Functional Order: Se-Ti-Fe-Ni
Perceiving Functional Axis:
Extroverted Sensing (Se) / Introverted Intuition (Ni)
Peter is the embodiment of “live in the moment.” All he cares about is sleeping around, eating all the time, drinking excessively, and doing pleasurable sensory things. It takes his wife’s careful manipulations to get him to care about such things as conversations, art, culture, or books – he would rather burn down the library (to stop women from learning things) than crack open a book. If he gets bored, he will shoot things right in the middle of the festivities. He is not above physical aggression, either. It’s only after a near death experience that Peter starts to care about the future of Russia and a possible “legacy.”
Judging Functional Axis:
Introverted Thinking (Ti) / Extroverted Feeling (Fe)
He doesn’t see the point in feelings – either people having them, using them, or thinking much about them. It takes analytical reasoning to figure out why his wife might dislike him at the moment (because he punched her in the stomach the last time he saw her), and he clumsily sort-of apologizes for it (more like says he won’t do it again, and buys her another bear to love). He is clueless as to why his best friend would care about him “banging my wife.” Peter puts far more effort into his tert-Fe craving for constant affirmation, approval, and acceptance. He has a pathological need for everyone present to laugh uproariously over his stupid jokes, insults, profanities, and crass comments.
Enneagram: 7w8 self-preservation
Peter’s entire life is centered around… pleasure. Constant distraction, good times, wine, women, and song. If he is not having a good time, then he is bored, and if he gets bored, he makes other people suffer for it. He is shallow and does not want to think about unpleasant things, but also willing to do unpleasant things “for the greater good” – such as burn anyone to death who has the pox, huzzah. Unfortunately for other people, his idea of fun can mean gouging out the eyes of dead soldiers and dining with their severed heads on the table. When his wife refuses to “have fun,” Peter punches her in the stomach and plots her death, because he refuses to have a sourpuss around him. He does very little ruling and a lot of negating his personal responsibilities to his archbishop.
