Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous: Darius Bowman [ISFJ 2w1]

Functional Order: Si-Fe-Ti-Ne

Perceiving Functional Axis:

Introverted Sensing (Si) / Extroverted Intuition (Ne)

Darius’ entire life is dinosaur facts. He lives, breathes, and talks about little else, other than his plans with his father to visit Jurassic World. Once it all goes wrong, Darius’ deep knowledge of dinosaurs helps them all survive—he knows how to outsmart them, what they are drawn to, even that they need to shut off the lights to avoid being attacked while flying through the sky toward the docks. His down to earth leadership makes the others turn to him for guidance, because he knows what he’s talking about. He shows very little Ne other than occasional cautiousness when they have ventured too far into the unknown (“should we be here? On which side of the fence are we?”) and excitement to visit the park.

Judging Functional Axis:

Extroverted Feeling (Fe) / Introverted Thinking (Ti)

He motivates the other kids through “we,” selling them on the idea of survival as being a group. He considered himself and his dad inseparable and talks about him easily when prompted, even though he has lost him. Darius has a warm and reassuring nature, and often tries to stop the others from arguing or motivate them to keep going. He likes to understand things and puzzle them through; his determination to crack the dinosaur game gets him a free ticket into the park. He’s also quite creative in how he problem-solves, and doesn’t let anything stump him for too long.

Enneagram: 2w1 so/sp

Darius feels responsible for keeping his friends alive, and helping everyone survive the chaos in the Park. When forced to let go of Ben on the rail, he carries the guilt of that with him throughout the rest of the season and into the next one, until their discovery that Ben has survived. He’s forever rushing to help other people, often risking his own life in the process. Darius figures out that the man-eating dinosaurs are “family” and frees them to be together, even though he initially argued they should leave one of them in their cage, because the predator would only come after them. He takes on an unofficial ‘daddy’ position in the group, assuming he must take care of and provide for everyone, adjusting to meet their needs and wishes. His 1 wing is principled and wants to do the right thing, feels a great deal of guilt over his mistakes, and castigates him whenever he does anything wrong.

Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous: Kenji Kon [ESTP 7w6]

Functional Order: Se-Ti-Fe-Ni

Perceiving Functional Axis:

Extroverted Sensing (Se) / Introverted Intuition (Ni)

Kenji is an opportunist to the max—he climbs down into an unknown dinosaur pen to fetch Brooklynn’s phone to impress her, despite not knowing it is safe or not. When stuck doing cleanup duty as a punishment, he convinces Darius to go with him to see Toro, an angry and large carnivorous dinosaur… but they accidentally wind up on the wrong side of the fence (in with the dinosaur). He smoothly takes credit then for saving his friend! He is quick to act to save the others and manages to have a good time while doing it, and has a casual attitude about most things. Kenji has no plan for his future life, other than to make up for his parents ignoring him, and no focus beyond the moment.

Judging Functional Axis:

Introverted Thinking (Ti) / Extroverted Feeling (Fe)

He can figure out things as he goes, and can be blunt and detached, wondering why people are upset about something or why they got their feelings hurt. He often says insulting things without realizing it… because he is trying to get the girls to like him by being boastful, taking credit for good things and ignoring his mistakes, and generally being a big flirt. Kenji wants to be thought well of, and caters his image to appeal to them, while failing to cope with his own feelings about how his parents neglect him.

Enneagram: 7w6 so/sp

Kenji orients himself to having a good time and keeping the mood light. He is somewhat arrogant, irresponsible, and disinterested in doing the hard work involved in keeping them alive; he would far rather show off his superior knowledge of the Park (and what his daddy’s money has bought him) than doing boring stuff like gather supplies. He would rather go to sleep under the “resting tree” than pick up sticks to build their shelter. He tries to keep things light, his friends in good humor, and to focus on optimism rather than pessimism. He can rather foolishly rush headlong into danger, only for his 6 wing to kick in and become anxious, worried about his safety, and not want to take unnecessary risks. He bounces between over-confidence and insecurity, being a braggart and needing people to like him, playing it risky and then playing it safe.

Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous: Brooklynn [ESFP 3w2]

Functional Order: Se-Fi-Te-Ni

Perceiving Functional Axis:

Extroverted Sensing (Se) / Introverted Intuition (Ni)

Brooklynn is on the cusp of everything popular and fabulous, a trend-setting “influencer” with over a 27 million followers. Her entire focus is on being present and capturing what is going on around her, all so she can share it, of course! Brooklynn can be somewhat shallow and superficial, obsessed with her phone and disinterested in boring information that won’t excite her followers. She is also opportunistic and takes unnecessary risks, such as going out at night to record dinosaurs with her phone and accidentally dropping it into the raptor cage. She knows Sammy took her phone when it went missing, because she saw Sammy taking samples in the background of one of her videos, and refuses to budge from this position.

Judging Functional Axis:

Introverted Feeling (Fi) / Extroverted Thinking (Te)

She is easily insulted and frustrated, lashing out emotionally when her phone goes missing and causing problems with the other campers. She doesn’t listen to Darius’ pleas for them to make up, and treats Sammy like a pariah for awhile, before she decides to forgive her and get along, because it is the right thing to do and makes more sense to her. Brooklynn is interested in tangible rewards for her efforts—follows, likes, and accolades, and draws logical conclusions from what she sees.

