Secret Political MBTI Statistics | Myers Briggs

Published by:

  1. The first executive rule of Trump Club is: you do not talk about hand size.
  2. The second executive rule of Trump Club is: you DO NOT talk about crowd size!
  3. Third executive rule of Trump Club: if someone yells “racist!”, “misogynist”, or enters the U.S. illegally, they will be deported.
  4. Fourth rule: any member of the Trump cabinet who defies or obstructs the Trump agenda will be promptly fired.

Like it or not, the Trump administration is here and open for business, making many leftists unhappy – very unhappy in the process. Only weeks into his term, there has already been a handful of drama and tumult surrounding Trump’s activity. From fake news reports like the one of him removing the bust of MLK from the oval office, to virulent protests and riots directly or indirectly connected to him, to Alec Baldwin’s unflattering yet surprisingly good Trump impersonation on SNL, the Donald has been a political pinata for critics to whack unabashedly.




Among those opposed to him, Meryl Streep and Madonna have joined the anti-Trump bandwagon because you know, it’s very trendy right now. Interestingly, both Madonna and Meryl Streep have been typed as ESTPs – the same as Trump. Yet, they have taken an opposing stance against him. Where’s the loyalty? And is there any significant correlation between Myers Briggs type and political affiliation?

Granted, although Trump ran and won on the Republican ticket, he is not a typical Republican. In fact, he has been reported to have switched parties 5 times. This demonstrates that at least he is not a fixed-minded person and is able to change his views when necessary. Does that make him a flip-flopping charlatan? A phony? Depends, but in my opinion The Donald simply knows what he wants and goes for it, but is not as Machiavellian as he is often purported to be. Maybe just a tad, but it’s probably a good thing.





“ESTPs are big-thinking, action-oriented entrepreneurs – bold go-getters who go for what they want with great confidence in themselves. “

– celebritytypes.com


I believe it is understood and accepted that even among a group of ESTPs, there will undoubtedly be an amount of psychological diversity. You cannot discount the role of personal experience and other unique variables on the formation of a group of personalities regardless of their shared cognitive preferences. It is probably more like a sliding scale than a binary on/off switch. That said, one might suspect that certain personality types would correlate more highly with the values of one political group over another by virtue of their constituent function stack. Namely, it would be reasonable to expect Sensor types to identify with conservative views and intuitives with liberal ones.

Below is a table taken from a U.S. sample of 3000 people. It was part of data collected when Consulting Psychologists’ Press revised the MBTI in 1998. Political affiliation and mbti type was among the survey questions.

Myers Briggs type and political affiliation

As you can see, from observing the table, there are a few things that stand out:

  • xSTJs and xNTJs identify as Republican the most.
  • Democrat affiliation is lowest among rational types.
  • Democrats are represented highest among “SF” and “NF” types.
  • ESTJs mostly identify as Republican.
  • INTPs followed by ENTPs identify mostly as Independent.

Defining Conservatism Versus Liberalism

  • CONSERVATIVES – believe in personal responsibility, limited government, free markets, individual liberty, traditional American values and a strong national defense. Believe the role of government should be to provide people the freedom necessary to pursue their own goals. Conservative policies generally emphasize empowerment of the individual to solve problems.
  • LIBERALS – believe in governmental action to achieve equal opportunity and equality for all, and that it is the duty of the State to alleviate social ills and to protect civil liberties and individual and human rights. Believe the role of the government should be to guarantee that no one is in need. Believe that people are basically good. Liberal policies generally emphasize the need for the government to solve people’s problems.



The MBTI Types and Political Issues

1. Gun Control 

  • Conservatives believe that individual Americans have a right to defend themselves and their families with guns and that right cannot be taken away by any method short of a Constitutional Amendment. The Second Amendment gives the individual the right to keep and bear arms. Gun control laws do not thwart criminals. You have a right to defend yourself against criminals. More guns mean less crime.
    Relevant function: Extroverted Sensing
    likely in favor by: ISTP, ESTP, ISFP, ESFP
  • Liberals believe by taking arms away from law abiding citizens, they can prevent criminals, who aren’t going to abide by gun control laws, from using guns in the commission of crimes. The Second Amendment gives no individual the right to own a gun, but allows the state to keep a militia (National Guard). Guns kill people. Guns kill children.
    Relevant function: Introverted Intuition
    Likely in favor by: INTJ, INFJ, ENTJ, ENFJ

2. Affirmative Action

  • Conservatives believe that we should live in a color blind society where every individual is judged on the content of his character and the merits of his/her actions. People should be admitted to schools and hired for jobs based on their ability. It is unfair to use race as a factor in the selection process. Reverse discrimination is not a solution for racism. 
    Relevant function: Introverted Feeling
    Likely in favor by: ISFP, ENFP, INFP, ENFP
  • Liberals believe that it’s okay to discriminate based on race as long as it primarily benefits minority groups. Due to prevalent racism in the past, minorities were deprived of the same education and employment opportunities as whites. We need to make up for that. Support affirmative action based on the belief that America is still a racist society. Minorities still lag behind whites in all statistical measurements of success. Also, the presence of minorities creates diversity.
    Relevant function: Extroverted Feeling
    Likely in favor by: ESFJ, ENFJ, ISFJ, INFJ

3. Social Welfare

  • Conservatives oppose long-term welfare. We need to provide opportunities to make it possible for poor and low-income workers to become self-reliant. It is far more compassionate and effective to encourage a person to become self-reliant, rather than keeping them dependent on the government for money.
    Relevant function: Extroverted Thinking
    Likely in favor by: ESTJ, ENTJ, ISTJ, INTJ
  • Liberals think that the solution to every problem is another government program. Even when those new programs create new problems, often worse than the ones that were being fixed in the first place, the solution is always….you guessed it, another government program. They support social welfare. They want welfare to provide for the poor. To liberals, conservatives oppose welfare because they are not compassionate toward the poor. We have welfare to bring fairness to American economic life. Without welfare, life below the poverty line would be intolerable.
    Relevant function: Introverted Feeling
    Likely in favor by: ISFP, ENFP, INFP, ENFP



4. Economy

  • Conservatives are capitalists and believe that entrepreneurs who amass great wealth through their own efforts are good for the country and shouldn’t be punished for being successful. The free market system, competitive capitalism, and private enterprise afford the widest opportunity and the highest standard of living for all. Free markets produce more economic growth, more jobs and higher standards of living than those systems burdened by excessive government regulation.
    Relevant function: Extroverted Intuition, Extroverted Thinking
    Likely in favor by: ENTP, ENFP, ENTJ, ESTJ

 

  • Liberals are socialists who view successful business owners as people who cheated the system somehow or got lucky. That’s why they don’t respect high achievers and see them as little more than piggy banks for their programs. Favor a market system in which government regulates the economy. We need government to protect us against big businesses. Unlike the private sector, the government is motivated by public interest. We need government regulation to level the playing field.
    Relevant function: Introverted Feeling, Introverted Sensing
    Likely in favor by: ISFP, INFP, ISTJ, ISFJ

5. Abortion

  • Conservatives believe that abortion ends the life of an innocent child and since we believe that infanticide is wrong, we oppose abortion. Human life begins at conception. Abortion is the murder of a human being. Nobody has the right to murder a human being. Support legislation to prohibit partial birth abortions, called the “Partial Birth Abortion Ban” (partial birth abortion – the killing of an unborn baby of at least 20 weeks by pulling it out of the birth canal with forceps, but leaving the head inside. An incision is made in the back of the baby’s neck and the brain tissue is suctioned out. The head is then removed from the uterus.)
    Relevant function: Introverted Sensing
    Likely in favor by: ESTJ, ESFJ, ISTJ, ISFJ
  • Liberals, largely believe that abortion ends the life of an innocent child, but they prefer killing the baby to inconveniencing the mother. A fetus is not a human life. The decision to have an abortion is a personal choice of a woman regarding her own body and the government should stay out of it. Women should be guaranteed the right to a safe and legal abortion, including partial birth abortion. Relevant function: Introverted Thinking
    Likely in favor by: ISTP, ENTP, INTP, ESTP

