Conducted and composed by Elizabeth Hunter™ - Last Update 20 June, 2020


1. Can it be the Director - ESTJ?

The Director is the Border Collie

Category: Guardian.

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 Mercedes 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.

E. Hunter’s Inner Emotional Life™. What they really show or do not show:

Prefers not to express them and keeps them hidden from the world.

E. Hunter’s Correct Imposition on this patterns' wishy-washiness™:

You are honing in on weakness. Do this: Protect the Director by telling them what they should do. Detail the implications. Assist with decisions that affect their future and that of those in their care. By doing this, their awareness awakens and their decisions become clear.

E. Hunter’s unmasking of the real truth about the Director:

Sometimes, you do not know best.

You give orders and execute the plans expertly, but you rarely stop to ask for advice. Plus, you do not love unsolicited feedback. But the better you can get at accepting help and considering others’ opinions, the better leader you will become. Although you think you know best most of the time, ignoring others’ thoughts will expose the times when that is simply not the case.

The world is about to end. E. Hunter’s forecast as to what you would do:

You would be the first to show up and assist the Developer. They are the bully in charge and will have their entire clan in tow. They are armed to the teeth and have already survived a couple of battles for necessary food supplies - just as they did in the COVID-19 situation back a few years ago in 2020.

2. Can it be the Developer - ENTJ?

The Developer is the German Shepherd

Category: Thinker.

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.

E. Hunter’s Inner Emotional Life™. What they really show or do not show:

Tends to avoid emotion especially when working. They bury their feelings because they do not fully know how to process or understand them.

E. Hunter’s Correct Imposition on this patterns' wishy-washiness™:

You are honing in on weakness. Do this: Assist the Developer to remember. Encourage them to write of their experiences. Remind them of past decisions and results. Show them their folly in hoping for a different result this time around if doing exactly the same thing. Be unwavering in commitment to them to ensure their progress toward achievement is neither slow nor derailed.

E. Hunter’s unmasking of the real truth about the Developer:

You are not superhuman.

You want to make the world run smoother, have substantial relationships and see growth in your personal life. But you often bite off more than you can chew and prioritize working longer hours over making stronger bonds. You make promises you do not keep and end up disappointing others. Remember that you do not have more than 24 hours in a day and you cannot do everything. You have to be selective about who you invest in and make sure that you are putting forth the necessary time to be solid in your loved ones’ lives.

The world is about to end. E. Hunter’s forecast as to what you would do:

You would broadcast, by way of a 2-way radio, a call to consolidate and survive including directions to the strategically sound, centrally located, rendezvous point under your command and control with the Director assisting you.

3. Can it be the Results - ESTP?

The Results is the Jack Russell Terrier

Category: Artisan.

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.

E. Hunter’s Inner Emotional Life™. What they really show or do not show:

Tends to avoid emotion especially when working. They bury their feelings because they do not fully know how to process or understand them. Usually shows their emotions via acting out by bullying, name-calling, etc. in a similar fashion to the Enhancer.

E. Hunter’s Correct Imposition on this patterns' wishy-washiness™:

You are honing in on weakness. Do this: Strengthen the Results by not by telling them to avoid evil or even the appearance of it, but by being an example. Lend them your morality to help them differentiate between right and wrong. Lead them to the tree of knowledge of good and evil so they may learn discernment for themselves.

E. Hunter’s unmasking of the real truth about the Results:

There are some things you must plan for.

Living in the moment is your MO and you believe you can figure out anything on the fly; the past is the past and the future is fuzzy. You tell yourself this, but deep down know that not planning for your future destinations leaves you vulnerable to never going anywhere at all. Take time to think about your goals and do not be afraid to share them; also share, with emotion, your frustrations and fears better to others who can provide you with honest feedback.

The world is about to end. E. Hunter’s forecast as to what you would do:

You would take it that an opportunity exists for the adventure of a lifetime. You decide to cook some sausages on the barbeque which you have with you. You watch the end from the peak of Mt. Everest.

-
 

4. Can it be the Inspirational - ENTP?

The Inspirational is the Bull Terrier

Category: Thinker.

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.

E. Hunter’s Inner Emotional Life™. What they really show or do not show:

Appear emotionless and rational, but hide fairly deep feelings no one would ever suspect. Especially so for the Inspirational and OT. Throws curved balls all day and are hard to decode as misleads about their ability to feel.

