Paid Request: Hidalgo: Jazira [ISTP 6w7]

Function Order: Ti-Se-Ni-Fe

Jazira doesn’t have a lot of screen time, but proves practical when she does show up; she helps out Frank with Hidalgo. Since she can’t ride the race, she prepares him for what he will encounter by providing him with supplies and advice, even though he’s racing against her father’s horse (and her favorite mount, the one she wishes she was riding). She tells him to see the locust as a gift, not a pestilence (which allows him to think of them as food), and gives him butter to mix with the water, to provide both him and Hidalgo nourishing fat along the way. Though she abides by the laws of her people for the most part (being quiet, playing her role, keeping her face covered), she also rebels and questions her father’s decisions (she thinks him a hypocrite, for pretending to care so much about tradition, but allowing her the freedom to ride astride and do many other boyish things). She wishes she could run in the race, and tries to convince him to change his mind, as well as not marry her off to the man running against his horse. She also thinks the American Indians are like her people, those without a permanent homes who wander from one place to the next. She wishes they could break away from tradition so that she could be her own person, but also abides within the standards of her culture. She thinks fast on her feet and moves against her uncle, who has kidnapped her; she risks her life to go back for her father’s breeding book, so that he will get away with nothing. Jazira wants to be part of something, to be seen for who she is, to be able to be free to be true to herself, but knows that isn’t possible, so she puts it aside (low Fe, being accommodating and fitting into the environment).

Enneagram: 6w7 so/sp

Jazira both moves toward other people, and appears to root for the underdog; when others scorn Frank and Hidalgo, she starts to root for them, seeing them as courageous and spirited. She goes out of her way to help them win, also for her own benefit (if they win, and her fiancé loses, her father won’t marry her off to him). She cares about their welfare and wants to see them survive. Jazira can be both rebellious and confrontational, reacting against her father and the other men in the family (sometimes putting herself at risk in the process), and going along with their plans for her life, since she knows there’s nothing she can do. She is loyal to her father, and to his bloodline of horses, even if she doesn’t agree with all of his decisions. But a large part of her also craves adventure and freedom from all limitations; she doesn’t want to get stuck being married to a man with four other wives, because that will prevent her from doing what she loves most—riding horses.

Paid Request: Song of the Sea: Ben [ISFP 6w7]

Function Order: Fi-Se-Ni-Te

Ben is somewhat self-absorbed and only concerned with his feelings in the early portion of the story, seeing his sister as a pest who steals the beautiful shell his mother gave her. He is so vexed with her, and caught up in his own feelings, that he pushes her into her own birthday cake, ruining Granny’s photo and resulting in him being sent to his room, then tells her a scary story just to upset her (and feels bad about it when she gets scared, and reassures her it’s just a story, not real… but that doesn’t help). Ben angrily blames her misadventures for getting sent to Dublin to live with their grandmother, whose house he hates, so he decides to run away back home to find their dog—and drags his sister along when she refuses to let him go alone. Once he discovers she is a seilkie from the sea, he then sets out to protect her, find her seal coat, and help her free the fairies from being turned to stone, since only her song can restore the balance. His feelings toward her begin to change, as he matures into a more thoughtful, compassionate boy—carrying her through thorny branches and through rainstorms, even jumping into the water in an attempt to save her and recover her coat, though the sea terrifies him. He adapts quickly to his environment, whether that is to get news from a faerie king or to outrun an old witch. He notices all the jars full of emotions and memories in her attic, and convinces Saoirse to blow the shell, breaking them all free and restoring the witch’s feelings to her. Ben is also an artist who likes to illustrate his mother’s stories. He is quite industrious and purposeful when he puts his mind to it, coming up with a map home, asking for directions, taking a bus and paying for their tickets, and seeing to it his sister gets home. He can be blunt at times and even cruel, telling his sister to get lost, and saying if their father turned to stone in his grief, “nobody would love you.”

Enneagram: 6w7

Ben has a lot of fears tied to his own survival, but he is also loyal to his family when it counts. He’s scared of the sea, so much so that he won’t go into it at first to bring back his sister, who has wandered off looking for seals. He must work up the courage to dive in after her, when she vanishes into a pool within a cave, and again when he dives into the sea to swim down and find her coat to deliver it back to her. He wants her to be safe, and doesn’t want to lose her, asking their mother in tears to let her stay and admitting to himself that he loves Saoirse—quite a different reaction from his initial feelings toward her. Though cautious and deliberate, Ben does tend to go off on a whim—he sets out for home with only a map and sheer determination to get there, he embraces adventure when he must, and eventually conquers his fears by thinking positively and taking a leap of faith.

