E. Hunter Active Values™ Conflict or Truce? Indifferent Propensity™ E. Hunter™ Comments
1 - Director - ESTJ Is perhaps the most outcome-driven of all patterns. They want to understand the objective, what their resources are that they can draw on and with whom they will work with to achieve the objectives.
Can rise to high positions in organizations because of their ability to achieve outcomes within the framework of organizational constraints — they deliver ahead of time and under budget.
They can have conflict with the Feeling (F) patterns because they tend to believe that outcomes are more important than individuals.
They may have difficulty finding innovative solutions that a Developer or Inspirational might find, or implementing them, preferring time test ways of doing things.
The Director is likely to frustrate forward facing types such as the Persuader and the Promoter because the big picture or overall view is often not important to those two patterns.
Often seem as indifferent, especially when they are focussed on something. They are hardworking people who value efficiency above most other things. They are not the most emotionally expressive people, which causes them to appear indifferent to others. Deep down they care very much for their loved ones, they just do not show this with words or emotions and do much better expressing things in more practical ways. Love it. Director v. Persuader and Promoter. Happens all the time. 'That Boss' - generally loathed.
2 - Developer - ENTJ The Developer always leads but are rarely leaders in the sense of popular political leaders, loved by the masses. They have a natural ability at strategy. They always attempt to lead groups through formal or informal authority. They see the end objective as more important than anything else. Often chosen when outcomes are critical, people who want outcomes ally with them. Can definitely appear indifferent, especially if they are caught up in their own thoughts. When they are focussed on getting things done, they become less interested in being social and friendly. They are certainly capable of being expressive and outgoing people, it entirely depends on their mood. When they are working on something important, they will appear extremely indifferent to others. They are logical and intelligent people, who can be a bit distant when it comes to expressing their emotions to others, which makes them seem aloof. Frequently clash with almost everyone in the organization. Bully.
3 - Results - ESTP They value reaching their destination with superior interpersonal skills through taking advantage of fluid options. To use military lingo, they have a natural ability to act according to the situation on the ground — they move effectively and decisively in the moment. They have few natural enemies in organization. They are winsome and have the ability to gauge the crowd. They are excellent communicators and often find themselves in the role of a spokesperson. They look for the shortest line between two points and dislike complicating anything that could be easy. They have conflict with those more attracted to complexity such as the Enhancer, Perfectionist, Developer and Persuader. They grow impatient with long-term strategy or complex position papers. Definitely appears indifferent to others, especially when they are focussed on something. They just are not the most emotionally expressive people, which can cause them to seem aloof. When they are around someone they truly care for, they can often be more open and expressive about their feelings. They still will not be extremely emotional, but they are capable of making it clear that they are not indifferent to that person. The Emergency co-ordinator. Risk taker.
4 - Inspirational - ENTP They value technical ability, are persuasive, as well as possessing an ability to seize strategic opportunities. They are one of the least conflict averse types. They use their extroverted iNtuition to size up situations and are usually confident of their course of action. They excel in organizations and as entrepreneurs. They dazzle many while at the same time confuse many others who get mental whiplash watching their rapid changes in direction. Their ability to communicate and solve issues is impressive. They can and do clash with most types who want to follow a steady course, as opposed to in-the-moment decisions and direction changes. Their confidence is admired and often justified, yet they clash when they come over as arrogant and all-knowing. They are all about skills, expertise and they have a very advanced ability to communicate. Can seem both indifferent and friendly, depending entirely upon their current mood. Two faced, even. When they are caught up in their own thoughts, they will often seem completely aloof to others. They are not the most emotionally expressive people, which can cause them to appear indifferent even to their loved ones. Over time they may be capable of connecting with their emotions better and will find ways to express their feelings to the people they deem worthy of seeing them. They are logical people who enjoy exploring possibilities in life. The fact that their minds are so active often causes them to appear indifferent. Welcome to clashing especially if you are reluctant to change. Debater. Mass debater if more than one of them.

