Chris Halliwell (Charmed): INTJ


Dominant Introverted Intuition [Ni]: Chris is singularly focused on preventing Wyatt from becoming evil in order to save the world from him. He is so caught up in his mission that he often fails to think of anything else, often overworking the sisters in order to reach his goal. He doesn’t stop to consider their feelings, their needs, or their desires, because he sees the big picture and will stop at nothing. We need to make preemptive strikes to prevent that future from happening, otherwise we’re all doomed! Chris is extremely conscious of how anything he says or does can potentially impact the future, and always exercises caution about what he reveals to Piper, Phoebe, Paige, and Leo. He initially allows them all to think that his reason for coming back to the past is to save Wyatt… but he fails to mention that what he’s saving him from is becoming evil, because if he said that, they wouldn’t believe him, and they certainly wouldn’t help him. He only tells them the truth when he has no other choice but to come clean with them. He doesn’t reveal that he’s actually Piper and Leo’s son because he is aware that doing so could lead to serious consequences, and doesn’t fess up about his actual identity until Phoebe asks him point blank. He understands how events can unfold and often uses that foreknowledge to his advantage. When he and the sisters find themselves saddled with a demonic baby, Chris immediately wants to vanquish it. Piper, Phoebe, and Paige see an innocent child, but Chris sees what it’s going to become. You can’t see it for what it is now, you have to look at what it’s going to be when it grows up! You can’t let it live!

Auxiliary Extroverted Thinking [Te]: For Chris, it’s all business, all the time. He has no patience when the girls get distracted. You need to be taking this seriously. Ugh Fine, maybe we can talk about taking a little break after you’ve killed three more demons. Chris likes to keep everyone on target and wants Piper, Phoebe, and Paige to stay focused on the task at hand. There isn’t time for distractions! Chris is good at organizing his environment, as well as the people in it, in order to achieve something. He is often the one who develops plans of attack, which he expects them to follow exactly as he commands. Chris is always thinking about what he wants to accomplish, and what he needs the Charmed Ones to do in order to see his plans executed in the way he envisions them, and doesn’t typically allow emotions to influence his decisions. Chris gets annoyed when the sisters allow their emotions to keep them from doing what needs to be done and tells them flat out to get over it and move on. There are more important things to be concerned with! The facts of the situation are important to Chris and he often has trouble seeing around them. When Paige insists on going to find Leo where the crystal pointed to, Chris tries to talk her out of it. It’s pointing to the middle of the Indian Ocean, Paige! You can’t orb there! However Paige believes that something must be there and goes anyway. Chris tends to go for the simple, straightforward solution to problems rather than thinking of creative solutions. In his mind, the only way to stop the baby from growing up to become a demonic killer is to just vanquish it now before it has the chance to do any damage as an adult. When his conception date draws near and he comes into contact with a Genie, he believes the logical thing to do is just wish for Piper and Leo to have sex.

Tertiary Introverted Feeling [Fi]: It is Chris’s ability to put his plan above all else that leads him to carry weight of the truth about the future by himself. For a very long time, he refrains from telling his own mother about her untimely demise. He internalizes a lot of his negative feelings instead of discussing them openly. Although he doesn’t talk about his emotions, he does tend to act on the anger and resentment that he feels, particularly towards Leo. When Chris is faced with a moral decision, he looks at the future implications first and foremost (Ni-Fi). He has no qualms about killing if it’s to stop Wyatt from becoming evil, because it’s for the greater good. Chris tends to see things as being black and white. The baby has to die in order to spare potential future victims! It doesn’t matter that it’s just a child! It’s a demons. Demons are evil. Therefore, it needs to die. Case closed. You can’t be sentimental about this! Chris has trouble empathizing and dealing with the girls when they become emotional about anything. He can’t relate, because everything he does is in service of a better future, so he lacks the time or patience for such trivial problems

Inferior Extroverted Sensing [Se]: It’s impossible for Chris to relax and live in the moment. When the girls try to get him to take a load off, he refuses to, because he has a job to do. He’s not here to enjoy himself, he has a purpose. There’s no time for sensory pleasure or fun. He doesn’t want to loosen up or let the sisters enjoy their lives because there’s work to be done. You need to concentrate on saving Wyatt! Stay focused, guys! Sometimes, Chris is able to improvise in the moment when necessary. On rare occasions (particularly when under stress), Chris can behave recklessly without regard for the potential consequences. Although Chris spends a lot of time coming up with plans and strategies, he sometimes just wants to charge in guns blazing and get things done (Te-Se). “I don’t understand. Why don’t we just storm the place and find her? It’s not like we don’t know where she is.” Every now and then, Chris is able to lighten up and live a little, such as engaging in highly inappropriate sexual relations with his newly assigned charge.