6. Government

  • Conservatives, but not necessarily Republicans (which is unfortunate), believe it’s vitally important to the future of the country to reduce the size of government, keep taxes low, balance the budget, and get this country out of debt. Conservatives believe that government, by its very nature, tends to be inefficient, incompetent, wasteful, and power hungry. That’s why we believe that the government that governs least, governs best.
    Relevant function: Extroverted Thinking
    Likely in favor by: ESTJ, ENTJ, ISTJ, INTJ
  • Liberals, and Democrats for that matter, believe in big government, high taxes, and they have never met a new spending program they didn’t like, whether we will have to go into debt to pay for it or not.
    Relevant function: Extroverted Feeling
    Likely in favor by: ESFJ, ENFJ, ISFJ, INFJ

7. Religion

  • Conservatives believe the phrase “separation of church and state” is not in the Constitution. The First Amendment to the Constitution states “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof…” This prevents the government from establishing a national church. However, it does not prevent God from being acknowledged in schools and government buildings. Oppose the removal of symbols of Christian heritage from public and government spaces. Government should not interfere with religion and religious freedom.
    Relevant function: Introverted Sensing
    Likely in favor by: ESTJ, ESFJ, ISTJ, ISFJ
  • Liberals, most of them anyway, are hostile to Christianity. That’s why, whether you’re talking about a school play at Christmas time, a judge putting the Ten Commandments on the wall of his court, or a store employee saying “Merry Christmas” instead of “Happy Holidays,” liberals are dedicated to driving reminders of Christianity from polite society. They support the separation of church and state. Religious expression has no place in government. Support the removal of all references to God in public and government spaces.
    Relevant function: Introverted Feeling
    Likely in favor by: ISFP, ENFP, INFP, ENFP 

8. Death Penalty

  • Conservatives believe the death penalty is a punishment that fits the crime; it is neither ‘cruel’ nor ‘unusual’. Executing a murderer is the appropriate punishment for taking an innocent life.
    Relevant function: Introverted Thinking
    Likely in favor by: ISTP, ENTP, INTP, ESTP

  • Liberals believe we should abolish the death penalty. The death penalty is inhumane and is ‘cruel and unusual’ punishment. It does not deter crime. Imprisonment is the appropriate punishment. Every execution risks killing an innocent person.
    Relevant function: Introverted Feeling
    Likely in favor by: ISFP, ENFP, INFP, ENFP 



9. Education

  • Conservatives advocate for school vouchers to give all parents the right to choose good schools for their children, not just those who can afford private schools. Parents (who pay the taxes that fund the schools) should decide how and where to educate their child.
    Relevant function: Introverted Feeling
    Likely in favor by: ISFP, ENFP, INFP, ENFP
  • Liberals believe School vouchers are untested experiments. We need to focus on more funding for existing public schools -to raise teacher salaries and reduce class size.
    Relevant function: Extroverted Feeling
    Likely in favor by: ESFJ, ENFJ, ISFJ, INFJ

10. The Environment

  • Conservatives desire clean water, clean air and a clean planet, just like everyone else. However, extreme environmental policies destroy jobs and damage the economy. Changes in global temperatures are natural over long periods of time. So far, science has not shown that humans can affect permanent change to the earth’s temperature. 
    Relevant function: Extroverted Sensing
    likely in favor by: ISTP, ESTP, ISFP, ESFP
  • Liberals believe Conservatives don’t care about protecting the environment. Industrial growth harms the environment. Global warming is caused by an increased production of carbon dioxide. The U.S. is a major contributor to global warming because it produces 25% of the world’s carbon dioxide. The U.S. should enact laws to significantly reduce that amount. 
    Relevant function: Extroverted Thinking
    Likely in favor by: ESTJ, ENTJ, ISTJ, INTJ 

11. Healthcare

  • Conservatives believe that free healthcare provided by the government (socialized medicine) means that everyone will get the same poor-quality healthcare. The rich will continue to pay for superior healthcare, while all others will receive poor-quality free healthcare from the government. Health care should remain privatized. Support Healthcare Spending Accounts. 
    Relevant function: Extroverted Thinking
    Likely in favor by: ESTJ, ENTJ, ISTJ, INTJ
  • Liberals support universal government-supervised health care. There are millions of Americans who can’t afford health insurance. They are being deprived of a basic right to healthcare.
    Relevant function: Extroverted Feeling
    Likely in favor by: ESFJ, ENFJ, ISFJ, INFJ

12. Immigration

  • Conservatives support legal immigration at current numbers, but do not support illegal immigration. Government should enforce immigration laws. Oppose President Bush’s amnesty plan for illegal immigrants. Those who break the law by entering the U.S. illegally should not have the same rights as those who obey the law by entering legally. If there were a decrease in cheap, illegal immigrant labor, employers would have to substitute higher priced domestic employees, legal immigrants, or perhaps increase mechanization.
    Relevant function: Extroverted Sensing
    likely in favor by: ISTP, ESTP, ISFP, ESFP
  • Liberals support legal immigration and increasing the number of legal immigrants permitted to enter the U.S. each year. Support blanket amnesty for current illegal immigrants. Believe that regardless of how they came to the U.S., illegal immigrants deserve: – U.S. government financial aid for college tuition. – visas for spouse/children to come to the U.S. Families shouldn’t be separated. Illegal immigrants do the jobs that Americans do not want to do. 
    Relevant function: Extroverted Feeling
    Likely in favor by: ESFJ, ENFJ, ISFJ, INFJ



13. Same-Sex Marriage

  • Conservatives insist that marriage is between one man and one woman. Opinions differ on support for the creation of a constitutional amendment establishing marriage as the union of one man and one woman. Believe that requiring citizens to sanction same-sex relationships violates moral and religious beliefs of millions of Christians, Jews, Muslims and others who believe marriage is the union of a man and a woman.
    Relevant function: Introverted Sensing
    Likely in favor by: ESTJ, ESFJ, ISTJ, ISFJ
  • Liberals believe marriage should be legal for gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender couples to ensure equal rights for all. All individuals, regardless of their sex, have the right to marry. Believe that prohibiting same-sex citizens from marrying denies them of their civil rights. Opinions differ on whether this issue is equal to civil rights for African Americans. 
    Relevant function: Extroverted Feeling
    Likely in favor by: ESFJ, ENFJ, ISFJ, INFJ

14. Social Security

  • Conservatives believe the current Social Security system is in serious financial trouble. Changes are necessary because the U.S. will be unable to maintain the current system it in the future. Support proposal to allow a portion of Social Security dollars withheld to be put into an account chosen by the individual, not the government. 
    Relevant function: Introverted Intuition
    Likely in favor by: INTJ, INFJ, ENTJ, ENFJ

 

  • Liberals generally oppose change to the current Social Security system. Opinions vary on whether the current system is in financial trouble. Changing the current system will cause people to lose their Social Security benefits. Support a cap on Social Security payments to the wealthy. 
    Relevant function: Introverted Feeling
    Likely in favor by: ISFP, ENFP, INFP, ENFP 

15. Taxation

  • Conservatives support lower taxes and a smaller government. Lower taxes create more incentive for people to work, save, invest, and engage in entrepreneurial endeavors. Money is best spent by those who earn it.
    Relevant function: Introverted Thinking
    Likely in favor by: ISTP, ENTP, INTP, ESTP
  • Liberals support higher taxes and a larger government. High taxes enable the government to do good and create jobs. We need high taxes for social welfare programs, to provide for the poor. We can’t afford to cut taxes.
    Relevant function: Extroverted Thinking
    Likely in favor by: ESTJ, ENTJ, ISTJ, INTJ

    5 Super Short Stories To Creep You Out

    Published by:

    My New Doggie!

    by Ratfink333

    I went to the animal shelter a couple weeks ago and adopted a beautiful young golden retriever. He’s the smartest dog I’ve ever met. Within days, he knew “sit,” “stay,” and “roll over.” I even taught him the old trick where you make a gun with your hand and say “bang,” and he rolls onto his back and plays dead. The problem is, dogs are much better with hand signals than voice cues, so now, as soon as I make a finger gun, he rolls over onto his back and eagerly looks at me for his treat.

