Seems to me like GBShaw and Fred Nietzsche ... Ennea 5 INTJ?

> Hello Jan:
> HL went to alot of trouble to appear both misantropic and a cynical curmudgeon. At the age of 50, after all his years of knocking women ( " Love is the delusion that one women differs from another." )He was happliy married for 5 years, and was devastated when she died! We have the problem of someone who created a public persona; how well did it match the private person? I think that the C-L/INTJ was the real person, who was quite happy to study & research alot. He also wrote 3 volumes on American English that are very well regarded.... Rich
