LEVF is the Attitudinal Psyche type that seems the most interested in how they can envision and construct their reality to gain insight, meaning, and discover a philosophy that provides mental abundance. The LEVF appears to be protecting themselves from those who wish to take advantage of their philosophical nature by keeping their ideas close, resisting pressure, and putting conviction in their own ideas as the be-all end-all truth of the matter. They may come off as warm, intellectually lively, stoic, friendly, philosophical, perceptive, idealistic, succinct, dreamy, and at times reactive when others attempt to disrupt their decisions. The LEVF seems to want control over their identity through piecing together a philosophy that makes them feel at ease yet confident in the truth value held within the details.
LEVFs have a tranquil and unruffled relationship to the logic aspect. This type believes that they can find logical conclusions when necessary and may engage in conversation surrounding the aspect more often than expected, especially if it is to inform others on how they feel about the world. They typically come off as calm and relaxed about their opinions, which can surprise others when the LEVF does become assertive about what they know to be true. LEVFs are the masters of masking their own sneering doubt towards people. They can smile through their own aggressive reactions and attempt to shift the mood positively to take control of a situation. They may adopt a philosophy of being helpful and offering constructive feedback without emotional or personal vendettas to further bolster their attitudes towards communication. However, regardless of this helpful and informative appearance, certain subtypes can be completely unaware of their own stubborn confidence in their logical opinions. LEVFs may find it difficult to recognize their own braggart attitude towards philosophy, especially if they are someone who avoids conflict. The overarching theme of this type is of someone who has an interest in internalizing their own vision of the fundamental building blocks of reality.
LEVFs have a receptive, vibrant and sometimes gleeful 2E. This type tends to have a raw and upfront approach to expressing themselves, while retaining appropriateness. They often want to set the emotional mood for others to feel like they are included, heard, and matter. There is often a calm aura that resounds with this type, even when they are acting out of aggression within logic or volition. LEVFs want to understand and leave room for others in the sentimental realm. They may use eye contact, positive expression, head nodding, and other facial expressions to soothe the defenses of others. On the positive side, this type knows how to maneuver others to create an uplifting experience, but on the negative side, they can turn towards manipulation if not psychologically healthy. LEVFs believe that they must meet people where they are, never being too forceful or emotionally foul. They want to know that others will respect their own character as much as they would for them. For this reason, this type can be sensitive to betrayal and may flip the script to being emotionally blunt once they learn that the other person does not respect them.
LEVFs have a uniquely varied 3V depending on the individual. This type often has a hard time recognizing their own attitude towards volition and can sometimes think that they are 1V or 4V. The reason for this confusion is that LEVFs often want to quickly succeed at all costs, especially in the academic realm, so you will not see as much active chatter about volition like with the other 3Vs. Along with that, they often do accomplish what they set out for, which further gives them the feeling of having confidence coming to quick conclusions about their future. However, as all good things come to an end, so does this type’s relationship to the volition aspect. LEVFs can start to notice the lopsided balance of power in the world which gives way to feelings of unfairness. This type can become extremely bothered by the control that others may wield around them and can act out aggressively to counter that control. Some LEVFs may run away entirely from a situation where they are expected to act outside of their means, while others can passive aggressively ignore any demands placed on them. This type believes that letting in too many outside influences will bring their hidden negativity to the surface, so they quickly move to dousing that flame before it catches their world on fire.
LEVFs have a suggestible relationship to the physics aspect. This type often finds it interesting and fun to engage in new activities in the tangible world. They may be brought to life by talk of aesthetics, art, beauty, food, or new purchases. However, the talking is usually for a purpose as LEVFs want a plausible reason to discuss the nature of the material world. They can also develop odd quirks and whims about their preferences and where they desire objects to lay in rest around them. This can look strange for the type, but the true 4F attitude comes out in the flippancy about the physical realm, as LEVFs are quick to calculate the information and move forward. This type does not want to waste time going over too many options or being held hostage creating elaborate profiles of what they like or dislike. LEVFs want the outer image of themselves to reflect what they desire collectively; a space where people can exist as they are and improve their lives as they see fit. For this reason, their style can become minimalistic, stoic, chilled, simple, delightful, and subtle. They often believe that the physical world is merely a reflection of information exchange.