    I’m sitting on the couch watching a movie in the dark and my puppy is on the hardwood floor in front of me, chewing on his new toy. He looks up towards me, pauses, then rolls onto his back, his tongue out and begging for a treat. I realize he’s looking over my head, beyond the couch. The floor behind me creaks.

    Mister Nobody

    By IPostAtMidnight

    Everyone knew Cassie. She was a friendly child, sure, but I think the neighborhood knew her because she knew us. She was the reason our block felt like a family.

    “Girl’s got second sight,” Alletta Johnson would proclaim from her window perch.

    I’ve never believed in such things, but I’ll admit Cassie had a gift. To her, Alletta Johnson was “Miss Grandma,” while the girl who drove the ice cream truck was “Miss Dog Doctor.” Our mailman was “Mister Painter.” She played hopscotch and jump-rope with kids she’d dubbed “Singer,” “Teacher,” and “Fireman.”

    I asked her about all the nicknames once, and from what I could understand they came from how she saw people—as potential. She didn’t exactly see our futures, she just saw us at our ideal.

    “Everybody glows, Mister Writer,” she told me. “Everybody’s good.”

    I’d never told anyone I wanted to write. It was a secret dream, not one I’d let myself take seriously. Yet somehow, she saw it in me. That’s how she saw all of us.

    One afternoon I was cooling off on my front stoop when she skipped down the sidewalk with a stranger at her side. She had obviously enchanted him, just like everyone else. We smiled and waved, and as they passed I asked, “Who’s your friend, Cassie?”

    She paused, tilting her head in confusion before exclaiming, “Oh! You’re being writery, Mister Writer!”

    I should’ve paid more attention as she laughed and twirled off down the street, followed by the stranger. I should’ve realized.

    Cassie always saw the good in people.

    Cassie could only see the good in people.

    But not everybody is good.

    What they don’t tell you about the dead

    by Crimsai

    I don’t want to sound mean, but the dead are pretty clueless. I’ve always seen them. When I was younger everyone thought I was just talking to imaginary friends. After a couple years, when I overheard my parents talk about calling a psychologist, I realised what I was talking to. See, ghosts don’t tend to realise they’re dead, and they don’t look like in the movies, they look just like us.

    I’m pretty smart for a 13 year old, so I started noticing certain patterns to tell them apart from the living. They could be a bit distant from living people, or you’d see them try to talk to people who wouldn’t even notice them. Some of them could tell I was different, that I noticed them. Like this guy I saw after school yesterday. I’m a big boy now, see, I don’t need my parents to pick me up, home is just a short walk away. He was standing away from the other parents, didn’t talk to them, just stared at me, that’s how I knew he was one of the ghosts. I went over, told him I knew what he was and asked how I could help him. I don’t remember much after that, I think because of what happened this morning.

    Downstairs, my parents were crying. I tried talking to them but they ignored me. They must have died last night somehow, sometimes the new ghosts wouldn’t talk to me. Some police officers and reporters just arrived, they won’t talk to me either, just my parents. It’s weird, I’ve never seen so many ghosts together before. Why won’t anyone talk to me?

    Behind Closed Doors

    by Lillpi

    The neighbor was a weird man, he was reclusive and never really spoke to anyone. Tom liked to scare me by saying he must be a murderer, that he always kept to himself so people wouldn’t catch on. I didn’t like the jokes and would tell him off, the neighbor was probably just shy. Although I got mad at the jokes I had to admit, the neighbor did make me uncomfortable. Tom worked a mix of day and night shifts, tonight happened to be one of his night shifts, I don’t like the idea of being home alone at night, everything seems more sinister but I tend to shake these feelings by watching some TV and going to bed.

    I was jolted awake by a loud noise, maybe Tom had come home? I looked at my clock and saw it was 2:30 in the morning. Panic rose, my mind was racing and I didn’t know what to think, there was only two facts that kept repeating in my mind; Tom didn’t finish work till 6 and that noise came from inside the house. I quickly looked out the second storey bedroom window to the drive way below in case he did come back early, his car wasn’t there but what I saw made my blood run cold, it was my neighbor breaking into my house. I grabbed my phone and called the police. I waited in my room, too scared to go downstairs and prayed the police would come in time. They did, they caught him.

    I was still in my bedroom, watching from my window as they took him to the car, he was struggling and screaming, he really was a mad man. “You don’t understand!” He yelled ” I saw someone else go in the house!” as my brain was processing his meaning I heard my bedroom door shut behind me.

    The President is Human

    by OsoBrazos

    Philip started the video clip as soon as Rose closed the door to the editing bay. Charlie Clark, the newly elected President’s head speech writer moved on screen. He was familiar to the small group in the sound-proof room; he had worked at their news station for three years before taking his current position in November of 2016. He was dressed nicely and spoke eloquently enough, but his hands betrayed his nerves. He kept running fingers through his hair, straightening his tie, and sipping water.

    “…and, unlike the President, I can say whatever I want,” Charlie quipped onscreen to the laughter of the assembled journalists. “But seriously, the goal of a speech writer is not to tell the President how he feels – we are not in danger of running the world accidentally – it’s to put the President’s feelings, the feelings he was elected to have, into the perfect words.

    “Say the President is fuming over a human rights violation. The President is human, he’s allowed to be angry. In fact, he’s so angry his commendable diction slips. It’s my job to craft a statement that encapsulates the President’s anger – is the verbal embodiment of his sense of injustice – so he can deliver that to the world.”

    Philip stopped the video and spoke. “As the Secret Service led us away from this conference, one of them pressed a paper into my hand. It was a code Charlie and I used as war correspondents in Afghanistan. It says the phrases made when he touched his tie were false.”

    Philip played those segments. “I can say whatever I want.” “We are not in danger.” “The President is human.”

    INFJ: I will fall in love when I can find someone who is equal to me in both passion and intellect.

    Horoscopes For Each Myers Briggs Type

    Published by:

    via deviantart
    via deviantart

    “miss neo-america” by Nocturny

    INTP 

    For you, this month will be better than last month but not as good as the month before that. If you are single, someone special may enter your life but you will soon run them away with your weird aura. No one gets you. You will find yourself dwelling more than usual on your past mistakes, humiliations and failures as well as the recent fresh ones. You will beat yourself up and feel like slitting your wrists with Hallmark cards. Don’t do it. Hang in there; your depression will dissipate once you discover your newest obsession: analyzing Natalie Portman movies!

    INTJ

    Your patience will be paper thin this month. Normally it is like poster board but now it will be more like tissue paper. In the mean time, try to stay low key and avoid answering the phone. You’re especially paranoid during this period and probably owe the government thousands in back taxes. For now, you will need to retreat to your underground bunker until you can get your shit together. Your cache  of bottled water and Top Ramen may be running low so don’t forget to replenish your stock. Tonight: treat yourself to an invigorating colon cleanse.

    ENTP

    As an ENTP, you are adept at seeing things from other’s perspective. This month, you will want to take this a step further by changing your gender just to understand what it’s like to have boobs or balls. You will soon after change your mind and opt instead to simply cross-dress. A wise alternative. This month, a spirit of entrepreneurship will overtake you. You will be compelled to stop binge-watching Breaking Bad and finally start your own business selling meth door to door. Unfortunately, you will later be robbed at sword point and end up having to turn tricks on the streets to make ends meet.

    ENTJ

    Love is in the air! You’ve had your eye on a special someone for some time and now you need to make your move! Show them how much you care by giving them an erotic pat down! While wearing a TSA uniform of course. Offer to do their taxes, or draw a tasteful nude portrait of them. Even if they are not impressed by your artistic prowess, they will likely be flattered by your effort and passion. Tonight: reward yourself with a hearty bowl of soup.

