Here are all sixteen patterns, all selfish so you will be here as is the case with all types of behaviour described on this site and on countless other sites on the Internet.

Conducted and composed by Semi selfish bastard Elizabeth Hunter™ - Last Update May 24, 2023


1. Can it be the Director - ESTJ?

The Director is the Border Collie

Ranking and key selfish bastard factor: 6/16. Possessor of a selfish streak.

Commentary: As mentioned on other pages, the Director likes to be in control and often comes across as bossy and overbearing. They have the 'my way or the highway' ethos and are impatient with people who do not follow their lead. They often have very strong opinions and are unafraid to take charge and make decisions quickly without first consulting others. This can be off-putting to those around them as they can appear overly domineering and lacking in empathy. However, they are also very loyal and are willing to work hard and make sure that tasks get done efficiently, even if they come off as bossy in the process. They are also fiercely protective of their family and friends and will do whatever they can to look out for them. While they may often be seen as selfish, their loyalty and dedication actually ultimately benefits those who are closest to them.

E. Hunter™ experience: This seems to correlate with my observations. They have turned micromanaging into an art form.


2. Can it be the Developer - ENTJ?

The Developer is the German Shepherd

Ranking and key selfish bastard factor: 2/16. Possessor of a selfish streak.

Commentary: They are incredibly ambitious and goal-oriented people who have a strong sense of independence. They like to be in control and can become easily frustrated when they do not get the results they want or when it appears someone is not pulling their weight. This can make them seem very self-centered, but this is not always the case. In some cases, they can be very generous and self-sacrificing when it comes to accomplishing their goals or helping and motivating others. It is just that they are incredibly future-oriented and get tunnel vision when it comes to their ambitions and goals.

E. Hunter™ experience: They really should be a tie for the most selfish bastard. They use people and then chuck them out.


3. Can it be the Results - ESTP?

The Results is the Jack Russell Terrier

Ranking and key selfish bastard factor: 3/16. Do not like being tied down by rules or conventions.

Commentary: They are highly energetic, ambitious and independent. They thrive on taking risks and pushing boundaries as well as having a certain degree of freedom in their lives. This can often make them come across as selfish, as they often prioritize their own needs and goals above those of others. They may also be quite controlling when it comes to getting things done their way, which can sometimes make them seem dismissive or uncaring towards the feelings of others. Despite this, they can be incredibly generous and enthusiastic people who are always looking for new ways to challenge themselves and those around them.

E. Hunter™ experience: Yes, the selfish daredevil.


4. Can it be the Inspirational - ENTP?

The Inspirational is the Bull Terrier

Ranking and key selfish bastard factor: 1/16. Do not possess a heart.

Commentary: The Inspirational can be highly creative and innovative. They thrive on taking risks and pushing boundaries and are not afraid to put themselves first when it comes to pursuing their goals. They are often independent thinkers who prioritize the intellectual stimulation of debate far above the feelings of others. They love to play devil’s advocate and often challenge the status quo, making them great problem solvers. They can often appear aloof and disinterested. Unless their ideas are challenged or their intellect is questioned, they can be dismissive and disinterested. However, even if they do come across as selfish, they often have good intentions and are simply trying to get the most out of themselves and other people. But it is for their own gain.

E. Hunter™ experience: They are ranked as the ultimate and annoying selfish bastard. No contest from my experience. They are the worst losers and are cheaters as well.


5. Can it be the Persuader - ENFJ?

The Persuader is the Boxer

Ranking and key selfish bastard factor: 12/16. Perceived as one of the most selfless.

Commentary: They are incredibly giving of their time and energy, constantly looking for ways to help others. They are passionate and driven always striving to make a positive impact on the world. They have a deep connection with their emotions, taking into account how their decisions might affect those around them. They can be too focussed on others at times, neglecting their own needs in order to make sure everyone else is taken care of. Although this may seem like a selfless act, it can be detrimental in the long run. They need to take time for themselves as well so that they do not become overwhelmed and exhausted.

E. Hunter™ experience: At last something to attempt to offset their manipulating and interfering modus operandi.


6. Can it be the Appraiser - ESFJ

The Appraiser is the Great Dane

Ranking and key selfish bastard factor: 15/16. Ultimate people pleaser.

