When someone is involved with partying
it can make it easy for you to pick their pattern

How do you go at a little shindig™?
Observing people arranging and participating in a party is one of Elizabeth Hunter™'s favourite pastimes. I am not the clubhouse leader of party animals, as you will see below, when I describe what the Enhancer does at a party. If you know how I loathe functions such as parents cocktail parties, you will laugh. However, it is when folk let their guard that makes a situation of pattern picking heaven prior to Titanium Imposition™. This is what this site is all about.

I use a technique of 'Managing by Walking Around' (MBWA). Some of my best information comes at parties. Hiding in a toilet cubicle is where you can overhear what others are too afraid to tell you. On one famous occasion, a scam to steal beer from their own sports club was discovered by me. No one found out how I found out and stopped it.

You will most likely need assistance :-) This might tell you what but it will not tell you how.

Here are all sixteen patterns - all at the little shindig™. You will be here, too!

Also is an assessment of whether each pattern is a night owl (lower number /16) or not. The kind Emeritus Professor Ridley Kive™ has been in the archives to extract some of this from the vault and from some real life experiences.

Party - First Gauge™: The Director decides the party is not being run efficiently.

Party Addiction™: The Director might enjoy the occasional party but only if this includes the people they know and care for.

Key Party Role™: Plans for the party to be a smooth, foul-free affair. They will do their best to have a good time, but the moment somebody spills something or bumps into their mother's priceless vase, all bets are off.

When on the slosh™: The very fun drunk who enjoys being the life of the party. They often want to take charge and might even (do?) find themselves talking over people. They enjoy being social and fun and want to impress everyone in the room. They are great storytellers and often use their buzz as a way to get everyone together for a funny or exciting story. They will usually enjoy being around loved ones and will try to ensure that the mood of the room is positive and happy. Observe: Most likely to get into a fight.

Type of drunk™: TYPE 1 - HAPPY. Can be identified by their ridiculously good mood. Laugh at everything, will dance when get the chance, speak in hyperbolic superlatives and act as if it is the greatest night in their life.

At the party, The Director proceeds to re-organize the kitchen, living area and bar. The party has to run their way, after all. They crack boisterous, quirky, offbeat and usually / sometimes offensive jokes to anyone who is willing to listen.

The Director is awake at 3am and does this as your upstairs neighbour:

Is conducting a reenactment of WWII.

Why the Director gets up at 4am on days when there was no party the night before:

They have already had their allotted four hours of sleep. Everyone knows that sleep is for the weak.

2. Can it be the Developer - ENTJ?

The Developer is the German Shepherd

Principal Tell Tale Indicator™: Throws a surprise party to dare you. You will get punched.

Party - First Gauge™: The Developer was not involved in the planning or determining the festivities for the party.

Party Addiction™: The Developer is often excellent at putting on a show at a party and are naturally good at entertaining others.

Key Party Role™: Often the host of the party. They know everyone, are confident and well-liked. They will make sure that everybody is having a good time, although they might not be the most empathetic person to approach if someone is having a bad time.

When on the slosh™: When they are drunk they become an even more outgoing and fun version of themselves. They are naturally charismatic people, but will often become the life of the party. They enjoy being around friends and loved ones and will be comfortable expressing themselves when they are drinking. They are not the most emotional people, but when they are inebriated they might find themselves being more affectionate. They will usually attempt to avoid becoming too wasted, for fear that their feelings will become far too exposed. They often try to keep themselves at a normal buzzed level, in order to remain some sense of control. Observe: Brags about the numerous ways they will take over the world. Prone to make unwanted sexual advances.

Type of drunk™: TYPE 2 - SLOPPY Slurs every other word as they degenerate into a combination of sweat, spilt alcohol and vomit. They will fall all over the place as if have a sudden case of vertigo. Others will have to carry them around all night.

At the party, was in attendance at the event dressed in Batcapes and equipped with utility belts. Just like someone else. Networks the ess, aitch, one tee out of the party and wakes up with fourteen competitive job offers the next day. Then immediately hates small talk and meaningless banter so connects an earpiece to their Bluetooth to discuss work projects, to-do lists and the meaning of life with their closer friends. Confuses a lot of people in the process who think the Developer is talking to them when they are actually mentally disrobing them.
The Developer is doing quite well financially. But, of course, more is better and he eyes the Objective Thinker the way a chocoholic eyes an exclusive chocolate store. Their mind quickly calculates the number of ways a relationship could someday prove useful. Then puts on their most charming persona and, with wheels turning, goes over for a chat.
The Director is feeling good. Business is taken care of, so it is time to look for someone to charm. They tell the Investigator that the noise is getting to them wonders if they would like to step outside. The Investigator thinks 'Thank goodness, I’m not the only one here who can read minds, get me out of here' and heads outside. Then reads intentions and smiles and says "On second thoughts, no thank you." while thinking 'Got to love my intuition.
The Developer threatened to call the party off if the noise situation was not brought into control. The Agent spoke up and all was forgotten. Went back into party mode.

