Functional Order: Se-Ti-Fe-Ni
Jackson doesn’t always think before he acts; when he sees something different about Scott that allows him to excel at lacrosse, he wants in on it and assumes it is drugs. Once that doesn’t pan out, Jackson finds out about werewolves, and insists Scott introduce him to the alpha and get him a bite. He rushes into the transformation, which turns him into another creature entirely. Unsure of what is happening to him, he sets up a video camera in his room to capture any strange behaviors at night. He is competitive and hard-working, but also opportunistic. He sizes up the situation between Allison and Scott and figures out how he can use blackmail to get what he wants. He immediately picks up on Allison and Scott’s dynamic and figures out how to twist it to his advantage. His thinking is creative, and willing to accept things outside the realm of possibility, once he has proof, but he cares a great deal more about how he can benefit from it, than he does his own personal safety. Jackson exercises heavily, pushes his body to the limits, and hints that Lydia gives him quite the endurance test in the sack. He Jackson knows what he wants out of life and intends to get it, but is unmotivated to strive for those goals until the idea of becoming “super” appeals to him. Jackson is unconcerned with others’ feelings and quite mean to Lydia when he breaks up with her and demands the return of his key. Jackson is working to “earn approval” from people who do not exist; he is emotionally reactive and manipulative. Jackson knows how to be charming to get Allison to like him, and takes some small amount of pleasure in hurting or insulting Lydia. He becomes upset when Scott usurps his position as captain, and craves the accolades and praise that will come from being a champion. He doesn’t always fully consider the consequences of his decisions before he makes them. His instincts are good; he knows that something is different about Scott, and that it’s more than just a summer full of practicing.

Jackson is all about appearances – being the captain of the lacrosse team, dating the most beautiful and richest girl in school, being master of the lacrosse field, as an all-around superstar. He shows off his status with expensive cars and toys, in a desperate attempt to impress and elicit admiration and love from others. Jackson reacts with aggression and dominance when threatened, becoming upset when Scott’s new abilities steal the attention from him. He’s willing to cut corners and do dangerous things to get what he wants (like, becoming a werewolf). He can be apathetic and emotionally cut off under stress, unreachable until Lydia awakens him (3 moving to 9). His 4 wing makes him feel a sense of abandonment and isolation, longing for what he cannot have and feeling jealous of others’ success and acceptance from their family.
