> I think that Adventurous Style people wouldn't bother to do so much effort for something like that? To me it seems more of finding some legitimacy in political causes to behave agressively towards fellow-citizens. A bit like the bearded communists during WWI period in Russia behaved......So I would pick Agressive Style best choice here.
I had forgotten the article you had posted, farther down the list! Rereading that, yes, he sounds alot more Aggressive than Adventurous.... I would amend your statement that he was semi-traitorous, to one that he was a political opportunist who backed the wrong player, and is now stuck with it.... If, he lives long enough, and runs true to type, there will various changing explantions as to why he joined the East Germans, and that he only did it for the best of humanitarian reasons.... ( Just as the old line Communists tried to explain away Stalinism! ) Rich
