    So there's an author who claims there are four main sub classes of the male personality-

    http://www.artofmanliness.com/2011/0...-introduction/

    The King- Intellectual and natural leader.
    The Warrior- Physically dominant and powerful, but lack of intellect.
    The Magician- Skilled, charming, deceiver.
    The Lover- Emotional, gentle-heated non fighter.

    Obviously, as is the case with all groupings, it is too narrow to capture the richness of any human being.

    But I'd still like to know what your opinions.

    Guys- What group do you identify with, if any?
    Girls- Which one of these are you most attracted to?

    Perhaps they would go under magician. Although I don't think they're charming in any way.

    Most people will overlap between those categories so you can't put someone into one only

    I would prefer "The lover" since he seems perfect as a boyfriend/husband out of the other three in my opinion.
    I know and have some "warriors" in my life and one "king", that being my father though we argue a lot lol. A guy who is the mixture of a "lover" and "king", is ideal.

    A king and a warrior might call themselves one but a lover, having that emotional and humble attitude would probably not describe themselves as one. That's a maybe but I know for sure a magician would never describe themselves as one, because they are by nature deceitful so they would never admit to being one. Just like a Machiavellian would never admit to being one.

    So in a way you can't really get an accurate picture of who people think they are, most magicians would call themselves a lover anyway
