When they are at fault or under pressure, it can make it easy for you to pick their pattern

Are you at fault? Observing faults and own goals can be handy when picking someone's pattern.

We also detail propensity to exaggerate, sins and Self-Improvement strategies!

Exaggeration is “Swearing in your native tongue”. Carl Jung, the legendary Swiss psychiatrist and psychoanalyst, indicated that when things get dicey, we are more apt to react in a manner that feels most familiar. By doing this, we lose access to the auxiliary function that keeps us balanced. This notion of exaggeration is why under a certain amount of stress, our personality becomes ‘bigger’, but not necessarily more effective. ALL ONE’S GEESE ARE SWANS.

You will most likely need assistance :-) This might tell you what but it will not tell you how. Here are the faults and grumbling styles of all sixteen patterns - you will be here, too!

Caveat Lector™ = "Let the reader beware!"

Conducted and Composed by Emeritus Professor Ridley Kive™ - Last Update 13 March, 2019


1. Can it be the Director - ESTJ?

The Director is the Border Collie

Emeritus Prof. R.Kive™'s One Worder Fault Summary™: Demanding

Emeritus Prof. R.Kive™'s Chink Assessment™ (Achillies' heel): Can struggle to be sensitive to the emotions and feelings of others and should pause to consider the implications. They may consider the values of others as irrelevant to a decision and inadvertently cause conflict or chaos in their relationships. They also can come across as bossy or demanding because they are naturally wired to spot errors and flaws and point them out.

Emeritus Prof. R.Kive™'s VII Deadly Sinz™: Avoids expressing emotion, tends to be blunt, obsessed with correctness, judgmental, stubborn, inflexible, overly concerned with social status.

Fault - Being too Bossy. Directors lead with a process called Extroverted Thinking. Directors easily see errors that need correcting and naturally delegate to get jobs done and tasks completed on time. They are less excited about the minutiae of implementing goals and prefer to direct others to do so. They are natural leaders and supervisors and, while this is a very good thing, it can give them a reputation for being bossy or controlling. They see what needs to be fixed, what needs to be done and they usually have no problem telling other people how to get those things done or doing it themselves. They don’t mean to be bossy or come across as controlling (but do), rather they are driven by task completion and goal achievement. They see it as their duty to make sure that goals are completed and everyone’s lending a hand to get the job done.

Observed as the Grumbling Griper™. When their hard work is under-appreciated or they feel taken for granted.

Observed as the Complaint Machine™. Directors are complaint machines. They certainly do not mind complaining about things that upset them and will often do so openly. When the Director is upset about something, other people will hear about it. If they keep these things bottled up for too long, then they will become extremely anxious and on edge. Directors do best when they are free to complain about the things that anger them. This helps the Director vent and feel much more comfortable moving forward after something frustrating happens to them. They do not want to be viewed as complainers though (but always are) and simply want to have people to talk to when they are frustrated. A continual Complaint Machine™.

Observed technique scoring Own Goals™. The Director sabotages their life by indefinitely putting off happiness.

Caveat Lector™ Read the Behaviour Pattern so you do not have any surprises down the road. The Director may lecture you incessantly about anything you do that is even remotely illogical.

Emeritus Prof. R.Kive™'s "More of a different kind": Has the overgrown anger reflexes of an Objective Thinker.

Emeritus Prof. R.Kive™'s Habitsecrecy™: Wants to tell and does.

Emeritus Prof. R.Kive™'s Streetwalker Observatory™: The police officer arguing with the Inspirational.

Emeritus Prof. R.Kive™'s Excuse Machine Rating™: 3. (Mid) Uses excuses to move forward or when in unsafe situation.

Emeritus Prof. R.Kive™'s Feelings Hurter™ - what will offend the Director: Disrespect of time. (By procrastinators, others being late.)

Propensity to exaggerate: Becomes detached and cold; Feels everything must be rational; Oversimplifies for sake of clarity; Interrupts and critiques others’ logic; Dominates by dissection.

Under pressure: Avoids expressing emotion, tends to be blunt, obsessed with correctness, judgmental, stubborn, inflexible, overly concerned with social status.

Virtue or Sin: 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.

Self-Improvement: Be aware of your overuse of stubbornness, strong convictions and being forthright.


2. Can it be the Developer - ENTJ?

The Developer is the German Shepherd

Emeritus Prof. R.Kive™'s One Worder Fault Summary™: Bossy

Emeritus Prof. R.Kive™'s Chink Assessment™ (Achillies' heel): Can become unaware of the impact their words have on others and can behave in ways that are insensitive, brusque or overly-critical. They can also become arrogant when dealing with people who they perceive as having trivial, unimportant interests. They can also become overbearing and bossy when they are in charge of people who they see as inefficient or distracted. They can be extremely strong leaders, but working on some tact can help them to achieve their goals and motivate people much more quickly. They are generally loathed.

Emeritus Prof. R.Kive™'s VII Deadly Sinz™: Controlling and intimidating, appears angry, impulsive, arrogant, impatient, bad with emotion, cold & ruthless.

Fault - Being too Arrogant. Developers are usually extremely driven, competitive and confident individuals. They have a natural leadership style and bold determination that can make them intimidating to many people. They know what they want, they have an eye for the future and they want to get there as quickly as possible. They can become impatient with emotions, extraneous details and people who contradict their plans. Their natural confidence and drive can seem domineering and superior to others, especially people who are more soft-spoken and gentle in their delivery. It is important to remember that confidence and superiority are not the same thing. Many Developers are confident but truly do not consider themselves superior to anyone else. They are usually open to hearing other people’s views as long as they are not clouded by emotions or filled with details that get in the way of the overall big picture or point.

Observed as the Grumbling Griper™. When people do not do what they ask.

Observed as the Complaint Machine™. Developer definitely do not like to be seen complaining, since it may be seen as a sign of weakness. Developers prefer to focus on getting things done and absolutely hate being stagnant. If the Developer is angry about something, they do not express themselves in a whiny way, but in a more serious and direct tone. They do not enjoy complaining simply for the sake of venting and will only do so if they feel it will help change someone’s actions. Developers are more focused on action and will rarely complain to people they do not know well. If the Developer truly trusts someone they might feel more comfortable opening up to them in a very direct way but not as a whinger. A put conflict ahead of complaints Complaint Machine™.

Observed technique scoring Own Goals™. The Developer sabotages their life by bypassing it.

Caveat Lector™ Read the Behaviour Pattern so you do not have any surprises down the road. The Developer may completely rearrange your habits, routines and long-term plans as they see fit and then make you think it was your idea.

Emeritus Prof. R.Kive™'s "More of a different kind": The moment when a Developer spins in their office chair to face you.

Emeritus Prof. R.Kive™'s Habitsecrecy™: Wants to tell and does.

Emeritus Prof. R.Kive™'s Streetwalker Observatory™: The one in a business suit or equivalent.

Emeritus Prof. R.Kive™'s Excuse Machine Rating™: 5. (Low) Is blunt and direct with excuses to get things done.

Emeritus Prof. R.Kive™'s Feelings Hurter™ - what will offend the Developer: Passive Aggressiveness. (Pouters, sulkers, emotional punishers.)

Propensity to exaggerate: Becomes detached and cold; Feels everything must be rational; Oversimplifies for sake of clarity; Interrupts and critiques others’ logic; Dominates by dissection.

Under pressure: Controlling and intimidating, appears angry, impulsive, arrogant, impatient, bad with emotion, cold & ruthless.

Virtue or Sin: 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. Lust also includes the desire for knowledge and power.

