When I see rebellion, risk taking, competitiveness, trust
or someone so stuck or anything in between,
I reach for the E. Hunter Majik Rebellion, Risk-taking,
Competitiveness & Trust Matricies™

E. Hunter Rebellion, Risk-taking, Competitiveness & Trust Matricies™

This is a more advanced technique and for very specific situations.

If you consider someone a rebel, they probably fit either or both of these definitions.
Merriam Webster Dictionary- "To act in or show opposition or disobedience' and 'To feel or exhibit anger or revulsion."
Cambridge Dictionary- "If someone is rebellious, they are difficult to control and do not behave in the way that is expected.”
This aspect can vary in different specific situations but you are better off now, already, are you not?

If you see someone taking pure risks or waiting for all the traffic lights to turn green before they start the car, it can be a massive clue in picking their pattern. The Inspirational is the highest risk taker and the next two are close behind. The Practitioner is the lowest which seems to correlate with their lack of ability in management.

If you see someone being competitive or otherwise, it can be a massive clue in picking their pattern. The Director is the most competitive (and a very sore loser) with the next five are close behind. The Practitioner is again the lowest which seems to correlate with their reputation as a follower.

If you see someone being trustworthy or otherwise, it may be wise to check the matrix. This is necessarily subjective but the cohort love it. The Objective Thinker is rated the most trustworthy as they are the most reliable while the Inspirational is the lowest as they can be sneaky.

You will most likely need assistance if you are here by accident :-) This might tell you what but it will not tell you how.

Are not exactly rebellious most of the time. Ranks higher than most others on being conventional, fitting in and working well within a structured, conservative setting.
However, if forced to work within an inefficient system, they do not mind speaking up and pointing out discrepancies.
Are not so fixated on authority that they will take orders from someone who does not know what they are doing.
Are opinionated and enjoy speaking their mind. Responsibility, good leadership and logical thinking are key things they require in an authority. If the world is being run by someone who they see as illogical and incompetent, they will indeed rebel against that authority and go against the rules they see as infringing on their freedoms.
Watch out for tendency to take over your life.
'My way or the highway' stuff.
Brings direction to those in need of leadership.

Dominant and independent, they do not want to take orders from anyone but themselves. While they may understand the logic for rank and bureaucracy, they tend to stay in middle-management positions for only so long before they are ready to be in charge.
Like to run the show and will rebel against micro-managing or rules based on social niceties or superstitions.
Do not mind toying with new ideas, questioning traditions or venturing out on their own even if it means going against the norm.
Watch out for bully boy tendencies.
Thrives in the impossible.

4.3% - 10
Knows how to play well with others for the most part, but they do not have an innate respect for authority in most cases.
They know what authorities want to hear, but they are more individualistic than many people realize. They often find bureaucratic rules and traditions to be silly and pointless. Doing their best work often means having freedom and being able to make shortcuts in order to make things more efficient. Accordingly, they have little patience for oversights, constraints or being 'managed'.
They can play nicely until someone tightens the reigns on them a little too hard and then they will lash out or undermine the authority in order to free themselves.
Watch for being great in a crisis.
Does when others do not.
4 - Inspirational - ENTP
1
3.2% - 12
Resist traditions and conformity, opting to experiment and look at situations from new angles. While others stick within the established rules, they are always trying to look beyond them to see if there are any other more evolved ways of thinking.
Enjoy playing with unconventional ideas, innovating and testing information to see if it stands up against logical scrutiny. Rules and traditions are made to be questioned and they enjoy playing devil’s advocate to any authority who tries to push their agenda on them.
Masters of debate and feel a flourish of self-gratification when they can win an argument especially against someone of a higher rank.
Watch out for debate just for the sake of it.
Finds what's possible in what seems impossible.