Note: Though I haven’t seen many typings for Chris, the few that I have seen typically type him as an ISFP. When I typed him based on memory, I thought that would be my typing for him as well, but I went back and watched many of his scenes again, and there’s just no way. All the functions are there, but Ni and Te are definitely running the show.


Enneagram: 6w5 1w2 3w2 Sp/So


Prue Halliwell (Charmed): ESTJ


Dominant Extroverted Thinking [Te]: One of Prue’s trademark characteristics is her bossiness. She tends to be overly critical and domineering. Prue is good at giving orders to other people and can be a control freak. As a teenager, she was student body president and the head cheerleader. Prue needs facts and proof in order to believe something. It was harder for her to accept the existence of the supernatural than it was for her sisters, and only truly believed when she unintentionally used her power. She is blunt, direct, and knows how to take charge. Prue effortlessly slips into the leadership role and lays down rules for others to follow. She is practical, focused, organized, logical, and often clashes with Phoebe, who is more free-spirited and aimless. It’s nearly impossible for Prue to understand Phoebe’s lack of direction. Prue is extremely logical and typically follows her head instead of her heart. She doesn’t shy away from confrontation and doesn’t usually sugarcoat it when she has something unpleasant to say.

Auxiliary Introverted Sensing [Si]: Prue has difficulty letting go of the past. Water is her biggest fear because her mother drowned. She can’t say “I love you” to her sisters, because that was the last thing she ever said to their mom before she died. Prue’s past experiences shape all of her present feelings. Because she has such strong ties to her past, she tends to hold grudges for a very long time. She’s the least willing to give her dad a second chance when he attempts to be a part of their lives again. She doesn’t want anything to do with Phoebe because she mistakenly believes that Phoebe made a move on her ex-fiancé. And Prue never really trusts Cole again after learning that he was Balthazar, regardless of how many times he saves them or fights alongside them. Prue has a very good memory and is very detail-oriented. She is extremely responsible, even sacrificing her own childhood to help raise her two younger sisters. When Andy dies, Prue blames herself and has a hard time letting go. After his death, she never has a serious relationship again. Prue tends to be conservative, cautious, and dislikes surprises. The majority of Prue’s adult life was spent working in places that have strong ties to the past. When we first meet her, she is working at the Museum of Natural History. Then, she goes on to spend a year and a half identifying and authenticating various antiques at Buckland Auction House.

Tertiary Extroverted Intuition [Ne]: It’s easy for Prue to list all of the ways something might go wrong, which is a contrast from Phoebe, who tends to be more optimistic. Prue doesn’t think up possibilities as a way to entertain herself. If she’s coming up with ideas, it’s because her Te is requiring it. When there’s a problem, she can think about it and come up with connections. Eventually, Prue gets to a place where she is sick of her job at the auction house and spontaneously decides to quit and follow her former dream of becoming a photojournalist. Prue is usually good at thinking of a quick lie on the spot to cover for her being a witch.

Inferior Introverted Feeling [Fi]: It’s not easy for Prue to express her emotions. She cares about her sisters deeply, but has trouble putting her feelings into words. As previously mentioned, Prue is unable to tell her sisters that she loves them because of her painful past (Si-Fi). She has a firm sense of right and wrong, and is typically the one to enforce moral rules for the sisters to follow (Fi-Te). Of the three, Prue is usually the strictest about not using their powers for personal gain (though, when desperate, she breaks her own rule). Prue tends to internalize a lot of her feelings instead of dealing with them. She blames herself for Andy’s death, which manifests as her losing faith in her powers and wanting to get rid of them. She carries a lot of guilt for hurting Phoebe in a car accident when they were younger and holds onto that for many years (Si-Fi). Prue enjoys helping innocents and fighting evil. Being a force for good is an important part of her personal identity. She tends to see things as black and white. Death is the “ultimate evil” to her and she is hostile towards him when they meet, but, in reality, Death is an inevitability, and not good or bad.

