MBTI Type: ISTP
Princess Anne is incredibly frank and opinionated; at one point, her father accuses her of speaking her mind too easily, and she retorts that she doesn’t know where she got that from (… him). When her family encourages her to be calm and rational about the intrusive questions they intend to ask her about her romantic affairs, Anne dryly intones, “Unlike my usual hysterics?” She refuses to get emotionally involved in her romantic attachments, seeing them as “fun indulgences” and having zero compulsions about breaking up with someone once she has lost interest in them, sexually. Anne warns her father that his desire to video-record them for a special is a “bad idea.” She shows very little Fe, beyond a general ability to be sociable when her family demands it, and a genuine interest in her eccentric grandmother. On occasion, she is warm and reassuring to her brother, Charles, who is much more easily hurt by his family’s emotional stinginess. Like her father, Anne has an adventurous and opportunistic streak. She has no interest in trying to salvage the family name by sitting through an interview with an offensive journalist, so she calculatingly thrusts her grandmother into his path on a hunch that the nun will “win him over” – and it works. She warns her father that attempting to present them in a humanized light to the public will backfire, and it does. Anne engages in a series of brief sexual affairs, admitting to her mother that they were just “all in good fun,” and she took none of them seriously. None of them last long and she soon abandons them, losing interest and moving on, and proceeding to treat them in hindsight as if they were ages ago rather than a short time.
Enneagram: 8w9 sp/so
Anne is far more independent, strong-willed, and caustic than her brother. She does not hold back her opinions from anyone, even when others may deem them offensive, and on occasion, can even tread a bit on her father’s feelings (which is hard to do). She sees no reason not to embrace life to the fullest or not to indulge herself, but has no interest in emotional entanglements; the minute a man falls for her, she halts the affair and moves on. Weaker creatures than herself, such as her brother and her grandmother, draw her protection and concern. She is very tender to the old woman, and takes a real interest in her, even when Philip discourages it. And she tells Charles to stand up for himself more and not allow others to “gain control over him.” Her 9 wing withdraws from other people, likes solitude, and doesn’t allow herself to be emotionally affected by most negative situations.
