1. Force
SLEs are ambitious, active individuals who are unparalleled in their ability to get what they want. Rapidly in tune with the lay of their surroundings, SLEs see the world around them as a battleground of wills, with each person competing for greater power and status. They are best at acting spontaneously and immediately to secure their goals in the present, getting an immediate sense of what is happening around them and what they need to do in order to stay ahead of competitors. In a state of emergency, they will be the first to respond, doing what is necessary to combat a particular threat, safeguarding their lives as well as those of others. Even in non-emergency situations, SLEs resolve to be the victor of skirmishes and are happy to pit themselves against others in order to win, utilising whatever resources are at their disposal to get an advantage. To SLEs, an obstacle is a challenge to be overcome, and they readily push against an issue with sheer determination until it folds under their will. Although not necessarily strong or able-bodied, SLEs have a natural physical presence and indefatigable determination that commands attention of others and allows them to dominate their surroundings, taking charge as a matter of course and forcing others to submit to their authority. SLEs enjoy the thrill of competition and tend to respect those who challenge or resist them, while looking upon those too lazy or weak-minded to stand up for themselves with disdain. Such an approach is not out of malice or destructive desires, but rather comes from a world-view where the greatest expression of life is competition between opposing forces and those most deserving of happiness in life are those willing to fight for it.

2. Laws
In order to have their way, SLEs have a strong command of the various logical systems that necessitate or restrict coercive pressures on others. SLEs know expertly how to use the law, their position in the hierarchy of a group or boundaries and ultimatums of their own creation to maintain control of a situation. As such, SLEs are quickly able to bring order to chaos. Similarly, they are capable of exploiting loopholes in a system, so as to find permitted ways of succeeding where others have failed. In this way, structures become the perfect tool for SLEs to consolidate their power and ensure their success. Furthermore it grants a linear approach to their use of force, with SLEs usually setting out what they intend to do and following through in a natural progression, rather than erratically switching between different goals. SLEs also use their logic to make their arguments and debates more persuasive, giving clear reasons for their opinions and ruthlessly breaking down the flawed reasoning of others. Despite this, SLEs are not necessarily obedient to the rules of others, and although able to use rules to their advantage, may act in contempt of the system should they know they are able to get away with it due to weak leadership or a lack of enforcement. Similarly with hierarchy, SLEs will be aware of their particular rank but be unsatisfied until they are at the top and the boss of everyone else, challenging and eventually conquering the system rather than paying deference to superiors. Once at the top, SLEs set to work tailoring the system to handle any threat to their position.

3. Ideas
SLEs prefer direct, tangible ways of interacting with their surroundings, seeing a problem or obstacle and prevailing against it. Nevertheless, they are aware of the need to be able to consider alternative plans of action and to be able to switch to a second option should their first prove unachievable due to unexpected circumstances. For this reason, SLEs are able to consider a multitude of possible options when necessary and can, when needed, flexibly adapt to changing circumstances. They may be open to new propositions and solutions when the most immediate and impacting approaches have been exhausted and thinking outside the box is required. SLEs are usually tolerant of otherwise confusing or unlikely scenarios, usually relying on their quick thinking and strong awareness of their immediate surroundings in order to improvise and pull through. However, the continued need to account for multiple eventualities can be a bother for SLEs, who would rather just tackle a particular issue and move on to the next. Instead, they favour the efforts of others to envision a long-term plan, which selects the likeliest probability to work towards and cutting out all the superfluous paths to success. 

4. Relations

The toughness of SLEs can often be a barrier to the formation of close, comfortable relationships with others. Usually SLEs will be largely focused on what they can achieve or win when interacting with the world, and will tend to overlook the personal sensitivities of others and whether what they are doing might hurt an individual's feelings. As such, battle-hardened SLEs have frequent trouble establishing appropriate distance and closeness with others, where a certain amount of equality and a mutual sense of belonging is required. SLEs can be so focused on winning or possessing others, that they may have difficulty belonging to someone else and letting the other make decisions for the pair. For this reason, SLEs do better with a partner who can maintain the illusion of submission to them, while influencing them back in subtle, more emotional ways. They may harshly, but unintentionally, cause great upset to those closest to them, or similarly overwhelm strangers and acquaintances with their hard approach. SLEs readily consider what they need to do in order to succeed, but are often negligent when it comes to speculating on how such actions may fit with an interior moral compass, not stopping to think about their inner attitudes and whether it feels right with their conscience. Usually SLEs have little patience for those who may object to their behaviours on personal, subjective grounds, and will usually pay little heed to such disagreements. This can lead to people condemning their personal character and criticising them as overly brutal or even soulless. Similarly, SLEs may frequently hunger for intense, physical contact with others, but forget to think about the quality of their relationship with a person, making them feel used or exploited. This can result in SLEs leading a promiscuous lifestyle, enjoying having partners without taking care to think about the deeper meaning of their relations.