Commentary: They are extremely warm and caring people who put the needs of others above their own. They are very social and enjoy being around people. They strive to make everyone feel comfortable and appreciated. As such, they often downplay their own needs in order to ensure that everybody else is taken care of first. While this can be a wonderful trait, it can also make them come off as overly self-sacrificing at times. They are usually not very good at saying no and can be prone to taking on too much work or responsibility. As a result, they may end up feeling overwhelmed and have others take advantage if they do not set boundaries for themselves.

E. Hunter™ experience: This pattern is liked by most and lack of selfishness is a part of this.


7. Can it be the Promoter - ENFP?

The Promoter is the Golden Retriever

Ranking and key selfish bastard factor: 11/16. Not perceived as particularly selfish.

Commentary: They are typically very giving but they have their moments. They have a great capacity for understanding others’ feelings, taking care of those around them and taking the other person's perspectives into account when making decisions.

Since they love taking some risks, they can be quite independent and driven by their own desires rather than the opinions of others. They can be so focussed on achieving their goals that they do not take into account how their actions might affect those around them. This can appear selfish to some people, but it is actually just a sign of their strong sense of self and passion for life.

E. Hunter™ experience: They are selfish in the sense that they never finish any fcuking thing.

Commentary: These are the outgoing and fun-loving people who love to be the life of the party and always have something exciting planned.

However, they can also be highly giving and passionate when it comes to looking out for the people they care about.

Commentary: They are highly creative individuals who prioritize their own passions and interests above all else.

They tend to live in the present moment and hence do not always think about the future. They can get wrapped up in their own little world and emotions and disregard the feelings or needs of others. However, underneath this selfish exterior lies a generous heart that is always looking for ways to help and provide for those they care about. They may not be known as the most selfless personalities, but their capacity for compassion and understanding should never be underestimated.

This occurs when their strong ideals conflict with those of others. They can become very insistent on getting what they want.

Their love of daydreaming can become a distraction and cause them to overlook the needs of those around them. Despite this selfish streak, they have a lot of love and care to give to those they trust and are usually very understanding when it comes to relationships. They just need time and space to nurture their own ideas and passions first.

E. Hunter™ experience: They are generally decent over there in La La Land.

Commentary: They are independent, practical people who have their own sense of logic and like to come up with creative solutions to problems. They can often appear aloof or uncaring since they do not usually express emotions openly and prefer focussing on the task rather than paying attention to other people’s feelings. Given their practical and straightforward nature, they can sometimes come across as selfish as they do not always take into account the needs of those around them. However, they are usually honest and loyal individuals who will do whatever it takes to get a job done. They may not be known for their selflessness, but they have a lot of potential when it comes to looking out for their loved ones..

Loyal and dependant, they who prefer harmony over conflict and will go out of their way to make sure everyone is happy. They are also incredibly generous with their time and energy, which makes them a great friend to have. So even though they may not be the most outspoken personalities, they still care deeply about those around them and always put others first.

Commentary: They often come across as cold and aloof with no social skills but this is usually due to their deep introspection and tendency to intellectualize their feelings. They are highly independent thinkers who like to analyze everything before making a decision or taking action. As such, they can be indifferent toward other people’s opinions or needs and prioritize their own ideas first. This can come off as selfishness, but they usually just want to make sure they have thought through things properly before taking any action. They base their decisions on logic and facts so they will not be swayed by the emotions or feelings of others.

E. Hunter™ experience: The top 4 ranking is well deserved. Their poor finishing record contributes.


16. Can it be the Enhancer - INTJ?

The Enhancer is a Lone Wolf

Ranking and key selfish bastard factor: 5/16. Possessor of a bit of selfish streak.

Commentary: The selfish streak is because they are independent thinkers who rely on their own intuition rather than that of others. They prioritize logic over emotion when making decisions, which can lead them to be totally dismissive of others’ feelings. They can also be controlling and try to put their own ideas into action, even if it means disregarding the wishes of others. However, they are usually just trying to make sure that everyone is getting the best possible outcome in any situation. They can often be generous with their time and resources when they believe something or someone when investing is worthwhile.

E. Hunter™ experience: I would have rated this pattern as being more selfish than number 5 due to their tendency to act independently and only requiring around 5 friends. Fcuk everyone else, especially idiots!