The Developer is awake at 3am and does this as your upstairs neighbour:

Is botching a peace treaty with the rival gang across the corridor.

Why the Developer gets up at 4am on days when there was no party the night before:

They get up at 4am every day, in order to get in a two-hour workout, have a balanced breakfast and still be the first one in the office.

Looks way too sophisticated for a bar.

Behaviour when Sleep Deprived: Salty as heck; stay awake if you value your life.

3. Can it be the Results - ESTP?

The Results is the Jack Russell Terrier

Principal Tell Tale Indicator™: Invincible at a party. Do not attempt to fight them.

Party - First Gauge™: The Results puts up the money and the venue for the party.

Party Addiction™: The Results enjoys attending parties and see them as a great way to unwind and recharge after a long week at work.

Key Party Role™: Will own everyone at beer pong at the party. Direct and sociable. If the party is feeling dull, they will do something about it, turning a dull moment into something fun and potentially wild and overstep boundaries.

When on the slosh™: Are often much more outgoing and fun when they are drinking. They will allow themselves to do things they are normally far too nervous to attempt. They are social people, but can be held back by a fear of failure or embarrassment. When they are drunk, they will lose that fear of failure and will take chances much easier. Instead of avoiding embarrassment, theyESTP will jump headfirst into the things they truly want to try. Drinking simply allow the ESTP to be their adventurous selves, without fear of judgment. Observe: Most likely to get caught up in a 'who can drink the most' contest before they pass out.

Type of drunk™: TYPE 9 MANIC. Can be all other types of drunk in the one night.

The Results graciously hosted the party at his house; even putting up a majority of the funds to throw such an elaborate event. While the idea to get together belonged to the Agent, it was actually the Appraiser who suggested throwing the party in the first place. Everyone got on-board.

Was involved very little in the actual planning or festivities as they loathe that. Was in attendance at the event dressed in Batcapes and equipped with utility belts. Just like someone else.

They suddenly realise that, as the host, they are spending so much time interacting with the guests that they are neglecting some of the kitchen duties. Even though kitchen is not their strong suit they jump in and take charge and do a pretty nice job arranging appetizers on plates and getting fresh clean glasses out and ready. That is until the Director comes in and tells that is being done all wrong and takes over.

When the party got going, somehow manages to win beer pong and a game of Risk while intoxicated. Rescues a cat stuck in a tree in an attempt to win the Practitioner over. Seemingly got agitated when the party got out of control but soon went back to party mode. Decided to be the judge of the best costume. Decided everyone needed to eat. Got out the barbeque and then ordered pizza.

The Results is awake at 3am and does this as your upstairs neighbour:

Is shredding the indoor skate park.

Why the Results gets up at 4am on days when there was no party the night before:

They are pulling an hilarious and somewhat risky prank on someone that could only be pulled off under the cover of darkness.

The Results walks into a bar. Here is what happens:

Hits on the Practitioner, gets into a bar fight.

Behaviour when Sleep Deprived: Too enthusiastic for 4am. Please just stop.

4. Can it be the Inspirational - ENTP?

The Inspirational is the Bull Terrier

Principal Tell Tale Indicator™: Does not want a party as they are for babies. Then throws a party.

Party - First Gauge™: The Inspirational realises he can debate anything with anyone at the party.

Party Addiction™: The Inspirational is often great at a party, especially after they get few drinks on board.

Key Party Role™: Without specific intent, can be the rabble-rouser, stoking the flames of a heated conversation regarding sex, politics or religion.

When on the slosh™: Become extremely enthusiastic and positive about life when intoxicated. They become even more outgoing and will often be the life of the party. They enjoy being around people and will be great at keeping everyone entertained. They are usually the happiest drunks and dislike fighting when they are feeling inebriated. They prefer to have fun and have enjoyable conversations with the people around them. They might even become a bit more 'feelsy' when they are drinking and feel more comfortable expressing themselves. Observe: Loudly brags to everyone about their crazy theories.

Type of drunk™: TYPE 1 - HAPPY. Can be identified by their ridiculously good mood. Laugh at everything, will dance when get the chance, speak in hyperbolic superlatives and act as if it is the greatest night in their life.

The Inspirational immediately gets in a debate with the Director about politics, religion and the organisation of the snack table. They do not care at all about how the snack table is actually organised. Later, joins in with the Promoter's group because the brainstorming session going on there is way too enticing. Always at risk of causing a massive argument then leaving.

The Inspirational is awake at 3am and does this as your upstairs neighbour:

Is conducting an impromptu indoor bowling game using metal chairs as pins and has had the Achiever make a suitable ball.

Why the Inspirational gets up at 4am on days when there was no party the night before:

They are experimenting with the four-hour-a-day sleep schedule, which they definitely will not forget all about in two days.

Party - First Gauge™: The Persuader just turns up at the party.

Party Addiction™: The Persuader definitely enjoys a party and are often the person hosting them but do not want one every weekend.

Key Party Role™: The 'I just came to have a good time' party-goer. They check in with anybody who is on their own to make sure they are enjoying themselves. They do not handle confrontation well if things get heated.

