Smallville: Clark Kent [ESFJ 6w7]

Functional Order: Fe-Si-Ne-Ti

He assumes he is responsible for everyone else—their safety, happiness, and well-being. He carries that burden, even though he has no personal contact with any of them, out of a larger sense of social responsibility and obligation. Because he is special, he “owes” the world something back. Clark has a pretty quick tendency to judge, based on objective standards of behavior: things are either right or wrong, good or bad, and he has no qualms about stopping bad guys – but also refuses to do them harm, since that would violate his beliefs. He tends to internalize things and brood; he sometimes confides in his parents or other people he trusts, but tends to act on his feelings more than share them; he’s much less open than Lana, even though he adores her and devotes most of his life to a silent worship of her from afar. He turns around and complains to his parents that he cannot be himself, airing his feelings while things are happening. Clark spends most of his time and efforts helping out around the farm (mostly without complaint, except when he’s under the influence of Red Kryptonite), and finding people he can help. He takes a special interest in finding out anything he can about his ancestry, especially when it comes to the caves outside Smallville and their strange markings that might tell him more about who he is. He is forever leaping into direct action to save someone, and then worrying about the consequences of it later—as his lower Ne starts fretting about how it might come across, or how it might threaten his family. He wants to have a normal high school boy experience and to play football, and finds it difficult to obey his father’s refusals (Jonathan fears he might accidentally reveal his powers or hurt someone). Clark takes people at face value, but also wants what is best for them, and encourages Lex to move away from his father’s influence and become a good person. Even though his relationship with Lana never quite works, Clark spends over 6 years pining for “the girl next door,” being in and out of relationships with her, and longing for her. He also finds it hard to move on from his past, or sell the farm when his mother becomes a professional politician in Metropolis. Whenever under Red Kryptonite, he becomes extremely selfish, cutting, and shares his true feelings (he hates being poor, he hates not having cool toys, he hates feeling confined to the farm). Clark often wants to know “why” people do what they do, and why they made the choices they did. He wants to know what has caused Lex to murder his father, and what kind of a person would ever do that.

Enneagram: 6w7 so/sp

Clark is much more distrustful and suspicious than either Chloe or Lana (two heart/image types); he’s more distrustful when he meets people, and tends to wonder about their agendas – he often cautions them against trusting people, and is concerned with any red flags he sees about them (instead of finding it romantic that a boy is writing Lana poetry and leaving it in the cemetery at night, he wonders what he is hiding; when Lana is saved by a masked vigilante from a meteor freak who is trying to kill him, Clark doesn’t like the idea of an armed gunman running around, and wonders what his agenda is; when Lex teachers Lana how to kick-box and protect herself, Clark is worried she might get in over her head). He doesn’t want Chloe digging around in his life, because she might unearth his secret, and feels responsible to his family and friends, but also sends Lana a ton of mixed signals. One day he’s confident they should be together, the next he’s pushing her away because he’s afraid being with him might get her hurt (and he’s devastated to hear her say the only person that keeps hurting her is Clark). Though he often rushes in to save the day, out of a desire to help humanity, he will immediately start second-guessing himself and wishing he hadn’t done that, because it has somehow endangered his family. He also shows a lot of wing 7 tendencies, in his multiple attempts to re-frame things positively and escape from dealing with other people’s hurt feelings. Clark feels responsible for what happened to his mom and the miscarriage at the end of season two, so he chooses to put on a Red Kryptonite ring (which he knows will make him not care about anything) and drive off to live the high life in Metropolis – literally running away from all of his problems and responsibilities, because he can’t stand dealing with the pain. He remains optimistic about Lex and constantly urges him to be a better person, and doesn’t like his dad reining him in – a big part of Clark wants to be popular, and to have the nice things all his friends have, and resents being poor. He is forever trying to pretend like he’s done nothing wrong after hurting his friends’ feelings, as if glossing over it will get him forgiven (the many times he’s stood up Lana, showing up with a rose and an apology, hoping she’ll forget his bad behavior or Red K actions and continue on as if nothing has happened).

