If you have ever observed behaviour regarding rules, this may be the way to pick another person's pattern.

Here is a stupid rule (at the Portuguese Grand Prix): Patrons are not to be naked or shirtless while at the event.
Effect: You can arrive at the event in that designated state of undress.

Conducted and composed by Rule Maker Stratton Oakmont™ - Last Update May 4, 2021

Stratton Oakmont™ had one remarkable downfall which was caused by perennial industry traits: hubris and competition.
What is his behaviour pattern?

-
 

1. Director - ESTJ

Shared Stereotype: Rule Maniac.

Attitude towards the rules: "I have written down the rules and made copies for everyone. I am the fcuking rules."

Discussion: The Director is not a natural rule breaker as believe in structure. They strive to do what is right and work hard to get the job done. They care about taking care of their loved ones and are very focussed people. They do not believe in simply breaking rules for the fun of it; instead they want to follow what is right. They understand that rules are in place in order to make society more efficient, but when they do not do this the Director can have their doubts. In those situations they might consider bending the rules, especially if they can get away with it.

E. Hunter™ comments: The Director will quickly gain the reputation of a very good operator who is universally loathed by doing everything their way. Break the rules and you will be on the end of communication that is graciously served with about 5 litres of Tabasco Sauce.

2. Developer - ENTJ

Shared Stereotype: Thrives off the misery of others.

Attitude towards the rules: "I make the rules."

Discussion: The Developer does not feel a need to constantly break rules, especially not ones that makes sense to them. It is more about taking the time to observe a situation and figure out what choices to make. The Developer is not incapable of bending the rules, especially when it seems like the most logical choice for them. They work hard to accomplish their goals and strive for efficiency in their actions. For them sometimes taking a step back is necessary, but sometimes bending the rules to suit them is what they feel they need to do.

E. Hunter™ comments: The Developer has a pervasive pattern of grandiosity need for admiration and a lack of empathy. You will think you are dealing with a bully and you actually are. They also have fiery tempers and can use their quick wits and cold hard logic as a weapon to humiliate and silence their opponents.

3. Results - ESTP

Shared Stereotype: Just leave them be.

Attitude towards the rules: "Watch me break the rules! Rules are made to be broken."

Discussion: The Results is definitely capable of bending rules and maybe even breaking them if need be. They do not like being forced to follow some pointless rules, especially ones that they find completely illogical. They live in the present moment and enjoy doing what feels right for them. They sometimes take risks if they believe it will provide them with what they desire. This sometimes means having to bend the rules the way they wish.

E. Hunter™ comments: The Results will take risks and break rules if the objective can be achieved with the fine less than the profit derived. Just look at Visy and Amcor and Mr. Richard Pratt.

4. Inspirational - ENTP

Shared Stereotype: Thrives off the misery of others.

Attitude towards the rules: "I have discovered that these rules are not actually fulfilling their purpose; allow me to explain why and watch me prove them wrong."

Discussion: The Inspirational is not afraid of bending the rules or even breaking them when the situation calls for it. They are logical people but at the same time they enjoy exploring new things and taking calculated risks. Sometimes bending the rules is necessary in order to accomplish what matters to them. They do not like being restrained or told they cannot do something and so their defiant nature can cause them to more than bend the rules; sometimes they want to break them entirely.

E. Hunter™ comments: The Inspirational will debate any issue. They are Machiavellian - cunning and duplicitous. "That was not my understanding of the rules".

-
 

5. Persuader - ENFJ

Shared Stereotype: Wears their heart on their sleeve.

Attitude towards the rules: "Rules are great. They help make us better people. I manipulate you not to break the rules, for your own good, but I bend and break them for my purposes."

Discussion: The Persuader is definitely not afraid of bending the rules, or even breaking them if need be. In most situations, they try to avoid getting into trouble or breaking rules that seem to be in place for good reason. They can certainly bend the rules if it seems like the right choice to make, especially if it will help their loved ones in some way. They do whatever they can to take care of those around them and want to provide for them as best they can. Sometimes making the most moral decision means bending the rules in order to make things right.

E. Hunter™ comments: The Persuader gives a surface appearance of respecting the rules but it is recommended to assess the Persuader's carefulness and diligence when handling the truth on the treatment of rules. Their way is always the best way and anyone who disregards their 'friendly' advice is treated with passive-aggressive bullying. Masters of cancelling others in the woke environment.

