1. Can it be the Director - ESTJ?
How Revenge is implemented: Directors are dangerous because they are so very competent and effective at almost anything they do. Their natural leadership ability allows them to just waltz in and take over the show but others tend to appreciate having someone who seems to know what they are doing. Directors are able to acquire power and status through their rocket-propelled career path and are likely to occupy positions where they get to make important decisions that affect many people. Revenge will most likely take place in professional areas. Would 10/10 sabotage a colleague out of revenge or jealousy or pettiness because their victim was promoted or favoured or the Director is threatened by them.
As your enemy: Directors generally avoid making an enemy out of you. However, Directors are very aggressive and do have a tendency to push your buttons. Directors are unafraid of having enemies and will come at you outwardly instead of subtly. They will probably attempt to intimidate you into backing down and will find ways to make you feel threatened, maybe even physically.
Why you are loathed: Because you publicly humiliated the Director!
Revenge style: They Usurp You.
2. Can it be the Developer - ENTJ?
Inflamed by: People the Developer dislikes. These people will be verbally disembowelled. May come after others if bored and thinks it is actually fun.
How Revenge is implemented: Developers are very dangerous because they can run a tight ship and crush their competitors with it. They are very competent and whatever they set out to do, it is wise not to bet against them. They have an enormous amount of belief in themselves and they have tremendous vision and perseverance to allows them to bring to fruition grand ambitions others would not have thought possible. You do not want to have an Developer as your enemy as they have no compunction in crushing you for revenge. If if you somehow know they’re plotting against you, it is because they want you to know by Developers will allow others to get a taste of their revenge plan. Their plan will not fail, but you may be able to convince them to show mercy by submitting to their will completely. You have been warned.
As your enemy: Developers can be very aggressive and resourceful enemies. They may attempt to use intimidation and / or confrontation to make you fearful of them. They are skilled at taking charge and if need be can be very good at putting pressure on you. They probably do not see you as enough of a threat to even consider you an enemy. However, if they do, they are probably very upfront about it and do not feel a need to hide their dislike of you.
Why you are loathed: Because the Developer thinks that you suck at life!
Revenge style: They Crush You.
3. Can it be the Results - ESTP?
How Revenge is implemented: Like the Appraiser, the Results person can leverage their popularity and social currency to turn everyone against you. Are very persuasive and adept at compelling others to see things their way. Because of this, are able to get away with things most people could not. They can use mind tricks and distract people with their charm and slick talk while causally picking their pockets and relieving them of their wrist watch and wallet in taking revenge. You have been warned.
As your enemy: Results folk usually do not feel a need for making an enemy out of you. If they do, they will probably attempt to convince themselves they had no choice in the matter. They may talk negatively about you in an attempt to deter others from you them. Results folk are not at all afraid of conflict.
Why you are loathed: Because the Results says that you never want to go outside!
Revenge style: They Trick You.
4. Can it be the Inspirational - ENTP?
How Revenge is implemented: Inspirationals have the ability to psychologically manipulate and cause others to second guess what they thought they knew. This is Machiavelli’s philosophy: manipulation — a calculating, duplicitous and amoral personality, focussed on self-interest and personal gain. The Inspirational routinely recognizes a manifold of alternatives and contingencies that allow them to anticipate and find loopholes and work around restrictions put up against them. They can create clever mouse traps that ensnare others while evading the tricks set against them. The Inspirational can be like a cunning con artist in their ability to manipulate and fabricate tall tales. You are advised to proceed with extreme caution and guard against being cunningly manipulated. Inspirationals will not be ashamed of talking loudly about their revenge plots to their victim and the sad part about it, the victim is still going to succumb to their fate even after knowing how and when the revenge is going to take place. Inspirationals are cunning as an ess, aitch, one, tee house rat.
As your enemy: Inspirationals may try to smooth things over and tell you that you are a great person to be around. If an issue is not fixable, they may attempt to manipulate their friends into disliking you. They may continue to poke you if you do not come around, which will make things worse. They are sneaky.
Why you are loathed: Because you made the Inspirational feel really stupid!
Revenge style: They Manipulate You.
