Info Regarding a Behavior's Goals:
I really like this method of questioning the student based on the visceral response  I'm experiencing from them. Am I feeling annoyed? If so, the student may be wanting attention. Beaten or intimidated? The power is the goal. Wronged or hurt? Perhaps the student is seeking revenge. Incapable of reaching the child in any way? Then helplessness could be the behavioral goal.

As an INFP, this makes total sense to me. What a great way to get to the bottom of a behavior:
