Shawn Hunter (Boy Meets World): ISFP


Dominant Introverted Feeling [Fi]: Shawn’s feelings are intense and private. He doesn’t typically open up to other people, and instead acts on his emotions instead of talking them out with his friends. When he realizes that Cory has applied to Stanford, he “breaks up” with him as a defense mechanism. He leaves Cory before Cory can leave him. He feels that when high school is over, they’ll have no choice but to go their separate ways, and so he acts on these feelings by shutting Cory out and making new friends. While Shawn isn’t great at verbalizing his feelings, he is able to get them out by writing about them, and is proven to have a flair for poetry. Shawn usually does what he feels is right for himself, regardless of what others want from him or expect of him. Shawn is very good at interpreting situations and understanding people’s true intentions, but even though he’s able to accurately assess people’s motivations, he often impetuously goes along with them anyway, even when he knows better. He knows that the men from Cory’s job at the restaurant are in the mob and warns Cory, yet he takes Cory’s place when he quits because he’s desperate for money. He instantly realizes that the residents of The Center are members of a cult, but he joins them anyway because he wants to be part of something bigger than himself, where people don’t judge one another. He feels accepted for who he is there, which is very important to him. Shawn is willing to fight for what he believes in and doesn’t back down simply to keep the peace. He does whatever he feels is the right thing, though sometimes it takes him time to decide for certain what that is.

Auxiliary Extroverted Sensing [Se]: One of Shawn’s trademark characteristics is his impulsiveness. He often acts without thinking things through and lands himself in trouble. He blows up a mailbox with a cherry bomb and decides to hide out at Cory’s because he’s afraid to go home to his parents. Although is obviously only a short-term solution that can’t work forever, Shawn has trouble seeing further than the present moment. He steals Jonathan’s motorcycle, even though he’s underage and doesn’t have a license in order to go looking for his father, and ends up getting caught by the police. Shawn is very fond of physical beauty. He enjoys meeting women and going on dates without actually making a commitment, and tends to get bored and move on quickly. He has a talent for photography, and nearly decides against going to college in order to pursue it. Shawn is typically more concerned with enjoying the moment than with being responsible and working hard. He doesn’t take the work study program seriously and goofs off, which irks Cory, who wants to excel. Shawn is good at seeing opportunities in his environment and using what is available to him to his advantage. When Mr. Feeny assigns them a project where they must invent a business and write a report, Shawn decides to turn Feeny’s house into a bed and breakfast while he’s away and has actual guests stay at his home. Shawn has a tendency to see things as they are and remains quite practical about life, whereas Cory tends to be more idealistic and hopeful. Shawn understands that there’s a good chance he won’t get into college and will have to find full-time employment, even though Cory refuses to accept that.

Tertiary Introverted Intuition [Ni]: Although he doesn’t spend much time concerning himself with the future, there are moments where Shawn begins to panic about it and responds by acting rashly. When he realizes that Cory might end up at a college on the other side of the country, he cuts him out his life to spare himself the pain. On another occasion, Shawn tries to sever ties with Cory because they’re completely different people from polar opposite backgrounds. Shawn is from a family of criminals and degenerates and he’s sure that there’s no bright future in store for him. He becomes pessimistic about where he’ll end up, and decides he and Cory are not suited for one another. Shawn’s outlook on the long-term future is normally very negative, and he sometimes sabotages himself because he has difficulty believing in himself. Sometimes, Shawn can be extremely goal-oriented and can have tunnel vision. For instance, when Mr. Feeny assigns him to acquire tickets to the Superbowl or fail, Shawn doesn’t stop until he gets the tickets, telling Cory that doing so was the only thing that mattered and he was going to get there no matter what. He also becomes obsessed with helping Cory and Topanga get back together, because their love was symbolic of hope and without it, he had nothing to depend on, and he tried everything he could think of to help them reconnect. Shawn often displays a keen awareness when it comes to people and situations (Fi-Ni), and has the ability to accurately figure out what’s happening with little to no prior information. He often seems to immediately know what’s really going on with his friends or in a particular situation.

Inferior Extroverted Thinking [Te]: Shawn doesn’t really know what his place is in society or in the world. He doesn’t think that he’s cut out to be a successful, productive member of society. Shawn doesn’t like to be controlled and tends to get defensive and rebel when other people try to tell him what to do. He doesn’t want to follow the rules or go along with conventional norms. He wants to be his own person and resents being told what to do with his own life. Maybe college isn’t for him! It’s not for everyone, you know. When Shawn sets his mind to something, he often has a good head for business, as evidenced in his project for Feeny’s class. He was able to run a successful bed and breakfast. He advertised at the airport and was able to think of telling the cab driver to lie to potential customers about the hotels being booked. Shawn also did very well in his work study program. He rose quickly through the ranks and fit in well at the advertising company, where he was asked to pitch ideas which managed to impress one of the firm’s top executives.

Liam Booker (Faking It): ISFP


Dominant Introverted Feeling [Fi]: Liam has very strong morals and is first and foremost concerned with doing the “right” thing. His conscience rules him, and if he does anything that contradicts his internal values, he obsesses over it until he’s able to correct his perceived shortcoming. Liam takes a stand for what he believes in. He is socially, economically, and environmentally aware, and wants the way he lives to reflect his principles. He’s opposed to lying and sneaking around, which makes his relationship with Karma difficult for him because he’s under the impression that Karma is dating Amy. He doesn’t want to get in the way of their relationship, and even though he cares about Karma, he feels that getting in the middle of their relationship is wrong. That’s just not who he is. Liam values honesty and hates that Amy is forcing him to keep their secret from Karma. He just wants to fess up, tell her the truth, and deal with the consequences. He can’t live with the guilt. Liam believes in punishing himself when he breaks his moral code and vows to abstain from sex after sleeping with Amy. He doesn’t like to openly discuss how he’s feeling, and prefers to do something to fix things rather than talk about it. Liam is very loyal to the people he loves and gives up his dream to get Karma and her family out of jail. He doesn’t tell her about this, though, because he didn’t do it to gain favor with her. He wants to earn her forgiveness and had no intention of using his good deed to sway her. He’s outraged when Karma considers taking the $250,000 check Mr. Booker wrote her to keep her away from Liam. He turned Zita down after she threw herself at him while Karma was contemplating accepting the bribe money, which hurts even more, because he knows she wouldn’t consider it for a single second if the money was given to her to stay away from Amy.

Auxiliary Extroverted Sensing [Se]: Sometimes, Liam makes shortsighted decisions in the heat of the moment and often comes to regret them after having time to reflect. He keeps seeing Karma, even though he’s against being with her behind Amy’s back. When he’s angry or upset, he tends to react without considering the ramifications. After his breakup with Karma, he learns that she had faked her relationship with Amy. In his outrage over being lied to for so long, he sleeps Amy and becomes immediately remorseful of his actions following the incident. Liam enjoys sensory pleasures, particularly sex, and is a talented artist. He expresses himself by creating, and is very good at translating his feelings into the works he produces (Fi-Se). Liam tends to work through his feelings physically – whether it’s by producing art or going to a mixed martial arts class with Theo.

Tertiary Introverted Intuition [Ni]: If Liam gets a hunch about something, he usually believes in it, fully committing to the idea, even if he’s completely mistaken. When Jackson Lee takes a special interest in him and his art, Liam is convinced that Jackson is his real father. He begins investigating to confirm his suspicions, and believes that he found “evidence” to prove it (his mother in the same photo as Jackson). However, it never occurs to him that it’s just a coincidence and his theory turns out to be incorrect. When Liam has a goal in mind, he can become singularly focused on achieving it, particularly if it’s something that is important to him morally.

Inferior Extroverted Thinking [Te]: When Liam believes in something, he does something about it. He organizes protests and inspires others to rally around him and fight back. When in protest mode, Liam is able to take charge, make decisions, and shout commands to the crowd. He doesn’t like when things are done for money, power, or control, which is why he refuses to drive a fancy car or buy expensive clothing, even though he comes from a rich family. He doesn’t like what money has done to them and rebels against that lifestyle. Liam is very upfront and lays down rules when need be – he tells Brandi upfront that their relationship must be casual sex or nothing. He’s not looking for a girlfriend, and if she can’t handle that, they have to stop hooking up. He knows what he wants, and has no problem speaking up.

Enneagram: 1w9 4w3 7w8 Sx/So

Quotes:

Brandi: Where have you been, Pooh Bear? Who’s this bitch?
Liam: Whoa, Brandi, you’re drunk.
Brandi: He’s mine, so keep those nipples to yourself.
Karma: That was my goal from the beginning, I promise.
Liam: Look, I am not your boyfriend. We’re just good friends who occasionally have sex, but if that’s too confusing for you, then we have to stop. [to Karma] What?
Karma: Nothing.
Liam: Look, I’m not a douche bag, all right? I’m always clear about my ground rules. And girls, they always agree to them, and then they get-
Karma: Clingy? Women are genetically wired to mate and start a family. In fact, if we weren’t, our entire species would’ve died out, so have some respect.

Shane: They’re here, they’re queer, they need your votes. Nice work, minions.
Liam: Anything to help the gays.

Karma: Liam’s parents are rich, but he drives a beat-up biodiesel, which means he’s socially aware. His best friends are a gay guy and a feminist, which means he’s tolerant and accepting of strong women. And he’s an artist, which means that deep down inside he’s wounded.

Liam: I’m glad you got back together with your girlfriend. You two are like the school’s Portia and Ellen.
Karma: Which one am I? Please say Portia.
Liam: Trust me, you’re the Portia. Which is why we probably shouldn’t make out again. I don’t want to be the asshole that breaks up Hester’s cutest couple.

Liam: We can see through your lies! She’s just trying to buy us!
Robin: Trust me, no one is trying to buy you. Though you’ll each be getting new Skwerkel smartphones and tablets.
Liam: What do you get out of this?
Robin: The satisfaction of helping a school in desperate need of money. Also, Skwerkel will own all data collected on these devices.
Karma: That means our photos, our emails, our text messages. They want to make us their digital slaves. Are we gonna let them?
Crowd: Hell, no!
Liam: Time to occupy Hester. Man your stations!

Liam: Money has made my family secretive, image-obsessed ass. I want nothing to do with it or them.

Liam: Look, maybe you two are okay with this sneaking around thing, but I’m not. I tried to be, but it’s just not who I am.

Liam: They’re right. I knew Karma had a girlfriend, but I kept seeing her.
Shane: Why are you beating yourself up like this? It’s not your fault they broke up.

Liam: Six months? That’s forever.
Karma: I know, I’m sorry. But if people at school think I left Amy for you, they’ll hate us more than oil companies.
Liam: And Amy is okay with this? I just, I really don’t like lying.

Amy: This is kidnapping.
Shane: It’s really more blackmail.
Lauren: We’re going to take photos of this assjolr that are so shocking and deviant, he’ll never tell anyone my secret.
Shane: Conveniently, my mom sells sex toys out of the trunk of her car.
Amy: Guys, guys, this is illegal and highly disturbing. Lauren, how bad could this secret be?
Lauren: Ugh, I’m not telling you my fucking secret.
Shane: She’s not. Trust me, I tried.
Liam: Guys, I’m with Amy. Maybe it’s a good thing this thing gets out. They say you’re only as sick as your secrets.
Amy: What? No, who says that? Who, the voices in your head? Tell ’em to shut up. I changed my mind. I’m on board. This is America. We are all entitled to our secrets. Will you excuse us for a second? What the hell was that? “You’re only as sick as your secrets”? I’m sorry, but the guilt is killing me.
Amy: Oh, this little piggy went boo-hoo-hoo all the way home. Man up. Look, it’s killing me too, but what would it do to Karma if she found out that her soul mate slept with you?
Liam: So what, we just pretend it never happened?
Amy: What happened? See how easy that was? And before we never speak of this again, do I need to add contracting syphilis to last night’s list of tragic events?

Shane: You’re still hung up on Karma, aren’t you? I don’t get it. Are her lips dusted with cocaine or something?
Liam: No, this is not about Karma, and I’m only hung up on her because Little Liam wanted to meet a lesbian, so he needs to be put in time-out.
Shane: Why are you punishing your penis? Hey, Karma is the one who lied.
Liam: Trust me, I deserve to be punished.
Shane: No, you deserve to move on, and the best way to get over someone is to get under someone new, stat. Unless you don’t want to get over her.
Liam: Of course I want to get over her. I just think celibacy is the best way to do that.
Shane: I don’t know. In my experience, it only leads to blue balls and long, incoherent speeches about wolves.

Amy: This is your last chance. Promise me you won’t tell Karma or I’m about to make a scene so juicy I might win a daytime Emmy.
Liam: What if I tell her I slept with someone and I don’t say that someone was you?
Amy: Not a negotiation, last chance.
Liam: Wow, you’re completely mental. This is what secrets do to people.
Amy: Three, two –
Liam: You wouldn’t dare ’cause then you’d have no leverage.
Amy: [hits Liam in the face] How dare you? That was one.
Liam: Amy, come on.
Amy: Don’t touch me!
Liam: Amy.
Amy: Do you know where I met Liam? At a protest. And do you know what we were protesting? Skwerkel.
Mr. Booker: Liam.
Amy: But it turns out, he was just seducing me. He never told me his father founded the company. Who are you, Liam Booker?
Liam: That’s hilarious. Amy has been taking improv classes, and she’s getting very good.
Amy: And if that weren’t enough of a betrayal, I also found out that he slept with my best friend.

