How to Know God’s Will (How to Make Decisions as a Christian)

Satan is really attacking my mind right now, since my rent went up $75.00. I have to admit, I was not expecting this and he’s trying to shake my faith. I refuse to let him! I need to create a page with very important sermons by John MacArthur and listen to them over and over at this stage in my life.

Silver Skies Characters Keane Horton & Rachel Ben Habbakuk (Myers-Briggs)

CHARACTERS IN STORIES AND THEIR TYPES: https://funkymbtifiction.tumblr.com/characterlist


KEANE HORTON CHARACTER ENTP (somewhat like Zack Knight):

Here is another Silver Skies antagonist/villain, who experiences a major character arc. He is Keane Horton (who shares the Antichrist role with Rachel), who chases Brianna around and tries to convince her to marry him. His goal is to destroy Dor’s true love, so that Dor cannot carry out his divine mission for God. He is the debater personality and he always confronts Brianna and Dor about their hypocrisy in their religious service for God. He tries to pose himself as the solution to Brianna’s romantic woes, saying Dor is a weak man not worthy of her. He ends up truly loving another antagonist character, who has the same personality as New Ager Franz Wilhelm (Brianna’s father).

Keane Horton is very much like Zack Knight, ex-Antichrist. The woman he loves truly is very much like Rule 13. Can’t say more or I’ll ruin the book for you. He only became a physician to cover up who he really is, so he’s not your ideal physician, though he’s a genius. He chose to be a surgeon, cuz he likes being inventive with surgery. https://mbtifiction.com/2014/11/08/eleventh-doctor-entp/

This will be a subplot that will mirror the main plot in many ways and help reinforce the theme of the novel about love conquers all.

I think I’ll use this character for comic relief. It gets pretty intense at the end! Click on images below for larger view.

RACHEL BEN HABAKKUK CHARACTER ESTJ – turbulent (like Loree McBride):

It is important for me to have a three-dimensional antagonist/villain in Silver Skies. The antagonist is Dor’s wife Rachel, who married him to destroy him, knowing in advance that he would be God’s instrument to take down the Antichrist. She plays the role of Antichrist, though I spread this role across several characters at the beginning. Rachel is very much like Loree McBride or Angelina Ballerina (deceased).

She is brutal and only cares about results and meeting her goals. She has the heart of Satan. Her true husband is a Dor clone who will have the same personality profile as Keane Horton: Debater/Inventor. Will use those with the same personalities to contrast those who follow light versus darkness in the same personality profile. Rachel is a combination of the executive personality and the sociopath. Myers Briggs does not address sociopathy that much. To make Rachel believable, she will have an honor code that she abides by when dealing with those she respects. But to gain her respect, you have to be a lowlife and have a sociopath mindset. Click on images below for larger view.

The Russian President character in Silver Skies is patterned after Vladimir Putin, who is ISTJ: https://www.16personalities.com/istj-strengths-and-weaknesses?fbclid=IwAR0ddctLzZEZa6nfG4VlQpCrIN2LKijbXcLHyNjySDd_sGvxIh0pUckljsQ

Anyone of any personality type can be a narcissist (someone who lacks empathy and exploits others). And certainly, one’s Myers-Briggs personality type is not the end-all be-all of someone’s personality, though it can give some accurate insights into one’s behavior and motives. There are many factors that play a role in how personality is manifested in an individual.

But how would each specific MBTI type behave if they were void of empathyLet’s have a look:

INTJs and INTPs as narcissists would take their rational side way too far. They would be the epitome of what we call the “cerebral narcissist,” using twisted logic to rationalize any mess or situation they’ve created. They would be prone to dehumanizing others all in the name of reason. Their logical side would be so overblown that they would fail to have any empathy for victims of unfortunate circumstances or crimes – including the crimes they themselves committed!

INFJs and INFPs as narcissists would abuse their power as changemakers and would be ‘covert’ narcissists – wolves in sheep’s clothing. They would take their perfectionism and ability to cut off relationships to the extreme by frequently ghosting people and criticizing them to the nth degree. Rather than using their platforms to help support the populations they serve, they might attempt to use them to feed their grandiosity.

ENFJs are natural born influencers and ‘teachers’ that would demand that their ‘students’ worship them. As narcissists, they may become predatory and cross boundaries with those they’re ‘educating.’

