- PART II -
“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.” – Steve Jobs
Commanders are natural-born leaders. People with this personality type embody the gifts of charisma and confidence, and project authority in a way that draws crowds together behind a common goal. However, Commanders are also characterized by an often ruthless level of rationality, using their drive, determination and sharp minds to achieve whatever end they’ve set for themselves. Perhaps it is best that they make up only three percent of the population, lest they overwhelm the more timid and sensitive personality types that make up much of the rest of the world – but we have Commanders to thank for many of the businesses and institutions we take for granted every day.
If there’s anything Commanders love, it’s a good challenge, big or small, and they firmly believe that given enough time and resources, they can achieve any goal. This quality makes people with the Commander personality type brilliant entrepreneurs, and their ability to think strategically and hold a long-term focus while executing each step of their plans with determination and precision makes them powerful business leaders. This determination is often a self-fulfilling prophecy, as Commanders push their goals through with sheer willpower where others might give up and move on, and their Extraverted (E) nature means they are likely to push everyone else right along with them, achieving spectacular results in the process.
At the negotiating table, be it in a corporate environment or buying a car, Commanders are dominant, relentless, and unforgiving. This isn’t because they are coldhearted or vicious per se – it’s more that Commander personalities genuinely enjoy the challenge, the battle of wits, the repartee that comes from this environment, and if the other side can’t keep up, that’s no reason for Commanders to fold on their own core tenet of ultimate victory.
The underlying thought running through the Commander mind might be something like “I don’t care if you call me an insensitive b*****d, as long as I remain an efficient bastard”.
If there’s anyone Commanders respect, it’s someone who is able to stand up to them intellectually, who is able to act with a precision and quality equal to their own. Commander personalities have a particular skill in recognizing the talents of others, and this helps in both their team-building efforts (since no one, no matter how brilliant, can do everything alone), and to keep Commanders from displaying too much arrogance and condescension. However, they also have a particular skill in calling out others’ failures with a chilling degree of insensitivity, and this is where Commanders really start to run into trouble.
Emotional expression isn’t the strong suit of any Analyst type, but Commanders’ distance from their emotions is especially public, and felt directly by a much broader swath of people. Especially in a professional environment, Commanders will simply crush the sensitivities of those they view as inefficient, incompetent or lazy. To people with the Commander personality type, emotional displays are displays of weakness, and it’s easy to make enemies with this approach – Commanders will do well to remember that they absolutely depend on having a functioning team, not just to achieve their goals, but for their validation and feedback as well, something Commanders are, curiously, very sensitive to.
Commanders are true powerhouses, and they cultivate an image of being larger than life – and often enough they are. They need to remember though, that their stature comes not just from their own actions, but from the actions of the team that props them up, and that it’s important to recognize the contributions, talents and needs, especially from an emotional perspective, of their support network. Even if they have to adopt a “fake it ‘til you make it” mentality, if Commanders are able to combine an emotionally healthy focus alongside their many strengths, they will be rewarded with deep, satisfying relationships and all the challenging victories they can handle.
On the outside, Mediators (INFPs) may seem quiet or even shy. But they often have vibrant, passionate inner lives. Because they make up such a small portion of the population, people with this personality type may sometimes feel misunderstood or out of step with the world. Fortunately, their caring nature can help them create and sustain deep relationships with their loved ones.
Mediators value authenticity, empathy, and harmony. These personalities tend to act with the best of intentions, and they are rightly proud of this trait. That said, they may feel isolated or discouraged when other people don’t share their idealism.
“All that is gold does not glitter; not all those who wander are lost; the old that is strong does not wither; deep roots are not reached by the frost.“ – J.R.R. Tolkien
Many Mediators are curious about the depths of human nature, and they often make an effort to understand other people’s true feelings. This can make them capable of great empathy. It can also enable them to communicate in ways that are sensitive, original, and quite moving.
Perhaps because of these strengths, Mediators tend to crave opportunities for creative self-expression. It comes as no surprise that many famous Mediators are poets, writers, and actors. People with this personality type often enjoy dreaming up all sorts of stories and possibilities.