Liam: I cannot believe – Did I just really say all of that out loud?
Amy: You did. And your family…
Liam: Probably disowned me, but right now, I do not give a fuck. I have a huge weight off my back.
Amy: Now I get why you’re so hung up on honesty.
Liam: Yeah, well a few years ago I accidentally found my original birth certificate and my whole world cracked. It weighed me down ever since. I wish somehow I could un-know it, but, I can’t. I don’t want to tell Karma something she can’t un-know, I care about her way too much.
Amy: That’s just how I feel, thank you.

Shane: Quit taking it out on these innocent art supplies.
Liam: Shane, really, I don’t want to talk about it.
Shane: That’s just your straight guy resistance to talking about your feelings. Push through it.
Theo: What are y’all on about?
Shane: It’s Karma’s birthday, and Liam can’t be with her for reasons too complicated and fucked up to specify.
Theo: Wanna go hit stuff? Always makes me feel better. I’m taking this mixed martial arts class downtown.
Shane: Nice try, Theo, but what Liam needs is to talk it all out over some grilled cheeses at Millie’s Diner.
Theo: What is this, The View?
Liam: Shane, I’m sorry, but that class is just what the doctor ordered.
Shane: You’re not the doctor. You’re the patient. You can’t prescribe your own medicine.
Theo: Wow, you really think you know what’s best for everybody, don’t you?
Shane: It’s a gift.
Liam: We’ll talk it out later, I promise. But right now, I just want to punch someone in the face without getting arrested. You wanna come?
Shane: I’ll pass. It all sounds a bit too aggressively heterosexual for me.

Karma: If she can’t handle our relationship, then maybe it’s not meant to be. Do you want some dessert? They have homemade doughnuts.
Liam: She doesn’t want doughnuts. She wants Reagan.
Karma: Amy loves doughnuts.
Liam: Karma, we get it. You know all of Amy’s favorite foods, but can’t you see that she’s really into Reagan? You can fix this, but you’ve gotta go and stop her.
Amy: You’re right.
Liam: No, Karma. Karma, this isn’t about you. You need to give them space.

Karma: You gave up art for me?
Liam: Zita told you?
Karma: The real question is why you didn’t.
Liam: Because I didn’t do it to buy your forgiveness. I want to earn that. But do you think I ever will?
Karma: Look, I want to forgive you. You’re doing all the right things. I’m just scared of getting hurt again, which is why I need to be in control.
Liam: I’m okay with that.
Karma: Then put your hands behind your back.

Shane: Grr! Young Jackson Lee was cute.
Liam: And that’s Robin in the same picture. That’s proof! Shane, he’s my dad!
Shane: I don’t know. I’ve been in plenty of pictures with people I haven’t impregnated.
Liam: No, it all makes so much sense now! Being an artist is in my blood, and now my dad has come back to build some kind of relationship with me. I’ve dreamt about this moment.
Shane: Liam-
Liam: Shh! When I dreamt about it, there was no talking.

Amy: Who wouldn’t consider taking $250,000?
Liam: I’ve been such an idiot.
Karma: It could help my parents get back on their feet, help pay for college. How could I not consider it for even a second?
Liam: After you left L.A., Zita kissed me. She made it very clear she wanted more, but I turned her down. It didn’t take me a week to think about it.
Karma: Oh, yeah, well, too bad you didn’t think before you slept with Amy.
Amy: Karma, please leave me out of this.
Liam: Here we go again. You’re taking a bribe to stay away from me, but I’m the one defending myself?
Karma: I’m not rich, Liam! I didn’t fall asleep in class because I’ve been studying. I’ve been working every catering gig I could get. And I live in a freaking juice truck!
Liam: It’s so besides the point, it’s not even funny. If you were offered that money to stay away from Amy, you wouldn’t have considered it for one second!

Principal Turner: These are all of the school’s known visual artists. One of them has to be “B.” All right, you Banksy wannabes. You’ve had your fun. Now if someone doesn’t admit to being “B,” you will all be suspended. And yes, I can do that. Again, read the Terms & Conditions.
Liam: It was me, okay? I am “B.” Now, let everyone else go.
Principal Turner: B for Booker. You know, I think we might just skip right past suspension to full-on expulsion
Penelope: Stop! It wasn’t Liam. It was me. “B” is for Beaver. I mean, Bevier.

Harry Potter (Harry Potter): ISFP


Dominant Introverted Feeling [Fi]: Harry doesn’t typically like to discuss his feelings, and instead keeps them to himself. He believes in doing the right thing, even if he has to put his life on the line to do it. It doesn’t matter much who the person is or how dangerous the situation might be. Even though he doesn’t particularly like Hermione in the beginning, he still puts himself at risk to find her and warn her about the troll. He even saves Draco Malfoy, who has done nothing but torment Harry for years. What other people say or think doesn’t influence Harry’s beliefs. He knows that Voldemort’s back and if his classmates don’t accept that, then that’s their problem. How Harry feels about something is much more vital to predicting his reaction than logic. Harry values freedom and is able to relate to the boa constrictor because they’re both trapped in confined spaces they wish to escape from, and so he inadvertently uses magic to set the snake free. Harry is extremely moralistic – he refuses to befriend Draco Malfoy because he treats Ron poorly and disrespects the Weasley family. He doesn’t care about his status, he just cares about what kind of person he is. Harry is quickly able to tell that Draco is no good and he knows he doesn’t need friends like that. Harry wants to help those around him, but he typically does so by doing something (Fi-Se), rather than offering emotional support (tricking Lucius Malfoy into handing Dobby a sock in order to set the house elf free or buying a bunch of treats on the train to share with Ron). Harry is often shown to be uncomfortable with physical displays of affection and prefers when people don’t make a big deal out of it when he does something nice for them. Harry often struggles with his fame and doesn’t usually enjoy all of the attention he constantly receives. He’s okay with it when he wins a Quidditch match or defeats a dragon, sure. But he doesn’t want recognition for his claim to fame because he was just a baby. He didn’t do anything, and so he feels the way people treat him is undeserved. He wants to earn respect, not have it given to him for something that was out of his own control. Harry’s values come from within – he doesn’t prevent Sirius and Lupin from killing Wormtail because killing is wrong. He stops it because he doesn’t think his father would’ve wanted two of his best friends to become murderers. Harry strongly believes in fairness. When he finds out that the champions will have to face dragons during the first task of the Triwizard Tournament, he passes the intel along to Cedric, believing that Madame Maxime has told Fleur and Karkaroff has informed Krum. He’s very honorable, and even though he ends up having to face the most vicious of the four dragons, he refuses to accept any advice from Ludo Bagman. During the second task, Harry’s task is to rescue Ron, but he can’t just leave Hermione, Gabrielle, and Cho, and so, he waits for the others to arrive to make sure they get back safely. When Fleur doesn’t show up, Harry takes Gabrielle and Ron, even though doing so puts him at a disadvantage in the competition. He couldn’t just leave her down there, regardless of whether or not she was his responsibility. Sometimes Harry’s morality in his undoing. In the third task, he saves Cedric (his competition) and he suggests taking the cup with Cedric, allowing them both to win, a gesture that would ultimately result in Cedric’s death. When Rita Skeeter writes an inaccurate article about Harry, he’s angry because it isn’t true. It’s not a real representation of him. It’s not so much that he’s afraid of how other people will treat him after they read it, but that they will get the wrong idea about who he is. Harry’s sense of self is important to him. He frequently questions his identity and worries that his connection to Voldemort makes him bad. Harry readily stands up for himself and others and doesn’t keep his mouth shut to avoid trouble if he truly believes something is unjust. He lands himself in detention with Umbridge because he refuses to allow her to deny the return of Voldemort. Harry doesn’t like to make a big show of it when he does something kind for someone else. He’d rather they didn’t mention it because he doesn’t do things for the recognition or for gratitude. If he helps someone, it’s because he felt it was the right thing to do – he doesn’t need his good deeds to be broadcast to the world. Harry can deal with the majority of people thinking he’s a liar (or believing him to be untrustworthy) but it only truly gets to him when his friends turn against him (like Ron did after Harry’s name came out of the Goblet of Fire). He’s also deeply hurt when he assumes that Dumbledore isn’t sharing any information with him due to a lack of trust. Even though Harry usually saves those who don’t really deserve his mercy, he allows the centaurs to drag Umbridge with them into the forest after the way she treated him and his classmates throughout the course of the school year because she crossed a line and deserved whatever punishment was in store for her.

Auxiliary Extroverted Sensing [Se]: It’s initially difficult for Harry to accept that he’s a wizard because wizards don’t exist. Even though bizarre things always seem to happen when he’s around, it’s just not possible. Even after witnessing Hagrid perform magic, he wakes up the next day, expecting that it had all just been a dream. The people around Harry often become frustrated with him because of the way he can recklessly throw himself into perilous situations. Harry is athletic and picks up on things quickly. He has a natural talent for flying and makes the Quidditch team in his first year after his very first flying lesson ever, when he’s caught on a broom (which he only did to catch Neville Longbottom’s remembrall). Harry tends to live in the moment and can sometimes fails to think about the possible ramifications of his actions beforehand. He enjoys experiencing new things, and is so excited upon seeing Diagon Alley for the first time that he wishes he had more eyes to be able to see everything at once. Harry’s failure to think of consequences often leads him to dive into things without thinking them through (such as spying on Draco Malfoy, going after the remembrall, sneaking into Hogsmeade when there was an alleged murderer on the loose who supposedly wanted to kill him). Although she was wrong, Hermione was right to be concerned about where the Firebolt came from, but the thought of it being jinxed didn’t cross Harry’s mind. Harry is quick to notice things in his physical environment – when he tries to prevent the Philosopher’s Stone from being stolen with Ron and Hermione, he is able to quickly spot the key that’s different from all of the others, allowing them to enter the next room. Harry is also the one who notices that a piece of paper is balled up in Hermione’s clenched, petrified hand. Harry is good at acting in the moment and has proven himself to be extremely resourceful. After the Basilisk’s fang poisons him, Harry uses it to destroy Riddle’s diary, effectively defeating him. Harry often does things with no real plan – for instance, impulsively leaving the Dursley’s after accidentally inflating Aunt Marge. He didn’t know where he was going to go or what he was going to do… he just gathered his belongings and left. Harry has a tendency to see things as they are and take them at face value. He truly believed that if Fleur didn’t come for Gabrielle, she would just be left there at the bottom of the lake. It never occurs to him that the hostages would be unharmed if a champion were to fail their rescue mission. Although Hermione suspects that the vision Harry has of Sirius is a trap, Harry insists on going to rescue him anyway. When it turns out that she was correct, Harry is forced to deal with the guilt he feels for the part he unwittingly played in Sirius’s demise.

Tertiary Introverted Intuition [Ni]: Sometimes, Harry gets hunches, which he can become quite obsessive over. When his intuition tells him something, he typically sees it through, following it wherever it takes him. Harry knew that Draco Malfoy was a Death Eater. However, sometimes Harry gets very strong gut feelings that turn out to be incorrect – such as believing that Snape was the person trying to steal the Philosopher’s Stone. Even though he’s wrong about Snape’s intentions, he is right in the sense that Snape was once involved with the Death Eaters. When he saw the stag patronus, he believed that it was somehow his father saving him. Harry doesn’t spend very much time thinking about the future or what he wants, and when he does, he often thinks of it pessimistically (believing he wouldn’t survive beyond the first task of the Triwizard Tournament). Although Harry sometimes resents his destiny, he commits himself to stopping Voldemort and dedicates himself to destroying Horcruxes so he can kill Voldemort once and for all. It can sometimes be difficult for Harry to predict chains of events. It doesn’t occur to him that if he spares Peter Pettigrew, he might find a way to return to Voldemort, which would result in Professor Trelawney’s prophecy coming true. Harry often struggles to read between the lines. He doesn’t pick up on Cho’s (fairly obvious) jealousy about Harry’s friendship with Hermione, and misses the cue that he was supposed to use that moment to reassure her.

Inferior Extroverted Thinking [Te]: When Harry finally loses his temper, his Te becomes apparent. Nobody is safe when Harry finally loses his temper. Between Dumbledore practically ignoring him all year long and the events at the Ministry of Magic (notably, Sirius’s death), Harry reaches a breaking point and he finally tells Dumbledore off for not being there for him. His violent outburst even causes him to angrily break items in Dumbledore’s office. Harry has no problem standing up for himself and others, and can become quite vicious. When Harry seeks out information on his own, it’s usually for a reason. He wants to use it for something. He tries to prepare for his first Quidditch match by borrowing Quidditch Through the Ages from Hermione. He only spends time in the library when he needs to acquire specific knowledge that will aid him with real problems (researching how to get past his dragon, looking in the restricted section for information on Nicolas Flamel). Harry doesn’t typically develop his own plans – he typically leaves all that to Hermione (Te-dom). It’s difficult for Harry to prepare for things ahead of time, as indicated by his procrastination during the Triwizard Tournament. He didn’t give himself enough time to try to figure out the clue for the second task, much to Hermione’s disappointment. He also tends to put off his school assignments and leave them for the last minute. Even though people tend to look to Harry for leadership, Harry often feels uncomfortable in this role. He can be assertive when he needs to be, but it’s not natural for him. It’s difficult for him to give orders and he has a hard time when people look to him for answers.

Enneagram: 9w8 6w7 2w1 Sp/Sx

Quotes:

Harry: Look, let’s not talk about Cedric right now… let’s talk about something else.
Cho: I thought, I thought you’d u-u-understand! I need to talk about it! Surely you n-need to talk about it too! I mean, you saw it happen, d-didn’t you?
Harry: Well – I have talked about it, to Ron and Hermione, but-
Cho: Oh, you’ll talk to Hermione Granger! But you won’t talk to me! P-perhaps it would be best if we just… just p-paid and you went and met up with Hermione G-Granger, like you obviously want to!

