ELVF is the Attitudinal Psyche type that seems the most interested in transmitting their own strong emotional convictions through art, poetry, analytics, and rebellious declarations. The ELVF appears to be protecting their right to emotional and personal autonomy by being highly resistant to others who infringe on this core attitude. They may come off verbose, talkative, theoretical, self-centered, moody, poetic, artistic, and emotionally blunt. The ELVF seems to want control over their identity through narrating their lives, foraging meaning from their experiences, and retaining their own right to choose which emotional aesthetics get to take up space in their mental sphere.

ELVFs are the most emotionally bold 1E type (and type overall). This type does not hold back in letting others know their opinions of their relationships, both good and bad. They stick by their emotions and resist any outside force that may obstruct or diminish their expression. ELVFs can have a wide array of feelings and intuitions that will vary based on the individual – but regardless of this contrast this type will own whatever emotion they feel is pertinent to their identity. The ELVF often expects that others respect their autonomy and right to their own emotions. Sometimes shy, this type can hold back in the beginning of a relationship but will not falter being straightforward once questioned.

ELVF is the most highly verbose 2L type. ELVFs prefer to turn logical analysis into a long discussion about possibilities, twists, and turns in the bounds of the theoretical. They do not mind being wrong about logic, so long as it is not held over them personally or professionally. This can sometimes happen, and make the ELVF appear 1L or 3L, when in fact they are perceiving the accuser as attacking their identity or emotional sensibilities. When given ample time and space to discuss logic, the ELVF often gathers all evidence and expresses it in long diatribes that invite others to continue feeding more questions into the logical voyage. The ELVF may end up in a completely different space than where they started, as the journey through the theoretical is where they feel the most comfortable.

ELVFs have the most verbally aggressive, angry, and internally (sometimes externally) violent 3V besides their solution type FLVE. This type has an extremely difficult time figuring out what steps and decisions they must take to create goals for their lives. They also disregard any sort of assured or confident seeming advice coming from others that does not take their specific circumstances into consideration. Any sort of default or vague advice is swiftly rejected, as the ELVF wants others to genuinely take interest in their life struggles. ELVFs can challenge others who assert their power, often feeling a skeptical disgust that they may or may not express, as they feel that volition is an ever-changing part of the human experience, so holding onto power so vehemently seems phony or fraudulent to them.

ELVFs have a lax approach to physics which makes them one of the most obvious 4F types. This type will often ignore their surroundings so long as they feel that their needs are met (and sometimes even this does not activate them). They can feel completely unbothered by any clutter, mess, dirty laundry, unpaid bills, or even half-done practical tasks lying around. ELVFs tend to only pay attention to the physical world when it aids in their poetic or emotional creations that they are attempting to convey to the world. However, some ELVFs feel a natural urge to solve their physical issues in order to free up their own time and feel free from worry and anxiety. Once the physical can be perceived as something more meaningful or metaphorical to the ELVF, then they take notice immediately. The ELVF often desires that others will complete their tasks for them or at least offer up decisive advice on how to deal with life’s little chores without wasting too much energy.


ELVFs believe that communicating their emotions is one of the sole purposes of their existence. This type spends the majority of their time trying to figure out how to package up each unique feeling that they have and transmit it to others in some passionate or dramatic way. The problem that ELVFs run into is they disregard the most efficient way to deliver educational information to others. This type is so determined in their own feelings and how to describe them that they forget to check in with the audience. ELVFs must learn to take the occasional break to remain present with the listeners of their stories so they can understand how to effectively narrate.


ELVFs are in a constant state of frustration when it comes to attempting to inspire themselves and others. Imagining their future and how to force their own emotions to align with it causes extreme levels or frustration and aggression to arise within this type. ELVFs do not know how to maintain a consistent vision of the future and frequently fall back on their volcanic emotions to come to terms with it. This type must learn to face their future one goal at a time. Motivation is something that is built over time and does not appear suddenly, which is the biggest lesson that this type must learn. Approach the future with courage while taking small steps over large leaps.


ELVFs want excitement and fun to be easily accessible at all times. This type believes that activation of the senses is something to be quickly gained and engraved into their emotional memory rather than sitting around waiting. ELVFs must learn to slow the passionate part of their mind down and pay attention to the sensations that each experience brings. The more focus that can be placed on the details of an experience, the more meaning and purpose that can be drawn from it. ELVFs can resist overlooking the finer details of life the more they put energy into the physical realm.


ELVFs become trapped in rumination and obsession when trying to visualize the map of their lives and where they are headed. This issue is what gives ELVF the title of the most talkative type, only rivaled by ELFV. All situations tend to be a potential trap or worry as ELVFs are aware that the future is predicated on what is happening in the now. For this type to relax and stop foreboding for hours on end wasting precious time, they must start to take authority over their lives and who they want to become. Face the fear of failure and flood the self with the terror that it takes to make a decision, goal, or plan. Not only does the decision need to take place, but ELVFs must believe they can develop the expertise to put the plan into action.


ELVFs feel that everyone can offer them feedback, however, the precise details of someone else’s experience are not as important as how the ELVF personally perceives it through their emotions. This openness makes ELVFs easy to talk to when it comes to numbers, figures, and facts. However, the downfall of this type is that they rarely pay close attention to how their physical world is truly affecting them. ELVFs can avoid their vague understanding of the logistical world by focusing on how their environment operates as a whole. Setting is just as important to the artist as the conveying of emotions.


ELVFs feel helpess when it comes to taking command over their lives. This type prefers that others offer them options, hope, and solutions to the problems that they face with their precarious attitude. ELVFs often become overwhelmed with too many tasks that they know will affect their future. Once the responsibilities start piling up, the ELVF is likely to implode entirely. This type must learn how to prioritize their tasks and goals. Learn to give a hierarchy of importance to each portion of life and act accordingly. This understanding of life from a new lens leads to an attainment that takes the ELVF out of their own insecurity and into wholeness.

Stereotypical Image

ELVFs often appear dramatic, emotional, artistic, poetic, and vibrant. This manifests in the way they dress, though not quite as “loud” as their customary relation EFVL, as 4F gives more of a muted appearance. ELVFs tend to be drawn to dark colors with out-of-place accessories or elements that pull people’s attention to their uniqueness. The more subdued ELVFs may not care at all how they dress and instead focus more on their emotional affect and how others will react to their presence itself. The most telling sign of an ELVF is a constant need to express themselves through some means of communication, be it: verbal, written, emotional or artistic. This type rarely shies away from showing their disdain or hatred which can make them seem aggressive.