ENFPs as narcissists would always be seeking validation and attention from others. These would probably be the more ‘vulnerable’ narcissists of the group, using their relationships with others to hide their core sense of shame.

ENTJs and ESTJs are known for their bluntness, business acumen and ability to lead. As narcissists, however, their leadership would become a dictatorship. They would micromanage people and overpower them – not for the purpose of organizational efficiency, but for the purpose of feeling superior.

ENTPs and ESTPs are natural-born devil’s advocates, so as narcissists, this trait would be exaggerated in their ability to provoke and demean others. They would argue in favor of horrific crimes or blatant inequalities just to get a rise out of the people they’re debating with. They would be hypercritical and abrasive, as well as emotionally abusive. Their cruel bluntness would be disguised as, “That’s just the way I am.”

ESFJas narcissists would create enmeshed relationships and have no problem violating the boundaries of others. As healthy individuals, they are empathic and giving. But as narcissists, they would ‘give’ only to get back. They may give the bare minimum to people and demand the maximum in return.

ESFPs are socialites who tend to be the life of the party. As narcissists, they would create harems of adoring fans that cater to their every need and ‘get off’ on all of the attention they’re receiving. They love to be the center of attention and would be perpetual spotlight-hoggers. They are also very into aesthetics, so they may present as a more ‘somatic’ narcissist – someone overly obsessed with their looks and appearance.

ISTJs as narcissists would stonewall their partners, shutting down arguments even before they’ve had a chance to begin. They would be extremely traditional in the way they view things and use moralistic thinking to control others, all while engaging in hypocritical behavior behind closed doors. In the realm of work, they would gravitate towards careers in power – such as that of law enforcement – just to abuse their power and get away with it.

ISFPs and ISTPs are gentle as non-narcissists, but as narcissists would present as pessimistic misanthropes. They would be the ones constantly griping about how unfair the world is, how they’re always the victim and how they never get their fair share. They would work to underhandedly sabotage anyone who has what they covet.

ISFJs are generous to a fault as non-narcissists. However, as narcissists, they would present as the quintessential covert, shy and introverted helper with a hidden entitled streak. Although they will appear humble at the onset, make no mistake, they will be taking note of everything they do for you and any time they feel they’re not getting the attention or appreciation they deserve. They will lash out in a terrifying display of narcissistic rage if they don’t get what they want.

PAULA AND FRANZ WILHELM RELATIONSHIP:

Building the ISFJ – ENFJ relationship: https://www.personality-central.com/relationships/isfj-enfj-relationship

FRANZ WILHELM CHARACTER (ENFJ):

I had to take the test three times to get this character. The first time I got Commander, which isn’t him at all. The next time, I got Mediator, which is ME and it’s not him either. I got it right on the third try. He’s Protagonist. I have to admit this character is a conundrum. He’s a private investigator, but he does his work for the government in secret and is a big New Ager trying to help the government bring in the New Age. He doesn’t really know who he is for most of the book. His heart is in politics and his dreams. He’s a very complex character and I still need to research more for him. But he’s not shallow and callous. I had trouble getting into him, because I’ve been ignoring him in favor of the other two characters. When I get down to actually writing him, it will be after all my research is finished and I should do well then.

Franz Wilhelm is the most conflicted of all the characters and has the deepest character arc. Yet I don’t make him the main main character, because the Dor character is a strong Mentor character that I need for the last third of the book. Dor also experiences a strong character arc, but he’s the MOVER of the book. He makes things happen, inspired by his true love Brianna. Dor is the one who moves mountains. Brianna inspires him and Franz starts off sorta evil and transforms. I enjoy writing stories about “evil” characters who transform. In fact, the next book in the Silver Skies series will feature a main main character who is a dark character who transforms. I mainly put Franz into the book, to give the story emotional breadth and show the viewpoint of the antagonist from another angle. The woman he dates (Jackie) is the same is he in personality. She will end up with another character who is very important in the book.

In fact, I credit my writing for giving me the insights to lead the Antichrist Zack Knight to Jesus. I understood this guy by observing him to make him a character in my novels.

You might say, how can you, being a woman, write male leads? Well, I’ve been studying men all my life. It’s my passion. I know them pretty well now. And the King David genes are strong in me, so in some respects I’m manly.

His wife Paula is an ISFJ and she nags him too much, which led him to have an affair of sorts. She thinks his views are crazy and let’s him know. Click on images below for larger views.

