Abe Weissman (The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel): ISTJ

Dominant Introverted Sensing [Si]: Abe is a creature of habit. He has his routine and greatly resents having it disrupted. He always reads in this room after dinner, so Ethan cannot have the television on in there! The thought of reading in a different room is simply absurd to him. Abe doesn’t enjoy compromising and wants things to be exactly as he’s used to. “This is how I live my life” and that’s that. He refuses to get a second television to put in Midge’s room because he’s not the sort of man who has two TVs. Abe is big on making comparisons. When he was Ethan’s age, he could re-sole a shoe. Abe is extremely traditional and the thought of Midge and Joel separating is simply unacceptable. She’ll just have to figure out a way to win him back. They can’t possibly get divorced. Abe uses things he’s seen or heard in the past in oder to handle situations in the present. If this way of completing a task worked in that situation, we can easily just apply it again now and get the same results.

Auxiliary Extroverted Thinking [Te]: It’s important for Abe to be efficient and pragmatic. He’s unable to sit back and watch people do things the wrong way when he knows the quickest and easiest way of accomplishing a task. When he overhears Midge and Imogene struggling to put together the gift bags for the birthday party, he steps in and shows them how to do things the right way. “Set up a line like Henry Ford. Then pass the bags from one to the other. Candy cigarettes, pass the bag, silly putty, pass the bag, and so on.” Asserting his dominance as the head of the household and being the boss are crucial for Abe. He sets the rules. It’s his show and everyone else would do well to remember that! “I still control this house. I’m just doing it from in here.” When Abe believes that there’s no change of Midge and Joel getting back together, he takes the most logical action: inviting an acquaintance (who happens to be a divorce lawyer) over for dinner…

Tertiary Introverted Feeling [Fi]: … However, because Abe prefers to do instead of discuss, Rose and Midge are appalled that he had the nerve to go out and do a thing like that without consulting them first. Abe is pretty reserved emotionally and doesn’t really express his feelings. On the rare occasions that he does, he tends to demonstrate them through actions rather than words. When Rose guilts him because he hasn’t done anything to help Midge, he tries to help in a practical way as opposed to offering emotional support. He goes to Moishe and convinces him to split the cost of Midge and Joel’s apartment with him, so that their home will be waiting if and when they reconcile. Abe values marriage, and wants Midge to do whatever it takes to get Joel to come home, even though he was the one having the affair and he was the one who walked out on her when she had done nothing wrong. At times, Abe can be fiercely protective of the people he loves

Inferior Extroverted Intuition [Ne]: Opening himself up to new things and dealing with change aren’t exactly Abe’s strong suits. He prefers what he’s familiar with. Unpredictability and disruptions in his usual schedule are stressful. He’s not very open to other people’s point of view because he tends to have trouble seeing beyond his own subjective impressions of people and situations. Abe is rather close-minded and tends to feel that he knows best without bothering to be objective and hear other people out. Although he isn’t very open to listening to those he disagrees with he is able to come around eventually, and even becomes willing to support Midge by setting up the meeting with the divorce lawyer so she can begin to move on with her life.

Lucas Sinclair (Stranger Things): ISTJ

Dominant Introverted Sensing [Si]: Lucas puts a lot of faith in his former experiences. He will only trust something that he’s seen with his own two eyes, and doesn’t tend to speculate beyond what he knows, which is always based on sensory data he’s collected and stored. All he actually saw Eleven do was close a door! They have no way of knowing whether she’s capable of doing anything more than that! Shutting one door doesn’t mean she’ll be able to protect them when they go looking for Will. They need real, practical weapons if they want to defend themselves! “She’s not a superhero. She’s a weirdo.” When he sees Will’s body, that’s it. He’s dead and he isn’t coming back. While Dustin is more open to possibilities and starts to believe Mike might be right about Will still being out there, Lucas is unable to get around the fact that they saw Will’s body being removed from the water. Lucas doesn’t have positive feelings towards Eleven right off the bat like Mike does. He can’t trust her; he doesn’t even know her. She could be (and probably is) a psychopath for all he knows! Instead, he slowly learns to regard her as an ally, and later as a friend as he continues to interact with her over an extended period of time. He doesn’t begin to fully trust her until she stops the bullies from harassing them. Once she proves herself, Lucas changes his tune and begins to see her differently. While Mike and Dustin are usually more concerned with the big picture, Lucas thinks about the details of a situation. Yeah, using Mr. Clarke’s radio is all well and good and everything, but it’s at school. And we can’t bring Eleven there looking like that. She’ll draw way too much unwanted attention! Yeah, you get to the Vale of Shadows by casting Shadow Walk in the game, but how do we get to the Upside Down in real life?

Auxiliary Extroverted Thinking [Te]: The facts of a situation are important to Lucas. The Demogorgon isn’t real, it’s fictional! Lucas brings practical supplies (weapons) so that they can defend themselves if they find themselves up against whoever or whatever took Will. Lucas doesn’t sugarcoat the truth and has no problem telling it exactly the way it is, regardless of whether the people around him get offended. While Mike tiptoes around Eleven’s feelings and doesn’t want to scare her, Lucas charges right at her and demands to know what she knows about Will. If Dustin is being a sissy, Lucas will tell him to either cut it out or go home. Lucas doesn’t like when things don’t go according to plan. They went out to look for Will and came back with Eleven. She’s not their problem, Will is! They should be focusing on finding him, not adding to their list of problems! The logical thing is to just tell Mike’s mother about Eleven and let her deal with it, so they can get back to searching for their friend. “All that matters is, after school, the freak will be back in the loony bin, and we can focus on what really matters, finding Will.” Lucas is okay with taking charge of a situation and saying, “This is the plan. This is what we’re going to do.” However, he is often outvoted by Mike and Dustin, who are less realistic about things than he is.

