SEE - Sensory Ethical Energiser

This is the type profile for the Sensory Ethical Energiser (SEE). To see more type profiles, click here.

Elizabeth Taylor
1. Force
The SEE is most notable for their fiercely independent desire to do what they want when they want. Possessed with a strong, challenging and largely upbeat energy, they are usually the first to act impulsively on a situation according to their will, confronting their immediate reality to make it advantageous to them and those they care for. SEEs see success in being able to resist opposing forces and prevail on their own resourcefulness and determination, being their own boss and fighting off those who would command them. When placed in a social hierarchy, the only level satisfactory for the SEE is one where they answer to no one, resulting in them climbing straight for the top. In such activities, SEEs tend to show great gusto, as they love the vitality of pitting themselves against a hard problem and pushing through to the other side. For this reason, SEEs are regularly seen as gregarious go-getters, rising to the challenge and usually reaping the rewards. In the social sphere, SEEs tend to dominate with their ability to steer a conversation the way they want it to go. They tend to be quickly noticed in a room of people for this reason and people can find them captivating. Similarly, their natural social confidence is the source of much of their ambition, with SEEs conquering, not merely through force, but through the hearts and minds of those they have won over.

2. Relations
Julius Caesar
Possessing a great need for social stimuli, SEEs like to see their friends regularly and meet with people face to face, so as to feel alive and not alone. Frequently, SEEs exercise their will in the sphere of interpersonal relations. SEEs are quickly able to size up a person, their subtle likes and dislikes, the invisible boundaries and the lines they can push. As such, they know how to charm a stranger or conquer the opposite sex. They are able to quickly form a rapport with another person and, if tactically useful, get them to willingly do what they want. The SEE tends to be the clear leader in most of their social relations, preferring to take the lead than be led by anyone else. As such, they tend to be the active half of any duo, with the other person tending to follow. SEEs are interested in people and derive much value from meaningful, quality time with others. However, SEEs are not so friendly to everyone. They know what they like and what they do not like. To those they do not like, an SEE can be a force to be feared. SEEs will usually make it quite clear when they are in contempt of a particular individual and can make that person the target of their fearsome temper. These situations are comparatively rare however, as the SEE is gregarious and proactive in fostering positive relations with others, and finding those people whom they can identify with in a meaningful and reciprocated way. SEEs can be very eager to protect these chosen few, and will do so tenaciously, going out of their way to help them. However, they can also be very demanding of such people, expecting much from them based on the closeness of their relation. As a result, befriending an SEE is often challenging, but rewarding.

3. Ideas
SEEs are able to brainstorm and think about different ideas and initiatives in order to solve a particular issue. Similarly, SEEs reserve the ability to act decisively in areas of uncertainty, usually throwing aside caution so that they can jump in and pull through on sheer resilience. Usually their ability to improvise in the moment will serve them well, and an unexpected situation can usually be responded to and dealt with without much hindrance to the SEE's desires. However, SEEs prefer it when the matter is simple and straightforward and can be irritated by the delay of too much speculation, or if the problem is too abstract and cannot be fixed by some concrete action. Although a multitude of options is sometimes necessary for success, the SEE prefers there to be a clear goal or end for them to direct their energy towards, and can quickly grow impatient if ambiguity should leave them floundering in the options. Similarly, SEEs are able to keep an open mind when assessing others and can to an extent pick up on the inner potential of their acquaintances; what they could do rather than just what they have done. However, SEEs do not tend to indulge this way of thinking unless needed, preferring more immediate and decisive assessments of others based on the traits that are already apparent.

4. Laws
Mark Cuban
SEEs are fundamentally erratic in their thoughts and behaviours, which may belie a lack of logical clarity. SEEs tend to make their decisions impulsively and capriciously, doing what they want, when they want, and they usually fail to consider whether these decisions are consistent with what they have said or done before. As such, there is little about the SEE that will remain the same in all cases. For this reason, SEEs may strongly resist being analysed or defined by any theoretical system, as they tend to believe no fixed theory can adequately fathom their tempestuous nature. Occasionally, the desires of SEEs can be unreasonable, with their appetites driving them to want more than they are owed and shirk the rules for their desires and those of their friends. This may be interpreted as opportunistic or selfish by more orderly, principled sorts of people. Certainly, SEEs are more disposed to think in terms of what they are able to get, rather than their right to have it, and they may try to challenge or ignore the rule of law when they can get away with it. Usually, SEEs take the position of pure pragmatism, nothing being seen as intrinsically correct or out of bounds, and adopting wildly different policies from one situation to the next. For the SEE, "whatever works" is often sufficient. The need to be consistent and have a clear ideology or set of principles is foreign to the SEE who is more inclined to doing whatever they want and finding whatever can help them to do so, regardless of where it sits with previous attempts. Such theoretical propositions, to the SEE, are worthless unless converted into real, practical action that serves a need.