5 - Persuader - ENFJ The groupie - most attuned to people and groups. As moderators, facilitators and trainers, they possess a finely tuned ‘sixth sense’ of the motivations and concerns of a group. Possess the best skills to interrelate both to individuals and groups. People most often feel that the Persuader understands them at a deep level and it is often true that they have an amazing ability to understand others.
They can be frustrating to the Developer, Enhancer, Inspirational, Perfectionist, Director, Objective Thinker, Appraiser and Practitioner in situations of conflict because not only are they conflict averse, they often believe that conflict in and of itself is inappropriate and ineffective. When in charge, they can have a great sense of the appropriateness of their role and status and may find it difficult to share the limelight and decision making with others. If everyone likes them, then they must be correct, which is bulltish.
Are not usually seen as indifferent people, since they are warm and outgoing. They are often very friendly, even to complete strangers. They simply enjoy being able to connect with others and love making new friends. They are social people, who strive to care for their loved ones as best they can. Since they are so sociable and warm to others, they are rarely seen as indifferent. Most people automatically like them and feel as though they are liked in return. They just are not the type of people to alienate others and dislike hurting people’s feelings. Have half the patterns frustrated before they even start. Interferer.
6 - Appraiser - ESFJ Possess the remarkable ability to manage and guide teams. They are highly organized and see disorganization as a personal failure, although they are often patient and are skilled at picking up the pieces for things that did not get done. Have some of the best interpersonal skills of all patterns, are conflict averse and most always find themselves skillfully and diplomatically managing the needs of groups. Their abilities can become their disabilities in that they may place a critical problem on hold because they do not feel they have the authority to find unauthorized solutions. They often feel that their role is to work within a defined framework with an assigned set of duties and may not feel that understanding how the larger organization works is important. Rarely seem indifferent to others, since they are warm and outgoing people. They do not want to upset anyone and prefer to be friendly and social. They are not always willing to express their deepest emotions to people, but they are capable of being expressive enough to show that they care. They are certainly not aloof, especially when it comes to the people they love the most. They do not enjoy being seen as indifferent and want it to be clear that they care. The Sports Coach.
7 - Promoter - ENFP They value their own personal performance though charm, charisma and their ability to gain followership. They attempt to lead organizations through cycles of change by engaging the people around them by their own personal charm, helping organizations succeed. Usually find themselves at the heart of most organizations. They are often in Human Relations departments (where they belong) and have the ear of senior executive teams. They can be seen leading the latest organizational initiative. They have an affinity with their own ideas and will defend the ideas that they have generated. They often have difficulty staying engaged in projects through completion, often changing initiatives or jobs. They are most successful at getting organizations to see a vision and to engage in change management during the early stages. Very outgoing and friendly people who try to be social when they are in public. They are often viewed as kind and warm, especially when they are making an effort. They have a charisma and charm which draws people to their present most of the time. In most cases they appear friendly and kind and do not seem aloof to others. In some situations, they will appear a bit indifferent in romantic situations, which can cause people to become confused by them. While they are friendly, they sometimes enjoy a bit of push and pull when it comes to the dating scene. They do not want to make their feelings completely obvious, sometimes for fear of getting hurt. The worst finisher and difficult to manage.
8 - Counselor - ESFP They value social interaction between people. They focus on getting things done through teams. They are generally 'can do' and upbeat and contribute positive energy to a team. Often clash with patterns who insist on a win/lose style of leadership. They may resist roles that are conflictive. They are often value gaining cooperation as friends and are most often individual contributors. They are diplomatic, fun-loving, and supportive of people in their organizations. Are caring and friendly people and this often shows outwardly. They are very expressive when it comes to their feelings and dislike having to hold back. They are rarely seen as indifferent to others and would have a hard time hiding their emotions in any situation. Their affectionate and warm personalities makes it rather easy for them to connect with others. They are friendly people who would not want to hurt someone’s feelings by seeming aloof. The Party Animal.
↓ Disc Pattern Likeableness → Performance and method Conflict or Truce? Indifferent Propensity™ E. Hunter™ Comments
9 - Specialist - ISFP Value an internal set of principles and values that are more important to them than the external day-to-day world. Tend to be individual contributors and rarely have organizational conflict. They are generally well-liked and have a defined role that they accomplish well. Are caring and friendly people who rarely appear indifferent. They can seem a bit shy and reserved at times, especially if they are caught up in their own thoughts and feelings. Even if they seem as if they are keeping to themselves, there is something kind about their demeanor which causes them not to appear aloof. They are warm and affectionate people who enjoy being able to connect with others. They hate change, particularly with short notice.
10 - Investigator - INFJ They value future vision of what a better world can be – perhaps the most visionary of all patterns. They seek meaning in human relationships. They do not often find themselves in conflict with other types and avoid interactive teams. They are often physicians, clergy or professors and are able to act independently.
Conflict may center around causes rather than committees, which they will seek to avoid.
Are complex people which causes them to appear indifferent at different times. When they are distracted or wrapped up in their own thoughts, they can definitely appear indifferent to others. They likely are not trying to appear this way; they are simply caught up in their inner minds and are not really present in the moment. They can also appear indifferent around people they dislike, since they do not want to be insincere but they also do not want to hurt their feelings. When they are around people they care for, they will be the opposite of indifferent to them and will light up in their presence. Not a good team player. Tries to manage other people's emotions.