Smallville: Lex Luthor [INTJ 3w2]

Functional Order: Ni-Te-Fi-Se

 Perceiving Functional Axis:

Introverted Intuition (Ni) / Extroverted Sensing (Se)

From the first moment Lex meets Clark, he knows Clark is special, the incident on the bridge is significant, and Clark is concealing his true identity. No matter how many ways Clark proves to him that he is “normal,” Lex continues pursuing “the truth.” Lex is a master at futuristic thinking in terms of his professional life, continually matching and trying to outsmart his father’s business proposals and dealings. His ultimate ambition is to become a global leader or president. Lex is hesitant to take action toward that end until he is certain of success. He takes a lot of time to mull over decisions before committing to them and is unwavering in his resolve to make his visionary concepts real. His inferior Se is the bane of his life, because he over-indulges his sexual and expensive appetites (his tendency to love them and leave them almost gets him killed). He tries to buy Kent loyalty with expensive loans and gifts. Lex is not an avid risk-taker, but sometimes places himself in dangerous positions… and he drives too fast.

Judging Functional Axis:

Extroverted Thinking (Te) / Introverted Feeling (Fi)

Strategy, bottom lines, business proposals, and rational decisions dominate Lex’s professional life. He is not as adept at making those decisions or leading as his father but Lex wants rational reasons to support his philanthropic efforts. He strives to push others to make more rational choices – when Lana appeals to him emotionally to save the Talon, to preserve her parents’ memories, Lex refuses until she shows him a way to make it profitable. His intense emotions often influence his decisions, and result in his father’s condemnation for being too “soft.” Lex wrestles with his desire to succeed and compromising his moral integrity; being around Clark encourages him toward more moral actions, but his ultimate ambition shines through. He protects those he cares about at all costs, taking the blame for his brother’s death to protect his mother (his reason was also rational: “I was your sole remaining heir, Dad… I knew you wouldn’t let anything happen to me!”), but his inability to connect emotionally to Lana in ways that she understands leads him to manipulate her in an attempt to keep her in his life.

Enneagram: 3w2 social

Lex is ambitious, though he does not always admit to it – one of the earliest “visions” a psychic has of him is his desire to become the president; throughout the series, he focuses on seeming successful, achieving his goals, putting on a courageous front under pressure, refusing to give in to his father’s bullying tactics, and in achieving success. His 3 makes him lack introspection, focusing instead on making the most of situations and achieving success; he’s very angry when his father makes him look bad, and often wears a social mask appropriate to the situation – being more remorseful and compassionate with the Kents, more direct and assertive with his father, more seductive with women, and aggressive with reporters. Being the best, competing to win, coming out on top, and having power are important to him. His 2 wing drives his desperate desire for love from his father as well as makes him manipulative of Clark and the Kents – giving them gifts in an attempt to “buy” their love. He doesn’t trust Lana not to leave him, so he manipulates her into believing she’s pregnant, to make her stay with him.

Smallville: Lana Lang [ISFJ 2w1]

Functional Order: Si-Fe-Ti-Ne

Lana Lang is often haunted by the past image of her as the ‘sad little girl in the fairy princess costume,’ and she carries deep sentiment for past items (for example: she originally wears the necklace her mother left behind and has difficulty letting go of the Talon when moving to France). She also often looks to the past for answers (for example: using her mother’s journal behind her reasoning to quit cheer-leading in the first season). Lana’s repeated frustrations and disappointments with Clark missing dates and never explaining his actions to her contribute to her overall picture of him, and make her reluctant to date him for awhile. Lana is very empathetic, and often volunteers to help Clark in his altruistic pursuits whenever she can. She is very intimidated by confrontation and remains in a relationship with Whitney for quite some time due to pity. Lana is comfortable talking about how she feels, and often looks to express these feelings with the other characters to gain some form of comfort when something goes wrong. She tends to give people the benefit of the doubt, and will crusade on their behalf if she sees an injustice being done to them. Though she leads with her emotions when asking Lex to preserve the Talon out of sentimentality toward her parents’ history there, when he asks her to give him a reason to keep the theater open, she analyzes the situation and comes up with a money-making endeavor: a coffee shop. Lana is very intellectually curious and has a burning need to understand people and events. This curiosity leads her to become sucked into Lex’s obsession with the spaceship in season four. Her inferior Ne shows in her tendency to change her mind often and switch her life course. Although Lana strives to be more independent, she doesn’t create one set goal for herself in order to be considered as such. She often experiments with lifestyles, choosing to move from cheerleader to coffee maker at the Talon to ‘girl who goes to Paris’ in order to see where she belongs. Lana is the only character upon high school graduation who is not entirely sure if she wants to go to college.

