The ENFP – The Candid Crusader

ENFP meme Michael Scott

Those rainbow-loving, unicorn-chasing stereotypes? Those aren’t real ENFPs. True ENFPs are pattern-seers who are gifted at sniffing out what lies beneath the surface. They’ve got intuition in spades and they’re not afraid to expose phoniness or listen to their gut feelings to question someone’s motives. You might see them as empathetic harbingers of positive change… until they call out deceit that was meant to stay hidden. Sure, they may be the life of the party, but they’re also the ones who’ll lovingly force you to confront your own hypocrisy. Their intuition is no joke; it’s a built-in lie detector, a mystical tool that seems to vibrate when deceit is near.

The ENTP – The Chaotic Strategist

ENTP meme

Underestimate them at your own peril. ENTPs, with their love for debate and distaste for the status quo, make shaking up systems feel like a thrilling game of Jenga. The moment you corner them is the moment they start dismantling your precious hierarchy, brick by brick. Their strategic chaos isn’t just provoking—it’s revealing the hidden truths you’d rather not face.

The INFP – The Steadfast Advocate

They may seem serene and gentle, but within the INFP beats the heart of a fierce protector of the underdogs. If someone makes a threat against a cause or person they value, they’ll transformation from a placid dreamer to a warrior for justice with an ironclad resolve. While laid-back in their day-to-day, they can become fiercely determined if something or someone they love is at stake. They’re unwavering in their values and not easily manipulated by attempts to sway their emotions.

Beware the quiet ones, they say, and with INTPs, this cliche hits the bullseye. Masters of the mental chessboard, every step you take could be right into an INTP’s trap. These walking encyclopedias hoard knowledge like dragons hoard treasure. Their strength in logic and strategy can turn into a chilling weapon in times of crisis or conflict. Gifted with an ability to detach emotionally from external situations, they’re able to think clearly and dissect problems with surgical precision. Nearly immune to the chaos around them, they examine multiple angles and leverage points with clarity. If provoked, INTPs can make complex plans of revenge, using their vast repository of knowledge as their arsenal. When an INTP is pushed to the brink, they might unleash a torrent of accurate, yet devastating critiques in a verbal barrage that can leave their target intellectually and emotionally flayed.

The ENFJ – The Benevolent Puppeteer

Oh, the ENFJ—charismatic leader or cunning emotional manipulator? You decide. These folks know your hopes and dreams before you’ve even ordered your morning coffee, and they’re not afraid to use that insight. Like social chess masters, they move their human pawns with a smile so genuine, you’d never guess it’s all part of their grand scheme. They build their loyal armies with words dipped in honey, turning teams into tribes. Need someone to rally the troops? Get an ENFJ. Want to start a cult? Also, ENFJ territory. They weave a web of collective dreams so enticing, everyone rushes to be part of the big picture. But cross an ENFJ, and suddenly that picture is a collage of your worst nightmares – good luck getting sleep when the ENFJ decides it’s game over for you.

The ENTJ – The Iron-Willed Overlord

ENTJ meme

Cross an ENTJ, and you’ve awakened a force of nature that moves with the precision and decisiveness of a chess grandmaster in the endgame. They are the architects of strategic warfare, with the unique ability to mobilize resources and orchestrate complex plans with an almost machinelike efficiency. Their gift isn’t just in the planning; it’s in the execution, wielding their power with unwavering resolve. If one dares to waste  their precious time, make excuses for bad behavior, or harm someone within their circle, the ENTJ transforms into a formidable adversary. Their passion, often hidden behind a veneer of cold rationality, ignites into a laser-focused intent to neutralize the threat. Remarkably adept at distancing themselves from personal emotions, they maintain an icy control as they meticulously lay out a trap, foreseeing outcomes with clairvoyant-like insight. An ENTJ scorned is a saboteur of the highest order—calculating, relentless, and visionary. So remember, provoke them at your own risk; an ENTJ’s retribution is not just a plan of attack, but a symphony of strategic dominance.