Harry: I’m going to keep going until I succeed — or die. Don’t think I don’t know how this might end. I’ve known it for years.

Harry: You’re the one who is weak. You will never know love or friendship. And I feel sorry for you.

“And Harry saw very clearly as he sat there under the hot sun how people who cared about him had stood in front of him one by one, his mother, his father, his godfather, and finally Dumbledore, all determined to protect him; but now that was over. He could not let anybody else stand between him and Voldemort; he must abandon forever the illusion he ought to have lost at the age of one, that the shelter of a parent’s arms meant that nothing could hurt him. There was no waking from this nightmare, no comforting whisper in the dark that he was safe really, that it was all in his imagination; the last and greatest of his protectors had died, and he was more alone than he had ever been.”

Harry: Ginny, listen…I can’t be involved with you anymore. We’ve got to stop seeing each other. We can’t be together.
Ginny: It’s for some stupid noble reason isn’t it?
Harry: It’s been like…like something out of someone else’s life these last few weeks with you. But I can’t…we can’t…I’ve got to do things alone now. Voldemort uses people his enemies are close to. He’s already used you as bait once, and that was just because you were my best friend’s sister. Think how much danger you’ll be in if we keep this up. He’ll know, he’ll find out. He’ll try and get me through you.
Harry: What if I don’t care?
Ginny: I care. How do you think I’d feel if this was your funeral…and it was my fault…

“It was, he thought, the difference between being dragged into the arena to face a battle to the death and walking into the arena with your head held high. Some people, perhaps, would say that there was little to choose between the two ways, but Dumbledore knew – and so do I, thought Harry, with a rush of fierce pride, and so did my parents – that there was all the difference in the world.”

Harry: Do you—do you think I want to—do you think I give a—I DON’T CARE WHAT YOU HAVE TO SAY!
Dumbledore: You will. Because you are not nearly as mad at me as you ought to be. If you are to attack me, as I know you are close to doing, I would like to have thoroughly earned it.

Harry: Let me out.
Dumbledore: No.
Harry: If you don’t – if you keep me in here – if you don’t let me-
Dumbledore: By all means continue destroying my possessions. I daresay I have too many.

Dumbledore: There is no shame in what you are feeling, Harry. On the contrary… the fact that you can feel pain like this is your greatest strength.

Harry: I DON’T CARE! I’VE HAD ENOUGH, I’VE SEEN ENOUGH, I WANT OUT, I WANT IT TO END, I DON’T CARE ANYMORE!
Dumbledore: You do care. You care so much you feel as though you will bleed to death with the pain of it.

Harry: I didn’t want anyone to talk to me.
Ginny: Well, that was a bit stupid of you, seeing as how you don’t know anyone but me who’s been possessed by You-Know-Who, and I can tell you how it feels.

Dolores Umbridge: Your previous teachers in this subject may have allowed you more licence, but as none of them–with the possible exception of Professor Quirrell, who did at least appear to have restricted himself to age-appropriate subjects–would have passed a Ministry inspection–
Harry: Yeah, Quirrell was a great teacher, there was just that minor drawback of him having Lord Voldemort sticking out of the back of his head.

“I just wondered where you —” Ron broke off, shrugging. “Nothing. I’m going back to bed.”
“Just thought you’d come nosing around, did you?” Harry shouted. He knew that Ron had no idea what he’d walked in on, knew he hadn’t done it on purpose, but he didn’t care — at this moment he hated everything about Ron, right down to the several inches of bare ankle showing beneath his pajama trousers.”

“As Hagrid had said, what would come would come and he would have to meet it when it did.”

“No, I’m fine,’ said Harry, wondering why he kept telling people this, and wondering whether he had ever been less fine.”

“…he was going to die upright like his father, and he was going to die trying to defend himself, even if no defence was possible…”

Harry: [to Cedric] Yeah…we’ve helped each other out, haven’t we? We both got here. Let’s just take it together.

Ludo Bagman: Most of the judges, feel that this shows moral fiber and merits full marks. However… Mr Potter’s score is forty-five points.

“Harry was finding it difficult to think about the future at all, he felt as if his whole life had been leading up to, and would finish with, the first task…”

“Harry, listen,” said Hermione, exchanging a look with Ron, “you must be really upset about what we heard yesterday. But the thing is, you mustn’t go doing anything stupid.”
“Like what?” said Harry.
“Like trying to go after Black,” said Ron sharply.
Harry could tell they had rehearsed this conversation while he had been asleep. He didn’t say anything.”

“Get off me,” Harry spat, throwing Pettigrew’s hands off him in disgust. “I’m not doing this for you. I’m doing it because — I don’t reckon my dad would’ve wanted them to become killers — just for you.”

Harry: So, according to you, Cedric Diggory dropped dead of his own accord did he?

“Hmm,” said a small voice in his ear. “Difficult. Very difficult. Plenty of courage, I see. Not a bad mind either. There’s talent, oh my goodness, yes — and a nice thirst to prove yourself, now that’s interesting. . . . So where shall I put you?”
Harry gripped the edges of the stool and thought, Not Slytherin, not Slytherin.
“Not Slytherin, eh?” said the small voice. “Are you sure? You could be great, you know, it’s all here in your head, and Slytherin will help you on the way to greatness, no doubt about that — no? Well, if you’re sure — better be GRYFFINDOR!”

Dobby: Dobby has heard of your greatness, sir, but of your goodness, Dobby never knew…

Madam Pomfrey: [to Harry] Oh, it’s you, is it? I suppose you’ve been doing something dangerous again?

Dumbledore: I will say it again. You have shown bravery beyond anything I could have expected of you tonight, Harry. You have shown bravery equal to those who died fighting Voldemort at the height of his powers. You have shouldered a grown wizard’s burden and found yourself equal to it.

McGonagall: For heaven’s sake, Potter! Do you really think this is about truth or lies? It’s about keeping your head down and your temper under control!

Harry: So that’s it, is it? “Stay there?” That’s all anyone could tell me after I got attacked by those dementors too! Just stay put while the grown-ups sort it out, Harry! We won’t bother telling you anything, though, because your tiny little brain might not be able to cope with it!

Snape: I told you to empty yourself of emotion!
Harry: Yeah? Well, I’m finding that hard at the moment.
Snape:Then you will find yourself easy prey for the Dark Lord! Fools who wear their hearts proudly on their sleeves, who cannot control their emotions, who wallow in sad memories and allow themselves to be provoked this easily — weak people, in other words — they stand no chance against his powers! He will penetrate your mind with absurd ease, Potter!

Hermione: This isn’t a criticism, Harry! But you do … sort of … I mean — don’t you think you’ve got a bit of a — a — saving people thing?

Harry: I don’t want to talk about how I feel, all right?
Dumbledore: Harry, suffering like this proves you are still a man! This pain is part of being human –
Harry: THEN — I — DON’T — WANT — TO — BE — HUMAN!

“Harry – you’re a great wizard, you know.”
“I’m not as good as you,” said Harry, very embarrassed, as she let go of him.
“Me!” said Hermione. “Books! And cleverness! There are more important things – friendship and bravery and – oh Harry – be careful!”

“You’ll soon find out some wizarding families are much better than others, Potter. You don’t want to go making friends with the wrong sort. I can help you there.”
He held out his hand to shake Harry’s, but Harry didn’t take it.
“I think I can tell who the wrong sort are for myself, thanks,” he said coolly.”

Lupin: [to Harry] “What you fear most of all is —fear. Very wise…”

“Every second he breathed, the smell of the grass, the cool air on his face, was so precious: To think that people had years and years, time to waste, so much time it dragged, and he was clinging to each second.”

“A fierce battle was raging inside Harry’s brain:
She’s Ron’s sister.
But she’s ditched Dean!
She’s still Ron’s sister.
I’m his best mate!
That’ll make it worse.
If I talked to him first-
He’d hit you.
What if I don’t care?
He’s your best mate!”

Snow White/Mary Margaret Blanchard (Once Upon a Time): ISFP


Dominant Introverted Feeling [Fi]: Snow operates by her own, personalized code of morality. She has a strong sense of right and wrong, and holds people to high standards of conduct. She rebuffs David’s advances for a while because he’s married and it’s not right for them to see each other and rejects him multiple times before eventually caving. She justifies their affair because they’re supposed to be together. It’s meant to be! However, she does value honesty and persuades David to come clean with Kathryn. Though he tells her he did as she asked, Mary Margaret later finds out that he lied, and feels deeply betrayed. When the entire town turns against her and sees her as a homewrecker, it hurts because that’s not who Mary Margaret is. She is a kind, person with morals. Snow typically wants to do something to deal with her feelings. When she’s struggling to get over Charming, she seeks out Rumplestiltskin to help her get rid of her pain. She always tries to take the high road, regardless of what Regina does to her, because she views herself as good. She strives to be better than her nemesis and she can be very hard on herself when she falls short of the idealized image she has of herself. She values freedom and has a fondness for birds. She emphasizes to her class that they are building homes, not cages. Snow is virtuous, helpful, and gracious. She cares very deeply for people and has a warm, compassionate nature. When she’s on date with Dr. Wale and notices that he’s checking out Ruby while she’s speaking, she promptly ends the date. She knows who she is and what she wants and doesn’t waste her time with people who don’t appreciate her. Because she believes so strongly in being truthful, she doesn’t agree with lying to spare people’s feelings. In addition to trying to convince David to tell Kathryn about their affair, she also encourages Emma to tell Ava and Nicholas the truth about their father, and feels that Emma should also be honest with Henry about his. Snow tries to get Ariel to tell Eric the truth about who she really is as well. She isolates herself in the Enchanted Forest after meeting Charming and deals with her feelings about his wedding privately. Snow doesn’t come out and directly ask Red about him because she doesn’t want to discuss it openly. When Mary Margaret and David wake up from the curse ten years in, they get close to reuniting with Emma, but Snow is unable to go through with it knowing that it would doom everyone else in Storybrooke and she can’t bring herself to act so selfishly.

Auxiliary Extroverted Sensing [Se]: When Charming and Abigail are riding through the forest, Snow cuts down a tree in order to block their path, causing a diversion which allows her to steal from them. She is opportunistic and resourceful, using whatever happens to be available to her to get the job done. She is extremely capable of handling herself out in the wilderness and lives a life on the run for a long time. Snow tends to deal with her feelings by acting impetuously. Whether it’s finding Rumplestiltskin to help her get over Charming, or quasi-stalking David when he decides to give his marriage another chance after “remembering” her. When Mary Margaret finds a trapped dove, she becomes determined to get it back to the rest of it’s flock, putting herself at risk to do so (Fi-Se). Mary Margaret impulsively starts seeing David behind Kathryn’s back, even though she knows it isn’t right. She reminds him that they shouldn’t be doing what they’re doing and genuinely feels badly about it, but she can’t seem to control her urges. Snow White is good at physical combat, archery, and rides horses from a young age. She enjoys having adventures and doesn’t mind tasking risks. Danger can be exciting and fun.

Tertiary Introverted Intuition [Ni]: Mary Margaret is proven to have an appreciation of symbolism. When she first speaks to Emma about the book she gave Henry, she tells her that everyone knows those stories because they are a way of making sense of the world we live in. She gives Henry the book as a symbol of hope and to allow his imagination to flourish. Snow maintains hope in even the most dismal situations and always believes that she (and the people she loves) will get their happy endings one way or another, even though she sometimes experiences temporary feelings of pessimism and doubt. Sometimes, she can get stuck and see only one way out of things. David can’t leave Neverland, so she’ll just have to stay behind and live there with him. She doesn’t always know how, but she keeps the faith that, one way or another, things will work themselves out. Although she doesn’t know Abigail or Charming, she is immediately about to discern that he isn’t marrying her for love. She guesses that they are only marrying to unite their two kingdoms in an effort to prevent war, with no knowledge of their situation whatsoever. Mary Margaret doesn’t usually entertain multiple possibilities – she typically has one gut feeling and goes with it. She knows how it will end if she begins a secret relationship with David (Ni), but she even knowing what the outcome will be, she does it anyway (Se). Her instincts about people are often pretty good. Even though she barely knows Emma, she feels a connection to her and trusts her implicitly. She also believes that Regina does have the ability to change and become a force for good.

Inferior Extroverted Thinking [Te]: It’s difficult for Mary Margaret to put her feelings aside. She does what’s right or what’s moral, not what makes the most logical sense. Under stress, she can second guess her ethical decisions, noting how they never get her anywhere, which can lead her to make decisions based on what is rational instead (deciding that she needs to kill Cora or taking a potion to forget Charming). Snow usually likes to have a plan and can strategize when she needs to. Although she doesn’t feel good about it, she’s capable of putting aside her morals to do what she needs to do. She lives as a bandit for a while because of the price on her head, and sells family heirlooms in order to survive. After spending such a long time hiding from Regina, Snow decides that she will take back her kingdom with Charming by her side and wages war.

Note: I constantly see her typed as an INFP (and, in some cases, ISFJ), but there is virtually no Ne or Si in her. I think people just get an INFP “sense” from her without really looking for concrete evidence to actually support it. I think Se/Ni is fairly obvious in her.

Quotes:

Mary Margaret: As we build our bird houses remember what you’re making is a home, not a cage. The bird is free and will do what it will. This is for them, not us. They’re loyal creatures. If you love them and they love you, they will always find you.

Mary Margaret: As you know, Henry is a special boy. So smart, so creative, and as you might be aware… lonely. He needed it.
Regina: What he needs is a dose of reality.