5. Can it be the Persuader - ENFJ?
How Revenge is implemented: The Persuader is dangerous because they seem to know everything about everyone while, in many ways, remaining mysterious to others. They can get you to open up to them and divulge personal details that they can later blackmail you with. Their warmth and congeniality can be something upon which some people depend as a source of comfort and encouragement. When withdrawn from their normally sunny temperament and become judgmental and harsh, it can be emotionally devastating to others who thought the Persuader could do no wrong. So watch out with divulging too much as this can come back as revenge. Can act as fake as all get out with a beautiful smile as they plot the darkest revenge plan behind their friendly demeanor and no one would ever suspect them being a revenge types, including their victim, and it will be too late when they do.
As your enemy: Persuaders will become angry towards you if you hurt one of their loved ones in some fashion. They will tend to hold onto grudges for a long time. They will be resentful if someone they have cared for treats them poorly for a long time. If a Persuader decides that you are their enemy they can be very aggressive towards you and you will be frightened. They may find ways to manipulate others into feeling negatively towards you as well and are very skilled at doing so.
Why you are loathed: Because you do not see the Persuader's point if view!
Revenge style: They Blackmail You.
6. Can it be the Appraiser - ESFJ
How Revenge is implemented: The Appraiser has their finger on the pulse of the groups they participate in. They have an ability to manipulate the group’s opinions of an individual and make everyone hate them. Can be two-faced and may appear loyal to some people when really they are loyal to someone else. Even though they are warm and friendly, the Appraiser's egotism can compel them to become petty and stoop to new lows when trying to stamp out their competition or people who threaten their popularity or status. This is how they take revenge.
As your enemy: Appraisers dislike the idea of making an enemy of you as they will tend to avoid being disliked. As their enemy an you can look forward to being shut out of their lives completely. If they are truly angry with you, they will rant and rave about you to others. In the end will pretend you do not exist. They may use manipulation to assassinate your character.
Why you are loathed: Because you never go anywhere with the Appraiser!
Revenge style: They Trample You.
7. Can it be the Promoter - ENFP?
How Revenge is implemented: There is more than one way to skin a cat and Promoters can think of
more ways than most people could. Promoters are dangerous because they can be manipulative and win people
over to their side using charm and charisma and sometimes wrap them around their little finger. Promoters
can acquire power and influence because of this and once they have it, it can be used responsibly or irresponsibly.
Promoters, fortunately, tend to have good values which they stick by. Against their enemies however, they can
be surprisingly cut throat and will not hesitate to permanently remove people from their lives who they
have deemed truly toxic, even in the environment of suspension of facts.
This is termed the 'Bitch Slap' - An outward attack towards another person. This attack is made using facts and logic collected, which may not be factual and logical. When 'wronged' or 'another person is wronged', will use a rather strong sense of righteous indignation to fuel their attack to ward off further hurt to making another person realise they were wrong. They use their collected 'facts' and 'information' as a way of tearing down the other person’s argument. They will bring up as many 'facts' as are necessary and aggressively and straightforwardly tear apart this person’s argument, finding ways to show them that they are wrong. The Promoter is mystified if challenged and you are dumped or you dump the Promoter, never to return. This is why the Promoter is 200% evil - see Obnoxiousness Explorer™.
As your enemy: If you dislike a Promoter, they will probably feel very shocked and want to try to rectify the situation while not feeling any aggression towards you. They are most likely to try to and force you to like them, by showing you their very best. If it comes to a point where you threaten a Promoter by way of your differing morals and moral values, they may attempt to turn others against you as a last resort.
Why you are loathed: Because the Promoter thinks that you hate the Promoter!
Revenge style: They Dump You.
8. Can it be the Counselor - ESFP
How Revenge is implemented: Counselors can use their sway and social clout to ostracize and marginalize other people. Although they are super friendly and happy, Counselors can become mean and spiteful against those who wrong them. They have power through popularity and to some people they can do no wrong. When Counselors receive to much acclaim, all the attention can go to their heads and they can become self-aggrandizing. It can lead to ill-advised and impulsive decisions and their impetuous, in-the-moment mentality can sometimes backfire and land them in hot water when taking revenge.
As your enemy: Counselors will usually ignore the presence of you as an enemy altogether. If they do feel the need to address this with you, they may resort to petty insults and trashing you name to make you go away.