When on the slosh™: Can often become even more playful and goofy when they are drunk. They will likely be the person who tells everyone they love them and dishes out compliments by the handful. They are rarely mean drunks and actually enjoy being able to be around people during this time. They might even find themselves becoming physically clingy to the people around them when they are drinking. They are usually the happiest person in the room, trying to bring the mood up as much as they can. Observe: Takes care of their drunk friends even though they are so pissed they cannot see straight. Be thoughtful regarding the clinginess they think you desire.

Type of drunk™: TYPE 3 - SENTIMENTAL. Will spend all night telling everyone how much they love them. They will reminisce about old times, real and imagined. Will cry because other do not handing out with them, as in the old days.

The Persuader becomes part chef, part fortune-teller. Makes cookies for everyone while rallying them together to be their best selves. Frantically scans the room for anyone who looks lonely, then introduces themselves to every single person at the party. In a similar vein to the Promoter, they like to be provocative and theatrical. They tend to have their kit quite together and are able to carry through their big ideas into concrete action and results, even concerning the party. They can be goofy and have a good sense of humour.
They decide that it is time to liven the party up. They burst into a rousing rendition of Queen’s, We Will Rock You and get everyone to join in. The Results really gets into it and, being a keen motivational speaker, follows up the sing-along with funny toasts and cheers.

The Persuader listens to everyone’s life story and is the last person to leave the party. A stranger gives them a tearful hug before saying goodbye.

The Persuader is awake at 3am and does this as your upstairs neighbour:

Is recording a reality TV show.

Why the Persuader gets up at 4am on days when there was no party the night before:

They are volunteering for a crisis hotline that stays open all night.

Principal Tell Tale Indicator™: Gets together with friends and plays truth or dare for five hours.

Party - First Gauge™: The Appraiser ended up as the emcee at the party.

Party Addiction™: The Appraiser can put on, or attend, some truly impressive parties but will often prefer something more mature than an all-night drinking binge.

Key Party Role™: Catching up on all the hottest gossip at the party or asking how that new job is working out. Always sociable and likely to start up a fun group activity.

When on the slosh™: Are naturally social people but become even more outgoing when they are drunk. They often allow themselves to speak up more than they usually do when they are sober. They prefer to let others speak and observe the room in most situations before they jump into conversation. When they are drunk however, they might find themselves interjecting more than usual. They can often become a bit goofier and will make a few sarcastic jokes with a bit of a bite to them. They become less focussed on the emotions of others when they are drinking, which allows them to loosen up and have fun. Observe: Talks about their feelings to whomever will listen or will not listen.

Type of drunk™: TYPE 1 - HAPPY. Can be identified by their ridiculously good mood. Laugh at everything, will dance when get the chance, speak in hyperbolic superlatives and act as if it is the greatest night in their life.

The Appraiser planned the entertainment, actually spending some time on the details. The original plan was for drinks, chips and sweets. Made the others promise to have the cool sweets. The DJ was hired and the Karaoke was kicked off and the Appraiser even got everyone on the dance floor, especially the Agent! And yes, as you already guessed, the Appraiser also went on to emcee the event – oblivious to what friends were currently doing.

At the party, made sure everyone had a drink, a snack and a warm hug. Finds being involved mentoring a group of younger people about various relationship issues and tells everyone else’s secrets.

They go over to congratulate the Objective Thinker as they love a good success story. The Developer is not finished trying to ingratiate themselves with the Objective Thinker and makes a sarcastic comment to the Appraiser. The Appraiser is a class act and always makes sure people feel appreciated and wanted, so they suck it up and walk away.

The Appraiser is awake at 3am and does this as your upstairs neighbour:

Is trying to drown all the neighbourhood children.

Why the Appraiser gets up at 4am on days when there was no party the night before:

They have been entertaining house guests (not a real party) and have woken up four hours before everyone else in order to prepare a surprise breakfast buffet.

The Appraiser walks into a bar. Here is what happens:

Hugs the Enhancer while half drunk.

Behaviour when Sleep Deprived: Strangely quiet. Still the super big sweetheart.

Night Owl? 1 is No.1 Night Owl: Rank 16/16. Recommended bed time: 11.45pm.

7. Can it be the Promoter - ENFP?

The Promoter is the Golden Retriever

Principal Tell Tale Indicator™: They own the night.

Party - First Gauge™: The Promoter arrives late, as per usual, at the party.

Party Addiction™: The Promoter can often be extremely charming and entertaining which causes them to be a real hit at parties.

Key Party Role™: As people pleasers, can make the party. They will go out of their way to make sure everybody is having a good time, but should not spend all their energy on this. They deserve to have a good time too.

When on the slosh™: Are are naturally playful and sweet people, but they can often feel too guarded to expose this part of themselves. They do not always feel safe expressing their feelings to others and might make jokes instead of saying how they feel. When they are drunk they often become extremely sappy and affectionate. They will often feel at ease expressing themselves and will let slip a few things they might feel shy about later on. When drunk they are fun, exciting and extremely affectionate. Observe: Talking to anyone who will listen and will not listen. Beware of the affectionistic tendencies which may cause certain advances.