Tertiary Introverted Feeling [Fi]: Although it’s clear to Mike that Eleven needs their help, Lucas doesn’t want anything to do with her. Lucas cares very much about his friends, but doesn’t usually go out of his way for anyone he doesn’t have a personal connection to. He will do whatever it takes to find Will because Will is his friend. He doesn’t know Eleven, so he doesn’t feel the need to protect her. And her head is shaved like the people at the nut house, so there’s a very real possibility she escaped from there! Lucas doesn’t want to get mixed up with a crazy person. He wouldn’t want Eleven in his house, even though it’s very obvious to Mike that she’s terrified and needs to be helped. Lucas approaches morality in a completely subjective way. When Will rolls a seven and gets caught by the Demogorgon, he tells Will that the seven didn’t count as long as Mike didn’t see it (though Will fesses up and tells Mike the truth anyway). Although Lucas can cling to his convictions about things and people, he is capable of changing his opinion and apologizing when he is confronted with hard evidence that he was wrong.

Inferior Extroverted Intuition [Ne]: It’s hard for Lucas to theorize and come up with ideas, which Mike and Dustin manage to do with ease. Rather, Lucas tends to keep the other two boys grounded. He doesn’t want to get ahead of himself with baseless speculation. Lucas wants to be practical and realistic, and is often irked when the other two start spewing what he considers to be nonsense. Lucas is capable of coming up with theories, but only if there’s some sort of precedent. Eleven’s hair is shaved and doesn’t seem sane to him, so it’s very possible that she escaped from Pennhurst. While he doesn’t jump on Mike and Dustin’s abstract discussions as readily, he is able to follow along with their train of thought and fine-tune their more far-fetched ideas. Lucas is okay with using his imagination every now and then (such as when he’s playing Dungeons & Dragons with his friends), but it isn’t his main approach to life. He uses it more for recreational purposes than to solve real-world problems.

Eddard “Ned” Stark (Game of Thrones): ISTJ

Dominant Introverted Sensing [Si]: Ned is traditional and abides by established rules and customs. The king asked Ned to be his hand, so he must serve, even if that means leaving his wife and most of his children behind. It’s his duty and he’s loyal to Robert. Sansa’s remark about giving Joffrey golden-haired children gets Ned thinking, so he consults the records for the Baratheon family… all black of hair, indicating that this gene is dominant. This leads Ned to the belief that Robert’s children aren’t actually his. When Ned comes to the conclusion that Joffrey, Tommen, and Myrcella are actually Jaime’s and not Robert’s, he is unwilling to allow Joffrey to become king, because he’s not the true king. The crown should pass to Stannis, because that’s how it’s supposed to be. That’s the way it works. He’s the rightful heir, no “buts” about it. Ned is horrified to learn how much debt the kingdom is in. How could they all let that happen?! It’s irresponsible to have tournaments we can’t pay for when the kingdom owes so much money. Ned always wants to do things by the book, which often gets him into trouble, because he’s typically surrounded with schemers who will do whatever it takes to further their own agendas. Although he eventually comes around, Ned wants Arya to be a lady and stop playing with swords because she’s supposed to grow up, marry a lord and rule his castle. She can’t be a lord of holdfast. She’s a girl. The only thing that’s more important to Ned than his honor is his family. He is willing to die for his honor until Varys forces him to think about what will happen to his daughters if he doesn’t tell Cersei what she needs to hear. He’s unwilling to trade his honor for his life, but eventually decides that Sansa’s life is worth more to him than his honor. Ned trusts his own senses and only believes in what he can see or hear. He doesn’t believe the deserter’s story about the White Walkers, writing him off as mad. Ned uses his past experiences to make decisions in the present. He doesn’t trust Jorah’s word about Daenerys because Jorah’s a criminal. He’s not concerned with the Dothraki because they’ve never crossed the sea before. Why should he fear them?

Auxiliary Extroverted Thinking [Te]: As lord of Winterfell, Ned is often tasked with making decisions and he’s very good at leaving his emotions out of it. He beheads the deserter because what he did was against the rules and had to be done. Ned is responsible, practical, and he has respect for the chain of command. When he is charged with taking Robert’s place on the throne after he goes on a hunting trip, he decides to have Ser Gregor Clegane stripped of his titles, his land, and sentences him to death, a very drastic action. He also demands that Tywin Lannister presents himself in court to answer for the crimes of his bannermen. Ned cares about the facts of a situation. The Dothraki won’t cross the Narrow Sea. They don’t have any ships! All they have are horses and they’re not going to get the Dothraki across the water. Ned is comfortable with giving orders and commanding men. He instructs his men to take Cersei and Joffrey into custody, a very bold move, which doesn’t exactly pan out the way Ned had hoped. Ned needs proof before acting. He’s not going to have a girl killed based on gossip. He needs concrete evidence before making a move. Ned cares very much about rules and laws, and is quick to enforce them when necessary. He believes that “the man who passes the sentence should swing the sword.” He doesn’t enjoy killing, but it’s his responsibility. It needs to be done.

Tertiary Introverted Feeling [Fi]: His values and his honor are everything to Ned. He always tries to do the “right” thing, no matter what the consequences. It’s wrong for Robert to have Daenerys killed. She’s practically a child. If you go through with this, you will lose your honor forever. Ned refuses to trust the word of those who he feels lack honor. He doesn’t believe what Jorah Mormont says because he’s a traitor. He won’t kill a girl based on what he says. “He broke the law, betrayed his family, fled our land. We commit murder on the word of this man?” Ned won’t be part of what Robert’s planning to do. He’s disappointed in Robert because he thought he was better than that. He used to be better than that. The Robert in front of him now is not the same Robert he once knew (Si-Fi). Ned confronts Cersei when he learns the truth about her children and refuses to accept Joffrey as the rightful king. When he finds out the truth, he knows that he must inform Robert, but he doesn’t want to endanger the lives of the children, and decides to warn Cersei to flee before he returns. Ned will not dishonor Robert’s last moments on Earth by “shedding blood in his halls and dragging frightened children from their beds.” Ned doesn’t typically discuss his feelings openly. He tends to keep things to himself and his morality comes from within. Nobody can tell Ned what’s right except Ned. Even though Ser Barristan is being tasked with taking Ned into custody, Ned doesn’t want his men to harm him because he’s good and loyal. He doesn’t trust Varys because he did nothing while Ned was being taken in. He just stood there. Even though Varys had no weapon, no armor, and isn’t a fighter by nature, he still should’ve done something.