    INFP

    You normally don’t take any shit from people but this month you may have to take a piece or two. Try to maintain grace under fire and don’t let others get under your skin. It’s important to have a support system so connect with friends and family as well as your pets. Invest in your self development with challenging challenges. Buy a cat and potty train it. See if you can teach it to cook soup for you, or fetch your slippers like a dog would. Dare to be great; set new precedents and secure your place in the annals of history.

    INFJ

    You have a winsome smile thanks to your excellent teeth. This month however, look out: cavities and gingivitis are knocking at your door. Your gummy bear addiction is starting to take it’s toll on your oral welfare and corrective action will need to be taken. Try to curb your enthusiasm for confections and incorporate more sugar free and aspartame-free gum into your diet. Now is the time to branch out and be adventurous. Tonight: experiment with a different brand of shampoo and sprinkle cinnamon on your chest for good luck.

    ENFP

    You love to love, but mainly you like to argue. Personal indecision means you can’t make up your mind about anything, and while in most social situations you are happy going with the flow, your main aim is to find a partner and then to get them home. Once there you abuse them mercilessly, in time driving peaceful people to violence by never agreeing with anything they say, always defending the opposite of what your last point should have been. Eventually others are forced to clarify your angle for you, while you can always blame them for the upset meanwhile.

    ENFJ

    This month you will discover you have an astonishing ability to communicate with animals. You spend many hours looking in the mirror. In fact you like to look at yourself looking in the mirror, because that’s where your two faces come in hugely useful. You adore telling one person one thing and another something else, while doing something totally different altogether, all at the same time. You pretend to be carefree, but underneath calculate the cost benefit of every association. You’re so full of complexes you don’t know who you are, while everybody soon reaches the same conclusion, once they have endured your moods and unreliability for long enough.

    ISFJ

    You are charming and persuasive, especially when you want something or you’re out to make a good impression, and particularly with people you don’t know very well. In private you are miserable, bad-tempered and often vicious with your family, since inside your home and round those who know you better, you don’t care whatever you say. You are snappy, crabby and unapproachable, especially first thing in the morning, when you haven’t eaten, or if you’ve just come home from a hard day at the shops. You have a name for nurturing but really, you simply can’t let go.

    ISTJ

    You are unoriginal and typical, believing rules are meant to be followed and that pretty much, no one can do whatever they want. Providing you weren’t expecting company then probably you’re right, but you’ll find many fading in their commitment once they are living in the fallout of such an elemental force. In truth, you wouldn’t tolerate this kind of restrictive behavior yourself from anybody else, so you can’t expect others to take it back from you, either. If you’re ready to go it alone then that’s fine, but for emotional support or reassurance, it’ll always be a case of bringing your own…

    ESFJ

    You like to think you are helpful and performing some kind of service, as you give everyone the benefit of your unwarranted advice. You can’t understand why they say you are moaning, nagging or sticking your nose where it isn’t wanted, as you make unwelcome suggestions on all sorts of things you apparently know nothing about. But for many, even your usual round of bitching is better than having you witter on about your health. For someone who talks so much about leading a healthy lifestyle, it’s weird how often there is some new sickness to complain about…

    ESTJ

    You are naturally cold-hearted so don’t usually need to try, but you still always do your utmost not to let silly feelings or emotions cloud that important issue, your cash. If something serves no material purpose you’ll eliminate it from your life, so Fido is encouraged to play with the traffic once veterinary bills start to figure and Grandma is away to the old folks home once her will is rewritten in your favor. Friends are superfluous unless they pay you, assist your aims or give you something for free. Obviously you don’t have many of them, but then again, why should you care?

    ISFP

    Dopey, Bashful and Sleepy weren’t just three of the seven dwarves, they’re also great descriptions of your frequent and ruinous mood swings. These are plentiful, since as a wet and slippery fish, you regularly change your persona to fit in with present company. At times you are Grumpy, often for no real reason and on occasion you’re Sneezy, since you are prone to allergies and to a spectrum of psychosomatic issues and complaints. Rarely are you Happy, though people often call you the Doc, largely due to the medication necessary to get yourself through each day.

    ISTP

    You enjoy an intense emotional life behind what you believe is your cool and inscrutable facade. However, you are simply going over the same old things, without ever noticeably moving forwards, or getting anything sorted out. Far from appearing calm and collected, others believe you look distinctly dubious, plus they’ve noticed how vengeful you are, how easy it is to upset you and how you always have an issue over something or another. Scorpio links with passion and with sex, but real intimacy looks utterly impossible, when you are this screwed up inside yourself.

    ESFP

    You are the sultan of spin. Your abilities are limited but you’re extremely vocal about them and you never waste a chance to make yourself look talented or clever. Thus you gain advantage over those with more flair but greater modesty and suffer forever after with crippling pangs of insecurity, since you know how tenuous and reliant on bluster your grip on your supposed position plainly is. You are a hypocrite and you don’t practice what you preach. Claiming freedom and equal opportunities, you wouldn’t help anybody you felt afraid, was clearly heaps better than you.

    ESTP

    You think you are the best at everything and you don’t care who you trample in your hurry to show off. You worm your way into a position of trust with a mask of generosity, affability and bumbling incompetence, and it isn’t until too late that others find out for themselves, just how ruthless and naked your ambitions manifestly are. Inside you lack courage and confidence, so you choose limited situations to move in on, where you believe that you can easily shine. After all, it is better being a big fish in a small pond than paddling in the ocean, with your vulnerabilities so apparent.

    10 Odd Things Donald Trump Has Said and Done

    Published by:

    http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2016/04/02/donald-trump-s-4-hour-sleep-habit-could-explain-his-personality.html

    Whether you are for him or against him, most would agree that Donald Trump is an unusual character with the traits of a good entrepreneur. His unconventional and polarizing rhetoric has earned him popularity but also a reputation wrought with controversy and political incorrectness. He says and does a lot of risky things but as we often see, it tends to work in his favor.

    10. He Insisted It’s an Advantage Being A Black Man

    In an interview from 1989, Trump has stated that he believed a well educated black man actually has an edge in the job market today. He tells the interviewer “I’ve said on occasion, even about myself, if I were starting off today I would love to be a well-educated black because I really believe they do have an actual advantage today.”

    Trump’s remark was likely in reference to affirmative action laws that many would argue forces businesses to seek diversity for diversity’s sake rather than the strength of merit alone. Actor and director Spike Lee later slammed Trump’s comments as “garbage” and “craziness.”




    9. He likes to comment on his daughter’s anatomy.

    In 1994, Donald and his then wife Marla Maples appeared on an episode of “Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous”. When host Robin Leach, asked about the qualities Trump’s newborn daughter Tiffany shared with her parents, Trump responded saying “She’s a very beautiful baby, she’s got Marla’s legs. We don’t know whether or not *puts hands on his chest to indicate breasts* she’s got this part yet, but time will tell.”

    Trump has caught more attention for his off-color commentary about daughter Ivanka in another TV appearance. When asked whether his daughter would ever consider posing for Playboy magazine, he infamously replied, “I don’t think Ivanka would do that inside the magazine, although she does have a very nice figure. I’ve said that if Ivanka weren’t my daughter, perhaps, I would be dating her.”

     

    8. He’s a Germaphobe

    https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/to-your-health/wp/2015/09/04/trump-is-right-shaking-hands-is-a-welcome-mat-for-germs/?utm_term=.721faf527d66

    via washingtonpost.com

    No, he’s not scared of Germans (presumably). But he does apparently have an abiding fear of getting his hands dirty. In his 1997 book, “The Art of the Comeback,” he wrote that shaking hands is “one of the curses of American society. … I happen to be a clean hands freak. I feel much better after I thoroughly wash my hands, which I do as much as possible.”

    His aversion to germs might explain why he doesn’t own any known pets. He could be the first POTUS in 150 years not to have one in the White House.