You’ve Got Mail: Frank Navasky [INFP 6w5]

Function Order: Fi-Ne-Si-Te

Frank is “that nut from the Observer,” who likes to rail against the machine and write what personally appeals to him – in such abstract terms that Patricia admits she doesn’t know what he’s talking about at all, really. He chooses highly abstract topics for all of his articles, and has devoted himself to his career as a editorialist. Frank has strong opinions, but also a level of self-absorption; when he finds Kathleen confronting Joe Fox at a dinner party, he asks him how he feels about being a “city-destroyer” (anti-capitalism stance) and how he sleeps at night, but then immediately becomes excited to find out Patricia thinks he’s a genius. He turns the conversation around on himself, how he writes all this stuff, and nobody responds to it, and he assumes then that no one cares, oblivious to how upset Kathleen is in the background. He is also somewhat unaware of other people and their signals – such as when he reassures Kathleen that a woman coming on to him on television is nothing, but later finds out he’s drawn to her, and needs to be in a relationship with her. Frank is forever drawing parallels between her situation and other, random things – calling her a “lone reed waving in the corrupt sands of commerce,” and mobilizing people to her cause by writing a rant against capitalism. But he also shows a lot of tert-Si – he hates anything new, he thinks computers are going to turn against them, and he prefers his typewriters so much that he has three of them. He can be quite blunt and confrontational at times, by asserting his true feelings, although he doesn’t want to hurt Kathleen. He has a list of traits for people that he “can’t be with” because it would violate his beliefs.

Enneagram: 6w5 so/sp

Frank has a reputation for being peculiar and eccentric; he is anti-modernist and goes against the popular culture, writing an entire column about how much he loves his typewriter and won’t move forward. He has strong political views (but finds it amusing that he seems capable of dating someone despite them – “I can’t help myself”) that he wants others to share. His line to 3 comes out whenever he finds anyone who approves of his stuff or flatters him – he’s desperate to have someone listen to him, talk to him about what he writes, and find him intelligent. He prefers to minimize his lifestyle rather than expand it (leaning into the technology he has, rather than what’s possible) and is suspicious of the motivations of big business.

Don’t Look Up: Kate Dibiasky [ISFP cp6w5]

Function Order: Fi-Se-Ni-Te

Kate makes all her decisions based on what she believes is right – unlike those around her, she doesn’t believe it’s right to keep people in the dark about the impending doom that awaits them in a few months. She often says exactly what she thinks, even if it’s “inappropriate” to the situation – such as when the president prioritizes the comet after ignoring it for weeks and calling them crackpots; as Kate says, “Oh, so now you’re facing a sex scandal that could tank your reelection efforts, so the comet is important.” She also tells her to her face that she did not vote for her, and doesn’t like her, but that she will work with her, for the common good, because she has to. After being silenced and working at a convenience store, she tells guys who get caught shoplifting booze to go ahead and walk out the door; she doesn’t care, it’s not her business, and they’re all gonna be dead in a few months anyway. When people ask her what’s “really happening” in a restaurant, she tells them point-blank that they’re all going to die, and the government is ineptly handling this, because “they deserve to know the truth.” She becomes defensive when others criticize her work, or question where she got her degree. Kate is also fully based in the present moment; she bluntly states the facts at times (“My head is in a bag!”) and pays attention to her immediate needs (“What if I need to pee?”). Her immediate solution to finding out they’re all going to die is to track it in her diet app (“I’m not on a diet, but at least I know when I’m going to die”), to pop Xanex like it’s going out of fashion, to drink, hang out with “losers” and fool around with a boy, because “what the hell, we’re going to all die anyway.” She often does things without thinking them through, such as asserting the truth despite being told to keep her mouth shut, winding up hauled off by the FBI, and having to sign a nondisclosure form. Under stress, she becomes fixated on the impending apocalypse, certain that it’s going to happen, and over-focused on waiting for the end to come, rather than actively working on solutions. She just accepts the inevitably of it, but also gets stuck wondering why a five-star general made them pay for snacks, when snacks are free at the White House. Under stress, she screams at people, over-asserts herself, and is terribly blunt.

Enneagram: cp 6w5 sp/sx

Kate is a blend of passivity and aggression, swinging between abiding by what the authorities tell her to do and actively resisting them, accusing them of moronic behavior, of denial and refusing to accept the truth, and telling other people they should be terrified, because she is. She admits that she’s scared all the time – but she often does things that she regrets a moment later, such as screaming the truth in public and then being hauled off with a bag over her head to have a stern ‘talking to.’ She angrily tells them to take the bag off her head, but is freaked out when wondering what they mean by ‘silencing’ her. After signing a nondisclosure agreement, she passively submits to it, keeps her head down, and goes about her day, but then heads up a movement to warn people, tell them to prepare for their deaths, and ‘look up’! Her 5 wing is not a people-person; she’s somewhat caustic, private, and withdrawn. She hates being the center of attention and turning into an online meme, but later figures out that she can use that to her advantage.

