Function Order: Te-Si-Ne-Fi
Lucy was an A+ student who graduated from Harvard, and who decides to take a job with the company that she despises (and the man she hates) because he makes a rational proposal to her, about using their financial charitable resources to do “greater good” than her individual protests—she used to spend all her time doing pro bono work, laying down in front of graders attacking ancient movie theaters, and protesting tearing down local landmarks. She methodically dated people whose interests have ‘aligned’ with hers, but never fell in love with any of them. She places a lot of emphasis on what she is familiar with and the landmarks important to her as a New Yorker, but also has a terrific ability to recall detailed information on demand. She can name all the supreme court justices even with a slight concussion, and has no trouble keeping track of all of George’s details (in contrast to his haphazard approach). Lucy is a reliable employee who drops everything to run to her boss’ aid under the assumption that him calling her is an emergency, when it actually is just a “fashion crisis.” Under stress, Lucy tends to unleash her feelings, assume that she is unlovable, and wonder what is “wrong” with her inability to attach herself to or keep men. She isn’t fully aware of how jealous she is about George’s many girlfriends, and tries to impress him even when drunk. She feels passionately about a lot of things but doesn’t let them keep her from making rational decisions at work (she complains about the paper that cannot be recycled but still tells her boss which one works best for the company stationary). She is devoted to doing “good things,” and can at times be off-beat in her choice of what that is; she can’t imagine why she can’t get people to support her causes, and only two friends show up to her protests.

Lucy is all about doing “good” in the world and wants to make a difference for the better; she spends all her time working for good social causes, and says she doesn’t care much about money. She accepts her job because it allows her to use charitable funds to help out those in need. Even though she doesn’t feel like it at times, whenever she’s mad at George, she still shows up for work, pulls her weight, and makes sure he’s on time. She warns him not to speak inappropriately or make assumptions that would humiliate him, and covers up his messes. But it also hurts her when she isn’t needed or wanted or respected, and can become whiny and emotional and defensive under stress or after a romantic disappointment.