Type of drunk™: TYPE 4 - INFANTILE. Appears to get younger as the night wears on and gets progressively more child like with each drink. Finally talks in a baby voice. Phenomenon can be found especially in big, fat grizzly bear people.

The Promoter gathers all the misfits and iconoclasts together to take down the popular, oppressive leaders in the group / gathering. Also gives lots of hugs and rescues anyone being bullied. They make best friends forever with everyone they talk to for five minutes. The Promoter is the one who is spontaneous and messy. They do not stick to plans and like to enjoy things in the moment while tending to be very witty, whimsical, provocative and theatrical. They can be goofy with a sense of humour.
When asked to contribute to the shared cost of the ordered pizza, they have no money and a library of excuses to trot out.

The Promoter is awake at 3am and does this as your upstairs neighbour:

Is having an orgy with a number of barn animals.

Why the Promoter gets up at 4am on days when there was no party the night before:

They have had a genius new idea for their next adventure around midnight – and now they are up booking plane tickets and attempting to teach themselves Mandarin.

The Promoter walks into a bar. Here is what happens:

8. Can it be the Counselor - ESFP

The Counselor is the Poodle

Principal Tell Tale Indicator™: Party!

Party - First Gauge™: The Counselor is the life of the party.

Party Addiction™: The Counselor is often excellent at a party and is great at being the centre of attention. They are truly the best entertainers since they actually enjoy making others people laugh and smile.

Key Party Role™: Does not care about the repercussions from partying too hard. Will do whatever it takes to get the party started, even if it is something that might be humiliating for others.

When on the slosh™: Are are naturally fun people, but they become even more exciting when they are drunk. They will often become the center of attention, per usual, and go completely over the top. If they get too drunk though, they might embarrass themselves and become a bit foolish. They usually do not mind this though, as long as everyone around them is laughing and having a good time. They simply want to make everyone around them smile and will do whatever it takes to make the room feel happy and positive. Observe: Probably running around the room and the most likely to jump onto a table and dance.

Type of drunk™: TYPE 7 - NAKED. Will use a single drop of alcohol as an excuse to get in tough with their inner exhibitionist. They may spend some of the night shirtless and may, at some stage, remove all clothing.

The Counselor came in ready to mingle, barely able to wait for the big night. In conjunction with the Agent, figured out what they wanted to do, who they wanted to invite and what they should eat. The Counselor did not really care about the details. That was left up to the Appraiser. They are making sure that everyone is having a good time and feel welcome. If it was at their house, it is a show piece as they love entertaining.

At the party, the Counselor decided to dress as “Cinderella Being Abducted by Aliens” and started inviting people outside of the party's direct circle. Invited were the partner's new boss, the lady at the pawnshop and that cute new guy who they had met at a concert the previous week. Table dances. Suspected to be the spiker of the punch, but was not caught, maybe in conjunction with the Appraiser, because the Developer, the Agent, the Specialist, the Perfectionist and the Objective Thinker were all too worried – each in their own way – that something could go wrong!

The Counselor is awake at 3am and does this as your upstairs neighbour:

Is conducting the opening night at their home based strip club.

Why the Counselor gets up at 4am on days when there was no party the night before:

They have been out roaming all night anyway. Everyone knows nothing good ever happens before at least 3am.

The Counselor walks into a bar. Here is what happens:

Grabs the Practitioner, while vomiting in the toilet.

Behaviour when Sleep Deprived: Probably trying to cuddle or worse.

Night Owl? 1 is No.1 Night Owl: Rank 11/16. Recommended bed time: 11.50pm.

9. Can it be the Specialist - ISFP

The Specialist is the Saint Bernard

Principal Tell Tale Indicator™: Just imagine that scene from Harry Potter.

Party - First Gauge™: The Specialist landed up with lots of work to do at the party.

Party Addiction™: The Specialist is often perfectly capable of being social at a party especially after they have a few drinks to loosen up. They usually dislike large parties and find them stifling and exhausting.

Key Party Role™: Lives it up on their own at the party. They do not need a big crowd to have a good time, which is why they will often be found on their own.

When on the slosh™: When they are drunk, they often feel comfortable opening up to their loved ones, especially their significant other. They will often begin by being playful and fun, but ultimately it will lead to a long and deep conversation. They enjoy feeling connected to their loved ones and will often feel open and affectionate when they are drinking. They might even find themselves wanting to discuss the future and will go into detail about their wants and desires. Observe: Become super affectionate. Tend to stick to being with their family if they are present. Be sure that this affection is really what you want.

Type of drunk™: TYPE 6 - TOUCHY FEELY. Acts more like someone who has taken some pills and they will be a little 'handsy' with anyone.

The Specialist waited for the party plan to be finalised by waiting for an opportunity to place a last-minute bid on a more traditional costume before settling on attending as a Doctor. As the Appraiser's ideas grew, so did the Specialist's to-do list.

