i hope i don't sound crazy because i don't have nearly enough empirical evidence to support this but here it goes,
we all know that there are 16 different temperaments, but i purpose that there are only 4 "models" of people which can develop into 4 different temperament or Identity based on their outlooks on life, personal history, environmental factors and other stuff that i probably should of taken the time to research ( but at this point i'm really just trying to see if anyone else has this view before i abandon it and prevent my self from going crazy). and how would i define these 4 models? here is how i categorize them
(yes i understand people's body are completely different and based purely on their metabolism, caloric expenditure and diet but this is just a general trend I've noticed)
I call these guy's " questers " may it be the idealist or the mechanic all 4 of these people are able to devote incomparable amount of time into a single cause, Community, interest, goal . most often i find these guys to be tall and lengthy.
2.(INFJ,ENTP, ESTP, ISFJ)
I call these guy's the "paradox" from the seemingly virtuous protector to the wheel and dealing of the Promoter( DOers) these guys all seem to have greatness in having great mental lucidity able to jungle many complex and creative problems in business, relationships. i call them the paradox because they tend to justice doing the bad for the good or doing the good for the bad lol see confusing right? but most of the time i find these people to be rather big boned ( not fat and fluffy )
the " Beast " is the only way i can describe people of this breed for they are all Beasts!?!? From the relentless mastermind to the soulful artist, they are the master of the image and the self. fully engulfed in their realities by their supreme ability to absorb knowledge and carry forth any plan. only bad thing i can say about these fearless people is that more often then not they are too limited in their view of the reality, though taken to the up most degree of seriousness to you its still just a game. ( most cases i find these people are often good looking and a gifted body in strength and control unless they let them selves go...)
the " Alex " derived from the movie" A clockwork orange", the mind set of the protagonist Alex Burgess captures this role almost completely. a menace by choice of sheer will in an attempt to understand all there is to be understood, to weave through the human psyche with careless ease after all its all one big joke isn't it? short and agile these guys knows where to hit to hurt or not hurt i guess lol.
Yes all 16 temperaments are Very different People but take a second and reflect on why people do the things they do or act and i think you'll see that it is almost possible to slide between the roles within each model, Example being an INFP you might find the methods of ENTJ to be ruthless and would never consider a similar approach to life but i'm willing to bet that you'd be surprised how good you'd be able to emulate him.
I know the use of my language is sometimes confusing and often irrelevant to the point im trying to make but please feel free to attack this anyway you see fit don't hold back ask me questions! i don't fully understand it either!?