Paid Request: Encanto: Bruno Madrigal [ISFJ 6w5] [and family]

Function Order: Si-Fe-Ti-Ne

Bruno does not have much screen time, but he is decidedly Si – when he receives his visions as a gift, he treats them as foreign and scary rather than a blessing, because they sometimes foretell bad things, and he doesn’t know how to interpret them (his inferior Ne, however, tries to keep an open mind – Mirabel might destroy their home, or she might save it; there are two ways to see this). Even when he ran away, he didn’t go far – he just ducked inside the walls and has lived with them, unseen and unnoticed, ever since, feeling and taking comfort in what is familiar to him. He finds it hard to leave his comfort zone, or step back into the real world – and is scared to have another vision, because the last one he had was so terrifying and unpleasant to him. Bruno also wavers between social ineptitude (he tried to tell his sisters about their futures, but wound up botching it and making them both upset at him, another reason for him to hide away from people) and desperately wanting to contribute in some meaningful way. He entertains himself (and his pet rats) by taking on different personas in hiding, pretending he has companions or is someone other than his true self, but is only truly happy when he’s able to emerge from hiding and explain himself in a way that others can understand, without upsetting them. He has thought a lot about the vision and reached a conclusion that it has more than one possible outcome; that not all his visions are ‘set’ but that their abstract nature means they are open to change and interpretation.

Enneagram: 6w5 sp/so

When Mirabel asks if Bruno has been trying to repair the cracks in the house, Bruno looks freaked out and says, “No, I stay away from them!” He is suspicious, paranoid, and reclusive, always muttering under his breath, throwing salt over his shoulder to ward off evil spirits, etc. He also was so fearful of the consequences of his vision, which implicated Mirabel in the possible destruction of their home and the magic, that he simply… disappeared rather than face everyone being upset with him. He’s afraid to come home, but was also afraid to leave; he feels somewhat misunderstood, because he can’t articulate his visions well, and struggled to tell his sister their true meaning (that one of them should feel whatever she wants to feel, and not change it to suit anyone else). He has lived quite happily as a recluse for over a decade, hidden in the walls of the house.

The Family

The rest of the family have such limited screen time, it’s hard to make an argument for most of them, but here are my thoughts.

Camilo: ESTP 7w6 so/sp

He mostly spends his time physically altering his looks to make other people laugh, and using his shape-shifting skills to his advantage (in order to ‘steal’ a few more treats from the kitchen, for example). He has an others-focus that indicates low Fe, and is playful and fun.

Isabela: ESFJ 3w2 so/sx

Her entire arc is about learning to go with what she feels, rather than catering to everyone else’s wishes, needs, and demands all the time; this is a struggle Fe-doms have against breaking free and being their own person, rather than assuming everyone else’s wishes must come first. It’s only when she learns to allow herself to be imperfect, and to create imperfect things, that she comes out of her shell and achieves the individualization she so craved; she was even willing to marry someone she didn’t like, just to please her family.

Dolores: ISFP 9w1 so/sp

She is cheerful but separate from her family, much quieter than most of them and not as inclined to share her feelings; she just accepted that she would be thwarted in love, but leaps at the chance to accept someone once it is offered to her. She listens to everything, and reacts to everything in the present moment, without thought for how it might ripple through the family (she overhears the prophecy and shares it immediately).

Luisa: ISFJ 2w3 so/sp

She feels that she must help everyone in practical ways all the time by using her strength to their advantage, while resenting the fact that she feels exhausted from carrying the weight of everyone else’s expectations on her shoulders; she doesn’t think she has the right to pull away from them and establish her own needs and wants.

Pepa: ESFP 4w3 so/sx

Whatever emotion she is having in the moment is completely dominating her life, and she often overreacts massively, sometimes seeing problems where none exist and struggling to maintain an optimistic attitude. She takes things rather literally, but is also fast to get things done, focus on what’s unfolding around her, and struggles to control her own feelings.

Antonio: ISFP 9w1 so/sp

Seems like a trope — since ISFPs are the ones most connected to nature and in understanding things deeply through Fi/Ni. He is eager to connect to nature and animals and his room is very physical. His aunt is ISFJ.

Paid Request: Blade Runner 2049: Luv [ISTJ cp6w5]

Functional Order: Si-Te-Fi-Ne

Luv is methodical in how she collects information, with the express purpose of destroying it, all out of an intense devotion to her master, the creator of the robots to whom we assume she thinks she owes her sentience. (Her motivations are unclear.) She does things systematically in a desire to protect the way things ‘are’ and have always ‘been’ in her world – a world in which robots are slaves, and serve mankind, but have been reprogrammed to have less of a mind of their own, and to stay close to their preconditioning. To cover up the birth of a special child, an impossible creation that has upset her master, since he cannot figure out how to help them procreate, she breaks into the government’s holding facility to steal the bones, kills the only witness to her crime, goes on to interrogate and then kill the general who is protecting K/Jo from her pursuit, and then chases him with the express intent to kill him, if she finds out he has been protecting this child. She is a loyal servant to the very end, before Jo kills her after attacking their ship. Luv does show occasional flashes of her own deeper emotions, such as her identification with the newborn who is gutted and left to die by her master, her own apparent misery at thinking about coming alone into the world, and in her anger toward her situation. But she shows no real thinking outside of the box, no belief that anything can change, and has no desire to be part of a revolution that could forever alter the world.