Why you are loathed: Because Counselors can have a depressing or negative effect!
Revenge style: They Relegate You.
9. Can it be the Specialist - ISFP
How Revenge is implemented: It is easy to underestimate the Specialist because of their quiet and good-natured temperament. But they are also capable of intense emotional outbursts which can take others by surprise. When they are spurned or wronged by someone, they are capable of going to great lengths to exact revenge. Specialists may turn crazy when they get burned by someone and can attempt to humiliate or publicly shame them in retaliation. They may lash out in rather immature ways and impulsively say and do vicious, hurtful things they may later regret.
As your enemy: Specialists will be unlikely to see you as a enemy. They dislike conflict and keep to themselves most of the time. They do not feel the need to hold grudges and will generally just avoid you if you dislike them. Instead of addressing the conflict at hand, they will probably just step away from it.
Why you are loathed: Because you said that something the Specialist created was stupid!
Revenge style: They Put You In Your Place.
10. Can it be the Investigator - INFJ?
How Revenge is implemented: Investigators can conceal their true feelings from others and project an image or facade that is deceptive. They can be like social chameleons, reading the people they interact with and modifying their own behaviour to effectively blend in. The Investigator can pretend to be obtuse and harmless when in fact they notice and pick up a lot of information about people that can be deployed against them. Have a strong will and can shift from being altruistic (unselfish) to Machiavellian (cunning) when it comes to invoking revenge. Can act as fake as all get out with a beautiful smile as they plot the darkest revenge plan behind their friendly demeanor and no one would ever suspect them being a revenge types, including their victim, and it will be too late when they do.
As your enemy: Investigators can be extremely manipulative, seek out your weak points and be potentially hurtful. However, it would take a lot of pushing by you to cause that. You need to watch out for the Investigator as they can be two faced - the most kind and the most sinister. They will be spiteful towards you and may just shut you out of their lives as if you never existed.
Why you are loathed: Because you made the Investigator feel that their emotions were invalid!
Revenge style: They Deceive You.
11. Can it be the Agent - INFP?
How Revenge is implemented: Agents can sometimes be very calculating despite their delicate, insubstantial and impressionistic temperament. Others may not realize how analytical and observant they can be which can contribute to a compounding of internal strife and festering contempt unbeknown to others. Anger may consume them until finally they lash out without warning in revenge. The strength of an Agent's convictions can make it very difficult to talk them out of something irrational or crazy they believe to be “right” or “good” e.g. some cause such as animal welfare, human rights etc.
As your enemy: The Agent's worst enemy is often the Agent. They are usually harsher on themselves than they are other people. Although tend to avoid conflict and dislike making enemies. You will be an enemy if you are seen as dishonest or immoral in some way. Initially the Agent will probably attempt to avoid you and cut you out of their lives. In some cases the Agent will be very passive aggressive towards you and find subtle ways of showing disrespect to you, often by insult or criticism. You may have your character assassinated in front of others so that people see exactly what the Agent sees in you. If an Agent is outright aggressive towards you an Agent will probably feel very remorseful afterwards.
Why you are loathed: Because the Agent thinks you are fake!
Revenge style: They Vilify You.
12. Can it be the Achiever - ISTP?
How Revenge is implemented: While an Achiever is not necessarily a sociopath (anti social personality disorder), their lack of emotion and emotional responsiveness can make them appear like one. Achievers can detach themselves from their feelings and become cold and unempathetic. At worst, they may exhibit antisocial behaviour where they act out impulsively with little regard for their action’s impact on anyone else. Achievers can figure things out very quickly and are able to beat others to the punch. They are very daring and willing to take risks others are too afraid try when taking revenge. Also, they analyse their victim by breaking them down as if they are another piece of machinery or equipment to “fix.”
As your enemy: Achievers probably feel like having you as an enemy would be a complete waste of their time and they would do their best to avoid you. If you continued to bug them, they would probably address it honestly in an attempt to deter you. In the end the Achiever will ignore you until you go away. If it goes too far and you do not go away, be prepared for the Achiever to get physical.
Why you are loathed: Because the Achiever sees that you never want to try anything new!
Revenge style: They Menace You.