Silver Skies 1996 Version to Feature Loree McBride, Brent Spiner CLONE

Silver Skies 11022018 1996 Version

For those who are waiting for my masterpiece to come out, I am working very hard on this novel, because I want it to be as true to reality as possible. I have done a deep and thorough study of Bible prophecy, so that this novel may well end up being a prophecy. Those of you who have read my Silver Skies novel, where I have published the first two-thirds with a crappy ending, may notice that I worked clones into the story, but it didn’t work, because I just tacked it on at the end without it being an organic part of the story all along.

My biggest complaint about today’s authors is that they all sound alike and very few have a unique, stand-out literary voice. I hope to break that trend and be a true STAND OUT VOICE in literature. The forces aligned against me are titanic, but I have Jesus and the talent he’s given me on my side. To do this, I’ll have to work outside mainstream publishing because Loree McBride regulates that, which explains why everything sounds the same.

Most who publish independently are not as committed to the writing craft as I am and take shortcuts that make their writing appear sloppy and not professional and they fail to develop their characters, theme and plot enough to write something that makes a difference OR they are obsessed with trying to write something that is “professional” and end up drowning their unique voice because they yearn to be professionally published. I don’t GIVE A FLIP about professional publication and am PROUD to be INDEPENDENTLY published. I choose independence because I want my own UNIQUE VOICE TO SHINE and not be drowned out just cuz I don’t meet some guidelines. I FLAUNT the guidelines and write a truthful story, even if I’m the only one doing it. I write with the motive to write something that will last for posterity. I have been working on Silver Skies since 1993, but admit to a long time of writer’s block. I finished two-thirds in the 1990s and then just dropped it. But I have a vision for the last third now and this book is gonna be great.

You might say, you should give your book to readers. I have chosen not to do this for several reasons: 1) the ones who have the ability to critique it accurately will probably be too kind to me, 2) the rest, those who critique it unfairly, will be a waste of my time. As an intuitive writer, I use my intuition to critique it. I read it and see if it affects me emotionally. If not, I know I need to get back to work! God has given me the ability to critique my own writing. I usually only have to sit on it for a month at the most and I can pick it up and see what’s wrong and what’s right. This is a God-given talent that I have. So when I finish Silver Skies 1996 Version, I will immediately get to work on its sequel Silver Skies: The Millennium, and then, after about a month, will take a look at Silver Skies 1996 Version and see if I still like it. Then after I give it a final polish, out it goes!

I am in NO HURRY. You can’t write a masterpiece overnight. But the book is coming along.

Let’s just put it this way, I am confident when I finish this book that it will make no. 1 on the New York Times bestseller list again. Of course, you never hear about this in mainstream news and I never make money off of it. Loree ensures that I remain a “poor” writer. But when I read it and cry, that is my payment.

When I finish Silver Skies 1996 Version, I will remove the current Silver Skies that I have available at Amazon. This version I am currently working on, is the one I want the world to see. https://gabriellechana.blog/silver-skies-1996-version/

https://gabriellechana.blog/2019/02/17/silver-skies-theme-song-apple-blossom-time/

You see, when I wrote Silver Skies in the 1990s I was unaware of cloning technology and that Loree McBride is a clone. I just thought she was a crazy Vatican agent. In fact, I wasn’t even aware of Loree McBride! So the mere fact that I created a villain who is so much like her, attests to my brilliance in creating characters. Now I realize that the existence of clones has a major impact on all that’s happening in our world today, especially in politics, the media and among those who have influence in our world.

I will market the novel as an epic Christian fantasy novel, but the novel is very autobiographical.