Self-Improvement: Be aware of being a selective listener, hearing only what you want to hear.


3. Can it be the Results - ESTP?

The Results is the Jack Russell Terrier

Emeritus Prof. R.Kive™'s One Worder Fault Summary™: Impulsive

Emeritus Prof. R.Kive™'s Chink Assessment™ (Achillies' heel): Can be so focused on action and activity that they become bored and restless when conversation gets too theoretical or abstract. This can leave them missing out on deeper bonding and meaningful moments with the people they care about. They can also forget to stop and analyse the big picture and what is really important in the grand scheme of things.

Emeritus Prof. R.Kive™'s VII Deadly Sinz™: Prone to boredom, can be insensitive, lack of long-term focus, impatient, defiant, too detail-oriented, unstructured.

Fault - Being seen as not taking life seriously. Results folk tend to live in the moment and enjoy taking advantage of current opportunities and realities. They are usually optimists and favour a lot of action and excitement in their lives. At the same time, they tend to dislike routine, sitting still and making long-term decisions. They like to keep their options open and become stressed when they have to make decisions that might tie them down or limit their prospects. Parents, teachers, or partners who see their easy charm and impulsive lifestyle might judge them for not buckling down and making commitments or deciding. They might feel that it’s “immature” to go from one experience to another and not develop a consistent routine. Mature Results folk are responsible, capable, and fearless, but they probably aren’t the types who want to sit in an office the rest of their lives. They need the chance to experiment, go on adventures and try new things. Tying them down will only cause resentment and frustration. At the same time, they may benefit from the help of open-minded people who can help them find strategies for achieving and choosing their long-term goals.

Observed as the Grumbling Griper™. When things get slow or theoretical.

Observed as the Complaint Machine™. Results folk do not mind complaining, but they do it in a more lighthearted way. They will often use humour as a way to vent about what is frustrating them. Results folk do not want to be seen as weak and will often make themselves appear more put together than they actually are. In many cases they will only complain in a joking manner, except for with their close loved ones. If the Results folk trusts someone they will complain to them much more and will vent about what is bothering them. A lighthearted Complaint Machine™.

Observed technique scoring Own Goals™. The Results folk sabotage their life by choosing the path of least resistance.

Caveat Lector™ Read the Behaviour Pattern so you do not have any surprises down the road. The Results person may literally charm the pants off you.

Emeritus Prof. R.Kive™'s "More of a different kind": The inner pep talk voice of a Counselor.

Emeritus Prof. R.Kive™'s Habitsecrecy™: Wants to tell and does.

Emeritus Prof. R.Kive™'s Streetwalker Observatory™: The dude on a motorcycle.

Emeritus Prof. R.Kive™'s Excuse Machine Rating™: 2. (High) Has quick excuses for reckless actions and uses white lies.

Emeritus Prof. R.Kive™'s Feelings Hurter™ - what will offend the Results person: Underestimation. (Not being trusted to get it done.)

Propensity to exaggerate: Speaks and acts without thinking; Becomes hyperactive; Chatters and disturbs others, disrupt; Are blunt and curt; Are pedantic – every detail is crucial.

Under pressure: Prone to boredom, can be insensitive, lack of long-term focus, impatient, defiant, too detail-oriented, unstructured.

Virtue or Sin: 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.

:

Self-Improvement: Be aware of being too impulsive at times as ego and optimism combine.


4. Can it be the Inspirational - ENTP?

The Inspirational is the Bull Terrier

Emeritus Prof. R.Kive™'s One Worder Fault Summary™: Egotistical

Emeritus Prof. R.Kive™'s Chink Assessment™ (Achillies' heel): Together with the Promoter can struggle to zoom in on one idea and make it a reality. Driven by the thrill of the chase – completing something, marking it off as “done” is far less interesting to them. As a result, they can get bored or distracted after working for a prolonged time on the same project. Requires a great deal of effort for them to stay on track and not sidestep onto another new, interesting plan or possibility.

Emeritus Prof. R.Kive™'s VII Deadly Sinz™: Poor follow-up skills, easily bored, argumentative, intolerant of others, bad at focusing, dislike practical matters, insensitive.

Fault - Being way too argumentative. Inspirationals naturally see about a thousand alternate angles to any statement or rule. They are determined to explore every perspective and find an idea’s core truth. This can be frustrating for friends and family members who don’t share the Inspirational's natural love of debate. They may feel that the Inspirational is arguing just for the sake of it and, while that may sometimes be the case, it’s not usually. Most Inspirationals just have to make sure a statement stands up to scrutiny, and they can find so very many ways to scrutinize something. It can frustrate Inspirationals when they unintentionally offend people they care about by arguing against something that’s personal to someone else. They may feel misunderstood or that their efforts to discover truth are being stifled. Especially as children, many Inspirationals are told to do as their told and follow authority without question. This can be a very difficult experience when young as they essentially have to shut down a major part of who they are to get by - manipulative tendencies and a Jekyll and Hyde reputation in many instances.

Observed as the Grumbling Griper™. When people do not understand their vision.

Observed as the Complaint Machine™. Inspirationals often dislike feeling like they are complaining too much and will try to avoid this. They prefer to focus on the possibilities around them, and dislike being too negative. Inspirationals will occasionally complain to someone they trust, but might ind themselves pulling back if they complain too much. They do not want to burden others with their negative thoughts, and often want to appear like they are perfectly fine. Inspirationals dislike being seen as weak by others, which can sometimes force them to push through their frustrations. Inspirationals are excellent at masking their troubles with humour and will often use this as a way to complain or vent. A humour using Complaint Machine™.

Observed technique scoring Own Goals™. The Inspirational sabotages their life by losing touch with it.

Caveat Lector™ Read the Behaviour Pattern so you do not have any surprises down the road. The Inspirational may delve deeply and intensely into your psyche, make you question everything you thought you knew about yourself and then completely disappear without notice.

Emeritus Prof. R.Kive™'s "More of a different kind": The moment when an Inspirational says it’s cool and they’re not mad, but it’s just denial.

Emeritus Prof. R.Kive™'s Habitsecrecy™: Wants to tell and does not tell.

Emeritus Prof. R.Kive™'s Streetwalker Observatory™: The one arguing with the police for illegally parking because they did not see the sign.

Emeritus Prof. R.Kive™'s Excuse Machine Rating™: 2. (High) Quick excuses that are believable and to push boundaries.

Emeritus Prof. R.Kive™'s Feelings Hurter™ - what will offend the Inspirational: Willful ignorance. (Others ignoring facts to support incorrect assertions.)

Propensity to exaggerate: Are obsessed with/convinced of links between things; Wants change for the sake of change; Are over the top, frantic, out of control; Are swamped with options, can’t decide; Experience sudden, irrational change.

Under pressure: Trouble with conflict, manipulative, easily bored, bad at focusing, weak against stress, too independent, highly emotional.

Virtue or Sin: 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 Inspirationals. Try "Bishop of Sneakiness" or "Auctioneer of fine goods about to be stolen."

Self-Improvement: Be aware of overusing the philosophy "the end justifies the means”.


5. Can it be the Persuader - ENFJ?

The Persuader is the Boxer

Emeritus Prof. R.Kive™'s One Worder Fault Summary™: Needy

Emeritus Prof. R.Kive™'s Chink Assessment™ (Achillies' heel): Can struggle with seeing things objectively. They may struggle incessantly with trying to decide on something that will impact others in possibly negative ways. In an effort to maintain harmony they may phrase criticism in such a way that it just confuses the person they are speaking with rather then get the point across. They can also take on much more than they can handle in an effort to meet others’ needs.