6. Appraiser - ESFJ

Shared Stereotype: Rule Maniac.

Attitude towards the rules: "I have bent over backwards to fulfill all the rules. Let me tell you why you had better obey them."

Discussion: The Appraiser is not usually a rule breaker, but they might be okay with bending them once in a while. They care about their loved ones and do whatever they can to provide for them. They are compassionate people who seek to take care of the people in their lives and work hard to do so. They do not like breaking rules if they can avoid it, but they will bend them if they need to in order to take care of the people in their lives. While following rules seems more comfortable for them, they prioritize the needs of the people in their lives.

E. Hunter™ comments: The Appraiser is pretty good with rules but will bend them particularly when dealing with those close to them.

-
 

7. Promoter - ENFP

Shared Stereotype: Wears their heart on their sleeve.

Attitude towards the rules: "Oops. I did not realise that there were rules and I seem to have accidentally broken them. I think I am too sweet to be punished."

Discussion: The Promoter is not a natural rule follower and often prefers to bend the rules when they can get away with it. For them it is about following their own path and doing what feels right for them deep down. They have strong inner morals and they believe in following them down the path that is true and good. While they believe in doing the right thing they are inconsistent by often bending or even breaking the rules. Rules are often made to be broken, especially if those rules hold them back from doing what is important to them.

E. Hunter™ comments: The Promoter is a rule breaker. Never rely on a Promoter. This is a common theme on this site. Masters of cancelling others in the woke environment especially when they have been found out by the facts of the matter.

8. Counselor - ESFP

Shared Stereotype: Just leave them be.

Attitude towards the rules: "Is there a fine for breaking the rules? I will just pay that. I break rules for fun."

Discussion: The Counselor is not at all afraid of bending the rules, sometimes even breaking them. They have a hard time really focussing on the rules, since they live so much in the present moment. They seek out the things that fulfill them and bring them a sense of happiness. They do not like doing things that are boring to them and they certainly do not enjoy feeling restrained. Sometimes rules leave them feeling like they are being controlled and so they feel the need to bend or break them.

E. Hunter™ comments: The Counselor is difficult to manage. Just how many Counselors have you had to follow up on with getting their expense claims, or BAS statements, in on time. The rule breaker who cannot be trusted on such matters.

-
 

9. Specialist - ISFP

Shared Stereotype: Just leave them be.

Attitude towards the rules: "What rules? It is okay because I do not think that anyone has noticed."

Discussion: The Specialist is not afraid of bending the rules a little bit; sometimes they even enjoy this. They live in the present moment and seek out the things that bring them a sense of joy or fulfillment. Sometimes rules just are not what they believe in following, so sometimes they need to bend or even break them. They are often good at bending rules in order to get what they want and seek out the things that mean the most to them.

E. Hunter™ comments: Anything that stands in the way of their fierce independence — such as traditions, social conventions or rules stifles the Specialist. As a result, they may struggle to fit into academic institutions or a corporate workplace.

10. Investigator - INFJ

Shared Stereotype: Wears their heart on their sleeve.

Attitude towards the rules: "These rules are not benefiting me. I am rebelling and making up my own rules or I am changing them."

Discussion: The Investigator can be seen as polite and moral but that does not mean they are incapable of bending the rules. They see most things in a bit of a grey area, rather than just a clear black and white. They do not like doing anything that feels wrong to them. Sometimes they believe in bending the rules a bit if it seems like the right choice. For them it is important to consider their loved ones and they realize that some rules just are not right and should be a bent a bit, maybe even broken in the right circumstances.

E. Hunter™ comments: Even if they have plenty of friends they never feel as if they truly fit in. Can be very persuasive if their determination is focussed. Masters of the door slam.

-
 

11. Agent - INFP

Shared Stereotype: Wears their heart on their sleeve.

Attitude towards the rules: "I am blissfully unaware that there are any rules. The rules are so unfair."

Discussion: The Agent tries to follow their own inner morals much more than following the rules of someone else. While they might not intend to bend the rules, they will if it means doing the right thing. They are more focussed on following their hearts and doing what they know to be good. Their inner morals guide their decisions most of the time and so sometimes that does mean having to bend a few rules. When it seems like the rules put in place are asking them to do something that is wrong, then they will not want to follow them.