LEVFs believe that they have the ability to find the right answer no matter how hidden or deep it is. Communication and development of communities are seen as a means to an end for this type. They want others to recognize that the LEVF has the answer and can easily educate them if they choose to listen. The problem with this line of thinking is that everyone has different learning styles and a long-winded monologue about the beliefs of the LEVF can be incompatible with large swaths of the audience. This type must learn to express their ideas in many ways. Pay attention to the opinions of others, and how you can stoke more interest and cooperation through your own personality and feelings. There is a fine line between education and forced learning.
LEVFs become frustrated and intolerant of the many possibilities of their future. This type is prone to quickly choosing a path in academia or schooling rather than truly examining what it is they desire for their future. They become anxious and reject any ideas that others may give them, but it is not readily apparent because this type bottles up the feeling. This internalization of their anxiety leads to a feeling of entrapment. LEVFs do not see the map of their own life clearly and the antidote to this frustration is to figure out where their own power lies. How do they affect others? What do they desire for their future? Centering themselves and asking the hard questions will lead to feelings of liberation.
LEVFs find answers quickly when gathering facts and data. They rarely take time to reconsider accuracy as they are more focused on the overall idea or concept of the theoretical realm. This type knows the basics of their own needs and rarely switches up their preferences. However, this laziness in paying attention to their own needs and preferences causes them to overlook very obvious fixes in their environment that could help them in numerous ways. LEVFs need to play around with their environment. Figure out how many different ways to change their schedule, which foods and diet put them in the best mood, and the specific quantities of items and dedication required to feel their greatest.
LEVFs ruminate about what inspires themselves and others. They often worry about their choices and when other inspirations appear that do not match their current path, they may panic and believe that everything is going to crash and fail. This type needs to motivate themselves to trust in their desires. Sometimes desires change and evolve but the inner motivation can always be turned on and off when needed. Learn about what activates the hunger within and become comfortable with expressing their own power. This type will feel at peace when they can fight through the doubt and ruminations that plague all of us as humans.
LEVFs follow the excitement and plans that others lay forward. They go with the flow and want to be included in festivities but rarely inject their own opinion on how things should unfold. This type can be easily gaslit into agreeing with the established mood or feeling of a room and this is where they can run into trouble. LEVFs may lose themselves and forget what they feel internally about the situations around them. They must learn to focus on what they find enjoyable, and more importantly, unenjoyable. Clarity for the future and which desire the LEVF should deeply honor comes from affirming what they need in life in the relationships and people around them.
LEVFs struggle to take power and command over any situation. They are too stuck in the communication-oriented part of their minds to consider moving people and things to align with their own desires. This type falls into desperation when they know they must make huge changes in their lives. They feel that they have no energy to make big decisions without the ability to think through it and plan accordingly. In order to fix the issue, LEVFs must prioritize their movements step-by-step. Rather than being stuck in thought, execute an action in little steps. Figure out what is needed first, then move on to each successive need. Breaking down projects gives the LEVF the map of prioritization that they need.

LEVFs appear stoic, warm, intrigued, and well-studied. Their style often reflects their desire to invite people and communities into their lives, so they refrain from being too immodest or overly loud. This type will pick a style and stay with it for many years, only changing small details as others point them out or give advice. LEVFs can develop an interest in fashion but tend to create new ideas with a minimalist approach as their main focus. This type wants to disarm others and slow down those who are moving too quickly through life without thinking and communicating who they are. For this reason, LEVFs need the attention to be on their ideas rather than their style, so the goal is to reroute attention to the cerebral part of their personality.