Emeritus Prof. R.Kive™'s VII Deadly Sinz™: Harbours hurt feelings, tendency to manipulate, tendency to smother, overly idealistic, too selfless, bad at making decisions, fluctuating self-esteem.

Fault - Being always seen as trying too hard. Persuaders are known for their enthusiasm, empathy and outgoing nature. They crave harmony in their environment and like to make people happy and feel welcome and understood. Healthy Persuaders are usually good listeners, inspirational teachers and loyal friends. They tend to be very generous with their time and they will usually drop just about anything if someone needs to talk or needs their help. They can become so absorbed in the needs and emotions of the people around them that they can lose sight of their own needs. People who don’t share this tendency can see the Persuader as “trying too hard” or too concerned with what other people think. Persuaders may be were misjudged as being “phony”, “fake” or “too bubbly”. Usually these kinds of judgments come from people who are introverts and do not realize that there is nothing fake about it; it’s just the way Persuaders are wired. They try to show the real, authentic parts of themselves that are needed for the occasion and will often put their own needs and desires aside for the needs and desires of the people they care about.

Observed as the Grumbling Griper™. When impersonal reasoning interferes with their ability to build quality relationships.

Observed as the Complaint Machine™. Persuaders are often seen as forward moving and positive people, which makes them appear less like complainers. They prefer to focus on getting things done and rarely have time to sit still. The fact that Persuaders are always pushing themselves, often leaves little room for complaining. They also dislike being seen as negative and do not want their complaints to make them appear weak in anyway. Because of the Persuader's desire to be strong and capable, they will often avoid complaining to others. They sometimes have a special person in their lives who they trust enough to share their complaints with, but this is very rare for the Persuaders. A rare Complaint Machine™.

Observed technique scoring Own Goals™.The Persuader sabotages their life by settling for less than deserved.

Caveat Lector™ Read the Behaviour Pattern so you do not have any surprises down the road. The Persuader may casually get you to confess your deepest, darkest childhood secrets over coffee and then use them against you if you ever seriously cross them.

Emeritus Prof. R.Kive™'s "More of a different kind": The effects of 100 years of aging on a Promoter.

Emeritus Prof. R.Kive™'s Habitsecrecy™: Does not want to tell but does.

Emeritus Prof. R.Kive™'s Streetwalker Observatory™: The one giving money to the homeless.

Emeritus Prof. R.Kive™'s Excuse Machine Rating™: 3. (Mid) Uses excuses to cover up mistakes.

Emeritus Prof. R.Kive™'s Feelings Hurter™ - what will offend the Persuader: Selfishness. (Especially when it relates to those less well off.)

Propensity to exaggerate: Becomes intrusive, prying; Ignores/denies problems for sake of fake harmony; Lacks focus, becomes scattered; Over-identifies with others, becomes overburdened.

Under pressure: Harbours hurt feelings, tendency to manipulate, tendency to smother, overly idealistic, too selfless, bad at making decisions, fluctuating self-esteem.

Virtue or Sin: Patience (Assigned Virtue by this site)- Endurance under difficult circumstances; steadfast.

Self-Improvement: Beware of placing a bit too much trust in people and possibly get burned in the process.


6. Can it be the Appraiser - ESFJ

The Appraiser is the Great Dane

Emeritus Prof. R.Kive™'s One Worder Fault Summary™: Overbearing

Emeritus Prof. R.Kive™'s Chink Assessment™ (Achillies' heel): Can struggle to evaluate situations objectively. Tend to take things personally or feel insulted even when criticism was given constructively or there was no offence meant to be given. Can also become overly wrapped up in the cares of others and forget to take care of their own needs and desires.

Emeritus Prof. R.Kive™'s VII Deadly Sinz™: Hates conflict, blames themselves too much, uncomfortable with change, inflexible, needy, authoritarian.

Fault - Being caring too much about what others think. Appraisers lead with a judging function called Extroverted Feeling. Appraisers tend to be warm, compassionate and friendly. However, they also tend to look outside themselves for corresponding feelings of morale and acceptance from others. They are very sensitive to both praise and criticism and are anxious to conform to all legitimate expectations. Now this doesn’t mean they have no values of their own (they certainly do), but they do tend to care a lot about making sure that other people are happy with them. Their need for harmony and acceptance can seem silly to thinking types, who value pure logic over other people’s expectations. And silly to introverted feeling types who sort out their own emotions and do not care less what other people think. Other types have to understand that the need for acceptance to be expressed is just as vital to the Appraiser as the need for logic is for the dominant thinking types.

Observed as the Grumbling Griper™. When other people are not pleased with them.

Observed as the Complaint Machine™. Appraisers do not mind complaining when they are feeling frustrated or overwhelmed. They rarely complain to people they do not trust, and might feel like they are overwhelming them. They do not want to complain to people especially if they believe they are simply going to be a burden on them. Appraisers often want to appear strong and like they are in complete control of their lives. Complaining can often be perceived as a weakness, which makes them avoid this. When the Appraiser trusts someone though, they will often feel at ease venting their troubles to them. This often causes the Appraiser to complain more often than they realise, simply because they feel comfortable. A selective Complaint Machine™.

Observed technique scoring Own Goals™. The Appraiser sabotages their life by comparing it to everyone else’s.

Caveat Lector™ Read the Behaviour Pattern so you do not have any surprises down the road. The Appraiser may secretly expect you to return the million favours they have done for you, even though they claimed they do not want anything in return.

Emeritus Prof. R.Kive™'s "More of a different kind": The huge grin a Results person has when everyone pays attention to them.

Emeritus Prof. R.Kive™'s Habitsecrecy™: Does not want to tell but does.

Emeritus Prof. R.Kive™'s Streetwalker Observatory™: The parent pushing a stroller.

Emeritus Prof. R.Kive™'s Excuse Machine Rating™: 3. (Mid) Uses excuses to protect others.

Emeritus Prof. R.Kive™'s Feelings Hurter™ - what will offend the Appraiser: Trolling. (Just to get others upset.)

Propensity to exaggerate: Becomes intrusive, prying; Ignores/denies problems for sake of fake harmony; Lacks focus, becomes scattered; Over-identifies with others, becomes overburdened.

Under pressure: Hates conflict, blames themselves too much, uncomfortable with change, inflexible, needy, authoritarian.

Virtue or Sin: Temperance (Virtue Rank 6/7) - Espousal of moderation, marked by personal restraint. Control over excess such as abstinence, moderation, chastity, modesty, humility, prudence, self-regulation and control, forgiveness and mercy. Restraining some impulses such as sexual desire, vanity, or anger. Constant mindfulness of others and one's surroundings.

Self-Improvement: Beware that your high enthusiasm may be seen by some as shallow or self absorbed.


7. Can it be the Promoter - ENFP?

The Promoter is the Golden Retriever

Emeritus Prof. R.Kive™'s One Worder Fault Summary™: Childish

Emeritus Prof. R.Kive™'s Chink Assessment™ (Achillies' heel): Demanding

Emeritus Prof. R.Kive™'s VII Deadly Sinz™: Trouble with conflict, can be manipulative, easily bored, bad at focussing, weak against stress, too independent, highly emotional.

