> Dear Rich:
> Did you ever consider that Vigilant Style might be a very important style for you?
**** Yes. when I first read Oldham , in 1999, I was struck by how the introductory remarks of the Vigilant Style apply to me. However, after reading Millon on the Avoidant, where he modifies OldHam's Sensitive Style by adding the Vigilant scanning ability, it seems a perfectly good explanation of what I experience!
> What is your position on the suspicousness scale for you;
> very low - low - moderate - high - very high
**** In general low. In scanning the environment, probably very high.... Usually, I can tell right away if there is a problem. And, I don't mean crime, but rather things like drivers not being careful, loose dogs, etc.
> Were you a good survivor in Nam? (ISTJ!)
**** No, I was a support person ( My eyes were too bad for the infantry, but not so bad as to escape the draft. )When there were rocket attacks, I got to whatever safety there was....
I worked with a male 6W5/ISFJ for 18.5 years, and the close family member 6W7 ( with loads of social anxiety ) and I'm not like them. Its the Inventive ( narcissistic ) expansiveness that Millon talks about!
Serious= You have serious trouble here ( chuckle, chuckle.... )
Inventive= Okay, so we fix the problem. What's the big deal?
That's why I am always saying the Serious & Inventive balance each other so nicely and prevent excesses.... ( the Senstive Style keeps me formal & gives me the facade problem.... Rich