“Most of the events in Silver Skies are a matter of history, with future events depicted according to the author’s understanding of Bible prophecy. There may be persons alive who took part in events similar to those described in the book. But the author has extrapolated from fact and created mostly fictional characters. Though most characters are based on real life persons in the author’s life, none of them is one hundred percent like the real life person, except that the author believes clones do exist and play a major role in current events and will play a role in future events. Names have been changed though and no character has the name of the person they resemble. Like occurs in real life, the author will portray clones as operating undercover while impersonating the famous people they steal identities from. Because these views are deemed paranoid schizophrenic, the author chooses to publish independently, and won’t waste her time using (or trying to use) traditional publishers or literary agents. Despite this, the author has striven to write a book that is ‘traditional publisher worthy’ in every way and hopefully, will transform the readers. Though the author markets this as Christian epic fantasy, she thinks it will be one of the most truthful, thoughtful and layered books to hit the markets in a millennium with a deep emotional resonance that will move the readers (with a blend between Colleen McCullough’s The Thornbirds and Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings in its “voice”). In fact, the author believes future tribulation saints will read this like a prophecy. Loree McBride and the Jesuits, using clone versions of the Internet, steal monies from those who expose them, so the author expects to make almost nothing from this book, except when she gets to heaven, where Jesus will give her five crowns (crown of righteousness, crown of life, crown of glory, crown of incorruption, crown of rejoicing). This novel is a labor of love that honors true love.”

How can I do this without losing money when Loree McBride steals 98% or more of my writing proceeds? I create and design all my own books. I do all the editing, all the writing, all the marketing, all the covers, all the design, all the manuscript submission to Amazon. Amazon has a great set up for writers who have a little bit of computer know-how and know how to design and market their own books. I use GIMP to design my book covers. I use Microsoft Word to do the writing and the outlines. I edit myself. You can operate at very minimal cost this way. The Lord has given me talent in all the areas I need to put out the book. I am an artist, writer, book cover designer and good at English. Though I’ll admit, I sometimes flaunt the grammar rules to have my own style. I have learned how to set up the manuscript for Amazon publication and Amazon allows author to do this all for free if they know how to do it.

I only spend money on food and bills and live very frugally. I even cut my own hair! I live like a missionary. I bought some beautician sheers and figured out how to cut my own hair. It’s amazing what you can learn when you put your mind to it! I’ve been coloring my own hair since 2001.

The area where it’s costing me, is that I’ve had to buy some books on writing craft, for research and for inspiration to help me with the actual writing. But I don’t pay anybody for marketing, publishing or creating my book. I do it all myself! The book is not ready to be published until I can read it and CRY because of the catharsis I get from reading it. I have already written the ending, so I know what I’m working towards. You might say, what if it only makes YOU cry? I’m pretty picky about what makes me cry, folks! I’m not given to overt sentimentality.

I’m, apparently, very talented.

I paid a publisher once to publish, BIG MISTAKE, cuz the Jesuits took over RoseDog books. I’ve learned to do it all myself. That way I can BE SURE that the book turns out the way I want. Jesuits always take over anybody or any company who tries to help me write, publish or market a book, so I’m a very INDEPENDENT writer.

Just think, back in Emily Bronte’s day, they didn’t have computers, fancy publishers, marketers, etc. and Emily Bronte’s Wuthering Heights is far better than most of what’s coming out today by big name writers who pay for all this fancy stuff. You don’t need all this stuff to write great.

You might say, but what about Amazon? Fortunately, for me, Jeff Bezos is a graduate of Miami Palmetto Sr. High, where I went to high school and one of my biggest fans. Amazon has been a great place for me to publish my books. If you’ve noticed, I’ve never criticized Jeff Bezos. Not saying he’s perfect, but he’s treated me right. There are a lot of problems in the world, but, to me, the greatest problem is Loree McBride and her sidekick Satan! So that’s who I’m focused on, not all this other stuff. Jesus does not want me focused on today’s politics. He says this stuff makes no difference for the future tribulation.

You might say, you will get sued for defamation. Well, the parts that are negative and resemble real life are TRUE and you can’t sue for defamation and win, when it’s TRUE. If they want to go after me for defamation, they’ll have to go through my men first and Judge Terrance Jenkins (one of my men) is a Harvard Law School graduate. I’m not going to state which character is patterned after Loree or which is patterned after the Brent Spiner clone (will ruin the book for you), but the readers will figure it out!

In actuality, Silver Skies must be pretty good, because Steven Spielberg made a movie based on the first two-thirds which I wrote in the 1990s. Unfortunately, I rewrote what I did in the 1990s and made it worse (and that’s what’s up at Amazon right now) and the movie is not based on my horrible rewrites but what I originally wrote. Spielberg will probably love the ending I am creating for Silver Skies now. Once I finish Silver Skies 1996 Version, I will remove what I have up at Amazon. I can’t seem to remove the RoseDog books version. I don’t know why, even though I told them to take it down.