Emma: How’s a book supposed to help?
Mary Margaret: What do you think stories are for? These stories… the classics. There’s a reason we all know them. They’re a way for us to deal with our world. A world that doesn’t always make sense. See, Henry hasn’t had the easiest life.
Emma: Yeah, she’s kind of a hard-ass.
Mary Margaret: No, it’s more than her. He’s like any adopted child. He wrestles with that most basic question they all inevitably face – “Why would anyone give me away?” I am so sorry. I’m so sorry. I didn’t mean in any way to judge you.
Emma: It’s okay.
Mary Margaret: Look, I gave the book to him because I wanted Henry to have the most important thing anyone can have… hope. Believing in even the possibility of a happy ending is a very powerful thing.
Emma: You know where he is, don’t you?
Mary Margaret: You might want to check his castle.

Mary Margaret: I want kids, marriage, true love. I want it all. But that, of course, is wildly inappropriate for me to discuss on a first date.

Snow White: The nag with the bad attitude? That’s what this is about?
Prince Charming: She’s my fiancé.
Snow White: Good luck with that. You must be getting something impressive to have agreed to that union.
Prince Charming: Excuse me?
Snow White: I know how this works. True love? It doesn’t exist. It’s all arranged marriages and business transactions. There’s no such thing as love at first sight or first kiss. Let me guess. Her kingdom wants to take over yours, and this – what, a last-ditch effort to avoid war?
Prince Charming: This is not a takeover. It-It’s a merger and quite frankly, it’s none of your business.

Emma: He doesn’t want the kids.
Mary Margaret: And you don’t want to tell them.
Emma: I can’t. Because all I’ll be telling them is that false hope I gave them is exactly that.
Mary Margaret: The truth can be painful, Emma, but it can also be cathartic.

Snow White: Thank you. So…. How are things back in the world?
Red: Come on. Ask what you really want.
Snow White: I don’t know what you mean. [Red gives her a look] Okay, fine. Tell me.
Red: The wedding’s happening. Prince James is marrying Midas’ daughter… in two days’ time. You okay?
Snow White: I just thought, the longer I was out here, the easier it would be to for get him, but… Instead, all I do is think about him.
Red: I’m sorry.
Snow White: I wish there was a way to get him out of my head. [Red makes a face] What? Is there?
Red: Of course not. I mean, that would–
Snow White: Red, what do you know? Come on, I helped you when no one else would. What do you know?

Snow White: I need a cure.
Rumplestiltskin: What ails you, doll?
Snow White: A broken heart.
Rumplestiltskin: Ah, the most painful of afflictions. Well, I’m afraid if you want me to make him love you, no can do, and nothing can.
Snow White: No, that’s not the problem. We can’t be together.
Rumplestiltskin: Well, that I can help you with. [He removes a vial from his pocket and fills it with water from the lake. In his hand, the water turns a cloudy white]
Snow White: That’ll do it?
Rumplestiltskin: Not yet. No two loves are… exactly alike. We must make this… [Pulls some hair from her head] Personal!
Snow White: Aah! So, if I drink that, I’ll no longer love him?
Rumplestiltskin: The next time you see the object of your grief, you won’t even remember who he is.
Snow White: I won’t remember him?
Rumplestiltskin: Love is the most powerful magic. So the cure must be… extreme.
Snow White: “Extreme” sounds like an understatement.
Rumplestiltskin: Don’t doubt yourself now, dearie. Love makes us sick, haunts our dreams, destroys our days. Love… has killed more than any disease. This cure is a gift.

Dr. Thatcher: Well, the good news is, no broken bones. She was just a little dehydrated, but I got her some fluids, and she should be just fine.
Mary Margaret: And the bad news?
Dr. Thatcher: Well, this is a North Atlantic dove. It’s a migratory species, very unique among American doves. Now, they tend to form strong monogamous bonds, meaning–
Mary Margaret: If I don’t get her back to her flock, she’ll be alone forever.
Dr. Thatcher: Well, it’s… It’s a long shot, but the alternative… She’ll heal, but she won’t be happy here.
Mary Margaret: I’ll take my chances. Thank you, doctor.
Dr. Thatcher: You’re welcome. Good luck.
David: Mary Margaret, there’s a storm coming. You really shouldn’t be out there.
Mary Margaret: Well, the storm is coming tomorrow, and if I wait, she could be lost forever, completely alone. No one deserves that.
David: Then let me drive you.
Mary Margaret: I don’t need your help David, I’ll be fine.

Mary Margaret: Believing in even the possibility of a happy ending is a powerful thing, but living with that kind of belief… That’s the most powerful thing of all.

Emma: Mary Margaret. So, how’s your day going?
Mary Margaret: Henry’s fine.
Emma: That’s not what I asked you. You sure?
Mary Margaret: Really. He’s his normal self. Regina won’t keep you separated forever. When people are supposed to be together, they find a way [She looks over at David, who smiles at her.]

Mary Margaret: Girls’ night’s really working out for you.
Ashley: Thought it would make me feel better. But the truth is…I need a “be with my guy night”. But he’s never around. And I’m at home with the baby all day. I mean, what’s the point of being together if we’re not together?
Mary Margaret: I get it. Loving someone you can’t be with…it’s a terrible, terrible burden.

Mary Margaret: Who did this?
David: I don’t know. I’m sorry, I don’t know how any of this happened.
Mary Margaret: You don’t know? Really?
David: Mary Margaret, I can’t control what other people do.
Mary Margaret: No, but you can control what you do, and you lied. And now everyone is calling me a tramp.
David: Who told her?
Mary Margaret: That is exactly the wrong question. The real question is why didn’t you do what we discussed? Why didn’t you tell her?
David: I thought we could spare her feelings.
Mary Margaret: Right. You thought. Not we. You. And we discussed this.
David: I didn’t want anyone to get hurt.
Mary Margaret: Now everyone is hurt. We had an understanding. We had an agreement. But you not only lied to her, you lied to me.

Emma: You think this is about what happened with David?
Mary Margaret: Oh, I know it is. A few of them told me as much. I’ve never…been a homewrecker before.
Emma: It’s gonna roll over. You made a mistake with David. It happens. You don’t have to do charity to win people’s hearts back.
Mary Margaret: I have to do something. And this is the best I can do. I’ve ruined my life.

Emma: [amazed, after Mary Margaret has shot the ogre in the eye] When was the last time you shot an arrow?
Mary Margaret: Twenty-eight years ago. Guess it’s like riding a bike.
Emma: Yeah, but… how did you know you could hit that?
Mary Margaret: I didn’t.

Mary Margaret: I had a lot of fun today.
David: Fun? Almost getting killed is fun?
Mary Margaret: Yeah. I missed our adventures!
David: Me too. It was kind of fun.

David: You know, we could do this all the time. When the beans grow, we could go back. Everyone could go home.
Mary Margaret: I don’t know.
David: What don’t you know?
Mary Margaret: Home is where our family is. And that’s here.

[Cora has willfully killed Johanna, Snow’s former servant, as a show of force]
Mary Margaret: I followed the same rule my entire life. Hold on to goodness. It’s what my mother taught me. How many more lives is following that lesson going to take away from me?
David: You can’t let Cora make you lose faith in who you are, someone who does the right thing. Now, it’s exactly what she wants.
Mary Margaret: I made the “right” decision when I stopped Regina’s execution all those years ago? When it could’ve saved us all of this heartache. I made the “right” decision, when I sent Emma through the wardrobe alone, and we didn’t see her first steps? I made the “right” decision, when I let my own mother die from Cora’s poison.
David: And we keep beating them.
Mary Margaret: At what cost? All I want is our happy ending. It’s time. We’ve earned it.

Mary Margaret: We keep thinking that people will change. What if that’s wrong? What if *I’m* the one who has to change?
David: Change how?
Mary Margaret: I’m going to kill Cora.

Mary Margaret: I gave the book to him because I wanted Henry to have the most important thing anyone can have. Hope. Believing in even the possibility of a happy ending is a very powerful thing.

Mary Margaret: Kill me.
Regina: What?
Mary Margaret: Regina, we have been fighting for so long. It’s cost us so much. It has to end before anyone else dies. So, please… just do it.
Regina: [shakes her head] Henry would never forgive me. But you know what my problem is? I never learn from my mistakes.
[She rips out Mary Margaret’s heart]

Mary Margaret: [referring to August] Who was that?
Emma: I don’t know yet.
Mary Margaret: Yet? So you’re going to find out?
Emma: It’s nothing.
Mary Margaret: Nothing with you means something, because if it were nothing, we wouldn’t be talking about it.

Mary Margaret: You ever walk into a situation where you know exactly what’s going to happen… and then you go into it anyway? And then when what you’re afraid of happens… you kick yourself, because you should have known better. But that’s just who you are – so you keep punishing yourself.

Mary Margaret: We’re going to win this fight, you know. Good always defeats evil.
Emma: You sound like Henry.
Mary Margaret: Guess optimism runs in the family.
Emma: I think it skipped a generation.

David: I know what happened to Queen Eva, and I have zero problem with Cora dying for it, but not by your hand and not out of vengeance.
Mary Margaret: Why?
David: Because you wouldn’t be able to live with yourself. You have the purest heart of anyone I have ever known. That’s who you are, and that’s who you’re gonna stay.

Mary Margaret: This book somehow arrived. Was it given to me? Did I forget about it? I don’t know. But there it was. And do you know what I saw when I looked inside? Hope.
Henry: Looks like fairy tales to me.
Mary Margaret: And what exactly do you think fairy tales are? They are a reminder that our lives will get better if we just hold on to hope. Your happy ending may not be what you expect; but that is what will make it so special.

[David is asking Mary Margaret if she had been involved in Kathryn’s murder]
Mary Margaret: When your phone records came back, when I found you wandering in the woods, when everyone thought you killed Kathryn, I stood by you. I never once doubted you. And now that everything is pointing to me… you actually think I am capable of that kind of evil? Get… out.

Mary Margaret: So you don’t want people to rely on you, but you took your son. Now, that sounds like a stable home for him. What the hell is wrong with you?
Emma: I want what’s best for him.
Mary Margaret: And running is what’s best for him? Or is that what’s best for you? You’re reverting, Emma, into the person you were before you got here; and I thought you’d changed.
Emma: You thought wrong.
Mary Margaret: Well, regardless, you have to do what’s right for Henry now.
Emma: What’s that?
Mary Margaret: Oh, I don’t know. You’re his mother. That’s your job, so you figure it out.

Sidney: Sometimes doing a bad thing for a good reason is OK, right?
Mary Margaret: Yeah. I mean, maybe you’re doing something wrong, but if it’s what’s meant to be, if it’s what’s right, does that really make you a bad person?

Mary Margaret: You’re just protecting yourself – with that wall you put up.
Emma: Just because I don’t get emotional over men.
Mary Margaret: You don’t get emotional over men? Ah, the floral abuse tells a different story.
Emma: What story is that?
Mary Margaret: The one that’s obvious to everyone except apparently you, that you have feelings for Graham.
Emma: Come on!
Mary Margaret: There’s that wall.
Emma: That’s not a wall.
Mary Margaret: Really?
Emma: There’s nothing wrong with being cautious.
Mary Margaret: Oh, true. True. But Emma, that wall of yours – it may keep out pain; but it also may keep out love.

Mary Margaret: Because when you betray the people you love, when you make them see the worst parts of you, what you’ve done changes everything. There’s no going back. You’ve shattered the bonds you worked so hard to forge. And the stronger those bonds once were, the more difficult they are to put back together… If they can be repaired at all.

Snow White: I went to the Blue Fairy, and begged her to help, to save you with magic. But what she gave me? It… it was dark magic – a candle that could restore your life… by taking away someone else’s. It was the only way. But I couldn’t do it. I’m sorry. I could’ve healed you. But I was too afraid. [she sobs]
Queen Eva: Snow, that wasn’t fear. That was strength. Strength… to resist darkness. I am so proud of you.

Snow White: Stop trying to talk me out of this. The castle is secure. I’m going.
Grumpy: Keep the little knife between your tuffets.
Snow White: I promised I would come alone and unarmed. It’s a parley. There are rules.
Red: You’re too noble for your own good.
Snow White: I’m not. But enough of you have risked your lives because of something that’s between the Queen and me. I will not let anyone else get hurt because of me.

Snow White: I’m no queen. I’m no leader. I’m just a girl who lost her parents, ran away into the woods, and became a bandit.

Beca Mitchell (Pitch Perfect): ISFP


Dominant Introverted Feeling [Fi]: Beca places a high value on individualism. She is who she is and she doesn’t censor herself for anyone. Beca is opinionated, true to herself, and says exactly what she’s thinking. She doesn’t tip-toe around other people’s feelings or sugarcoat the truth. She flatly states that acapella is lame when the Barden Bellas try to get her to join their group and has no interest in joining them. She initially has trouble fitting in and deferring to Aubrey. She’s “alternative” and, prior to college, she never really had a group of girl friends. Beca doesn’t really talk about her feelings. When she begins to feel bad about how she treated Jesse, she expresses this by watching all of the movies he recommended (which, at the time, she looked down on), and cries to herself as she watches the end of The Breakfast Club. She even incorporates this into the group’s set for their competition. Beca wants to deal with her feelings on her own and typically resists confiding in other people.

Auxiliary Extroverted Sensing [Se]: One of the reasons that Beca clashes with Aubrey is because Aubrey wants to do things by the book and the way they’ve always been done. Beca, on the other hand, advocates for spontaneity and wants to open the group up to trying new things. Beca is eager to just dive in and start doing. She is a talented singer and has an ear for musical arrangements. Jesse is flabbergasted to learn that Beca doesn’t enjoy movies, because the endings are always too predictable. Beca is good at picking up on what’s going on in her environment. She pays attention to how the audience reacts to her performance, and takes action based on her observations. In the middle of their performance, Beca changes the arrangement because she’s reacting to how the people in the crowd are responding to them.