Are visionaries in every sense of the word. And while they exude warmth and friendliness, they are not afraid to speak out for their vision, even if it ruffles a few feathers.
Often spend a considerable amount of time crafting their words to make the highest impact and influence people towards their goals. They want to make a good impression and they like to please others, but not at the expense of their values or their dreams.
Social Justice Warrior Type.
Watch out for extreme tendency to interfere.
Brings love where there is hate.
6 - Appraiser - ESFJ

12.3% - 2
Craves a life filled with harmony and predictability. They thrive on a steady routine and a peaceful, structured existence. Practical and friendly, they see the basis for most rules and will abide by most as long as they do not violate a personal value. An example of this may be as an avid homeschooler who makes it very clear that if homeschooling ever became illegal it would be done regardless.
When it comes to issues of right or wrong, almost everyone will break some rules to live in accordance with their ethics. That said, they tend to avoid conflict and score high on socialization. This may be interpreted as being more conscientious, well-organized, easily conform to rules and seldom get into trouble in comparison with others.
Watch out for a tendency to gossip.
Sometimes requires follow up on boring matters.
Brings together those who are apart.
7 - Promoter - ENFP

Their minds naturally question everything and they rather enjoy being non-conformist, different and unconventional.

Often sympathetic rebels. Unlike the gruff, brusque rebels of television shows, they are more likely to quietly rebel against authority.
Do not care so much about getting group approval as they care about approving of themselves and having conviction in what they do.
Doing what is right on an individual level matters more to them than fitting in with the group. This can mean standing up to a bully in order to protect a misfit, protesting against corruption even if one’s own family does not support the protest or simply wearing a style that one’s own cultural group frowns upon.
Need to be free to be themselves and this can make them true rebels at heart.
Watch out initially as the rebellious characteristics are not readily visible. Takes time for this to emerge so the cohort reports.
Reluctant to change.
Splashes colour onto a grey world.
10 - Investigator - INFJ
14
1.5% - 16
Know how to be warm and tactful, but they have an independent streak that can make them seem more rebellious than people would expect and tactless.
Score higher on achievement via independence than most other. This means that they crave freedom and have no problem taking individual initiative.
Feel an intense pull to follow their vision, even if it leads them down paths that are non-conformist or shocking to others. At the same time, they crave harmonious relationships, so they often feel a push and pull between wanting to please others and wanting to follow their own unique path.
Social Justice Warrior Type. Watch for tendency to door slam, for which they rank as No. 1.
Can be very determined.

May not seem like the cold, gruff rebels that are found in movies or novels. But these folk are individualists all the way.
Are most likely to see themselves as different, non-conventional and non-conforming. This makes sense when we understand how they think. They naturally question social norms and traditions in order to be authentic and find out what is really true and right for them as a person.
Often speak out against injustice even if it makes them less popular. Adherence to individual values will nearly always trump going along with the group.
Social Justice Warrior Type.

Naturally skeptical of societal constructs and social norms that are enforced on others. They prefer to go it alone and forge their own way in life.
Often skeptical about others’ intentions. Insist on being themselves even if it causes friction.
As they are not easily drawn in by others’ charms and persuasions, they are able to see facts in a fairly unbiased way. They pride themselves on being realists and their thinking side helps them to weigh lots of disparate information at a time to determine what is true.
While they are often rebellious, they can use this to discover truths that others may miss.
Watch for very bad temper at the end of a long fuse.
Fixes what is broken.

Does not exude a rebellious nature in most cases, but they have their own private rebellious fantasies. Although they tend to be rule-followers, they have often imagined themselves taking down irritating authorities with highly crafted, well-thought-out arguments. The shower seems to be an ideal place for them to play out these rebellious scenarios and perfect their words.
Enjoys having their lives as comfortable and stable as possible and if someone is charge in wreaking havoc on that part of their lives they can become sarcastic and insubordinate as a way to defend themselves.

All the research indicates they are not particularly rebellious.
Ranks highly on conforming to rules, seldom getting in trouble, suppressing hostile feelings and appreciating convention and well-organized, predictable situations.
Some consider themselves rebels of a sort. While they may obey most rules, they are particular about their personal freedoms and their personal space. As an example, may rebel against rules that infringe upon their personal beliefs; religious or otherwise. They may strike up a cause or protest in support of their values.
While they like a calm, tranquil life, they do have an element of rebellion given the right circumstances.

E. Hunter's Comments
1 Director ESTJ
6
Always invests 100% and does not want advantage to be taken of that investment.
Does not commit to anything halfway. Feels a strong sense of diligence and obligation to the people, communities and positions invested. Wants that same sense of investment in return. Once a serious commitment is made to something or someone, it is prioritized above everything else. The last thing wanted is for someone to take advantage of that tendency.
Friendly and trustworthy but, at first glance, can seem a bit cold to others. Their focus on efficiency can be intimidating and so new people do not always find themselves wanting to confide in them. While they will do anything for their loved ones, they do not focus much on feelings or sharing their emotions. This can make it so people do not want to open up and share their feelings / trust to the Director.
Ranking is a bit harsh due to a propensity for them to push boundaries regarding entitlements, customer service etc. together with their initial coldness.
As a customer you would not trust that trivial complaints will waste your time.