11 - Agent - INFP They value their insights about people and share their insights with only the people they trust. They value personal accomplishments that help others. Are generally very talented people in organizations and can excel in technology and design. They have outstanding technical and interpersonal skills. Because they generally have strong boundaries and personal definitions that they do not articulate to others, they often confuse the J (judging) patterns who do not understand how they want to be engaged. Since they have strong inner expectations, they can be desperately unhappy or offended and no one knows why. Once they disconnect from people and situations, they are difficult to reconnect with. There is no more insightful and able person if they are fully engaged in what they are supposed to be doing. Can sometimes appear indifferent, especially if they are distracted by their own thoughts. They are generally warm people though and have a kind look to them. While they do not want to be viewed as mean, they can become caught up in their own inner world. When they are wrapped up in their active imagination, they can seem a bit disinterested in others and their presence. They will seem more distracted than aloof though since they are often expressive people. They are in La La Land.
12 - Achiever - ISTP They value observation, comradery and traditional values. They are natural observers. When they see a problem in their general surroundings, they have already been observing it and step forward to solve it. Possess few natural enemies among other patterns in organizations. They are normally conflict averse, socially skilled and have an easy wit. Since their work style is reactive in the best sense of the word, they are natural troubleshooters and problem solvers. They run into problems with J patterns (judging) who require advanced planning. They do not do well in strategy meetings or long term planning roles and may become withdrawn in most types of long range planning meetings.
They do not react well to hierarchies or chains of command.
Are introverted and analytical people, which often causes them to appear very aloof. They are so focussed on their own inner thoughts and are not expressive about their emotions. They simply are not great at focussing on their feelings or the feelings of others people. Their lack of emotional expression causes them to seem very indifferent to others. They are simply more focussed on problem solving and do enjoy having plenty of time on their own. They will fix anything and have the worst temper.
↓ Disc Pattern Likeableness → Performance and method Conflict or Truce? Indifferent Propensity™ E. Hunter™ Comments
13 - Practitioner - ISFJ Values social harmony within communities and in organizations with a personal competence as close to perfection as possible. Are extremely effective in social interactions, leading groups to reach harmony and consensus. They may clash with the Director, Developer and Inspirational who place outcome above feelings and relationships. They are not apt to cut corners on rules and procedures and may clash with those patterns types who bend rules to get outcomes.
The Enhancer and Perfectionist may consider the Practitioner to be obstructionist in gaining outcomes.
Are warm and compassionate people, which makes them appear much less aloof than some other types. They do not enjoy being indifferent since they realize this demeanor can often hurt others feelings. They are loving people and want it to be very clear that they care for others. They do have moments where they are caught up in their own thoughts and, in those moments, they might appear a bit more aloof. For the most part though, they are warm and affectionate people and it shows. Hopeless leader who avoids conflict at any cost.
14 - Objective Thinker - ISTJ Values past experience. They value data and past experience to chart direction for the future. They value authority and chain of command. They believe in process and standard operating procedures. They are the 'gate keepers' of organizations. Past Performance indicates future success. Traditions are to be respected and rules are to be obeyed. Tends to clash with N patterns (intuitives), who are future oriented and often unimpressed with past data. These are the Investigator, Enhancer, Agent, Perfectionist Persuader, Inspirational, Promoter and Developer. All these may see the Objective Thinker as obstructionist to progress. Can definitely seem indifferent to others, especially if they are focussed on something. When they are trying to get their work done, they will be very focussed on being efficient. They are not emotionally expressive people, even though they care deeply for their loved ones. Since they do not openly express their emotions, this can cause them to appear indifferent to others. This is truly just how they seem on the outside, since they really are caring people. Good project managers but half the patterns see them as married to the rules / the past.
15 - Perfectionist - INTP Values seeing important details missed by others and 'getting to the bottom of things'. Their mental tendency is to go to the heart of things to examine all underlying detail. They are able to drill down into projects, issues and situations to find those elements that do not line up with the overall plan. They can be excellent educators and writers.
They can run foul with outcome oriented patterns such as the Director and the Developer and others such as the Enhancer that conflict with the Perfectionist when they feel that they want to call back the train after it has left the station. They never feel that it is too late to have that post-mortem meeting, or to begin at ground zero again.
Appear very indifferent, even to the people they care for the most. This aloof attitude is simply part of their personality and is how they often appear to others. They are not emotionally expressive people and often keep their feelings bottled up inside. When they feel as if they are being expressive and emotional, they are often seen as the opposite to others. Even when they do not want to seem aloof, it is often exactly how they appear outwardly. They can have an ocean of feelings inside but, on the outside, they will likely seem indifferent. Absent minded professor who always has one more item to include.
16 - Enhancer - INTJ Values intellect. One of the brainiest of types, they find and use abstract models to explain physical reality. They do not so much create concepts, but apply them. They look for simple and elegant models and then apply them. They gather great backing in an organization because of their intellectual ability to grasp complicated issues and to suggest elegant solutions. They tend to be the 'ivory tower' pattern. They may come into conflict with action types such as the Director, Results, Appraiser and Counselor who value action over intellect. The Enhancer's interest is infinite, but not their attention span and they may become suddenly disinterested in a project or initiative. Definitely appears indifferent to others which in some cases is simply because they are. They are often so caught up in their own thoughts that they seem aloof and completely disinterested in others. They have so much going on inside of their minds and often prefer being on their own so that they can analyze information. They rarely find themselves all that interested in other people so, in many (all?) cases, they truly are indifferent to them. This does not mean that they are not caring people; they just can be rather picky when it comes to the people they trust and let into their hearts and lives. The cunning strategist who cannot tolerate idiots. Can be very good at getting things done. The lone wolf.

