Saturday secret service psychologist: come play my mind game

Rules: Resist the Googling trigger fingers and use your brain instead. All the quotes below reveal an interesting personality – and are attributed to one real person. Can you put your secret service psychologist hat on – and guess who said it?

Clues: Today we have an ENTJ. You all know him.

Quotations:

  • It is better to create than to learn! Creating is the essence of life.
  • I love the name of honour, more than I fear death.
  • What we wish, we readily believe, and what we ourselves think, we imagine others think also.
  • In the end, it is impossible not to become what others believe you are.
  • No one is so brave that he is not disturbed by something unexpected.
  • It is easier to find men who will volunteer to die, than to find those who are willing to endure pain with patience.
  • It is not these well-fed long-haired men that I fear, but the pale and the hungry-looking.
  • As a rule, men worry more about what they can’t see than about what they can.
  • In war, events of importance are the result of trivial causes.

Do comment if you wish – and especially if you don’t know the answer! I am very curious to see who you come up with 🙂 You all know this person. Next week I will up the ante!

Wishing you a wonderful weekend.

  1. It has to be someone known as a military leader, but the second quote pushes it back in history…our modern war-leaders don’t really speak that way any more. Churchill might have done so, especially with the first quote, but the speech patterns seem archaic and there is a more philosophical tone than he is usually quoted as using. My guess is Marcus Aurelius?

      1. The one about the volunteers worried me, but human life was seen as cheaper in ancient times…and I’m convinced this guy ( and it almost has to be a man) goes back that far.
