Situation - You know your Disc pattern so this your experience.
When you know your Disc pattern
is useful to see what you experience when challenged whether from the outside or the inside.
If you are applying this to someone other than yourself then you will need to pick their
behaviour pattern first, using the methods contained in this site.
This section is for the Elevanto cohort who already know their own pattern. Some of the descriptions may cause a bit of angst!
You will most likely need assistance if you are here by accident :-) This might tell you what but it will not tell you how. Contact us for an obligation free quote.
Here are all sixteen patterns.
You will be here if you have already worked out your behaviour pattern.
1. Can it be the Director - ESTJ?
E. Hunter’s Moniker™: The incontinent autocrat.
When challenged, the Director finds that they are without a group to lead. They have run into a hole of poorly structured, inefficient and abstract nonsense. Even though they have followed every rule of practicality, the midlife crisis was, in fact, inevitable. Buying a Rolls Royce does not fix the hollow hole in their heart. This crisis may turn into excessive micromanagement on pointless things or harassing people into the Director's devilish plans. The Director may become obsessed with their body, house, bills – anything to distract from the hole in their heart that would take too much introspection to delve into. Introspection is too slow for them to handle, is lonely and is inefficient.
2. Can it be the Developer - ENTJ?
E. Hunter’s Moniker™: The soulless puppet master.
It is not good when people ignore a Developer's commands for a perfect society. They have everything down to the minute of what needs to be done, but no one gives a damn. Instead, they will go willy nilly and ruin other's perfectionistic dreams. They will try to get people to listen to them , but they will not listen. Instead the Developer is now like a blank wall that may one day fade into nothingness. It bothers the Developer when others will not follow what they consider are sound plans or advice. A world where the Developer cannot move and shake things with vibrant extroversion is not a world to be liked or enjoyed. A solitary retreat does not work for the Developer like others. They need lots of people, conquests and charisma flowing through their veins. A world without order is not one enjoyed or understood. The Developer will force order into the world and make it happen.
3. Can it be the Results - ESTP?
E. Hunter’s Moniker™: The burned out pornstar.
Think Fight Club. The world does not have the sprawling war you think would define the Results. Instead it is wall to wall consumerism, but all they really want to feel is a kick to the face, the adrenaline and the thrill. They get bored with everything. everything is boring, mundane and weak. They will trade everything in on a dime for drugs or cheap thrills. They may suddenly abandon all their connections to find that sensual thing they know is here on the planet. They can feel everything in the physical plane that other less developed sensing personalities take for granted. They are annoyed with being in a cubicle to make money because it is pointless when compared with skydiving.
4. Can it be the Inspirational - ENTP?
E. Hunter’s Moniker™: The snivelling malcontent.
Without an argument, does the Inspirational exist? They will keep making up stuff to instigate and eventually ruffle someone's feathers... to make themselves feel better. The Inspirational, perhaps more like the Promoter than the Developer, also needs people in order to come across and exchange philosophical ideals. The Inspirational does not understand disconnection with others, poor arguments or tightly wound up scenarios. They need freedom and also freedom to explore thought. If an Inspirational was held hostage and forced into a routine, their colourful world would collapse. They need people to playfully mock and embrace.
5. Can it be the Persuader - ENFJ?
Category: Idealist and often the SJW.
E. Hunter’s Moniker™: The loudmouth propaganist.
The Persuader is an emotional addict and needs others to feed them emotion. Without emotional insanity all around them, the Persuader goes numb and slightly psychotic. An easy fix? Have them watch romantic comedies, soap operas and listen to romantic music. They need to be around people, but they also get overwhelmed by people. They are the shy-extrovert at times. If they have a sudden break up, they will spiral into madness. This pattern does not do well to be single at all. They may sift through a number of suitors to balance out this aspect in their psyche. The Persuader can be a wonderful person, who can sometimes please the crowd too much and instead not know how to please themselves. They are in constant search to make others happy. When they can focus in on the self and know other goals outside people, which is near impossible, they will be more at peace. But they should not sacrifice their extroversion to mimic the Investigator. The Investigator has a lot different value system since they have a preference for introverted-intuition. The Persuader has a preference for extroverted-feeling. A place without expression is the Persuader's worst nightmare.