Inferior Extroverted Intuition [Ne]: Because Ned tends to take things as they are, he can sometimes have trouble deciphering true motivations and intentions. He doesn’t anticipate that Littlefinger will betray him, and attempts to have Cersei and Joffrey taken in under guard, not realizing that people have been conspiring behind his back. When questioned as to why he would do something so foolish as to confront Cersei, he believed that she would give in to keep her children safe, but he was unable to foresee that she would refuse to surrender. He has trouble seeing the bigger picture, which usually leaves him uncertain in his conversations with intuitive types, such as Littlefinger and Varys.

Enneagram: 1w9 6w5 2w1 Sp/So


Ned: You understand why I did it?
Bran: Jon said he was a deserter.
Ned: But do you understand why I had to kill him?
Bran: “Our way is the old way”?
Ned: The man who passes the sentence should swing the sword.

Ned: I will not believe Jon Arryn allowed Robert to bankrupt the realm.
Pycelle: Lord Arryn gave wise and prudent advice, but I fear His Grace doesn’t always listen.

Ned: This tournament is an extravagance we cannot afford.
Littlefinger: As you will. But still, we’d best make our plans.
Ned: There will be no plans… until I speak to Robert. Forgive me, my lords. I’m… I had a long ride.
Varys: You are the King’s Hand, Lord Stark. We serve at your pleasure.

Robert: Are you as good with a spear as you used to be?
Ned: No, but I’m still better than you.
Robert: I know what I’m putting you through. Thank you for saying yes. I only ask you because I need you. You’re a loyal friend. You hear me? A loyal friend. The last one I’ve got.
Ned: I hope I’ll serve you well.
Robert: You will. And I’ll make sure you don’t look so fucking grim all the time. Come on, boys, let’s go kill some boar!

Ned: This is no toy. Little ladies shouldn’t play with swords.
Arya: I wasn’t playing. And I don’t want to be a lady.
Ned: Come here. Now what do you want with this?
Arya: It’s called Needle.
Ned: Oh, a blade with a name. And who were you hoping to skewer with Needle? Your sister? Do you know the first thing about sword fighting?
Arya: Stick ’em with the pointy end.
Ned: That’s the essence of it.
Arya: I was trying to learn. I asked Mycah to practice with me. I asked him. It was my fault.
Ned: No, sweet girl. No, no, you didn’t kill the butcher’s boy.
Arya: I hate them. I hate all of them. The Hound, the queen and the king and Joffrey and Sansa.
Ned: Sansa was dragged before the king and queen… and asked to call the prince a liar.
Arya: So was I! He is a liar.
Ned: Shh, darling, listen to me. Sansa will be married to Joffrey someday. She cannot betray him. She must take his side even when he’s wrong.
Arya: But how you can let her marry someone like that?
Ned: Look at me. You’re a Stark of Winterfell. You know our words.
Arya: Winter is coming.
Ned: You were born in the long summer. You’ve never known anything else. But now winter is truly coming. And in the winter, we must protect ourselves, look after one another. Sansa is your sister.
Arya: I don’t hate her. Not really.
Ned: I don’t want to frighten you, but I won’t lie to you either. We’ve come to a dangerous place. We cannot fight a war amongst ourselves. All right? Go on. It’s yours.
Arya: I can keep it?
Ned: Try not to stab your sister with it. If you’re going to own a sword, you’d better know how to use it.

Catelyn: I know they did it, Ned. The Lannisters. In my bones, I know it.
Ned: Littlefinger’s right. I can’t do anything without proof.
Catelyn: And if you find the proof?
Ned: Then I bring it to Robert… and hope he’s still the man I once knew. You watch yourself on the road, huh? That temper of yours is a dangerous thing.
Catelyn: My temper? Gods be good, you nearly killed poor Littlefinger yesterday.
Ned: He still loves you.
Catelyn: Does he?

Arya: Can I be lord of a holdfast?
Ned: You will marry a high lord and rule his castle. And your sons shall be knights and princes and lords. Hmm?
Arya: No. That’s not me.

Ned: Daenerys Targaryen has wed some Dothraki horselord. What of it? Should we send her a wedding gift?
Robert: A knife, perhaps. A good sharp one, and a bold man to wield it.
Ned: She’s little more than a child.
Robert: Soon enough that child will spread her legs and start breeding.
Ned: Tell me we’re not speaking of this.
Robert: Oh, it’s unspeakable to you? What her father did to your family… that was unspeakable. What Rhaegar Targaryen did to your sister… the woman I loved. I’ll kill every Targaryen I get my hands on.
Ned: But you can’t get your hands on this one, can you?
Robert: This Khal Drogo, it’s said he has 100,000 men in his horde.
Ned: Even a million Dothraki are no threat to the realm, as long as they remain on the other side of the Narrow Sea. They have no ships, Robert!
Robert: There are still those in the Seven Kingdoms who call me Usurper. If the Targaryen boy crosses with a Dothraki horde at his back, the scum will join him.
Ned: He will not cross! And if by chance he does, we’ll throw him back into the sea.
Robert: There’s a war coming, Ned. I don’t know when, I don’t know who we’ll be fighting, but it’s coming.