Enneagram: 3w2 social

Fame. That’s all Sammy wants and fixates on constantly—being the cool girl with a ton of followers who love everything she does… and when they don’t love it, she becomes obsessed with impressing them in order to get them back. She can brag about her home life and her rich girl stuff in order to impress the other kids also. Brooklynn doesn’t understand how others can not care about how others see them, and it’s not until she loses her phone that she starts paying attention to the other people in the group, not just scheming how to attract back lost followers. Brooklynn just assumes everyone is going to love her.

Jurassic Park: Camp Cretaceous: Yasmina Fadoula [ISTP 5w6]

Functional Order: Ti-Se-Ni-Fe

Judging Functional Axis:

Introverted Thinking (Ti) / Extroverted Feeling (Fe)

Yas can figure out how to do things fairly quickly, once she needs to; she often scoffs at the other kids for being irrational or stupid, and does not like to slow down for them. She can make more detached decisions than them, but is often overruled—she points out the baby dinosaur will slow them down and wants to leave it behind, much to Ben’s anguish. She is unsociable and gruff, often blunt in her assessment of others, and inclined to tell people to back off in their accusations. Under stress, she becomes more emotional, blaming others for what is happening. Yas slowly opens up to Sammy and shares her drawings with her, then feels hurt when she believes (wrongly) that Sammy has used her friendship to conceal her true intentions at the camp.

Perceiving Functional Axis:

Extroverted Sensing (Se) / Introverted Intuition (Ni)

At home, she is extremely athletic and trains as a runner every day. She’s eager to get back to doing that, but in the meantime, it gives her way more stamina in the park than her companions. She is quick to leap in and do things, whether that involves jumping out of a boat to distract a dinosaur from attacking her friends, or driving a van recklessly through the woods and managing not to hit trees. Mostly. Yas doesn’t want to believe the worst of Sammy without evidence, but also forms hunches and conclusions that are right… and wrong. She often acts without thinking.

Enneagram: 8w9 self-preservation

Yas is quick to leap into action and to take over and has no problem being in charge, but she does not always think things through before committing to them (such as when she strands herself banging on a pipe so her friends can escape). She reacts instinctively from her gut and expects others to fall in line. She’s afraid to open up and be vulnerable to other people, so she pushes them away. She’s angry when she does open up, when she believes Sammy has betrayed that trust by not being genuine (faking being nice to make friend as her cover). She doesn’t like a fuss and will tune out her problems and/or walk away from people.

Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous: Sammy Gutierrez [ESFJ 2w1]

Functional Order: Fe-Si-Ne-Ti

Judging Functional Axis:

Extroverted Feeling (Fe) / Introverted Thinking (Ti)

Sammy is a highly extroverted girl who loves to talk to the people around her and build connections. She is eager to make friends and tries to get Yas to open up and talk to her, come out of her shell, and be more part of the group. As the plot unfolds, we find out she has volunteered to do something dangerous and illegal to help her family not lose their home. She is quite hurt when others reject her, since she does not want to lose their support and friendship, and eager to make up and be friends once again. She is warm and personable, if a bit loud and excited about everything, but doesn’t really think things through.

Perceiving Functional Axis:

Introverted Sensing (Si) / Extroverted Intuition (Ne)

“Back home on my ranch in Texas…” seems to be her staple answer to everything. Sammy is always referencing what she knows, what experience she has had (if dinosaurs are anything like cattle…), and how it compares to the present situation. She is attentive to the environment and eager to engage with it, but can also be cautious and inventive. Sammy has a keen sense of fun and bubbly enthusiasm for life, which comes from her tert-Ne’s ability to see the humor in most situations.

Enneagram: 2w1 social

Sammy is all about taking care of her family; she volunteered behind their back to do a dangerous thing so that they would not lose their home, taking their burden onto herself. She is outgoing, social, easily offended/hurt, and tries to make others feel wanted and invited to participate. She tries to make friends with Yas and feels personally slighted when Yas becomes angry at her for the lies she told. Sammy does not want to do the wrong thing, but often hides the truth about herself to avoid facing the others’ wrath or feelings of resentment. She cares a lot about whether she is liked and accepted and included and only perks back up when her friends forgive her.

Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous: Ben Pincus [ISFJ 6w5]

Functional Order: Si-Fe-Ti-Ne

Ben has zero desires to go outside his comfort zone, or stray from what he knows best; his mother sent him to the camp to force him to face his fears, but he continues in his over-emphasis on cleanliness rather than directly engaging with the environment until he meets Bumpy, and befriends the little dinosaur. He would rather read  books and think, but as he gains more experience and witnesses the others being brave, Ben becomes more assertive with the other kids and risks his life to save them. He is emotionally expressive and willing to talk about his fears, also does not like conflict among his peers, and sees them as a group. Ben will argue with them, then follow along with them out of a desire not to get left behind alone. He feels empathy for Bumpy and refuses to leave him in the woods alone, thus slowing down their progress overall, since he has to half-carry, half-push the baby dinosaur. He doesn’t like to be an inconvenience for the other kids and feels he needs to repay them for being a nuisance by being brave and figuring out what to do in the control room to save their lives. He has very little imagination and no desire to theorize on things, instead focusing on his practical daily needs (and making sure he has enough hand sanitizer!).

Enneagram: 6w5 sp/so

Ben is… neurotically afraid of everything. Germs. Dinosaurs. Loud noises. Other people. Being alone. His great desire for his own survival means taking along hand sanitizer, packing his bag with “good for you” treats that the other kids think taste like sawdust, and drinking awful juice. He is over-reliant on authority and doesn’t like to break the rules, but will go along with the other kids just to avoid being left alone in the middle of nowhere. He would rather stay inside than leave his house. Ever.
