This page tells what happens if you have got the ess, aitch, one, tees with someone
or they have the same with you.

Attack and Defence

Prerequisite: You should know your own Disc pattern but must know that of the other person.

Limitation: If someone has experienced some sort of trauma, you should realise that this is beyond the limits of the Oxor Method™. Characteristics are shown at the foot of this page. Caution is advised!

This page may cause some distress to some viewers. Our experience is that not too many people like what they consider to be bad news. We have seen it all, in our composing of this site and the over 45 years of business experience of Elizabeth Hunter™. Emeritus Prof. Ridley Kive™ has kindly offered his advice to put this page together, for which we are very grateful indeed.

1. Attack and Defence of the Director - ESTJ

The Director is the Border Collie

The Dictator


Foundation: Pragmatic and hard-working, the Director has a tendency for taking charge of situations that are being inefficiently managed.

Key annoyance factor that gives them the ess, aitch, one, tees: Dishonesty and / or laziness.

Their attack method: Will quickly organise a plan that demotes the other person to a position worthy of their efforts.

When dealing with annoying people: "I will wreck you! Fight me!"

Their defence method: They believe in justice and fairness so do not expect a free-ride as you will never give that. Should you try to win them over through emotional manipulation or trickery, you are extremly foolish and we say you will fail. They have zero patience for it and are easily able to detach from their emotions to see the situation exactly for what it is.

E. Hunter What I PRECICT AFTER A CONFLICT™:

"I foresee that you will continue to always want to get your own way. If defeated, you will pretend that the particular defeat never ever took place."

-
 

2. Attack and Defence of the Developer - ENTJ

The Developer is the German Shepherd

The Opportunist


Foundation: Excellent at mobilizing resources and supervising the implementation of complex, multi-faceted plans.

Key annoyance factor that gives them the ess, aitch, one, tees: Violation of their values, wasting of their time or hurting someone they love.

Their attack method: They make formidable enemies. You should take this into account and endeavour to avoid them becoming angry. They can quickly and efficiently come up with ways to dismantle someone they believe is corrupt or ill-suited for their role. They can instantly objectify their personal feelings and maintain control while they come up with a plan of attack. They can become intensely focussed and passionate about your demise. They will bully you.

When dealing with annoying people: "I will call my lawyer!"

Their defence method: They have powerful insights into what is likely to happen and can use that vision to create a detailed and effective plan of ambush.

E. Hunter What I PRECICT AFTER A CONFLICT™:

"I foresee that you will continue to always be the arrogant winner and ultra sore loser. If defeated, you will always be prepared to proceed with the next attack using your preferred methods."

-
 

3. Attack and Defence of the Results - ESTP

The Results is the Jack Russell Terrier

The 'You Only Live Once' Boss


Foundation: Very much in touch with the present moment.

Key annoyance factor that gives them the ess, aitch, one, tees: They are itching for an opportunity to take down the “bad guy” in any situation. They get a rush from being in action and responding to threats and surprise events.

Their attack method: They know that other patterns often need time to get used to incoming danger and their super quick reaction time will kick in and they can act spontaneously to head off a crisis. Their power is not only physical, however. While still in action they can mentally take apart a problem, look at it from different angles and analyse it to find leverage points where they can combat their enemy quickly and effectively.

When dealing with annoying people: "I will wreck you! Fight me!"

Their defence method: If you try to physically or verbally attack, they will respond faster than you can imagine. In any debate, they are are quick, concise and keenly aware of their opponent’s physical and logical weak points.

E. Hunter What I PRECICT AFTER A CONFLICT™:

"I foresee that you will continue to take charge and take risks. If defeated, you will always be prepared to go forward with the next attack using your preferred methods."

-
 

4. Attack and Defence of the Inspirational - ENTP

The Inspirational is the Bull Terrier

The professional corrector


Foundation: Get their thrills from playing devil’s advocate and questioning pre-established rules and traditions.

