The Conductor

LVFE is the Attitudinal Psyche type that seems the most interested in strategically conveying their ideas of how the world works to others through philosophical discussions, encouragement, and ingenuity. The LVFE appears to be protecting their vision of the world by pushing it to be objectively testable, consistent, and free from physical barriers. They may come off as lively, intellectually curious, talkative, philosophical, educational, goofy, charismatic, and sometimes politically involved. The LVFE seems to want control over their identity through intellectualizing possibilities, proposing their own truths to others, and deciphering the most ideal conceptual manner to view the world. 

1L – Confident Logic

LVFEs have an expansive attitude towards the logic aspect. This type enjoys monologuing about their own take on philosophy and how things work around them while including humor, sarcasm, or small quips to color their language and encourage others to listen and consider their viewpoint for its value and relevance. LVFEs often believe that their method for discerning what is true is correct by default, yet this does not stop them from attempting to instruct or lead others to the same conclusions. This type prefers that all parties lay their opinions out on the table and take the information that they need, rather than endless discussion and processing for the sake of banter.

2V – Flexible Volition

LVFEs have an almost nurturing approach to the volition aspect, not dissimilar to FVLE. This type often feels that it is their responsibility to listen to the complaints of others and offer practical solutions for future decisions that could better their lives. LVFEs tend to want to expand the ways in which we think about life: to recognize hidden opportunities, change the angle in which we perceive our own power, and to ignite our minds towards growth and expansion. This type usually believes that no decision is a wrong decision, as it can be re-imagined into a learning experience of one’s own faults and journey towards the ideal.

3F – Insecure Physics

LVFEs have a strong aversion to negativity and inaccuracy in the realm of the physics aspect and are one of the pickiest 3F types. They tend to highly dislike clutter, erroneous information regarding the physical world, and undesirable sensations or aesthetics. LVFEs want their external environment to reflect the ideal vision they are so confident about internally. When these two visions do not match, the LVFE can become spiteful, angry, grouchy, and pushy about their opinions. For this reason, the external appearance of LVFEs can seem very well put together and often downright perfectionistic. They may feel stressed out about their physical selves and will often over-work themselves to make sure that they are taken care of.

4E – Unbothered Emotion

LVFEs have one of the most devalued relationships with the emotion aspect. This does not stop them from expressing emotions when they desire to, but it does affect the way that they view their emotions. LVFEs believe that their emotions are irrelevant in most cases unless they can be strictly combined with their internal map of how reality functions. They tend to look towards others when needing some form of emotional release, as this feels more inspirational to their expansive nature. This type often uses emotions for artistic enhancement rather than genuinely forming opinions about the emotions themselves. This can aid the LVFE in appearing less opinionated, and more interesting – as they desire to get their message out as smoothly as possible.