13. Can it be the Practitioner - ISFJ?
How Revenge is implemented: Practitioners are dangerous because anything you say and do can and will be held against you, forever until the end of time. Practitioners can be long suffering and forgiving but they have their limits and once reached they can shift from nurturing caregivers to being bitter, harsh-tempered or overbearing. The Practitioner will rely on their long memories and will never forget that embarrassing thing that happened to you and they can use that knowledge to blackmail you. They can hijack your conscience and send you on a guilt trip all the way to the edge of the milky way. Be careful!
As your enemy: The Practitioner will avoid making an enemy of you. However if you wrong the Practitioner, they may have a tendency to hold grudges for a long time but they will attempt to push it aside. Their anger may come out in passive aggressive ways, or they may use guilt manipulation.
Why you are loathed: Because you belittled the Practitioner's emotions!
Revenge style: They Turn Against You.
14. Can it be the Objective Thinker - ISTJ?
How Revenge is implemented: OTs are dangerous because they can float under the radar but pick up on a lot of what goes on around them in a covert, fly-on-the-wall kind of way. Others may forget an OT is even in the room because they are so quiet. OTs can become unmatched in their efficiency and quickness in completing tasks thanks in part to their focus and planning skills. If an OT wants to invoke revenge, they will likely formulate a perfect scheme that is well thought out down to the smallest details. Summary: They Scheme Against You.
As your enemy: The OT will tend to keep to themselves and avoid unnecessary conflict. However, if the OT feels like you are encroaching in on their lives or possibly effecting their chance of promotion, they may become angry. They are most likely to find subtle and strategic ways to overcome your actions instead of outright aggression.
Why you are loathed: Because the OT cannot count on you for anything!
Revenge style: They Scheme Against You.
15. Can it be the Perfectionist - INTP?
How Revenge is implemented: Perfectionists refrain from saying a lot of what enters their mind. This is often to other’s benefit because Perfectionists can say some pretty scathing (and accurate) insults that cut straight to the heart. Perfectionists can be a bane to insecure managers who do not appreciate them calling out the fault in their reasoning in front of everyone and making them looking illogical and foolish. Perfectionists are dangerous because they can piece together the most cryptic clues and uncover secrets and substantial information they were not meant to know. It is wise not to lie. Perfectionists are also capable of intense anger when dealing with senseless people. Although not as charismatic as the Developer or sneaky as the Enhancer, Perfectionists are still brilliant in their own right and their brilliance is a terrible force to be reckoned with if you get on their bad side. Their planning is scientific and methodical, but there is a chance of them sparing the person if they dissect the pros and cons of bringing the hammer down and if they conclude there are too many risks. You have been warned, especially if you are dealing with the Perfectionist when they are in the role of a customer and your product or service is defective.
As your enemy: The Perfectionist is more likely to avoid you if they dislike you and often do not enjoy making enemies. A mature Perfectionist will find this pointless and will desire to squash the problem if possible. They are usually not afraid of you and are definitely willing to stand up for themselves if need be. You can be agitated by a Perfectionist by their tendency to strive for precision; they are not intending to make an enemy out of you. If you are constantly causing trouble for them, they may try even harder to agitate you in an effort to get you to knock it off.
Why you are loathed: Because you keep asking the Perfectionist why they look so upset!
Revenge style: They Offend You.
16. Can it be the Enhancer - INTJ?
How Revenge is implemented: Enhancers are dangerous because they can go the distance in staging an elaborate plot and actually get away with it. They are not called masterminds for nothing. Extremely good at research and are able to find out lots of things about people. In person, they also have a tendency to retain specific details about what people say and do, long after those people have forgotten. Can keep score and log everything they observe on the hard drive of their mind for later reference. This why dots will be connected that lead to insights long before anyone else would notice. Others never know if they are being plotted against. Enhancers are the goddesses of wisdom of all the patterns and their plan will not fail. Mercy is not in the vocabulary and they never forget when wronged.
As your enemy: The Enhancer will be more subtle than a Promoter. If they have reached a point of feeling like you are completely against them, they will find a strategic and logical way to attack you and will do so very well. Enhancers are intelligent enough to plan a much more effective way of coming against you than you ever bargained for.
Why you are loathed: Because the Enhancer has classified you as an idiot!
Revenge style: They Plot Against You.