Enneagram: 1w2 Sx/Sp

Quotes:

Prue: He’s dead, Phoebe.
Phoebe: No, he moved from New York, but he’s very much alive.
Prue: He isn’t to me. He died the day he moved out.
Phoebe: What are you talking about? He’s always been a major button-pusher for you. You’re mad he’s alive, you’re mad that I tried to find him, and you’re mad that I moved back. Dad, Dad, Dad, Dad, Dad, Dad, Dad. (several shelves collapse, and Prue and Phoebe burst out laughing)

Prue: Our powers are not toys.

Victor: Always in a hurry, Prue. You skipped crawling and went straight to walking.
Prue: Oh, we’re sharing memories. Well, I’ve got one of my own – your back walking out the door.

Phoebe: Hey, I have an idea. Why don’t we throw a party and charge admission. It’s a great way to make extra cash.
Prue: Hey, I have an even better idea. Why don’t you just get a job?

Prue: Seasons change, people don’t…
Phoebe: I changed. Do you remember what you thought of me before I walked back through that door?
Prue: That’s different.
Phoebe: How is that different?
Prue: You’re my sister.

Phoebe: We can’t find anything about revearsing the Wendigo thing.
Prue: Well, there’s got to be something. Oh, didn’t you check this at the bottom of the page? “c.f. Desiderata.”
Phoebe: Yeah, like we’re supposed to know what that means.
Prue: Well, it means “conferred desiderata.” It’s Latin for “look up things that are yearned for.”
Piper: Yeah, yeah, yeah. You’re so very smart.

Phoebe: Well, if you can’t teach the dog new tricks, how about the owner? Just think on the money we’ll save on carpet cleaning alone.
Prue: Phoebe, we can’t use our magic just to teach him or anybody else a lesson.

Prue: Piper, just help me look for it.
Piper: Okay, relax, we’ll find it.
Prue: You don’t know that! I mean, what if it’s lost? What if we can’t find it? Then we’re stuck in our future bodies, with no way of getting out of them, and no way of saving Phoebe!

Prue: I have no one to say goodbye to. My life…they didn’t even know who you were at the office, my own sister. If we die tonight, my tombstone will read “Here lies Prue, she worked hard.”

Prue: Well, the house is a mess again. I mean, how come we can’t fight the demon of cleanliness, or the demon of housekeeping, or even that bald Mr. Clean guy. I would so totally take him on.

Leo: We’ll help you out.
Prue: No, no, no. I’ll hit the book alone. Your guys couple issues are really starting to hurt my head.
Piper: Wait, we have couple issues?
Prue: Resentment. Denial. Be nice!

Prue: Phoebe? Phoebe! Hi. I hate to interrupt your whole “staring off into space aimlessly” thing that you’ve got going on right now, but in case you forgot, evil Triad agent.
Phoebe: Like you would ever let me forget, Prue.

Prue: Listen, here’s the deal. Balthazar killed the Triad, now the Source wants him dead. Krell is trying to suck up to the Source, so he wants to kill Balthazar.

Prue: I know somebody who can see anything.
Phoebe: Oh, no. Wait a minute. You tiptoe around the subject of Mom, you deny looking like her, you can’t even go to the end of that dock because you’re afraid to walk in her footsteps and now you want me to relive her last moments? How is that fair?
Prue: It’s not. None of this is. Mom’s death, Sam’s guilt. But I’m asking you to help me end it.

Prue: I don’t obsess. I think… intensely… anyway, I can’t really help it. I mean, we’ve seen so many bizarre things, why not a man in a painting?

Prue: Come on, why do you even care what those people think?
Piper: Only a former cheerleader could ask that question.

Prue: You know, if this doesn’t work I can look back and pinpoint the exact moment where it all went wrong.
Piper: And that moment’s name would be Dad? Prue, you gotta admit if he can open the door we kinda need him.
Prue: It’s all about word choice Piper, we don’t need him, we need his utter lack of power. Right? He opens the door, we save the day, we get on with our lives. It’s a one time group effort.
Piper: Glad to see you have a healthy handle on the situation, Prue.
Prue: I think I do!

Prue: You don’t know me, you don’t know anything about me.
Death: But I’ve seen it so many times before. The anger, the pain. You lock up your tears and angrily steel yourself against me as if I was the ultimate evil.

Prue: Alright, I am going to win this fight and save your ass. That way I can kick it myself later.

Prue: Listen, I shot a magazine cover yesterday, I had a date last night and this morning I’m searching for evil. You can’t get more balanced than that.