At the party, as the arty type, paints a portrait of the Agent and the puppy while jamming to favorite tunes on the headphones. Looks for anyone unique and quirky and takes stunning Instagram-worthy photos of them on the phone. Is admired by everyone, but hardly notices. They let their partner, the Counselor, take the lead while quietly scoping out the room making sure that there are no disagreements or conflict. Secretly hooks up with someone in the basement.

The Specialist is awake at 3am and does this as your upstairs neighbour:

Is bringing home many dogs from the dog shelter.

Why the Specialist gets up at 4am on days when there was no party the night before:

They only ever feel creatively inspired after midnight – which means their best art projects are often products of being awake at 4am.

The Specialist walks into a bar. Here is what happens:

Tries to look aesthetic with slow moves to energetic songs.

Behaviour when Sleep Deprived: Trives on no sleep. Probably wrote an entire album and decorated their house.

Night Owl? 1 is No.1 Night Owl: Rank 9/16. Recommended bed time: Midnight.

10. Can it be the Investigator - INFJ?

The Investigator is the Greyhound

Principal Tell Tale Indicator™: Throws a party and realizes that the reason for the party has passed.

Party - First Gauge™: The Investigator is uncertain as to how things might go at the party.

Party Addiction™: The Investigator absolutely hates large crowds which usually means they dislike parties. They might enjoy small gatherings with people they care about, especially if it results in interesting conversations and bonding time.

Key Party Role™: Takes care of the drunks at the party. Every group has a mother hen and this is what they are. When something goes wrong, whether it the Inspirational who has started a fight or the Results over-indulging, you can bet that they are there to help out. This can take a serious emotional toll so one should not be too surprised if they bounce out earlier to wind down with a nice book.

When on the slosh™: When drunk they can often become much more at ease and comfortable. They might become a bit (lot) louder than their usual low volume selves. They can be somewhat reserved, especially around strangers, but when they have had a few drinks their crazy side often comes out. They might enjoy being able to get a little tipsy, since it can help them relax and feel much less focused on their actions. This can be helpful if they feel that they are judging themselves too harshly and will help remove that fear in the present moment. Observe: Still manages to be the 'mother' of the group. Watch out if they are the host as they allocate the tasks of cleaning up to others while their flute is refilled. Try not to get caught doing this.

Type of drunk™: TYPE 1 - HAPPY. Can be identified by their ridiculously good mood. Laugh at everything, will dance when get the chance, speak in hyperbolic superlatives and act as if it is the greatest night in their life.

The Investigator feels slightly awkward initially, but gradually looks for outliers to connect with. Winds up counseling them on their relationship issues, childhood traumas and existential crises; sessions in the bathroom may be with some drunk person they do not know.
Has been smiling and socialising, seemingly finding a little bit in common with everyone. They were part of the sing-along and completely participated in the cheering. Then they put on their blurry, ambiguous and imaginative smile as the escape is planned. Leaves the party feeling productive, but totally drained.

The Investigator is awake at 3am and does this as your upstairs neighbour:

Is hosting an intervention whereby a person with an addiction or other behavioural problem is being confronted by the Investigator in an attempt to persuade them to address the issue.

Why the Investigator gets up at 4am on days when there was no party the night before:

Someone they loved needed to talk.

The Investigator walks into a bar. Here is what happens:

Is patting the back of the Persuader, depressed and drunk in front of everyone, thinking ‘I should learn to say no to invitations'.

Behaviour when Sleep Deprived: The nicest sleep deprived person that you will ever meet.

Night Owl? 1 is No.1 Night Owl: Rank 7/16. Recommended bed time: 11.00pm.

11. Can it be the Agent - INFP?

The Agent is the Tibetan Terrier

Principal Tell Tale Indicator™: Invites only one friend to the party but has a great time.

Party - First Gauge™: The Agent did the invitations and contacted people to get a crowd to the party.

Party Addiction™: The Agent dislikes a party with a large crowd, especially if the event is filled with strangers. They prefer to have a small get together with people they love and trust.

Key Party Role™: Keeps the party going by cooling things down. Some guests might find the intense chill to be a bit too intense.

When on the slosh™: Are actually very playful and funny individuals with a fantastic sense of humour. This side of their personality can go unnoticed though, especially if they are feeling a bit shyer around their present company. It takes a lot for them to open up to people and they often struggle to feel comfortable enough. When they are drinking, they will most likely become much more at ease. Their hilarious personalities will often come to the surface and they might even make a few ridiculous and crude jokes. They will also be much less afraid to express their feelings and might even tell a few people how they really think of them. Observe: Will try to hug everyone in the room. Probably the one you want not to talk to as you are likely to get trapped, unless this is what you desire. This is especially so if you are their boss or higher. They will trot out their trivial problems - the rubbish bin is not in its spot.

Type of drunk™: TYPE 6 - TOUCHY FEELY. Acts more like someone who has taken some pills and they will be a little 'handsy' with anyone.