Key annoyance factor that gives them the ess, aitch, one, tees: When they are underestimated or forced into a corner.

Their attack method: They can easily unhinge an entire organisation by dismantling one small part of it. They quickly notice how complex systems are maintained and how each piece plays a role. Strategic and visionary, they are able to solve (or create) technical puzzles that will stump even the most analytical mind.

When dealing with annoying people: "I will wreck you! Fight me!"

Their defence method: As risk is not a huge fear, they do not mind putting their security on the line to bring down an opponent. They enjoy the thrill of mixing things up and creating chaos in order to reveal the truth.

E. Hunter What I PRECICT AFTER A CONFLICT™:

"I foresee that you will continue to debate the next issue. If defeated, you will drop the other person especially if you have decided that they are no longer any use to you."

-
 

5. Attack and Defence of the Persuader - ENFJ

The Persuader is the Boxer

The Pied Piper


Foundation: Enthusiastic and inspiring, they are highly aware of other people’s motivations and goals. They can easily tune into the needs, wants and desires of others and find ways to help them grow and develop. They do not appreciate being on the wrong side of anger.

Key annoyance factor that gives them the ess, aitch, one, tees: While their emotional awareness is usually used for good, they can also use it to obliterate someone’s plans if that person is a threat or if they are in an unhealthy, immature or toxic state.

Their attack method: They can easily communicate personally to all the people in a group so that they all feel motivated towards one goal. They are extremely persuasive and insightful. Whether they are creating armies, mobilising people towards a vision, or planting distrust in a group towards their leader, they can be emotionally strategic for evil.

When dealing with annoying people: "I will bitch about it on my blog!"

Their defence method: They make an attempt to calm the situation. If these attempts do not work they will definitely become uneasy and feel like pulling away from the hostile individual. However, when someone is being hostile towards their loved ones they will become protective and angry.

E. Hunter What I PRECICT AFTER A CONFLICT™:

"I foresee that you will continue to work towards calm. If defeated, you will become all hoity-toity, marked by an air of assumed importance, especially if your perpetual mission to interfere in other's people's lives has been challenged. You run the risk of being dropped from that other person's life."

-
 

6. Attack and Defence of the Appraiser - ESFJ

The Appraiser is the Great Dane

The Zach Morris


Foundation: Supportive, interpersonally intelligent and deeply pragmatic they believe in shepherding the people they love and protecting them from harm.

Key annoyance factor that gives them the ess, aitch, one, tees: While their emotional awareness is usually used for good, they can also use it to obliterate someone’s plans if that person is a threat or if they are in an unhealthy, immature or toxic state.

Their attack method: As they have a strong ability to impact the impressions of other people, they can easily destroy the reputation of someone who is a threat or gets on their bad side. They know how to infiltrate social settings and send out a warning about individuals who cannot be trusted.

When dealing with annoying people: "I am the mother!"

Their defence method: Under duress, they can also become physically responsive and impulsive in an attempt to defend or protect themselves from an opponent. They can also respond with an equal level of anger if they feel it is necessary to stop the other person.

E. Hunter What I PRECICT AFTER A CONFLICT™:

"I foresee that you will continue to want anger to be expressed in a calmer way. If defeated, you will move on and let the anger subside. You will appreciate the other person not re-running the same issue around again."

-
 

7. Attack and Defence of the Promoter - ENFP

The Promoter is the Golden Retriever

The First-World Saviour


Foundation: They are often portrayed as the lovable, but hopelessly disorganised goofballs who always have a smile for everyone. If genuine, are more insightful than given credit for. They have a sharp antenna for discerning other people’s motivations and expressing those motivations out loud. If toxic, they are 200% evil.

Key annoyance factor that gives them the ess, aitch, one, tees: They get a “gut feeling” when something is good or bad or when someone is being phony or inauthentic.

Their attack method: If you are trying to pull something over on an individual, or a group of people, they will call you out on it. These types may be empathetic and conscientious, but they also have a knack for testing people, revealing their true intentions and making people aware of their own hypocrisy.