Piper: Ahh, what happened?
Leo: You almost dead, that’s what happened.
Piper: Yeah, what else is new?
Prue: Oh, where’s Shax?
Phoebe: I tried to use the vanquishing spell on him. But I think I just wounded him, he turned into the wind.
Prue: Maybe the spell needs more than one witch for full effect. Ah, OK, come on.
Piper: Come on, come on, where?
Prue: Let’s go find him. So we can finish it off while he still hurt. Look, you just stay here with Griffiths, alright? If Shax comes back, say the spell to fend him off. OK, come on.

Prue: Oh my god.. and she’s been acting really.. and she left without saying.. and and the bottle, she wanted to destroy it.
Phoebe: I’m trying to jump on your thought train but you’re moving a little too fast for me here.

Prue: I don’t get it. I have checked everything. There’s no reason why the chandelier should not be working.
Piper: We’ve been talking about what to do with that spare room. I think you’re right, we do need a roommate.
Prue: Well we could rent out a room at a reduced rate in exchange to help around the house.

Piper: Well, maybe this is our destiny, maybe it’s just not meant to be.
Leo: You don’t believe that.
Piper: Don’t I?
Prue: I don’t. I mean, look, this whole year has just been a series of tests, right? To see what we’re made of. Well, maybe this is one more test. Which means we can’t give up, alright? So while the Elders are figuring out what we’re supposed to do, we still have work to do, okay?
Piper: Dr. Griffiths?
Prue: Yeah, if we don’t catch him before he gets out of surgery, Shax will. (to Leo) Unless you know something we don’t?
Leo: No, you’re right, your powers aren’t enough to vanquish him. You’ll need the three of you to say the spell.
Prue: Yeah, well, we only have two of us. Don’t ask, just orb us to the hospital, okay?
Leo: I can’t. The Elders won’t let me. They don’t wanna risk exposing Whitelighters too.
(Darryl comes back in)
Piper: Cowards!
Prue: Fine, we’ll just save him without your guys help. Let’s go.
Darryl: Whoa, Prue, Prue. Even if you can save your innocent, that still doesn’t save yourselves.
Prue: Yeah, I know that, Darryl, but first things first, alright? Try and buy us as much time as possible with your captain as you can. (to Leo) And you, why don’t you get back up there and White light a fire underneath your bosses butts.

Piper Halliwell (Charmed): ISFJ


Dominant Introverted Sensing [Si]: Piper just wants to be normal. She doesn’t want to be a witch. Piper wants to go to work everyday, find love, and have kids. She doesn’t seek out adventure or the extraordinary. She’s perfectly happy to live a regular life. When Piper discovers that she’s a witch, she begins to wonder if that means she’s bad. Witches are depicted as evil and she is afraid to enter a church. She is very responsible and practical. Before she takes a leap and pursues what she really wants, Piper works at a bank, forgoing her dream job because it pays more and the family needs the money. Piper is hardworking, pays attention to detail, and likes for things to be neat and orderly. She believes that past events are a direct indicator for the future. She has doubts about marrying Leo because of how her mom and dad’s marriage ended and, for a period of time, believes that relationships in the Halliwell family are doomed. Her prior experience is the biggest factor in forming judgments about future events. Piper can become frustrated when reliable, established methods of doing something fail her. She gets upset when the Book of Shadows doesn’t have the answers she’s looking for because the book “never lets us down.”

Auxiliary Extroverted Feeling [Fe]: Out of the Halliwell sisters, Piper is the most nurturing. She has a keen maternal instinct and can easily empathize with other people due to her warm disposition. She’s kind, caring, and the “best little helper” Grams has. Though Piper doesn’t like demons intruding on her life, she does enjoy helping others and being a force for good. She likes that she makes the world a better, safer place. Growing up as a middle child, Piper is also quite good at mediating and was always the one who kept Prue and Phoebe from going at it. She likes for things to be harmonious and wants to keep the peace between her sisters, often getting upset when they’re at each other’s throats. Prior to Prue’s death, she was the glue that held the Halliwell sisters together. As she matures, Piper has an easier time dealing with conflict and becomes more confident and assertive.

Tertiary Introverted Thinking [Ti]: Sometimes, Piper tends to criticize herself as well as the people close to her. She likes when things run smoothly and strives for efficiency. Piper can be quite analytical and her Ti often serves her higher functions. When Prue dies, Piper tries a bunch of different spells and rituals to bring her back. She gets frustrated when she can’t find answers. “It’s like the book just deserted us and deserted Prue and I don’t understand why.” She picks up on mistakes in rationale and will point them out when necessary. Piper can become extremely stubborn when her logic leads her to a solution that she believes is the best option and can shut down other people’s opinions on the matter.