    7. He sends Pictures of his Hands to people.

    http://people.com/celebrity/donald-trump-sends-vanity-fair-editor-photos-of-his-hands/

    via people.com

    Many would recall the low brow, school-yard insults that were exchanged between Trump and other incumbents at the RNC debates. Marco Rubio’s remarks about Trump’s hand size in particular seemed to have struck a nerve with the Donald. Defending the magnitude of his meathooks is not new to Trump however. Apparently he has been trying to convince an editor at Vanity Fair of his hand girth for the last 25 years.

    Graydon Carter is a journalist who claimed that after writing an article in which he called Trump a “short-fingered vulgarian,” began receiving envelopes in the mail containing photos of Trump with his hands circled in gold sharpie. Also written in gold Sharpie: ‘See, not so short!’ Carter called it “a valiant effort to highlight the length of his fingers.”

    6. Trump Views Excercise As A Waste of Energy

    http://www.nydailynews.com/news/politics/photos-show-trump-military-garb-dodging-draft-article-1.2298248

    via nydailynews.com

    It might surprise you to know that Trump in his hayday was actually quite athletic. At some point however, Trump apparently decided that athletics and exercise were not a worthwhile use of his time.

    In a book titled “Trump Revealed”, Washington Post writers Michael Kranish and Marc Fisher claimed that Trump thought exercise permanently sapped him of energy. “Trump believed the human body was like a battery, with a finite amount of energy, which exercise only depleted. So he didn’t work out”. Trump reportedly even told a colleague training for an Iron man Triathalon “You are going to die young because of this.”

    5. He’s A Bit Hypocritical About Alcohol.

    Donald Trump has publicly stated that he doesn’t drink, smoke or do drugs and has even put out a message to kids enjoining them to do the same. In interviews he has disclosed that his late brother’s struggle with alcohol heavily influenced his reluctance to use drugs.

    This however, didn’t stop him from trying to profit from those who do. In 2006, Trump launched his own brand of spirit called Trump Vodka with the tagline “success distilled”. His foray into the alcohol industry was not a success though, and the line was discontinued in 2011.  Trump has admitted to the irony of his involvement in the alcohol business telling an interviewer in 2005 “I sort of hated doing it,” and proposed he would “…donate any and all money that I make from alcoholic beverages to Mothers Against Drunk Drivers (MADD) [sic]”.

     

    4. He Seems to Function on Very Little Sleep

    http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2016/04/02/donald-trump-s-4-hour-sleep-habit-could-explain-his-personality.html

    via thedailybeast

    During the 2016 presidential campaign, Trump has made sport of his political competitors with comical insults that often framed them in a pitiable light. Trump would also brag what little sleep he needed (anywhere from 90 minutes to 4 hours according to him) and regularly made a point of comparing his energetic pep and activity levels with that of the other presidential hopefuls. On the campaign trail he once said to a crowd in Illinois, “You know, I’m not a big sleeper. I like three hours, four hours, I toss, I turn, I beep-de-beep, I want to find out what’s going on.”

    If what he is claiming is true, it may be he is of a rare breed of individuals who possess the “efficient sleeper” gene. People who carry it seem to function perfectly on very little sleep without detriment to their health. This may be one of the common character traits of successful entrepreneurs.

    3. He’s Repulsed By Bodily Functions

    During a 2011 deposition, Trump reportedly called a lawyer “disgusting” after she began milking herself in the courtroom (using a breast pump). According to her, Trump immediately lost his bearing, “He got up, his face got red, he shook his finger at me and he screamed, ‘You’re disgusting, you’re disgusting,’ and he ran out of there.”

    Trump’s lactation-intolerance was just a glimpse of his apparently greater distaste for bodily discharge. He called Hillary Clinton’s use of the bathroom “disgusting”, Chris Cristie’s eating habits “disgusting”, Marco Rubio’s fop sweat “disgusting”. At home, he and his wife Melania use separate but equal bathrooms.

     

    2. He Doesn’t Feel His Town’s Big Enough for Two Trumps

    http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/michael-moore-protests-trump-tower-849783

    via hollywoodreporter

    There is little dispute as to the importance of the “Trump” name in the Donald’s business which is largely built on branding. Especially since Trump has earned much of his money through licensing.

    So in 1984 when two South African developers named Eddie and Jules Trump began purchasing real estate around NYC as The Trump Group, Donald saw this as an infringement that could not be allowed to stand. He sought legal action against them but lost the case. He did however succeed in having their trademark revoked in 1988.

    That same year, Trump tried to bring down the legal hammer once again on a different company, who in this case was selling business cards dubbed “Trump Cards”. The two parties eventually struck a deal they were happy with. In exchange for royalties and the rights to the trademark, the company could continue selling the cards and Trump agreed to endorse them.

     

    1. Trump Believes Asbestos Would Have Saved The Twin Towers

    http://www.foxnews.com/story/2001/09/14/asbestos-could-have-saved-wtc-lives.html

    via i.imgur.com

    Since the 1970s, the use of asbestos and asbestos-containing products has been carefully regulated due to it’s carcinogenic health risks. It was once added to flame-retardant sprays used to insulate steel building materials.  Alternative flame-proofing materials are available but in Trump’s opinion,
    asbestos is “the greatest fire-proofing material ever used.”

    In 2012 he tweeted, “If we didn’t remove incredibly powerful fire retardant asbestos & replace it with junk that doesn’t work, the World Trade Center would never have burned down.” He has even gone so far as claiming that the hysteria over asbestos has been propaganda generated by the mafia, stating that it was often mob-related companies that would handle the asbestos removal.

    How Each Myers Briggs Type Sabotages Themselves

    Published by:

    http://thesamelie.deviantart.com/art/The-Long-Road-478441979
    http://thesamelie.deviantart.com/art/The-Long-Road-478441979

    “The Long Road” by caitlin-may

    INTP + ISTP


    SOCIAL SUICIDE


    The anxiety, awkwardness and rejection they’ve  experienced socially can drive the INTP/ISTP away from people causing them to miss out on opportunities to form meaningful connections with others. Their past embarrassments and moments of ineptitude may burrow deep into their psyche and lead the INTP/ISTP to capitulate and simply embrace their interpersonal inadequacy as part of the hand of cards they’ve been dealt. Unfortunately, when the INTP/ISTP eventually meets people who truly appreciate them for who they are they may have difficulty relinquishing the safety of their emotional isolationism. They may fear opening themselves up to a great relationship because they have wired themselves to anticipate disappointment.




    INTJ + INFJ


    Not Being in the Moment


    INTJs and INFJs are often so preoccupied with their personal goals and agenda that they tend to forget to stop and smell the roses and appreciate the moment. INTJ/INFJs are very future oriented often due to their malcontent with their current circumstances. They can spend a vast amount of time inside their heads pondering and planning the next project or experiment and focused on taking the next step in the progression of some larger scheme. As a result, the beauty of the fleeting present moments often go unnoticed or ignored while in pursuit of their goals. Down the road, the INTJ/INFJ may look back and wish they enjoyed the journey a little more.





    ENTP + ENFP


     Reinventing the wheel


    ENTPs and ENFPs are wantonly irreverent of tradition and stodgy customs. They may dismiss established modalities and systems for the sake of finding their own way of doing things. This may cause them to needlessly reinvent something that’s already existing or readily available even if is “old”. It is advantageous to learn from and embrace the useful bits from the past. Rather than disregard long standing traditions in wholesale as part of an obsolescent monolith, ENTP/ENFPs ought to examine their value and utilize them when it makes sense.




    ENTJ + ESTJ


    REFUSING TO BE HELPED


    ENTJs and ESTJs prize personal strength, independence and self reliance. They do not actively seek help from others because they believe in themselves and also they want to feel empowered and in control as much as possible. As a leader of a a team, they have no problem delegating and appropriating resources in the form of people to accomplish a group task. However in their personal lives, ENTJ/ESTJs prefer not to receive outside assistance with areas in which they may be struggling. They may not even acknowledge that they have a problem and may resist intervention by others who care about them.