When dealing with annoying people: "I will tell my mother!"

Their defence method: They do not enjoy feeling like they are being attacked and would rather not experience it at all. If someone is being hostile they will likely stay far away, or they might try to charm them into submission. They can turn very aggressive indeed when held to account.

E. Hunter What I PRECICT AFTER A CONFLICT™:

"I foresee that you will continue on with the same issue with fact free rhetoric. If defeated, you will vaporise, never to appear on the horizon again."

-
 

8. Attack and Defence of the Counselor - ESFP

The Counselor is the Poodle

The Flibbertigibbet


Foundation: They are often portrayed as gregarious and outgoing but can be underestimated as they seem so friendly and non-threatening at first glance.

Key annoyance factor that gives them the ess, aitch, one, tees: They are quick to pick up on non-verbal cues and relevant data. They are totally tuned into the present moment and are continuously scanning for reactions and details that do not fit. This makes it easy for them to spot hidden agendas, phony behaviour or unexpected attacks.

Their attack method: They enjoy being the first to react to a surprise event and get a thrill from exceeding limits and expectations.

When dealing with annoying people: "I will tell my mother!"

Their defence method: They become emotional when personally attacked. When challenged or being tricked, they will defend by handing out a very quick reality check.

E. Hunter What I PRECICT AFTER A CONFLICT™:

"I foresee that you will try and avoid hostility or anger as you get rather upset by it. If defeated, you will have uneasy emotions."

-
 

9. Attack and Defence of the Specialist - ISFP

The Specialist is the Saint Bernard

The Esoteric Artist


Foundation: They truly dislike dealing with hostile people and can sometimes appear timid. They do not enjoy being attacked and want to avoid people who behave this way. However, they are strong-willed defenders of those who they believe are persecuted, oppressed or disadvantaged. They pair their emotional awareness with a keen attentiveness to what is happening around them in the present moment.

Key annoyance factor that gives them the ess, aitch, one, tees: Not to be around people who they can trust and rely upon.

Their attack method: While they may seem gentle and easy-going at first glance, they can quickly switch gears and become intense and maybe physically aggressive in defence of someone they are protecting. They enjoy the thrill of action and physical experience and can move quickly to take action in a situation where the values or safety of someone they care about is threatened.

When dealing with annoying people: "I will tell my mother!"

Their defence method: They can quickly spot signs of inauthenticity or hidden motives. This makes them very hard to trick or manipulate and this is their line of defence.

E. Hunter What I PRECICT AFTER A CONFLICT™:

"I foresee that you will move from being timid into the attack dog, if required. If defeated, you will go to water and likely try to pull away from the angry person, especially if they continue to act in this way."

-
 

10. Attack and Defence of the Investigator - INFJ

The Investigator is the Greyhound

The Unicorn


Foundation: They are often underestimated th that they have a strong sense of the future and what is likely to happen. They easily see how situations will unfold and how people will be affected. They can often forge empathic connections with others and understand how they are feeling on a deep, intuitive level and these talents are mostly used for good but not always.

Key annoyance factor that gives them the ess, aitch, one, tees: Betrayal of themselves or hurting someone they love.

Their attack method: When betrayed, they can be experts in psychological warfare. They tend to know exactly the right words to say to get underneath someone’s skin or the exact scenarios to put them on edge. They can mentally unhinge people as a way of getting them to own up for their mistakes and take responsibility. Sometimes this ability can be used in a healthy way and other times it can be destructive.

When dealing with annoying people: "I will bitch about it on my blog!"

Their defence method: They will become extremely protective of a person, especially if it is someone close.

E. Hunter What I PRECICT AFTER A CONFLICT™:

"I foresee that you will generally move on when the issue is resolved although bringing up ancient history is an unfortunate trait. If defeated, you will door slam the other person as if they never existed. This reputation is very well deserved."

