Situation - You are observing when someone is involved with a PARTY or what they might be up to at 3am (with tongue in cheek) - A little shindig™
When someone is involved with partying
can make it easy for you to pick their pattern
Observing people arranging and participating in a party is one of Elizabeth Hunter™'s favourite pastimes. I am not the party animal as you will see below when I describe what the Enhancer does at a party. If you know how I loathe functions such as parents cocktail parties, you will laugh. However, it's when folk let their guard that makes a situation of pattern picking heaven prior to Titanium Imposition™.
You will most likely need assistance :-) This might tell you what but it will not tell you how. Contact us for an obligation free quote.
Here are all sixteen patterns - all at the little shindig™. You will be here, too!

The Developer was involved very little in the actual planning or festivities. The Developer loathes the planning and details, but was in attendance at the event dressed in Batcapes and equipped with utility belts. Just like someone else.
At the party, immediately hates small talk and meaningless banter so connects an earpiece to their Bluetooth to discuss work projects, to-do lists and the meaning of life with their closer friends. Confuses a lot of people in the process who think the Developer is talking to them when thay are mentally disrobing them. Threatened to call the party off if the noise situation was not brought into control. The Agent spoke up and all was forgotten. Went back to party mode.

When the party got going, somehow manages to win beer pong and a game of Risk while intoxicated. Rescues a cat stuck in a tree in an attempt to win the Practitioner over.

The DJ was hired and the Karaoke was kicked off and the Appraiser even got everyone on the dance floor, especially the Agent! And yes, as you already guessed, the Appraiser also went on to emcee the event – oblivious to what friends were currently doing.

The Counselor came in ready to mingle, barely able to wait for the big night. In conjunction with the Agent, figured out what they wanted to do, who they wanted to invite and what they should eat. The Counselor did not really care about the details. That was left up to the Appraiser.
At the party, the Counslor decided to dress as “Cinderella Being Abducted by Aliens” and started inviting people outside of the party's direct circle. Invited were the partner's new boss, the lady at the pawnshop and that cute new guy who they had met at a concert the previous week. Suspected to be the spiker of the punch but was not caught, maybe in conjunction with the Appraiser, because the Developer, the Agent, the Specialist, the Perfectionist and the OT were all too worried – each in their own way – that something could go wrong!

Is conducting the opening night at their home based strip club.

9. Can it be the Specialist - ISFP
The Specialist landed a lot of the work:
The Specialist waited for the party plan to be finalised by waiting for an opportunity to place a last-minute bid on a more traditional costume before settling on attending as a Doctor. As the Appraiser's ideas grew, so did the Specialist's to-do list.
At the party, as the arty type, paints a portrait of the Agent and the puppy while jamming to favorite tunes on the headphones. Looks for anyone unique and quirky and takes stunning Instagram-worthy photos of them on the phone. Is admired by everyone, but hardly notices.

11. Can it be the Agent - INFP?
The Agent did the invitations and contacted people:
The Agent invited close friends and co-workers, making phone calls and sending out handwritten invitations with individual messages attached. Kept in regular contact with the Specialist and the Appraiser. As the Appraiser's ideas continued growing, so did the Agent's to-do list.
At the party, remained snuggled up in the corner with whatever furry creature happened to be around, along with a worn-out copy of “Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban”. Feels like a prisoner at the party (but enjoys the furry friend they made). At the behest of the Developer and Agent called the neighbours to placate and apologise to them. Went back to party mode. Thought everyone deserved a little prize so made little baggies for everyone to take home.

Kept in regular contact with The Agent and the Specialist regarding the party plan and, when it came time for them to take over, did all the shopping with the Perfectionist.
The OT was dragged to the party by somebody else and would really rather be at home. Did not like all the noise and the crowd. Spent a great deal of time alphabetizing the host's DVDs and books. Then headed up to the roof to look at the stars and listen to a playlist of their favorite songs. However, the OT noticed how loud the party was getting and this caused the Practitioner to get involved. With that sorted, went back to party mode.

Kept in regular contact with the Agent and the Specialist regarding the party plan and then when it came time for them to take over, did all the shopping with the OT.
At the party, tries to avoid making small talk by taking his Playstation to a private room where the playing of “Elder Scrolls” can take place in peace. Gets an unpleasant surprise when the best friend stumbles in later with his secret crush. When the party became too loud was pressed into service and called the Developer and Agent over to suggest that the neighbours be informed before the police arrived and issued a penalty notice.

The Enhancer does not want to attend:
The Enhancer is the greatest planner but wants nothing to do with functions that need not be attended.
Forced to attend, inwardly berates self for arriving early (a usual circumstance) and makes awkward small talk, which the Enhancer totally detests, with the host (the Results) for a while.
