    Beholders are big enough, I'd say (although they do tend to be a bit lacking in Str)...the issue is, would a Beholder allow an inferior being such as a human ride it?

    He'd have to have a Cha of 20+

    I hate to say it, but in this war I'm hiding behind any xxTJ's while they obliterate the opponent. When they ultimately lose, I'll already have been far, far away.

    You have much better luck hiding behind Jack Bauer or Jason Bourne.
    As far as I know, Te has nothing to do with battlefield performance.

    War is like a game of hide and seek. Everything is out of control and you have to respond fast to anything that happens, very much like in a Alien Ripley movie. If all you think about is following some stupid Te command (like obey command and orders) and ignore your own life, how can you survive in the battlefield?

    What about Jack Burton?

    Exactly, everyone here is focusing on the designing of weapons and killing of enemies part. No one is caring about the supply line.

    I wouldn't mind keeping that supply line running as long as I stay far far away from the front line.

    Don't get me wrong. Improvisation which is the P-domain is important, but P laziness and slacker attitude, forgetfulness, dislike for structure and laws, inability/dislike of taking orders and not being on time aren't good army traits.
    That's a double-edged sword, though. With too much structure and precise individuals, there are too few who can come up with new solutions and break regulation when that is clearly needed.
    When something is clearly without structure, it falls apart due to squabbling, logistics problems, lack of direction and all that general first-class clusterfucking.
    Thus, balance is key. Within a good structure with a crystal-clear chain of command down to the last soldier, things work out best for everyone. All healthy individuals can find their niche within an army, I believe.
    P's are not designed to organize, they are more the "field operative" type.
    Especially ENTPs and ESTPs make absolutely EXCELLENT soldiers, when they get to roam free a little and cause havoc.
    P-types work best under democratic circumstances, when they are allowed to discuss things.
    ENTPs and INTPs absolutely LOVE to squabble about things, generally.
    It can be quite annoying when you are taking fire, I reckon.
    Orders cannot and should not be discussed when time is of the essence.
    Of course, there are exceptions to the rules, like concentration camp shit and warcrimes.
    But generally... Orders must be followed.
    ENTPs are the ones that will notice the gasoline tanks under the support columns where the sniper is positioned and bail the platoon out.

    ESTPs are the ones who under pressure will grow ice in their veins and slaughter about 20 guys without even blinking. i.e. Halla's vaunted berserker.

    xxTJs are the ones who will get the job done day in and day out, making sure the army's a well-oiled machine. xxTPs are the ones who will pull something ridiculous out of their asses when the situation gets all FUBAR, then bitch about military life the rest of the time.