Secretly thinks everyone else is incompetent.
Maybe not everyone and maybe not entirely incompetent, but they secretly believe that most people are at least a little less competent than they are. They have trouble placing their trust in others because they cannot see how anyone else could come up with a plan for the future that is better than the one they figured out. They would prefer to just go it alone and trust others only with what is only absolutely needed.
Can sometimes (often) appear intimidating at first and so some people might not feel like they can open up to them. They are not necessarily the pattern that makes others feel like they can confide in them with their feelings and secrets. This is not because they are not trustworthy, it is mostly because they can appear intimidating to people who do not know them. For those who know them and care for them, they are extremely trustworthy and reliable companions. They will do just about anything to defend the ones they care for and this just is not something people always know right away.
Ranking is down due to their aggressive bullying style and they do not appear to be trustworthy in business as much as they are for those for whom they care.

Knows firsthand how selfish people can be.
Does not wear rose-coloured glasses. They have been around the block a few times and have seen it all – people lying, cheating, betraying each other and throwing one another under the bus to benefit themselves. They are distrustful of others because they are realistic about others in a way that many other people are not. They know that it is human nature to be selfish, so they are careful to protect their own heart.
May not always be someone that others trust immediately since they are often mysterious people. They can often bounce around and this adventurous nature can sometimes make strangers feel uneasy confiding in them. While they enjoy being someone others can come to, they do sometimes seem like they will not be great at keeping secrets since they live so much in the present moment.
Have a well earned reputation of throwing others under the bus, especially in a business sense.
Wise folk should be justifiably wary.

Has an objective understanding of the dark side of the human psyche.
Most people slap on rose-colored glasses when they are falling in love or investing in a new opportunity – but this pattern has never owned a pair of those. They have no problem staring down the human psyche for what it is – a self-preserving entity, that functions to protect the individual in question at all costs. It is not so much that they think people are inherently malicious – it is just that they know they are inherently out to protect themselves. So they do the exactly same by never trusting anyone else above themselves.
Come across as outgoing and friendly people and have a way of making others feel comfortable around them. If they want someone to trust them and open up, they are usually good at gaining their trust. It depends on the mood they are in and the way they are expressing themselves in that moment. They can certainly make themselves more approachable and so this causes people to confide in them much more openly.
Do not be taken in by their openness. They can get awfully mixed up with information, mis-information and lies. They only trust themselves.
Their reputation as being on the sneaky side is a key factor in the ranking.

Does not want to plan an entire future with someone who is just going to leave.
Does not do ‘casual’ anything. If they are dating someone, it is because they see a future with them. If you are working somewhere, it is because you want to advance in the corporation. When they go ‘in’ on a commitment, they go all in – and pour their heart into it. They are cautious about placing their trust in others because they want to make sure that they are in it for the long haul as well. Otherwise, they are making plans around something that might disappear at any moment – leaving both their heart and their plans for the future in the lurch.
Often finds that new people confide in them and trust them without even knowing them that well. They enjoy being someone that others can come to and they are often good listeners. Their sense of compassion and empathy is something which naturally brings people to them. Most of the time, at first glance, the Persuader is someone who others find extremely trustworthy and so they want to open up and share their secrets. They also have a way of making people feel understood and completely appreciated, which helps increase trust in them.
Ranking takes into account that this pattern can sometimes be fake and lie about emotions which gives them the nickname of 'The Devil'.
They also have a well honed propensity to interfere which penalises their score.

