I think he's an INTJ 5w4 sx/soc. David Wallace (and possibly Toby) is an INFJ.Sorry for necroposting. I'm not too far in with him, but do you think it's possible that he could be an INFJ? We're not all good, you know.
Any type can be manipulative, but his manipulation is stemming mainly from Ni. He's cold, confident, and above all, strategic. He's a chess master who looks at his employees like pawns. He also mentions how he doesn't like wasting his time, and created a winners/losers list of everyone on his first day. I don't see much Fe. As I was saying before, compare how he is as a CEO to David Wallace. Wallace's Fe is very apparent. He is more willing to compromise and appease people, like Michael whenever he would always call him as a last resort on mostly non-business issues.I don't see Te in him. I think he's too manipulative (Fe) to be an INTJ.
Yeah, that can happen with inferior Se...I think he is a sex addicted INTJ in an Ni-Fi loop...8w7 enneagram.
Not exactly sure, but I think he's also drawing from Fi.@mistakenforstranger
You make a good point, but I'm still not sure. I don't see how manipulation could stem from a function that takes in information. Sure, he uses his aura of Ni as a tool to manipulate, but I think the actual manipulation would have to be coming from an extraverted function.
He created it to increase productivity (Ni-Te), without any concern about the emotions of the employees involved. That's what I mean by pawns; he treats them impersonally, indicating T. After he reveals its purpose, Andy, an Fe-dom, tells him positive characteristics of the "losers," speaking on behalf of the group.The creation of that list wasn't actually for organization, it was a ploy to manipulate, and heighten his own social position. Yes, he is strategic, but he operates by playing with emotions. The fact that he is so adept at manipulating his employees, or as you put it, playing them like pawns, indicates Fe>Te.
I don't see why an INTJ using Fi wouldn't be able to understand the emotions of others, especially their internal motivations.I don't think an INTJ would be able to work people the way he does. Ni coupled with Te provides insight into logical systems, while Ni with Fe provides insight into the workings of emotions and the mind. I think he would need the latter in order to pull off what he does.
