Behind the Scenes
Behind-the-scenes types are very private. They like to keep their connections casual (and don’t like it when others try to “know them too well”). They prioritize options and personal freedom. They avoid obligations and “investing.” They are very comfortable being alone or with 1 person. Socializing (particularly with large groups) represent “too many potential social obligations.”
Behind-the scenes type are very concerned with rules, conventions and “how I should (be).” They often worry about their reputation, about what others think of them. It’s not uncommon for behind-the-scenes types to “speak and act” in ways that are “vague” and easily interpreted in multiple ways (giving them room to “change their meaning/intentions” if someone reacts badly). They will specifically try to “avoid drawing attention to themselves” (hence their name) to minimize the chance that someone might “catch them doing something inappropriate.”
Behind-the-scenes types are often minimalists. They “want to be in control” but also struggle to “assert themselves,” since asserting themselves often means “drawing attention to themselves” and potentially “violating social conventions.” At the same time, if they “don’t get what they want” for long enough, they can become quite frustrated. This is another reason they value solitude (easiest way to “be in control” and “get what they want” is if “no one else is around to disagree with them”).
Solitude (and freedom from concerns about social conventions) are how behind-the-scenes types recharge. Sometimes it’s as simple as “a quiet room” or “taking a walk outside,” other times they may need to be “much further away from other people” to recharge.
Structure/In Charge types want “something to manage.” They often “observe something” (it could be a problem, or a situation or status) and quickly develop a plan that they want to execute to “fix” or “make it better.” They are confident about this plan and want/expect others to cooperate. They favor issuing brief, direct instructions.
They tend to believe that there is 1 objectively correct answer (and are confident they know it), so they are often “less interested in what other people think or feel.” They tend to believe that “I know how we need to proceed, so you should listen to me, but (since I already know the correct answer), I don’t need to listen to you.” They can become frustrated if things “move too quickly” or if others “take too much initiative.” (They value control and can micro-manage.)
Some may favor “social/abstract” systems, while others prefer concrete systems (like monetary or technological systems). Some may prefer to “create” new systems, while others favor “testing” and “revising” existing ones.
Starters tend to have many ideas, and often try to engage “many ideas” all at once (or alternate between them very frequently). Their mind is full of possibilities, and they struggle to keep up with it all. Starters often need to “get their ideas out,” so they share the with others, (often) secretly hoping that the other person may “develop, contribute, or ‘help motivate” the starter, reducing the workload that the starter themselves carries.
Starters often find it easier to “focus” when they are “doing something.” When they are “not busy,” they can feel overwhelmed by the many ideas their mind comes up with. This means starters will often “improvise” or “invent something” so that they can “get started” and achieve the “focus” they desire. (They may also “wander off” to try and “find something” to engage (or observe) and focus on.)
Starters are often very responsible with “themselves, what’s theirs, and their surroundings.”
See-it-through types choose something and dedicate themselves to it (either a task or a subject/skill). They are driven to “accomplish something big.” Sometimes it’s a project that they start on their own, sometimes they “look for a project to join,” which guarantees that they are not the only ones who “believe in the project” (reducing the need to recruit).
Once a see-it-through type starts something, they do not “abandon the project” easily. They become very “attached” to the “plan” or “expectation” of how things are going to unfold (i.e. that they are going to finish the project).
