Disc Patterns the most likely
E. Hunter™ Comment
1. Do not have any long-term friends Look for the number of friends a person has but the quality of those friends. Shady folk have lots of friends. When we first meet someone, we tend to put on our best behaviour. Then, as we open up, we either form a good friendship or let the other person drift away. Well-balanced people will have friendships that have lasted decades, not just a few months. This is due to associating with folk we like and trust. We gravitate and stay near those who benefit us, not those that use or take us for granted. Shady folk do not have long-term friends because they have upset them all or let them down eons ago. The High I's.
5 - Persuader - ENFJ;
6 - Appraiser - ESFJ;
7 - Promoter - ENFP;
8 - Counselor - ESFP.
Look at their social media to count the fake friends. Promoters are the worst.
2. Cannot hold down a job for long; maybe less than a few months Shady folk tend to over-promise and under-deliver. They might get their foot in the door of a good employer, but it will soon become apparent they are under-qualified. Shady folk are often allergic to putting in excess effort so they will turn up late for work, have a habit of upsetting work colleagues and be more trouble than they are worth. Many will not see through the initial probation period. Those who stay can be trouble in all aspects, especially if a narcissist as well. 7 - Promoter - ENFP;
9 - Specialist - ISFP;
11 - Agent - INFP;
15 - Perfectionist - INTP.
The Specialist, Agent and Perfectionist are the market leaders in unemployment per Business Insider.
3. Keep getting caught out in little white lies Many folk tell white lies from time to time, but the difference with shady folk is the frequency of these lies. Shady folk tell lies all the time. Whether they want to boast about something in their life or to cover up a mistake. Lying comes naturally to shady folk. They seem not to notice or care if called out on a lie. They will deny the truth until the other party feels as if they are going mad. 5 - Persuader - ENFJ;
7 - Promoter - ENFP.
The Persuader observed as both my mother and aunt were Persuaders. Promoters trip themselves up as they forget that a fantastic memory is required to be a liar.
4. Use gaslighting and manipulation tactics Gaslighting, a form of mental abuse in which the perpetrator manipulates their victim into thinking they are going insane is just one of the shady folk weaponry. They will use anything to hand to undermine others. They want them off-kilter a little so that they can take advantage. A pretend best friend, the shady folk, will start rumours behind others' backs would tell stories to all other friends. It can end a relationship when someone believes the shady folk. The shady folk can fool others for a long time because a genuine person cannot believe that a friend would do that to someone. 5 - Persuader - ENFJ;
7 - Promoter - ENFP;
6 - Appraiser - ESFJ;
11 - Agent - INFP.
Narcissists generally. Refer Narcissist Managers™
5. Gossipers If the shady folk are gossiping about others people, they have gossiped about you in the past. Gossiping is natural - but there are two forms. Bad-mouthing someone behind their back is two-faced and backstabbing behaviour. Talking about someone in glowing terms when they are not there is perfectly fine. Shady folk will use absence as the ideal time to put others' down and use persuasion and guile to enter into your friends’ lives. Gossiping shows untrustworthy behaviour. 5 - Persuader - ENFJ;
6 - Appraiser - ESFJ;
7 - Promoter - ENFP;
8 - Counselor - ESFP.
The Persuader's standard form - interfering in others' lives.
6. Do not practice what they preach Shady folk are often also fickle. That is that their words do not match their actions. So one might get a shady person banging on about how spiritual they are on social media, but then in real life, they might be rude to a group of churchgoers in the street. Or they may boast about how much they do for charity, and then one hears them slagging off the homeless. They present one side that they want others to see but, when their mask slips, others will see that the reality is much different. 3 - Results - ESTP;
4 - Inspirational - ENTP;
7 - Promoter - ENFP;
8 - Counselor - ESFP.
Inspirationals are sneaky while Promoters are appalling regarding detail and getting things finished and are so busy doing other things they are fickle.
7. Do not respect others' boundaries Shady folk will think nothing of turning up unannounced and expecting to be put up for the night. This is the kind of person that will not recognize others' need for space over their need. Imagine you are having a candlelit dinner with your partner; shady folk will pull up a chair and order dessert and resent being asked to pay fot it. They impose their will and their needs over others' comfort. They are in control, and one has have no say in the matter. This is almost a bullying tactic. At the very least, it is disrespectful. . 1 - Director - ESTJ;
7 - Promoter - ENFP.
These patterns overstay their welcome and take over everything, including the thermostat.
8. Make assumptions about others Shady folk are judgmental and tend to make unfounded assumptions about situations and people. They soak up rumour and gossip because it fuels their need to feel superior over others. The truth is irrelevant to them. They are fact free and live in Fabricated Reality™. If they can blemish someone’s character or ruin a person’s reputation – all the better. One can track this close-minded attitude across many aspects of the shady folk's life. 5 - Persuader - ENFJ;
7 - Promoter - ENFP;
10 - Investigator - INFJ;
11 - Agent - INFP.
You have been warned. The Social Justice warriors. Refer Ess Jay Double-Ewes™ & Vegans
9. Drama queens Have you noticed that everything that happens to someone is a complete drama? Whether they have mislaid their keys or got to work late; it is always the end of the world as we know it. But place your bets that if you have a real emergency, it will not even register on their radar. 7 - Promoter - ENFP. Observed over many decades.
10. Always the victim Whatever happens in a shady folk’s life, it is never, ever, ever their fault. It is as if the universe has conspired to set every conceivable obstacle in their way. And is it not the case that their life just so unfair? Notice a pattern to their universe story. It usually starts with something they have done. For example, the facts are that they lost their job through habitual tardiness. But they will tell you the real reason was that the manager fancied them and had no choice but to let them go because their partner got jealous. Fabricated Reality™. 7- Promoter - ENFP. Classic technique used for decades to pick the Promoter.