The INFJ – The Prophetic Saboteur

INFJ willly wonka meme
Every INFJ ever

Do not be fooled by their serene demeanor; INFJs possess a unique mirror into the soul, deciphering motivations and sensing the future with uncanny accuracy. They are the seers of the psychological realm, quietly predicting the ripples of human actions. Their empathy can create a sense of comfort and warmth, but, cross them, or harm someone they cherish, and this same gift becomes the scalpel in surgical psychological warfare. When pushed too far, they can dissect a psyche, delivering prophetic truths and unsettling insights with a delivery so sharp, it can disarm your sense of self. The INFJ doesn’t need to lift a finger to overthrow you; they simply speak the truths that set the dominos of your conscience cascading.

The INTJ – The Mastermind Avenger

Picture the INTJ as the mastermind behind the curtain, piecing together the future with a precision that would leave most bewildered. Their minds are like intricate webs of understanding, always predicting, always planning. They see the world as a giant chessboard—each person, a piece; every action, a potential move. Accuse them of being a schemer, and they might just give you a half-smirk, for they’ve probably anticipated your accusation long before it crossed your mind. Their keen perception of motives renders them almost immune to deceit or flattery. Try to butter them up or beat around the bush, and an INTJ will likely see right through you, often calling out the insincerity as effortlessly as breathing. Justice is their compass, and they navigate the world with a clear sense of right and wrong. Cross that line, and you’ll find yourself in a strategic showdown that’s been plotted with surgical accuracy. With contingency plans A through Z at the ready, an INTJ’s response is not just a retaliation, it’s a lesson in tactical finesse.

Far more than just the life of the party, the ESFP is a keen observer of their surroundings, always ready for an opportunity to swoop in and be the champion. They might be making people laugh with their wit and engaging stories, but their minds are always tracking, reading your body language and noticing motivations and things left unsaid. This social vigilance arms them with the insight to see through facades and recognizes deceit that tries to stay under the radar. And their zest for living in the moment makes them formidable opponents when it comes to adaptability. Test an ESFP’s wits, and you may be startled at how swiftly and adeptly they can turn the tables, catching you off-guard with their sharp perceptive skills and proving that they’re not only charming entertainers but also shrewd tacticians when the situation calls for it.

The ESTP – The Agile Combatant

Don’t mistake the ESTP’s love for excitement as mere thrill-seeking; there’s a razor-sharp tactical mind at play. Calm in the heat of a crisis, ESTPs are adrenaline-fueled and lightning-fast, with an impeccable awareness of the present moment. They thrive on the rush that comes with swiftly responding to immediate threats, their reaction time unparalleled as they spring into action to avert crises. But it’s not just their physical agility that’s formidable – as they dart into the fray, they’re also mentally dissecting every facet of the problem, rapidly analyzing and exploiting leverage points to outmaneuver the opposition. Confront an ESTP, whether in a physical showdown or a verbal spar, and you’ll find yourself outpaced before you even register the hit. In debate, their arguments are crisp, potent, and aimed with precision at an adversary’s vulnerabilities, ensuring that any battle against an ESTP is a formidable challenge for even the most seasoned opponents.

The ISFP – The Mysterious Defender

Beneath the ISFP’s tranquil surface lies a watchful guardian, always alert to the subtleties of their environment. Often perceived as reserved or soft-spoken, ISFPs have a quick emotional intelligence that allows them to discern the undercurrents of any situation. They are often champions for the downtrodden, and they can switch from quiet and sweet to steely and intimidating when someone goes after those they see as wronged or vulnerable. Despite their quiet demeanor, they react with surprising intensity and swiftness when they perceive that their core values, or the well-being of someone they hold dear, is threatened. Their actions are instinctive and decisive—making them formidable adversaries who can’t be easily deceived.

