    1 - Director - Sloth (Sin Rank 4/7) - Apathy and inactivity in the practice of virtue. Spiritual or emotional apathy; neglecting what God has spoken; being physically and emotionally inactive in the sense of sadness, depression or the inability to feel joy. Extreme depression leads to have thoughts or plans for suicide. May lead to wrath. If love is lost or lacking, sloth may be extreme.

    2 - Developer - Lust (Sin Rank 7/7) - Self-indulgent sexual desire. Emotion or feeling of intense desire in the body. An insatiable need, desire, thought or action for sex or things of a sexual nature including pornography. If unfulfilled, it can lead to masturbation, rape, and even bestiality.

    3 - Results - Wrath (Sin Rank 3/7) - Belligerence aroused by a real or supposed wrong. "Love of justice perverted to revenge and spite" - Dante. A need to do harm to others. Emotional response related to one's psychological interpretation of having been threatened. Indicates when one's basic boundaries are violated. Extreme anger, rage, hatred, or a need for vengeance or revenge. Often resort to taking the law in their own hands if they feel the justice system has failed them. To the extreme, may even turn to physical abuse of themselves or others, murder or even genocide.

    4 - Inspirational - Pride (Sin Rank 1/7) - Unreasonable and inordinate self-esteem. Inflated sense of one's personal status or accomplishments. Hubris (Loss of contact with reality; overestimation of one's own competence, accomplishments or capabilities, especially when in a position of power). Once considered a need to be the most beautiful, Pride can also mean a need for public acceptance in all acts and / or a need to be more important than others. Those who suffer with Pride issues, usually fail to give due complements to others, but instead fish for complements for themselves. They find ways to be better than those around them and usually have a "One Up" story. Pride is said to be the original and most deadly of the seven sins, leading straight to damnation! Derogatory explanations often assist our clients to remember things. Try "Archdeacon of Sneakiness" or "Auctioneer of fine goods about to be stolen."