It is like the Non-Icky form of manipulation, while lying about emotions would be the Icky form (which is why the Persuader is The Devil). The Enhancer moves in through life from being naive as a youngster to trusting nothing and no one without proof."

Machiavellian - Who is most likely?

The most likely are the Rationals - the Enhancer, Developer, Inspirational and Perfectionist.

General Remarks:

To be Machiavellian you probably believe and act like the ends justify the means. This is not an uncommon sentiment among Rationals. Seen as unsympathetic and cold is also quite common. Rationals in general are the type that can best understand power and leverage it, judging rationals especially = Enhancer and Developer.
Both seek to have control of their lives and are pretty good at getting it simply because they consciously use methods others would find distasteful. But their actions serve a purpose. The Enhancer cares very much about how vulnerable they are, maybe they are more aware of their deficiencies and seek to strengthen, eliminate or hide those vulnerabilities. The chief vulnerability is emotion.
Rationals seek to control their emotions and the Enhancer and the Investigator types tend to be more self disciplined than others The Investigator seems to be Machiavellian when taking revenge.
Nothing conveys anger like silence, paired with a practiced Enhancer death stare, only the stupid would test a person at that point. They also tend to be a vindictive lot - satisfied just plotting revenge, quite detailed as well and leave true justice in the hands of a higher authority. They are also probably aware that honesty can be very deceptive if used properly. Some may well think that lies and manipulation are the 'greatest things ever' but the Enhancer is not above it if other means fail to attain the desired outcomes, what ever outcomes those might be. If you think underhanded methods are the only way to get what you want you might just have a very debased morality. This is the last resort after less diplomatic means have failed, which is fairly rare (depending on skill and the other persons selfishness). e.g. Augustus Caesar, Vladimir Putin.

