7 - Promoter - Splurger.Goes through periods of working and saving and then spends everything travelling through America.
8 - Counselor - Careless. Only spends money on important things, like designer shoes and throwing amazing parties.
5 - Persuader - Do not care. Do not care about money (as do Promoters) but are generally more controlled and aware of their expenditures. Love to have a good time with friends and will find that they don’t need money to do so like others. Generally don’t plan to become wealthy but will have a modest amount of savings to spend when they want.
6 - Appraiser - Saver. Tend to be good savers but may be susceptible to becoming very focused on showing off their wealth but that depends on the values they grew up with. If found in an area where public consumption of wealth was valued, then could be likely to spend high amounts on clothing, dining out and travel to be seen as “high status”.
7 - Promoter - Carefree. Money is an emotional extension of themselves but believe that they'll have a good life without it. Have an endless list of ideas that they can come up with to spend money on.
8 - Counselor - Random. Sometimes resourceful but sometimes inefficient. May make emotional / impulsive purchases despite knowing it's a poor decision. Tend to spend often but in small bursts of activity. Optimistic about risks and can be handy in the role of entrepreneur.
5 - Persuader - Show off. If they insist on paying for your dinners every time you go out, there will be some type of 'debt': e.g. time, emotion, commitment etc. To avoid this, make sure you pay your own way as any 'debt' is not worth dealing with.
6 - Appraiser - One upper. You might find that you are dragged into spending more than you want. They want to impress with cars, home, clothes etc. and to stop their bragging you might try to keep up. Be careful....
7 - Promoter - Extractor and/or Moocher.As an Extractor, pretends to reach for the wallet but always comes up short, so the other party pays. Or gets up to go to the bathroom when they see the waiter coming to the table with the bill. There is also a tendency to want to borrow for some 'need' which is termed a Moocher. It may be a book, a lawnmower, or a small amount of money as they never seem to have enough money or are lazy. Then your item depreciates while they use it. When combined with forgetfulness to pay you back or they keep forgetting to give back what they borrowed from you, it then involves you in time and effort to remind such people to return what they borrowed. Often finds creative and irrelevant excuses for delaying. Do not lend to them!
8 - Counselor - Extractor. Pretends to reach for the wallet but always comes up short, so the other party pays. Or gets up to go to the bathroom when they see the waiter coming to the table with the bill.
5 - Persuader - Sneaky Judgeology™. Often sneakily judgmental and do not realise it. Have a deep compassion for people and can become angry towards others who do not and who commit injustices towards others. Often tell how people can make better choices with their lives with ideas they have come up with as they want others to be happy.
6 - Appraiser - Unaware Judgeology™. Seen as judgmental but are not consciously aware of this. Deep down they possess a strong caring for everyone and want to make people happy. When they witness people harming others, especially if it is harming their loved ones, will become immediately judgmental. They are consciously aware of how their actions affect others and try very hard not to hurt people. Strong dislike of people who have no caring about others. Often feel judgmental towards people who act in a superior manner to them or to other people. They hold most people as equals until they witness certain actions from them.
7 - Promoter - Optimistic Judgeology™. Morally know what they believe is right and wrong and try to follow these guidelines. Appear non judgmental and do not like to judge as see the good in others and believe that they will change although this is often wildly optimistic. If they find themselves liking someone (or have a crush), may have a tendency to idolize and ignore their flaws or mistakes. May judge in absence of facts or when 'have a bee in their bonnet'.
8 - Counselor - Avoider Judgeology™. Conscious awareness of people and realize where they should and should not judge. They tend to prefer having fun and expressing forgiveness more than they do judgments. Sometimes ESFPs judge others who they feel are attacking them or their loved ones. If they fear this person intends to harm them, they will become judgmental before they even get a chance to do harm.
This technique emanates from the service station industry where it was always necessary to understand the attitude of operators and staff towards 'sparkle and housekeeping'. Elevanto's techniques are all about observing so if you can see how someone approaches the issue of clutter, it's another tool to work out their pattern to reap the advantages of using these techniques. You'll need to look in the four quadrants at all sixteen clutter descriptions.
5 - Persuader - Party Clutter. You bounce around your mental checklist. When the last item is crossed off, you stand near the table (not on it, of course, you just wiped it clean!) and give a speech: "We don't clean because it's cute. We clean because we are members of the apartment and the apartment is filled with people. Vacuuming, scrubbing, dusting, getting those tiny coffee grounds out from behind the grinder; these are noble pursuits and necessary to sustain life. But you, me and the 25 people coming over tonight, these are what we stay alive for. No matter what anybody tells you, a quick run of the mop can change this apartment.”
6 - Appraiser - Supporter Clutter. You diligently do your part, while also putting out snacks and making drinks for the rest of the cleaning crew. You can’t wait for your roommate to notice that you’ve folded their socks for them already, in that weird way they like. When your tasks are complete, if another person is a Developer on the cleaning crew, it will be you that assists that person who has broken the dryer by overloading it.