The ISTP – The Calculating Survivor

Cool under pressure and unflinchingly pragmatic, the ISTP personifies the art of survival in the face of adversity. Their composed exterior belies a mind constantly cataloging details, observing patterns, and calculating the next move. Enemies underestimate them at their peril; the ISTP is a silent watcher, a tactician who acts with precision and intent. Emotional ruses are futile against their objective logic; they see through manipulations with a clear and calculating gaze. Their knowledge of weaknesses and inclinations isn’t just passive data—it’s ammunition. In conflict—be it physical confrontation or a battle of wits—an ISTP will strike with an unexpectedness that disorients and overwhelms. Stealthy and efficient, they need only a moment to switch from silent observer to an assertive force, leaving adversaries in a wake of tactical defeat.

The ESFJ – The Benevolent Overlord

ESFJ meme

The ESFJ, often seen as the nurturing coordinator at the heart of their communities, believes fervently in the power of unity and harmony. Their interpersonally savvy nature and deep commitment to the well-being of others position them as protective shepherds over their loved ones, always ready to guide and comfort. But make no mistake, their supportive demeanor is coupled with a pragmatism that can turn steely in the face of threats. With a nuanced understanding of social dynamics, ESFJs are masters at influencing perceptions, swaying public opinion to safeguard those they care for or to isolate those who pose a risk. Their innate ability to gauge the emotional climate means they can quickly spread the word in their networks about individuals who fall from grace. And while their default approach is to defuse tension, they will not hesitate to adopt a more assertive stance. They can respond with astonishing coldness when the situation requires a direct confrontation to defend the integrity of their tribe or their own person.

The ESTJ – The Decisive Enforcer

ESTJ social meme

Commanding yet fair, the ESTJ is the epitome of leadership and structure, ensuring that efficiency reigns supreme in any environment they are a part of. These individuals have no tolerance for shortcuts or excuses; they see through ineffectiveness like a laser and are quick to implement comprehensive strategies that enhance productivity. Cross an ESTJ by shirking duties or partaking in deception, and you will soon find yourself strategically reassigned, your responsibilities reflecting the merit of your contributions. These guardians of order operate with an innate sense of justice, making no allowances for favoritism or room for excuses. Emotional appeals fall on deaf ears with ESTJs, as they view situations with an objective clarity that prioritizes the collective over individual whims.

The ISFJ – The Methodical Defender

Always striving for harmony, the ISFJ is the one who upholds the values of loyalty, diligence, and care within their circles. The embodiment of quiet resilience, ISFJs tend to prefer the role of the peacemaker. However, if someone violates their deeply-seated principles or threatens someone they love, they reveal a formidable edge. While they may seem gentle and amiable on the surface, they can transform into unwavering adversaries when the situation demands it. With an eye for details and a memory for the past, ISFJs can use all the weaknesses you thought nobody knew against you. Their patience, their methodical nature, and their attention to detail can make them a formidable enemy. Their emotional awareness can also help them to spot emotional weaknesses and use those to their advantage.

The ISTJ – The Methodical Tactician

ISTJs are the embodiment of diligence, perseverance, and attention to detail. Highly observant and attentive, ISTJs map out their plans with practicality and thoroughness. If their plan A doesn’t work, you can bet they’ve got a plan B and a plan C at the ready. Though they may appear quiet and unassuming, their mind works tirelessly to detect discrepancies and inconsistencies that others miss. If you get on their bad side, the ISTJ can carefully and methodically use their insights to dismantle your efforts with precision. Focused and logical, ISTJs patiently devise plans that are both efficient and devastatingly effective, emerging as the unexpected force that can calmly topple plans of those who underestimate them. Their penchant for thoroughness and an impressive capacity for staying on task and playing the long game makes them formidable foes, particularly against opponents prone to distraction.

After two years of mutual sparing, ( I had been with the company for eighteen years and him only three years—I knew the company Policy Manual better than he did—), several ex-employees and customers, whom he had cheated or removed for vindictive and/or nefarious reasons, had an “opportunity” to chat with our CEO. They confirmed his misdeeds and he was removed from the company the following week.
