- Objective ethics. It is the external relationship, the relationships between other people and their attitude towards me. It is the emotions of other people.
ESE - Hugo
Function #1 — objective ethics (
): “Man is a realm of relationships. If I have relationships with other people, then I exist”. This type is in its element when in a relationship. A Hugo would never put a strain on a relationship no matter what he thinks about other people's attitudes to himself and each other. He does not need to inquire of anybody’s attitude because he knows what it is. He is confident in this area. Stability of his personal relationships combined with stability of other people’s relationships support stability of a Hugo’s personality. A change in existing relationships may emotionally disturb a Hugo. A Hugo may be a closer friend than a Hamlet. These “horizontal" relationships have no boundaries. The more the better! He does not care about the social status of the people involved. It is a personal "world wide web"! Just try putting a Hugo in a room with a disconnected phone line! It may cause anxiety or aggression. Even thinking that his phone may be disconnected because he has not paid the bills stresses him out. A Hugo knows how to smooth things out, ease the tension. He always has a lot of friends. He likes to party and hang out; there he is in his element. "If I do not have relationships, then I do not exist. If I am not needed, I am no more, if I have relationships, then I exist."
Function #-1 — subjective ethics (
): a Hugo ignores his attitude to people. First of all there should be external relationships, and my attitudes are secondary. My feelings and me are real and can be described. But a Hugo finds it difficult to talk about his/her attitude. He/she may not even answer a direct question about his/her attitude. This is irrelevant. Other things are more important to a Hugo. Relationships of the current external world are important. A Hugo tends to go with the flow and does not want to change circumstances or reveal his/her attitude. A Hugo's attitude is an intimate thing; there is no need to share. It does not need an explanation; my behavior speaks of my attitude. Others may interpret my actions and know what my attitude is. But putting it into words is hard and not necessary. A Robespierre, who compliments a Hugo's, does not expect to hear about his attitude. In this area a Robespierre is full of fears, therefore they communicate in another psychological plane.
EIE - Hamlet
Function #1- objective ethics (
): a Hamlet's zone of confidence is external relationships. This type does not have any problems in this sphere as a rule. Stability of relationships is important. If stability of current relationships is shaken it may cause a strong emotional reaction, even aggression. A Hamlet belongs to the aristocratic quadra, and in his/her life there are less confidents, than, for example, in a Hugo's life. Their circle of close friends is very small. A Hamlet deprived of the opportunity to be on stage – in a broad meaning of this word - not only as an actor, but also as a teacher or a leader; when he is deprived of the opportunity to be in public with people looking at him or up to him – he feels devastated. Then both the first and the second (creative) functions are ruined. “If there are no relationships, then I am not needed, I do not exist.” He needs relationships - whether they are good or bad – they need to be there. This type craves relationships with employees and bosses, friends and enemies, customers and business partners; most of all in life he desires audience. Any relationships confirm to me that I exist in this world.
Function #-1- subjective ethics (
): negative values, "bad things". A Hamlet's attitude to people is not important in his/her own eyes; they put other people’s attitude higher than their own. Their relationships with other people always take the first place. 'My attitude to people' is somewhere in the background, often hidden even from myself. He is focused on his relationships more than on his attitude, which basically has no value to him and so he keeps it to himself. He can talk about his feelings and emotions. A Hamlet can easily express his feelings and emotions through acting as if on stage, while hiding his attitude well – unlike, for example, a Napoleon or a Huxley who express their attitudes through their creative second function. It is easier for a Hamlet to wear a mask.
