IEE Characteristic description (machine translation)

WSS - The Explorer


Fundamental to the IEE is an eye for interesting, new opportunities and the desire to pursue these opportunities, putting aside what they are currently doing in order to see how the next, novel thing might turn out. IEEs cannot tolerate monotony or narrow repetition and instead follow a pattern of whimsically switching from one thing that captures their fascination to the next, starting up a variety of projects and keeping less interesting ones on hold while those that are most novel are worked on with great enthusiasm. The greatest motivation for IEEs is their limitless curiosity for the world around them and an open-mindedness to the various perspectives of the many people that inhabit it. IEEs frequently see life as a constant adventure, trying to see as much as possible in their time available. IEEs look for the inner potential in other people, seeing what others could go on to do in the right conditions and, if fascinating enough, putting aside their time to enable the fulfilment of this potential. Often their lives are filled with unusual or eye-catching experiences, or are a continued excavation into the great variety that life has to offer. Throughout, the often chaotic drive for novelty and variation creates a never ending whimsicality in these types that can be hard to rein in or predict.

In their pursuit of the possibilities, IEEs readily build a rapport with the people they meet. Frequently, IEEs will be known to have a wonderful variety of acquaintances from multiple walks of life. Nothing is more interesting to an IEE than a new person with unknown qualities they will put a lot of curious energy into drawing out and discovering. When beginning a new adventure, the IEE will likely know the perfect person from their long, internal list of contacts to help with the job and will not hesitate in calling them and getting them interested. With a good command of their personal relations, IEEs know how to gain the trust and friendship of others and acquire their help with their latest interests. Similarly, IEEs often see themselves as enablers of new opportunities, seeing the specialness of certain individuals whose hidden gifts need to be uncovered. However, the contrast between the number of acquaintances IEEs have and true, close friends is stark. IEEs are readily discerning of the people they talk to and can intuitively judge the level of closeness they want to maintain with that person. They instinctively get a sense of rapport with each individual, knowing if someone feels right or wrong for them. This can manifest as a social pattern for IEEs, becoming excited when meeting new people, before settling into less enchanted attitude with less special individuals over time. IEEs keep many at a pleasant but casual distance, but to the few with they see with greatest potential and goodness, they will entrust themselves fully to.


IEEs tend to be free spirits who cannot stand to feel constrained or bound by inflexible structures or commitments. Often the IEE will express difficulty and frustration with being required to follow laws to the letter and will find themselves indulging as series of special exceptions, bending the rules according to what seems to work best in that moment. Similarly, they do not tend to follow any system or theory faithfully, but instead borrow bits and pieces from different perspectives that they think can work, even if these sources fundamentally contradict each other, making their behaviour hard to predict and their views harder to pin down as belonging to any particular camp. In short, for IEEs, everything is understood and approached on a case-by-case basis, and even their explanations will rest much more on a series of examples than an underlying principle. This can open them up to the criticism of not being fair or impartial with others, as they will prefer to rely on their personal relationships with each person, rather than a general rule. 

IEE are not naturally assertive people, and in general, strongly dislike conflict, much preferring to maintain harmonious relationships with others. By default, they prefer to give people the benefit of the doubt and can be very forgiving of other people's faults. However, when push comes to shove, they can take charge and summon the energy necessary to go after their latest interest and their energy in doing so can be quite compelling. Nevertheless, pitting themselves against another is too direct for an IEE’s tastes and they much prefer to find some alternative approach or angle that allows them follow their whims while avoiding confrontations altogether. They also are less able to force themselves to do things they are not personally interested in, often lacking discipline. IEEs are not natural fighters and when forced to maintain a more active resistance for too long, the strain will begin to show. IEEs will more likely drop the issue to pursue one of the many other interesting things on their list.