    INFP + ISFP


    Procrastination


    When it comes to self-sabotage, procrastination is king. Why? Because procrastination is the gap between intention and action, and it is in this gap that the self operates. The undermining behavior lies in not closing the gap. INFP/ISFPs make an intention to act, but when the time comes, get lost in their own deliberation, making excuses to justify an unnecessary and potentially harmful delay.  They want to be organized and efficient, but are totally disorganized. INFP/ISFPs hate schedules and trying to keep to them wears them out. They can see that things are not working but don’t know how to fix them and get angry at themselves for being so disorganized.




    ENFJ + ESFJ


    SABOTAGING RELATIONSHIPS


    ENFJ/ESFJs have difficulty in being objective and developing a consistent standard unhampered by petty social allegiances. Their lack of internal self knowledge and self awareness opens them up to behaviors such as jealousy, possessiveness, emotional manipulation, neediness, violence and so forth.  They want to objectively understand other people, but discussing them in impersonal terms makes ENFJ/ESFJs feel uneasy and cold. They hate using impersonal logic or leverage against others. They want to ensure that they do things “right,” and must learn to step back from other people and situations and analyze them freely, without feeling like a traitor.




    ISFJ + ISTJ


    Reluctance to Try New Things


    ISFJ/ISTJs don’t like discussing things that have nothing to do with reality. They want to know that the conversation is going to accomplish something before they engage in it or they will become frustrated. Sometimes, they get a sense of what is going on between other people and are later proven right, but they are not always sure at the time that what they are picking up on is the truth. It can be difficult for ISFJ/ISTJs to make decisions that will impact the future, because they’re not sure what that future looks like … any of sixteen things might happen. They shy away from long-term commitments unless they feel absolutely safe; otherwise, they’re inclined to worry about what might happen. They can be impulsive once in awhile and others at times comment on how naive some of their belief systems are.




    ESFP + ESTP


    Not Planning Ahead

    ESFP/ESTPs thrive on action and getting immediate results. They are confident in their ability to adapt and respond to whatever life throws at them and as a result, they do not often concern themselves with long term planning. Their lack of patience seeks instant gratification and they are excellent improvisers but they may become suddenly discomfited by obstacles that they failed to anticipate or prepare for. They kind of hate introspecting, it seems a dangerous enterprise.  They prefer things that are symbolic or archetypal… and they come up with some crackpot theories at times with a tendency to be a little superstitious.

    INTP/ISTP Inferior Fe Subtypes | mbti-info

    Published by:

    via deviantart

    INFERIOR FE SUBTYPES

    mbti-info:

    1) the confidently eccentric inferior Fe: You maybe used to care what people think about you, but you don’t anymore. And even if you did, they probably wouldn’t like you anyway. You might as well be as weird as you want. Social skills- why bother.

    2) the quintessential nerd/gamer/goth/anime freak/computer geek: A lot of people consider themselves to be these things, but for you it’s an identity and a way of fitting in to compensate for not being able to fit in with normal people. You’ve found your niche, and you see no need to get out of your comfort zone. Social skills? I’ll socialize with people like me.

    3) the sociopath: Fe? Fi? Who needs feeling? Feeling is for the weak. Morals and ethics are completely irrelevant. All I need is cold, calculated logic, and with it I will rule the world.

    4) the brainiac philosopher: Knowledge is everything. Thinking is your hobby. You have an argument for everything, and will argue with anyone at any time over anything at all. You will frequently play the devil’s advocate and even argue something you don’t believe just to be a smart ass. Social skills are irrelevant, since most people aren’t intelligent enough to have a conversation with anyway. It’s not that you use Fe inappropriately perse, you just kind of ignore it in favor of thinking about how smart you are. Now if only you could take to heart what Socrates said about the wise man knowing that he knows nothing…

    5) the stalker inferior Fe: Inside you don’t really think anyone should like you, and you’ve probably had no friends for most of your life. So if someone shows any interest in you, you latch onto them like a leech. They are your New Best Friend or your love obsession. You secretly crave attention and human connection so much that it’s like a drug, and you think if this person were to leave you, you wouldn’t find anyone else who likes you for a long time; so this person must be special, since they actually pay attention to you. Try raising your self esteem, and getting out of your comfort zone to develop some social skills.

    6) the emotional inferior Fe: You are very concerned with what people think of you, and are sensitive to rejection. In fact, you are sensitive to a lot of things. You don’t really know how to deal with emotions, and they burst out of you inappropriately. You often get mistaken for a feeling type. You really want people to like you. You’re trying to develop social skills, but you overcompensate.

    7) the righteously indignant inferior Fe: You’ve been treated unfairly, and you’re going to say something about it. So have your peers, and you will defend them. In fact, you are a member of several oppressed minorities. You see it as your job to fight societal injustice and live as uniquely as you want. You are very rebellious and argumentative, and kind of naively idealistic. You also sometimes get mistaken for a feeling type. You have developed Fe in service to your beliefs, but your social skills are variable.

    8) the pothead: I dunno, man. It’s all good. Life is mysterious and complex. Take it easy. Get laid. Your Fe doesn’t really cause you problems, but you’ve kind of dulled your Ti with all the pot you’ve smoked. Which can turn out to be a good thing, because you’ve learned to relax and not over think everything. You actually seem human. You probably have excellent social skills.

    9) the cute and perky inferior Fe: You happen to have a charming personality and a great sense of humor. You like people, and want to be popular. You are mostly cute because of your lack of social skills. Maybe when you were younger people used to make fun of you, but you would always just laugh along with them, and pretty soon they liked you. When you make a social blunder, you do it in a cute and funny way. After all, taking life seriously leads to suffering. Occasionally you are mistaken for an extrovert, even though you might actually be very shy. Most people like you.

    10) the healthy and functional, well developed inferior Fe: You have learned how to develop your Fe over the years. You can convince most people that you are actually normal. You have a lot of friends, and most people like you. You’ve learned how to balance your intellect with your intuition, and are in touch with your emotions. You are able to effectively use whichever judging function a situation calls for. You have a comfortable sense of values and ethics, and under your detached exterior, you have a heart. Good job!

    The Major Vice of Each Myers Briggs Type

    Published by:

    via deviantart.com

    “Pills And Threeways 2” by hakanphotography

    INTP


    Vice: Caffeine


    INTPs are susceptible to becoming amphetamine junkies. They love caffeine because it fuels and even amplifies their stamina and focus for reading writing thinking and creating. They lurk the inter-webs at all hours hopping from website to website sifting through endless pages to satisfy their never-ending scatterbrained appetite for information. They should really get to bed but before they know it, it’s 1 AM. They go to school or work and use their caffeinated beverage of choice to get them through the day but at night their overstimulated nervous system won’t allow them to fall asleep even if they tried. Thus continues the cycle, of caffeine addiction. It may take an intervention from their loved ones before INTPs are able to break their habit only to relapse a couple weeks later.


    INTJ


    Vice: Trying to Takeover the world


    INTJs brood about the future and what they can do to ensure theirs is a successful one. They bury themselves in their work, preoccupied with testing and experimenting with the litany of ideas hatched by their Ni. They want some notoriety or at least something to show for their efforts. They tolerate what they need to and many of them learn to put on a social face to get along and integrate with other earthlings. Underneath their agreeable social mask however, is a power hungry monster who fantasizes about world domination. They want to be in the captain’s chair making the decisions, with a crew of capable peasants to answer their every beck and call. Fortunately, most INTJs are quite competent and would make excellent controllers …err, I mean leaders.



    ENTP


    Vice: Toying with people


    ENTPs make sport of poking holes in other people’s arguments. They may also get a rise out of testing boundaries with people which may extend to their romantic relationships. They can be like sociopaths when they try to see what they can get away with; how good they are at pulling the sheep’s wool over people. It takes some cunning, a little cleverness to deceive others; a challenge they are likely to find appealing. It would be a testament to their brilliance if they can have their cake and eat it too. Feelings may get hurt along the way but the drama makes for great story telling later.