Mediators have a talent for self-expression. They may reveal their innermost thoughts and secrets through metaphors and fictional characters.
By using their imaginations in this way, Mediators can explore their inner nature and their place in the world. That said, they can have a tendency to daydream and fantasize rather than take action. If they don’t act on their dreams and ideas, Mediators are likely to end up feeling frustrated or unfulfilled.
Mediators may feel directionless or stuck unless they connect with a sense of purpose for their lives. For many Mediators, this purpose has something to do with helping and uplifting others. Empathetic by nature, these personalities may feel other people’s suffering as if it were their own. This only strengthens their motivation to be of service.
Although Mediators might want to help everyone, they may need to focus their attention and energy on one worthy cause at a time. Otherwise, they can become so overwhelmed by all the problems they can’t fix that they’re tempted to give up on even trying. This is a sad sight for Mediators’ friends, who often depend on their hopeful outlook.
Fortunately, like flowers in the spring, Mediators’ creativity and idealism can bloom even after the darkest of seasons. Although they know the world will never be perfect, Mediators still care about making it better however they can. This quiet belief in doing the right thing may explain why these personalities so often inspire compassion, kindness, and beauty wherever they go.
The mechanisms are going to be literally as simple as you can get while still having a fully articulate leg. Basically, no synthetic muscle-fibers. I was very explicit that such things are beyond my skill to replicate without help. The array of machines and nano-processors are still going to be complex, but not so complex that I can’t fix it with my personal set of tools. More importantly, though, a lot of the space we freed up is going to be used to install minor machinery for self-repair, which would keep the knee and ankle together if things get out of hand, which they probably would.
ALSO THIS, which I’m making:
>It’s a looping, ten second video of various chassis panels, laid out flat on a table. If you were to tilt your head and squint, you could recognize a leg, even a foot, being made from these parts; or at least, a leg and foot is meant to be covered by these parts. More importantly is Mar’s hand, holding a wire that runs to the table, vanishing under and reemerging out from each of the milky-white panels. As Mar’s doll-joint tattoos glow softly blue with the light discharge of magic, each of the chassis panels begin to glow blue… and then purple, and then pink, red, orange, yellow, green, back to blue, and then a much brighter white, and even a black that casts a magic light, somehow.<
The second prototype is very leg-shaped. As it turns out, Al and I were forced to acknowledge that in order to get what I want out of a custom prosthetic, we need more space. Essentially, Ullidium Connectors are going to move energy up and down the leg, which is going to save a lot of space that we need for for power and backups and stuff.
Ullidium is a funny little alloy Al invented years ago that is easily mistaken for silver, but it doesn’t oxidize and it’s capable of conducting magic and electricity. Not at the same time, but what that means is that we can have two different backup batteries, one magic, and one mundane, without having to install two different systems of wires and motors and shit.
I’m kinda crash-coursing through a lot of technology right now, cause I want to be able to modify and fix this shit on my own.

BITTERNESS Okay, wait, let me explain: You’re not a bitter person, not by any means, but you don’t…articulate your feelings very well. You hide behind all of the walls you’ve built and you live inside a castle. Bitterness is your defense mechanism.
You don’t want to be a bad person and you don’t want to make people feel bad—and, honey, you don’t. We know. We know things are hard and trusting people is hard. We know you’re trying your best and you don’t need to be the nicest person in the world. You’ve just got to be true to yourself and try to be as good as you can be—and I know sometimes that doesn’t feel like enough.
You don’t feel like you’re good; you’re not as kind and caring and lovely as some people; you’re sharp and tough sometimes; your life and your feelings aren’t all pretty and sugar sweet. That’s okay. They don’t need to be. The people in your life are there because they want to be. Don’t ever think you’re a burden or that they’re only there because they feel like they have to be. They love you. And because of that, they’re in it for the long run. It’s going to be okay. You don’t need to be sugary sweet to be deserving of love.