Fault - Being an avoider of stability and security. Promoters are naturally adventurous and innovative. They don’t like doing things “by the book” and will usually turn down a risk-free lifestyle in favour of new experiences and challenges. They are the quintessential “ideas people” and they must follow their inspiration in order to have a fulfilled life. Other types may see their ever-shifting ventures and feel that they are “flighty” or “irresponsible” or "a poor finisher". They may be chided for turning down a good, secure job or a secure, long-term relationship. It’s important for people to remember that Promoters are naturally going to chase their dreams and visions and they will become bored and depressed in the same routine, structured life year after year. This isn’t to say that Promoters can’t commit sometimes; in fact, when they find a career or person they love they tend to be very loyal. Even so, they will always need some form of adventure and experimentation in their life and they will find ways to get it or they will be very unhappy people.

Observed as the Grumbling Griper™. When anyone expects them to follow through on projects they have committed to. When seen as hypocritical by others.

Observed as the Complaint Machine™. Promoters definitely do not like to complain about things and prefer to remain positive. They can become rather upset if they are around negative people for too long. When someone is complaining constantly, the Promoter becomes frustrated and often wants to get away from that person. Promoters prefer to look on the bright side of things, even when they are feeling down. Of course they do have times where they need to complain or vent about something, this is only when something serious is bothering them. Promoters simply dislike too much negative and often feel like it does not help them move forward. An avoiding Complaint Machine™.

Observed technique scoring Own Goals™. The Promoter sabotages their life by running away from everything real.

Caveat Lector™ Read the Behaviour Pattern so you do not have any surprises down the road. The Promoter may spontaneously move to Antarctica moments after making a serious commitment to you because they saw a picture of a penguin online that looked cute.

Emeritus Prof. R.Kive™'s "More of a different kind": A homicidal narcissist wearing a cut face mask of an Agent so everyone thinks they are innocent.

Emeritus Prof. R.Kive™'s Habitsecrecy™: Wants to tell and does not tell.

Emeritus Prof. R.Kive™'s Streetwalker Observatory™: The one that stops every few steps to appreciate the beauty of the world, oblivious to the chaos they are creating.

Emeritus Prof. R.Kive™'s Excuse Machine Rating™: 1. (=Market Leader) Concoct believable excuses within seconds that always should be investigated.

Emeritus Prof. R.Kive™'s Feelings Hurter™ - what will offend the Promoter: Apathy (by those who lack concern for others.)

Propensity to exaggerate: Are obsessed with/convinced of links between things; Wants change for the sake of change; Are over the top, frantic, out of control; Are swamped with options, can’t decide; Experience sudden, irrational change.

Example: Acting Senior Sergeant Damien Honsig-Erlenburg said drink driving laws applied to a range of situations, including while riding animals. “If it’s got wheels and it can transport you then it can be deemed as a vehicle.” Ms Maguire was charged with being in charge of a horse while under the influence of liquor and is due to face the Beenleigh Magistrates Court on June 26. Fielding Chase™, the Elevanto expositor, says it's the nine.com.au reporter who is the Promoter here by actually reporting this garbage without thinking what a fool the Sergeant really is.

Under pressure: Trouble with conflict, can be manipulative, easily bored, bad at focussing, weak against stress, too independent, highly emotional.

Virtue or Sin: Kindness (Virtue Rank 2/7) - Behaviour marked by ethical characteristics, a pleasant disposition and concern for others. Charity, compassion, friendship, and sympathy without prejudice and for its own sake.

Self-Improvement: Be aware of overusing your enthusiastic attitude to the point of becoming obtrusive.


8. Can it be the Counselor - ESFP

The Counselor is the Poodle

Emeritus Prof. R.Kive™'s One Worder Fault Summary™: Impatient

Emeritus Prof. R.Kive™'s Chink Assessment™ (Achillies' heel): Can struggle to see the future implications of their current decisions. They might “leap before they look” and wind up regretting it later. They over-commit to things that sound positive and then become exhausted later trying to keep up with everything they signed up for. This can result in them habitually running late or forgetting appointments they made because they just over-filled their schedule.

Emeritus Prof. R.Kive™'s VII Deadly Sinz™: Cannot take criticism, bad at long-term commitments, takes things personally, hedonistic, selfish, bored easily, unfocussed.

Fault - Being a seeker of too much attention. Counselors are often called “The Entertainers” and it’s not hard to see why. They enjoy making people laugh, smile and come alive. They have a natural enthusiasm and charisma that draws people in. The problem is certain people will not be as impressed by this as others. Some individuals find themselves jealous of the charm and outgoing good humour of the Counselor and may feel that it’s over-the-top or shallow. They may feel that the Counselor's humour and natural entertaining style is actually a need for constant attention and admiration. While some Counselors do really crave attention, many of them just enjoy making people happy. They see opportunities for fun and excitement everywhere and don’t want anyone to miss out.

Observed as the Grumbling Griper™. When people are not getting along.

Observed as the Complaint Machine™. Counselors are often seen as positive people, who dislike being dragged down by too much negativity. Counselors do feel the need to complain and vent about their troubles. They do not have the ability to bottle up their emotions, and often need to express them to others. Counselors are simply very open people and do best when they can be honest and express themselves. They will often complain about something that is bothering them and only want their loved ones to understand and be compassionate towards them. An emotional Complaint Machine™.

Observed technique scoring Own Goals™. The Counselor sabotages their life by refusing to take it seriously.

Caveat Lector™ Read the Behaviour Pattern so you do not have any surprises down the road. The Counselor may appear to be significantly more invested in your relationship than you are, while actually being significantly less invested in it than you are.

Emeritus Prof. R.Kive™'s "More of a different kind": The camouflaged version of a hidden nerdy Perfectionist.

Emeritus Prof. R.Kive™'s Habitsecrecy™: Wants to tell and does.

Emeritus Prof. R.Kive™'s Streetwalker Observatory™: The one playing music on the corner for money.

Emeritus Prof. R.Kive™'s Excuse Machine Rating™: 5. (Low) Prefers to be sincere rather than using excuses.

Emeritus Prof. R.Kive™'s Feelings Hurter™ - what will offend the Counselor: Judgmental, know all behaviour. (Labeling.)

Propensity to exaggerate: Speaks and acts without thinking; Becomes hyperactive; Chatters and disturbs others, disrupt; Are blunt and curt; Are pedantic – every detail is crucial.

Under pressure: Cannot take criticism, bad at long-term commitments, takes things personally, hedonistic, selfish, bored easily, unfocussed.

Virtue or Sin: Charity (Virtue Rank 5/7) - Love of God, but also to the love of neighbours. Generosity and a willingness to give. A nobility of thought or actions.

Self-Improvement: Be aware that you may be overly tolerant with individuals who are unproductive when considering your team's efforts.


9. Can it be the Specialist - ISFP

The Specialist is the Saint Bernard

Emeritus Prof. R.Kive™'s One Worder Fault Summary™: Flighty

Emeritus Prof. R.Kive™'s Chink Assessment™ (Achillies' heel): Can struggle to keep an objective frame of mind in their life decisions. They may take things personally that were not meant to be or they may make choices that are in line with their goals but lack the objective framework needed to become real. Backup is helpful from Enhancers, Developers, Perfectionists, Inspirationals, Achievers, Results, OTs or Directors in difficult decisions, e.g. firing, or if a plan to achieve a long-term goal is required.

Emeritus Prof. R.Kive™'s VII Deadly Sinz™: Avoids conflict, withdrawn, hard to get to know, fiercely independent, unpredictable, easily stressed, overly competitive.

