This looks pretty function based to me. I don't like the definitions but it's still proof that they use functions.
I will say that the most traditionally 'masculine' types are SLE and LSE while the most traditionally 'feminine' types are EII and IEI. It is often the case that female SLEs and LSEs can come across as rather 'manly'.
I have been creating my own add-ons to the theory though. I refined and expanded on Gulenko's work on Temperament and I am working on improving his Communication Styles (strongest Rational IM Element) while creating my own Movement Styles (strongest Irrational IM Element). I'd be a Firm Communicator (4D Te) and a Clumsy Mover (4D Ne).
I've found that these variables become quite distinct when you understand their definitions and how they surface in day to day behaviour.
Of course you have to apply some context. Anyone can say the words he said because anyone can read them off the page. Anyone can recite these words having had them recited. However, only Ti-types can view the world through Ti in such a way that their primary reason for action is based on it being ordained by rules, ordination and logic at the absence of wants and desires. Only one type can say what Stannis said as an accurate communication of their world view. We know this because Ti is defined this way and the Leading function is defined in such a way as to dictate the person's worldview
It is debatable whether this actually has practical merit (a theory of inter-country relations) or whether Rick was just engaging in intellectual masturbation. I might ask him
It was when Gulenko started typing furniture that I thought he had gone way too far with this thing. At least a country is made up of people.
It is questionable as to whether Se is depicted in a negative light or that the values of the west are anti-Se.
One could compare Beta values (including Se) to Homeric values and Delta values (anti-Se) to Judaeo-Christian values. After all, I think Se used to be the most important and valued function in the ancient world. The 'hero' was essentially Se idealised.
