Eric Fromm isn't a historian or a biographer. Using him as a source of information about Hitler's personality is like using Dick Cheney as a source for information about quantum mechanics. Hitler was obviously either an INFP or an INFJ. He cannot be anything but.
You're shitting me! He's a psychologist and analyst who cites primary sources, speeches and character references, cant get much better than that, like I said I knew you'd be dismissive.
-Artist. Driven into poverty.
-Sensitive and emotionally fragile. Submissive.
-Would often take initiative to wash dishes and clean while in the army; shows femininity.
-Daydreamer as a young child.
-Rhetoric was based on emotion rather than logic.
-Was a "Jesus figure" to the Germans in many ways; lived "only for them".
-Had a grand vision for Germany after the war.
Does this sound like an STJ to you?
Eyewitness account of the man:
The first glance left me with a picture of s weak, soft face, with pouches under the eyes, full lips and very little bony facial structure. The moustache didn't seem as ridiculous as it appeared in pictures - in fact, I scarcely noticed it; but I imagine that is because I was pretty well conditioned to such things by that time. As has often been said, Hitler's eyes were startling and unforgetable - they seemed pale blue in color, were intense, unwavering, hypnotic. Certainly the eyes were his only distinctive feature. They could contain fury and fanaticism and cruelty; they could be mystic and tearful and challenging. This particular afternoon he was excessive, informal, he had a certain quiet charm, almost a tenderness of speech and glance. He talked soberly to Kiepura and seemed very interested and absorbed in meeting both of us. The curious embarrassment he showed in meeting me, his somewhat apologetic, nervous manner, my father tells me and other diplomats as well- are always present when he meets the diplomatic corps en masse ..... He seemed modest, middle class, rather dull and self-conscious--yet with this strange tenderness and, appealing helplessness. p. 64-65
Holy shit. I can't believe I'm even discussing this.