6. Can it be the Appraiser - ESFJ
E. Hunter’s Moniker™: The intolerable B-Lister.
This is the Persuader counterpart and the Practitioner counterpart - they need to embellish in large emotional, arguments and also nurture the hell out of everyone they see. They are the queen mother of us all. Without emotional intensity, romance and connectivity the Appraiser might drop you. If you disagree and go against an Appraiser they will drop you. They can be harsh people sometimes. But they have goals, emotional goals together with lists, games and arguments. What the hell is a philosophical discussion and why am I here? But the real deep unearthed sadness happens when someone leaves them. This feels like a big slap of failure. It is wise for others to value their Appraiser and not abandon them.
7. Can it be the Promoter - ENFP?
Category: Idealist and often the SJW.
E. Hunter’s Moniker™: The whinging primadonna.
The Promoter sees everything from the corner of the universe until it finally barrels down into their body. The Promoter forgets their body. What is the point of a body in the middle of the universe? The body is quite counterintuitive to the Promoter who just wants to move through ideas. They can find the highest ethical reason hanging off a planet in a distant solar system but they may have difficulty explaining it, especially when it comes as the point of an argument. They wish they could explain it better, but they will just keep repeating the same thing, ad infinitum, as if to reassure themselves of their own spiraling craziness. The Promoter is depressed that their body cannot keep up and sometimes they neglect to feed it, sleep it or take it out for a walk. The Promoter can get confused by very rigid relations and may find themselves lost when someone is trying to tie them down. The Promoter has to allow themselves to settle down, nothing else can stop them. They do not do well in a hermit mode. The Promoter needs to be around others to champion them. Without that extroversion, depression is an impulse away.
8. Can it be the Counselor - ESFP
E. Hunter’s Moniker™: The bland rockstar.
The Counselor is in constant need of adrenaline. Without sparkling insanity, clubs, mountain climbing, escapades, centre of attention and affairs this pattern does not really get what exists outside of it. Trying to force a Counselor into a philosophical discussion without lots of sparkles will end in them being very bored or pontificating some strange psychological ideas that are more sensual than practical, or even intelligent. Everything is sensual to the Counselor. They see the underlying sex in just about everything. Tell this person not to have sex for a year and they will be very confused about themselves and others.
9. Can it be the Specialist - ISFP
E. Hunter’s Moniker™: The oblivious narcissist.
The Specialist is always existential. Always. Have you seen their art? They are existential. They constantly are rearranging thought and creation to get at a greater whole. They step back and look at things to see the poetry in everyday things. They can honestly overwhelm themselves by how much poetry they see in everything.
10. Can it be the Investigator - INFJ?
Category: Idealist and often the SJW.
E. Hunter’s Moniker™: The delicate egomaniac.
The Investigator believes in things through the abstract, not in what you can actually reach out and touch. They have great battles in the depths of their introspective self. They may flutter around to less traditional things in the pursuit of God, magic or the supernatural. They need to test the limits of a metaphor, not the strength of a wall holding the pictures. They have great concerns about what is to be discovered and has not been found by language yet. They are trying to figure out what is hidden and out there. They may delve through conspiracy theories to see what crazy ideas are out there to come out holding onto a few concepts here and there. The Investigator is an analytical creature by nature that asks nihilistic questions while at the same time finding idealism. Honestly, they may be the epitome of existentialism.
11. Can it be the Agent - INFP?
Category: Idealist and often the SJW.