Inferior Extroverted Intuition [Ne]: Piper is always aware of the ways something might go wrong. She can be quite cynical and anxious when thinking about how things might turn out, and can come up with every possible negative outcome. She’s extremely cautious and doesn’t particularly enjoy the unknown. Piper isn’t as good as improvising on the spot as her sisters. When the sisters need to come up with lies to cover their witchy ways, the others can come up with one much faster and easier than Piper can. Her sisters are also much quicker at coming to conclusions based on bits of information than Piper, who tends to struggle when it comes to following their thought process.

Enneagram: 6w5 Sp/So (As for Piper’s tritype, she’s definitely 62X, but the third number is tricky. Her gut type is definitely either 1 or 9. She had more 9 characteristics prior to Prue’s death, and more 1 qualities from then on.

Quotes:

Piper: All I have to do is look at you and dad to see where I might end up if I marry Leo. I mean, look at the track record. The Halliwells, we are blessed as witches and we are cursed as women. Sometimes I think we’re all destined to end up alone.

Phoebe: I never touched Roger.
Prue: Whoa!
Phoebe: I know you think otherwise, because that’s what that Armani- wearing, Chardonnay-slugging trust-funder told you. But…
Piper: Hey! I have a great idea. Why don’t I make a fabulous reunion dinner?
Prue: I’m not hungry!
Phoebe: I ate on the bus.
Piper: Okay. We’ll try the group hug later!

Phoebe: Stevie said all we had to do was to connect. Well here’s the connection.
[points to Kit’s collar]
Piper: Kit’s collar?
Phoebe: No! The triquetra.

Piper: You can never be too rich or too safe.

Piper: You know, I don’t wanna be one of those old married leapers that nobody thinks is fun anymore.
Prue: You’ve never been fun, Piper.
Piper: I’ve always been fun, Prue. I am just Mrs. Fun now.
Prue: Oh, Mrs. Fun.

Piper: I bet you guys think this is real funny don’t ya? Haven’t you taken enough from me? You have to send trolls to kick me while I’m down. I had a nice normal life once and you took that from me. You took my boyfriend, you took my life, the least you could do is leave me my freakin’ car keys. I am a good person, I am a good witch and damn it I would’ve made a great wife. And how dare you take that from me. I deserve… no, you know what? I demand that you send him back to me. You hear me? Right now. I am going to stand in this very spot until you send Leo back to me.

Piper: I thought I was going to die last night. I was totally helpless, and all I could think about was that I was never going to see you guys again. And then suddenly out of nowhere comes Billy. Saved me. Protected me. That thing took away the person he loved, and he’s out there all alone trying to kill it. I can’t just do nothing.

Phoebe: [as Piper is flipping through the Book of Shadows] I’m telling you, there’s no Dream Sorcerer stuff anywhere.
Piper: That’s impossible. The Book of Shadows has never let us down.

Piper: I know this may not sound very P.C., but I want romance. Long, slow kisses, late-night talks, candle lights. I love love. I’d take what Prue has in a flat second.

Phoebe: You want a man who is single, smart, endowed?
Piper: Employed.
Phoebe: Oh, sorry, employed. A man who loves sleeping in on Sunday, sunset bike rides, cuddling by a roaring fire, and late-night talks. A man who loves love as much as you do. Wow. You’re a romantic.

Prue: Don’t worry. We’ll be safe here.
Piper: Don’t say that. In horror movies, the people that say that are always the next to die.

Piper: The gas man said that’s where Phoebe was. And we know she’s been down there.
Prue: No, Piper, it was just a story.
Piper: Are you so sure? We’ve seen monsters and demons from the past and future. How can you be so sure that Phoebe’s childhood monster isn’t real?

Piper: This is gonna sound really weird, but we’re actually your…
Prue: Cousins. From out of town.
Piper: Right. Cousins. And we, uh, we need to tell you something really important about the baby that you’re carrying, sort of.

Phoebe: Piper, listen to me. You are the most sweetest, most caring person I’ve ever met. No, I mean that, you are. You’re always there to help anybody, even strangers. You’ve been doing it your whole life.

Piper: There’s other magic, magic that we’ve used before. It’s like the book just deserted us and deserted Prue, and I don’t understand why.
Phoebe: We lost our sister. How can we ever understand that? We have tried every magical way to bring her back. But we can’t. She’s gone. I just thank God that I didn’t lose you too. Now, we have to get some rest, Prue will never forgive us if we look bad at her funeral.