You might say, but you did horrible rewrites, so you must not be talented at critiquing your own work. I did the rewrites when I wasn’t up on the writing craft (I hadn’t been working on my writing for years at the time) and just did them fast to give Spielberg an ending to the movie he made from the book. But that’s not the case today. I deliberately reread all the craft books that made me the writer I was in the 1990s and am getting back to the mindset I had back then when I wrote the first two-thirds (which is masterpiece, by the way). Now, when I read the work, I tune into my intuition and listen to it. That’s how I critiqued it in the 1990s. I’m back where I was then! I have relearned the craft that I had forgotten.

Oh, by the way, when I wrote the first two-thirds I didn’t give it to readers. I critiqued it myself using my intuition. That is how I will operate when I write the last part of Silver Skies 1996 Version. I have brilliant intuition that operates at high genius level. As long as I’m in “the zone” and allow my intuition to operate while I work on it, this book will be great.

What works for me probably won’t work for most writers, unless they are intuitive types like I am. So don’t assume that my way is the only way or that I feel my way is the only way. I also understand that writers need to eat. Because I don’t need writing money to survive, this frees me up to write for passion and not get so stressed out that I can’t write cuz of bill collectors at my door. Believe me, I’ve been there and you can’t write when you have to obsess about the bills. I’m not rich by any means, but I’m not worried about bill collectors either. It’s amazing how much you can live on, if you just buy only what you need for food and bills. I also have strong faith in Jesus and know he will take care of me. I take it one day at a time. I make some sacrifices that some people wouldn’t be comfortable with, but money is not my God and I trust Jesus to take care of me.

I never eat out. I don’t worry about going to the dentist, but I take very good care of my teeth using my Sonicaire electric toothbrush. I never have been an “eat out” type of person any ways. I cook everything from scratch. I drive around in a rusty old car and am trusting Jesus to keep that going until I can get another one. But I’m able to write (my passion) and consider myself lucky for this reason. I paid off all my credit cards and don’t live in debt, which I consider a sin, by the way. I ripped up all my credit cards. The Bible says to owe no man anything. I don’t take out loans. I don’t use credit cards.

I follow the Gail Commandments and this keeps me healthy. https://gabriellechana.blog/2018/05/06/gail-commandments/

I’ve learned, like the great missionary, James Hudson Taylor, that I can live on a lot less than I previously thought possible.

Steven Spielberg and my men have worked on the Silver Skies movie as a labor of love. Latest I heard is that it is not available mainstream and is offered for free to the public where it’s shown at certain select theaters. I started off my fiction writing career as a screenwriter and so when I abandoned screenwriting and went to novels, I transferred the strengths I gained as a screenwriter. For this reason, my novels have strong characters, plots, and dialogue.

I approached writing a novel, by thinking of it as a movie in my mind, forming pictures and sounds in my mind that I put onto the page. It took some practice, but now I’m good at it. I personally think screenwriting training is great training for a novelist. It forces you to think deeply about the characters, theme and plot. Once you master this, then you can work on getting the words right (the “voice”). But when you know your character deeply, you can write from intuition getting into your character’s soul and then the words just flow, as if the character takes you over and writes the words for you. In fact, some of the craft books that have been the most helpful to me as a novelist, have been books about screenwriting. Perhaps this is why Spielberg loves my stories!

If you are an INFJ, INFP, ENFJ or ENFP, you need to read The INFJ Writer, especially if you are a writer! Lauren really helps you understand what makes you as an NF type tick and how to apply that to your work. https://gabriellechana.blog/2019/03/04/lauren-sapala-a-great-writer-to-watch/

I tried very hard to answer honestly. I  want the world to know what I scored, not because I think I’m better than everybody else, but to show that how Loree McBride tries to portray me to the world is woefully inaccurate. I am not a crazy, paranoid schizophrenic!

My honesty/humility score is 4.31, way above average. My courage is not based on arrogance, but on devotion to my purpose (to help Jesus make this world a better place).

My emotionality score is 2.75, below average. This is probably because I try very hard to be objective and not allow emotion to influence my judgment. This is how I am able to make videos that call a spade a spade, and make Loree fuming mad at me. Also, with a high altruism score, and knowing that Loree is against everything that I feel makes the world a beautiful place, I’m highly motivated to take her down as long as she remains a toxic person. I could forgive her in a second, if she ever got right with God. But my objective side says this is highly unlikely, not with Satan feeding her on and enabling her to be evil. Unlike Zack Knight, she’s a sociopath. Zack had a mild case of narcissism, so he was reachable. As they say, never cross an INFP or try to block an INFP from following their life’s purpose (something they believe in), which is what Loree does to me. An INFP will climb mountains to oppose anyone who tries to block the INFP from doing his life’s mission!