Tertiary Introverted Intuition [Ni]: Producing music is all Beca wants to do, and everything she does (even joining the Bellas) is to get herself to where she wants to be in life. Her father promises that she can drop out at the end of the year and he’ll help her move to Los Angeles if she makes an effort to get involved on campus, so she agrees. Beca is focused on making her dreams come true and wants to pay her dues and work her way up until she reaches her ultimate goal. Beca is creative and instinctively knows what an audience will respond to.

Inferior Extroverted Thinking [Te]: Beca goes after what she wants. Although she doesn’t show a desire to lead, she has no problem stepping in and taking initiative when necessary. Beca doesn’t particularly want to be in college. For her, it’s a means to an end. Beca puts a lot of pressure on herself trying to balance her work at the recording studio with her duties as a Bella, and ends up taking out her frustrations on her teammates.

Quotes:

Dr. Mitchell: So, when did you get here? How did you get here?
Beca: Took a cab. Didn’t wanna inconvenience you and Sheila. How is the step-monster?
Dr. Mitchell: She is fine, thank you for asking. She’s actually in Vegas at a conference-
Beca: Oh, no, dad. I don’t actually care. I just wanted to say step-monster.

Beca: I don’t wanna study on the grass, dad. I need to move to LA and get a job at a record label and start paying my dues.

Beca: I wanna produce music. I wanna make music, dad.

Chloe: So, are you interested?
Beca: Sorry, it’s just… it’s pretty lame.
Aubrey: A-ca-scuse me? Synchronized lady dancing to a Mariah Carey chart-topper is not lame!
Chloe: We sing all over the world, and we compete in national championships!
Beca: On purpose?
Aubrey: We played the Cobb Energy Performing Arts Center, you bitch!
Chloe: What Aubrey means to say is that we are a a close-knit talented group of of ladies whose dream is to return to the national finals at Lincoln Center this year. Help us turn our dreams into a reality?
Beca: Sorry, I don’t even sing, but it was really nice to meet you guys.

Beca: Thanks for bailing me out.
Jesse: Well I didn’t.
Beca: You called my dad?
Jesse: I know, I know, but they we putting you in handcuffs, Bec. It looked pretty serious.
Beca: That doesn’t mean you call my dad.
Jesse: Who else was I gonna call? Okay, why are you yelling at me? I’m the only one here.
Beca: I didn’t ask you to be.
Jesse: I was just trying to help you.
Beca: I don’t need your help, you’re not my boyfriend.
Jesse: Got it.

Dr. Mitchell: Come on, Bec, that’s so unfair. Look your mom and I, we didn’t work. But I tried so hard to make things right between us. But you, just shut me out.
Beca: Yeah, well, I shut everybody out. Don’t take it personally. It’s just easier.

Chloe: No, but the National A Cappella Association is in there talking to the dean about us, and who knows what’s gonna happen?
Beca: We won three championships. Whatever happens in there, we’re gonna be fine. Maybe it’s time to think about other stuff.
Chloe: What other stuff?
Beca: You know, school, jobs, life.
Chloe: This group is my life. I’ve intentionally failed Russian Lit three times so I could be a Bella. This is the worst thing that’s ever happened to us. Ever.

Jesse: Any first-day jitters?
Beca: No, no. You know, I’m just gonna be moody and distant. Artists love that.

Aubrey: Okay, that was two steps away from being almost fine.
Beca: Sorry, what are we doing?
Chloe: We’re rediscovering our sound.
Beca: Are we? Cause it feels like we’re just singing songs that would never go in our set.
Chloe: Beca, come on.
Beca: No, none of us know how to beat Das Sound Machine, but I know it’s not gonna be by doing this.
Aubrey: This is just an exercise in finding harmony, Beca. Sometimes you have to break things down before you can build them back up again.
Beca: I’ve got more important things to do!
Chloe: What could be more important than this?

Beca: Okay. I’ve been interning at a recording studio and a legit music producer wants to hear my work. God forbid I have something going on outside this group.
Chloe: Okay. So why would you keep something like that from us?
Beca: ‘Cause you’re obsessed! You all are. We’re graduating, and the only person thinking about life after the Bellas is me.
Chloe: What is so wrong with being focused on the Bellas? This has been my family for seven years.
Beca: Yeah, ’cause you’re too scared to leave! Sack up, dude!
Chloe: Okay, so you’ve been lying to us for the entire year and now you’re just gonna flake out? Now you’re gonna flake out when the Worlds is, like, right after graduation?
Beca: My God! Enough about the Worlds! I… I’m out of here.
Chloe: Okay, you’re just gonna leave now?
Beca: We all have to, eventually, Chloe! It might as well be now! If you all knew what was good for you, you’d follow me.

Beca: It’s just everything’s changing so fast and I’m putting all this pressure on myself, you know? I don’t wanna fail.
Chloe: But if you just would have said something…
Beca: Yeah, I know. But I’m weird about that stuff. I thought I could figure it out on my own, and I can’t. Maybe I don’t have anything original to say. I wish I could do what you do.

Beca: You know, when I look back on this, I won’t remember performing and competing. I’m gonna remember you weirdos. It makes me really sad to think it won’t ever be like this again. I’m gonna miss you guys.

Aubrey: Before everybody goes to bed tonight, I need you to make a list of everything you did wrong.
Fat Amy: I’m gonna melt that cabbage patch kid.
Beca: Hey guys, what we just did was great, right?
Aubrey: Calm your pits Beca, we still lost.
Beca: Yeah but it was spontaneous. It was awesome. We were actually listening to…
Aubrey: Okay everybody, hands in. “Ahh” on my count. On three of after three?

Aubrey: Beca, I’m glad you’re here. I’m calling an emergency Bella meeting. First up… Our score sheet revealed that the Sockappellas almost beat us. And Fat Amy, you need to do it exactly how we rehearsed it, okay? No surprises.
Beca: We should be taking risks. It’s not enough to be good, we need to put ourselves out there, be different.
Cynthia Rose: Beca’s right. The Trebles never sing the same song twice.
Beca: The audience love the Trebles, they tolerate us. We could change the face of a cappella if we…Oh my god, that sounded so queerballs. What’s happening to me? Um… let me show you this arrangement I’ve been working on.

Aubrey: What the hell Beca? Were you trying to screw us up?
Beca: Are you serious?
Aubrey: Newsflash. This isn’t the Beca Show.
Beca: Okay, I’m sorry that I messed you up, but in case you hadn’t noticed, everybody pretty much dozed off during our set.
Aubrey: It’s not your job to decide what we do and when we do it. Why don’t you ask the rest of the group how they felt about your little improvisation?
Beca: Amy?
Fat Amy: It was cool. But it did take us a little bit by surprise.
Aubrey: Yeah, a lot like surprise.
Fat Amy: Mmmm a little.
Aubrey: I told you she wasn’t a Bella.
Chloe: Aubrey, don’t.
Beca: No, that’s okay. You don’t have to pretend you’re allowed to have a say in the group, right?
Aubrey: Your attitude sucks. You’re a grade-A pain in my ass, and I know you’re hooking up with Jesse.
Jesse: Woah, woah, Aubrey, calm down. We’re not hooking up, I swear.
Beca: Jesus Christ! That’s perfect. Of course you’re here right now. I don’t need your help, okay? Can you back off? If this is what I get for trying…

Aria Montgomery (Pretty Little Liars): ISFP


Dominant Introverted Feeling [Fi]: Aria’s emotions are private and intense. She keeps a journal, which she writes in to get out all of her feelings. Her value system is internal – she does what she has to do to protect herself and the people closest to her. She can be very hard on people who violate her morals or wrong her. When Aria kills Shana to protect her friends, she struggles to live with the guilt and wants to turn herself in for the murder. She primary deals with her feelings following the incident in solitude. She repeatedly watches the video of Shana’s memorial alone and cries silently. Aria has trouble with forgiving herself for what she did and tries to make a donation towards the cost of the funeral, until she is interrupted and stopped by Ezra. Aria needs to “find a way to live with what she did in New York.” She attempts to alleviate her guilt by going over to Jenna’s to be “sorry for her loss” and offers to listen to her talk about Shana in order to help her heal. Aria doesn’t care what other people think of her relationship with Ezra. It feels right to her, so other people’s opinions don’t matter. She can sometimes see through people and call them out on their behavior. When Sean tries to give her flowers to say “thanks”, Aria flatly states that his real motive was to hurt Hanna. When Aria is feeling something, she doesn’t hold back for the sake of group harmony. She is in a bad mood and withdrawn on her double date with Noel, Hanna, and Sean because she’s upset about Ezra and can’t pull herself out of her funk. After she finds out the truth about Hanna giving Ella the museum tickets, she is snarky and isolates herself from the rest of the group in Emily’s bedroom. She doesn’t address what’s bothering her, but makes rude comments and eventually gets up and leaves. Aria begins working for A.D. in order to protect Ezra from the police report she filled out accusing him of statutory rape after A.D. threatens to make it public, but feels so guilty about what she’s done that she wants to turn herself in. She can’t stand that she betrayed her friends to keep Ezra out of trouble. Aria has a hard time doing something if it contradicts the way she’s feeling. For example, she refuses to go to her mother’s for dinner after she moves into her own apartment because, to Aria, doing so would be like saying she’s okay with them being separated when she isn’t.

Auxiliary Extroverted Sensing [Se]: It can be quite difficult for Aria to think abut the consequences of her actions before doing something. She pursues a relationship with Ezra even though doing so can get him into a lot of trouble. Aria acts on impulse a lot, which is typically driven by her emotions, and when she gets herself worked up about something, she doesn’t really care about the repercussions. She has a history of acting out in violent, destructive ways, such as destroying Ezra’s apartment or trashing her father’s office after she discovers his affair. On occasion, Aria will make the risky move of showing up at Ezra’s apartment without calling ahead. At the dance-a-thon, she’s all ready to march over to Simone and make a scene about Ezra, but Spencer (who always thinks about consequences), intervenes and diffuses the situation before it can start. Aria is unafraid to act in the moment. She uses the rifle to knock Shana off the stage to save her friends. When Hanna and Spencer are arguing about what to do with the file, Aria grabs it and throws it into the water. After she finds out that Ezra got close to her for his book about Ali’s disappearance, she fills out a police report as a spiteful act of revenge, though she never files it. When Aria is suspicious about what’s going on with her parents, she runs straight into the school to get answers. When Ezra is directing a play, Aria asks him to be his stage manager so they can spend more time together, which Ezra immediately thinks is a bad idea, but Aria doesn’t care about the problems that might present. All she cares about is having the opportunity to be in his company. She doesn’t get worked up thinking about the future. “You have no idea what’s gonna happen tomorrow. Nobody does.” Aria signs up for self-defense classes and enjoys feeling empowered and in control of her environment. However, during her first lesson, she impulsively kisses her instructor after getting one of the moves down. She enjoys sensory hobbies and interests, such as music, photography, art, and fashion. She takes advantage of opportunities that arise in her environment. She volunteers at Radley to get information and she goes to Maggie’s classroom, pretending to be an undergraduate interested in teaching in order to satisfy her curiosity about Ezra’s ex. She’s highly aware of her surroundings and often uses them to form conclusions.

Tertiary Introverted Intuition [Ni]: When Aria has a hunch about something, she commits to the idea until it’s either proven, or proven to be incorrect. She doesn’t usually entertain multiple theories at once, and tends to stick with whatever she feels is most likely until the trail leads her to a dead end. Because Aria can see the deeper meaning in things, she’s convinced that Shana’s underlined passage from her copy of The Scarlet Letter is a reference to the fact that she’s “A”. Sometimes, Aria will convince herself that the worst-case scenario will come to fruition and acts on impulse to prevent it from happening. After the events that occurred in New York, Aria is afraid that “A” will tell the police what really happened. Aria’s first instinct is to go to the cabin in the woods to make it look like Ali had been hiding out there in order to substantiate their story. She believes that it is only a mater of time until they are inevitably caught by the police and can become quite pessimistic when forced to confront the future. Aria enjoys understanding the deeper meanings behind things and is quite analytical when it comes to books and movies. When the girls are putting together Ali’s memorial, she visualizes what people will think or feel when they see it. She says that she and her friends will be forgotten, but people will come there far into the future and, even though they won’t know Ali or what happened to her, she will be immortalized.

Inferior Extroverted Thinking [Te]: Aria doesn’t typically enact plans of her own. Rather, she tends to play a role in other people’s. Sometimes, when Aria is feeling stressed, she can fall into the grip of her inferior function and feel the need to do something, such as going to the cabin to make it look as though Ali had been living there in order to back up the lie they told. When Aria feels threatened or attacked, or loses control of her temper, she can be blunt, direct, and brutal. She is very cold towards Meredith and has no trouble telling her to stay away from her father. When Mona begins to get close to Aria’s brother, Aria really lets her have it, and Mona even makes a comment about Aria’s maliciousness. She has a tendency to become paranoid and suspicious of others, and can become combative and hostile under stress, often blurting out whatever she thinks or feels in the moment. When Aria kills Shana, she feels the need to do something to make it right. First, she wants to make a donation, and then she decides to go to Jenna in the aftermath to help her through it.

Note: I haven’t been able to bring myself to do a typing for Aria because of my tendency to go back and forth between INFP and ISFP for her. However, it seems that the third time watching the series was the charm, because I finally feel confident in declaring her an ISFP. I stand by what I’ve previously said about her. She’s a terribly written character, which makes typing her a serious pain. If you’re interested in reading my analysis of why typing her was a nearly impossible task, please feel free to read the article I posted here.