Robert: The whore is pregnant.
Ned: You’re speaking of murdering a child.
Robert: I warned you this would happen, back in the North. I warned you, but you didn’t care to hear. Well, hear it now. I want ’em dead, mother and child both. And that fool Viserys as well. Is that plain enough for you? I want them both dead.
Ned: You will dishonour yourself forever if you do this.
Robert: Honour?! I’ve got seven kingdoms to rule! One king, seven kingdoms. Do you think honour keeps them in line? Do you think it’s honour that’s keeping the peace? It’s fear- fear and blood.
Ned: Then we’re no better than the Mad King.
Robert: Careful, Ned. Careful now.
Ned: You want to assassinate a girl because the spider heard a rumour?
Varys: No rumour, my lord. The princess is with child.
Ned: Based on whose information?
Varys: Ser Jorah Mormont. He is serving as advisor to the Targaryens.
Ned: Mormont? You bring us the whispers of a traitor half a world away and call it fact?
Littlefinger: Jorah Mormont’s a slaver, not a traitor. Small difference, I know, to an honourable man.
Ned: He broke the law, betrayed his family, fled our land. We commit murder on the word of this man?
Robert: And if he’s right? If she has a son? A Targaryen at the head of a Dothraki army what then?
Ned: The Narrow Sea still lies between us. I’ll fear the Dothraki the day they teach their horses to run on water.
Robert: Do nothing? That’s your wise advice? Do nothing till our enemies are on our shores? You’re my council. Counsel! Speak sense to this honourable fool.
Varys: I understand your misgivings, my lord. Truly, I do. It is a terrible thing we must consider, a vile thing. Yet we who presume to rule must sometimes do vile things for the good of the realm.
Should the gods grant Daenerys a son, the realm will bleed.
Pycelle: I bear this girl no ill will, but should the Dothraki invade, how many innocents will die? How many towns will burn? Is it not wiser, kinder even, that she should die now so that tens of thousands might live?
Renly: We should have had them both killed years ago.
Littlefinger: When you find yourself in bed with an ugly woman, best close your eyes, get it over with. Cut her throat. Be done with it.
Ned: I followed you into war… twice, without doubts, without second thoughts. But I will not follow you now. The Robert I grew up with didn’t tremble at the shadow of an unborn child.
Robert: She dies.
Ned: I will have no part in it.
Robert: You’re the King’s Hand, Lord Stark. You’ll do as I command or I’ll find me a Hand who will.
Ned: And good luck to him. I thought you were a better man.
Robert: Out. Out, damn you. I’m done with you. Go, run back to Winterfell! I’ll have your head on a spike! I’ll put it there myself, you fool! You think you’re too good for this? Too proud and honourable? This is a war!

Joss: They burned most everything in the Riverlands – our fields, our granaries, our homes. They took our women, and then they took ‘em again. When they was done, they butchered them as if they was animals. They covered our children in pitch, and lit them on fire.
Pycelle: Brigands, most likely.
Joss: They weren’t thieves, they didn’t steal nothing. They even left something behind, your Grace.
Pycelle: It’s the King’s Hand you’re addressing, not the king. The king is hunting.
[Another man comes forward with a large bag. He dumps the contents out, and they are revealed to be a pile of dead fish.]
Littlefinger: Fish. The sigil of House Tully. [to Ned, whispering] Isn’t that your wife’s House – Tully – my Lord Hand?
[Pycelle looks at Ned expectantly.]
Ned: These men, were they flying a sigil?
[Joss looks confused.]
Ned: A banner.
Joss: None, your…. Hand. The one who was leading them – taller by a foot than any man I’ve ever met. Saw him cut the blacksmith in two, saw him take the head off a horse with a single swing of his sword.
Littlefinger: [to Ned, whispering] That sounds like someone we know – the Mountain.
Ned: You’re describing Ser Gregor Clegane.
Pycelle: Why should Ser Gregor turn brigand? The man is an anointed knight.
Littlefinger: [to Pycelle] I’ve heard him called “Tywin Lannister’s mad dog.” I’m sure you have as well. [to Ned, whispering] Can you think of any reason the Lannisters might possibly have for being angry with your wife?
Pycelle: If the Lannisters were to order attacks on villages under the king’s protection, it would be –
Littlefinger: That would be almost as brazen as attacking the Hand of the King in the streets of the capital.
Pycelle: Well…
[Ned thinks for a moment.]
Ned: I cannot give you back your homes or restore your dead to life. But perhaps I can give you justice in the name of our king, Robert. Lord Beric Dondarrion.
[Beric Dondarrion steps forward.]
Ned: You shall have the command. Assemble one hundred men and ride to Ser Gregor’s keep.
Beric: As you command.
[Ned stands up, and we see he is now using a cane to walk due to the injury to his leg.]
Ned: In the name of Robert of the House Baratheon, the First of his Name, King of the Andals and the First Men, Lord of the Seven Kingdoms and Protector of the Realm, I charge you to bring the king’s justice to the false knight Gregor Clegane and all those who shared in his crimes. I denounce him and attaint him.
[Beric nods. The other peasants murmur amongst themselves.]
Ned: I strip him of all ranks and titles, of all lands and holdings, and sentence him to death.
[Pycelle stands up.]
Pycelle: My lord, this….this is a drastic action. It would be better to wait for King Robert’s return.
Ned: Grand Maester Pycelle.
Pycelle: My Lord?
Ned: Send a raven to Casterly Rock. Inform Tywin Lannister that he has been summoned to court to answer for the crimes of his bannermen. He will arrive within the fortnight, or be branded an enemy of the crown and a traitor to the realm.
[The murmuring continues. Ned dismisses the host, and both Beric and Joss bow. Ned slowly leaves the throne, and is followed by Littlefinger, while Pycelle watches from afar, looking somewhat worried.]
Littlefinger: A bold move, my Lord, and admirable. But is it wise to yank the lion’s tail? Tywin Lannister is the richest man in all the Seven Kingdoms. Gold wins wars, not soldiers.
Ned: Then how come Robert is king and not Tywin Lannister?

Sansa: He’ll be the greatest king that ever was, a golden lion, and I’ll give him sons with beautiful blonde hair!
[Ned does a double take when Sansa says ‘beautiful blond hair’.]
Arya: The lion’s not his sigil, idiot. He’s a stag, like his father.
Sansa: He is not. He’s nothing like that old drunk king!
[Pause while Ned seems lost in thought.]
Ned: Go on, girls. Get your septa and start packing your things.
Sansa: Wait!
Arya: [to Sansa] Come on!
[She begins dragging Sansa out of the room.]
Sansa: But it’s not fair!
[The two exit Ned’s room and close the door behind them. Ned slowly makes his way over to his desk, opening the book of lineages given to him by Grand Maester Pycelle. He turns to House Baratheon’s page.]
Ned: [reading] “Lord Orys Baratheon, black of hair. Axel Baratheon, black of hair. Lyonel Baratheon, black of hair. Steffon Baratheon, black of hair. Robert Baratheon, black of hair. Joffrey Baratheon… golden-haired.”
[Ned thinks for a moment before a look of shocked realization comes across his face as he closes the book.]

