Capabilities

Users have an instinctual insight in regards social cues, i.e., group mind, teamwork, sales pitch, understanding/inner knowing of individual characteristics and interests. Being able to act on using such forethought and taking the initiative in getting them to work together, a user can accomplish the impossible and cobble together a selection whom are prone to conflict & infighting yet have them function like a well-oiled machine.

Taking and changing societal as well as cultural views by unifying vastly differing personas in order to bring about something spectacular through their union.

Such a feature can be geared towards binding and tithing, or destabilizing and unmaking those same special bonds that enable such opposing opinions to properly unify under one goal in the first place. With such an immediate grasp of communal questioning stemming to ethics, desires, quirks, proclivities, etc. They can act upon and utilize such in-depth understanding of both the singular (individual) as well as the whole (collective) to initiate the most impressive united front any setting has ever seen.

With such an impressive comprehension of mob rule, wielders can easily coax a large cloister of people into acting upon whatever it is they wish. Even going so far as to bring in scores of secular hearts and minds over to their side of thinking; they can just as easily sow discord amongst disparate clicks or gangs, however, in order to affect widespread chaos in a greater society for the sake of reaping the rewards of effective misdirection. Resulting on inciting tremendous amounts of unrest by exploiting all the worst qualities users can find in others, mainly underlying conceits, insecurities or petty grudges the mob may possess towards others within the pack as much at themselves.

Individuals have a natural keen for leadership (as much as anarchy) for they can just as easily facilitate true interconnection between even with the most boisterous of sects and the sum of their parts. Practically utilizing their adverse ideals and goals in order to bring them closer together, putting a sort of distaff fusionism that makes them more successful in a team because of it.
