    8. psychopathic - [feel they need to look after themselves above all else]

    bad

    1 - anal, uptight, perfectionists, rigid/regimented, nothing is ever good enough
    2 - obsequious, invasive & overly "helpful", prying, aggressive, two-faced & manipulative, demanding of responsiveness
    3 - go-getter-ness to extremes, fake it until you make it mentality, overly image focused, can be insincere to support image
    4 - it's all about THEM and their FEELINGS that are more profound than other people's feelings (narcissistic)
    5 - intensely intellectual, going on and on in greater and greater detail, every point made by another must be challenged and fiercely debated
    6 - high strung, over-prepares and has to involve everyone else in it, has to account for everything that could possibly go wrong ever with little sense of perspective or likelihood, creates anxiety and stress
    7 - constantly distracting self, no time to talk, can't pay others much attn, flees from negative feelings and conversations, dumps own burdens on others & expects this to be seen as cute, loses self in increasingly busy schedule seeking the ever more interesting, more fun or more stimulating
    8 - emotionally insensitive top coat, thick walls, intimidating
    9 - depressive, spaces out, loses self in the fog, has to merge with others attitudes and be on the "same page" or feels unable to cope

    good

    1 - impressively self-disciplined, takes commitments seriously, potential for ethical integrity
    2 - potential for deep, genuine love if can find a receptacle that doesn't feel smothered, self-sacrifice for those they love
    3 - accomplishes things and can function in the world of ego and image otherwise known as "society," gets how to play the game, assertive
    4 - emotional self-insight, always there with self through the ups and downs, finds meaning
    5 - potential for building original expertise and knowledge, through thought, insight and observation
    6 - trouble-shooting, thorough thinking, applying healthy dose of skepticism, seeing where things may go wrong and acting ahead of time, cooperation with others towards shared objectives, somewhere to belong
    7 - energy and activity, rapid build up of experience, thrill-seeking, enlivens others and raises spirits, entertaining, playful
    8 - strong presence that encourages/inspires strength, courageous, like a rock
    9 - can potentially accept, understand and tolerate every aspect of human nature through understanding self

    Reasons I have/would:


    1s: I actually admire their workaholic tendencies!
    2s: attentive, can be more accepting/accomodating than most, playful
    3s: Energetic, optimists.
    4s: Good sense of humor, original/unique, deep.
    5s: Interesting, focused.
    6s: Understanding, accepting, can be playful.
    7s: Free spirits, positive people, visionaries.
    8s: Strong, dependable, protective, confident.
    9s: Relaxed, low drama, sweet.




    Reasons I wouldn't/regretted it:


    1s: Can be pussies/overly judgmental/blindly hypocritical.
    2s: Paranoid, power-obsessed, two-faced and changeable, also lie a lot; bitches.
    3s: High-maintanence, their list of insecurties is pretty fucking exhausting and the competitive streak can start to seem really pathetic.
    4s: Extremely shifty, also somewhat hypocritical.
    5s: D-u-l-l. Can be more of a mindfuck than they're worth, socially awkward even though they've known you for most of your life wtf.
    6s: Bash-my-head-against-a-wall redundant and unoriginal. I have three 6s as friends and even though I rarely speak to them I still consider them closer than most, but they're so predictable that I can only handle them in small doses. The ESE ALWAYS wants to go out to eat and then go meet guys, the EIE ALWAYS wants to go shopping and then see a movie, and the IEI ALWAYS wants to drink beer, play online games and watch an entire season of her current favorite show. They're so much better as online friends, lol.
    7s: On crack, and not in a good way. Also slightly retarded.
    8s: Bullies.
    9s: Overly conflict-avoidant.