Is used to giving more than they get back.
Are a giver by nature and supporting those around them comes as naturally as breathing. Unfortunately, others are not always quite as openhearted as they are. They have learned through trial and error that they have to be careful and with whom and what they invest their heart in. They do not want to have to limit their love so they need to find someone who is ready to give it back in equal measure before they let themselves get too invested – and end up heartbroken at the end of it.
Are definitely seen compassionate people and even strangers will confide in them. They have a way of making others feel understood and often show themselves to be trustworthy. They often have plenty of strangers constantly confiding in and opening up to them. This is because they make people feel comfortable and do not present themselves as someone who will judge. Most people feel safe sharing with them because they are compassionate and warm people.
A ranking of four is pretty right with this pattern.
7 Promoter ENFP
14
In the past have been burned by their own wild imagination.
Has a tendency to rush into things headfirst, without much thought, with their imagination running wild alongside them. More than a couple of times they have found themselves disappointed when the reality of a person or a situation does not quite measure up to the way it was envisioned in their mind. They are more cautious about handing over their trust today as they have learned that it is best to let their head catch up before their heart leaps entirely over the fence.
Might not be seen as trustworthy initially since they are outgoing and sometimes enjoy bouncing from one place to another. The fact that they might seem scattered at first can make some people feel a bit uneasy. They are often trustworthy people who will do anything for the ones they love and people who are close to them definitely know this about them. This part of their personality is not always recognized at first glance though, and so some people might not feel as ready to open up to them.
If you are not close, which is obviously the majority of the cohort, it seems fair to have them ranked at fourteen.
They do not trust you and you do not trust them as they let you down on virtually every occasion.
Unreliability, lateness, not returning favours, not finishing things, evaporate - the page is not big enough.
8 Counselor ESFP
13
Are easily affected by relationships and are scared of getting hurt again.
It may sound a little dramatic, but it is true. They feel both the highs and the lows of a relationship very intensely. This means when it is good it is great but when it is bad it is really bad. They are cautious about who they place their trust in because they invest a lot of their heart into any relationship they enter into. They are afraid of someone walking away with it, leaving them empty and alone.
They are warm and loving people but they sometimes (mostly) seem a bit scattered. The fact that they enjoy living in the present might make people nervous about confiding in them. They are not always seen as trustworthy people at first glance simply because of their distracted and sometimes wild personalities. While they would do anything for their loved ones, they do sometimes share information without meaning to.
They rank so low as they have a reputation of not keeping their mouths shut.
They are spontaneous and they will often choose to execute on ideas before considering all the consequences.
So why place any trust in them?

Are often warm and understanding people but strangers might not notice this. They are people who enjoy being supportive of their loved ones but they sometimes seem a bit scattered at first glance. Strangers might not know if they can confide in them since they have a way of bouncing around and can seem a bit distracted at times.
Have a tendency not to be too good at keeping a lid on things which bother them.
This is good in that they have a distinct lack of the ability to be fake.
People sort of know how they feel about them and how they feel about stuff in general. This factor ups their ranking.
10 Investigator INFJ
10
Does not want to plan an entire future with someone who is just going to leave.
Does not do ‘casual’ anything. If they are dating someone, it is because they see a future with them. If you are working somewhere, it is because you want to advance in the corporation. When they go ‘in’ on a commitment, they go all in – and pour their heart into it. They are cautious about placing their trust in others because they want to make sure that they are in it for the long haul as well. Otherwise, they are making plans around something that might disappear at any moment – leaving both their heart and their plans for the future in the lurch.
Are often the people that others can confide in and they feel comfortable sharing themselves openly with the Investigator. This is because they have a strong sense of empathy and do not like appearing judgmental towards others. People can often sense this high level of understanding and compassion which emanates openly. They enjoy being someone that others trust and this is something which does not take much for them to gain from those around them.
Ranking is lower as you do not really know where you are standing with them sometimes.
They often have their own private narratives in their head in which you are the unwitting participant.
You are judged on that when you do not even know it is happening. Sometime this is revealed with loose lips, so beware.
Have the reputation of the door-slammer as well.

In the past have been burned by their own wild imagination.
Has a tendency to rush into things headfirst, without much thought, with their imagination running wild alongside them. More than a couple of times they have found themselves disappointed when the reality of a person or a situation does not quite measure up to the way it was envisioned in their mind. They are more cautious about handing over their trust today as they have learned that it is best to let their head catch up before their heart leaps entirely over the fence.
Are often seen as trustworthy and honest people and others enjoy sharing with them. With the Agent, people often feel that they can share who they are openly without this information being shared elsewhere. Even if they do not agree with this person’s choices, there is still a sense of trust within them and an openness which helps people feel more comfortable around them. People do often see them as trustworthy and someone they can turn to if they need comfort and understanding.
The ranking probably could be higher but it is once again that they frolic in the dreamscape of their imagination (La La Land) which penalises the ranking accordingly.
12 Achiever ISTP
8
Knows firsthand how selfish people can be.
Does not wear rose-coloured glasses. They have been around the block a few times and have seen it all – people lying, cheating, betraying each other and throwing one another under the bus to benefit themselves. They are distrustful of others because they are realistic about others in a way that many other people are not. They know that it is human nature to be selfish, so they are careful to protect their own heart.
Can have an often mysterious demeanor which might make it difficult for new people to trust them immediately. They have a way of distancing themselves and so they are not always the people that others want to confide in when they first meet. While people do often search for attention from the Achiever, they might not feel as if they can confide in them since they are not the most open people.
Ranking is higher than some might give. But they are okay, with appropriate caution.