My eXtraversion score is 2.88, meaning I have a tendency toward introversion. This is true. I dislike crowds and need time alone to think about life and daydream.

My agreeableness score is very high at 3.88 (almost off the charts high), meaning I am very forgiving, gentle, flexible and patient. Loree interprets this to mean I suffer from delusions and am easy prey to con artists. No, I’m just a very forgiving person. With a low emotionality score, I tend to be objective and see people for what they are.

My conscientiousness score at 3.31 is slightly below average, meaning I am not strong in discipline and organization. This is because I am a creative, free spirit. I admit this is probably one of my weaknesses and Jesus has told me to work on this. Probably one of the reasons he gave me the Gail Commandments. https://gabriellechana.blog/2018/05/06/gail-commandments/

My openness to experience is above average at 4.0, indicating that I am a creative, free spirit and tend to flaunt social conventions.

My altruism is high at 4.25, meaning I live for others more than for myself.

BRIANNA WILHELM CHARACTER ESFJ:

I took the Myers Briggs test for my Silver Skies main character Brianna Wilhelm. I listen to the music playlist I composed for each character while taking the test for them. This is my female lead (nurse and teacher), a very important character. She’s a catalyst character, always going first into thresholds and is very supportive of the lead character Dor. She’s a full fledged heroine in her own right and I have great admiration for her. She has a tendency to get impatient with her lover Dor, thinking he needs to take more risks in the romance department.

Brianna reminds me of who I THOUGHT I was when I was young and unformed. I just go back into the person that I tried to force myself to be when I was a young lady. It was not a bad person, but not who I am. Brianna has to learn to accept the intuitive type, which she admires but does not understand well. I am undecided whether to give her a strong character arc. I may figure it out during the writing. She is the one who changes the least, though. Her strong faith in Jesus sustains her through much of the story and her main problem is that she needs to understand and respect differences between people. But she’s extraordinarily brave and committed.

DOR BEN HABAKKUK CHARACTER INFJ:

Dor is a rabbi and scholar, with a passionate soul. He is very idealistic and has big dreams. He is a very important character in Silver Skies and inspired by his great love for Brianna, will climb mountains in the story!

These Myers Briggs test usually pair up extroverts with introverts and both Brent and I are introverts. I think the reason Brent and I work so well, is that Brent has healed my insecurities and I am now a confident introvert, who acts much like an extrovert, and so introvert Brent and I work well together. Because I’m an introvert, I understand him well and give him the space he needs. On the other hand, being a confident introvert, I give him the extrovert balance he needs.

Dor Ben Habakkuk is more like Brent Spiner than any other character in Silver Skies. If you click on any of the images below, they will open to a separate page.

DOR AND BRIANNA RELATIONSHIP:

As a romance writer, gotta focus on those relationships in my novel! But my romances are also epic and fantasy. Building the INFJ – ESFJ relationship: https://www.personality-central.com/relationships/infp-esfj-relationship

Interesting that Jesus Christ, Ralph of The Thornbirds, and Brent Spiner and Dor Ben Habakkuk are INFJ. Dor will change history in Silver Skies and his actions will be instrumental in transforming the entire earth. Brianna will be his inspiration, to show that kindness is powerful. An ESFJ character that is close to Brianna Wilhelm is Dorothy of Wizard of Oz. Catherine Earnshaw of Wuthering Heights, though female, is close to Franz Wilhelm as an EFNJ. This is why Franz Wilhelm is drawn to the New Age movement, because he is a real free spirit. His wife Paula (ISFJ) is more of a traditionalist like Christine (ISFJ) from Phantom of the Opera.

The Russian President character in Silver Skies is patterned after Vladimir Putin, who is ISTJ: https://www.16personalities.com/istj-strengths-and-weaknesses?fbclid=IwAR0ddctLzZEZa6nfG4VlQpCrIN2LKijbXcLHyNjySDd_sGvxIh0pUckljsQ

Anyone of any personality type can be a narcissist (someone who lacks empathy and exploits others). And certainly, one’s Myers-Briggs personality type is not the end-all be-all of someone’s personality, though it can give some accurate insights into one’s behavior and motives. There are many factors that play a role in how personality is manifested in an individual.

