would type HL as Contrary-Leisurely. His carrer in the USA 1920s was as an iconoclast, a mocker of the stuffy middle class!
He also complied a book of quotations, " A New Dictionary Of Quotations: On Historical Principles From Ancient aand Modern Sources " ,it runs 1347 pages of very small type! He was definitely " an encyclodedic knowledge " type! I would type him Contrary-Leisurely?INTJ. Rich
