MBTI Type: ENTP
SPOILERS. Agnes is not who she pretends to be in the false reality, where she is the happy-go-lucky and helpful neighbor who talks too much and shares too much about her dislike of her husband. She’s actually Agatha, a witch who sensed an incredible amount of power, infiltrated Wanda’s constructed town, and has been watching her, trying to figure out how her magic works so that she can siphon it away and learn to control it. She’s allowed her intuition to reach assumptions, and then tests her theories by throwing things at Wanda—constantly manipulating behind the scenes as she… encourages the twins to grow, tests whether Wanda can bring dead things back to life, and even baits Vision to see if he will figure out what’s happening and test the barrier. In order to understand where Wanda obtained her powers (since she was not born with them), Agnes walks her back through her most painful, traumatic memories in order to gain understanding—showing very little compassion in the process. She can be tert-Fe manipulative, in how she tries to convince Wanda to give up her powers in exchange for having the problems in her fake world resolved, and in how she deliberately targets her children in order to provoke her into action. She also has some inferior Si suppositions going on, about how people are all the same, how witches are all the same, and how her own traumatic experience at being tied to a stake and drained of magic has made her cynical. She says Wanda has great talent, but not enough ‘learning,’ inferring that she doesn’t pay attention to the details—but then neither does Agnes. Her obliviousness to what Wanda is planning for her allows her to be deprived of magic and forced to live in her ‘false life.’ She also calls her life in the suburbs, stuck there without magic, ‘cruel,’ because it will provide her no stimulation of any kind.

Agnes really plays up her 7 wing while ‘playing her part,’ in her bubbly, silly cheerfulness that also has a biting undercurrent of sarcastic humor and meanness to it. But once she stops pretending, she is all about power—seeking it, using it against her enemies, and taking it away from Wanda. She enjoys exploiting the situation to her advantage, putting Wanda in tough memories to try and figure out what drives her, and loves the fact that the witches in the past all turn against Wanda as a ‘threat’ rather than supporting her. She isn’t afraid to push Wanda in every way she can think of, in order to get her to expose herself and the truth about where her powers come from. Agnes learned she has to protect herself, when the witches turned on her—and she instead siphoned their lives away.