5. Time
SLEs best function spontaneously, seizing an advantage in the present based on their desires or ambitions at that moment. As such, they are far less accustomed to considering the longer-term outcomes of their actions, where winning a battle may inadvertently lead to losing the war. SLEs may enjoy intense, vigorous action in the day to day and working to establish dominance of their surroundings, but can find that excessive action without due consideration of the higher purpose of why they are doing something can lead to a superficial existence of empty conflicts. However, while SLEs are frequently certain as to what they need to do in the here and now to get what they want, they are more unsure in terms of what these short-term decisions may lead to in the long run. SLEs need to feel that their actions are contributing to some kind of big picture, so that their struggles mean something important, rather than being petty squabbles. For this reason, SLEs greatly desire a cause to believe in and work towards or a destiny to play a part in. They tend to be very responsive to those who can visualise such a cause and, if accepting of a particular path, will endeavour to align their actions with it. This provides a much needed sense of fulfilment to SLEs and uplifts their actions into something more profound and meaningful. Furthermore, the lack of attention to long-term consequences can result in SLEs being reckless, where by placing too much confidence in their ability to handle situations in the moment, they might rush into things too soon when the situation requires adequate preparation and planning.

6. Emotions
The concrete ambitions of SLEs are supported by their desire for others to recognise their achievements. Prestige and status are the markers of success for SLEs and when able to, are likely to make public demonstrations of their wealth or power. Often such demonstrations are big and ostentatious, showing off the resources they have accumulated or other assets they have in order to impress. Furthermore, SLEs tend to enjoy expressing their opinions and to others, measuring the value of what they say in the reactions they are able to garner from those around them. They also tend to enjoy being the centre of attention, trying to be the funniest or most admired person in any group they happen to occupy. In such moments, where everyone is focusing on them, SLEs tend to feel most proud of what they have accomplished. However, due to SLEs' lack of sensitivity to the individual delicacies of others, there is a chance that they may say something inappropriate or offensive, upsetting people and making them come across to others as an unpleasant or unsavoury person. Such situations, where an SLE can quickly go from a celebrated leader to a social pariah, tend to be a source of great dismay to SLEs, although they are unlikely to show their own hurt to others in public, not wanting to air any vulnerabilities they might have to others. Regardless of group acceptance, SLEs enjoy testing and pushing the emotional reactions of others, and may try to see how far they can go with others, as while being able to control situations is easy for them, being able to manipulate the emotional responses in others is a more challenging task to master.

7. Senses
Although aware of the sensory needs and limits of their body, SLEs prefer to lead a strenuous life, pushing their body to its limits and overcoming physical challenges. SLEs have a varying approach to materialism, usually preferring to live a tough, Spartan life with few luxuries, so that they do not get weakened by softness. Instead, they may frequently exercise or seek to build up their bodies to be ready for any challenge that faces them. They may even try to push those who they see as overly restful, disturbing the tranquility and forcing them to react on instinct. However, SLE appreciate luxury in the form of the status symbols and concrete displays of their power, so may indulge for this reason. Should they enjoy rest and leisure, it is because it is a sign of their ownership of leisure, and they may be very generous in inviting others to share in the enjoyable lifestyle they alone are able to provide. However, most apparent is their willingness to tolerate a great deal of physical pain in order to win the challenges they set for themselves. The willpower of SLEs is necessarily connected to the ignoring of inconveniences and even flesh wounds to secure their goals, with them knowing that suffering no pain often results in no gain. Furthermore, SLEs tend to have a good sense of aesthetic when cultivating an appearance. However, such an approach is rarely peaceful or harmonious with the environment, instead, trying to push out against it for maximum impact. As such, SLEs may choose to dress sharply or provocatively to maximise their effect on the environment.

8. Pragmatism

The ability to quickly get a sense what is happening in their immediate environment is only matched by SLEs' ability to know exactly what needs to be done and how it can best be done to the greatest effect. SLEs tend to be highly competent and pragmatic in their thinking, usually being confident in their ability to handle any practical problem they are faced with. Similarly they are very good at learning new information on the fly and tend to catch on to how things work quickly in a new situation, allowing them to soon gain mastery over new environments. However, SLEs are largely uninterested in the idea of continuously updating and tweaking how they do things in order to improve their methodologies and processes. Such an approach feels unnecessary to SLEs, who would much rather tackle each situation as it comes and use their will and wits in the moment to succeed. That they should learn from each experience and improve for its own sake, with no particular challenge to overcome, sounds too dry and boring to SLEs' tastes and they would much rather save such thinking to their instincts and adrenaline. Similarly, SLEs are less interested in looking at what can be done improve features of processes around them, being more interested in increasing their impact on the world and gaining admiration for doing so.