-
 

11. Attack and Defence of the Agent - INFP

The Agent is the Tibetan Terrier

The Sensitive Druid


Foundation: They have an innate desire to champion the underdogs of the world. They are not easily dissuaded from their cause and, while they may seem serene and gentle at first glance, they can become fiery and intense if provoked.

Key annoyance factor that gives them the ess, aitch, one, tees: The picking on an animal, a child or the disadvantaged. When someone tries to manipulate them. When someone is being angry towards someone else.

Their attack method: They will take you down with a commitment and resolve that defies their ordinarily easy-going nature.

When dealing with annoying people: "I will bitch about it on my blog!"

Their defence method: They tend to resist being pulled into other people’s feelings, instead preferring to stay true to their own feelings and what they truly believe is important in life.

E. Hunter What I PRECICT AFTER A CONFLICT™:

"I foresee that you will continue with the strategy to calm the situation, especially if it is someone close. If defeated, or if the conflict continues, you may not want to remain close to the other person."

-
 

12. Attack and Defence of the Achiever - ISTP

The Achiever is the Bassett Hound

The Mysterious Commitment-Phobe


Foundation: Observant and adaptable, they tend to be the enemy you never saw coming. Beneath their stoic exterior, they are always picking up on relevant data, information and nonverbal cues. They inwardly analyse situations and events to find expedient solutions to problems. They have a terrible temper but a long fuse.

Key annoyance factor that gives them the ess, aitch, one, tees: Emotional manipulation. Hostility directed towards them.

Their attack method: They use knowledge of all their enemies’ weaknesses, tendencies and tactics to beat them to the punch, surprise them or overtake them physically, or logically dismantle them in an argument. It is as if an energy builds up within and, when it hits its tipping point, it explodes without warning — often launching you fearlessly in new directions or violent temper tantrums."

When dealing with annoying people: "I will wreck you! Fight me!"

Their defence method: They tend to resist being pulled into other people’s feelings, instead preferring to stay true to their own feelings and what they truly believe is important in life.

E. Hunter What I PRECICT AFTER A CONFLICT™:

"I foresee that you can swap from being steady and consistent to be completely spontaneous, making you a bit unpredictable. If defeated, you will walk away from the hostile individual."

-
 

13. Attack and Defence of the Practitioner - ISFJ

The Practitioner is the Alaskan Malamute

The Martyr


Foundation: Detail-oriented, observant and careful they are not easily turned into enemies. They prefer to stay at peace with the world around them and do not like confrontation or conflict.

Key annoyance factor that gives them the ess, aitch, one, tees: If someone violates one of their deeply-held values or hurts someone close they can become surprisingly intense and focused in their retaliation efforts.

Their attack method: They know that they are hard to distract from their cause and they can work in a patient, methodical fashion to dismantle every detail of their enemy’s plan. They can also quickly scope out emotional weaknesses, hasty mistakes and bad habits that they will use against their enemy. They can be very passive-aggressive.

When dealing with annoying people: "I will bitch about it on my blog!"

Their defence method: They will attempt to calm the other person down or find a way to make things better if someone starts behaving in an angry manner. If this does not work, they will become frustrated and rather upset, since they are naturally very sensitive to the emotions of others.

E. Hunter What I PRECICT AFTER A CONFLICT™:

"I foresee that you will continue to find conflict an issue and will avoid such situations virtually at all costs particularly if faced with a difficult decision. If defeated, you will retreat inward and attempt to ignore those negative emotions."

-
 

"You wouldn’t worry so much what others think of you if you realized how seldom they do."

14. Attack and Defence of the Objective Thinker - ISTJ?

The Objective Thinker is the Bernese Mountain Dog

The Square


Foundation: Focused, logical and quick to notice patterns and inconsistencies, they are the enemy you never saw coming. At first glance, they seem reserved and down-to-earth, not particularly intense or combative. But the more time they spend around people the more they pick up on hidden weaknesses, habits, motives and tendencies.