Fault - Being overly sensitive. Specialists lead with a process called Introverted Feeling. As a result, they tend to hold their emotions close and their values even closer. They are very private about their emotions, but even so they are often deeply moved by injustice and harsh words. They may cry more easily than other types much to their own dismay. As very private individuals they’d prefer to keep their emotions more internalized, but when they are moved on the inside, it often shows in the form of tears on the outside. Specialists are highly sensitive and loving and feel everything personally and deeply. This sensitivity makes them passionate about the welfare of troubled and struggling people (or animals), but it can often be misconstrued for weakness by less understanding individuals.

Observed as the Grumbling Griper™. When they are asked to make decisions for other people.

Observed as the Complaint Machine™. Specialists do not like to complain, but can sometimes have a hard time keeping their feelings to themselves. If the Specialist has something that is bothering them, they will not find it easy to just bottle that up. They are open people, who have a depth of emotion inside of them. Specialists become extremely upset when they see injustices in the world around them and often feel a need to express this to other people. They are not whinging people, but they often have a hard time keeping their complaints quiet. An expressive Complaint Machine™.

Observed technique scoring Own Goals™. The Specialist sabotages their life by avoiding it.

Caveat Lector™ Read the Behaviour Pattern so you do not have any surprises down the road. The Specialist may completely disappear into the woodwork, never to be seen again, the minute they feel pressured or intimidated by you.

Emeritus Prof. R.Kive™'s "More of a different kind": A caring version of the Achiever.

Emeritus Prof. R.Kive™'s Habitsecrecy™: Does not want to tell and does not tell.

Emeritus Prof. R.Kive™'s Streetwalker Observatory™: The tattooed hipster with colourful clothing, probably wearing a fedora style hat.

Emeritus Prof. R.Kive™'s Excuse Machine Rating™: 5. (Low) Avoids making excuses.

Emeritus Prof. R.Kive™'s Feelings Hurter™ - what will offend the Specialist: Preying on vulnerable others. (Specialists are defenders of the marginalised.)

Propensity to exaggerate: Are rescuers; Carry the weight of the world on their shoulders; Isolate themselves; Become hypersensitive; Become pompous and demagogic.

Under pressure: Avoids conflict, withdrawn, hard to get to know, fiercely independent, unpredictable, easily stressed, overly competitive.

Virtue or Sin: Diligence (Virtue Rank 4/7) - Steadfast application, assiduousness and industry, hard work. A zealous and careful nature in one's actions and work. Decisive work ethic. Budgeting one's time; monitoring one's own activities to guard against laziness.

Self-Improvement: Be aware that you may hold too much to past tradition in both procedures and processes.


10. Can it be the Investigator - INFJ?

The Investigator is the Greyhound

Emeritus Prof. R.Kive™'s One Worder Fault Summary™: Perfectness

Emeritus Prof. R.Kive™'s Chink Assessment™ (Achillies' heel): Can become blind to practical realities that might interfere with their ideas. They are so big-picture oriented they can choose to ignore nitty-gritty details that later come back to trip them up. Married to their own views and insights, generally kept to themselves, that they can be dismissive of people with competing views and be single-minded and totally inflexible. Sharing their ideas helps them to be aware of flaws or details that might get in the way.

Emeritus Prof. R.Kive™'s VII Deadly Sinz™: Trouble with conflict, can be manipulative, easily bored, needs to have a “cause,” burns out easily, reserved, overly sensitive.

Fault - Being stuck in the head. Investigators tend to be consumed with an inner vision for their lives. This moves from image to image, chasing after every possibility in the subconscious. Investigators find themselves pre-occupied by affirming existence by questions, by forecasts, by symbolic apprehensions or insights that lead them. They can become so wrapped up in understanding how to make sense of their intuitions or how to understand them more fully that they lose sight of the outside world. Reality does not exist - in place are fruitless fantasies. This is exactly the kind of judgment that many people can make against Investigators; that they are so focused on their ideas, dreams and visions that they lose sight of what’s happening around them and the practical needs of the day. It’s important to remember that Investigators are known for their vision and insight and this ability shouldn’t be stifled, but at the same time they need to remember to use their auxiliary support process to engage with the outer world and find balance and to attempt to do it with tact.

Observed as the Grumbling Griper™. When there is any conflict that interferes with their artistic vision.

Observed as the Complaint Machine™. Investigators are the type of people who rarely complain to strangers or people they are not close to. They will likely suck it up and go through their day with a guarded smile on their face, even if something is bothering them. When the Investigator trusts and cares for someone deeply, they become an entirely different person. They will feel comfortable enough with that person to vent about their troubles and will not be so afraid to complain. They may get a little nervous on rare occasions and become fearful that their complaints will upset their loved ones. Investigators do not enjoy being negative, but they can become bothered by the injustices in the world around them. A frequent Complaint Machine™.

Observed technique scoring Own Goals™. The Investigator sabotages their life by chasing perfection.

Caveat Lector™ Read the Behaviour Pattern so you do not have any surprises down the road. The Investigator may be using their warm, cheerful persona to mask a cold and calculating interior.

Emeritus Prof. R.Kive™'s "More of a different kind": An insecure, master manipulator version of a Persuader.

Emeritus Prof. R.Kive™'s Habitsecrecy™: Does not want to tell but does.

Emeritus Prof. R.Kive™'s Streetwalker Observatory™: The political activist or protestor.

Emeritus Prof. R.Kive™'s Excuse Machine Rating™: 3. (Mid) Uses excuses to apologise for own actions but makes excuses for loved ones.

Emeritus Prof. R.Kive™'s Feelings Hurter™ - what will offend the Investigator: Condescending Attitude. (Talking down to them or just anything!)

Propensity to exaggerate: Have unrealistic expectations; Are arrogant about their ideas; Are overly complex – everything is connected; Force data to fit their own ideas and patterns; Are driven inward and will not ask for help.

Under pressure: Trouble with conflict, can be manipulative, easily bored, needs to have a “cause,” burns out easily, reserved, overly sensitive.

Virtue or Sin: Chastity (Virtue Rank 7/7) - Sexual behaviour that is acceptable to the moral standards and guidelines of their culture, civilization or religion. Sexual abstinence, especially before marriage.

Self-Improvement: Be aware that you might need to reduce “either/or” thinking and realize that “both/and” solutions are possible.


11. Can it be the Agent - INFP?

The Agent is the Tibetan Terrier

Emeritus Prof. R.Kive™'s One Worder Fault Summary™: Whinger

Emeritus Prof. R.Kive™'s Chink Assessment™ (Achillies' heel): Feel things so deeply that sometimes they struggle to see things objectively. They tend to assume that words spoken are meant in a personal way so they can get their feelings hurt or take things personally that were not meant to be insulting. Because they are often non-confrontational types they may drop people or harbour resentment rather than confronting the issue and clearing up the confusion. They may also turn their hurt inwards and blame themselves for being “too sensitive”.

Emeritus Prof. R.Kive™'s VII Deadly Sinz™: Reacts emotionally, extreme dislike of criticism, blames themselves, impractical, dislikes dealing with data, reserved, too altruistic (unselfish).

Fault - Being totally unrealistic. Agents are intensely imaginative and passionate individuals. They have high ideals that they strive to live up to and bring into reality. Unfortunately many people just don’t “get” the Agent's way of thinking and they find their ideals to be unrealistic and impractical. (e.g. "Do androids dream of electric sheep?") They make it their mission to bring them down to earth and “help” them focus on the concrete realities of daily life. While unhealthy Agents can venture so far into a world of the imagination that they lose touch with their own realistic needs, most healthy Agents have a good balance of imagination and determination. What other people might see as a “pipe dream” many Agents are able to accomplish if they believe in themselves. They need people who have faith in them, will encourage them and will also (kindly) remind them to take care of themselves and their practical needs. Agents are natural dreamers and without their passion and imagination we wouldn’t have people like William Shakespeare, Hans Christian Andersen or A.A. Milne.

