Function Order: Ne-Ti-Fe-Si
Wolf is something of an opportunistic strategist, who looks for potential in situations—he decides at the spur of the moment to steal something at a gala, and comes up with a plan overnight (elsewhere, the Governor remarks that his plans are always shoddy and their disguises are weak, which offends him, but also shows a lack of consciousness around details). He “knows” Snake secretly wants to be a good guy, so he puts one ice pop in the freezer to tempt him and show Snake that he’s not as selfish and bad as he thinks he is (but doesn’t admit it until much later). He figures out when the bad guy reveals himself that this has been a giant scheme all along to get Wolf to help him steal something—starting with triggering his “tail wag” and winding up with a desire to blame them for his own crime. He is quite clever in how he comes up with his cons and unconcerned with who he hurts in the process. At first, he uses Fe simply to charm his way out of bad situations (assuming it’s his idea to convince a philanthropist idealist to give them a second chance, with the aim of “being good to continue to be bad later on”), sweet-talk the ladies, and get what he wants from other people—but over time, he starts to recognize the value in doing nice things for others, after he saves the old lady (it feels good to wag his tail!). The more he’s around people who assume the best of him, the more he wants to be good, as he mirrors their morals and tries to develop some of his own. He also shows Fe in how devoted he is to his friends and their group, and how he doesn’t want to admit to his true feelings and desire of goodness, for fear of rejection.

Wolf is a raging optimist who likes to see himself in a good light, and who spends all of his time trying to convince Snake to look on the bright side, enjoy birthdays, and be more of a contributor to the group’s general feelings of goodwill toward each other. He’s full of sunshine and re-framing, seeing himself as heroic and valuing being ‘bad’ as a positive trait, but the more he leans into goodness, the more it appeals to him and he wants to be “good.” He shows integration to 1, in deciding to take responsibility for all the stuff he stole and thinking he should do “time” for it, when he turns himself in to the cops at the end of the story. He is pretty unapologetic about his bad behavior at the start, showing an 8 wing tendency to value behaving badly, but also doesn’t want to seem weak by striving for goodness—at first.