Cersei: You’re in pain.
[Ned uses his cane to slowly stand.]
Ned: I’ve had worse, my lady.
Cersei: Perhaps it’s time to go home. The South doesn’t seem to agree with you.
Ned: I know the truth Jon Arryn died for.
Cersei: Do you, Lord Stark? Is that why you called me here, to pose me riddles?
[Ned notices the bruise still on Cersei’s cheek.]
Ned: Has he done this before?
[He indicates the bruise.]
Cersei: Jaime would have killed him. My brother is worth a thousand of your friend.
Ned: [accusing] Your brother… or your lover?
[Cersei realizes the implication Ned is making and smirks. Ned realizes he’s right.]
Cersei: [proudly] The Targaryens wed brothers and sisters for 300 years to keep bloodlines pure. Jaime and I are more than brother and sister. We shared a womb. We came into this world together. We belong together.
Ned: [still accusing] My son saw you with him.
[Long pause. Cersei regards Ned shrewdly.]
Cersei: Do you love your children?
Ned: With all my heart.
Cersei: No more than I love mine.
Ned: And they’re all Jaime’s.
[Cersei laughs.]
Cersei: Thank the Gods. In the rare event that Robert leaves his whores for long enough to stumble drunk into my bed, I finish him off in other ways. In the morning, he doesn’t remember.
Ned: You’ve always hated him….
Cersei: Hated him? I worshiped him! Every girl in the Seven Kingdoms dreamed of him, but he was mine by oath. And when I finally saw him on our wedding day in the Sept of Baelor, lean and fierce and black-bearded, it was the happiest moment of my life. Then that night he crawled on top of me, stinking of wine and did what he did, what little he could do, and whispered in my ear, “Lyanna”. Your sister was a corpse and I was a living girl and he loved her more than me.
Ned: When the King returns from his hunt, I’ll tell him the truth. You must be gone by then – you and your children. I will not have their blood on my hands. Go as far away as you can, with as many men as you can. Because wherever you go, Robert’s wrath will follow you.
Cersei: And what of my wrath, Lord Stark? You should have taken the realm for yourself. Jaime told me about the day King’s Landing fell: he was sitting in the Iron Throne and you made him give it up. All you needed to do was climb the steps yourself. Such a sad mistake.
Ned: I’ve made many mistakes in my life, but that wasn’t one of them.
Cersei: Oh, but it was. When you play the game of thrones, you win or you die. There is no middle ground.

Robert: Paper and ink on the table, write down what I say. [Ned grabs the paper and quill and begins writing.] “In the name of Robert of the House Baratheon, first of…” you know how it goes. Fill in the damn titles. [Ned does so.] “I hereby command Eddard of House Stark” – titles, titles – “to serve as Lord Regent and Protector of the Realm upon my death to rule in my stead, until my son Joffrey comes of age”.
[Ned hesitates, then writes “my rightful heir” instead.]
Robert: Give it over. [Ned does so. Robert puts his signature down on the letter before handing it back.] Give it to the council after I’m dead. At least they’ll say I did this right, this one thing. You’ll rule now. You’ll hate it worse than I did, but you’ll do it well. The girl – Daenerys. You were right. Varys, Littlefinger, my brother – worthless. No one to tell me “no” but you. Only you. Let her live. Stop it, if it’s not too late.
Ned: I will.
Robert: And my son… help him, Ned. Make him better than me.
Ned: I’ll… I’ll do everything I can to honor your memory.
Robert: My memory? [He laughs feebly.] King Robert Baratheon, murdered by a pig…. [He laughs feebly again. Ned watches him sadly.] Give me something for the pain and let me die.

Renly: He named you Protector of the Realm.
Ned: He did.
Renly: [talking about Cersei, with contempt] She won’t care. Give me an hour and I can put a hundred swords at your command.
Ned: And what should I do with a hundred swords?
Renly: [obviously] Strike! Tonight while the castle sleeps. We must get Joffrey away from his mother and into our custody. Protector of the Realm or no, he who holds the King holds the Kingdom. Every moment you delay gives Cersei another moment to prepare. By the time Robert dies, it will be too late for the both of us.
Ned: What about Stannis?
Renly: Saving the Seven Kingdoms from Cersei and delivering them to Stannis? You have odd notions about protecting the realm.
[Ned looks frustrated.]
Ned: [somewhat sternly] Stannis is your older brother.
Renly: [urging] This isn’t about the bloody line of succession! That didn’t matter when you rebelled against the Mad King; it shouldn’t matter now. [Ned is slowly realizing what Renly is getting at.] What’s best for the Kingdoms? What’s best for the people we rule? We all know what Stannis is. He inspires no love or loyalty. He’s not a King. I am.
[Ned looks surprised. Renly stares at him expectantly.]
Ned: [losing his patience] Stannis is a commander. [Renly looks frustrated that Ned isn’t listening to reason.] He’s led men into war twice. He destroyed the Greyjoy fleet.
Renly: Yes, he’s a good soldier; everyone knows that. So was Robert. Tell me something: Do you still believe good soldiers make good kings?
[Ned is at a loss for words. Renly regards him shrewdly as he thinks for a moment.]
Ned: I will not dishonor Robert’s last hours by shedding blood in his halls and dragging frightened children from their beds.
[Ned walks off, leaving Renly looking agitated.]

