These sort of saying have more to do with selective bias than anything else. And tend to find a voice when and if they become apposite.

birds of a feather flock together; opposites attract
too many cooks spoil the broth; many hands make light work.
Look before you leap; He who hesitates is lost.
You’re never too old to learn; You can’t teach an old dog new tricks.

I suppose it's a bit like "situation ethics" where you make note of the situation and spout the Aphorism that fits, even though there is another Aphorism that states the opposite, yet is just as true, or not.

Not YOU; when ya "spout the Aphorism that fits", I meant.

There is a lot of overlap between archetypes and Tarot cards. There is a similarity there.

All your questions are rubbish.
How often is often?
How extreme is extreme.
It's all subjective. It only asked about a person's view of themselves. It's worthless.

The scores / test results from several Myers Briggs forums have helped me put together a rubric for my theory. I was able to figure out what the threshold / highest score should be for someone to have these archetype pairs / disorders.

What type is Trump?

Reality show producer
Reality producer.
Same principle, different situation.
It would be the same principle if Trump was a farmer.

My mother said to me, 'If you become a soldier, you'll be a general; if you become a monk, you'll end up as the Pope.' Instead, I became a painter and wound up as Picasso. - Pablo Picasso

Trump is the charmer. He has the coldness and apathy of the shadow archetype, manipulativeness of the trickster and outspokenness of the rebel archetype.

I'll give you two out of three and a chance to reconsider.

In order to have any of these archetype pairs your highest score has to at least be a 105. That's the threshold.
