Yesterday, Charlie mentioned to me, " the grim epxeriences & frustration of living with compensatory narcissism." As most of you know, my styles are strongest to weakest: 1 Serious, 2 Inventive, and 3 Sensitive. Dave Kelly when he defined a compensatory narcissistic style, the Inventive, used as a model the MBTI, ENXP ( x=T/F ) . Now, those of you know that the ENP's biggest problem, is staring things, but losing interest and moving on to new projects, before completing the old ones, see the great weakness of the Inventive Style. If the Inventive is not coupled with a work style-Serious, Conscientious, and Aggressive, not much concrete work is going to get done, and you have just image & illusions of things done.
Through no action on my part, my 2 strongest styles balance each other off, and prevent excess from either style...! My continuing frustrations come from the Sensitive Style's Vigilant like scanning of the environment, the ability to listen to what is said, how it is said, double meanings, unspoken things, etc. The Inventive Style allows me to rapidly see the impications, and what can be done with the situation.... These styles are things that I was born with, and never tried to attain, merely learning how to use their powers, hit or miss like everybody else.... Its sometimes maddening to me, to be quick enough to grasp these things, and have others want me to explain in detail, when its so " obvious "! Rich