Ned: The King has no true born sons. Joffrey and Tommen are Jaime Lannister’s bastards.
Littlefinger: So when the King dies…
Ned: The throne passes to his brother, Lord Stannis.
[Littlefinger begins pacing around the office.]
Littlefinger: So it would seem. Unless-
Ned: There is no “unless”. He is the rightful heir. Nothing can change that.
Littlefinger: And he cannot take the throne without your help; you would be wise to deny it to him and to make sure Joffrey succeeds.
[Pause while Ned regards Littlefinger with disgust.]
Ned: Do you have a shred of honor?
Littlefinger: You are now Hand of the King and Protector of the Realm. All of the power is yours; you need only reach out and take it. Make peace with the Lannisters. Release the Imp. Wed your daughter to Joffrey. We have plenty of time to get rid of Stannis, and if Joffrey seems likely to cause problems when he comes into his throne, we simply reveal his little secret and seat Lord Renly there instead.
Ned: “We?”
Littlefinger: You’ll need someone to share these burdens. I assure you, my price would be modest.
Ned: What you suggest is treason.
Littlefinger: Only if we lose.
Ned: Make peace with the Lannisters, you say.
[Ned takes out the dagger used to kill Bran and looks at it reflectingly.] With the people who tried to murder my boy.
[He sets the dagger down.]
Littlefinger: We only make peace with our enemies, my lord. That’s why it’s called “making peace”.
Ned: No. I won’t do it.
Littlefinger: So it will be Stannis and war?
Ned: There is no other choice. He is the heir.
[Littlefinger is clearly disappointed.]
Littlefinger: So why did you call me here? Not for my wisdom, clearly.
Ned: You promised Catelyn you would help me. The Queen has a dozen knights and a hundred men-at-arms – enough to overwhelm what remains of my household guard. I need the Gold Cloaks. The City Watch is 2,000 strong and sworn to defend the King’s peace.
[A grin slowly forms on Littlefinger’s face.]
Littlefinger: Look at you – you know what you want me to do.
[He sits down.] You know it has to be done, but it’s not honorable so the words stick in your throat. When the Queen proclaims one King and the Hand proclaims another, whose peace do the Gold Cloaks protect? Who do they follow? [He slowly turns the dagger on Ned’s desk towards him.] The man who pays them.

Cersei: Protector of the Realm. Is this meant to be your shield, Lord Stark? A piece of paper? [Cersei tears the letter to pieces.]
Barristan: [startled] Those were the King’s words.
Cersei: [to Barristan] We have a new king now. [to Ned] Lord Eddard, when we last spoke you offered me some counsel. Allow me to return the courtesy: bend the knee, My Lord. Bend the knee and swear loyalty to my son and we shall allow you to live out your days in the gray waste you call home.
Ned: Your son has no claim to the throne.
[Cersei scoffs.]
Joffrey: Liar!
Cersei: You condemn yourself with your own mouth, Lord Stark. Ser Barristan, seize this traitor.
[Barristan looks confused, but nonetheless advances on Ned. Several of Ned’s guards move in.]
Ned: Ser Barristan is a good man, a loyal man. Do him no harm.
[Barristan seemingly backs off.]
Cersei: You think he stands alone?
[The Hound draws his sword.]
Joffrey: Kill him! Kill all of them, I command it!
[The other Lannister guards draw their swords.]
Ned: [to Janos] Commander! Take the Queen and her children into custody. Escort them back to the royal apartments and keep them there, under guard.
Janos: Men of the Watch!
[The Gold Cloaks all draw their swords and point their spears up at Cersei and Joffrey. Barristan looks forlorn, but The Hound still looks ready to fight.]
Ned: [to his men] I want no bloodshed. [to Cersei] Tell your men to lay down their swords. No one needs to die.
[Cersei briefly makes eye contact with Janos.]
Janos: Now!
[The Gold Cloaks suddenly start attacking and killing Ned’s guards. Ned is shocked and realized he’s been betrayed. Ned starts to draw his sword, but Littlefinger suddenly sweeps up behind him and puts a knife to his throat.]
Littlefinger: I did warn you not to trust me.

Varys: Lord Stark, you must be thirsty. [He kneels beside Ned and offers him a skin of water.]
Ned: Varys?
[Varys continued to offer the water, but Ned does not take it.]
Varys: I promise you, it isn’t poisoned. Why is it no one ever trusts the eunuch? [He drinks from it to prove himself. Afterwards he again offers it to Ned. Ned, who is handcuffed by the wrists, takes the skin and drinks from it rather quickly.] Not so much, My Lord. I would save the rest, if I were you. Hide it; men have been known to die of thirst in these cells.
Ned: What about my daughters?
Varys: The younger one seems to have escaped the castle. Even my little birds cannot find her.
[Ned looks relieved that ARYA is seemingly safe for the time being.]
Ned: And Sansa?
Varys: Still engaged to Joffrey. Cersei will keep her close. The rest of your household, though… all dead, it grieves me to say. I do so hate the sight of blood.
Ned: You watched my men being slaughtered and did nothing.
Varys: And would again, My Lord. I was unarmed, unarmored and surrounded by Lannister swords. When you look at me, do you see a hero? What madness led you to tell the Queen you had learned the truth about Joffrey’s birth?
Ned: The madness of mercy. That she might save her children.
Varys: Ah, the children. It’s always the innocents who suffer. It wasn’t the wine that killed Robert, nor the boar. The wine slowed him down and the boar ripped him open, but it was your mercy that killed the King. I trust you know you’re a dead man, Lord Eddard?
Ned: The Queen can’t kill me. Cat holds her brother.
Varys: The wrong brother, sadly. And lost to her. Your wife has let the Imp slip through her fingers.
Ned: If that’s true, then slit my throat and be done with it.
Varys: Not today, My Lord.
Ned: Tell me something, Varys. who do you truly serve?
Varys: The realm, My Lord. Someone must.

