Bill O'Reilly Enneagram

I'm going to go with "three" (3) for the essentially the same reason I now think that Brian Williams is a three.  We have now seen that both of them have an innate phoniness that has enabled them to convince even themselves that they had experiences they never had.  These self-aggrandizing tendencies are more typical of threes than of any other type.

I see that some years ago, there was a debate on the Enneagram Institute board, where nobody could exactly agree on his type -- various posters posited 1, 4, 6, and 8.  For me, that all just goes to show that he is likely a 3.  

Because of his big size, he has adopted a persona that seems to fit that size, and which has garnered him success (of sorts) in his chosen profession.  In other words, more than anything else, he is success driven, and he has created the "bully" persona because he figured out (quite rightly) that that was the best path to success.   But the result is a very confused personality, especially under stress.

As I said in the Brian Williams post, most of these media personalities are probably threes, even though they present as other types.