Characteristics of Machiavellian Behaviour:

1. Cynical and distrusting.

Machiavellians believe everyone is untrustworthy. They are suspicious by nature. They think the world is a game, made of up winners and losers. You play the game to win and if someone gets crushed along the way that is just how it works. They assume everyone is doing the same as they are. So if they do not get you first, they will be the loser. [Especially Enhancer].

2. There are liars, then there are Machiavellian liars.

We all tell lies. Little white lies that do not offend our friends. We make excuses for why we cannot attend a colleague’s wedding or we say that our partner looks great in that dress. But Machiavellian lies are on a different level. More to the point, they are good at lying. Machiavellian personalities rarely tell the truth. They will tell the sort of lies that get you into trouble and put them in a favourable light. "If indeed I do sometimes tell the truth, I hide it behind so many lies that it is hard to find." - Machiavelli. [Especially Developer].

3. They prefer to cut corners, rather than put in the hard work.

If this means exploiting others, then so be it. They will use all their powers of persuasion and flattery to get you to do the majority of the work. But you will not get the recognition. They have already gone to the boss and signed off with their name. They think that anyone who does put in a hard day’s work is a sucker and deserves to be used. [Especially Perfectionist].

4. Money, power, and status are the most important.

The Machiavellian personality values money over family, power over people and status over morality. It is easy to spot this person. They will be the family member insisting on discussing the split of inheritance at your parent’s funeral. Or the ex-partner bragging about how they screwed you into paying more than your fair share of the bills. [Especially Developer].

5. They take advantage of and exploit people.

Machiavellians will do anything to achieve their goals. This means they have to use or exploit others. People are merely means to an end for them. They are objects to be used to further their interests. They might be friends, lovers or family members; it does not matter to the Machiavellian. Whether it is posting incriminating pictures of an ex-partner on social media or withholding vital information from a colleague. After all, isn’t everyone doing the same thing? [Especially Inspirational].

6. Flattery gets them everywhere – with you.

Machiavellian personalities come across as charming and personable when you first encounter them. They have a gift for flattery. The Machiavellian personality will tell you what you want to hear. They will exploit friendships and family members by flattering them. Remember those pyramid schemes in the 80s that took the life savings from ordinary folk? They relied on the charm and guile of ruthless salespeople. This is associated with the majority with Machiavellian traits.[Especially Inspirational and Developer].

7. They are highly strategic, but you would not know it at first.

You will not find the Machiavellian personality hogging centre stage like the narcissist or the psychopath. Machiavellians like to stay hidden in the shadows, quietly plotting their next tactical move. These are the ultimate coercive controllers. They like to pull the strings without being noticed. They will control the situation and then sit back and watch from afar as their plans unfold. [Especially Enhancer].

What to Do about a Person with Machiavellian Traits:

Some of the cohort find that it is disturbing to recognise the above signs and realise that you know someone with a Machiavellian personality. But you do not have to be at their whim.
The way to understand a Machiavellian personality is to recognise how they view the world and then what tactics they use to manipulate it.
People who score highly in Machiavellian traits think that people cannot be trusted, that they are selfish, gullible and weak. Therefore, they are there as pawns to be exploited.
Because they think the world is like this, they feel justified in using any means necessary to achieve their goals. They do not care about morality or feelings and want results with minimum effort. The Machiavellian personality may not be as dangerous as the psychopath or cause as much long-term emotional damage as the narcissist. However, they are highly devious, capable of delaying gratification and skilled in flattery and manipulation.

They are solely focused on their ambitions and will stop at nothing to achieve their end goals.