Enneagram: 4w3 Sx/Sp

Quotes:

Aria: I write, too, but so far it’s mostly personal… just for me.

Aria: Kind of lying here despondently right now, Spence.
Spencer: Well, can you just sit despondently? I need the bed.
Aria: No, lying is more despondent.

Ella: Well, sweetie, I was going to when you came over for dinner, but then you canceled on Monday… and Tuesday, and then on Wednesday.
Aria: Yeah, this week’s been intense.
Ella: I understand. I just, you know, I would like to see you in the flesh. But you don’t really plan on ever coming over, do you?
Aria: I can’t. Look, if I did, it’d be like saying I’m okay with you and dad living apart.
Ella: But we are.
Aria: I know! Just ’cause you were ready for this doesn’t mean that I am. I gotta get back to the library.

Aria: I just want to lay in my bed and listen to sad music all day.

Aria: Stop talking! There’s nothing you could say that would change the way I feel right now.

Mike: If your relationship is so much trouble, why not just let it go?
Aria: Look, when you love someone. It’s worth fighting for, no matter what the odds.

Aria: I know that you don’t want a friend right now, but that doesn’t mean that your friends don’t need you.

Aria: Look, we’re here now… …and it’s just the two of us. And it feels good. So let’s not care together.

Aria: We’re both here now. Can’t we just be happy we have that?

Ezra: Aria, let’s be real. We’re a lot more wrong than we are right.
Aria: You wanna be real? Forget about theory. What does it feel like? When we’re together?
Ezra: Good. It feels… right.

Spencer: He’s your boyfriend, Aria. He’s not a baby squirrel.
Aria: I was just trying to do the right thing.
Spencer: Totally wrong. Look, I’ve been there, I’ve done that. Every time you baby squirrel Ezra, you’re taking away his nuts.
Aria: You did not just say that.

Aria: That is it! I will kick her back to New York if I have to.
Spencer: Wait, Aria, stop. Before you do something you regret.
Aria: Spence, let go of me!
Spencer: There are teachers here. And parents – your parents.
Aria: I don’t care!

Spencer: [to Aria] That was a suicide mission and you know it.

Aria: You’re leaving because it’s easier to walk away than to fight for what you really want.

Aria: I just came here to say that I signed up For the play for all the wrong reasons, So I’m officially done. You’re right, it was a terrible idea.
Ezra: Aria-
Aria: But you were wrong, too… About the future. You have no idea What’s gonna happen tomorrow. Nobody does. My friend Alison, she didn’t. She didn’t get a future. She didn’t even get to turn 16.

Aria: Look, Hanna, I really hope that you find a hobby. And I hope you have a carefree senior year, Em. But I’ve got to find a way to live with what I did in New York. I can be sorry for her loss. All right? That’s what I can do.

Emily: [to Aria] You’re suppose to stop her from doing stupid things like this, not help.

Aria: You know, years from now, people are gonna see this memorial… …and that’s all they’ll ever know about Ali. She’ll be the girl that they dedicated the bench to. And we’ll all be gone, but Ali will still be remembered.

Sean: Did you get –
Aria: The flowers? Yeah. Don’t ever do that again.
Sean: I’m sorry, are you –
Aria: I’m one of Hanna’s best friends, Sean… The person you should be sending flowers to.
Sean: I was just saying thanks for –
Aria: No, you were saying ‘Screw you, Hanna.’
Sean: Okay, maybe I was, but can you blame me? She makes a big deal about going together, then bails.
Aria: Stop! Hanna loves you, and you know it. She hasn’t talked about any other guy since the seventh grade, and believe me, it’s boring how much she loves you. Why would you want to hurt her?

Hanna: This was Shana’s.
Aria: What?
Hanna: Let’s just put it back.
Aria: No, no, no. Hold on a second. Oh my God, look what she underlined. “It is a curious subject whether hatred and love be not the same thing at bottom. Each leaves the passionate lover, or the no less passionate hater, forlorn and desolate by the withdrawal of his subject.”
Hanna: Aria, it’s probably just a school assignment.
Aria: No, this is about Ali and Jenna and us. This is about being ‘A.’
Hanna: No, this is about you trying to paw through Shana’s things when you should be trying to forget about her.
Aria: Well, there might be something in here.
Hanna: Just stop.

Aria: Shana wasn’t “A.” I killed an innocent person.
Ezra: Shana wasn’t innocent, Aria.
Aria: Yeah, but the cops aren’t gonna believe that when they find out how long I’ve been covering this up. And it’s only a matter of time before “A” exposes what I did.

Aria: Look, Ezra, what happened the other night…
Ezra: Felt right, didn’t it?
Aria: It doesn’t mean that things can go back to the way that they were.
Ezra: So what does it mean?
Aria: Oh, I’m not gonna pretend like I don’t miss it, us, because I do.
Ezra: I do, too.
Aria: Yeah, but then I remember everything that happened and how we met, all the lies that you told.
Ezra: Believe me, I wish I could go back and change things.
Aria: But you can’t. And the other night was a mistake.

Simone: Your mom tells me you kept quite an intense journal, while you were away.

Aria: I try not to look back, but if there’s anything that I could change it would be that night.

Aria: Guys, please, enough with Jason for a minute. Mona knows that we were in New York. Don’t you understand? Okay, it’s only a matter of time before she runs out of whistles and start tearing our balloons and say Aria killed Shana.
Hanna: Okay, whistles?
Emily: Aria, stop. Okay. Mona does not know about Shana.
Aria: Then who does? Who? Who is screwing with me? And you keep me telling me that “A” is dead.
Hanna: “A” is dead, Aria.
Aria: Then why am I hearing a violin in my backyard? Who’s the fiddler on my freaking roof?

[throwing the file into the water]
Aria: There! It’s done! Okay? We never saw it. We don’t even know it exists. Can we leave now? Please?

Emily: Aria. Sorry. I didn’t mean to scare you. Just got your text… I was with Ali. What are you doing?
Aria: If we’ve been out here hiding her for a month it sure as hell needs start looking like it.
Emily: Seriously, you can’t do this right now.
Aria: Yeah, you’re right. We should have been out here last night filling this place with crap after Alison got that text. Oh, and thank you for keeping me in the dark about that. What am I? Your child?
Emily: We only did that because you were such a mess when your dad came to the police station.
Aria: Yeah and what? What you thought if I got a good night’s sleep, I’d just wake up in candy land?
Emily: Okay, Aria calm down. That text wasn’t from “A”.
Aria: How do you know that?
Emily: Because I was there when Shana-slash-A was killed. Look… Spencer was right. It’s one thing not to contradict Ali’s story and it’s another to add to it. We can’t go down that rabbit hole again.
Aria: Yeah, well, I can’t do nothing, all right? Because if “A” knows that I took down Shana..
Emily: Aria…
Aria: I’m gonna be the…
Emily: Shana had been using us as target practice for months, what you did was purely self-defense.
Aria: It doesn’t matter. Someone is dead. All right, and she will never be able to recover or apologize or even graduate from high school because I killed her. I killed her, Emily, and I don’t know how I’m gonna be able to live with that. (breathes heavily)
Emily: Aria… in that moment, it was you or her. I went through this after… Nate. You think that no one can understand what this feels like, but I’ve been there.

Aria: Hey. Oh, my God. Guys. She is seriously freaking me out. She knows that we were in New York. She threatened Ali. What if she knows about Shana, too?
Spencer: Aria, look, you need to take a psychological selfie right now. You’re letting your paranoia get the better of you.
Aria: Really? How do you know that all this isn’t all about Shana?
Spencer: Because it’s not. It’s all about Ali. I’ve been fielding questions about her all day.

Aria: Hi. Sorry, it was really stupid of me not to call.
Ezra: No, it’s okay. Is everything all right? Sit down, sit down.
Aria: I can’t stop thinking about Shana’s family. I mean, every time I close my eyes all I can see is her grandmother and just how destroyed and how empty she looked at her funeral.
Ezra: How did you know what she looked like at the funeral?
Aria: ‘Cause I watched it online, many times.
Ezra: Aria, you’re just going to have to find a way to forgive yourself.

Aria: Oh, I’m just a friend. I wasn’t able to send flowers so I was wondering if I could donate to the cost of the service.
Woman: Well, her grandmother’s been a member of our congregation for a long time. I’m certain she would want to thank you for your…
Aria; Oh, no, no, I’d really, really rather the donation be anonymous. Is it possible to send cash?

Aria: Okay, we need to get these boxes out of here right now.
Ezra: Okay, let’s just slow down a second here.
Aria: Tanner’s probably on her way back here with a search warrant.
Ezra: She’s not on her way back here.
Aria: How can you say that? I mean she basically said she knows that Shana was the one that shot you.
Ezra: Well, then why would she want to search my place?
Aria: ‘Cause she knows that you’re hiding something, that’s why.
Ezra: Well, she’s gonna need a whole lot more than suspicion to get a search warrant.
Aria: If she does come back, she’s gonna find proof that you were lying about how well you knew Shana and that Ali wasn’t kidnapped.
Ezra: I guess I could move this stuff into my storage unit.
Aria: Wait, no. No, because if it’s registered in your name they’re just gonna search that, too. Hmm, okay, let’s just put everything in my attic until we find a better place. My dad’s in Syracuse until Sunday.
Ezra: Okay. That’s a good idea. Oh, what is this?
Aria: Oh, my God, I think that’s supposed to be Mrs. DiLaurentis.
Ezra: How can you tell?
Aria: I mean that’s her house. She was obsessed with her roses. And she definitely wore scarves like that.
Ezra: Bethany.
Aria: How many Bethanys do you know?
Ezra: Just one. And she was buried in Mrs. DiLaurentis’ backyard.
Aria: Ezra, who would want you to have this?
Ezra: Why?
Aria: My money’s on “A”.

Nick Clark (Fear the Walking Dead): ISFP


Dominant Introverted Feeling [Fi]: Nick believes in morality, and his high Fi can sometimes clash with his mother’s inferior Fi. He usually wants to do the right thing. While Madison’s main concern is self-preservation and protecting her family, Nick wants to help people in need. He wants to go warn his neighbor about what’s happening, but Madison’s main concern is herself, her boyfriend, and her children. After he discovers Celia’s death , he decides he would rather survive on his own than stay with Madison because they “destroy everything.” Nick internalizes a lot of his feelings, and, instead of talking about them with other people, he acts (Fi-Te). He has a lot of complex emotions in the wake of his father’s death, and instead of seeking help, he turns back to drugs. When he eventually kicks his habit, Nick is shown to be a selfless, kind-hearted person with a genuine desire to help others.

Auxiliary Extroverted Sensing [Se]: One of Nick’s primary attributes is his resourcefulness. He notices the world around him and uses his observations in order to act. Nick sees potential in his environment, which makes him a skilled survivalist. When he is out on his own, he survives by getting nourishment from a cactus and by drinking his own urine. When he’s injured, he is able to take the belt from one of the infected and fashion a makeshift tourniquet. Nick is good at thinking quickly in the moment. He uses whatever is available to his advantage. He’s adaptable and able to adjust to the new world with ease. As a matter of fact, he thrives in it. From the very beginning, he has consistently proven himself capable of dealing with the harsh reality of life after the apocalypse. He was able to spot the gun on Calvin, realize what was happening, fight him off, and kill him. He remembers that the neighbors have a shotgun and he and his family go to take it. He actually does a lot better for himself following the outbreak than he was prior to it. As he kicks his drug habit, Nick seems to substitute heroin for putting himself in dangerous situations. He doesn’t seem to mind taking risks or making impulsive decisions in the moment. He’s the first one to realize that being covered in the blood of the infected allows him to move through hoards of them undetected.

Tertiary Introverted Intuition [Ni]: Instead of coming up with a variety of ideas, Nick tends to lean towards singular truths. He’s the first one to realize that the “infected” aren’t actually infected, but dead. When Nick reaches a conclusion about something, he sticks to it and rarely changes his mind. Before the outbreak, Nick seemed to be pretty aimless in life. He had been kicked out of college and did anything for a fix with little concern for his future. However, once the world went to hell, he seemed to find his place in it. His main mission is survival and keeping the people that he cares about safe, which has given him a newfound purpose in life. Nick’s intuition can be very good and he often trusts it completely. When he came face-to-face with the infected, he wasn’t afraid. He knew that he wasn’t going to die with absolute certainty.

Inferior Extroverted Thinking [Te]: When Nick explains himself, he does so in a direct, concise manner. Nick is better suited for life after the world begins to collapse around him. He isn’t really built for structure and society. Nick wasn’t able to keep his life on track before, but is able to truly shine once the former way of living is dismantled.

Note: Nick is a clear IxFP. The general consensus seems to be a pretty even split between INFP and ISFP, but I just think that he’s too grounded and present in the moment to be an INFP. He doesn’t really entertain possibilities, think about the future, speculate, or theorize about anything. He tends to just respond in the moment to whatever is happening.

Nick Clark: She’s not sick. She’s dead.
Travis: Why would you say that?
Nick Clark: Cause it’s the truth.

Alejandro: Luciana tells me you did as we discussed. You were cautious at the Pelicano.

Alejandro: Better your balls than your head. You were surviving.
Nick Clark: Surviving feels like eating shit.
Alejandro: [Alejandro smiles] You’ll get used to it.

Nick Clark: Coulda, shoulda, woulda. Story of my life.

Alejandro: Strange. Luciana said you were brave.

Nick Clark: No planes. No pollution. No smog. Just stars.
Alicia Clark: Yep, well, we definitely stopped the climate crisis. Awesome.