Enneagram: 2w1 so/sp

Lana wants more than anything to be loved, so she finds ways to serve others to get that – by staying with Whitney when he goes off to war because she feels he needs him; by volunteering at the old folks’ home and being there for her friends; by giving Clark chances, and being annoyed when he doesn’t reciprocate or show up on time to a date (she doesn’t understand why he’s chronically late). Lana wants total honesty in all her emotional relationships and demands it of her partners, expecting them to be open in their communication with her and sharing of all their secrets. 2s want no barriers between them and others. She has a fiery tendency to assert herself, to express her feelings frankly, and to shift into 8-ish aggression under stress or when she’s angry (telling people off, taking self-defense lessons, working actively against Lex when she finds out he has manipulated her, and conning him out of an enormous amount of money). Her 1 wing makes her want to be moral and often lecture others on their bad behaviors.

Smallville: Chloe Sullivan [ENFP 3w2]

Functional Order: Ne-Fi-Te-Si

Chloe believes all the “freaks” in Smallville are connected to the meteor shower. She covers her wall with photos, news stories, and other “evidence” of surreal events in an attempt to build a broad, networking concept. Her principle often accuses her of reporting without facts, using hypothesis and speculation to draw big picture concepts. Chloe trusts her instincts but isn’t hesitant to change hypothesis when Clark throws logical explanations or excuses in her path. She knows something is up with Clark and is intent on finding out what it is. Once she learns his true identity, Chloe realizes the greater potential for his powers and seeks to protect him in whatever way she can. Chloe is seriously indecisive about anything that relates to her feelings (she cannot decide whether to give up on Clark and stay in a relationship with him or give up, since he only has eyes for Lana). She dumps Clark shortly after the prom fearing he’s going to dump her first, kind of a counter-move to protect her feelings. Chloe resists others’ attempts to control her, and because she feels so strongly about her own abandonment, she doesn’t understand why Clark doesn’t want to “find his real parents.” Chloe temporarily is “fired” from her job as Editor of The Torch for printing material her principle disapproves of. She champions causes in print, and often battles “the establishment.” She is deeply hurt by others’ criticisms and not always quick to comprehend their true motivations (when Lana takes over as editor, Chloe has an emotional meltdown, not realizing Lana was only trying to help). Her organizational skills, attention to word counts, editing talent, and ability to meet deadlines make her an excellent reporter with a real shot at working for the Daily Planet. Chloe collects facts to back up her conclusions as much as she can. She also has an acidic tongue that emerges sometimes under the influence of spells or other influences (being “high” makes her rude to Lex Luthor). She often acts on her feelings, without considering the fall out of becoming involved with the Luthors. Her inferior Si gets her in trouble at school, when the principle accuses her of “writing articles based on theories without proof (details). She holds on to grudges and feelings past their due date, and uses her personal experiences as guideposts in offering others advice (she warns Lana not to have sex until she really believes she loves the other person, because her first time was disappointing).

