I am helping my Developer boss to micromanage the situation at work. I am focussing on checking that all the safety rules are in place in the business to avoid infections. Yes, even how others are washing their hands. Especially noting if they are washing between their fingers.

I am:

"2IC, to the Developer, of the doomsday shelter."

E. Hunter Articulation™:

Contracts the illness by refusing to work from home, afraid of missing a promotion opportunity but only at work for fun. Ensuring that their kids and their spouse and everyone they know is staying in and obeying the self isolation orders.

What they want to hear to be encouraged over the COVID-19 situation:

They want to hear that everything will be alright at the end, that they understood this and that it is just another level of challenge they need to overcome.

I am pondering about the long term effect of Covid-19. Especially concerning the economic aspect of my businesses.

I am:

"Establishing the doomsday shelter and delegating to a bureaucracy should they be the only ones left alive."

E. Hunter Articulation™:

Contracts the illness by refusing to work from home, afraid of missing a promotion opportunity. Probably very frustrated that this virus has been allowed to get out of hand like this and they are likely sharing their best knowledge with everyone they know about how it happened and what needs to be done to stop it.

Moderate openness, moderate conscientiousness, high extroversion, low agreeableness.

I am:

"Establishing a toilet paper company and stand to makes millions."

E. Hunter Articulation™:

Contracts the illness by breaking quarantine to maintain lifting schedule at the local YMCA. May have one of the hardest times staying at home. The lack of both freedom and social interaction will be difficult. Likely to be on social media to help deal with it.

What they want to hear to be encouraged over the COVID-19 situation:

I produce memes about Covid-19 that circulate around as fast as the itself, as well as opening up long debates on Reddit.

No surprises here.

High openness, low conscientiousness, moderate-high extroversion, low agreeableness.

I am:

"Of the view that I am low risk, so I do not care."

E. Hunter Articulation™:

The last of the extroverts to catch COVID-19, contracts the illness during brief removal of mask in order to be heard clearly in a heated argument with the 7-11 clerk. Likely feeling very pent-up. May be busy investigating the origin of the virus and the cure for it and debating this with everyone with whom they are able to interact.

E Hunter™ comment:

Interfering, as per usual.

Neuroticism Level™: LOW

Moderate openness, high conscientiousness, high extroversion, high agreeableness.

I am:

"Continually clashing with the Developer about leadership and decisions."

E. Hunter Articulation™:

Wears a mask when friends become sick but, nevertheless, still insists upon trying to provide close-proximity moral support. Likely sorely missing social interactions. With those to whom they can connect, they will be likely to assertively tell them to stay in. They may reassure them based on the latest findings about the virus which may or may not be correct.

What they want to hear to be encouraged over the COVID-19 situation:

They want a scene to shine and express themselves and their greatest encouragement comes from the admiration they feel. Be sincere as they will know if you fake it.

Go to their pattern

I was absolutely freaked out by the news and started at first to overthink. Then I decided to join help groups to assist sick people.

Seems about right.

Neuroticism Level™: LOW

Low-moderate openness, high conscientiousness, high extroversion, high agreeableness.

I am:

"Formerly the most popular kid in the 80’s, now I am making a comeback."

E. Hunter Articulation™:

Always partying, "self-isolation will mess with my shopping schedule", but washes hands more often than the Counselor. Initial impulse will be to help others. They are cooking meals and placing them on sick and elderly people’s porches. They are on their phones checking on people.

I completely ignore the advice of social distancing and avoiding crowds. I continue to party like there is no tomorrow.

The Spontaneous Covid Ninteener™.

E Hunter™ comment:

Inconsiderate. Will be the cause of more draconian restrictions of the socialist governments.

Neuroticism Level™: MODERATE

Moderate openness, moderate conscientiousness, high extroversion, high agreeableness.

I am:

"Annoyed that I have to cancel my comedy shows now."

E. Hunter Articulation™:

Always partying, "self-isolation will mess with my shopping schedule". As will the Results, has an extremely difficult time without social interaction. Will make the best of things by making Youtube videos of themselves and their family performing Coronavirus songs.

Moderate openness, moderate conscientiousness, low extroversion, high agreeableness.

I am:

"Going to China anyway."

E. Hunter Articulation™:

Does not pay attention to safety guidelines, gets sick when their contagious Promoter friend comes around. Likely model peace and contentment during a time when others are tied due to isolation.

What they want to hear to be encouraged over the COVID-19 situation:

They need assurance even if things gets worse, you will still be together through it. Assure them as often as you can and do not let them feel lonely. Remind them often how much you value and rely on their strength.

Go to their pattern

I am saddened by the news and start to counsel people around me and share motivational messages.

Most likely self isolate when they have not come back from overseas.

E. Hunter Articulation™:

Contracts illness by refusing to work from home, afraid of missing promotion opportunity but only at work for fun.

"not concerned at all that there is a lockdown. I stay at home all day anyway."

