Honestly I don't think he planned any of it but instead was taking orders from Talia and the league of shadows due to his love for her. When you replay the movie knowing the end in mind I would have to suggest that he isn't Te Dom but possibly Fe Dom. I've come to see him as an ExFJ acting out on his emotions for the girl he saved and eventually came to love. Hence the tears dripping down his face when Talia mentioned it. Not saying an ESTJ can't be emotional or cry, but his apparent Te doesn't seem so apparent when you find out he was doing Tali as bidding who was trying to fulfill her fathers plan for Gotham. He even avoided killing people directly. Wouldn't even kill Bruce when he had the chance. Everyone else did the killing, Talia and the league of shadows did all the planning. He also knew the lie behind Harvey Dents cover up and exposed it to release the prisoners that were indicted due to laws made by Harvey. It was contradicting for Harvey to turn people in then go on to be worst then the criminals. Then have the criminals that were most likely innocent in the face of the law sit in prison without having a clue of the truth behind Harvey. Bane saw the wrong in this and exposed it. He also protected Talia as a child even while growing up in that prison himself. He felt the need to protect this child fro, the dangers that plagued her in their, and sacrificed his health to make sure she was safe and was able to escape. Growing up in that environment I don't see a Te Dom doing these things, not saying they aren't kindhearted and aren't able, but when you look at all the facts that are present in the movie he definitely seems like an ExFJ
ENFJ is my conviction for him.
Exactly. I was wondering, "Wait, what?" at the statement that Bane avoided directly killing people. Bane had no qualms about doing so.He didn't avoid killing directly. He killed the scientist at the football stadium, he killed Daggett at the stock exchange, and one of his own men when Gordon was brought to the sewers.