5. Time
Naturally disposed towards decisive action in the present, SEEs tend to be impatient and have difficulty looking far ahead to see the consequences of their actions. They may be headstrong and act without foresight, jumping into the fray without knowing the likely outcomes and hitting a brick wall. Similarly, they may have difficulty remembering and adequately learning from their past mistakes, being more inclined to base their actions purely on what seems to be the circumstances of the moment. For this reason, although they tend to achieve success, this is usually through impulsive, initiative-taking, surveying the immediate surroundings to gain a tactical advantage, rather than thinking ahead or developing a coherent strategy. However, they tend to appreciate the counsel of a select few who they know tend to be right about such things. SEEs benefit greatly from the foresight of others and a focus on greater purposes and goals brings a sense of meaning to the SEEs erratic hyperactivity, making it more clear as to why they should act in the first place. Although prone to pugnacity, SEEs will harbour a curious respect for those who are not afraid to say they think the SEE's latest scheme may be stupid and end in disaster. To such people, the SEE may return again and again, utilising such wisdom to advise their actions and better guide what they do along a path of predicted success.

6. Pragmatism
Andrew Jackson
For SEEs, the key to success is knowledge and many will place great emphasis on learning from one's mistakes and self-improvement so that they can better tackle future obstacles. SEEs want to be able to see themselves as knowledgeable and may be eager to share whatever they may have learned. When trying to solve a new problem, the SEE may learn to try out a few options until something shows a sign of working, at which point, the SEE will push ahead at full pace. However, sometimes their tendency to rush into things and cut corners may cause them to slip, leading to a failure. SEEs are aware that they do not process factual and practical information as well as others and want to improve themselves so as to be minimise any incompetence on their part. They look forward to winning people over through not only charm but also their demonstrated intelligence and accumulated knowledge. As such, SEEs can benefit from the occasional factual support and know-how of a trusted source. They will tend to work very hard at matters that interest them, cutting out distractions and disciplining themselves into learning the necessary material and applying it efficiently in the field. Similarly, in a debate scenario, SEEs will combine their forceful tenacity with a honed knowledge of the relevant facts, being sharp enough to provide a well-sourced and evidenced comeback to most critiques.

7. Senses
SEEs tend to be restless, ambitious individuals, often trying to satisfy their appetite for improvement and achievement. As such, there is little room for restful relaxation. SEEs are characterised by an almost hyperactive energy state and are unlikely to sit and enjoy their surroundings when they can be acting upon it. However, SEEs tend to have a good eye for the details they are looking for and can quickly cultivate the right look to maximise impact on their surroundings. Understanding the importance of looking nice for a sense of personal pride and to have an appealing and inviting impact on others, SEEs can make themselves look sensual and gracious, cultivating the right aesthetic for the occasion. Doing so helps to sharpen the edge of their charm. Erratic in their energy, SEEs may be inclined to rest when there is nothing else to do, but will jump into action when there is something they want. In such situations, enjoyment of the present situation is pushed out of mind as something else becomes the object of their appetites. In the pursuit of their ambitions, SEEs tend to have a strong impact on the environment, while largely ignoring its effect on overall peace and harmony. Similarly, their toughness allows them to ignore pain when pushing unstoppably towards a goal. Although largely seeking to protect the needs of people they care for, SEEs are likely to do this in a way that takes people out of their comfort zones, preferring to push and challenge people in a way that takes them close to, but never over, their limits.

8. Emotions
Elvis Presley
SEEs tend to be emotionally dynamic, oozing a dominant charisma that can quickly win people over and indirectly pick up the mood. This tends to attract a lot of attention, with SEEs rarely going unnoticed. However, despite often enjoying their impact in a social scene, SEEs do not care to play up to the crowd or maintain the moods they create. Although usually very charming, this operates on a case by case basis, with the SEE making lots of allies from different situations but also making enemies on occasion or agreeing to disagree. In regards to publicity and the common opinion, the SEE can be fiercely independent and unafraid of drawing controversy if the matter is something they feel strongly about. SEEs are motivated to express themselves sincerely, often with candor and even frightening pugnacity, should they feel a pressure from others to conform. Although sensitive to others needs, they are unlikely to flatter or excite others beyond a basic level of sincerity and will just as likely provide harsh, overblown critique if they feel that is more justified. They are usually very observant of the emotions used by others and will quickly call out ploys they feel are fake or manipulative. In addition, they may depend on changes in the mood and how others react to them as a useful measure of their impact on the surroundings.