The Agent invited close friends and co-workers, making phone calls and sending out handwritten invitations with individual messages attached. Kept in regular contact with the Specialist and the Appraiser. As the Appraiser's ideas continued growing, so did the Agent's to-do list.

At the party, remained snuggled up in the corner with whatever furry creature happened to be around, along with a worn-out copy of “Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban”. Feels like a prisoner at the party (but enjoys the furry friend they made). Well dressed and catches a few eyes. Not entirely comfortable with the attention, avoids eye contact. Circles around the room observing and gently touching the artistic decor. Liking being behind the scenes but does not miss a thing. At the behest of the Developer, called the neighbours to placate and apologise to them. Tells everyone at the party how much they love them and then drunk dials their ex and cries. Went back to party mode. Thought everyone deserved a little prize so made little baggies for everyone to take home.

The Agent is awake at 3am and does this as your upstairs neighbour:

Is creating Fifty Shades of Grey scenes.

Why the Agent gets up at 4am on days when there was no party the night before:

They were reading the best book and they were only 300 pages away from the end.

The Agent walks into a bar. Here is what happens:

Their head hurts and they regret stepping out of their comfort zone.

Behaviour when Sleep Deprived: Either turns into a Promoter or just wants to cuddle and cry.

12. Can it be the Achiever - ISTP?

The Achiever is the Bassett Hound

Principal Tell Tale Indicator™: Thinks that birthdays are for losers so they do not care when the birthday or the party is.

Party - First Gauge™: The Achiever is on the lookout for a game of anything at the party.

Party Addiction™: The Achiever can be charming which makes them capable of interacting and being entertaining at parties. The major issue is that they simply do not enjoy parties most of the time.

Key Party Role™: The DJ at the party who is not likely to take requests for bad music. Natural creativity, energy and introversion mean they are at their best when entertaining others but are not necessarily in the spotlight. Provided the guests trust their friendly neighbour's taste, it is guaranteed that the party is going have an excellent soundtrack.

When on the slosh™: Often becomes much more playful when they are drinking, especially with their loved ones. They become affectionate and fun and will enjoy being close to the people that they care for. They are naturally quiet and independent people, but become much more outgoing when they are drinking. They might feel more open making sarcastic jokes and can be a bit goofy when they are feeling tipsy. They become more comfortable expressing their feelings and are not as reserved during this time. Observe: Probably climbing Mt. Everest who knows. Beware of big temper but long fuse so festering issues may overflow along with the beer.

Type of drunk™: TYPE 5 - VIOLENT. Spends all night positive that others are talking ess, aitch, one, tee about them. At some point will get into an argument or a fight about something dumb, such as someone looking at them in a funny way or someone taking too many potato chips from the dish.

The Achiever comes in second-place to the Results at beer-pong, but then triumphs over everyone else at pool. Tries to avoid all the people who are doing a bad job of hiding their infatuation with him.
As a surgeon, the Achiever is usually calm, serious and focussed. The Counselor thrusts a drink at them and tells them to loosen up. They reply that they are loose, but downs the drink just the same. It turns out the Counselor was not actually singing with the crowd, they were was faking it.
The Achiever decides it would be fun to Unicycle on the roof and ends up in hospital.

The Achiever is awake at 3am and does this as your upstairs neighbour:

Is break dancing in brick shoes.

Why the Achiever gets up at 4am on days when there was no party the night before:

4am is the only time they can get some peace and quiet.

The Achiever walks into a bar. Here is what happens:

Hits the Results.

Behaviour when Sleep Deprived: The floor is their new bed.

13. Can it be the Practitioner - ISFJ?

The Practitioner is the Alaskan Malamute

Principal Tell Tale Indicator™: At the thought of a party, writes in their diary about how old they feel.

Party - First Gauge™: The Practitioner wants the party to be a frictionless event.

Party Addiction™: The Practitioner is often good at hosting family events but might feel uncomfortable at larger parties. They dislike feeling pressured to be social, even though they are often good at interacting with others.

Key Party Role™: Keeps things practical by helping out at the party - picking up glasses etc. They tend to be on the shy side, so you will not find them striking up conversations; although they might like the feeling of picking up after everybody, they need time to unwind.

When on the slosh™: Usually prefer to drink in small amounts and dislike feeling completely drunk. They will enjoy having a small drink in order to relax themselves and let go of their troubles. When they are a little tipsy (achieved per one glass of low alcohol beer), they will often be relaxed and a bit more outgoing. They enjoy having conversations with their loved ones and might feel more affectionate and cuddly. They simply dislike feeling out of control and might believe that drinking too much is a self-indulgent of them. They care more about tending to the needs of their loved ones and do not want to do anything that might harm that. Observe: Most likely to dial their ex. Unless you are family, these are the people to avoid at a party at all costs. They are simply fcuking boring. One small glass of XXXX Gold is a reflection of their personality and fun.

Type of drunk™: TYPE 8 - BROKEN. Sit by themselves, drowning their feelings in a tidal wave of sweet, soul deadening alcohol. They drink because being sober is too terrifying to face. They will not say anything to anyone until they finally piss themselves and break down crying because they are sorry for everything. The tidal wave may be one glass of XXXX Gold though.

