He operates both directly and through intermediaries. He knows how to manage people, imposing his will on weaker parties, or offering favorable conditions where possible. He is quite proud, but sensitive, although he tries to conceal this. Considering it a weakness, it is unthinkable for him. In anger, he is insensitive to other people’s shortcomings.

He is a natural leader, though failing to overcome obstacles lowers his vitality. Configured for achieving realistic targets, as flexible a tactician, he is able to adapt to the process. He never hesitates taking risks, weighing chances of success on the fly. He will not rest till his targets are reached.

He dislikes indecisive people who evade bold action. He rejects advice, preferring to make all decisions on his own. He can listen while conversing, but has to have the last word. Bureaucrats are intolerable to him. When under pressure, his resistance is even stronger.

Creative Subtype

Marshal — Attacker

The creative subtype is active and volatile, boldly attacking in combat situations. He has a desire for freedom to fight, passion, and victory. Instantly adapting to dynamic circumstances, he is always ready for action. He seeks recognition for his work and is proud of his successes and achievements.

He is perceptive, witty, and possesses a critical mind. He knows how to give a brief and succinct description of a person, and if necessary, how to entertain strangers. He actively promotes his interests and hectic endeavors. At the same time, he has a good sense of humor.

For objectionable people, he may create a hostile environment, but for loved ones, he tries to provide comfort and welfare, showing care and attention.

In personal relationships, he will have a hard time if forced to adjust to his partner. He is very uncompromising and independent. Self-reliance is of the utmost importance to him. His actions are often unpredictable and dependent on mood swings; it is best to vacate his personal space when he succumbs to rage and anger. His quests often exceed his available options. He responds to present situations promptly, though he is badly prepared for long-term projects and distant prospects.

With his willpower, he can suppress surging emotions, though he experiences some difficulties expressing shades of emotion. Monotony quickly tires him, which is why he likes playing psychological games with his partner.
