MBTI Type: ESFJ
Georgiana is all about emotional dynamics, and using them to get herself and her husband ahead – sometimes without being fully appreciative of her husband’s more tender, possessive feelings toward her. She easily flatters, placates, and tells Peter whatever he wants to hear, using her influence to ease out “bad ideas” (too much change) and reinstate herself as his official mistress. She soothes her husband, but also reminds him of the negative social implications of his complaints and decisions (if Peter dies, or if Peter ceases to want her as his mistress, then they will have no more “power” at court, lose their positions, and fall into the lower ranks again). She understands how to function within the social hierarchy of court – that being a mistress entitles one to certain higher positions, gifts, and luxuries than other people. That you should not grovel to certain nobility. She tells Catherine as much, that she should never grovel, but always seem above them. Georgia seems quite content with the usual method of doing things at court, and sees no reason to “shake it up” with new innovations – in fact, she dissuades Peter at times from improving court, because she has a sense of how quickly it can “get out of hand.” (The printing press introducing mockery of the royal family and of the church, and of herself, leading to eventual disrespect of all three, followed by anarchy.) She seems to have a good grasp of reality, but doesn’t over-think them much.

Georgiana is ambitious; she has become the emperor’s mistress and intends to remain in that position. She doesn’t like to see others grovel or to do it herself, and remains “above” them in their interactions. BUT, she is also willing and able to be whatever the emperor requires of her, at any given time – always the person he can turn to, when his “dismal wife” disappoints him. Charming and seductive, but also somewhat out of touch with her feelings and those of her husband, Georgiana makes tactical decisions much more than personal ones, and is baffled to think that her husband wishes it could just be “them two, alone” on their estate. She sees the implications of everything and tries to cater herself toward it.
