Pagination or Media Count:
Chinese leadership can be linked to a specific temperament and that temperament gives characteristics that can be interpreted to understand intentions. Dr. David Keirseys Temperament Model is used as a foundation to show the change of temperaments of Chinese leaders and how they are associated with decisions regarding interests in the East and South China Seas via a modernized military. Chinese leadership is focused on being regarded as a great power nation, one that can grow and prosper like the United States. It seeks to control the East and South China Seas to provide a layered defense while also controlling the resources within the ocean floors.