E. Hunter’s Correct Imposition on this patterns' wishy-washiness™:

You are honing in on weakness. Do this: Strengthen the Inspirational by not by telling them to avoid evil or even the appearance of it, but by being an example. Lend them your morality to help them differentiate between right and wrong. Lead them to the tree of knowledge of good and evil so they may learn discernment for themselves.

E. Hunter’s unmasking of the real truth about the Inspirational:

If you never commit long-term, you will never make deep impacts.

Not only are you a great conversationalist and a social butterfly but you also have an array of interests. Choosing one path to commit to, whether it be a relationship or a career, is the hardest struggle you face. But if you do not settle into just a few core decisions, you will never make deep and lasting impacts in relationships or in aa given field. Try drafting some specific plans as your goal this year; you will reach them.

The world is about to end. E. Hunter’s forecast as to what you would do:

You would have noticed the apocalypse days before it began and have already moved away with your loved ones to your pre-planned exodus locale long before all the roads are jammed.

-
 

5. Can it be the Persuader - ENFJ?

The Persuader is the Boxer

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.

E. Hunter’s Inner Emotional Life™. What they really show or do not show:

Shows whatever face will maintain harmony even if they feel like death inside. Hides true feelings the best. Throws curved balls all day and are difficult to decode. Misleads about their feelings.

E. Hunter’s Correct Imposition on this patterns' wishy-washiness™:

You are honing in on weakness. Do this: Assist the Persuader to remember. Encourage them to write of their experiences. Remind them of past decisions and results. Show them their folly in hoping for a different result this time around if doing exactly the same thing. Be unwavering in commitment to them to ensure their progress toward achievement is neither slow nor derailed.

E. Hunter’s unmasking of the real truth about the Persuader:

You cannot read every situation or know every answer.

You are gifted with both the ability to read people’s emotions and you have an innate sense of what is going on in any given situation. And because you are correct so often, you sometimes overanalyze a situation, making yourself feel anxious looking for an answer that might not exist. Accepting the unknown is one of your biggest challenges and learning to live in the gray area will be one of your biggest triumphs.

The world is about to end. E. Hunter’s forecast as to what you would do:

You would be the one to rally any remaining humans and animals to strengthen each other. You would lead their survival cult to a deserted island in the South Pacific, where outlawing war is your first law.

-
 

6. Can it be the Appraiser - ESFJ

The Appraiser is the Great Dane

Category: Guardian.

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.

E. Hunter’s Inner Emotional Life™. What they really show or do not show:

Shows whatever face will maintain harmony even if they feel like death inside. The Appraiser hides their true feelings well.

E. Hunter’s Correct Imposition on this patterns' wishy-washiness™:

You are honing in on weakness. Do this: Protect the Appraiser by telling them what they should do. Detail the implications. Assist with decisions that affect their future and that of those in their care. By doing this, their awareness awakens and their decisions become clear.

E. Hunter’s unmasking of the real truth about the Appraiser:

You cannot hurry love.

Although you just want to love, you skew impatient about the search making dating tough. You are always trying to fit square, triangle and pentagon-shaped pegs into round holes. You are at your best when relaxed, around friends and taking charge of life with activities they enjoy. That is also, ironically, when you will probably meet a promising significant other.

The world is about to end. E. Hunter’s forecast as to what you would do:

You would make the last supper, set the table with fine crystal and serve scrumptious apple pie for dessert. You refuse to eat until everyone else is full. If not an atheist, you lead everyone in prayer. You then give your life to ensure the survival of your family.

-
 

7. Can it be the Promoter - ENFP?

The Promoter is the Golden Retriever

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.

E. Hunter’s Inner Emotional Life™. What they really show or do not show:

Often misrepresent their inner feelings, at least according to traditional expectations. In particular, demonstrates one emotion (or no emotion) when they are feeling something else altogether. Are a bit more transparent than the Agent; are similar to the Counselor.

E. Hunter’s Correct Imposition on this patterns' wishy-washiness™:

You are honing in on weakness. Do this: Help the Promoter reason logically. Teach them to separate facts and data (F&D) from perception, hearsay, opinion and guess (PHOG). Complement their wealth of knowledge with independent verification and walk them through to logical conclusions. In time, their internal repository will not only be informative but also accurate; about bloody time.

E. Hunter’s unmasking of the real truth about the Promoter:

You cannot control people.

