The Deviser

LVEF is the Attitudinal Psyche type that seems the most interested in coming up with action plans to better understand and integrate knowledge, emotions, and the underpinning of reality that binds these abstractions together. The LVEF appears to be protecting their emotional vulnerability by diverting their focus towards collaboration, gathering data, spurring ideas, and creating seamless opinions based on the objective collected data. They may come off as quiet, astute, perceptive, heady, scientific, level-headed, serious, cooperative, well-mannered, and at times anxious over how they come off to others. The LVEF seems to want control over their identity by creating clear maps of knowledge that reflect how life ebbs and flows in numerous directions.

1L – Confident Logic

LVEFs have a quiet and astute 1L. This type tends to believe that their opinions and reasoning skills are a tool for deconstructing the world around them, rather than using them to create rules and order like most 1Ls. LVEFs tend to feel patient and accepting of new facts as they arise, as they trust in their own curiosity to lead the way through new information. Although LVEFs do have a more relaxed 1L, this does not mean that they want to spend endless amounts of time comparing opinions with others. The goal of this type is to come to a conclusion after gathering the necessary facts activated by their curiosity of the theoretical realm. LVEFs believe that their own reasoning skills are what enable them to bring large scale change to their environment.

2V – Flexible Volition

LVEFs gradually achieve their ambitions and they accept that their goals are subject to frequent change. They are flexible in how they spend their energy and sometimes incorporate the demands of others into their schedules. However, they may become so unmoved by urgency that they forget to complete tasks that they started but they have no problem incorporating themselves back into their responsibilities when prompted. This type can tell detailed stories about what mindsets and efforts influenced their achievements which lends its hand to self-help methods. LVEFs motivate themselves towards any goal that is the most consistent with their beliefs. Occasionally their conflicting emotions inspire them to re-frame their identities but they don’t see this as too big of a deal. They spend much time pondering the structure of their motivations and feelings. LVEFs are so busy understanding the questions and direction of science and philosophy, that they can forget to regularly sleep and eat.

3E – Insecure Emotion

LVEFs are skeptical of the role of their emotions in their lives. Understanding their conflicting feelings is left for a time when they are comfortable to explore this. They can feel completely flustered by their own emotional inner vulnerability, or radically accept all emotions that bubble to the surface. They are uncertain that any one deep desire deserves their attention, so LVEFs commit to many techniques of stabilizing their mood. LVEFs reject most influences to their imaginations and see this part of existence as privately cultivated or something to consider with a trusted, patient friend or source. They can look at those who express themselves without limitation with a sneering doubt. Preferring to understand emotions in a safe environment, LVEFs are careful to avoid being put on the spot by others regarding how they feel. This type sometimes has pressing physical needs that they can confuse with emotional upheavals. If they aren’t properly following a diet or taking care of their physical needs, it can manifest in sour and irritable moods. When LVEFs are satisfied in hunger and organizing their environment, they feel more capable of integrating their feelings. LVEFs seek feedback from others so they can better fine-tune their likability to help their diplomatic nature.

4F – Unbothered Physics

LVEFs are apathetic to overthinking the details of caring for their bodies. They rely on people who simplify their eating and sleeping schedules and remind them to bring important possessions when needed. In their quest of understanding human motivation, this type prefers to spend as little time as possible obsessing over their bodily and physical needs. They want quick tips and solutions to bettering their health, as their attention lies more on intellectual pursuits. LVEFs often pay little attention to the impact of prolonged work on their bodies because motivation comes so easily. This type does not see how dysfunctional surroundings impacts their mental capabilities and emotional health but they trust those who are experts or confident in these realms. Simple, reliable methods of solving their physical needs is most appreciated by LVEFs. They spend the most time experimenting with their capabilities to sharpen their intellects, so efficient and easy regiments to take care of their physical world is ideal.
