I would type Mencken as a 9W8, Contrary-Leisurely & Conscientious & Aggressive. His Ennea type had a strong 8 wing.... His vast, high quality productivity shows not only the " encyclopedic knowledge " aspect, but a work oriented, get the job done right attitude. He had expressed opinions on a vast number of subjects, but alot of that was the Aggressive love of making trouble, so you are reminded who's boss/expert. ( As opposed to the E 1 Conscientious desire to shake things up, so that they can be reformed.... ) A lot of what today would be considered non p-c, Mencken did so charmingly & amusingly, that you cann't take offense.
