ELVFs are great storytellers. They can make a person feel a wide depth of emotions through their crafty use of language and story telling. This type, nicknamed “the poet”, is able to build a colorful picture of their desires and they often use this to negotiate their responsibilities through lengthy discussions. Unfortunately, ELVFs tend to have an attitude that does not aid them in exerting their willpower to take care of every day tasks. It’s not that an ELVF is lazy, however, they can sometimes lack attentiveness to chores and errands. This lack of willpower is often what leads this type to experiencing anxiety and restlessness. ELVFs spends a lot of time developing their emotional worlds through exploration of their own and others’ minds. They enjoy conversing and sharing interesting tidbits and ideas that they’ve gathered over time. However, as much as they love to express themselves at length, they are always scanning information to gain more insight to share in the future. ELVFs are intrigued by things that are bizarre and theoretical. They may become interested in taboo or unexplored topics, while refusing to let anyone deter their wandering mind. This type usually does not get caught up in materialism and physical desires, unless it aids them in one of their emotional revelations. “The Poet” may also experience deep anxiety when attempting to organize their goals and future career plans. This worrisome nature in regards to their own volition may cause them to ignore their physical needs and they can often leave their environment in disarray if they can’t manage their own stress. However, a tool they do have is being able to heavily research and keep themselves motivated with their intense emotions. They can overcome hardships by expanding their poetic thoughts and artistic touch while sharing them with the world. Overall, ELVFs bring a unique vision to life while refusing to bend to the banality and expectations of society.
1E – Confident Emotions
ELVFs express their emotions without hesitation. This type will use eloquent language to express whatever feeling moves them. They are confident in their personal values and will argue for them easily, often citing many details they’ve gathered throughout their lives. ELVFs understand how to present generally boring facts in an entertaining way. However, their motivation to entertain depends on how much passion they have for the subject. It is difficult to tell an ELVF what to do and how to feel. They often have a negative emotional reaction to feeling pressured to act a certain way and will outright reject those who try to do so. Taking care of their physical health is generally the last on their minds, as they are mostly interested in the activities of the imagination. ELVFs prefer to focus on art and storytelling rather than wasting too much time thinking about materialism. They will easily assert their independence over anyone who challenges their identity.
2L – Flexible Logic
ELVFs will go into great detail to explain the inner workings of their mind. They delight in guiding people through different schools of thought while exploring the unknown. They remain unambiguous in their explanations of how they feel. ELVFs enjoy logical puzzles and will encourage others to solve them, always looking for taboo and hidden constructs. This type spends large amounts of time gaining knowledge. They may sometimes feel completely overwhelmed with needing to produce energy, so they resort to researching things instead. They usually find conceptualizing a problem and solution much easier than brute force to accomplish a goal. ELVFs tend use logic in a theoretical way and usually aren’t too interested in applying their ideas to being more practical. It’s not as if they’re completely oblivious to their surroundings, but they tend not to care unless it inhibits their creativity. They believe they can always take their time figuring out how to mesh with their surroundings, so this usually results in them having a more laid back behavior when it comes to cooking, cleaning and other various chores around their living spaces. They deeply care about the reasoning behind their actions. To them, motivations must make perfect sense in order to act upon them. This type allows their intense interests in subject matter to occupy most of their time. ELVFs tend to thoroughly research a topic and completely ignore their bodily needs until they’re finished chewing on the subject.
3V – Insecure Volition
ELVFs refuse to be pushed around. They will often use whatever mood they’re in to regulate their motivation. This type may struggle to accept responsibilities that do not align with their personal values and will question anyone who suggests otherwise. ELVFs usually enjoy constructing arguments that help them decide which action makes the most sense to take next. However, this doesn’t mean that they’re going to do it – as discussing their options is more enjoyable than completing them. Sometimes this type will promise to accomplish certain goals, then struggle to complete them when the time arrives. It’s not as if they don’t care – they solely lack the confident attitude to predict their future focus and energy. Being bossed around or instructed how to behave will often trigger an emotional outburst from an ELVF. Even if they don’t immediately react, they are experiencing explosiveness internally. When this type is unsure of the next steps to take in a project or goal, they appreciate someone who can explain out the options they have moving forward. They feel even more confident in taking a step forward when an emotionally stable person guides them. Remaining patient is optimal in interacting with “The Poet” as pressure on responsibilities makes them worry and feel uncertain. ELVFs tend to appreciate a discussion before incorporating the advice of others.
4F – Unconcerned Physics
ELVFs often detach from their surroundings to spend time in their imaginative fantasies. This creative type is not materialistic unless the object specifically aids in their emotional endeavor. They tend to wear basic fashions although their styles are often eccentric, bizarre and sometimes controversial. They usually base everything they do on whatever emotion, feeling or epiphany is repeating in their mental space. Sometimes ELVFs confuse physical symptoms of illness, fatigue or hunger with their emotions and aren’t quite sure how to resolve it unless someone points it out. They may attempt to feel better by adjusting to a more positive mood. However, this type prefers to take the advice of others who can give quick and efficient answers to help them feel better physically. ELVFs use their strong interest and attitude towards logic to understand the basics of how to maintain their homes and invest their money. They do not anticipate what materials they may need and address them only when they must. This type can sometimes forget appointments they have without having a trusted confidante around to remind them. ELVFs believe they are engaged in their imaginations far too much to be picky about food and clothing, so they’ll often be open to all sorts of cuisines, styles, and aesthetics.