Varys: You’ve seen better days, my lord.
Ned: Another visit? lt seems you’re my last friend.
Varys: No, no, many still love you. [Varys once again has the skin of water. Ned takes it. As he starts to drink from it, Varys pulls down his hood.] Sansa came to court this morning to plead for your life.
[Pause as Ned continues to drink from the skin.]
Ned: On her knees begging for me. Hmm… did you laugh with the others?
Varys: You do me wrong, my lord; your blood is the last thing l want.
Ned: l don’t know what you want. I’ve given up trying to guess.
[He takes a drink from the skin. Varys thinks for a moment about what to say next.]
Varys: When I was still a boy – before they cut my balls off with a hot knife – I traveled with a group of actors through the Free Cities. They taught me that each man has a role to play. The same is true at court. I am the Master of Whisperers. My role is to be sly, obsequious and without scruples. I’m a good actor, my lord.
Ned: Huh. Can you free me from this pit?
Varys: I could… But will I? No.
[Ned laughs sarcastically.]
Varys: As I said, I’m no hero.
Ned: What do you want? Tell me. No riddles, no stories – tell me, what do you want?
[Varys kneels down beside Ned.]
Varys: Peace. [Ned looks skeptical.] Did you know that your son is marching south with an army of northmen? Loyal lad, fighting for his father’s freedom.
Ned: Robb? He’s just a boy…
Varys: Boys have been conquerors before. But the man giving Cersei sleepless nights is the king’s – the late king’s brother. Lord Stannis has the best claim to throne. He is a proven battle commander and he is utterly without mercy.
Ned: Stannis Baratheon is Robert’s true heir. The throne is his by rights.
Varys: Sansa pleaded so sweetly for your life; it would be such a shame to throw it away. Cersei is no fool. She knows a tame wolf is more use to her than a dead one.
Ned: You want me to serve the woman who murdered my king, who butchered my men, who crippled my son?!
Varys: I want you to serve the realm! Tell the queen you will confess your vile treason, tell your son to lay down his sword and proclaim Joffrey as the true heir! Cersei knows you as a man of honor. If you give her the peace she needs, and promise to carry her secret to your grave, I believe she will allow you to take the black and live out your days on the Wall with your brother and your bastard son.
Ned: You think my life is some precious thing to me? That I would trade my honor for a few more years of – of what?!You grew up with actors. You learned their craft and you learnt it well. But I grew up with soldiers. I learned how to die a long time ago.
Varys: Pity. Such a pity.
[He stands up and starts to leave, but briefly turns back for a moment, a look of disappointment still on his face.]
Varys: What of your daughter’s life, my Lord? Is that a precious thing to you?

Kirsten Cohen (The O.C.): ISTJ

Dominant Introverted Sensing [Si]: Kirsten’s past and her upbringing have a profound impact on her. She has conservative beliefs because her parents had conservative beliefs. She goes into the same line of work as her father, and is one of the most hardworking people at The Newport Group. Kirsten is reliable and committed to her work. She has a keen understanding of how society works and how to act within it. It takes Kirsten longer to warm up to new things and people than the rest of her family. She is leery about allowing Ryan into her home and believes that he is trouble. Unlike Sandy, she can’t just open her home and heart up to a stranger. He could be dangerous. However, the more time she spends with Ryan, the more she is able to see that he is a decent kid, and she ends up wanting to help him. It just takes her a little bit longer than Sandy and Seth, who are instantly accepting of Ryan. Kirsten enjoys traditions and holidays (especially Valentine’s Day, much to Sandy’s dismay). She spends New Year’s Eve doing the same thing every year. When she thinks that Sandy forgot their 20th wedding anniversary, she’s furious with him. Kirsten is comfortable with her routine and doesn’t seek much spontaneity in life. She values her family, makes sure her home is taken care of, and doesn’t really know how to take a vacation. Kirsten often clashes with her younger sister, Hailey, because Hailey enjoys living her life in the moment – she’s rootless and backpacks her way around the world. Hailey’s dominant Se is very difficult for Kirsten’s dominant Si to deal with. When Kirsten finds out about Hailey’s relationship with Jimmy, she insists that this is “what Hailey does.” When they were younger, she would use people to get back at her, so Kirsten believes that’s what her affair with Jimmy is. It couldn’t possibly be real. Kirsten trusts Charlotte and heeds her advice because Charlotte posed as someone who had been through similar experiences. If Charlotte relapsed after leaving rehab too soon, the same might happen to me…”

Auxiliary Extroverted Thinking [Te]: While Sandy is the laid-back “friend” parent, Kirsten picks up the slack by being strict and enforcing rules. She’s much more authoritative than Sandy is, which sometimes forces her to be the “bad guy.” Kirsten wants to be productive and rarely spends time doing anything if it doesn’t yield a tangible result. She enjoys working and even does it to “relax.” Kirsten likes to be in control, so it drives her crazy when Sandy’s mother comes to visit because she’s taking over their house. It’s natural for Kirsten to be able to focus on the task at hand, and she doesn’t like to be distracted when she’s trying to get work done or fix a problem. Kirsten is very hands-on and always likes to have a project. She organizes many charity events and galas in Newport. She’s good at delegating work and staying on target to make sure everything gets done properly. Kirsten tries to keep other people to concentrate on work, which proves to be difficult when she goes into business with Julie. Kirsten just wants to devote herself to the business and commit fully – which she finds difficult when she gets the impression that Julie isn’t interested in getting work done. Even though Kirsten put in a lot of work for what she thought was going to be a big event (which turned out to just be a private date for her “client” to attempt to woo Julie), it doesn’t really bother her, because they got paid for their work, which made it a success in Kirsten’s eyes.

Tertiary Introverted Feeling [Fi]: Sometimes, Kirsten can internalize her feelings. Instead of being forthcoming with them, she acts out (which leads her to develop a drinking problem). Kirsten prioritizes her family and her own loved ones over others. Sandy wants to do what he feels is right (taking Ryan in and giving him a shot at a decent life), but Kirsten is unwilling to allow him to stay under the same roof as her son, because he might get him into trouble. Kirsten doesn’t want the people she loves to put themselves on the line on her account. She’s independent and wants to clean up her own messes and protect those she cares about -which is why she didn’t want Sandy to get involved with her legal woes with the Newport Group. Sometimes, Kirsten is able to put aside what’s “logical.” When Theresa is considering an abortion, Kirsten tells her that she “doesn’t have to make the decision that makes the most sense.” When Sandy asks Kirsten whether she has any idea what Ryan’s going through right now, Kirsten tells him she has a much better idea of what Theresa is going through. It’s easier for her to relate to others when she experienced something similar (Si-Fi). She’s able to relate to Lindsey about Caleb because he’s let Kirsten down so many times throughout the years that she’s able to offer her comfort because she knows what that feels like. If something is important to Kirsten, she devotes a lot of time and energy to it.

Inferior Extroverted Intuition [Ne]: While Kirsten isn’t usually the creative type, she is capable of coming up with ideas of her own. However, her ideas typically stem from something in her external world that gives her a light bulb. For instance, when she sees what a man was willing to pay just to go on a date with Julie, she decides it would be a good idea to ditch their original plan and start their own high end dating service instead. After spending years working for the Newport Group, she is finally able to walk away and wash her hands of it. Although Kirsten typically clings to convention, she is able to take risks and make bold choices. Eventually, Kirsten is even willing to abandon everything she knows to start fresh with Sandy and their new baby. Later, she even decides to leave her home, her life, and everyone she knows in Newport and relocated. Granted, this is also a step backwards, as she moves forward by returning to the home she had in Berkeley with Sandy. It’s hard for Kirsten to adjust to new ideas and new ways of doing things, and it has to happen in her own time and on her own terms. But once she does make the choice to change something in her life, she can really embrace the unknown.