Nick Clark: More people are gonna die. More die, more leave the Colonia.
Nick Clark: [Reynaldo chuckles] What’s so funny?
Reynaldo (Scout): Americans. You love to fix others’ problems.
Nick Clark: I just give a shit, okay?

Nick Clark: When I was on the beach, I came face-to-face with one of them and I didn’t feel fear, I didn’t feel hate. I just knew I wasn’t going to die. Not there, not that way. I move among them, Mom. Invisible. I will not die.

Alejandro: What is it you think you saw, Nick?
Nick Clark: I saw you afraid. Yesterday, you were afraid of people leaving. Today, you’re afraid of that bite.
Alejandro: I was shaken. There’s a difference.
Nick Clark: You’re lying. You’re petrified.

Gloria: Is it good?
Nick Clark: My dad gave it to me.
Gloria: He gave you a lot of books.
Nick Clark: It was his way of connecting.
Gloria: But is it good?
Nick Clark: It reminds me of him. It’s just a lot of people feeling shit and not saying anything about it.

Alejandro: You believe you’re safe amongst them. You may be right. But you’re never safe with the Marcos of the world, the men with guns. But you still like being out there. You’re desperate for it and that scares me for you.
Nick Clark: Why? You sound like my mother.
Alejandro: I’m trying to be anything but. I’m not asking you not to go. I need you to go. Everyone here needs you to go. I’m asking you to be careful. Brave but careful. ‘Cause I want you to come back.
Nick Clark: Well, thank you.
Alejandro: For what?
Nick Clark: For giving a shit.

Nick Clark: If I had known this was gonna happen, I’d have taken Spanish in high school.
Luciana: What did you take?
Nick Clark: Uh, just myself very seriously.

Nick Clark: You don’t survive a bite.
Alejandro: Oh, you don’t believe I was bitten?
Nick Clark: Um… I don’t believe in miracles.
Alejandro: Miracle is your word.
Nick Clark: What would you call it?
Alejandro: A leap of faith.
Nick Clark: Yeah, I have trouble with those, too.

[in a flashback, Gloria tries to help Nick practice on expressing his feelings]
Gloria: So after your three weeks in rehab, Nick, exploring your thoughts and feelings about your drug use, are there things you need to say to me?
Nick Clark: You?
Gloria: Pretend I’m your dad.
Nick Clark: Start with my mom.
Gloria: Why?
Nick Clark: She’s like a school counselor. She has degrees in this shit. My dad…
Gloria: What?
Nick Clark: He wouldn’t hurt a fly.

Nick Clark: You’re always tired when you get home from work. You just skip dinner and go to your room. And if I go in there to talk to you, it’s like you do listen and I can tell you hear me, but it’s not like you’re there. You used to be there. And then you stopped. And I don’t know why you did that. [Nick pauses before continuing] Fathers are supposed to show sons how to be a man in the world, but I guess the world is too much for you.

[Madison holds up one of Nick’s Oxycontin pills as he lays in the pool rejecting to take them]
Nick Clark: Look, give it to Griselda. She needs it more than I do, you said it yourself.
Madison Clark: I know what I said, but the point is to wean you off of it slowly. So it just doesn’t, you know, happen again.
Nick Clark: I thought you’d be happy.
Madison Clark: I am happy, I just… Okay, well, if you need it, it’s right here. Don’t be a hero.
Nick Clark: No chance of that.

[Alejandro questions Nick about stealing from Marco]
Alejandro: I hear you almost started a war over a Gansito.
Nick Clark: That girl’s father died today. I just thought she might need something.
Alejandro: And what did you think she needed?
Nick Clark: Something. Anything. Comfort.
Alejandro: If it’s comfort you want to offer, you’re going to need more cake.

Jeremy Gilbert (The Vampire Diaries): ISFP


Dominant Introverted Feeling [Fi]: Jeremy internalizes his feelings and doesn’t really like to discuss them. Instead, he acts out. After the death of his parents, he turns to alcohol and drugs to numb the pain (Fi-Se). He stops after losing Vicki, but when Anna is killed, he overdoses on pills with vampire blood in his system, hoping that it will turn him into, so he can turn off his humanity and not have to deal with the pain anymore. His feelings are private and intense. He doesn’t want to open up to Elena about what he’s going through, and tends to be rude to her instead. Jeremy quickly and easily forges one-on-one emotional connections with others. He cares very deeply about the people in his life and wants to protect them. Eventually, Jeremy develops a resentment for all vampires due to the actions of the ones in his life, and begins to see things in a black-and-white sort of way (Vampires are bad. They’re the cause of all our problems.) He imposes his belief system on others and forcibly removes Elena from Mystic Falls in order to keep her safe from them (though, this is exacerbated once he becomes a member of The Five, and has little control over his instincts). When he’s able to interact with Anna again after her death, he enjoys the moment with her, even though he’s dating Bonnie, and even kisses her, which he knows is wrong, but he does it anyway because he loved her and she was taken from him, which, to him, justifies his actions (Fi-Se). Jeremy knows that he wants to stand for something and have a purpose, but he struggles to figure out what that purpose is. He often feels lonely, lost, and like he doesn’t really belong. He feels like an outcast and has a difficult time fitting in.

Auxiliary Extroverted Sensing [Se]: Sometimes, Jeremy engages in short-sighted, reckless behavior that puts himself at risk. He dealt with the pain of Anna’s death by trying to become a vampire, which didn’t work. He makes the dangerous decision to expose Anna as a vampire by cutting his hand open in front of her. He can see that she’s interested in him and uses her affections to manipulate her into turning him (though, she doesn’t realize it’s for Vicki and not to be with her (Se-Ni). Jeremy is very physically aware and has good reflexes, which further develop after he becomes a hunter. Jeremy is a gifted artist and uses that as a form of expression (Fi-Se). He draws things that he’s experiencing in his real life. His sketchbook was filled with drawings of werewolf-like creatures. Jeremy can be extremely brave and daring. When a hybrid is outside his front door, he beheads it without hesitation, even though he’s never really done anything like that before then.

Tertiary Introverted Intuition [Ni]: It doesn’t appear as though Jeremy really has any serious long-term plans and he doesn’t seem to spend much time thinking about his future. However, he can be quite skilled at making intuitive leaps that turn out to be correct. When Jeremy sees Anna’s face change, he immediately goes on his computer and researches vampires. He takes what he observes in his external environment (Se) and forms singular conclusions based on what he notices, and acts on it. Jeremy didn’t come up with multiple theories about Anna. He jumped straight to “vampire” and fully believed in his assessment of the situation. After discovering the truth, Jeremy attempts to manipulate Anna into turning him.

Inferior Extroverted Thinking [Te]: It can be very difficult for Jeremy to make decisions. When he’s able to see and communicate with Vicki and Anna again, it strains his relationship with Bonnie. He’s not particularly skilled at formulating plans. He’s a part of the plans, but he doesn’t typically develop them. Even when Jeremy does make plans, he can sometimes second guess his choices and not go through with them, such as when he had planned to kill Damon by spiking his drink with vervain. He realizes that killing Damon won’t solve anything and calls it off. When Jeremy is pushed, he can be blunt, direct, and brutal. He’ll tell it exactly like it is, regardless of other people’s feelings. When Jeremy isn’t so caught up in his feelings, he can buckle down and get things done. When Elena had Damon erase his memory of what happened to Vicki, he began making more of an effort at school and started taking his assignments seriously.

Enneagram: 4w5 Sx/Sp

Quotes:

Anna: You were basically using me to turn you into a vampire so you could be with someone else.
Jeremy: No, I wasn’t using you.
Anna: Really? Then, how would you like to define it?
Jeremy: [scoffs] I don’t think it’s any worse than becoming friends with me so we could give your mother my blood.
Anna: How do you know that?
Jeremy: It’s not important.
Anna: Seriously, Jeremy. What do you know?
Jeremy: Everything. I know everything.

Anna: You’re missing Elena’s introduction.
Jeremy: I don’t care.
Anna: So she has no idea you read her journal?
Jeremy: Well, she keeps things from me, I’m gonna keep things from her.
Anna: What are you gonna do now? Now that you know everything she’s been hiding from you?
Jeremy: I don’t know. There’s a part of me that’s so angry. How she covered up what happened to Vicki and, and erased my memory, but there’s also this other part that’s glad. I… I don’t wanna remember Vicki like that.
Anna: As a monster?
Jeremy: No. As someone who wanted to hurt me.
Anna: When I met you, you were just a part of my plan to get my mother back. But then things changed. All the time we spent together. I would never do anything to hurt you. Not now. You know that, right?
Jeremy: Yeah, I know that.

Stefan: Call me with whatever you find.
Jeremy: No. No, I’m coming with you.
Stefan: No Jeremy. You’re not.
Jeremy: I’m not just gonna sit here while she’s hurt or worse. What if she’s…
Stefan: She’s not. You two go back to your house incase and I’ll call you the minute I find her.
Jeremy: Well, you can’t do this alone.
Damon: [Walks through the door] He’s not. Let’s go.
Stefan: You coming with me?
Damon: It’s Elena.

Bonnie: It’s hard, you know. My Grams is gone and my dad doesn’t want to know what I am. He hasn’t since my mom left. I’m all alone in this.
Jeremy: That’s how I feel a lot of the time. Alone.

Jeremy: So, I have an answer.
Anna: To what?
Jeremy: Why you should turn me.
Anna: We’re back to that?
Jeremy: Look. I wake up every day and I feel okay, but there’s something missing. Like a… like a hole. Some people, they fit. In life or whatever. I, I don’t.
Anna: So, you want a pity turn. I don’t think so.
Jeremy: No, you should turn me because I don’t have anything else.
Anna: Do you even know why we turn other people? It’s not to give someone a one-way ticket out of lonerhood. Okay? One, we need someone to do our dirty work. Two, revenge. Three, boredom, but you know that never turns out well. And then, you know, there’s the obvious one. You love someone so much that you would do anything to spend all of eternity with them. I’m sorry but you don’t fit any of those categories yet.

Jeremy: I actually have to write another paper. I was thinking about squeezing in one more out on the vampires of Mystic Falls.
Anna: Really? Haven’t you exhausted the subject?
Jeremy: No. No, I wanna go deeper, you know? I wanna understand why people were labeled as vampires back in the day. I mean, maybe there is such a thing as vampires. They’re just different from the way we always thought they were.
Anna: What do you mean?
Jeremy: Well, uh, maybe they’re normal… and good. Just outsiders, you know? Um, misunderstood.

Jeremy: Why didn’t you… kill me?
Anna: I don’t know. Maybe I’m a sucker for guys like you.
Jeremy: Like what?
Anna: Lost. But why would you confront me about it? Why would you risk it?
Jeremy: Because if it was true, maybe… I don’t know. Maybe it’s true about Vicki. And also because… I want you to turn me.

Jeremy: Wanna keep it down over there?
Jenna: Why, what are you doing?
Jeremy: Homework.
Elena: Since when do you do homework?
Jeremy: I gotta finish this. I’m way behind, and I have a quiz tomorrow, so…
Elena: What do you think… alien?
Jenna: Some sort of replicant.
Jeremy: He can hear you.

Jeremy: Look, I’m sorry about your dad.
Tyler: Today’s been a big day of sorry’s from people who really don’t give a crap.
Jeremy: I remember when my dad died, I had a houseful of strangers telling me what a great guy he was. Anyway I know how hard all this is.

Jeremy: [about Anna] I can touch her, Elena. I can kiss her again. And I know it’s wrong and I know that I shouldn’t feel this way, but I do. I love her. I’ve always loved her.
Elena Gilbert: But it’s not real. She’s dead. Gone. Everything that you’re holding onto is in the past, Jer. Are you gonna love a ghost for the rest of your life?

Jeremy: You realise you had to ask him, to ask you, don’t you? You figure that if you dress up like a respectable young lady he’ll finally treat you like one?

Jeremy: I don’t know why this is happening, or when it’s gonna stop. But before it’s done, I have to do this.” [Kisses Anna]

Jeremy: I shot a hybrid in the back and chopped his head off with a meat cleaver. Typical Sunday, huh?

Damon: [to Jeremy] Your search for life’s purpose is as obvious as it is tragic.

Jeremy: We saw an opportunity and we knew we had to take it.

Jeremy: She’s gonna pay, Elena. I don’t know how, but she’s gonna pay.

Jeremy: She tried to kill Jenna. We can’t let her get away with that.

Jeremy: My father hated vampires. My uncle too. They absolutely knew exactly what they stood for. I figured maybe I should too, I mean, stand for something. But killing you… what’s that going to do?

Damon: What the hell are you doing here?
Jeremy: You don’t lock your front door.
Damon: Yeah. [starts to take a drink]
Jeremy: I wouldn’t, I– I laced it with vervain.
Damon: Now why would you do that?
Jeremy: [holds up wooden stake] So I could stake you with this.
Damon: You came here to kill me?
Jeremy: Well, it’s only fair. You killed me first.
Damon: What made you wisen up?
Jeremy: My father hated vampires. My uncle, too. They were absolute; they knew exactly what they stood for. I figure maybe I should, too. I mean, stand for something. But killing you – what’s that gonna do?
Damon: Look, I don’t do the big brother thing very well. Sorry I don’t have any milk and cookies to offer you.
Jeremy: [gets up to leave] Dick.
Damon: Wait. [Jeremy stops] …My father hated vampires, too. For the same reason yours did. Only it was 1864; people knew how to whittle. [looks at the stake] Did you do this?
Jeremy: Yeah, it’s– it’s harder than it looks.
Damon: Hmm.

Jeremy: I don’t need an escort to my room.
Bonnie: I don’t know – between here and upstairs, there’s still time for you do something stupid!

