Functional Order: Se-Fi-Te-Ni
Stacie is an opportunist who leaps at the chance to become a babysitter, in part because it can enable her to pay for all the fine things she wants. She can get lost in the moment and read too little into things, like when she develops a crush on a handsome lifeguard at the beach and sets out to make him pay attention to her. She neglects even her paid job to do this, and leaves Mary Anne to do all the work of watching the kids. Though anxious about making friends in a new school, Stacie is still eager to connect to others and willing to take risks to do so. Her self-contained emotions keep her separate from her friends on some level. Stacie does not want their judgment or rejection for her diabetes and so does not tell them the truth for awhile. She does not push her friends to open up, either, when they do not want to. Stacie keeps her opinions about them to herself, for the most part. She also throws away her responsibilities to chase a boy – even though “I felt guilty about leaving Mary Anne to do all the work I should have been doing.” Initially, she comes across as very Te – good at math, eager to keep the books, knowing how to set rates and market herself and the club on a competitive level that makes her clash a little with Kristy. She also over-estimates her ability to regulate her diabetes and instead makes a mess of it under pressure, since she tries to take on too much. Stacie winds up admitting that she needs support and not to try to do everything herself. She does not put much thought into her future beyond the present, except in dreaming of the luxuries she wants to have one day.

Her appearance is everything to her—so much so that when a video went around of her having a diabetic seizure at her old school, it so devastated her that her parents had to move her to Stonybrook to give her a new chance at life. Stacie is so nervous about this, she finds it hard to do things or make friends on her own, but she also has an easy grace, self-confidence, and assurance that she is worth knowing and admiring. She presents a polished appearance to others, and can get upset when it crumbles. Her 2 wing, as she admits, is a “people pleaser.” She will offer to do more than her share to earn friends. Stacie, in attempts to make a lifeguard love her, brings him gifts, replenishes his soda, and goes out of her way to assure him if he needs help, all he needs to do is call her.