Many IEEs will aspire to be self-sufficient, productive individuals that are able to manage things without the help or assistance of others. This can instil in them a strong desire for self-improvement and mastery over a range of helpful, practical skills. When they encounter something that is too difficult, the IEE will take great fulfilment from improving themselves to the point they can overcome the difficulty. They may put great value into their own education and reading up on subjects that interest them to a degree where they feel they can be competent. Despite this, an IEE will often not appreciate being told what to do or how to do things by others. Instead, they seek the freedom to do things on their own terms, asking for advice when they have already tried and failed in accomplishing the task themselves. This can make IEEs quite capable and organised if they apply themselves, enjoying the challenge of solving problems and making things in their lives work better. Many IEEs will take pleasure in showing to themselves that they can understand how an issue works and will gain personal satisfaction from being able to explain things to their friends in a simple, practical way that they can easily understand, away from anything too structural or composed of complicated terminologies.

IEEs tend to live rather haphazard and chaotic lifestyles. This can often mean that daily requirements, such as maintaining a household, cooking and cleaning can fall by the wayside as the IEE jumps after the latest, newest excitement. Nevertheless, the IEE can be highly appreciative of aesthetics, health and leisurely relaxation, liking nothing more than peaceful, comfortable environments and enjoying anything that combines quirkiness or individuality with physical beauty. IEEs love to be pampered and will respond very positively to a gift that makes their lives more physically pleasant, especially if it satisfies some of their more unusual and unique tastes. Often an IEE will have cultivated a favourite snacks or sensations that cause them to, even when angry, quickly forget their troubles when given them. To IEEs, sensory experience is another window of opportunity and they will be very open to trying something new at another’s suggestion, often taking on new favourites if they happen to like what they have tried. Instead of displays of wealth or power, an IEE will be more impressed by those who are modest, but better able to enjoy and make the most of what they have, as well as those who work with aesthetic skill and detailed finesse.


IEEs are very much in favour of the idea that there are multiple ways of looking at anything and that where there is a possibility, it should be given a chance. For this reason, they are unlikely to relate well to the idea that things are necessarily going to happen one way and that things less probable are a waste of time. Much of their energy will be directed towards enabling things to happen, rather than putting out the fire on an unconventional, but practical idea. Despite this, IEEs are quite capable of thinking ahead and seeing how things are likely to turn out. Usually, this will take the form of visualising how far a possibility is likely to go, when it shows the beginnings of potential. This can allow them to visualise the likely path a relationship with someone may go, or how a person of interest may develop. When IEEs latch onto something that captures their interest, an IEE will have a great urge to run after it straight away, disliking the idea of having to wait for it to happen as if it can be taken for granted. In general IEEs prefer not to plan things too carefully as they feel this might be committing them to a particular course of events and cutting out other possibilities that might arise later as being more interesting. As such, they may be hard to pin down to any fixture or event, finding other plans and calling out at the last minute or refusing to commit at all until the last minute, hating the idea of letting their friends down by saying 'yes'. However, when they do turn up, it makes for a pleasant surprise.

IEEs are often emotionally bright, mercurial people and easily communicate their feelings to others in a way that is well received, making them almost universally likeable. When they are excited, upset or angry, IEEs may feel the need to discharge their emotions to their close friends and family. However, IEEs are less interested in making others aware of their issues and to try and affect people's emotional responses. Overall, their emotions are their own, and any communication is more non-deliberate, i.e. a reflection of how they are feeling, rather than an attempt to manage the mood. Simply by being happy and around those they enjoy, IEEs end up brightening the atmosphere, but do not set out to make it so. Similarly, although averse to disharmony, when depressed or around people they are not familiar with, the IEE will not feel the need to keep up appearances. In their emotions, IEEs will be fundamentally erratic, and how they act and express themselves may vary much from day to day. Furthermore, IEEs will avoid any expectation that they should sacrifice their self-sufficiency for the sake of belonging to any group. Instead, IEEs will prefer unofficial ties with many different individuals for different occasions. In doing so, they avoid feeling beholden to any community, or pressured to adjust their lifestyle for the sake of acceptance. Often they will find the expressive, loud humour of others over-the-top, and will instead opt for something more reserved, dry or witty.