Enneagram: 3w2 so/sp

Chloe is hard-working and ambitious. She has her eye on being an ace reporter for the Daily Planet, and is determined to show her worth in running a successful school newspaper. When the principle suspends her as the editor and turns it over to Lana, Chloe is deeply insulted and suspects her best friend of plotting against her – because her entire identity and self is wrapped up in The Torch, and she is nothing without it. Chloe wants to win, or she won’t try at all, which shows in her on-and-off crush on Clark. She is afraid he will pick Lana over her every time, so she constantly backs away from asserting her love for him. She is good at delegating and has high personal standards for others, in addition to herself; she is annoyed when the other students do not turn in their work on time, or slack off, because they don’t find reporting as important as she does. When given the chance to break a big story, Chloe will sacrifice her safety and well-being to do it. She thinks she is being “helpful” in showing society the dark underbelly of criminals. Her 2 wing can also be overpowering with Clark, since she often intrudes into his personal life, finding out things about his adoption, all in an effort to win him over and be “helpful.” She’s effective at hiding his secrets and protecting him as a friend, though, showing a 2’s devotion to others and loyalty.

Smallville: Lois Lane [ESTP 8w7]

Functional Order: Se-Ti-Fe-Ni

Lois is a “here and now” kind of girl. She’s able to notice what’s going on around her and pick up on the smallest possible details (unless she’s drunk, and even then she’s still aware of her environment). Her ability to think fast and take immediate action saves her life on many occasions. Lois loves to have a good time. She tends to rush headlong into situations before considering all her options – sometimes Clark has to literally drag her away from a fight. She refuses to take anything at face value, but instead questions everything with an earnest desire to get to the truth. It doesn’t matter if it’s finding out what Clark is hiding or digging up dirt on someone, Lois constantly asks questions. She is quick to notice inconsistencies and unafraid to point them out using her rapier wit. Her willingness to put aside what she wants to make other people happy is one of the many things Clark finds frustrating and attractive about her. Lois nearly refuses to marry him because each moment he spends with her, he could be using to save lives. She vigorously defends the people she loves and will do anything to protect them. Even when she lacks evidence, Lois knows when something is wrong. Though she denies it, Lois is a little bit of a dreamer. She also has a clear image of Clark’s future potential and tries to help him actualize that vision (inferior Ni).

Enneagram: 8w7 so/sx

Lois doesn’t like wimps. She isn’t going to be one, either. Proud of her army brat status, she can kick your butt all over the place if she thinks you need it. As a social 8, she has a softer approach to people, seeing them as needing her to help and protect them rather than wanting to dominate them. Her 7 wing gives her a playful, fun-loving energy that Martha doesn’t always appreciate (such as when she finds Lois and Clark in the same bathroom half-dressed). She can be rebellious, aggressive, and suspicious. She becomes analytical and paranoid under stress (moving to 5). It’s hard for her to open up into her feelings, but she does grow more confident in sharing that vulnerable side of herself (growing into 2). Her 7 makes her extra fearless and love throwing herself into an adventure, as well as not wanting to face her darker side or get stuck in “boring” things like repeating a grade.

Smallville: Lionel Luthor [ENTJ 8w7]

Functional Order: Te-Ni-Se-Fi

Lionel is a shrewd businessman who makes decisions based on profits and productivity rather than the human element involved—his decision to shut down the factories in Smallville come from them not producing enough revenue for him to consider keeping them open. He miscalculates severely the emotional impact this will have upon the people of Smallville, leading one man to take the factory (and later, his son) hostage in retaliation for his nefarious schemes. Again and again, he and his son fall prey to the consequences of his brutal decision-making, when those with ‘ruined lives’ attack them. He always has an end game in mind, and is often ten steps ahead of his son—as Lex laments ruefully in one episode, “While I have been playing checkers, my father has been playing chess.” He knows what he wants his son to be and is attempting to mold him into it, always finding ways to challenge him, circumvent his logic, and go behind his back to ‘one-up’ him (this is also because he’s an 8). Lionel senses his son is getting up a “coup” against him, and quickly countermands it, by buying out his supporters. He is also adept in taking advantage of situations as they arise, sensing dissent among the men holding him hostage, and offering to double whatever their boss is paying them, to let him keep the files in the safe. Pretending to be blind longer than his illness so that he can watch the people around him. Making various moves on Martha, in order to keep her close and learn more about his son. He has an active sex life, and cheated on his wife numerous times, even initiating a relationship with his son’s ex in the first season. He outsmarts his son in bidding wars and is constantly trying to force him to become more ruthless, but as time and the show goes on, Lionel begins to nurse his Fi more and more, in learning to connect to things of value, and even attempting to mentor Clark in subtle ways.

