Power & privilege: manipulate / mediate
This gang understand the 'rules' and know how to bend them to get their way. They reduce every human interaction to a trade, using their specific expertise to baffle. Often they believe they are essential 'mediators', no longer part of the group but warning the others about limitations, as self appointed 'advisors' for the status quo.
Disrupt: How do you negotiate?
Reframe: How can we conduct human exchanges equitably?
Peddler: I fix problems using short term projects, deploying the latest tech. I make it look easy and you can do it too. I pace, peddle and pressure as required.
Lawyer: I build trust, negotiating and tailoring agreements to suit everyone’s needs. I withhold, manipulate and exploit to protect my clients interest. You want me on your team.
Entrepreneur: I create opportunities, ensure return on investment for all parties and advance social enterprises. I exaggerate, defraud and abandon, to naturalise economic environments as ecologies - and fraud is only fraud when my exit strategies don’t work…
Mascot: I build brands and I promote authenticity, it's the best seller there is. It’s all in the packaging - I scam, push and dupe to get the message out there, as long as it is authentic.
Listener: I am professionally sorry, concerned with their safety and contain, commiserate and dampen their anger and pain, so we all can keep functioning in crisis.