7 - Promoter - Reluctant Clutter. You'll only clean common areas if guests are coming over. Your bedroom looks like a poor man’s version of a treasure trove; a disaster by any measure. Cleaning is best done with a pod cast in your headphones or talking with a friend, so you can thoroughly dissociate from the fact that you are actually cleaning.
8 - Counselor - Unfocused Clutter. People are coming over in an hour, but the house is a mess. You'll take 20 minutes to select the perfect music to assist you with the vacuuming and it is mandatory to check all social media despite the clutter and the time ticking away. You then spend 60% of the remaining time dancing with your vacuum, 30% trying to get your roommate to dance too and 10% on actually doing the vacuuming.
This is the sort of kitchen you may like and how you organise things in the kitchen. This is useful if you have the chance to observe how someone else handled the kitchen. Another very useful indicator to pick their pattern. You'll need to look in the four quadrants to explore all sixteen kitchens.
5 - Persuader - The Dramatic Craftsman Kitchen. You are ambitious, empathetic and charismatic. You want to work in a kitchen that energizes you while not sacrificing form and function. You love the natural beauty of Craftsman-style kitchens but prefer to add a little more depth and drama with deep-red cabinets and a stunning view.
6 - Appraiser - The Simple Chic Kitchen. You are generous, responsible and practical. You love the simplicity of black and white. You appreciate clean lines and beautiful materials for their restful, harmonious qualities. The simpler the kitchen, the better, so you can focus all your attention on your loved ones.
7 - Promoter - The Bohemian Kitchen. You are curious, talkative and aspirational. You have a strong artistic side and love a cozy, carefree kitchen with plenty of colorful tea towels, throw rugs, fresh flowers, and artwork — whatever strikes your fancy! It's not clutter, it's personality!
8 - Counselor - The Classic Glam Kitchen. You are confident, charming, and enthusiastic about life. Not every person can pull off a crystal chandelier in the kitchen, but you can't think of anything more glorious. You love metallics, ornaments and marble bench tops and dream of owning a French La Cornue stove at $47,000.
How you go and they go in the bedroom may not be the starting point to pick someone's pattern. However, as with any model, the more information you have, the more likely you can reap the benefits of picking others behaviour patterns. You'll need to look in the four quadrants to explore all sixteen positions.
5 - Persuader - Enthusiastic Bedroomer. You have a very high sex drive, but only within the confines of a committed relationship. You aim to please the person you are with and are an enthusiastic lover. You will basically never say no to your partner and enjoy making them happy. It turns you on even more to see them pleased which makes the experience even better for you. As long as you feel comfortable with someone the sex is amazing. If you feel like your partner isn’t trustworthy or you don’t feel valued, your sex drive deteriorates.
6 - Appraiser - When in Love Bedroomer. To you sex is only truly good when you are deeply in love. If you don’t truly care for someone, sex can almost feel like a chore. When you are comfortable with your partner, sex with you is very passionate and animated. Above all else you want to make sure that your partner is happy and fully satisfied. If you feel like your partner is not enjoying themselves, it may make you shut down and you will no longer enjoy the experience yourself. To you sex is a chance to connect with your lover and feel closer to them. You may have a hard time receiving pleasure from your loved one, but the closer you feel the more you are willing to let go.
7 - Promoter - Best in the Bedroomer. You require an emotional connection to be able to be fully intimate with someone. Once you have established a connection, you are a very enthusiastic and passionate lover. You have a very high sex drive and see it as an opportunity to express yourself fully to someone. You enjoy being able to explore new sides of yourself and don’t like to set restrictions in the bedroom. You probably have heard you were the best your lovers ever had. Your creativity and passion in your daily life translates very well into the bedroom.
8 - Counselor - Athletic Bedroomer. You are extremely observant and in the moment as a sexual partner. You are capable of experiencing sex without love and you don’t generally feel remorse afterwards. Although you are capable of separating sex and love, you do enjoy feeling deeply connected to your partner. When you care about someone you can be extremely giving and enthusiastic. You are an athletic and exciting partner in the bedroom.
One of our latest techniques is to match these bratty descriptions to the person you are studying. Then you have their Disc pattern. You'll need to look in the four quadrants at all sixteen bratty descriptions.
5 - Persuader - Interfering with people’s personal lives. Emotionally intelligent, needs to let others make their own decisions and let go of the reins. Intention is to assist but does not take into account what the other party really wants, it's what they think is best. Getting caught meddling puts them at risk of losing trust and making the situation worse.
6 - Appraiser - Gossip. While interested in what others are up to, needs to know when to keep the mouth shut. May develop a reputation for being warm in person but judgmental behind other's backs and gain a reputation accordingly.
7 - Promoter - Disappearing on people. Have a short attention span combined with lots of feelings. When something new grabs their attention, tend to just disappear. May have strung people along beforehand - friends, family, business associates and love interests all of whom will be confused at the disappearance or why activities remain incomplete.
8 - Counselor - Spotlight chaser, at all costs. Not stick to plans, drop commitments. Can even fail to be there for friends in times of need (=neglect) if they perceive a greater opportunity for them to be the centre of attention. Needs to get the notion that attention is short term and fleeting whereas long lasting relationships are not.