E. Hunter Articulation™:

Self-isolates but breaks the isolation with a desperate trip to the local bookstore three weeks in. Pre-occupied with knowing that many are suffering greatly with this. Their thoughts are on those in Italy that were too old to be treated and have been left alone to die or gasp for breath. Their thoughts are on the children who are victims of and / or who are witnessing domestic abuse because of the strain of confinement. They think of the hurting people whose loved-ones have been taken by the virus. They try to distract themselves but, ultimately, feel a sense of responsibility to help the hurting. They may experience depression and anxiety from the weight of it all.

What they want to hear to be encouraged over the COVID-19 situation:

I am experiencing emotional discomfort after hearing the news and I am trying to crack up some jokes and create some memes to feel more positive and lighten up the atmosphere a bit.

A bit of a nuisance, as usual.

Neuroticism Level™: HIGH

High openness, low conscientiousness, low extroversion, high agreeableness.

I am:

"Helping console others amidst the chaos around them."

E. Hunter Articulation™:

Either is not paying attention to the safety guidelines and contracts the illness from the door handle of a local café or will not let the repair man in to fix the TV antenna as ess, aitch, one, tee scared of contracting the illness. Busy dreaming about the potential the virus has for human good. It is bringing humanity together in beautiful ways, teaching people to behave unselfishly, thinking of the well-being of others before their own. They see beauty, whereas others see only pain.

What they want to hear to be encouraged over the COVID-19 situation:

They need assurance even if things gets worse, you will still be together through it. Assure them as often as you can and do not let them feel lonely. Remind them often how much you value and rely on their strength.

After I read that the virus dies at direct contact with air at 26/27 °C, I set my home air conditioner to that temperature and made sure to stay home as much as possible.

The (hot) self isolator.

Neuroticism Level™: MODERATE-LOW

I am:

"Saying that it is all a government lie."

E. Hunter Articulation™:

Unaware of the viral outbreak, contracts the illness upon return from a month-long hiking trip. Might stay busy while quarantined by making face masks themselves with the materials they have at home. Likely to have the Australian app and promote its use.

The self isolator.

Neuroticism Level™: MODERATE

Low-moderate openness, high conscientiousness, moderate extroversion, high agreeableness.

I am:

"Of the view that no disease can wipe out the most common behaviour pattern which contains my good self."

E. Hunter Articulation™:

Follows the safety guidelines but contracts the the illness from the Persuader spouse. Already often busy caring for the hurting, elderly, sick etc. While being careful to keep quarantine, they are making and delivering meals, toilet paper, tissues, soap, and hand sanitizer from their personal stockpile they had months before the virus was even heard of. Interpreting 1.5m isolation as 100.5m.

What they want to hear to be encouraged over the COVID-19 situation:

They have difficulty verbalizing their feelings, so create an environment where they feel confident to externalize. Take the first step by sharing how you feel and, if you do not hear immediate feedback, give them enough space and time to feel comfortable. Reiterate that it is okay to feel down once in a while.

Go to their pattern

I have already dealt with outbreaks of other viruses in the past. I smirk when I reveal that I still have plenty of masks. I pass a few leftover ones to my close friends.

Perfect. No surprises here.

Low openness, high conscientiousness, low extroversion, low agreeableness.

"Tagging along with the Perfectionist."

E. Hunter Articulation™:

Strictly follows the safety guidelines yet contracts the the illness from the Appraiser spouse. Likely already be on the front lines helping people in some way, as a police officer, firefighter or military personnel. Those who are not will be very protective of their friends and families, ensuring that they obey the quarantine rules.

I theorise about the origin of the outbreak and discuss it with friends and family.

E Hunter™ comment:

As they would. Probably self isolated.

Neuroticism Level™: LOW-MODERATE

High openness, low consciousness, low extroversion, low agreeableness.

I am:

"Buying an obscene amount of toilet paper and I am also beginning to make my own, somehow."

E. Hunter Articulation™:

Self-isolates but inevitably contracts the virus due to poor hygiene. Busy at home developing models of the virus’ potential to do worldwide political and economic damage.

I research and prepare in order to minimise the risk of getting infected as well as making sure to share such information with dear ones.

16. The Enhancer - ENTJ

The Knowledgable Covid Ninteener™.

E Hunter™ comment:

Basically carry on as normal and think that the whole thing is driven my mass hysteria. Some self isolate when there is no need when others stand in long dole and election queues spreading the virus to their newest friends. The voters will get the virus in preference to a fine for not voting.
I would bring in rationing of toilet paper per WWII rationing. For the US, 22.5 sheets per person per day. For the UK, 3 per day and apply that to the colonies as well!

Neuroticism Level™: MODERATE-LOW

Moderate openness, high conscientiousness, low extroversion, low agreeableness.

I am:

"Staying at home, as usual, nothing has changed. I am most likely to be working on some odd project."

E. Hunter Articulation™:

Self-isolates in their well-stocked apocalypse bunker and never contracts the illness. Busy working on a cure and analyzing the genetics of the virus. Refuses to download the app promoted by the People's Republic of Australia. They do not trust the Chief Medical Officer or the Government or Amazon, who are hosting the app, under any circumstances whatsoever.