As a charming extrovert with an affinity for people who are hurting or misunderstood, you always work to see the best in people and strive to improve your relationships. Occasionally, these good intentions lead to manipulation and order-giving when you do not get an immediate desired reaction. Remember, you cannot control people. You can only state what you see and let them make their own choices. Meddling and manipulation will make you feel guilty in the aftermath.

The world is about to end. E. Hunter’s forecast as to what you would do:

You would be useless. You would spend your remaining time in a group cry with everyone you know. You promise that they will all be together again. Fact free.

-
 

8. Can it be the Counselor - ESFP

The Counselor is the Poodle

Category: Artisan.

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.

E. Hunter’s Inner Emotional Life™. What they really show or do not show:

Often misrepresent their inner feelings, at least according to traditional expectations. In particular, demonstrates one emotion (or no emotion) when they are feeling something else altogether. Are a bit more transparent than the Agent; are similar to the Promoter.

E. Hunter’s Correct Imposition on this patterns' wishy-washiness™:

You are honing in on weakness. Do this: Help the Counselor reason logically. Teach them to separate facts and data (F&D) from perception, hearsay, opinion and guess (PHOG). Complement their wealth of knowledge with independent verification and walk them through to logical conclusions. In time, their internal repository will not only be informative but also accurate, at last.

E. Hunter’s unmasking of the real truth about the Counselor:

Some mistakes cannot be undone.

You struggle with an impulsive streak, even though you are frequently able to charm your way out of mistakes. But your impulsiveness is not always innocent fun; you bite back hard sometimes after getting hurt, causing more pain than you know how to rectify. This is where humbling yourself and admitting wrongdoing can go a long way. Apologizing is not one of your natural gifts, so practice and self-awareness are key.

The world is about to end. E. Hunter’s forecast as to what you would do:

You would be disseminate humour if there was anyone left to appreciate it. You hear about the Achiever’s celebration and miraculously make it there through all the hurricanes and floods.

-
 

9. Can it be the Specialist - ISFP

The Specialist is the Saint Bernard

Category: Artisan.

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.

E. Hunter’s Inner Emotional Life™. What they really show or do not show:

Is easy to read as being emotional while it is happening and can be figured out by context (e.g., by identifying what triggered the emotional response to decipher how they feel).

E. Hunter’s Correct Imposition on this patterns' wishy-washiness™:

You are honing in on weakness. Do this: Show the Specialist the warning signs. Teach them to identify the tactics of manipulators. Share with them shrewd insight into character and behaviour to protect them from those who would cause personal and financial ruin. Doing so helps them to build an armor of self-protection, thus safeguarding the inspiration of their creation.

E. Hunter’s unmasking of the real truth about the Specialist:

Vulnerability is a requirement for functioning relationships.

You have a huge heart but reserve emotion for your creative products, be it art, writing or other hobbies. Honest, clear vulnerability such as telling your partner, “I love you” or revealing something that has hurt you in the past can often feel crippling. However it is actually a superpower and the key to becoming closer to those you love. The right people will embrace your story; practicing trust can be terrifying and freeing, all at the same time.

The world is about to end. E. Hunter’s forecast as to what you would do:

You would be useless. You would ponder how all this could have happened although you already know how.

-
 

10. Can it be the Investigator - INFJ?

The Investigator is the Greyhound

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.

E. Hunter’s Inner Emotional Life™. What they really show or do not show:

Shows whatever face will maintain harmony even if they feel like death inside. Shows more than the Persuader but usually hide their feelings well.

E. Hunter’s Correct Imposition on this patterns' wishy-washiness™:

You are honing in on weakness. Do this: Help the Investigator verify before they conclude. Expose for what are the lies, the misdirection and the manipulations that they may believe. This addresses the hazy blur between facts and beliefs. Protect them in this way to ensure the purity of their reasoning and self-sacrifice can continue without risk of exploitation.

E. Hunter’s unmasking of the real truth about the Investigator:

Even the best-laid plans are sometimes thwarted.

You love making plans and you are brilliant at it. But plans are so easily thwarted when the variables are constantly in flux. Learning to, say, take spontaneous adventures that sound more fun that your original ideas or move for an unexpected job opportunity is the best way to supplement your long-term goals. Sometimes shifting your sails can actually get you to a better destination, faster.

The world is about to end. E. Hunter’s forecast as to what you would do:

You would be useless. You would weep for humanity, for the animals and for the Earth.