But how would each specific MBTI type behave if they were void of empathyLet’s have a look:

INTJs and INTPs as narcissists would take their rational side way too far. They would be the epitome of what we call the “cerebral narcissist,” using twisted logic to rationalize any mess or situation they’ve created. They would be prone to dehumanizing others all in the name of reason. Their logical side would be so overblown that they would fail to have any empathy for victims of unfortunate circumstances or crimes – including the crimes they themselves committed!

INFJs and INFPs as narcissists would abuse their power as changemakers and would be ‘covert’ narcissists – wolves in sheep’s clothing. They would take their perfectionism and ability to cut off relationships to the extreme by frequently ghosting people and criticizing them to the nth degree. Rather than using their platforms to help support the populations they serve, they might attempt to use them to feed their grandiosity.

ENFJs are natural born influencers and ‘teachers’ that would demand that their ‘students’ worship them. As narcissists, they may become predatory and cross boundaries with those they’re ‘educating.’

ENFPs as narcissists would always be seeking validation and attention from others. These would probably be the more ‘vulnerable’ narcissists of the group, using their relationships with others to hide their core sense of shame.

ENTJs and ESTJs are known for their bluntness, business acumen and ability to lead. As narcissists, however, their leadership would become a dictatorship. They would micromanage people and overpower them – not for the purpose of organizational efficiency, but for the purpose of feeling superior.

ENTPs and ESTPs are natural-born devil’s advocates, so as narcissists, this trait would be exaggerated in their ability to provoke and demean others. They would argue in favor of horrific crimes or blatant inequalities just to get a rise out of the people they’re debating with. They would be hypercritical and abrasive, as well as emotionally abusive. Their cruel bluntness would be disguised as, “That’s just the way I am.”

ESFJas narcissists would create enmeshed relationships and have no problem violating the boundaries of others. As healthy individuals, they are empathic and giving. But as narcissists, they would ‘give’ only to get back. They may give the bare minimum to people and demand the maximum in return.

ESFPs are socialites who tend to be the life of the party. As narcissists, they would create harems of adoring fans that cater to their every need and ‘get off’ on all of the attention they’re receiving. They love to be the center of attention and would be perpetual spotlight-hoggers. They are also very into aesthetics, so they may present as a more ‘somatic’ narcissist – someone overly obsessed with their looks and appearance.

ISTJs as narcissists would stonewall their partners, shutting down arguments even before they’ve had a chance to begin. They would be extremely traditional in the way they view things and use moralistic thinking to control others, all while engaging in hypocritical behavior behind closed doors. In the realm of work, they would gravitate towards careers in power – such as that of law enforcement – just to abuse their power and get away with it.

ISFPs and ISTPs are gentle as non-narcissists, but as narcissists would present as pessimistic misanthropes. They would be the ones constantly griping about how unfair the world is, how they’re always the victim and how they never get their fair share. They would work to underhandedly sabotage anyone who has what they covet.

ISFJs are generous to a fault as non-narcissists. However, as narcissists, they would present as the quintessential covert, shy and introverted helper with a hidden entitled streak. Although they will appear humble at the onset, make no mistake, they will be taking note of everything they do for you and any time they feel they’re not getting the attention or appreciation they deserve. They will lash out in a terrifying display of narcissistic rage if they don’t get what they want.

Oliver Stone’s Putin Interviews

Oliver Stone’s Putin Interviews gives you a more objective assessment of Vladimir Putin, than you will get from mainstream Western news. I no longer support Donald Trump because he has turned into a war hawk for Loree McBride’s Deep State. Loree is still mad at Trump because he won’t worship her, but she is probably less mad at him now that Putin has withdrawn from the INF Treaty. Nevertheless, I support Putin over Trump any day.

Franz Wilhelm Character’s SOUL Playlist

This is Brianna Wilhelm’s dad, who starts off as a New Ager in Silver Skies, but becomes a Christian. His wife, Brianna’s mother, divorces him believing him unfaithful to her. This is a very protective character. He has secret King David genes, which he passes onto Brianna. He is very ashamed of his German background deep inside. I will listen to this music to get in my zone for writing this POV character in Silver Skies.
