Re: Flamenco and NA type in Spain
I wonder if all dance is an expression of the N Trait. If so the differentiating factors would lie in the presence or absence of the P and A traits. Using your definition of the A trait, it is about the need for survival "by maintaining a position of power over competitors." I think A is evident in flamenco in the form of posturing and pointed energy.
In contrast, take for example tinikling, the national dance of the Philippines. Here you see order in the form of persistence and repetition, pointing to an N, NP trait dynamic. It is light-hearted, friendly, and folksy. The A trait is nowhere to be seen.