E. Hunter’s Moniker™: The hapless space cadet.
This dreamer is overcome by emotion. They do not correlate why they have to make decisions that cause them to give up on other decisions. Instead they get lost in a whirlwind of half baked ideas: – Surfing costumes for penguins, Llama farming, Solar night lighting with no batteries and pop up art stores. The Agent is disillusioned by the way people aggressively take on life and how their sometimes passive and aloof approach is not working to solve practical things they want. They zig-zag back and forth between wanting to please everyone and having no clue what others think about them and even spending days, weeks or months locked in their bedrooms depressed on flickers of emotion. They have extreme tunnel vision for love that they can have difficulty abandoning because they believe love is in that tunnel. The Agent does not do well to be forced into highly decisive situations, places where they have to compromise the emotions of others or be focussed on theory alone.
12. Can it be the Achiever - ISTP?
E. Hunter’s Moniker™: The vacuous brooder.
The Achiever is the mechanic who needs something to tinker with. Without a process to unmask, the Achiever becomes self indulgent, somewhat a menace to others and destructive. This could lead to random divorces, moving out, chasing after dreams -- or mulling in the dark pointlessly. Without a cog in the machine, the Achiever sees nothing. They need something to work on with their hands.
13. Can it be the Practitioner - ISFJ?
E. Hunter’s Moniker™: The self-serving saint.
Without nurturing those around them, the Practitioner feels no purpose. This could lead to them inventing ways of serving you or even harming you to serve you. The Practitioner is the ultimate martyr. Without lots to do around the house, making stuff in the kitchen and helping out children they really become quite sad. Empty nest syndrome is a terrible thing for this pattern; when all the kids grow up and leave home they might need counselling. It can really baffle the Practitioner who feels the need to nurture and protect. They need a strong partner to support them through this rather than leave them in the dust.
14. Can it be the Objective Thinker - ISTJ?
E. Hunter’s Moniker™: The ‘by the book’ or ‘r-sole’ boss.
The OT needs facts, facts, facts and accounting. They are in no man's land when it comes to creativity. If one takes out all the normal goals of getting married by a certain age, having a certain career and retirement -- you will destroy an otherwise healthy OT. The OT needs all that normal junk -- questioning them gives them an adrenaline rush of social anxiety. Do not force them outside of their world of normalcy. They need tradition, they need a sound work ethic and they need routine. Do not shove them into a world of too much dalliance.
15. Can it be the Perfectionist - INTP?
E. Hunter’s Moniker™: The inept academic.
Force a Perfectionist down into a meeting and make them hear about all the mundane things of life. Repeat this 17 times in one day. Suddenly you will see them with a dark, frothy look on their face. Yes, frothy. Because that totally makes sense. The collapse into crankiness will let you know that they are bending and drifting into existential madness. They may create something fantastic in order to counterbalance all the stupidity around them. The Perfectionist is considered the most intelligent of all the patterns. This can come with great burden in feeling great disconnection with others, a disregard for the normal and for tradition and a constant curiosity that can (and will) get them into trouble. The Perfectionist, like the Enhancer, can corner themselves. But the Perfectionist also has the capacity to magically get itself out of mayhem, only to introduce themselves to more problems. They may address the universe with precise intelligence, but often sacrifices connections... connections respected and loved but who are displaced.
16. Can it be the Enhancer - INTJ?
E. Hunter’s Moniker™: The smug rabblerouser.
The mental machine that is the Enhancer can often baffle people in a similar way that the Investigator does, except the Enhancer will have the same misgivings with a touch of emotional oddity. The Enhancer's existential crisis comes from the nihilism of conflicting paradoxical ideas to solve world problems. The Enhancer resolves that the world will eventually fall into the pit of the apocalypse. They have already imagined everything vanishing a million times. Sometimes the Enhancer has issues with some of the smaller social interactions between now and the end of the world. They may be highly, if not entirely, confused by dating. They like someone, keep it to themselves and have difficulty often expressing it. Many Enhancers really, really want a relationship. They love their alone time, but they would like to bounce their ideas off someone. They feel existential voids about love, peace and whether many of the things we praise actually matter. Where the Investigator sees things through the lens of spirituality, the Enhancer can make that lens without having to express it through God or spirituality. They can be more scientifically sound. They sometimes copy and paste that approach to too many things and corner themselves.