E. Hunter™ comments: Consistent with living in La La Land but will follow rules if the end result is something in which they believe. Does not like mundane tasks that rules sometimes bring.

-
 

12. Achiever - ISTP

Shared Stereotype: Just leave them be.

Attitude towards the rules: "I ignore the rules. These rules are important for others. If I feel like it, I might just follow along."

Discussion: The Achiever is definitely capable of bending the rules or even breaking them if they need to as they consider that rules are sometimes a bit unnecessary. They are not afraid of taking risks and will do whatever they feel they need to in the present moment. They can understand that some rules are in place in order to maintain a sense of structure but they can certainly bend them if they need to.

E. Hunter™ comments: They have a long fuse and they have a shocking temper. Freedom and autonomy is important. Can be stilfed by inflexible schedules, unnecessary bureaucracy, red tape or rules. Because of this, they may have always struggled to fit in at school or in corporate settings.

-
 

13. Practitioner - ISFJ

Shared Stereotype: Rule Maniac.

Attitude towards the rules: "You are breaking the rules. These rules suck but I will go along with them."

Discussion: The Practitioner is practical people who believes in following the rules as best they can. They do not like intentionally breaking the rules just for the fun of it. Most of the time they work hard to get things done and do what they believe is right for the sake of the people they love. They can become uneasy with rule breaking behaviour since they often feel it can get them into trouble. They want to do what is right for their loved ones and will only seek to bend the rules if it seems like the best move for them.

E. Hunter™ comments: The Practitioner cannot handle conflict but is a detail hound.

-
 

14. Objective Thinker - ISTJ

Shared Stereotype: Rule Maniac.

Attitude towards the rules: "I have completed everything according to the rules. Obey the rules; please do not resist."

Discussion: The Objective Thinker is not a rule breaker and so bending them is not usually something they are fans of either. They prefer to do what is right and keep focussing on getting the job done. They value efficiency and so they work hard to accomplish their goals and get things right the first time. They do believe in taking care of their loved ones but they often prefer to do this without having to break the rules. They are capable of bending certain rules if they must, but they try to avoid it when they can.

E. Hunter™ comments: The Objective Thinker is known to follow established rules even if it comes at a cost to them. If they make a mistake, they will be honest and fess up to it. To do anything less would be a stain on their reputation. Career-wise are drawn to organizations that uphold rules, traditions and standards. Rules get a lot of smack these days and they understand that they need to change sometimes. But they also know that rules and structure lead to productivity and consistency — which ultimately makes life better for everyone. Chaos, on the other hand, means missed deadlines and unforeseen obstacles.

15. Perfectionist - INTP

Shared Stereotype: Thrives off the misery of others.

Attitude towards the rules: "I question the rules. I have figured out a way to bend each and every one."

Discussion: The Perfectionist is not a natural rule follower since the the ideas of most rules can seem a bit foolish for them. They follow what makes the most logical sense, instead of what rules are set out in front of them. They are more than capable of bending the rules, especially if it seems like the most logical and intelligent thing to do. They do not like having to follow rules that will hold them back and so sometimes they need to find ways to bend those rules or work around them in some way.

E. Hunter™ comments: The Perfectionist is a brick without a wall and non-conformity is not a statement. It is just a natural state. They have little regard for rules or social norms and they never quite fit in at school or at work.

-
 

16. Enhancer - INTJ

Shared Stereotype: Thrives off the misery of others.

Attitude towards the rules: "I criticise the rules. However, I have discovered all the inconsistencies within the rules and therefore I consider them to be null and void."

Discussion: The Enhancer often prefers to follow the rules and sometimes only the ones that they deem logical and sensible. Not many pass this test. They do not want to simply break rules just for the sake of doing it, especially if it seems like that action could get them into trouble. They d not believe in taking unnecessary risks but that does not mean they will not bend the rules to suit them. If it is the right choice for them, the Enhancer will find a way to bend the rules to get what they want and go through it unscathed.

E. Hunter™ comments: If you want to give away free soft drinks to your customers on a hot day and the boss is onto the fact that the Gross profit will unambiguously fall, the Enhancer will give away the drinks and maintain the Gross Profit and the auditors will never find out or be told how this simple rule can be circumvented. The Enhancer has never accomplished enough.
