This is still a work in progress, but I'll update it once I've worked out some of the areas which I've noted. Feel free to post comments or suggestions for wording.
By the way, Expat is the one who provided the original translation of this article. I'm just rewording it.
There is no larger misfortune for LIE's than the impossibility to find a proper use for their business qualities. Their entire life is a search for the possibilities to maximally realize their strengths, mind, and abilities in interesting and promising activities.
Their business qualities are manifested in evaluating objective possibilities, according to specific conditions and situations. They consider it senseless to hold on to old ideas and desires. They recognize that as circumstances change, they should be ready to apply themselves towards newly presented opportunities. They see no reason to stay in an unfavorable situation. They would rather change their situation than continue to put forth effort that’s not getting them anywhere.
Their only design is that they will not rely on their own physical efforts. It is inexpedient, especially because in life still there exists success, luck [need to figure out how to word this to express the idea that "luck" is not random, but the result of taking calculated risks and the realization of opportunities by those who are aware of them], and other objective conditions on which they have the sense to apply their skill and business qualities. They consider it generally senseless to constrain themselves with unfavorable circumstances. They prefer to attempt to change conditions. *Senseless* labor is not for them. [The concept here is that they want to use their business skills to gain financial independence. They do not want to do the same job day after day, year after year, and they will not remain in such a situation. They cannot stand the "get up, go to work, go home, pay bills, go to bed, get up, go to work, go home, pay bills, go to bed, etc." lifestyle.]
They actively fight for the equally fair conditions and the equally great possibilities for all. They fight for the restoration of fairness, and they try to achieve that which is rightfully their due.
If there is no possibility to restore fairness, they search for new places, where their point of view will be heard and where their work will be well rewarded. They are constantly situated in the search for the best conditions and the greater possibilities of application for their business qualities. For them it’s characteristic to frequently change of professions and their place of residence. If it did not work out where they were, they try new places, new possibilities. They are "pioneers". If it was impossible to fulfill themselves in one region, boldly they pass into another, until finally they find for themselves satisfaction.
They prefer to attain high efficiency by the reasonable and rational distribution of their forces. For this very reason, they have no equal in the areas of the development and introduction of new technologies and the rational and effective organization of the working process; they magnificently generate interesting rationalization ideas, they are the authors of many advanced technologies and procedures. [Will reword this area.]
They are the ardent enemy of all irrational and ineffective methods of operation. They see it as valuable to motivate workers with rewards in order to maximize production.
They prefer work with specific practical application and do not have much interest in abstract and removed projects.
They are not capable of working in a manner or towards an end which doesn't make sense to them. They examine each activity from the point of view of its expediency ("why else would I do it?"). They love to work when they know the most effective and efficient way to carry out the work ("why else would I enjoy it?"). [Not sure about the part in parenthesis.]
They consider it expedient to be occupied by the matters that bring high profits. They try not to deal with trifles (they do not engage in criminal business, in spite of the promising incomes, since this does not allow their system of moral values, to which they are subconsiously oriented). They try to avoid con people. They hate liars and cheats.
They love to earn money, and they love to spend it without considering. They do not enjoy saving money or cutting costs by foregoing customary pleasures. They do not always know how to put off such expenditures or how to save their money. Most easily of all they spend money which was gotten "easily" (as a gain or gift). *Usually not inclined to the adventurous projects, the LIE is capable to pack "light" money into the enterprise, is not too thorough in terms of thought out and counted.* [Will reword.]
They do not forgive their failure and errors in work, but outwardly they preserve calmness and optimism: "we learn from our mistakes".
No penny pinching. They hate penny pinchers. They way they see it, if you know how to earn it, you have the right to spend it. They spend large sums of money more easily than smaller sums. They can be stingy about spending money on small things, but they love to buy expensive things (taking into account their quality), regardless of their income level.
They dislike being occupied by repairs, maintenance, or alterations. They prefer to earn well and to purchase new things. Or to hire people to do it for them.
When necessary, they are willing to do hard or unpleasant work, provided that it pays well. They do not like small routine work, studying details, or dull, passive labor. [not sure about this translation]
They do not put up with being micro-managed in the manner, speed, or the quality of their work. They see distrust as insulting. Both in business and in their personal lives, mutual confidence is considered the standard of relations. They do not love to check the work of others in the process of fulfillment. They prefer to evaluate the final result.
They prefer to promise a little less, but then to deliver a little more. They are farsighted. Their actions are evaluated from the point of view of their consequences. They can’t suffer irresponsibilities in any kind of relationship.
They can't stand having to wait for others take initiative. They prefer to own the companies they work for so they can determine their own pay, make their own plan, establish their own standard. They dislike working with a sluggish partner. [This is why SLI's are one of the worst business partners for LIE's. ]
Excellent leader and organizer. They know how to distribute work with respect to the possibilities and abilities of each person. Immediately they evaluate a person according to his business, level of qualification and abilities. Work which they themselves undertake is carried out with enthusiasm, accomplishing a lot in a short period of time.
They see bureaucratic red-tape as a great evil. It greatly irritates them, kills their business activity, and depresses them. Having to live under conditions in which their business qualities do not find application and they are incapable of earning adequate payment for their labor oppresses them. They try not to stay under such conditions for long. They are dynamic. They easily adapt to new conditions. They are able to withstand burdens and deprivations if they know it will pay off if the future.
They are able to work well in extreme situations. This is when they most brightly manifest their willpower, endurance, composure, business keenness, and the skill to accurately calculate their time, force, and possibilities. (After being weakened, they can generally lose track of time.) [?]
They never give up when things get hard. They put everything they have into overcoming difficulties.