Enneagram: cp6w5 so/sp

Even though she could turn on her insane madman of a creator, Luv is unquestioningly loyal to him – to a fault. She will kill for him, she stands by and allows him to hurt a newborn robot even though it obviously distresses her to watch a fellow creation suffer, and she does all in her power to protect him and his cause, without questioning why she is doing any of it. She turns to aggression under pressure, and even slips into 3 mode in how assertive, confident, and proactively she takes control over situations; even in her assertion before her death that she is the ‘best’ of her kind. She can be detached, and callous, owing to her unhealthy 5 wing – she maims someone and leaves him gasping and choking on his own blood while she calmly resumes stealing bones and tucking them into her satchel.

Arthur Christmas: Arthur [6w7]

Function Order: Ne-Fi-Te-Si

Arthur is something of an odd duck at the North Pole, because he is full of wild enthusiasm, good cheer, and excitement for the holidays, but doesn’t know what to do with himself, and neither does anyone else. He is such an idealist, he fails to consider the actual circumstances around him, namely that Santa is not the glorified figure he imagined, but has lost some of the Christmas cheer and no longer cares that much if one child doesn’t get their gift. Arthur sees the bigger picture, in that this lost gift is going to change the mindset of the child who doesn’t receive it, not only making them disappointed but also causing them to lose their faith in Santa and assume that no one cares about them. He often wildly over-estimates what they are capable of doing, such as insisting he is going to deliver it to her himself, even though he has only 38 minutes before sunrise. Arthur is highly emotional, and he continues to worry and fret about this girl not receiving her gift, even when others tell him to stop thinking about it. It distresses him so much that she would feel unloved, he sets out to do right by her, inspiring others to join him in his cause along the way. Arthur also has trouble when he gets disillusioned in not shutting other people out; he stomps off, insisting he’s done at one point. Arthur takes special care with each letter he answers to make it special and cater it to the child, imbibing with the hope he finds most important. He is good at organizing others and himself to reach short-term goals, and often shouts out obvious facts under stress (that the reindeer isn’t real, that they are in Canada, that they mistook the address). Arthur is poor with details, which gets him into trouble both on their journey and at the North Pole – he accidentally burned down an elf house, he picks the wrong destination on the sleigh because he rushed and didn’t double check the address, etc. He’s sentimental about Christmas and needing it to be a certain way.

Enneagram: 6w7 so/sp

Arthur claims at one point that they have to let him worry, since that’s the “only thing I’m good at!” He is full of self-doubt, never assuming he can do things on his own and just following his grandfather around, until he finally gets angry enough to undertake delivering the bike himself. He frets about whether they are being safe, whether they can get there on time, and never tries to put himself forward for promotions at work. He assumes his brother is going to be Santa, not that he could do it, or has the heart for it. He hates any kind of conflict, and tries to be supportive of whomever happens to be running the sleigh. But he also has a crazy, optimistic, and good-natured side. Arthur wants Christmas to be special, magical, and important to every child. He thinks it’s terrible that one child wouldn’t receive a gift, because he can’t imagine devastating anyone like that – they need to be happy! He just wants to spread joy and happiness to them! He also opens himself up to going on adventures, taking risks, and becomes more self-confident as the story goes along.

Oscar and Lucinda: Lucinda Leplastrier [ESFP 6w7]

Function Order: Se-Fi-Te-Ni

Even in childhood, Lucinda is highly active and industrious, choosing to swim and climb trees rather than hang around the house. She does not want to explode her Prince Rupert’s drop, a piece of glass, because then it will be gone and she can no longer marvel at its beauty. She nurses this love of glass into her adulthood, when she impulsively decides to purchase a glass works company, without knowing anything about how to run that business. She then seeks out people who can help her, and falls into addictive gambling behaviors. Lucinda cannot stand being alone on the boat, so she goes in search of someone to spend time with her and winds up pretending to need confession just to talk to Oscar. They then happily play cards together. She sets up a card game to ‘trap the stewards’ into gambling, and admits she went on a train for the express purpose of playing dice. Lucinda often stays out all night socializing. Left together at the house after her maid leaves, because she considers Oscar being there scandalous, Lucinda challenges him to floor-cleaning contests. She at first thinks his idea about a glass church is ‘impractical,’ but then gambles her entire inheritance on whether he can do it. Lucinda, the narrator admits, lives so much in the moment, she doesn’t think about how her habit is destroying the foundation of her wealth ‘brick by brick.’ She is quite assertive to other people when she feels threatened, refusing to leave home, wearing pants underneath her skirts (and shorter skirts) despite the Sydney fashions of the time period, purchasing a glass works company as a working woman, and intending to run it herself. Lucinda doesn’t like to talk about her feelings, and will simply flee the situation to avoid being direct about them; she doesn’t want to sacrifice who she is to please other people, and objects to them doing that themselves (she doesn’t like the idea of her minister friend preaching anything he doesn’t believe is true). Lucinda doesn’t seem to mind that everyone thinks she’s in a sinful relationship; she knows she isn’t, so she doesn’t want their approval. When she embraces the idea of the church, others call her ‘impractical’ and point out the logistics of it being bad (it will be hot as hell; she retorts that they will build it beneath a nice, cool tree).

