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.
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 usually feel patient and accepting of new facts when they arise, as they trust in their own curiosity to lead the way through 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. At times, they can appear elitist, stand-offish, and arrogant regarding their own opinions. This can lead others to believe that the LVEF is only interested in academic information, and can give off an icy, closed-off impression to others. However, the first impression is rarely ever accurate for this type, as the more they trust you, the more they will engage in a large variety of topics within conversation. LVEFs want to align themselves with their version of the truth and as long as others respect their authority to believe and impart knowledge as they see fit, then the LVEF will remain positive and open to external feedback.
LVEFs have a contained and sometimes hidden 2V. The LVEF mainly uses their relationship to volition to get along with others. This type tends to be quite agreeable when it comes to plans, responsibilities, and shared duties. They are easily moved towards new goals and will sometimes forget about any previous arrangements which can give them a scattered appearance. This can also enable the LVEF to fade into the background of social situations since there is a willingness to meet people where they are when it comes to their energy levels. Contrary to the other 2V types, LVEFs are often socially introverted unless they can hyper-focus on the implementation and teaching of their ideas, or if they are the neurotic and over-thinking archetype of the overall type. This type often has a penchant for success via logical idealization which can intertwine with their 1L and cause them to become unstoppable in creating wide-reaching public opinions. They can become intent on receiving feedback for how they have impacted others and use this to continue improving their skill or trade. LVEFs believe everything can be mentalized and figuring out the core components of the movement of reality is the most important idea to intellectually consume.
LVEFs have an extremely reserved and avoidant relationship to the emotion aspect. This type is notorious for refusing to engage in the emotional world unless it is a complaint or worry that must be solved in the moment. They can become seemingly unfazed by any emotional feedback, yet internalize the exchange once they are on their own. LVEFs, contrary to how they appear, care deeply about their own and others’ emotional worlds. They have an extreme sensitivity to being hurt, offended, rejected, berated, verbally attacked, or trampled over. This sensitivity is what tends to keep them emotionally dry when it comes to dealing with others interpersonally. However, when LVEFs do open up to others, a world of complex observations about the quirks and motivations of humanity tends to come out. The only condition to seeing this hidden part of the LVEF is to offer an emotionally safe environment where they can explore without feeling negative or biting feedback. If the LVEF senses even an ounce of discord within the emotional environment, they will either quickly respond with aggression or put up their impenetrable wall without a second thought. This type understands their own emotional fragility and devises quick fixes to protect themselves.
LVEFs tend to have the classic stereotypical 4F. This type wants to forego spending too much time discussing, thinking about, or exploring the physical realm, as they do not see much of a point for doing so. However, they are receptive to feedback from others about physics, especially when it comes to financial, and career advice (mostly because of the combination with 2V). LVEFs often create theories about their environment and enjoy categorizing the effect that it has on the body. This type will notice minute details about others that are often missed and want to solidify them into an intelligible cause-and-effect system. Despite this, if reality transcends beyond the theoretical, LVEFs like to keep things simple. As long as they have the basic necessities to continue logging their observations, they are usually happy. For this reason, they can under value the role that the body has in their own happiness, which can be countered if they happen to surround themselves with people who are knowledgeable and confident in dealing with the physical world. In the mind of an LVEF, the more simple a solution is to getting their needs met, the better.
LVEFs believe that they can find the correct details and logical framework that they need without trouble. There is rarely any hesitation with this type to dig into the specifics of the world and what makes things move and operate together – which can and often does include people. This type believes that they can find the answers easily so wasting too much time on one idea is counterproductive. However, this is exactly what LVEFs must learn to do. Dig deeper into the context and specifics of an idea and take every piece of information away from it that could affect your future or chosen expertise. LVEFs must stop spreading themselves thin and truly commit to an agenda that gives them merit and accountability.
LVEFs tend to feel frustrated when they must communicate their ideas to others. This type is prone to worry and insecurity when they must adjust the way they speak to people as there is an intense fear of offending or causing a bad experience to transpire with others. LVEFs often feel trapped and that they cannot truly express their opinions in any other way than deadpan. Some LVEFs deal with this by speaking quickly and spitting out as many ideas as they can so they do not get stuck in any unwanted emotion. LVEFs must deal with this fear by having the courage to express their emotions and true opinions about their ideas. Adopting an artistic outlet or creative way to communicate what is happening internally works wonders for liberating the insecurity.
LVEFs spend very little time searching for perfection in logic. This type would rather gather a variety of data and figures than waste time finding every precise detail and how it shows up in the physical world. When LVEFs must pay attention to this realm of life, they quickly come to conclusions and move forward. However, this demand for swiftness often leads to overlooking important information of how their ideas affect their surroundings. LVEFs must learn how the details of their environment change their potential to succeed and move forward with innovative ideas. Our needs affect our moods, energy, emotions, clarity, and mental abilities, so the more this type devotes time to logistics, the more important information will arise.
LVEFs can become trapped in their emotions which often stops them in their tracks completely. This type is always trying to figure out ways to stay motivated to reach their goals. They may believe that their emotions are poisoning their mindset and therefore their mindset is causing their emotions to run sour. This looping is usually responsible for LVEFs cutting off contact from others and isolating completely. LVEFs must learn how to break free from the confines of worry about other people and follow their inspirations whenever they appear. Rather than being afraid of what others might say about the *way* they present their ideas, LVEFs need to confidently act on them and accept that there may be discomfort and anxiety that arises.
LVEFs generally do not care who is in charge or running the show around them. This type feels that most everyone can be a leader if they desire to and others having expectations is normal and worth considering. LVEFs may find it advantageous to start recognizing who is taking care of which things around them. This type has an uncanny ability to offer creative and innovative logical data, so they can get lost in understanding how to properly transmit it to those who can help get the message out. The more that LVEFs focus on the configuration of people, businesses, power, and politics, the easier it will be for them to have a medium to spread and enact their ideas.
LVEFs are caught off guard and confused by their own emotional reactions. This type feels desperate to understand their changes in mood and what causes them. They may question and wonder if there are logical reasons for their shifts in emotions but come up with few answers. This constant worry can leave this type feeling drained. LVEFs often try to put their emotions and sensitivities into a logical hierarchy to better organize them which can cause their neurotic episodes. The best fix for this type is to quit running from negative emotional experiences and instead embrace them. LVEFs must try to focus on how the emotions affect the body and soothe their anxiety by meeting their own needs and maximizing comfort and enjoyment.

LVEFs often have an appearance that aligns with their current emotional state. Those that are more neurotic and openly curious of the world will appear jovial and gleeful, while those that are insecure, afraid, and unsure of their relationships will come off quiet, shut off, avoidant, and sometimes dark. Either way, LVEFs like to dress very minimalistic unless they have chosen an aesthetic that they believe works for them longer term. This type tends to be scattered, messy, and forgetful so the way they dress will be extremely inconsistent. They may be well put together one day, and totally careless the next. LVEFs desire to engage in interesting information that provides them with more clues as to devising their logical plans even deeper, so not much importance is placed on owning an aesthetic.
