It’s hard for me to stick with one type for this character, because she’s inconsistently written – the “older” Charlotte in Bridgerton and in this series is an ETJ with inferior Fi problems (lack of sensitivity, awareness, or respect for her children’s emotional needs), but young Charlotte is highly impulsive, individualistic, and lacks the kinds of high Ni nuances that Lady Danbury comes so easily by – such as knowing how her behavior is going to impact “our side.” She often reacts from her emotions, ignoring protocol and thinking that how she feels determines reality – such as trying to run away from her own wedding (going over the garden wall), or assuming she can run off and live with Lady Danbury, or even feeling that Lady Danbury is her “friend” because they’ve spent a little time together. She often dumps everything on an impulse and shows up where she’s uninvited, such as bursting in on George and demanding to know why he isn’t attending to his duties as king/husband, or intervening and freeing him from the torture of his physician by firing him on the spot. She’s wild, passionate, impulsive, is emotional and sensitive to George’s feelings, easily able to console him… and develops into a Te user as she ages, becoming less sensitive, more blunt and lacking accommodation for others’ emotional positions (angrily pointing out the fact that despite having 12 children, all of them are dreadful at producing legitimate heirs since all they do is sire bastards with “whores”). In her older self, we only see tenderness with George, whom she has taken under her protective wing as an 8. But even her older self is not great at seeing the bigger picture; she is baffled when things do not work, and when the world doesn’t live up to her expectations, but has to come down hard on people to make things happen too late, rather than being strategic.

Enneagram: 8w9 so/sp

Charlotte has a tough-talking, no nonsense manner about her, which shows up in her early but firm defiance against her future mother-in-law – she temporarily decides to wear the ugly, boring wedding gown provided for her for diplomatic purposes, but ultimately decides to make a firm stand and wears her own gown. Her children in the “current” sections of the series complain that she was never truly a mother to them; at one point, the try to defy her demand that they get married and start providing the throne heirs by saying she overstepped her authority, and it’s up to the crown prince to tell them to get married. She looks mildly apologetic and then tells the crown prince, “Now, tell your brothers to get married,” and he does. She’s not aware of sensitivity most of the time, and is awkward with expressing her feelings—but her tenderness comes out with George, who is sweet, passive, and innocent. She can show him tenderness, because he is in no way a threat to her – but her younger shows direct, assertive tactics in dealing with problems, dismissing the doctor who abused him, and in insisting upon taking over all of his care herself. She tends to be accommodating with people up to a point.