Enneagram: 6w7 sp/so

Lucinda admires Oscar, because he is willing to do things despite his fears. She can be impulsive, but also admits she feels ‘scared’ about her commitments. She doesn’t like people to disapprove of her, and tries to either win over their approval through being charming and sweet, or asserts herself against them, or chooses to avoid the situation altogether. Lucinda is easily flustered and intimidated by people, and also seeks out those who can counsel or help her in her business. She places a great deal of faith in her reverend friend, and trusts him to help her figure out how to run her new business. It upsets her when he must leave on her account, because of the scandals surrounding her. Lucinda says she wishes she could assume that ‘people are just good, simple chaps’ instead of being critical and judgmental of them. Her 7 wing is playful but also avoidant. She runs away from confrontation and any discussion of her irresponsible behaviors, choosing to scurry away from her minister friend rather than face his serious questions about her gambling addiction and inappropriate behavior. She questions and challenges his willingness to leave for the outback, accusing him of blindly going along with something he does not believe. Lucinda has a playful, childish side to her nature and seeks stimulation wherever she can find it.

Paid Request: Single All the Way: Peter [ESFP 6w7]

Function Order: Se-Fi-Te-Ni

Peter could not wait to get out of New Hampshire and move to LA, where he could live the high life, doing a job… it turns out, he doesn’t really love, but that allows him to participate in the “night life” he so wanted. He admits that as soon as he got there, he joined a gym to meet people. As a social media influencer who connects advertisers to models and ad campaigns, he actively promotes himself and his products online, oversees photo shoots, and does things at the last minute. He convinces his best friend to buy a plane ticket and fly out with him to meet his family, on the pretense of them dating. Peter does a full day of work, then wants to socialize at a party—or return home and hang out with his family. When an ad campaign gets rejected at the last minute, he uses the people around him to create a new one. But he also admits he has a bad problem of misjudging people, picking the wrong person, and not being in a solid relationship for more than two months at a time. He gets so caught up in the moment, he’s not always aware of how he is coming across, or the people around him. Peter cares a lot about what his family thinks and wanting to please them (by pretending to be dating someone he isn’t), but also tends to be oblivious to his true feelings. He goes on and on about Nick while on a date with another guy, not realizing that he’s talking incessantly about the person who means the most to him. It takes him a long time to realize his own feelings for Nick, after denying them for forever, and then he’s afraid that he will lose Nick as “my best friend” by becoming romantically involved with him. Peter wants obvious solutions to his problems, and doesn’t question himself or his own motivations, so much as he over thinks the ramifications of everything, and assumes it might go wrong. Peter has a vague idea of what he wants for his future (to raise plants and have a nursery for them in his hometown), but he doesn’t realize what he truly wants until he’s in his home environment; being there, being present, makes him acknowledge his dream needs to become a reality, here and now.

Enneagram: 6w7 so/sp

Peter is anxious much of the time, about keeping his family happy, or not being seen as a loser or someone who can’t keep a relationship going. He doesn’t want to go on a blind date at first, but then goes along with it to keep his mother happy. He’s willing to lie about Nick being “just a friend” to keep others happy, and works through the holiday because his boss tells him to. He is a blend of comedic timing and reactive emotions, as he anticipates the negative fallout of his actions. He assumes his track record of choosing unavailable men will mean he can’t find someone who is perfect for him. He also doesn’t want to go after Nick, out of a fear that their romantic attachment might “ruin our friendship” (rather than seeing it as a bonus). His 7 wing loves to have a good time,, makes light of intense situations, and is somewhat bold in asserting his own needs. Peter runs out and brings home a real Christmas tree to replace his mother’s artificial white one, because it doesn’t seem real enough to him, regardless of how she might feel about it.

