This is the Elevanto Method™

Can you Impose Correctly?

Phase 1 is to put the person you want to impose upon into the correct Quadrant.

Either or both of:
* Choosing between Introvert and Extrovert and People or Things.
* Use the Multiple Choice 'quiz' from the link below (quiz is on a separate page) and is on a multiple choice basis.

Phase 2 is to try to narrow it down to the specific pattern.

This is part art and part science and can be done in any order and some can be left out. The aim is to get the fit correct.
Either or both of:
* Read the patterns, including the outlines that are contained on each page e.g. Director. * Use the 4 Myers Briggs Letters. *Use the Archdeacons™ descriptors - we use this as the shortcut most of the time. You need to be satisfied that around 80% of the description of attributes matches the imposee. This means that you have the Pattern.

Phase 3 is to impose by following the guide that is a pdf document.

There are two types of imposition:
* Platinum Imposition - this is when you only have worked out the Quadrant only. Not as good as the Titanium, but 100% better than before you came to this site.
* Titanium Imposition™ - this is when you only have worked out the Pattern only. It enables you to more finely tune your imposition as you know what the imposee likes and dislikes.

    In this example, it is the behaviour pattern of Elizabeth Hunter™, the nom de plume writer for Elevanto. INTJ = 16 Enhancer.

    Phase 3: Impose Correctly.

    Titanium Imposition™ is the technique when you are preparing to address conflict and you know how the person will react to that.

    Gold Imposition™ is treating others as you want to be treated. This is the Golden rule outlined in Matthew 7:12. We consider this to be totally ineffective.
    Platinum Imposition™ is if you know the quadrant or are not sure (Secret: Treat as High I).
    Titanium Imposition™ is if you know the pattern exactly and is very useful to fine tune your approach because you know what buttons to press and what to avoid.

    If you have found your way here, this is the whole Elevanto method of Titanium Imposition™

    Emergency Area - You only know whether they are D, I, S, or C.

    D - If you have a conflict with a person with a D personality, do not be afraid to approach your disagreement head on. Strong-willed D style personalities can sometimes be a bit intimidating, especially to confrontation-adverse personality styles. The good news is that you do not need to be afraid of talking to someone with a D personality about a problem you are having with them. Confrontation, when handled respectively, is something that D personalities typically respond towards in a very positive fashion. D personalities would prefer to bring conflict out into the open, so you can get them out of the way quickly. They will respect you handling your differences in a direct way.

    I - Conflict with I personalities is best handled with a light touch. People with I-style personalities are outgoing and energetic. They love interacting with other people and are genuinely happy to talk with anyone, anywhere. But there is one thing that I personalities cannot stand: rejection. If an I personality feels like you personally dislike them, it will only exacerbate any problems you are already experiencing. Tackle a discussion about any problems you have with an I personality only after you have approached in a positive way. Start with a compliment or an anecdote. When you talk about your issues, keep your sense of humour and do not lose your cool. They will respond better to a friendly discussion than a direct confrontation.

    S - When you have a conflict with an S personality, try working together to find common ground. People with S personalities value harmony and are excellent peacemakers. They want everyone to be happy and strive to create an environment where everyone works together in a positive way. The danger of confronting an S personality with a problem is that they will agree to make a change in order to keep the peace between you but may be unable (or unwilling) to follow through with the request in a meaningful way. They are much more likely to act on a compromised solution—one where you both resolve to work together to make changes. When you talk to an S personality about a problem, start by focussing on things you agree on, not where you disagree. Offer a good compromise, and it will get you far.

    C - If you have a conflict with a C personality, attack the problem, not the person. C personalities are organised and controlled. They take their time completing tasks accurately, like to research things thoroughly and are always prepared. Because they put so much time and effort into everything they do, they hate to be criticised. They are perfectionists at heart and take even the smallest complaint personally. This makes them extremely difficult to confront. The best way to approach it is to focus on parts of the problem largely out of the C personality’s control or aspects of the problem they might not have considered. Make it clear that you appreciate all of their efforts and that you are bringing something to their attention because it is a variable that they need to have in the equation in the future. No matter what, do not frame the conflict as a personal attack. If you do, the C personality will likely become resentful and go out of their way to avoid future interactions with you. However, sometimes they have to be held to account which may be okay if you know they are only there temporarily! If they want to avoid, then that's their decision and not yours.

    What if you are dealing with a moron?

    Moron - a person who is notably stupid or lacking in good judgment.

    This technique emanates from when you find that the person you are dealing with becomes unreasonable.

    1 - Minimise time with the moron and give up the dream that they will one day be the person you wish they would be. Keep your interactions as short as possible. Minimising your exposure to those who show any deviation from a healthy, normal or efficient condition goes a long, long way. Give up where they seem to be the parent/partner/spouse/friend etc. you have always felt they could be, yet they ultimately always end up hurting or disappointing significantly. See the Sir Robertson Sole Symptoms™ on each Pattern's page. We fall for it and get our hopes up again the next time they treat us nicely or seem to have turned a new leaf. Giving up the hope and fully accepting this person for who they really are can be an unbelievable relief after what is sometimes a lifetime of wishing. Give them the flick pass. Get rid of them if you can. They will still have their knickers in a knot and you will not. Sometimes, you just have to wear them - refer items 2 - 7.

    2 - Keep it logical and in writing. This may be difficult if you are very verbal, heart-focussed person, who connects from an emotional or empathic perspective. This only works with reasonable people who care. Unreasonable people usually do not care and their response (or lack of it) will often only make you more upset. Keep communications fact-based, using minimal details and in writing if possible. Unreasonable people lose track of what they said and misinterpret what you said.

    3 - Do not drink around them. It may be tempting to get into the booze when you are around people who are acting like morons, it will only make you more emotionally vulnerable and more likely to do or say something useless that will either make you look bad, make you feel bad, or make you more of a target.

    4 - Focus on them in conversation. A way to avoid being the target of demeaning comments, manipulation or having your words twisted is to say as little as possible. Volunteer minimal information and get them talking about themselves if you have to be around them or have to interact with them. Make it that they are a far safer conversation subject than you are.

    5 - Stay away from topics that get you into trouble. Before going into an interaction with a moron, review in your mind the topics that invite attack and be proactive about avoiding them. e.g. if your in-laws always make cracks about your choice of career, answer neutrally and change the subject immediately (see item 4) if they ask you how work is going.

    6 - Do not try to get them to see your point of view. Do not try to explain yourself or try to get morons to understand you and empathise with your perspective. They will not and you will just feel worse for trying and failing.

    7 - Create a distraction. If you absolutely have to spend time with someone who typically upsets you, try to be around them in circumstances that offer some sort of distraction. Focus on playing with a pet if there is one in the vicinity, have the interaction be based around some kind of recreational activity or entertainment, or offer to help in a way that takes you out of the main ring (e.g. offering to chop vegetables in the kitchen before a family dinner). If you can get them to do something that absorbs their attention (taking it off you), even better.