The Practitioner helps out in the kitchen and then is found circulating through the crowd with outward signs of ease but inward feelings of exhaustion. Spends the evening holding back the hair of whichever of their friends starts puking first. Escapes outside to feed a stray cat that looks hungry.

The Practitioner is awake at 3am and does this as your upstairs neighbour:

Is actually asleep.

Why the Practitioner gets up at 4am on days when there was no party the night before:

They have an examination / presentation that morning and their mind has been up taunting them with worst-case scenarios since they tried to go to bed at 10pm.

The Practitioner walks into a bar. Here is what happens:

Runs to the toilet while crying.

Behaviour when Sleep Deprived: The grumpiest grump. They are trying their best not to be mean.

Night Owl? 1 is No.1 Night Owl: Rank 14/16. Recommended bed time: 11.00pm.

14. Can it be the Objective Thinker - ISTJ?

The Objective Thinker is the Bernese Mountain Dog

Principal Tell Tale Indicator™: Throws an average party as they do not need anything special.

Party - First Gauge™: The Objective Thinker stayed in the background at the party.

Party Addiction™: The Objective Thinker definitely does not like parties and often find these sorts of gatherings to be rather obnoxious. They prefer to be alone most of the time and become drained by too much social interaction. They prefer one on one with those close.

Key Party Role™: Is a bit to cool for a party but calls Ubers for everybody who has overindulged and you can bet they are going to gossip about it later. If they get dragged along by a friend, they are probably snarkily tweeting about everybody else's shenanigans or snapping photos to smirk about later.

When on the slosh™: Are likely not to enjoy drinking all that much, unless it is in small amounts. They might find that is loosens them up a bit and helps them feel slightly more outgoing. They often prefer to use alcohol as a way to relax and let go of some of their stresses. They usually dislike getting completely trashed and prefer to maintain a healthy buzz. They are naturally controlled people, but sometimes a little alcohol can help them relax and feel more open. This can be a great way for them to let themselves open up to someone they love or admire and express these feelings a bit easier than they usually can. Observe: Can become extremely stubborn / adamant. But these people can be good at a party as they continue to talk common sense consistently, even after a few.

Type of drunk™: TYPE 10 - PROFESSIONAL. Different as they have no symptoms. That is the whole point of maintaining this art form. In other words, they are alcoholics.

The Objective Thinker is a multi-millionaire at the party along with the Developer. The Objective Thinker had started their own company and, through hard work and perseverance, had turned it into an extremely successful company. They stepped in to help the Agent and the Specialist. Dressed as an obscure comic book character, calculated the budgets and worked out all the cost details.

Kept in regular contact with The Agent and the Specialist regarding the party plan and, when it came time for them to take over, did all the shopping with the Perfectionist.

The Objective Thinker was dragged to the party by somebody else and would really rather be at home. Did not like all the noise and the crowd. Spent a great deal of time alphabetising the host's DVDs and books. Then headed up to the roof to look at the stars and listen to a playlist of their favourite songs. However, the Objective Thinker noticed how loud the party was getting and this caused the Agent to get involved. With that sorted, went back to party mode.

The Objective Thinker is awake at 3am and does this as your upstairs neighbour:

Is building an indoor skate park.

Why the Objective Thinker gets up at 4am on days when there was no party the night before:

They volunteered to work the night shift at work as everyone else refused to and somebody has to do it.

The Objective Thinker walks into a bar. Here is what happens:

Calls the police but the police cannot hear their whispers.

Behaviour when Sleep Deprived: Almost as grumpy as the Practitioner but more inclined to hide in a corner away from everyone.

Night Owl? 1 is No.1 Night Owl: Rank 13/16. Recommended bed time: 10.20pm.

15. Can it be the Perfectionist - INTP?

The Perfectionist is the Papillon

Principal Tell Tale Indicator™: Forgets that is their birthday and has to be reminded multiple times. Party is therefore avoided.

Party - First Gauge™: The Perfectionist assessed the capacity limits of the party venue.

Party Addiction™: The Perfectionist rarely enjoys a party and might even cringe at the suggestion. They dislike feeling like other people are watching them or judging their behaviour in any way. If they do attend, they should get a few grogs into themselves.

Key Party Role™: Plans a social experiment at the party such as swapping vodka for water and swapping music to see the impact on the mood in the room. While they may not be the social butterfly, they find social gatherings fascinating and will likely be found turning the whole thing into some kind of study.

When on the slosh™: When drunk they will often become more outgoing and extremely talkative. Their inner thoughts will come out to play and they might even find themselves getting into long conversations with the people around them. While they are normally reserved and prefer to keep to themselves, they will become chatty and willing to express their deep thoughts and even feelings. They might prefer to drink around people they can trust, simply because they become much more exposed during this time. Observe: Most likely to engage in deep conversation that they will not remember the next day. Have been known to fall asleep at the dinner table.