Paid Request: Ratatouille: Alfredo Linguini [INFP 6w7]

Function Order: Fi-Ne-Si-Te

Linguini has a good heart, even if he is something of a klutz – when his boss tells him to kill a rat, he thinks about throwing it in the Seine in a jar to drown, but cannot find it within himself to murder an innocent creature. He believes this is a talented rat, who has cooked something in front of his very eyes and gotten it right, and that they can work together to get him out of the scrape he is in, because he really can’t afford to get fired again. Linguini believes they can pull it off, without considering the logistics of it, that they could get discovered and shut down by the health inspector, or even considering his inability to talk to Remy as a barrier between them. He just assumes they can figure out some way to cook together. He falls in love with Collette the minute he lays on her. Linguini is also reactive in the moment; after he spills the soup, he dumps water in it, then throws in a bunch of spices without knowing anything about cooking, portions, or measurements, or thinking that he might ruin it, upset a paying customer, or knock off one of their “five star” ratings. Linguini is scatterbrained, unfocused, and always in trouble in the kitchen for banging into things. He reacts on an emotional level separate from how others see him, but is also apologetic when he screws anything up or ‘looks like an idiot.’ He will randomly burst out with a comment, a joke, or an offhanded remark, then try to cover up his faux pas with goofy behavior (or a kiss, in one instance). Linguini admits that he is not creative when it comes to cooking, and he would have just followed the recipe as it was written down, without improvising himself. He can be somewhat blunt under pressure – kicking Remy out of his kitchen after a fight, ordering all of them away when he finds them stealing from the pantry, and telling Ego to his face that he’s pretty skinny to be a food critic. Linguini doesn’t question things much, like how a rat could possibly be such a good cook, he just wants to use them to get things done. He admits that he doesn’t have a good working track record, and has gotten fired from a bunch of different jobs due to his own ineptitude.

Enneagram: 6w7 sp/so

Linguini is a likable guy who just doesn’t want to get fired, or have people get mad at him, and so goes out of his way to make sure he can keep his job, by pretending to be something he isn’t (a chef). He is also quite honest, however, in that he tells people that this is only the fourth time he has cooked a meal. He is constantly freaking about, fearful of being discovered, worried about someone finding out about Remy, and suspicious of his motivations and behaviors – after saving Remy and bringing him home, he wakes up the next morning, assumes he has gone, and says that’s what he gets for trusting a rat! (He then falls silent to notice Remy has made them both a delicious breakfast.) He has a lot of manic energy, uses humor to try and diffuse tense situations, and likes to keep things light at work as much as he can.

Angel: Winifred Burkle [ENTP 6w5]

Function Order: Ne-Ti-Fe-Si

Fred was studying advanced science, mathematics, and astrophysicist material before she got sucked into another dimension and lived there as a slave. Once she returns to earth and integrates into the group, she immediately shows an ability to sense things about all of them, and put it into abstract terms (she points out that Angel is the Warrior, Cordelia is the Heart, Wesley is Knowledge, and Gunn is Strength, but she isn’t sure where she fits in). Her train of thought is sporadic and wanders around a lot; she will be talking about her date with Angel one minute, and making a remark on the movie they saw the next, without anyone knowing she has changed subjects. She often makes totally random observations that catch the others off guard, and confesses that she has spent time pondering fully abstract conceptual problems in order to solve them – like how could you kill a monster with your arms cut off (she adds that of course you would bleed out in a matter of minutes, when others give her horrified looks, misinterpreting their shock to be stating the obvious logical repercussions of bodily limb loss). Fred is quick to find connections between things, has flashes of insight, and comes to conclusions faster than any of her friends (she looks at the crystals on her blouse, and instantly knows the alien creature they killed has a spouse that will return to kill them). She covers the walls of her room with mathematical equations, along with the cave where Angel originally finds her – she was trying to figure out an algorithm to conjure up a wormhole to return to her own dimension. She tinkers with and invents things in her spare time, improving their weaponry and taking a genuine interest in Wolfram & Hart’s science department. She doesn’t really need to pay much attention to what she’s doing to get it right and quickly notices discrepancies. When Angel asks Fred how she is feeling, she has eight different words to express her emotions. She frequently talks about her feelings – her insecurities, her sadness, her happiness, and her budding affection for her “boys.” Fred really does care about her friends and feels drawn to protecting them, but also worries that she might let them down, talk too much, or not be what they need. She’s good at encouraging others and prefers to think the best of others… even Spike. Though she isn’t interested in reliving her past, particularly since it’s so traumatic, Fred remembers an astounding amount of information and details about her interests. She asks lots of questions to find out as many facts as she can, and frequently references movies, books, plays, and music in general conversation, weaving things she’s heard, seen, and read into broader contexts.