Enneagram: 8w7 sp/sx

Lionel is aware of the power in the room and who has it. He dominates his son ruthlessly, seeking ways to exploit his weaknesses and them shame him for them, in an effort to “mold him” into a “man.” Lionel gets a kick out of being the one with all the power, to the downfall of others. He manages, successfully, to make no less than a half dozen people mad enough at him to want him dead at any given time. Lionel sneers at human emotions as weakness, and denies his son any form of affection other than high standards. He’s a deeply unhealthy 8, who is all about controlling rather than protecting. His 7 wing routinely denies personal responsibility and escapes the negative side of life through pleasure-seeking (affairs, romantic entanglements, expensive trips).

Smallville: Martha Kent [ESFJ 2w3]

Functional Order: Fe-Si-Ne-Ti

Martha has a warm and generous heart, easily touched by anyone in need of empathy; she doesn’t hesitate to take in Clark when they find him as a child, nor to hide him from the authorities when they discover his “super abilities.” Martha is compassionate toward Lex, Lionel, Lana, Chloe, and just about everyone else she encounters, willing to give them the benefit of the doubt and fight for them if need be. She sometimes conflicts with Jonathan for “being rude,” or “ungenerous” to others. She lives in a dual world of missing her former life of action and being in the business world, and contentment in a simple life in Smallville. Martha takes comfort in a certain level of predictability and sameness. She evaluates people on her personal interactions with them, and does not often read between the lines in their behavior based on more than their previous encounters (this leads her to be somewhat gullible with Lionel). She is down to earth, practical, and sentimental; she wants her son to have “as normal a life” as possible, and is a bit traditional in certain of her values… but also more open-minded than Jonathan when it comes to making decisions and “considering possibilities” beyond what is obvious; she is open to allowing the Luthers to assist them in keeping the farm, and in exploring new options. Martha steps into her husband’s senatorial seat after his death and widens her scope. She hungers for new activities and ideas to excite her imagination and is fairly good at seeing what is “truly going on” with the people around her (knowing Clark’s inner secrets about Lana, and some of Jonathan’s true motives). Most of her decisions are motivated through her emotions, but her inferior Ti causes plenty of trouble. It is difficult for her to evaluate people objectively, particularly when she loves them; Martha is manipulated by Lionel because she prefers to see him in a romantic, tormented light rather than pause and reflect on the motives behind his “kindness.” But she is also fairly good at evaluating people’s decisions (including her own) and urging them to step away from sentimentality and embrace a new life (like urging Clark to sell the farm and start over in Metropolis).

Enneagram: 2w3 sp/so

Martha is hard-working and selfless. She is forever contributing to good causes around town, and taking on others’ personal needs as her own. She turns up at bake sales with food, and tries to guide her son and husband in ways she sees fit. She often mediates between them, attempting to get them to reach common ground, and appeals to them with a 2’s persuasive tactics. But she can also be firm under pressure, and decisive when it comes to protecting her family. Though she quit her high-profile job in Metropolis to be helpful to her husband, she misses it—and feels happiest when allowed to do greater things. Her 3 wing loves to work for Lionel and feel powerful. It easily steps into her husband’s senate seat and even runs for reelection.