-
 

11. Can it be the Agent - INFP?

The Agent is the Tibetan Terrier

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.

E. Hunter’s Inner Emotional Life™. What they really show or do not show:

Often misrepresent their inner feelings, at least according to traditional expectations. In particular, demonstrates one emotion (or no emotion) when they are feeling something else altogether. The Agent does this the most. Throws curved balls all day and are hard to decode as misleads about their feelings.

E. Hunter’s Correct Imposition on this patterns' wishy-washiness™:

You are honing in on weakness. Do this: Interrupt the Agent's dream. Intervene with discomfort, the most effective tool in motivating them to action. Not only does their quality of life and happiness depend upon it, but so also does the world’s hope in their ideals. In strength, they show what is possible for us all but they must have hit the reality switch with a sledgehammer.

E. Hunter’s unmasking of the real truth about the Agent:

Not everything is an attack.

Highly sensitive to criticism about how you live your life, you sometimes seem quirky or different to others. You would not change your value system for anyone, but a lifetime of feeling misunderstood can take its toll, leading you to see judgment where it may not exist. Remember, your friends know and love you and not every comment will be delivered with finesse. Let some minor things go. Life is easier that way.

The world is about to end. E. Hunter’s forecast as to what you would do:

You would snap to life and try one last time to save everyone. Your brain is spinning constantly, as per usual, trying to figure out solutions of how to rescue humanity.

-
 

12. Can it be the Achiever - ISTP?

The Achiever is the Bassett Hound

Category: Artisan.

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.

E. Hunter’s Inner Emotional Life™. What they really show or do not show:

May come across as unsympathetic or even overly blunt without meaning to do so. Tends to keep their own feelings private, often hiding them from even those closest to them.

E. Hunter’s Correct Imposition on this patterns' wishy-washiness™:

You are honing in on weakness. Do this: Show the Achiever the warning signs. Teach them to identify the tactics of manipulators. Share with them shrewd insight into character and behaviour to protect them from those who would cause personal and financial ruin. Doing so helps them to build an armor of self-protection, thus safeguarding the inspiration of their creation.

E. Hunter’s unmasking of the real truth about the Achiever:

People will not always tell you what’s up.

All you want is the truth, but the world is not as straightforward as you are. Sometimes people are dodgy or have secret malicious intent but, at other times, they just cannot find the right words or know how to express what they mean. Do not always assume what you see is what you get. Ask questions when behaviour and words do not match.

The world is about to end. E. Hunter’s forecast as to what you would do:

You would calm the nerves of your loved ones, cheer everyone up and then start the going away celebration of the millenia which will be attended eventually by the Counselor.

-
 

13. Can it be the Practitioner - ISFJ?

The Practitioner is the Alaskan Malamute

Category: Guardian.

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.

E. Hunter’s Inner Emotional Life™. What they really show or do not show:

Shows whatever face will maintain harmony even if they feel like death inside. Show more than the Persuader, but usually hides their feelings well.

E. Hunter’s Correct Imposition on this patterns' wishy-washiness™:

You are honing in on weakness. Do this: Help the Practitioner verify before they conclude. Expose for what are the lies, the misdirection and the manipulations that they may believe. This addresses the hazy blur between facts and beliefs. Protect them in this way to ensure the purity of their reasoning and self-sacrifice can continue without risk of exploitation.

E. Hunter’s unmasking of the real truth about the Practitioner:

Perfect behavior does not mean a perfect relationship.

You work hard to follow the rules and keep others happy. If only that were all it took to have great relationships with friends, family and partners. Sometimes, though, you value peace too much and honesty too little. Speaking up and sharing your innermost beliefs can feel uncomfortable, but it is the only way people can learn who you really are, after all.

The world is about to end. E. Hunter’s forecast as to what you would do:

You would not lead. You would spend your last moments embracing and bringing positivity to all those you loved.

-
 

14. Can it be the Objective Thinker - ISTJ?

The Objective Thinker is the Bernese Mountain Dog

Category: Guardian.

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.

E. Hunter’s Inner Emotional Life™. What they really show or do not show:

Appear emotionless and rational, but hide fairly deep feelings no one would ever suspect. Especially so for the Inspirational and OT. Throws curved balls all day and are hard to decode as misleads about their ability to feel.