Enneagram: 6w5 sp/so

Fred just wants to feel safe, something she never felt in the alternate dimension. She refuses to come out of her room unless Angel is around for weeks, even though the others try to make her feel welcome, because the outside world seems too scary and intimidating. Once she figures out how she can be supportive of her friends, however, Fred starts to come out of her shell and even out from under the desk, becoming more bold, taking advantage of situations (pretending to be so scared she is willing to join the bad guys, then turning the crossbow on him and demanding he let her friends go unless he wants her to kill him). She is warm, funny, and likable, actively nervous around people but also able to disarm them with her sweetness and charm. Though she mostly shows a 5 wing in her creative thinking and big imagination, a well as her initial avoidance of the outside world, as time passes, Fred becomes more self-confident of her ideas and her role in their group and carries her own weight, becoming a bad-ass in her own right.

Angel: Kate Lockley [ISTJ 6w5]

Functional Order: Si-Te-Fi-Ne

Kate is a street-smart cop, who when she finds out the supernatural world exists, wants to know and define it through familiar terms. It unnerves her to think that what she has taken for granted as real all this time has been disguised as innocent, rather than the monsters that lurk beneath the surface. She is meticulous and trusts the details she gathers with her own investigations; this leads her to read things on a surface level at times, such as when she assumes Angel is a serial killer, because he fits the profile, has turned up in a bar where people have gone missing and acts suspiciously. She trusts him only after they work together long enough to establish her ability to rely on him. But then when she finds out he’s a vampire, she begins to doubt him and her own perceptions. Kate is factual, accurate, and cares about closing her case; she isn’t interested in the “why” so much as in getting things done. She acquires facts and makes decisions based off them, is blunt, and often argumentative at work. She is good at playing the “bad cop” and getting people to confess, as well as establishing hard boundaries with Angel (telling him to get out of her life, and leave her alone, even blaming him unjustly for her father’s death). But Kate has a lot of issues dealing with her emotions – she has to be under the influence of a magical stick to open up to her father and tell him how much she longed to hear praise and encouragement from him, that she needed to talk about her mother’s death (he never did). Rather than mourn with Angel in attendance, when she finds her father’s body, she kicks him out and demands that he leave. She is critical and quarrelsome at times, so much so that the department sends them all to “sensitivity training” for something she said to a suspect. Kate has poor intuition; she is almost never right in her hunches, blames the wrong people for crimes they didn’t commit, and is suspicious of anything she doesn’t know.

Enneagram: cp 6w5 so/sp

Kate is suspicious and distrustful. She doesn’t buy Angel’s story about being a private investigator, so she digs into him, links him to various crime scenes, and becomes convinced he is a serial killer. Even after his name is cleared, she continues to keep him at a safe distance, feeling both pulled toward him and going against him – arguing with him more than she agrees with him. She reacts against her fear by acting assertive, and going with a “tough girl” routine. Kate won’t let anyone get close to her, and hates to admit to her feelings, even though she is quite emotional on a regular basis. She trusts herself more than she trusts other people, and tries not to over-rely on them. Ultimately, she pushes Angel away because she blames him for her father getting mixed up in demon business – substituting Angel for the actual perpetrators and not wanting to admit to her father’s mistakes.

Justice League: Barry Allen / The Flash [INFP 6w7]

Function Order: Ti-Se-Ni-Fe

Barry’s father is worried about his son, since he is spending so much of his time mulling over how his father has gone to jail for something he didn’t do, rather than living his life. He puts all of his time and effort into trying to figure out how to save his dad, and neglects his own career in the process. He winds up in low-paying odd jobs as a result. Barry is quite independent from the rest of the League, in that he has strong feelings of right and wrong, but doesn’t bother to enforce them on anyone else. He is willing to give Superman another chance, even though he decimated half of Metropolis in a previous fight. Barry is highly creative, intuitive, and playful, always cracking jokes about everything and acting like the comic relief. He takes the time, when saving a girl from being hit by a truck, to playfully rearrange things so when real time resumes, it will turn out the way he wants. He is also of two minds when it comes to deciding whether to awaken Superman or not; he goes along with it, but second-guesses and questions it at the last second (maybe this isn’t such a good idea after all?). He tries to talk himself out of everything, with varying degrees of success. Barry pretty much relies on his speed most of the time to do anything, but can also be a little oblivious to his environment – when they all meet in one place, drawn by the Bat Signal (which he finds awesome), the rest of them melt away into the darkness without him, leaving him to awkwardly say goodbye to Gordon and depart. He immediately leaps at the chance to be in the League, out of excitement of the heroes it will introduce him to (Wonder Woman, Cyborg, and Batman… how insane is this?!). He’s something of a nerd, but also listens more than he participates. He expects others to come up with ideas for him to implement, and then goes along with it ,rather than creatively participating in brainstorming or speculating. Barry can go on and on, chattering even though no one is listening to him or interested.

