PerceiverThe Perceiver Person

Here is a brief summary of the Perceiver person. You can find more detailed information here. There is a lot more information about the typical Perceiver person on the previous version of the website.

I have also put together a list of traits comparing the Perceiver with the Server.

The Perceiver person:

1)      Is constantly reminded of related facts and what he thinks about those facts.

2)      Is naturally good with maps and three dimensional analysis.

3)      Tends to tell puns and other ‘one-liners’. Finds strange associations humorous.

4)      Finds it easy to learn and remember facts.

5)      Believes strongly in truth and justice. Attacks the problem, not the person.

6)      Has problems with anger, especially when faced with injustice.

7)      Can escape into alternate reality such as science fiction and computer games.

8)      Hates hypocrisy. Finds it easier to ‘curse the darkness’ than ‘light a candle’.

9)      Can have problems procrastinating.

10)  Finds it hard to concentrate. Must learn how to focus.

11)  Has a natural feeling for reasonableness. Is able to work with uncertain facts.

The mature Perceiver becomes less judgmental and more forgiving of human frailties. He gains control over his anger and learns patience. He uses truth as a bridge to connect one experience with another instead of as a wall to block off what is wrong.

Processing: The Perceiver combines associative, abstract, and confidence. He is continually being reminded of related facts, each with a label of certainty. These labels affect how the Perceiver responds to current facts. For instance, suppose that the Perceiver hears about cognitive styles for the first time. If it reminds him of horoscopes, and if he knows that horoscopes are false, then he will tend to label cognitive styles as false.

The Perceiver is not able to concentrate. His mind will wander continually unless subconscious processing decides to focus upon some area.

Awareness: There is an arrow running from Mercy to Perceiver. Thus, the Perceiver person is aware of Mercy thought. He wants to hold on to Perceiver truth and facts, but he is also aware of people and their status, and he feels bad when he violates Mercy sensitivities. He has more awareness than the Mercy person, but is less capable of original thought.