    ENTJ


    Vice: Scheming and connivery


    ENTJs in their blind ambition may be tempted to dance with their dark side. They have the ability to draw up a plan that will fatten their wallets or rig the system in their favor. Some may develop an interest in magic and become skilled in the art of misdirection and manipulation. ENTJs are well suited as grifters or magicians such as Penn Jillette who uses an astute insight into human behavior to construct clever machinations designed to get the best of other people. ENTJs would also make excellent crime bosses with an ability to orchestrate an elaborate scheme and get away with it, at least for a while. Charles Ponzi, the notorious father of the titular Ponzi scheme, was likely an ENTJ. Fortunately most ENTJs direct their energy into more honest professions.



    INFP


    Vice: Staying up until the wee hours


    A lot of INFPs are vampiric night owls. Many of them come alive only in the after hours when the sun is done shining it’s awful light. They are liable to be bookworms and book sluts who can read all night when they really ought to be catching some restorative shuteye. Don’t be surprised to find them in bed getting cozy with a copy of Moby Dick or snuggling under the sheets with some good Charles D. (Dickens) to keep them company. Be it books or movies or youtube videos, INFPs can almost always find some distraction to delay their slumber. They are avid consumers of fiction and many indulge in the creation of their own.



    INFJ


    Vice: Perfectionism


    Perfectionism is a vain pursuit that sometimes does more harm than good. Many INFJs strive for it with excellent results but in the process place a lot of undue stress on themselves. They can be very hard on themselves in their effort to live up to their ideals and sense of purpose in the world. They derive a lot of pride from their work viewing it as a reflection on them and what they stand for. INFJs can be very impassioned and they channel their ardor and vision to produce something remarkable, beautiful and inspiring. But they can sometimes get caught up in their lofty standards to the point of becoming prima donnas and self-entitled drama kings/queens.



    ENFP


    Vice: Drinking & Smoking


    ENFPs carry an edgy libertine aura consistent with most creative people. Naturally, many of them are likely to pick up bad habits in the way of smoking and or drinking alcohol  often for the aura of machismo or “coolness” it exudes. They know it’s bad for them but they look so cool doing it and so it becomes a part of their self-image as well as a social lubricant. On the plus side, they likely will experience many amusing and comical situations that they will later share as stories.



    ENFJ


    Vice: Obstinance


    ENFJs are not perfect though they may try to be. They may have a self-righteous streak where they become convinced of the correctness of their beliefs and closed off to alternative view points. They can be inflexible on certain matters and issues and unwilling to bend or compromise. They may wantonly flout admonishments from others whether through outright or passive-aggressive dismissal.



    ISFJ


    Vice: Complaining & Cowardice


    ISFJs are often the squeaky wheels in need of oil. They seem ever-ready to voice concerns or grievances over things both real or imagined. Although responsible and sedulous, when it comes to problems, it sometimes seems as though they enjoy complaining about them more than solving them. Also, they are generally not so open to branching out of the comfort zones to challenge themselves. They doubt themselves too much and often avoid having to learn new skills or tackle tasks that look to daunting for them. It is mostly in their head and they would benefit from adopting a more positive and confident attitude.



    ISTJ


    Vice: Collecting Things


    ISTJs are misers with an affinity for coupons and rebates. The expression “a penny saved is a penny earned” was probably coined by them (pun intended). When they were young many ISTJs probably collected seashells, or rocks later graduating to collecting butterflies and coins. They also like collecting old things like commemorative stamps, $2 bills, rare baseball cards, autographed memorabilia and the like. They’re very fond of antiques and items with historical significance such as an unopened bottle of wine excavated from the titanic or the pair of undies Buzz Aldrin wore during the moon landing. ISTJs with abundant income may likely be found at auction houses bidding on useless objects worth a fortune.



    ESFJ


    Vice: Scuttlebutt


    ESFJs are friendly and personable individuals but two-faced as well. They love the rumor mill gossip and they shamelessly engage in water-cooler gab about all the latest in other people’s business. Their loyalties are with their friends whether right or wrong. However, some of their companions may wonder if their ESFJ friend ever talks about them behind their back. ESFJs think nothing of it when they blather about people and people is all they really talk about in general. They aren’t interested in discussing impersonal topics like the intellectual INTP or ENTP. ESFJs are unabashedly superficial and can hardly resist juicy drama.



    ESTJ


    Vice: Sadism


    ESTJs enjoying busting balls whether or not they possess a pair of their own. They are sometimes too strict and domineering and can clash with others especially intuitive perceiving types. ESTJs may be the ones who appreciate hierarchical structures the most, especially when they are at the top of it. The reins of power feel comfortable in their hands and they may derive a sadistic pleasure from pushing their underlings to the limit, mushing them like sleigh dogs. All the while insisting they are the just and fair arbiters of what is good and right.



    ISFP


    Vice: Debauchery


    ISFPs are heathens with a wild side to them that belies their placid and friendly demeanor.  They may appear shy but they have a sensual and stimulus-seeking nature that can get them into trouble. They can really cut loose when they unleash the party animal inside them and they have the capacity to be very impulsive, going wherever the mood takes them. This means lots of risky behavior and mischievous exploits including raunchy sexual escapades. It sounds sensational until someone ends up in an ambulance or behind bars.



    ISTP


    Vice: Mind-altering substances


    ISTPs like to engage their senses with weird stimuli. If they can get that sensation from a schedule 1 drug then all the better. They are open to experimenting with things that they think may expand their minds and enlarge their perspectives or simply get their endorphins going. They may even become an uncertified expert in pharmaceuticals, becoming very knowledgeable about various substances like psychadelics and hallucinogens. This recreational use can run awry when ISTPs attempt to self-medicate to alleviate their emotional problems or stress in general. A better therapy would be exercise and physical activity which they also enjoy.



    ESFP


    Vice: Vanity


    ESFPs can be a little too into themselves and may be preoccupied with superficial concerns relating to their attractiveness and popularity. Their sense of value is tied up in their image of how interesting and exciting a person they are. They want to be the life of the party and the center of attention. To do that, they feel the need to be either really funny or good looking or unpredictable and attention grabbing. They want to stand out as unique and fascinating and are most content when they feel admired and loved. They may feel threatened by other attention seekers who seek after the same glory. This often leads to jealousy and petty acts of vindictiveness or even depression and feelings of worthlessness.



    ESTP


    Vice: Exorbitant Spending


    ESTPs can be very materialistic or simply immoderate in their purchases. When they were young they were likely athletic and lean but gradually turned into a fatso with age. They enjoy the good things in life like fine cuisine and deep-tissue massages. If they are wealthy, they no doubt take great pride in their earning power and do not resist showing it off with their expensive property and possessions. They may shell out extra cash to make an impression or just to demonstrate that they have the power to do so. ESTPs don’t mind splurging on themselves and their loved ones but at the same time they do not take it lightly. It is not “easy come easy go” when it comes to finances but they are often skilled enough in the management of it that they are able to get away with a sumptuous lifestyle.

    10 Killers Who Didn’t Eat Meat

    Published by:

    http://www.deviantart.com/art/Murder-86038951

    “Murder” by Spirit-of-Dusk via deviantart

    Many murderers are reviled for their depravity and brutality. Such individuals are often incapable of feeling compassion or empathy for their victims and so then it may seem paradoxical that some killers would be opposed to the consumption of meat. Whether for ethical or health reasons these 10 killers abstained from eating dead animals yet had no reservations about slaughtering humans.