Enneagram: 6w7 so/sp

Barry is so loyal to his father, instead of going out and living the life he could be living, he devotes his time to figuring out how to help him. He has a playful candor about him, but also feels more self-assured when in a group, goes easily along with their plans, and makes light of everything while trying to do what’s best for them and the planet by extension. He wins them over by being funny and cute, by having a sense of humor even when things look grim, and feeling confident that it will all somehow work out in the end (and if it doesn’t… something good will come along). He finds it hard to settle in any kind of job or profession for very long, but also doesn’t mind bending the rules a little to get ahead (he saves a girl, flips the truck, grabs some meat floating around, and then uses that to impress the dog walking place, by insisting that all dogs just LOVE him, by sneaking them treats).

Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Riley Finn [ISTJ cp 6w5]

Functional Order: Si-Te-Fi-Ne

Riley is a loyal and devoted soldier who takes his role in the Initiative seriously and who follows its rules without question, until he meets Buffy and starts becoming more like her – much to the distress of his commanding officer. Even though he joins the Scooby Gang, he still acts the role of a soldier, which has been his career up until now – he’s climbed up the ranks and achieved a high position, enough that they often put him in charge of squadrons when taking down vampires, monsters, and other creatures. Riley has no real interest in getting to know more about these monsters, just in defeating them – and he is curious about the Slayer insomuch as he wants to know her strengths and weaknesses, rather than her entire history or how she feels about it. His method is to “bag and tag,” rather than to differentiate between the good monsters and the bad – but he is a nice guy who defies direct orders when he meets Oz and sees that he has control over his werewolf tendencies. Riley still abides by the laws of his institution, allowing them to try him before a court martial once he’s sure he can come out unscathed. When he realizes he has been betrayed, manipulated, and even used as a lab rat (being pumped full of enhancing drugs), Riley feels so upset about it, he refuses to talk to Buffy or anyone else, running off to mourn the loss of his boss in private. He can be jealous and a little possessive, such as when he attacks Angel out of fear that Buffy and he have reconnected, and later, becomes a vampire addict out of a desire to understand “how Buffy felt” when Dracula bit her, and how she could fall under his thrall. Riley doesn’t really look past things that much, he prefers to deal with them hands-on. But he does know that leaving the Initiative is going to make it hard for him ever to return – and does it anyway.

Enneagram: cp 6w5 sx/so

Riley is suspicious and distrustful, but also loyal to his family, friends, and the Initiative. He doesn’t question it until Buffy raises serious questions about its intentions, and then he becomes more skeptical and questioning of what it’s up to. He doesn’t want to go back to them and have them fix his heart, since he’s afraid they might do something else to him or even kill him. His fears that Buffy might get hurt or overpowered cause him to want to fight for her, and go out on patrol with her – where he sticks to tried and true tactics, and is frustrated that the Scooby Gang can’t be more “stealth.” He has no evidence to believe Angel has lost his soul, or that Buffy slept with him in LA, but still operates off that wrongful assumption and attacks Angel. Riley trusts his own logic, and himself maybe too much at times, taking risks he shouldn’t in an effort to prove himself.

Sweeney Todd: Toby [ESFP 6w7]

Function Order: Se-Fi-Te-Ni

Toby is an excellent and charismatic little salesman, who puts all his talents to good use working for the Senor, as he tries to convince people to try the “miracle elixir” that helps their hair grow. He then turns around and uses this same sales technique to bring people into Mrs. Lovett’s pie shop, where she uses him as a salesman, server, and bouncer of “that old woman” (in case Sweeney should recognize his wife). He pesters her to let him learn how to make the meat pies, and is eager to grind up the meat, so long as he can help himself to a few pies along the way (and a bit of whiskey as well). Toby notices Mrs. Lovett is carrying around his master’s purse, and connects that to his objective assessment of Todd as a dangerous, unscrupulous person. He hasn’t seen anyone go missing, but has a sense that Todd cannot be trusted, and is determined to protect Mrs. Lovett against him. But she won’t listen to his warning, since she sees him through a romanticized light. Toby deeply cares for her, so much so that he avenges her after her death by slitting Todd’s throat as he cradles his dead wife in his arms. He’s also smart enough to hide once he realizes the truth, and to slip down and away into the sewers, even when he hears Mrs. Lovett sweetly calling his name. His hunch about Todd is right—he means no one any good.

Enneagram: 6w7 sp/so

Loyal and eager to serve, Toby is a good boy to his master, even if he’s beaten, starved, and abused by having his knuckles cut up by his master’s razors while he sharpens them on the strap. Toby is glad when Mrs. Lovett takes him in, and becomes loyal and protective over her, bouncing whomever she tells him to throw out and rushing to fulfill her every request, while adoring her for having rescued him from a sad life. But he is also suspicious by nature. Todd doesn’t seem right to him, and tells her as much, singing about his desire to keep her safe, and promising that no harm will come to her while he’s around. He’s unable to keep this promise, but still goes out of his way to avenge her and rid London of Todd, whom he now realizes is an unrepentant murderer. He wavers between suspicion and distrust, and having a gluttonous and good-natured side. He eats and drinks her out of house and home, until she figures out a better way to make a living.