Smallville: Jonathan Kent [ISTJ 1w2]

Functional Order: Si-Te-Fi-Ne

Jonathan is an all American farmer at heart; he’s content to live on and work the land that has been in his family for generations. He’s proud of his heritage and his past. He is cautious in his decisions. Most of all, though, his personal experiences, and those of others, color and influence all his decisions; his acquaintance with Lionel and how he “screwed Pete’s father out of the corn factory” biases him against Lex and makes him suspicious of Luther Corp (because if they have dirty dealt once, they’ll do it again). He pinches pennies. He crunches numbers. Everything has a bottom line and a price tag attached to Jonathan. Logic is his go-to when dealing with problems; it’s also his default when handling the Luthers, where he frequently puts his foot down and is wary of their business deals (what will be the consequences of trusting them?). Jonathan tries to exert some measure of control over the farm and his family, to keep them safe; this also leads him to be blunt and, on occasion, lay down “the law” on his son (who naturally rebels, causing conflict). “No means no.” When Jonathan refuses to do something, he doesn’t change his mind. Nor does he alter his views to keep people happy, or soften his advice or moral code to be “polite.” Jonathan can be incredibly moral and ethical, with strong values that disapprove intensely of the decisions made by the Luthors; he can also refuse to back down or give anyone leeway that he doesn’t trust. But his motives are pure: he wants to keep his son safe. Due to his fearful inferior Ne, Jonathan is paranoid, with good reason; he doesn’t know what the Luthers are going to do, or what their grand design is, only that in the past they have proven themselves to be untrustworthy… so he is dutiful and cautious in dealing with them. He has a tendency to “wait for the worst” to happen and to warn his son against becoming too friendly with Lex. Fear of the future keeps him on his toes, but also means not always letting Clark do what he wants to do… like play football.

Enneagram: 1w2 sp/so

Jonathan is all about duty, honor, and doing the right thing, which enables him to teach Clark how to be a responsible, moral person. He makes Clark return a truck Lex gives him as a gift, because he believes good actions should not receive “rewards” (especially from people as untrustworthy as the Luthors). Clark and he often conflict on matters of moral integrity, since he can be rigid in his belief system, self-confident and self-assured in being right, and find it incredibly hard to apologize or back down from his gut-fixed angry reactions. Jonathan’s 2 wing makes his 1 even more inclined to moralize and stand up for himself; he has a black and white view of the behaviors of Lionel and his son, and wants nothing to do with them or their negative influence on his family. But his 2 wing also believes in being selfless and hard-working, giving in the expectation of establishing solid relationships.

Smallville: Whitney Fordman [ESFP 3w2]

Functional Order: Se-Fi-Te-Ni

Whitney cannot wait to get out of Smallville. He longs for bigger things, better things. He dreams of becoming a football star for the team in Metropolis. He becomes incredibly depressed when his dad’s illness makes him believe he may be stuck in the family store for the rest of his life. Whitney loves being physical – and this gets him into trouble. He’s good at improvising in the environment to take care of people he loves, but is prone to risk-taking; he falls in with a bunch of thrill-seeking boys, and becomes part of a gang for awhile who use meteor-rock-tattoos to walk through walls. Whitney joins the marines and ships out, then goes on to SPOILER save his fellow soldiers and get killed in combat. Since Whitney tends to live so much in the moment, he cannot fathom his feelings for Lana ever changing – and somewhat unreasonably, asks her to “wait for me.” He thinks he has a future with Lana, and holds onto it even when his life radically changes–after he joins the marines. He deeply internalizes his emotions; when his dad becomes sick, Whitney doesn’t talk to anyone. Clark has to push him to open up to Lana and tell her what is truly going on. He tends to become internalized whenever his emotions are high; the deeper the situation is (his dad’s heart attacks), the less he opens up … but his feelings for Lana, and about Clark, ride on the surface. His loyalty to his friends causes conflict with Lana, since he has more of a “people make their own choices” mentality (yes, cheating was wrong, but they’re good guys… I’m going to stand by them). He acts on his feelings, sometimes for the good (he does defend Lex and confront the others about what they are doing is “wrong” when they blackmail Lex with a disc) and sometimes for the bad–such as when, out of resentment / jealousy toward Clark liking his girlfriend, he chooses Clark to be “this year’s scarecrow.” He does not question his own actions so much as chooses to act on them. Whitney wants to achieve a certain amount of external success–to do something worthwhile with his life.Whitney senses Clark “likes” his girlfriend and doesn’t like it. He becomes depressed when he feels like he’s “stuck” with no way to move forward (inferior Ni).

