The part in bold is what I've been mulling over, because he seems to come across as a logical type by virtue of his intelligence. I've seen him typed LIE more often than IEI, for example. He always seemed a bit more romantic to me. Thank you for the response.That quote demonstrates two things, a lot of Ni and a very strong grasp of ethics, both Fi and Fe. He starts by introducing a highly symbolic scenario and then uses it to make a complicated argument about ethics from the perspectives of both individuals and society as a whole, what he wants and what is right for everybody. It's a good example of a highly intelligent IEI talking about a subject they're very good at.