    10. William MacDonald

    http://www.couriermail.com.au/news/queensland/the-mutilator-dead-at-90-william-macdonald-who-cut-off-victims-genitalia-was-nsws-longestserving-prisoner/news-story/79932bce3773f5f8e2d5dd091c4163d5

    via couriermail.com

    MacDonald was a vegetarian who loved classical music and is credited as Australia’s first true serial killer. During the 1960s he terrorized the city of Sydney and was dubbed the “Sydney Mutilator” drawing comparisons to Jack the Ripper due to the gruesome manner in which he killed his victims. He targeted riffraffs and wastrels who he would lure with alcohol and then subsequently slaughtered them. He murdered and mutilated 4 men with a hunting knife, taking one victim’s genitals home in a paper bag before throwing them off the Harbor Bridge. He was eventually caught, convicted and sentenced to life. It was later found that MacDonald was raped by a corporal while he was in the military and as a teen had been diagnosed with schizophrenia. He became eligible for release from jail but declined. He expressed no desire to leave, saying he “wouldn’t last five minutes”

     

    9. Volkert Van der Graaf

    Volkert Van der Graaf

    via de telegraaf

    Van der Graaf was a Dutch vegan animal rights campaigner who in May 2002, assassinated anti-immigration politician Pim Fortuyn as he was heading for his car. Van der Graaf was a passionate activist who fought against factory farming and worked with the Environment Offensive, a group aimed at “stopping the expansion of factory farming”. As a teen he said his parents would not let him give up meat, but he later became a vegan. His alleged reason for killing Fortuyn was to stop him from exploiting Muslims as “scapegoats”. He viewed Fortuyn as a threat to those groups, comparing his rise to that of Nazism in Germany in the 1930s. At his trial, relatives of the slain politician appeared in court wearing fur coats as a show of spite against Van der Graaf.

    8. Adolf Hitler

    http://www.trend-chaser.com/politics/hitlers-skull-actually-unknown-womans-9-other-weird-facts-about-the-fuhrer/2/

    via trendchaser.com

    Under Hitler’s reign, millions of people were killed and if some reports are to be believed, the Nazi regime was an institution with paradoxical ethics. On the one hand were the horrors of Auschiwitz where cruel and inhumane experiments were conducted on Jewish prisoners  by evil scientists such as the infamous Josef Mengele. On the other hand was the irony of Nazi animal rights advocacy. Adolf Hitler himself is alleged to have been a vegetarian (albeit not a strict one) with a fondness for animals particularly that of ravens, wolves and dogs. It has been reported that he believed meat-consumption was a factor in societal decline. In his 1938 autobiography, Mein Kampf, he recounts how, even when food was scarce, he would share his paltry rations with mice. When the Nazi Party came to power in 1933, they instituted numerous animal protection laws. People could be jailed for mistreating animals which included such acts as docking the ears and tails of dogs without anesthesia, and invasive animal research. The Nazis apparently had compassion even for the suffering of lobsters in restaurants.

     

    7. Lynette Fromme

    lynette fromme

    via http://murdersofaugust69.freeforums.net/

    Lynette Fromme was a would be assassin and member of the infamous “Manson Family” cult. Although she did not succeed, in 1975 Lynette “Squeaky” Fromme was dead set on assassinating then president Gerald Ford. She pulled out a colt .45 caliber semi-automatic pistol during an event in Sacramento at which the president appeared but she was quickly subdued by intervening Secret Service agents. She was convicted and sentenced to life for her assassination attempt but was released on parole in 2009. Audio tapes of her pretrial psychiatric examination have been released that reveal her to be a herbivore among other things. When asked about her diet she replied, “Vegetables, yeah, I’m a vegetarian. I try and avoid additives, sugar; I ordinarily don’t eat any sugar, starch.”

    6. Scott Dyleski

    http://www.nbcbayarea.com/news/local/Dyleski-Lawyers-Point-Finger-at-Horowitz-122891674.html

    via nbcbayarea.com

    In October 2005, Scott Dyleski murdered his neighbor Pamela Vitale who was the wife of prominent lawyer Daniel Horowitz. Dyleski was only 16 years old when he bludgeoned Vitale to death in her home while she was surfing the web. During his trial he was impassive and un-emotive making no admission of guilt nor any disclosure of details of his motives. He was convicted of first degree murder and was served the max sentence of life without parole being ineligible for the death penalty on account of his age. In spite of his cold demeanor, witnesses at his trial, stated that Dyleski was a gentle vegan kid who also had a fascination with Goth music and serial killers.

    5. Chandrakant Jha

    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/indiahome/indianews/article-2280753/Serial-killer-Chandrakant-Jha-profile.html

    via dailymail.co.uk

    In India during the late 90s, Chandrakant Jha would house young men in his home only to murder them often under petty pretenses such as lying or being non-vegetarian. He would reportedly pamper them like his own children and then kill them at the slightest provocation. Jha would scatter his victims mutilated limbs throughout Delhi which he did to taunt police officials. He was caught in 1998 and served time behind bars only to be released in 2002 for lack of evidence. He continued to kill 6 others before he was caught again. He reportedly had a  “death ritual” where around 8pm he would tie his victim’s hands on the pretext of punishing him and then strangle them using a nunchaku. Jha was eventually captured and sent to the gallows for his crimes.

    4. Sheila Graham-Trott

    http://abcnews.go.com/US/mayors-wife-faces-trial-florida-love-triangle-slaying/story?id=25372739

    via abcnews.go

    Sheila Graham-Trott  was found guilty of first degree murder in the 2010 killing of Kelly Brennan, her former friend and estranged husband’s lover. 24 hours after going missing, Kelly Brennan’s body was found dumped in the bushes with signs of head trauma consistent with a hammer. Officials were led to her body after Sheila made a bizarre 911 call reporting she was seeing ‘visions’ of her friend’s face in the dark. The odd claim was enough to convince prosecutors that Sheila Graham-Trott was culpable. Perhaps as an attempt to convey the gentleness of her daughter, Graham-Trott’s mother expressed that Sheila has been a vegetarian since ninth grade because her bus stop was near an abattoir.

    3. Sonia Jacobs

    http://www.thesunnycenter.com/media.html

    via thesunnycenter.com

    Sonia Jacobs was a 28-year-old ‘vegetarian hippie’ when she was arrested along with her husband and a 3rd man following a 1976 shootout in which two policemen were killed. Jacobs and her husband Jesse Tafero were passengers in a car driven by Walter Rhodes when the incident occurred. The 3 were convicted in the murders and spent 15 years on death row before the driver made a confession following the execution of Jesse Tafero in 1990. Rhodes made an admission that exculpated Jacobs of guilt and she was released in 1992. She reunited with her son and daughter and later remarried to an Irishman who was also released from prison under similar circumstances.

    2. John Linley Frazier

    https://alchetron.com/John-Linley-Frazier-1024531-W

    via alchetron.com

    John Linley Frazier was a mass murderer dubbed “the killer prophet”. In 1970 he murdered ophthalmologist Victor Ohta, his wife, two sons and a secretary and subsequently burned down the house they were in while he in a drug-induced psychosis. Frazier was vegetarian hippie who collected guns and did drugs and it is believed his use of LSD contributed to the string of erratic behavior leading up to the murders. He claimed to hear voices that compelled him to act as an agent of god. He was convicted and sentenced to death by lethal gas but the sentence was later commuted to life imprisonment.

    1. Adam Lanza

    http://www.businessinsider.com/who-was-adam-lanza-the-sandy-hook-shooter-2012-12

    via businessinsider.com

    In December 2012, Adam Lanza shot and killed 20 children at the Sandy Hook elementary school in Newton, Connecticut. He also murdered 6 adult staff members as well as his mother before committing suicide. He is said to have been fascinated with chimpanzees because of their capacity for empathy, but could show little or none himself. Adam reportedly had mental disorders including obsessive-compulsive behaviors such as changing his socks 20 times a day and using tissues to open doors for fear of touching knobs with his bare hands. Witnesses have reported that Adam was a vegan who drank water “with a certain amount of salt added to it.” He reportedly had no friends or associates and never used drugs or alcohol. He would write stories and poems that would at turns terrify and move his listeners to tears. In an email to investigators, an unnamed witness disclosed that “Emotion wasn’t something expressed in particularly verbose or grandiose fashion but it was expressed. He was capable of laughing, smiling and making jokes though always in a dry fashion.”
