According to the Books of Kings in the Hebrew Bible, Jezebel incited her husband King Ahab to abandon the worship of Yahweh and encourage worship of the deities Baal and Asherah instead. Jezebel persecuted the prophets of Yahweh, and fabricated evidence of blasphemy against an innocent landowner who refused to sell his property to King Ahab, causing the landowner to be put to death. For these transgressions against the God and people of Israel, Jezebel met a gruesome death—thrown out of a window by members of her own court retinue, and the flesh of her corpse eaten by stray dogs.
Refuses to admit guilt or wrong
Takes credit for everything
Uses people to accomplish its agenda
Pippin (1995:221) writes that Southern women in the United States of America define Jezebel as a cheap harlot, scheming, promiscuous, a female gigolo, a biblical queen, evil and treacherous, wicked, wild, uninhibited, cute, happy, slinky, powerful, calculating, ambitious, ruthless and self-centred, and so the list continues. Hence Ferris Beach (2005:x) can introduce her book on the fictitious correspondence of Jezebel by asking the question, ‘Was Jezebel ... really a slut?’ Pippin (1995:222) states that the ambiguous and complex character of Jezebel in the Bible serves as an archetypal bitch-witch-queen in misogynist representations of women.
This article indicated that reference to a Jezebel spirit in the modern church is based on a misreading of the biblical narratives in the books of Kings as well as a misunderstanding of the notion of characterisation in narratives. Recent developments in hermeneutical methods that draw attention to these matters should be taken seriously by preachers of the Word in the church as well as by institutions preparing men and women for the ministry

The video early on says that the Jezebel spirit can be expressed by men, but that it's overwhelmingly a female personality type.
After that it's mostly a Christian misogynist's wet dream.