Enneagram: 3w2 so/sx

Whitney longs for bigger and better things and feels deep resentment that he is stuck in Smallville and cannot have a more impressive life. His entire identity wraps around his football stardom, and he chooses a career that will impress others in the military but also allow him to help them. Whitney at first is deeply egocentric and arrogant, immature and out of touch with his feelings; he hides the truth about his dad’s illness from Lana rather than talk about it, and excludes her from the truth. He absorbs himself in work and pleasurable distractions to avoid thinking about it. He likes to be praised and thought well of, can be mean and a bully, but also has a side that wants love, acceptance, and recognition. He can be manipulative at times, not wanting to face up to the realization that he isn’t as good as his ego would have him believe.

Smallville: Pete Ross [ESTP 7w6]

Function Order: Se-Ti-Fe-Ni

Pete is all about the here and now—about taking cute girls to the prom or for a spin in the limo, about hitting on Chloe, and about playing sports to get out of being the next “Smallville Scarecrow.” When he finds the spaceship in a cornfield, Pete hauls Clark out there to help him carry it off, reasoning that if they wait much longer, someone else might come along and find it (he lied to the sheriff about not remembering the scene of the accident, to hide it). He also takes things at a surface value, assuming because he only told Clark, and now it’s missing, and he saw him and his dad leaving, that they must have stolen it. Pete when he finds out about his best friend’s powers immediately asks if he has ever used his X-ray vision to look into the girl’s locker room. For a while, he takes up drag racing for the thrill, until it almost gets him hurt. Pete eventually decides to move away from his friends because he feels like keeping Clark’s secret while being around him is too difficult, and that he might mess up and expose his best friend. He is aware of how things look to others, and thinks in terms of “group protection,” but is also somewhat impulsive—when someone threatens him, Pete tells him that spaceship belongs to someone bigger and stronger than him, so he’d better not mess with Pete – only to realize a minute later that he almost exposed Clark. He winds up being kidnapped and held for information. Pete shows a lot of tert-Fe in the openness of his communication. He is still angry about how Lionel Luther “screwed my family out of the corn factory” years after it happened, and uses that as his reasoning for hating his friend Clark’s new friendship with Lex. On the few occasions Pete is under the influence of a foreign or alien artifact, he relishes telling Lex to his face what he thinks of him. He also confides in Chloe that he’s afraid Lex is stealing his best friend, contributing to his jealousy over their friendship. Pete has weak intuition. He rarely thinks about anything beyond the moment or looks ahead. He’s skeptical of all Chloe’s theories and thinks they are somewhat absurd (until he finds a space ship, and then they seem more plausible). Pete is naturally suspicious of Lex, and sometimes of others that turn up in their life, but his insights into people are often wrong.

Enneagram: 7w8 so/sp

Pete is all about keeping things light, flirting with girls, and having a good time. He has a quick sense of humor, and likes to have fun, whether that includes dangerous sports or purchasing a class ring. He is also aggressive in his pursuit of what he wants—and sometimes angry about not being confided in. Pete’s desire to keep things interesting means living on the edge, feeling somewhat jealous at times of what others have, and longing for a more interesting life. He thinks it’s cool once he finds out about Clark’s abilities, because of the new world it opens up for him and all the fabulous things they can now do together. His 6 wing shows up whenever bad things happen in Smallville. He becomes suspicious and even paranoid, distrusting Lex and feeling concerned with the possibility of betraying his best friend. Eventually fear that he might expose Clark causes him to walk out on their friendship, because he couldn’t stand to hurt his friend like that.