They do not want to have to limit their love so they need to find someone who is ready to give it back in equal measure before they let themselves get too invested – and end up heartbroken at the end of it.
Are often seen as trustworthy people right away and so this is why they often get people opening up to them. Their sense of warmth and compassion makes it that even strangers feel comfortable sharing with them. This is because they have a way of making others feel comfortable and at ease around them. They care about being supportive of others and often do not mind being someone in whom strangers confide.
Trust is more focussed in personal circumstances than in business.
However they are renowned as reliable and loyal followers in a workplace.
14 Objective Thinker ISTJ
1
Always invests 100% and does not want advantage to be taken of that investment.
Does not commit to anything halfway. Feels a strong sense of diligence and obligation to the people, communities and positions invested. Wants that same sense of investment in return. Once a serious commitment is made to something or someone, it is prioritized above everything else. The last thing wanted is for someone to take advantage of that tendency.
Often seen as a bit standoffish at first, but that does not mean they are not trustworthy. They stand by their word and do not like being someone who changes their mind last minute. This makes them extremely trustworthy and reliable, but they are not always the person that others confide in when they initially meet. They might not seem like the most open or social people and, while they are easy for others to trust, most people will not open up to them straight away.
Are the most reliable pattern on the chart. If you tell them to do something, you can trust that they will do it. They honour their word and their commitments above all else. If this pattern is committed to being your friend or to do the job at hand, they are going to prioritize your trust.
Ranked number one for a reason.
You just need to get to know them first.
Trust extends to the business world where they can be Level 5 leaders.
15 Perfectionist INTP
15
Has an objective understanding of the dark side of the human psyche.
Most people slap on rose-colored glasses when they are falling in love or investing in a new opportunity – but this pattern has never owned a pair of those. They have no problem staring down the human psyche for what it is – a self-preserving entity, that functions to protect the individual in question at all costs. It is not so much that they think people are inherently malicious – it is just that they know they are inherently out to protect themselves. So they do the exactly same by never trusting anyone else above themselves.
While they are often very trustworthy people, this is not necessarily how people see them at first glance. They are not necessarily the people that make others confide in them the moment they meet. This is because they might appear a little bit cold or standoffish, simply because they keep a lot of their thoughts and emotions to themselves. They do not really express things openly, and so this might make it so people feel uneasy confiding in them especially initially.
The ranking is weighted lowly as the Perfectionist may become hell-bent on digging up the dirt if their trust has been broken.
They are the master researchers who only trust themselves.
This may unearth the sexual event that you had at age fifteen with your teacher.
This exposure may not be exactly what you want on the Twittersphere if you are now a justice of some court.
16 Enhancer INTJ
3
Secretly thinks everyone else is incompetent.
Maybe not everyone and maybe not entirely incompetent, but they secretly believe that most people are at least a little less competent than they are. They have trouble placing their trust in others because they cannot see how anyone else could come up with a plan for the future that is better than the one they figured out. They would prefer to just go it alone and trust others only with what is only absolutely needed.
Can appear a bit stern and standoffish to newcomers and so they might not appear like being someone newcomers can open up to. This does not mean people do not trust them to be reliable; they simply might not feel like they can share their feelings and fears with the Enhancer. There can sometimes be a fear that they might be cold or that they just do not want to listen to what people have to say. For the people close to them they are seen as trustworthy and reliable friends and companions, but first impressions might make them a bit intimidating.
The most difficult pattern to know as they are so self-sufficient.
Errs on the side that everyone is incompetent until they prove otherwise. Less likely to trust others as they become wiser to the idiots who have betrayed their trust in the past or betrayed the trust of others (as crooks) e.g. Joh Bjelke-Petersen. But they are very well placed at number three, where only the best players bat.