Observed as the Grumbling Griper™. When anyone expects them to deal with the mundane details of life.

Observed as the Complaint Machine™. Agents are very introverted people which often means they keep their feelings to themselves. When it comes to people the Agent does not feel extremely close to, they will likely be quiet and reserved. When the Agent trusts and cares for someone, they are much more open expressing themselves to them. The Agent feels things very deeply, which often means they need to vent about these feelings. When an Agent cares for someone they often want to share every part of themselves with that individual. They will likely feel the need to complain about their troubles, but they also want to hear what that person has to say. A venting Complaint Machine™.

Observed technique scoring Own Goals™. The Agent sabotages their life by checking out of it.

Caveat Lector™ Read the Behaviour Pattern so you do not have any surprises down the road. The Agent may be ten million times more twisted and deranged in their thinking than their innocent demeanor would lead you to believe.

Emeritus Prof. R.Kive™'s "More of a different kind": The hormonal teenager side of themselves a Specialist would rather hide.

Emeritus Prof. R.Kive™'s Habitsecrecy™: Wants to tell and does not tell.

Emeritus Prof. R.Kive™'s Streetwalker Observatory™: The one who crosses the street against a red light because they were too busy daydreaming.

Emeritus Prof. R.Kive™'s Excuse Machine Rating™: 4. (Lower) Uses small excuses to avoid hurting someone.

Emeritus Prof. R.Kive™'s Feelings Hurter™ - what will offend the Agent: Hypocrisy. (Those who do not practice what they preach.)

Propensity to exaggerate: Are rescuers; Carry the weight of the world on their shoulders; Isolate themselves; Become hypersensitive; Become pompous and demagogic.

Under pressure: Reacts emotionally, extreme dislike of criticism, blames themselves, impractical, dislike dealing with data, reserved, too altruistic (unselfish).

Virtue or Sin: Forgiveness (Virtue Rank 3/7) - Forbearance and endurance through moderation. Resolving conflicts peacefully, as opposed to resorting to violence. The ability to forgive; to show mercy to sinners.

Self-Improvement: Be aware that you may prefer to maintain silent in a negative situation rather than to work in a pro-active way to create changes.


12. Can it be the Achiever - ISTP?

The Achiever is the Bassett Hound

Emeritus Prof. R.Kive™'s One Worder Fault Summary™: Unpredictable

Emeritus Prof. R.Kive™'s Chink Assessment™ (Achillies' heel): Can struggle to deal with interpersonal conflicts. They may come across as tactless or dismissive to people who are responding emotionally to something or they may brush off conflict with another person instead of dealing with it face-to-face. This can result in strained relationships.

Emeritus Prof. R.Kive™'s VII Deadly Sinz™: Emotionally uncomfortable, bad at long-term planning, insensitive, stubborn, reserved, easily bored, risky.

Fault - Being lazy or unmotivated. Achievers like to see all the pieces of a puzzle before making a decision. If they’re in a crisis they can act quickly. However, when it comes to deciding on a job, whether or not to get married or when to complete homework, they prefer to mull over information and get all the facts before deciding. When people judge Achievers as “lazy” it’s usually because a) The Achiever doesn’t feel they have enough information to move forward or b) They’ve found a “shortcut” for completing a task that doesn’t line up with bureaucratic rules. If the Achiever is actually bored with a project they’re given they will generally find the fastest way possible to accomplish it. This may bug other types who favour procedure and routine over efficiency. This disregard for the “way it’s always been done” can lead to judgments about the Achiever being lazy instead of following the rules.

Observed as the Grumbling Griper™. When there is no productive action to take immediately.

Observed as the Complaint Machine™. Achievers like to complain in a more sarcastic way and enjoy using humor as a way to deflect. They rarely feel the need to openly complain and might believe it is a waste of energy. Achievers prefer to focus on the things that they enjoy, rather than focusing on the negative things in life. They prefer to live in the present instead of dwelling on the past, which causes them to complain much less. Achievers are often seen as more laid back individuals, because they do not let themselves become stressed for no reason. A sarcastic Complaint Machine™.

Observed technique scoring Own Goals™. The Achiever sabotages their life by staying cynical.

Caveat Lector™ Read the Behaviour Pattern so you do not have any surprises down the road. The Achiever may take off on a solo adventure for weeks at a time without making any contact to loved ones or the outside world.

Emeritus Prof. R.Kive™'s "More of a different kind": It is what you get when you take out the batteries of a Counselor.

Emeritus Prof. R.Kive™'s Habitsecrecy™: Does not want to tell and does not tell.

Emeritus Prof. R.Kive™'s Streetwalker Observatory™: The hot construction worker.

Emeritus Prof. R.Kive™'s Excuse Machine Rating™: 2. (High) Uses excuses to avoid getting into deeper trouble.

Emeritus Prof. R.Kive™'s Feelings Hurter™ - what will offend the Achiever: Teasing. (Especially if it is personal.)

Propensity to exaggerate: Obsessively searches for the truth about everything; Gets lost in concentration – forgets the basics; Accept only their own logic; Become detached and machine-like.

Under pressure: Emotionally uncomfortable, bad at long-term planning, insensitive, stubborn, reserved, easily bored, risky, workaholic.

Virtue or Sin: Humility (Virtue Rank 1/7) - Act or posture of lowering oneself in relation to others; having a clear perspective and respect for one's place in context. Modest behaviour, selflessness and the giving of respect. Giving credit where credit is due; not unfairly glorifying one's own self.

Self-Improvement: Be aware that you could use more people skills in motivating and managing others. Attend to work / life imbalance caused by workaholic tendencies.


13. Can it be the Practitioner - ISFJ?

The Practitioner is the Alaskan Malamute

Emeritus Prof. R.Kive™'s One Worder Fault Summary™: Naive

Emeritus Prof. R.Kive™'s Chink Assessment™ (Achillies' heel): Can struggle to see possibilities or options that do not already exist. They can become so focused on using methods that they know and trust that they struggle to find new solutions when unusual problems arise. Can also struggle to see the big picture at times, becoming fixated on details and trying to deal with them without considering the long-term future impacts. Associates who are Agents, Promoters, Investigators, Persuaders, Enhancers, Developers, Perfectionists and Inspirationals can assist to see the bigger picture and likely future implications.

ISTJ

Emeritus Prof. R.Kive™'s VII Deadly Sinz™: Neglects own needs, hates change, takes criticism personally, unassertive of feelings, too altruistic (unselfish), takes things personally, perfectionist.

Fault - Being worried too much. Practitioners like to know what to expect and they tend to fear uncertainty and the unknown. They like to order their lives in such a way that risks are avoided and the people in their lives are carefully tended to. They dislike uncertainties, abstractions and not knowing what the future will hold. They can be very protective about the people in their lives, especially their families and can worry about many negative possibilities and risks that they might be exposed to. They tend to be judged for being “over-protective” or too worried about risks and uncertainties. People on the outside might give them a hard time and tell them to “loosen up” more and to “enjoy today, because tomorrow has enough trouble of its own”. Unfortunately, these kinds of empty lines only work to further frustrate the Practitioners instead of helping them.

Observed as the Grumbling Griper™. When they lack positive feedback or receive unwarranted criticism.