ESI - Ethical Sensory Integrator

This is the profile for the Ethical Sensory Integrator (ESI). To see more type profiles, click here.

Margaret Thatcher
1. Relations
Foremost to the ESI is their focus on personal integrity and strength of character. ESIs are largely motivated by the strength of their personal convictions, providing personal feeling of what around them is good and what is evil, as well as the sense of obligation to protect the former and resist the latter. ESIs tend to be judgmental of people, forming firm opinions of others based on their actions. The main question concerning ESIs is the quality of connection they have with the people they meet, whether they share in personal values and can be trusted or relied on in times of need. As such, quickly form opinions of the person's character from how they have acted and what they have heard about them, looking with scrutiny for anything that would make them an unsuitable contact. ESIs instinctively adjust their level of closeness with people based on their expressed qualities. ESIs have a knack for knowing the appropriate distance of their relations with others, keeping friends near, undesirables out of their lives and those between in different kinds of partnership depending on the circumstances. ESIs are motivated to connect deeply with certain other individuals and form stable, reliable bonds. They want someone they can feel comfortable sharing their personal selves with intimately and take such relations very seriously. A true friend is an ally for life, and they place great emphasis on personal loyalty, kindness and selflessness towards their friends. However, they can be prickly and will not easily forgive those who have betrayed their trust. In this way, the ESI creates stability, knowing well the few they can rely and depend on, while carefully keeping the rest at an arm's length.

2. Force
Christopher Hitchens
ESIs regularly possess a steeliness and protect their sensitive nature with a tough shell. As such, they are able to enforce their convictions with determination and are not afraid to confront others if they feel it will do some good. For them, morally disgusting or wicked behaviour is something to be attacked, rather than allowed to continue towards them or the people they feel responsible for. However, ESIs usually choose their battles depending on whether people close to them are involved or not, at times cutting their losses and leaving the situation. Although their default position is to support more industrious people close to them, they can also make good leaders in matters they particularly care about, knowing who can be relied upon to help them. ESIs often believe in manifesting their ideals by example, challenging others close to them to follow. Although this toughness may intimidate some, others appreciate their dependable will to do right by their friends and will cherish their dogged loyalty. ESIs treat harm to their friends more seriously than harm to themselves and vehemently protect those they care about from interlopers, avenging wrongs done to them. Frequently, the character judgements of an ESI are harsh in quality. They instinctively size people up, trying to tell who is good and who is a scoundrel and will not hesitate to criticise scathingly in their frank estimation of a person's failings.

3. Laws The ESI is well aware of the need to preserve law and order, and will often keep things organised and structured, laying down needed boundaries to prevent disarray. ESIs also tend to be quite logical and well reasoned in their discussions, being able to emphasise clearly some basic principles and the semblance of their thoughts in an objective, rational form. Despite this, ESIs rarely focus on these rulings as absolute, but as mere guidelines. For them, goodness cannot be written in a rulebook, but must originate from within. While communicating their ideals in a clear structure may be useful, it should not replace for them the personal quality of their convictions that forms judgements on sentiment rather than impartial deduction. As such, ESIs may enforce the law when they feel it is good, but may be at odds with the letter of the law when they feel the moral spirit of the law is being overlooked. In such situations they are often the first to voice their opinions and drop protocol over a matter of conscientious objection. In this way, ESIs are capable of being highly orderly, but will not be consistent in their commitments to such frameworks.

4. Ideas
George Washington
In their reliance on stability in interpersonal relations, ESIs can be irked by the presence of ambiguity. When confronted with a new situation, where anything could happen, the ESI will feel lost and uneasy. Usually they will require people to say what they mean, disliking it when something has more than one possible interpretation, being puzzling or lacking straightforwardness. In such tricky situations, they may be overly stern and interpret things literally, possibly taking offence. ESIs are likely to have little interest in theoretical speculation, where a broad range of ideas are discussed without clear, immediate application. The ESI will likely feel confused by such pursuits, failing to appreciate its merits. However, they may tolerate it as a harmless past time, provided such a rambling and whimsical approach does not extend to real life. Their fear is that uncovering new territory will disrupt the clear continuity of where their life is going, opening up new windows that makes their future less straightforward. Furthermore, the ESI tends to be particularly suspicious of those who are unpredictable, needing people who they can rely on. As such, they tend to distrust new people until their faith is earned through concrete actions, being largely unable to assess what someone could possibly do and only looking at what they have already done. Should a negative decision be made, they will likely cut themselves off and avoid further contact, not seeing the point in giving second chances or entertaining the scenario where they might have been wrong.

