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.

  1. The only criticism i have is this:
    "However, SEEs are rarely known to be lazy or content when there is something they want."
    This is a true statement but i didn't see any emphasis on the extreme laziness of an SEE during an energy low (throughout the day, thematically EP temperment).
    Other than that, this is great!! It's a healthy medium, it neither outlines the extreme unhealthy SEE nor the extreme justice warrior.
    This may be your best yet!

  2. Well, maybe another thing that's missing is the need for constant social stimulation and intense dislike for being alone or bored.

  3. Lol sorry but also not mentioned is the obsessive intimacy, overwhelming intensity of feelings, impulsive need to express those feelings and desires, and occasional lapse in self control related to such inner world

    1. Edits will be made soon.
      Does this mean you identify as SEE now?

    2. Why would this mean I identify with SEE? :P
      Well, since you're asking, I still haven't made any conclusions in my own head about it.
      You probably know the reasons why. I identify as ESI, SEE-H, ISFP, or gamma sf.

    3. I think the first sentence in this profile is great. XD it needed to be said.