Observed as the Complaint Machine™. Practitioners are the quiet complainers and will not do so in a big or obnoxious way. They will often hint at the things that are bothering them, in the hope that people will take notice. The Practitioner does not want to shove things done other people’s throats, so they often take things in stride. When the Practitioner has something that is getting on their nerves, they will likely find a “subtle” way to express this to them. They want to be able to let time change things, without having to force someone. A quiet Complaint Machine™.

Observed technique scoring Own Goals™. The Practitioner sabotages their life by believing they are not worthy of a good one.

Caveat Lector™ Read the Behaviour Pattern so you do not have any surprises down the road. The Practitioner may secretly resent you for years without you ever remotely suspecting it.

Emeritus Prof. R.Kive™'s "More of a different kind": The momentary pause an Appraiser takes when talking.

Emeritus Prof. R.Kive™'s Habitsecrecy™: Wants to tell and does not tell.

Emeritus Prof. R.Kive™'s Streetwalker Observatory™: The 'little old lady' or equivalent.

Emeritus Prof. R.Kive™'s Excuse Machine Rating™: 1. (=Market Leader) An excuse machine on steroids who is always the victim and uses excuses to avoid upsetting someone.

Emeritus Prof. R.Kive™'s Feelings Hurter™ - what will offend the Practitioner: Rudeness. (And those who encroach on others.)

Propensity to exaggerate: Fixates on the one ‘right’ fact; Obsesses about minutiae and unimportant details; Are dogmatic; Become unables to make decisions or take action; Shuts down, withdraws.

Under pressure: Neglects own needs, hates change, is susceptible to negative thinking which may lead to a depressed attitude and additional resistance to change. With extreme or chronic stress, starts imagining all the negative possible outcomes and worst case scenarios, takes criticism personally, unassertive of feelings, too altruistic (having unselfish concern for the welfare of others), takes things personally, stickler.

Virtue or Sin: Reaction to social pressures (Assigned sin by this site) - Anger, impatience, touchiness, or of having a sensitive nature. Often resentment and retaliation when disapproved or contradicted. This area of sin may generate jealousy, sour grapes, envy and the accompanying bitterness, hatred, carrying of grudges, revenge tactics and so forth.

Self-Improvement: Be aware that when under pressure you may become overly sensitive to criticism.


14. Can it be the Objective Thinker - ISTJ?

The Objective Thinker is the Bernese Mountain Dog

Emeritus Prof. R.Kive™'s One Worder Fault Summary™: Rigid

Emeritus Prof. R.Kive™'s Chink Assessment™ (Achillies' heel): Can be overly-skeptical of new ways of doing things. Can be too reliant on tried-and-true methods that they fail to see innovations or changes as positive. Can lose sight of the forest "because of the trees".

Emeritus Prof. R.Kive™'s VII Deadly Sinz™: Too rigid, needs to be right, not in tune with feelings, “by the book,” blames themselves, judgmental, stubborn.

Fault - Being repetitious and not trying new things. OT's lead with a process called Introverted Sensing, a perceiving function and OTs like routine and knowing what to expect. The more they repeat the same process favourably, the more they like to incorporate that process into their routine. Many OTs like the same meals over again, the same schedules and they like going to the same familiar places. This doesn’t mean they can’t ever be adventurous or try novel things, in fact many of them go through spurts of time where they do attempt new or unusual things. They can also be innovative, but are very cautious and meticulous about their innovations. Even so, to outsiders, OTs often look like people who should “shake things up” and try new and different meals, activities and routines.

Observed as the Grumbling Griper™. When there is not a clearly defined plan of action.

Observed as the Complaint Machine™. OTs definitely dislike complaining too much, simply because they keep most things to themselves. They can have a somewhat cynical personality at times and might use humor as a way to vent about things. OTs have moments where their sarcasm comes out immensely and this is often their way of complaining to others, but in a more guarded way. It helps them vent without people taking it too seriously, since OTs often are capable of handling things themselves. They do not want people to dote on them, which is why they do not want to outwardly complain. A guarded Complaint Machine™.

Observed technique scoring Own Goals™. The OT sabotages their life by refusing to take risks.

Caveat Lector™ Read the Behaviour Pattern so you do not have any surprises down the road. The OT may accidentally make you feel awful about yourself because they basically lack moral vices of any kind.

Emeritus Prof. R.Kive™'s "More of a different kind": A rule oriented Enhancer who has never never been tempted to be a rebel.

Emeritus Prof. R.Kive™'s Habitsecrecy™: Does not want to tell and does not tell.

Emeritus Prof. R.Kive™'s Streetwalker Observatory™: The tourist with a map.

Emeritus Prof. R.Kive™'s Excuse Machine Rating™: 5. (Low) Avoids excuses as they lead to failures and future mistakes.

Emeritus Prof. R.Kive™'s Feelings Hurter™ - what will offend the OT: Breaking your word. (Shirk, break commitments or are wishy washy.)

Propensity to exaggerate: Fixates on the one ‘right’ fact; Obsesses about minutiae and unimportant details; Are dogmatic; Become unables to make decisions or take action; Shuts down, withdraws.

Under pressure: Too rigid, needs to be right, not in tune with feelings, “by the book,” blame themselves, judgmental, stubborn.

Virtue or Sin: Gluttony (Sin Rank 6/7) - Over indulgences of anything to the extreme, usually food or drink. Alcoholism, drug abuse. "The most delicious meats may be eaten without sin, if the motive be good and worthy of a rational creature; and, in taking the coarsest food through attachment to pleasure, there may be a fault." Pope Innocent XI.

Self-Improvement: Be aware that you may be extremely cautious about decision making so as to avoid acting without a firm precedent.


15. Can it be the Perfectionist - INTP?

The Perfectionist is the Papillon

Emeritus Prof. R.Kive™'s One Worder Fault Summary™: Lazy

Emeritus Prof. R.Kive™'s Chink Assessment™ (Achillies' heel): Little patience for people who cannot “keep up” with their way of thinking. Can seem tactless, arrogant and out of touch with the needs of others. Get impatient with people who need more information or who talk about subjects they see as trivial and unimportant. Can fall into the habit of assuming they know what someone else is going to say, therefore tuning them out so they can think about more interesting subjects.

Emeritus Prof. R.Kive™'s VII Deadly Sinz™: Explosive, distrusting and critical of others, reserved, insensitive, condescending, hates rules, always self-criticises.

Fault - Being too insensitive. Perfectionists favour objective honesty and this comes through clearly in their speech. They may unwittingly offend other people because they do not realise that their delivery seems overly direct and detached. This can be a major source of frustration for Perfectionists because they actually do care about the people in their lives more than most people realise. They are often caught off guard when people call them insensitive because they are rarely mean-spirited and would rather avoid conflict or hurting other people’s feelings if they could. They appreciate objective honesty in others, so they have a hard time understanding why other people would not feel the same. When they care about someone, they tell them the truth. So if a Perfectionist you love is being a little “too” honest with you, just remember that “sugarcoating” is probably not a sign they respect you.

Observed as the Grumbling Griper™. When practical considerations interfere with their creative potential.

Observed as the Complaint Machine™. Perfectionists can sometimes complain about things that frustrate them, without even realising they are doing it. They will often complain in a well thought out and logical manner, which can easily be disguised as debate. Perfectionists become frustrated with people and their stupidity rather easily and often feel overwhelmed by an inability to change certain things. Because of this, the Perfectionist often needs to be able to vent about their frustrations and do best when they have someone who is willing to listen to them. Having someone who is open to listening to their complaints is truly a wonderful feeling for the Perfectionist, since they realise that most people are not great listeners. An automatic Complaint Machine™.

