Observing just how unhappy (miserable) or happy someone is can make it easy for you to pick their pattern

Disc - Les Miserables™

We start with a quotation from
Richard Depue, Professor of Human Development in the College of Human Ecology at Cornell University who says: “Rewards like food, sex and social interactions as well as more abstract goals such as money or getting a degree trigger the release of dopamine in the brain, producing positive emotions and feelings of desire that motivate us to work toward obtaining those goals. In extroverts, this dopamine response to rewards is more robust so they experience more frequent activation of strong positive emotions”.
So essentially extroverts will tend to be happier than introverts. That is Patterns 1-8 are more likely to be happier than Patterns 9 to 16.

Question: Who do think is the most miserable? - 'Write' your answer here!


Elevanto follows the advice of the legendary US investor, Warren Buffett: "Hang out with people better than you, and you cannot help but improve.
If you hang around with people who behave worse than you, pretty soon you’ll start being pulled in that direction."

So, basically, everyone should door slam the lower rankees from their world!

10. Can it be the Investigator - INFJ?

The Investigator is the Greyhound

Adolf Hitler

Rank - 1 is happiest; 16 is least: 14/16.

Elizabeth Hunter™'s opinion: I agree. But a bit harsh!

Research says ranked highest in being dissatisfied with their marriages, intimate relationships, stress associated with work and school. The Investigator absorbs the emotions of others around us, so being around upset people makes them upset. They are also constantly used as therapists and people tend to overlook their kindness.

Give Up Tendency™: Extremely likely to give up on their job, extremely unlikely to give up on their goals.

Example: When finally opening up to someone saying how much they cannot take people and then find that they are left making the surprised face.


11. Can it be the Agent - INFP?

The Agent is the Tibetan Terrier

John Lennon

Rank - 1 is happiest; 16 is least: 16/16.

Elizabeth Hunter™'s opinion: I agree. Voluntarily miserable at all times. "I do not want to complain, but..." actually they do just that. "Not happy......" Their glass is always half empty! Door slam them by following Warren Buffet's advice. A great utterance from an Agent was heard recently: "All my ice cubes are wet".
An even better resource is the theory "7 ways to maximise misery". The cohort love this when they are studying the Agent: Click here.
In real life, I have no Agents in my inner circle and that will remain.

Research says the Agent is also ranked lowest for life-satisfaction and ranked second highest in dissatisfaction with their marriages and intimate relationships. It is also read that the Agent is the most liable to have depression. This is because they live on the line of wanting to live in a fantasy world where their ideals come true, to living in the real world where what they want to happen never comes true. They have a "habit", for want of a better word, of feeling incredibly lonely and down. Despite being introverts, they crave human interaction. They are also pretty misunderstood because they live in an environment of suspension of facts in La La Land. This is very off putting to many other patterns.

A cynical commentary: The fact of the matter is the Agent is strange, undesirable, cynical and eccentric. There is no endearing quality, otherwise they would not complain of constant loneliness and solitude. If the Agent is not liked, the Agent is undesirable. Undesirable = not desired.

Give Up Tendency™: Likely to give up on their goals, unlikely to give up on their job.

Example: Whinging about how lonely they are and then refusing to attend any social events.


12. Can it be the Achiever - ISTP?

The Achiever is the Bassett Hound

Clint Eastwood

Rank - 1 is happiest; 16 is least: 11/16.

Give Up Tendency™: Likely to give up on their job, unlikely to give up on their goals.

Example: These people are 30% of the ones smoking while promoting health care.

The Practitioner is the Alaskan Malamute

Mother Teresa

Rank - 1 is happiest; 16 is least: 12/16.

Elizabeth Hunter™'s opinion: I agree. Have problems if any conflict! They are okay in small doses.

Give Up Tendency™: Extremely likely to give up on their goals, extremely unlikely to give up on their job.

Example: They feel guilty for making someone else feel guilty.



14. Can it be the Objective Thinker - ISTJ?

The Objective Thinker is the Bernese Mountain Dog

Warren Buffett

Rank - 1 is happiest; 16 is least: 9/16.

Give Up Tendency™: Extremely likely to give up on their goals, extremely unlikely to give up on their job.

Example: Not wanting to be a ‘deviant’ but being a ‘deviant’ when literally no one cares about traditions anymore.



15. Can it be the Perfectionist - INTP?

The Perfectionist is the Papillon

Albert Einstein

Rank - 1 is happiest; 16 is least: 15/16.

Elizabeth Hunter™'s opinion: I agree. Locked away in academia!

Research says over-represented among males with post-traumatic stress disorder. Also ranked 15th in using both cognitive and social coping resources to deal with stress.

Give Up Tendency™: Likely to give up on their goals, unlikely to give up on their job.

16. Can it be the Enhancer - INTJ?

Mark Zuckerberg
