This type of person is a pure rationalist, feeling that logic is the correct way of thinking in all aspects of life. They cannot understand people who suggest unrealistic ideas, however beautiful those ideas might be, and they find it impossible not to correct people. They feel that to be correct is the most important thing in life, even in the tiny details of how people act (like cutting bread or other such tasks). Small details are very important to the Inspector and they are able to observe these and draw definite conclusions. They are good listeners and can understand the essence of a problem even from a small amount of information. They are stubborn, persistent and will not fall under somebody else’s influence.
Inspectors do not like to be the centre of attention and are sensitive and unobtrusive in conversation, demonstrating kindness and friendliness. They protect the feelings of other people and avoid confrontations. They value deep friendships rather than a large number of contacts, and do not favour work, which requires communication with a large number of people.
When in a group the Inspector takes care to work out the relationships within it, finding out who supports their views and who does not, and waiting for approval of their character first. Their face shows kind emotions in order to earn sympathy, and they hide their real attitude, expressing negative views only during an argument. Their judgement of other people’s feelings is based on external appearances, how a person looks and talks. They have a strong need to be loved, and can often mistake other feelings as being the love of a partner. However, they are aware of this, and as such are distrustful and suspicious of their own feelings.
They are also distrustful of those who compliment too frequently, especially when they do not feel that the compliment is deserved; compliments should be rare and genuine. They think about human relationships, feelings and emotions at great length and sometimes with great pain.
They hate people who brag about their abilities; feeling that this should not be a topic of conversation. They also dislike those who are different from the ‘norm’ and they have the same attitude to unusual theories. They are suspicious of new ideas that require fundamental changes in thinking or to a system. They also dislike it when people cannot understand their viewpoint, or even just if they do not agree