Observed technique scoring Own Goals™. The Perfectionist sabotages their own life by refusing help.

Caveat Lector™ Read the Behaviour Pattern so you do not have any surprises down the road. The Perfectionist may fact check literally everything you say and catch you in any attempt at a lie or exaggeration.

Emeritus Prof. R.Kive™'s "More of a different kind": The Dr. Jekyll (good) version of an Inspirational Mr. Hyde (evil).

Emeritus Prof. R.Kive™'s Habitsecrecy™: Does not realize it was a secret.

Emeritus Prof. R.Kive™'s Streetwalker Observatory™: The one wearing a star wars shirt sitting on a bench on their phone playing games.

Emeritus Prof. R.Kive™'s Excuse Machine Rating™: 3. (Mid) Makes excuses for their actions that are in response to buried emotions.

Emeritus Prof. R.Kive™'s Feelings Hurter™ - what will offend the Perfectionist: Guilt tripping. (Emotional manipulation rather than just saying it.)

Propensity to exaggerate: Obsessively searches for the truth about everything; Gets lost in concentration – forgets the basics; Accepts only their own logic; Becomed detached and machine-like.

Under pressure: Explosive, distrusting & critical of others, reserved, insensitive, condescending, hates rules, always self-criticises.

Virtue or Sin: Envy (Sin Rank 2/7) - Spite and resentment at seeing the success of another. Emotion which occurs when a person lacks another's superior quality, achievement, or possession and either desires it or wishes that the other lacked it. The need to have better or be better than others. In extreme cases, may turn to voyeurism to feed the need to see what others have that the envious person wants.

Self-Improvement: Be aware that you might become rather stubborn once you have made up your mind on a decision or procedure.


16. Can it be the Enhancer - INTJ?

The Enhancer is the Afghan Hound

Emeritus Prof. R.Kive™'s One Worder Fault Summary™: Insensitive

Emeritus Prof. R.Kive™'s Chink Assessment™ (Achillies' heel): Very ambitious in pursuit of their vision. Can struggle to bring their ideas and insights into the real world. Can lose track of nitty-gritty details that can eventually trip them up (minor - where they put their keys), (major - might make a huge plan to achieve their vision and it might fall apart because they did not realistically assess all the details needed to make it happen, including playing politics).

Emeritus Prof. R.Kive™'s VII Deadly Sinz™: Unwilling to take blame, arrogant, insensitive, judgmental, overly analytical, horrible at romance, hates rules.

Fault - Being cold and calculating. Enhancers are intensely strategic and visionary. They favour logic and rational thought over their own emotions and feelings and will usually be confused by people who do the opposite. They do not pass the test for fun and usually get thrown under the bus by Directors, Results, Appraisers and Counselors. They consider the big picture and have little patience for extraneous details and feelings that might get in the way. People often misinterpret their direct speech and shrewd nature with meanness or snobbery, but what they need to realise is that Enhancers are honest and direct with the people they care about. They would consider it an insult to have messages “sugarcoated” for them so they refuse to do this to others. They favour bold honesty and are put off by social niceties that get in the way of the truth. It isn’t that they do not detect social cues, such as unease, but they decide to plow through as if it does not matter.
Significantly, Enhancers think very differently from most. They are all about logic, fact, evidence, test and response. They do not have opinions on matters where they do not have enough information. Enhancers only express opinions when they are pretty sure they are right. Other patterns do not use this approach, except for Insptrationals who use these approaches on a short-term, argument winning basis. This means Enhancers cannot really interact sanely with the rest of humanity who think facts are relative and things like opinions or feelings are important in arguments. Enhancers are unconcerned about this aspect.

Observed as the Grumbling Griper™. When people do not see why their strategy is the best.

Observed as the Complaint Machine™. Enhancers do not mind complaining about certain things, especially when they are feeling frustrated. When the Enhancers trusts and enjoys someone as a person, they will feel more at ease expressing themselves with that individual. They will likely complain to them in a more sarcastic and witty manner, as a means to vent and get out of their frustrations. They likely will not be complaining a whinging way, but more in an amusing and funny tone. Enhancers do not like to complain to certain people, since they feel far too exposed by doing this. In most cases they prefer to keep these things to themselves, especially since it serves no productive purpose. A perpetual critical and skeptical Complaint Machine™.

Observed technique scoring Own Goals™. The Enhancer sabotages their life by closing off from it.

Caveat Lector™ Read the Behaviour Pattern so you do not have any surprises down the road. The Enhancer may lead you into various conversational traps through which you have no choice but to admit that your logic is flawed.

Emeritus Prof. R.Kive™'s "More of a different kind": The hairball (Rapunzel) complex of an Investigator where they will never want to admit how much they care.

Emeritus Prof. R.Kive™'s Habitsecrecy™: Does not want to tell and does not tell.

Emeritus Prof. R.Kive™'s Streetwalker Observatory™: The one who’s silently judging everyone.

Emeritus Prof. R.Kive™'s Excuse Machine Rating™: 3. (Mid) Makes excuses when someone is wasting the Enhancer's time.

Emeritus Prof. R.Kive™'s Feelings Hurter™ - what will offend the Enhancer: Making assumptions. (Others jumping to conclusions when the Enhancer is in mid sentence.)

Propensity to exaggerate: Have unrealistic expectations; Are arrogant about their ideas; Are overly complex – everything is connected; Force data to fit their own ideas and patterns; Are driven inward and will not ask for help.

Under pressure: Unwilling to take blame, arrogant, insensitive, judgmental, overly analytical, totally woeful at romance, hates rules.

Virtue or Sin: Greed (Sin Rank 5/7) - A need for material possessions or wealth. If this need is unfed, a greedy person may resort to hoarding their goods, theft, robbery or obtaining material possessions by means of trickery, violence, deception, or manipulation. Greedy people may be easy to bribe, may take any bet or may do anything for a dollar. "Greed clarifies, cuts through, and captures the essence of the evolutionary spirit. Greed, in all of its forms; greed for life, for money, for love, knowledge has marked the upward surge of mankind." Gordon Gekko.

Self-Improvement: Be aware of your overuse of bluntness, critical comments and attitude of aloofness.


Addendum about the Enhancer.

"I am lost in my own head, furthering my own agendas and doing my own thing. Alone. Intentionally. I do not want to be distracted. I typically do not need anybody for anything. Unless you are a workplace that offers something enticing to occupy my ravenous mind, I cannot be distracted.
However, my mental frenzy is not a selfish pursuit. My goal is the continual improvement of everything imaginable and I am doing it for the greater good of humanity.
I do not offer the slightest crack, weakness or vulnerability for anybody to use as a means to infiltrate my concrete shell exterior. You will know nothing about me and have nothing to use as leverage. If you can conjure something amazing and get any opportunity to penetrate this barrier, there is a chance I will drop everything and make your happiness my plan, my goal and my priority. I will devise a way to put the universe (everything you have ever dreamed of) in the palm of your hands. But only if I deem you worthy. And, to make matters worse, that offer only lasts for as long as you can continue to exhaust yourself by keeping me interested.
If I do not see continual improvement, my priorities will be updated to rectify the inefficiency. I will go right back to doing my own thing leaving you to wonder if I even recognise you anymore. Pretty tough to deal with, right? Impossible. After a lifetime of lessons learned along the way and lots of soul searching, I eventually outgrew that dreaded personality specific Insufferable Bastard Syndrome and toned down my eccentric nature. That is because I am one of the smart Enhancers."