Marissa Cooper (The O.C.): ISFP


Dominant Introverted Feeling [Fi]: Marissa is an emotional typhoon. Her feelings are deep and intense. She needs to deal with her emotions on her own before she can open up about them. Usually, she just acts out instead of talking about what’s going on. When Julie asks her what’s bothering her, instead of opening up and having an honest discussion, Marissa begins to scream at the top of her lungs while throwing lawn furniture into the pool. The thought of talking to a counselor about her feelings is hell for her. Instead, she spends a lot of her time sorting through her feelings at the lifeguard tower. Marissa enjoys making one-on-one connections with people and likes to feel like she’s making a difference in someone’s life. However, because Marissa is so unhealthy and usually caught up in her own emotional turmoil, she isn’t great at picking up on other people’s true feelings. When she meets Oliver, she knows that he is troubled, but fails to see through his lies and doesn’t realize that he has become obsessed with her (even though Ryan, Luke, and Summer can all tell that he has a thing for her). Marissa is unable to see the truth and gets angry with Ryan when he tries to warn her, leading the two to break up. Later, she also fails to recognize the signs that Johnny is in love with her. When he gets hit by a car, she’s very attentive and constantly goes out of her way to help him. Due to her emotional instability, Marissa experiences high highs and low lows. She is extremely rebellious and enjoys getting a rise out of her mother, who she views as shallow and materialistic. Though Marissa is an emotionally turbulent person, she’s very caring and considerate. Even though she’s still in love with Ryan, she’s very kind and generous to Theresa when he starts seeing her again, even lending her a dress for a party. When Ryan’s older brother, Trey, is released from prison after attempting to steal a car, Marissa tries to help him reintegrate into society. At a party, Marissa watches as two guys lead an extremely intoxicated Heather (a girl who has been nothing but cruel to Marissa) outside. She immediately becomes concerned about their intentions, follows the group outside, and sees that two of the guys are standing outside of a van, with Heather nowhere in sight. Thinking quickly, Marissa claims she left her jacket in the van, but when the guys try to keep Marissa away, she charges past them and opens the door to find a third guy on top of the unconscious girl, her pants removed. Horrified by what she’s seeing, Marissa quickly rescues her before they have a chance to rape her (Fi-Se). When Marissa tries to write her college essay about a past trauma, she struggles to put her feelings into words and becomes deeply frustrated.

Auxiliary Extroverted Sensing [Se]: One of Marissa’s biggest issues is her tendency to make reckless, short-sighted decisions. She deals with her problems by acting. Marissa lives in the present and her reckless behavior can often get her into trouble. She parties and drinks excessively, shoplifts, jumps into relationships, overdoses in Mexico, and makes all sorts of poor, self-destructive decisions. Though she’s still in love with Ryan, Marissa engages in relationships with D.J. (“the yard guy”), which she knows will drive her mother insane, as well as a lesbian relationship with Alex. When she finds out about her mother’s affair with Luke, her first boyfriend and the guy she lost her virginity to, she acts out once again by running away to Chino When Ryan goes back to Chino to help Theresa with the baby, she internalizes her grief and resorts to heavy drinking (Fi-Se). Marissa is good at seeing opportunities and using them to her advantage. After she finds out about her mom and Luke, she uses this information as leverage, blackmailing her to get out of therapy and out of Julie’s house. When Trey attempts to rape Marissa, she fights him off, and, noticing a nearby log, hits him over the head with it, which gives her the time she needs to run away. After Ryan finds out what he tried to do, he goes to Trey’s apartment and the two get into a violent fist fight. Marissa shows up to try to stop it, but Trey gets the upper hand and, before he has a chance to beat Ryan to death, Marissa picks up a gun and shoots him. When Johnny dies, Marissa finds herself in a state of grief once again, and as a result, enters into a volatile relationship with Kevin Volchok, a hard partying, bad-tempered delinquent, which leads Marissa to make a lot of bad choices, such as abusing alcohol and trying cocaine. Though Marissa can be private and unhappy with the society she lives in, she knows how to engage with it when she wants to. She’s very outgoing and has a lot of friends (though, she doesn’t connect deeply with the majority of them). During high school, she even holds the position of social chair. Though Marissa is critical of her mom’s materialism and concern with social status, Marissa is always impeccably dressed and, when her father moves into an apartment following his financial woes, tries to downplay the severity of the situation because a part of her does care about appearances.

Tertiary Introverted Intuition [Ni]: Marissa isn’t goal-oriented and doesn’t really think too far ahead. She sometimes struggles to commit to things or make long-term decisions. Even though she is accepted to Berkeley, she comes to the conclusion that she’s not ready for college and instead chooses to take some time off to work with her father on a boat. Sometimes, Marissa can be insightful and is able to tell what’s really going on beneath the surface, but she has trouble following her intuition and comes up with alternative explanations when there seemingly obvious warning signs right in front of her. She’s not great at sensing manipulation or deception, as evidenced by the Oliver situation. Marissa’s tertiary function is quite underdeveloped, which is probably due to a combination of emotional instability and her desire to be helpful to people she establishes connections with. Many of Marissa’s goals are rooted in her Fi. She has a bit of a savior complex, believing she can help others in their time of need, even at her own personal expense. She can become so focused on trying to mend the parade of damaged people that enter her life that she often neglects her preexisting relationships (Fi-Ni).

Inferior Extroverted Thinking [Te]: As Harbor’s social chair, Marissa is charged with planning and executing many parties, fundraisers, dances, and events. When she wants to, she can be good at organizing and getting the job done. Marissa can be very harsh when she’s lashing out at someone. However, as Marissa’s personal issues deepen, she tries to avoid being in charge of events. She isn’t great at controlling her external world, and prefers to just go with the flow. She is very critical of her external world and rebels the shallow phoniness of Newport. She doesn’t want to be a part of the system she was born into and refuses to assimilate the way her peers do. She loathes the idea of abiding by Newport society’s rules and standards.

Marissa: I’m angry.

Luke: We need to talk, Marissa.

Luke: I know— I know. And I’m so sorry.
Marissa: I don’t care! I don’t care how you feel or what you’re going through. Because you sure as hell didn’t care about me.
Luke: That’s not true.
Marissa: I slept with you. And then you went and slept with one of my best friends. I waited for you and you lied to me. You humiliated me.

Alex: Screw it. I’m a huge fan of spontaneous first dates.
Marissa: I am too.

Marissa: Look, Luke and I got in a fight last night, okay?
Julie: So you got into a fight. You’ve had fights before. You guys have been together forever.
Marissa: Maybe that’s the problem. I mean, what if there’s someone else out there?
Julie: Like who, that boy from Chino? Marissa, do you want to end up like your Aunt Cindy, with four kids in a trailer park? She broke my mother’s heart. I will not let you break mine.
Marissa: Oh, so now this is about you?

Seth: No wait, listen to me. This wouldn’t be just an ordinary bar mitzvah, you know what this would be? Wait for it… wait… A Chrismuckkah Bar mitzvahkkah. Spell that dude!
Ryan: That’s crazy.
Seth: Yeah? So crazy that it just might work.
Marissa: So we throw a big party…
Summer: And Ryan gets the money from the bar mitzvah?
Marissa: And then we can spend the money for Johnny’s surgery.
Ryan: How’s this going to work? Am I just gonna stand in front of Newport and sing in Hebrew?
Seth: You chant, and hell yes.

Marissa: Well, if it isn’t the wicked witch of the west coast.
Julie: Are you drunk?
[to D.J]
Julie: Let me guess: tequila?
D.J.: She was like this when I picked her up.
Marissa: You don’t have to defend youself to her.
Julie: No, but you do young lady!
Marissa: Come on, let’s go D.J. before she tries to sleep with you next.
Julie: What did you say?
Marissa: You heard me you whore! You know let’s do it. Let’s tell everyone right here!
[to Jimmy]
Marissa: You know, let’s tell everyone why you’re leaving Dad. Why don’t you tell everyone why you’re leaving?
Julie: Marissa…
Marissa: Get off me!
Julie:[to Jimmy] You see what you’re leaving me with? You see how screwed up she is?
Marissa: Of course I’m screwed up! I’m the daughter of a thief and a slut! I just hate you both so much!

Marissa: Mom wants to take me with her to cardio. She thinks it’s another way we can “bond”. I almost want to go, so I can work out and get strong enough to kick her ass.
Summer: Marissa, do you really think you should be going to cardio? Do you really need it?
Marissa: What’s that supposed to mean?
Summer: No offense, and I really mean this in as a good thing, but you have gotten very thin recently.
Marissa: I eat.
[Summer takes a sip on her drink and almost chokes]
Summer: Uh, and you apparently drink too! What’s in this? Lighter fluid?
Marissa: [takes a sip without blinking an eye] It’s my own drink. I call it a Newport iced tea.
Summer: It’s ten o’clock in the morning. It’s a little too early to be drinking.
Marissa: For who?

Summer: Did you spike your latte?
Marissa: It’s been a weird day.
Summer: Marissa, we’re at school.
Marissa: Yeah. Exactly.

Marissa: Come on, I can’t wait for you to see the rest of the house. And my mom’s face when she sees you in it.

Julie: So listen, Riviera Magazine wants to do a big photospread on us. Now I think it’s a great opportunity for us to demonstrate the resilience and strength of this family. It’s wonderful exposure.
Marissa: Any chance to expose yourself, huh?
Julie: Promise you’ll be here, you’ll wear something Marc Jacobs and you won’t be off with your boyfriend.

Dean Hess: You almost killed another kid. I don’t even hear a hint of remorse in your voice.
Marissa: Because I don’t have any. I’m proud of what I did and I’d do it again.

Marissa: Dad, look, I don’t know what kind of trouble you’re in, but if you have to go, then go. But if you leave, then I don’t want you to come back. It’s too hard to keep saying goodbye like this.

Marissa: Thanks. I really don’t know why she’s got it in for me.
Casey: My guess is the bag. And the shoes. And the Chanel necklace probably isn’t helping either, but it’s just a guess. Anyways, welcome to Newport Union. I’m Casey.
Marissa: Marissa. Cooper. You’re the first nice person I’ve actually met.
Casey: And I’m not even that nice.

Marissa: I’m sorry for all the craziness.
Ryan: I wouldn’t have done it any differently. Except maybe Oliver.

Marissa: Believe me, if there was something I could do, I would.
Seth: Yeah, well, I think you’ve done enough, so…
Marissa: What does that mean?
Seth: I just don’t think even Ryan would be back with Theresa if it weren’t for you and Oliver in the first place.
Summer: Cohen!
Seth: Really. All you ever did was drag that kid into your messed-up life.

Summer: So Ryan just like punched him for no reason?
Marissa: Well that’s what Ryan does. He punches people. He doesn’t talk to them. And he doesn’t listen.
Summer: Okay, well he had to have a reason though. I mean Ryan’s violent but he’s not stupid.
Marissa: I don’t know. He thinks Oliver’s in love with me or something.
Summer: Well isn’t he?

Marissa: Are you okay? You know he was just playing.
Ryan: I’m fine.
Luke: That guy was not playing.

Marissa: You don’t have a problem with Oliver, do you?
Ryan: Nah. I mean, guy shows up out of nowhere and suddenly he’s hanging around all the time.
Marissa: Yeah. A guy shows up out of the blue. Knows no one, abandoned by his family. Sound familiar?
Ryan: A little bit.
Marissa: Look. You did something nice for him and now he wants to repay you.


Archie Andrews (Riverdale): ISFP


Dominant Introverted Feeling [Fi]: Doing the right thing is important to Archie. He has a very strong moral compass and has a lot of integrity. He wants to go to the sheriff about what he heard on the day Jason Blossom was supposedly killed, even though it might expose his inappropriate relationship with Ms. Grundy. Archie is true to himself, no matter what other people might think. He decides to pursue his music, even though certain people in his life appear to disapprove. When he has a decision to make, he thinks it over and, while he does listen to the opinions of other people, at the end of the day, he follows his heart and his own judgment about things. He cares very much about the people in his life, and though he doesn’t typically discuss his feelings, he shows it by being very protective of them.

Auxiliary Extroverted Sensing [Se]: Archie has good control over his body, using it to play the guitar, sing, and play football. Archie lives in the moment and doesn’t typically think in the long-term. He impulsively kisses Veronica without stopping to think about how his actions will hurt Betty. He also begins a relationship with a teacher over the summer, but doesn’t consider the consequences. Archie also doesn’t seem to consider what will happen when school starts up. When Cheryl attempts to commit suicide, Archie reacts immediately, running out onto the frozen river. When she lets herself fall in, he quickly works to locate her, punches through the ice, and carries her away.

Tertiary Introverted Intuition [Ni]: Although Archie doesn’t always plan for the future, he does have a sense of vision. He wants to pursue music. He writes songs, tries to get Josie and the Pussycats to help him, and works toward this goal, despite the odds. He knows what he wants and he’s willing to fight for it. Music is where his heart is, but he also knows that being on the football team will help him get a scholarship, and, even though it isn’t his number one priority, he continues to play because of the future opportunities it can provide him.

Inferior Extroverted Thinking [Te]: Archie wants to enter a creative field. He has no desire to take over the family construction business. He has a difficult time focusing when he decides to pick up music in addition to football. He has to write plays down on his arm, which doesn’t even help much, as he is still confused during practice. He has a hard time managing his time and struggles to juggle his tasks. Archie has a very hard time taking criticism and begins to doubt his abilities when Oscar Castillo turns him down. He has to put a great deal of effort into staying on track, as it doesn’t come easily for him. Archie can prioritize at times, though. He realizes he can’t manage football and music and when his football coach offers him the position of team captain, Archie decides to turn it down to focus on his music.