E. Hunter’s Correct Imposition on this patterns' wishy-washiness™:

You are honing in on weakness. Do this: Instruct the Enhancer in ways to interact effectively with others. Help them understand that public standards for behaviou, though not officially enumerated in a book of law, do in fact exist and require adherence to avoid undesired consequences. For them, an understanding and appreciation for etiquette leads to a mastery of effective human interaction.

E. Hunter’s unmasking of the real truth about the Objective Thinker:

Responsibility only takes you so far.

You are the most responsible kid in every classroom, the most diligent employee in every office and the strongest pillar in every family. However, too much self-sacrifice can force you to repress real dreams and desires you have for yourself which will ultimately leave you a little bit empty. Focus on at least one major goal at any given time; you deserve it.

The world is about to end. E. Hunter’s forecast as to what you would do:

You would be the Project Manager of your own plan. You would deploy their iron shutters, bolts the doors and review your thoroughly vetted step by step survival plan. You would make a timeline for each step based on projected conditions.

-
 

15. Can it be the Perfectionist - INTP?

The Perfectionist is the Papillon

Category: Thinker.

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. Those connections who are respected and loved but who are displaced.

E. Hunter’s Inner Emotional Life™. What they really show or do not show:

Private by nature, they tend to keep their emotions to themselves, sometimes hiding them from even those closest to them.

E. Hunter’s Correct Imposition on this patterns' wishy-washiness™:

You are honing in on weakness. Do this: Interrupt the Perfectionist's dream. Intervene with discomfort, the most effective tool in motivating them to action. Not only does their quality of life and happiness depend upon it, but so also does the world’s hope in their ideals. In strength, they show what is possible for us all but they must have hit the reality switch with a sledgehammer.

E. Hunter’s unmasking of the real truth about the Perfectionist:

People do make emotional decisions.

You thrive on logical decision-making and have trouble understanding why anyone would take another approach. You take particular issue with those who put the feelings of others ahead of the end goal and sometimes you get bothered if you are slowing down to accommodate emotional decisions. But relationships and friendships are built on them and acknowledging emotional impact instead of fighting them will ultimately get you where you want to go; and more quickly.

The world is about to end. E. Hunter’s forecast as to what you would do:

You would be be in the know in that the proliferation of life is the most powerful force in the universe, that the human race will evolve again; eventually. You would leave behind lessons for your decendants.

16. Can it be the Enhancer - INTJ?

The Enhancer is the Afghan Hound

Category: Thinker.

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.

E. Hunter’s Inner Emotional Life™. What they really show or do not show:

Appears emotionless and rational, but hide fairly deep feelings no one would ever suspect. Usually, along with the Results, shows their emotions via acting out by bullying, name-calling, etc.

The Enhancer does not fake emotions, which can be intense. They do not show their emotions because they are very private people. They do not want others to know what they are feeling. They make fake an interest in trivial matters or small talk as some people think that a cat peeing in the pot plant would be of interest to someone else.

The Enhancer is focussed on reality, speaking only what is necessary to be said, figuring out the essence of any task and doing it in the shortest and best possible way. Do not put one on a team; put one in charge of one. They are natural leaders but often do not aspire to leadership. Therefore, they have no need to butter up people in order to be liked. They simply want to get the job done and not bring emotions into their job. Do not expect them to be terribly interested about your new dog or some issue with the mother-in-law. They do not feel that they have to reveal their emotions to those who are not very close to them. Even then, the way they reveal them tends to be understated.

E. Hunter’s Correct Imposition on this patterns' wishy-washiness™:

You are honing in on weakness. Do this: Instruct the Enhancer in ways to interact effectively with others. Help them understand that public standards for behaviou, though not officially enumerated in a book of law, do in fact exist and require adherence to avoid undesired consequences. For them, an understanding and appreciation for etiquette leads to a mastery of effective human interaction.

E. Hunter’s unmasking of the real truth about the Enhancer:

The world is full of unpredictable outcomes.

Believing you know the likely outcome of almost any event, and making decisions accordingly, puts you at risk for missing out on some amazing chance occurrences, even if the odds are low. Overthinking can stop you from building great relationships (that often fail) or taking a new job (in an industry that is uncertain) even if you really want to give it a try. Do not get in your own way. Likely outcomes rely on others; your personal outcome in any given situation relies mostly on you.

The world is about to end. E. Hunter’s forecast as to what you would do:

You would calmly walk into the back yard and press the down button in the lift that leads directly into your bunker. You would lock yourself in while shaking your head at the idiocy of humankind.