Type of drunk™: TYPE 8 - BROKEN. Sit by themselves, drowning their feelings in a tidal wave of sweet, soul deadening alcohol. They drink because being sober is too terrifying to face. They will not say anything to anyone until they finally piss themselves and break down crying because they are sorry for everything. The tidal wave may be one glass of XXXX Gold though.

The Perfectionist stepped in to help the Agent and the Specialist. Dressed as an obscure comic book character, calculated the time necessary to plan such an event. Calculated the backyard capacity and figured out how many people would fit inside, should it rain or snow.

Kept in regular contact with the Agent and the Specialist regarding the party plan and then when it came time for them to take over, did all the shopping with the Objective Thinker.

At the party, tries to avoid making small talk by taking his Playstation to a private room where the playing of “Elder Scrolls” can take place in peace. Gets an unpleasant surprise when the best friend stumbles in later with their secret crush. When the party became too loud was pressed into service and called the Developer and Agent over to suggest that the neighbours be informed before the police arrived and issued a penalty notice. When that was sorted, went back to party mode.
Started reading something on the mobile and, judging from the amount of scrolls, it is a lengthy article. No one seems to mind and it would not bother the Perfectionist if they did mind. Whatever they are reading seems infinitely more interesting than making social interactions. Oops, spoke too soon. There goes the kind hearted Practitioner over to chat so they will not feel neglected.
At the conclusion of the party, invited all over to play video games at a future date. Has smoked too much weed and wanders off from the party, accidentally ending up in the next suburb.

The Perfectionist is awake at 3am and does this as your upstairs neighbour:

Is operating their meth lab, that they had built in their kitchen, which unfortunately blows up despite the Perfectionist designing it so that was impossible.

Why the Perfectionist gets up at 4am on days when there was no party the night before:

They go to bed at 11am and wake up at 9pm every day; this is perfectly normal for them to have a well earned comfort break.

The Perfectionist walks into a bar. Here is what happens:

Removes the toilet and moves on to play a life simulation game.

Behaviour when Sleep Deprived: Relatively despondent. Boring to be around.

Night Owl? 1 is No.1 Night Owl: Rank 1/16. Recommended bed time: 11.30pm.

16. Can it be the Enhancer - INTJ?

The Enhancer is the Afghan Hound

Principal Tell Tale Indicator™: The thought of a party, particularly where they are the centre of attention, such as their birthday party, will cause their traditional sulking to be evident.

Party - First Gauge™: The Enhancer does not want to attend the party.

Party Addiction™: The Enhancer rarely enjoys parties and usually finds them to be draining and pointless. They prefer to have meaning in their lives and would much rather be around people who challenge them mentally. They prefer one on one time with those close. They do know how to have fun, they just rarely consider a loud and crazy party to be a good time.

Key Party Role™: Wows the crowd with knowledge and intellectual debate, sharing their seemingly endless knowledge of pretty much everything at the party. While they might not make a ton of friends because their confidence can sometimes tip into arrogance, there is no denying that they will boast trivia knowledge to liven up any discussion.

When on the slosh™: They often do not engage in conversations that seem useless to them and will walk away unless something can be gained. When they are drunk however, they will often find themselves lecturing people and attempting to drop truth bombs on the individuals around them. They become more social and willing to express themselves without feeling held back. In most cases though, they will not allow themselves to become overly inebriated unless they are around people they trust completely. They prefer to have control over themselves and will pace themselves when it comes to alcohol. Observe: You cannot even tell that they are drunk.

Type of drunk™: TYPE 10 - PROFESSIONAL. Different as they have no symptoms. That is the whole point of maintaining this art form. In other words, they are alcoholics.

The Enhancer is the greatest planner, but wants nothing to do with functions that need not be attended.

Forced to attend, inwardly berates self for arriving early (a usual circumstance) and makes awkward small talk, which the Enhancer totally detests, with the host (the Results) for a while. Eventually finds a comfortable spot in a quieter corner of the room and, alone or listening to a podcast, analyses the body-language of the various guests. Takes scheduled hydration breaks in an attempt to reduce the impact of their inevitable morning-after hangover.
For once, the Enhancer is not bored and decided to have a rather interesting discussion with the Promoter, with their verbal fluency is easy to talk to, and has a few interesting ideas. With a little encouragement, the Promoter breaks into a wide smile and shares another interesting story. By the end of the party, the Enhancer has figured out everyone’s motives, insecurities and Disc pattern and has lost all respect for the human race.

The Enhancer is awake at 3am and does this as your upstairs neighbour:

Is water boarding their enemies in the spare bedroom which serves as the interrogation room.

Why the Enhancer gets up at 4am on days when there was no party the night before:

They are trying out a new sleep schedule where they go to bed at 8pm and get up at 4am every day. This is so they can have a couple of quiet hours to meditate / think / read before their day begins.

The Enhancer walks into a bar. Here is what happens:

Just came for the free drinks; tries to leave.

Behaviour when Sleep Deprived: Does not need sleep.

Night Owl? 1 is No.1 Night Owl: Rank 5/16. Recommended bed time: 11.15pm.
