Functional Order: Te-Si-Ne-Fi
Judging Functional Axis:
Extroverted Thinking (Te) / Introverted Feeling (Fi)
Angelica has total self confidence in her being far more rational than most everyone else she knows, except for Hamilton. She sings about waiting for a “revelation,” not a revolution. She says she’s going to have a word with Mr. Jefferson about including women in any future statements he writes for humankind. And although drawn to Hamilton, she sizes him up, forms rational judgments about him, measures it against her family and financial expectations, and then walks away from him. He is poor and an immigrant. Her family expects and needs her to marry rich. So she keeps him in the family, talks to him with delight, writes him e-mails, and… rakes him over the coals when he cheats on her sister and humiliates her in public through defending himself. He expects sympathy from Angelica, and she doesn’t give it to him. Girl has standards to maintain, after all. And defending her slime-ball brother in law ain’t one of them. She values her sister enough to put her first in all things, and marries for financial gain and status.
Perceiving Functional Axis:
Introverted Sensing (Si) / Extroverted Intuition (Ne)
She understands how society and the world works, and her place in it – marrying up, allowing her sister to claim Hamilton even though Angelica loves the spark of his mind and his ambitions. She puts family first in all her decisions, and understands better than he does the value of keeping those you love close to you. But her tert Ne wants adventure, ideas, change, to see society move forward. It’s searching for a revelation, for new ideas and beliefs, after all. Her song in which she ‘rewinds’ time to imagine how it might have gone differently, had she chosen to pursue Hamilton, shows her briefly considering an alternative path than the one she chose. Though Hamilton refuses to come with them on vacation, she never suspects the real reason why, not assumes him to be having an affair until he reveals himself.
Enneagram: 1w2 social
Angelica goes against her own emotional desires (the pursuit of Alexander Hamilton) out of a sense of duty and obligation to her family — she leaves him for her sister to pursue and marries another man and lives abroad, because she must, as the oldest sister, find a way to support her family. She is opinionated and willing to air her complaints, often frustrated by others and their stupidity. When Hamilton has an affair, she shuns him and sides with her sister instead, and is incredulous he would ask for her sympathy, because he did a bad thing in betraying his wife. She wants to change, mold, and shape the world around her, but hides a lot of her deeper needs behind a veneer of happiness and sweetness (2).
