Lisa is a warm, accommodating and emotional woman, easily touched by others’ moods, such as when she looks out across the courtyard, witnesses Miss Lonelyheart’s sorrows, and feels sad for her plight. But she also knows her own mind, and stubbornly argues with Jeff in an attempt to change his. She cannot accept him for who he is, and is convinced she can get him to see the merits of the marriage she wants. She is honest, forthcoming, and direct in sharing her feelings of frustration with his chronic pessimism, his lack of a wish to get married, and his lack of faith in her ability to “adapt” to a new life. She takes offense at being told to shut up, but is also forgiving of him, and even in their argument, states that she’ll see him the next night. She also quickly adapts to him and sees them as a “we” (“we believe he has murdered his wife”), while making grand assumptions about women in general, implying that deep down, all women are the same and behave in the same manner (no woman leaves home without her jewelry or her perfume or her wedding ring). Though stubborn at first in insisting that the neighbor wasn’t murdered, she quickly adapts herself to Jeff’s perspective and becomes convinced alongside him that the woman has been murdered. Almost from the very beginning, Lisa has ideas for their future together; she doesn’t care what he does, provided she can be a part of it, but also intends to guide him in the direction she wants him to go. She suggests he give up his life of wandering through the wilderness to become a proper photographer with his own studio, and promises to hook him up with clients from her expensive socialite circles. She claims many times that her “women’s intuition” tells her things, and leaps to assumptions about what happened in the apartment, the motivations involved, where the body has been hidden, etc. She knows the detective who is convinced by the facts is a “fool,” but also focuses on the psychology of things often – that there must be something wrong with the pair of them, to be despondent to find out a woman was not murdered. Lisa is also impulsive and reckless, at first wanting to dig up the garden and then entering the murderer’s premises on a whim to steal his wife’s wedding ring and go through her possessions. When caught, she pretends to be a thief and then confesses to the crime to get arrested. She also uses Jeff’s confinement opportunistically to make a move on him, romantically speaking. Lisa’s inferior Ti at first scoffs at the idea of a murder across the way, but his hypothetical evidence convinces her, and she sets out to prove it. She is rational enough to get herself arrested, to save her life, but less so in considering the dangers involved in the risks she takes; and she’s unable to detach herself emotionally from Jeff in order to decide if he is worth her time and attention, even if it leads nowhere.

Enneagram: 2w3 sx/so

She spends all her free time lovingly caring for Jeff’s needs, and anticipating what he wants before he even wants it, in order to meet those needs… because she wants him to love her, and thinks the only way to get him to agree to marriage is to be a seductive housewife. Lisa feels angry when he doesn’t seem to appreciate these efforts, and responds to her by being short-tempered and quarrelsome. She knows what is best for him (to settle down and become a highly paid photographer) and is determined to have it. Her 3 wing is ambitious and career-focused; she knows who is who, what is what, and wears all the most expensive gowns. She buys the best dinners and has them deliver to his apartment. She prides herself on being beautiful and desirable. She focuses on being seductive and appealing to Jeff, with whom she has bonded; her soc loves other people and entertaining, but she always comes home to him at the end of the day.
