It’s more about probability, e6 and e9 are universal concepts, but the tie in between image and Beta NF is extremely strong. how do I explain it……. ah here we go, somewhere along the way Beta NFs learn the very true lesson that how you are perceived will play a large part in how life pans out for you, and that learning to control this perception is incredibly powerful and useful. IEI strive to be masters of their image, now depending on various factors the quality of that control is highly variable.
I will put this in term of internet forum users; at the lower end we have those who make a large splash trying to force people into a certain perspective of them. They will start very dramatic threads promoting the things these forums tend to value; romance, being different, unique perspective. What those at the lower end don’t do well is subtlety; they will wander into threads and speak of current or past relationships, and infer how mind blowing and destined the relationship was. Or they will find ways to talk about how their job or whatever there doing in real life is amazingly special and important*.
At the other end of the spectrum you have the masters of image control it is both fascinating and terrifying to watch. They have realised that by carefully filtering the information people receive about them, they can very subtlety convince them of the image they want. The subtlety and planning is quite frankly astonishing; it’s kind of like someone made a Lego pyramid of the size of those at Giza and their revealing it to you piece by piece.
