10)  Often has an in-group. Is tempted to motivate others to do his work for him.

11)  Loves public speaking. Is annoyed when his audience does not pay attention.

The mature Exhorter learns to endure frustration instead of continually ‘moving on’. He leads by example rather than just telling others what to do. He gains the ability to finish a job and turn vision into reality. He goes beyond the loud and the abrasive and begins to appreciate subtlety.

Processing: The Exhorter ties together Mercy and Teacher. He has two modes of processing. In concrete mode, he holds on to some Teacher word or theory and uses this as a guide to move through Mercy experiences. In abstract mode, he focuses upon some Mercy situation and uses this as a guide to work with Teacher theories. Exhorter thought works with excitement. Unlike emotion, excitement finds both pain and pleasure equally attractive. In addition, excitement requires continual novelty, whereas emotion prefers to stick with what is deeply loved or stay away from what is deeply hated.

The Exhorter is not able to concentrate. He finds it difficult to multitask and can be easily distracted by extraneous information.

Awareness: The Exhorter is aware of both Teacher and Mercy memories, but he approaches them in a different way than Teacher and Mercy thought do.