5. Pragmatism
ESIs tend to rely successfully on their gut in making personal decisions, but when faced with more impersonal choices, lack the ability to assess the facts with the same shrewdness. ESIs tend to know their convictions but are less able to reach a pragmatic conclusion from assessing factual data. They may be rash in their judgements and quick to form opinions without due consideration, or take an overly long time to puzzle over the best decision. In unfamiliar situations, they may grow anxious, not knowing what to do or how to do it and feeling useless. Furthermore they can be clumsy with practical tasks and worry that they will muck things up when left to their own devices. However, ESIs are greatly appreciative of educated people with knowledge and expertise, who willingly offer information to help them form better stances. ESIs are usually critical of strangers with new information, but often look to a trusted friend or expert as their source and will call upon their advice in order to make informed decisions, believing what they say after ascertaining they can be relied on as a person. ESI may be very interested in bettering themselves, reading up on a variety of helpful texts or placing an emphasis on institutions of higher learning. In this way, they hope to learn and improve over time.

6. Time

Robert De Niro
ESIs tend to possess a strong desire for a secure, long term future and often try to set out a clear plan for their lives. ESIs aspire to have clear goals in life and usually dedicate their efforts to following through on that purpose. However, without inspiration, some ESIs may be given to floundering in the choices available to them, which may be a source of stress. Often, there will be a particular outcome that they will want to see achieved in their lifetime, sometimes in the political or social spheres, and they will take pride in themselves by being able to stay the course and see it through to the end. To an extent, they will also be able to think ahead and try to avoid likely derailings that might happen from blindly following their ideals. However, ESIs tend to be impulsive in daily matters, and appreciate reminders on occasion that their actions in the present might take them off course for the long run. In this way, ESIs take personal pride in setting and reaching their goals, as well as successfully resisting any possible distractions or deviations from the path. When committed to a path, they may also be rather stubborn about sticking with it, and resist changes without adequate justification. Furthermore, ESIs place a great emphasis, not merely on the rightness of people's actions, but also their regularity and reliability in acting beneficially. ESIs tend to have good memories for people's merits and faults, not forgetting a wrong done to them and only forgiving sufficient remorse. From observing past trends, they are able to see who has proven themselves over time and as a result, adjust the level of trust with their close relations.

Queen Noor
7. Emotions
ESIs in general see it as undignified and inappropriate to express their emotions openly with surrounding people they do not yet know or have had the trust to size up. Instead they are selective, selecting those they like in order to share their deepest emotional states. When around people they do not feel such a connection with, they are more inclined feel their emotions for themselves and not unnecessarily put those emotions onto others. When upset by friends they tend to simply state how they feel in a matter of fact manner. However, should someone they dislike anger them, they are more likely to internally simmer. Revenge for them is a dish best served cold, after all. For this reason, some can mistake the ESI for being more logical and objective than they necessarily are. Nevertheless, when others are doing something they personally feel is wrong, they are inclined to speak out, and icily challenge the individuals regardless of the group mood. ESIs may be emotionally warm with those who who have gained their trust, and may be given to more open displays of affection and other feelings. Furthermore, when absolutely necessary, an ESI can put on a front of welcoming emotionality in order to achieve a particular purpose, although this will be tiring if kept up for too long. Such scenarios will have to be justified by the ESI to themselves beforehand however as they will likely detest the insincerity.

8. Senses
George W. Bush
Frequently, ESIs are aware of their level of comfort and the harmony of the space they occupy. They will likely have a strong eye for detail and be capable with handling meticulously detailed information, such as carefully colour-coding important accounts and keeping tabs on the day-to-day things around them. However, ESIs are unlikely to place much emphasis on softness or pleasantness in their relations with others. They are more inclined to be tough with others who deserve it and will not back down from fighting an issue if it needs to be fought. Instead, an awareness of comfort will become most apparent in ESIs personally deciding their feelings on people and situations around them, being able to pick up on not only their emotional but physical reactions to others and use this to tune in on whether a person is right for them or makes their skin crawl. However, for those who are closest to them, there will be signs of comforting and care, with the softer side of the ESI showing in helping their nearest and dearest. ESIs are usually able to quickly decide upon how they feel about a person in the moment and at times this can lead to promiscuous relations with those they are comfortable around. However, ESIs will usually later regret such encounters, seeing such hedonism as not being conducive to long term benefit.