Key annoyance factor that gives them the ess, aitch, one, tees: If someone poses a threat.

Their attack method: They quickly turn their enemy’s defects against them while patiently composing the perfect scheme to render the enemy's plot ineffective. They will have all the facts. They are persistent, dedicated and not easy to distract. This can be a formidable weapon, especially if their opponent is easily sidetracked.

When dealing with annoying people: "I will call my lawyer!"

Their defence method: They will attempt to shut the enemy down completely and absolutely bombard them with facts. If this does not work, they will likely disconnect from the individual and avoid them entirely. Behind the scenes, they will try a path that is slightly different from the one they were previously on in order to avoid a repeat of a previous failure.

E. Hunter What I PRECICT AFTER A CONFLICT™:

"I foresee that you will continue to only engage in conflict when armed with more facts than the other side knew existed. If defeated, you will take some time for yourself before bouncing back from the defeat."

-
 

15. Attack and Defence of the Perfectionist - INTP

The Perfectionist is the Papillon

The Data Junkie


Foundation: Knowledge is power, and they have that in an industrial quantity. They absorb data like a sponge and then they look for ways to analyse and critique that data to see how it fits into a larger context. In disaster situations or crisis scenarios, they can easily detach from the current situation to find solutions and analyse various angles and leverage points.

Key annoyance factor that gives them the ess, aitch, one, tees: Inconsistencies.

Their attack method: There is hardly a trap that can contain them from where they cannot analyse their way out. They can mastermind intricate plans of revenge and, if triggered, verbally attack an offender with scathingly accurate, debilitating assessments. They are the customer from hell, hands down.

When dealing with annoying people: "I will bitch about it on my blog!"

Their defence method: They will definitely display a sense of dominance towards someone who seems to be attacking them unnecessarily.

E. Hunter What I PRECICT AFTER A CONFLICT™:

"I foresee that you will continue to bat on with theory well ahead of practical considerations. If defeated, you will often retreat and begin to seclude yourself from others as you take defeat hard and you should move on to the next project."

-
 

16. Attack and Defence of the Enhancer - INTJ?

The Enhancer is the Afghan Hound

The Nerd Emperor


Foundation: Visionary and confident, they are skilled at anticipating far in advance how situations will likely play out. Once they sense how things will unfold, they work backwards to see the most likely trends and how each piece or person played a part. This makes it nearly impossible to hide a plan from them.

Key annoyance factor that gives them the ess, aitch, one, tees: They are also more insightful than people realise into the hidden motivations of others. They notice phoniness, irrational behaviour, lack of factual support and emotional manipulation quickly. They do not appreciate aggression towards anyone close, including work colleagues.

When dealing with annoying people: "I will call my lawyer!"

Their attack method: They have no problem calling it out idiots on the spot. Justice and fairness is central to their value system and if someone betrays that sense of justice they can become a very daunting opponent. They can quickly organise a plan of attack that is both complex and filled with contingency plans so that the attack is nearly impossible to avoid.

Their defence method: They have no issue in handling someone who is being a bit hostile and are rarely ever afraid of this. They will attempt to calm the person down but if that does not work they will simply shut them down entirely. They do not feel the need to deal with people who are being irrational and will rarely waste their time with them at all. If that person cannot control their emotions then they cannot see any reason to encourage their negative behaviour with much of a response. A key defence mechanism is based on noticing any inconsistencies in the argument of the enemy. If your tale contains terminological inexactitudes as well, then you may as well wave the white flag. They think that 40 years ago is recent and details easily recalled precisely. They will definitely be protective of their loved ones if someone is being aggressive towards them.

E. Hunter What I PRECICT AFTER A CONFLICT™:

"I foresee that you will continue to operate with your legendary suit of armour and high walls and not be offended by idiots. If defeated, the preferred method is to door slam the enemy and they might as well have never existed on the Earth's surface. If they remain in the frame, they will only be communicated with on a strictly limited basis where avoidance is not possible."
