Functional Order: Ne-Ti-Fe-Si

Alice’s head is full of nonsensical things – she would rather daydream than read a boring book with no pictures in it or listen to her lessons, which she finds dull. In a nutshell, “That’s it, Dinah. If I had a world of my own, everything would be nonsense. Nothing would be what it is, because everything would be what it isn’t. And contrariwise, what it is, it wouldn’t be. And what it wouldn’t be it would. You see? In my world, you wouldn’t say “meow”. You’d say, ‘Yes, Miss Alice.’ Oh, but you would. You’d be just like people, Dinah. And all the other animals too. Why, in my world… Cats and rabbits would reside in fancy little houses, and be dressed in shoes and hats and trousers. In a world of my own… All the flowers would have very extra special powers. They would sit and talk to me for hours when I’m lonely in a world of my own. There’d be new birds, lots of nice and friendly how-de-do birds. Everyone would have a dozen bluebirds within that world of my own. I could listen to a babbling brook and hear a song that I could understand. I keep wishing it could be that way because my world would be a Wonderland.” Alice banters with every creature she meets, winds up dueling with words with Cheshire Cat and even quibbling with the Red Queen at her own trial. But she has poor sensory awareness, constantly over-eating the cakes and mushrooms that make her larger or smaller, losing track of herself in the forest, forgetting what she is doing and where she is going, and bemoaning being lost and wishing to be home when in a bad situation. At one point, she complains that she is tired of things being nonsensical (“It would be so nice if something would make sense for a change”). She bandies about words and changes their meaning, she argues with the flowers about what she is, she grows more and more curious about the White Rabbit, where he is going, and what he is doing. Alice also has some ideas about the importance of being polite, well-mannered, and nice to other people. She talks through her feelings as they are happening, cries openly, becomes angry easily, and tells others off, but she can also flatter out of an attempt to protect herself.  

Enneagram: 7w6 so/sp

Alice has the attention span of a gnat. She is easily distracted in the environment, chasing after whatever catches her attention, rather than her constant focus on the White Rabbit – she, in a way, is a visual personification of being inside a 7’s head – constant fluctuations in attention, abandonment of one train of thought for another, chasing after whatever is whimsical, colorful, and entertaining, somewhat quarrelsome and bad-tempered. She has no interest in trying to learn or read anything hard – if there’s no pictures, why should she focus on it, when she can imagine better things inside her head and make up stuff? Her 6 wing, however, has no intention of getting her head chopped off, making her malleable in the court of the Red Queen (up to a point) but also somewhat aggressive in protecting herself, cautious about the woods at night, and prone to wanting to be around well-mannered people.