Enneagram: 6w5 1w2 3w2 Sp/Sx


Seth: Hey. What are you doing, working from home?
Kirsten: I’m on vacation.
Seth: [surveying the paperwork] Yes. Clearly.
Kirsten: I find reviewing end-of-the-year accounts to be very relaxing.
Seth: Okay. I hope that’s a recessive gene.
Kirsten: You should be so lucky. Look, I haven’t taken a vacation in a while and I’m easing into it.
Seth: Hey, I don’t judge okay? I only mock.
Kirsten: That you get from your father.
Seth checking his eyebrows: Oh my god, they’re coming in? Oh that’s… I gotcha…

Kirsten: Hailey can we focus for a moment?
Hailey: On the fact that someone’s gotten matronly in the last two years?
Kirsten: Two years is the part that I want to focus on.
Hailey: What am I going to wear tonight? A little Ann Taylor, little Ralph Lauren… Oh my god. Is this from Talbots?
Kirsten: It was a gift. Haven’t you been living in hostels, out of a backpack, wearing clothes made from hemp?
Hailey: That was last year, Kiki.
Kirsten: Don’t call me Kiki! Only Dad calls me Kiki. And only because he won’t… not.

Kirsten: I just don’t understand. I’ve worked so hard for him. I’ve killed myself for him.
Sandy: The man is a bottomless pit of need. You think you can fill it? You can’t. You’re amazing. If he can’t appreciate you, screw him. Quit.

Hailey: So tonight, you guys—
Kirsten: Are going to dinner at The Arches. We do it every year. Home in time to watch Dick Clark and the ball drop. Two images that should not be used in the same sentence.

Kirsten: You spend so much time having fun. You’re whole life is dedicated to having fun. Are you even having any?

Kirsten: Julie I really appreciate your desire to be such good friends. But the thing about good friends is that when they want something, they just ask.

Kirsten: This is my mistake, not yours. And I will not let you compromise yourself. Not even for me.

Kirsten: I told you that I didn’t want you to get involved.
Sandy: I will always do what’s best for my family.
Kirsten: I would rather go to jail than be responsible for you being mixed up in this— getting into bed with my father.
Sandy: I promise you, I’d rather send you to jail that get in bed with your father.

Kirsten: What am I supposed to do? Sit back and let your mother take over the entire house?
Sandy: She’s going to do it anyway. At least this way we get a decent meal out of it.

Kirsten: This is what Hailey does. She uses people to get back at me.
Jimmy: Kirsten, this isn’t about you.

Kirsten: Julie, we are smart, sophisticated women. We don’t need strange naked men dancing in front of us to be entertained.
Julie: I’m not as smart as you. Plus, the boys are getting strippers.

Theresa: Not having this baby makes the most sense.
Kirsten: You don’t have to make the decision that makes the most sense.

Kirsten: Denial is a very effective coping mechanism.

Sandy: Do you know what Ryan’s going through right now?!
Kirsten: Not as well as I know what she’s going through.

Julie: Look who has a new ficus!
Kirsten: Ah, I have a ton of work to do.
Julie: I figure now that I’m in charge I could infuse a little more life into this place. You know, ficus here, and orchid there. Next thing you know we are a—
Kirsten: A rain forest. Thanks for the plant, but right now this company is one failed deal away from total ruin. Which means I have to ficus. I mean focus.
Julie: Ficus, focus. You are all over the place.

Kirsten: I thought you and Jimmy were getting along really well.
Julie: Oh really. What makes you say that?
Kirsten: Because last week you said you and Jimmy were getting along really well.

Sandy: Woah! Top of the morning to you too.
Kirsten: Happy Anniversary.
Sandy: [after an akward pause] Happy Anniversary to you as well.
Kirsten: I love you.
Sandy: I love you too. Oh, I love you more now than I did nineteen years ago.
Kirsten: You mean you love me more now than you did a year after we got married?
Sandy: No! Come on. No, you know what I’m saying. That Newlywed year, that doesn’t count. It’s a given.
Kirsten: You don’t know how long we’ve been married.
Sandy: No! No. I was kidding you. I know it’s our twentieth. How could I forget that? Who forgets their twentieth anniversary?
Kirsten: Apparently you.

Kirsten: I’m not letting the boys stay with Julie Cooper, but they can’t be left alone.
Sandy: Honey. Teenagers. They like girls.
Kirsten: One of which happens to be my sister.
Sandy: So what, we’re gonn forbid him?
Kirsten: Not you. You wouldn’t forbid them anything. You’re too busy being their best friend. I’m the one that has to enforce all the rules.
Sandy: I’ve never done more grounding than I have in the last twenty-four hours!
Kirsten: Who let Seth run away to Portland?
Sandy: What, we’re talking about this now?
Kirsten: You went up there and told him he could stay.
Sandy: It’s a good thing I did! If I let you drag him home we could have lost him forever.
Kirsten: But that’s why this is happening! Because he thinks he can do whatever he wants and you’ll just keep me from coming down on him.
Sandy: You think somebody can stop you from coming down on somebody?
Kirsten: Right. And I should find it adorable that you forgot our anniversary!

Caleb: My god, did you give any thought to your kids?
Kirsten: I am a good mother.
Caleb: You are also an alcoholic. Your mother was one, too. She did her best to hide it, but I always knew.
Kirsten: Why do you think mom drank the way she did?! Why do you think Hailey left the house at 17? If this family is screwed up it’s because of you!
Caleb: I gave you everything you ever wanted.
Kirsten: I may like my Chardonnay but I am not gonna die alone and that’s more than I can say for you!

Kirsten: Who wants to see their maids nude?
Julie: Not maids, Kirsten. They’re strippers.
Kirsten: Who wants a stripper doing their laundry?

Julie: You know what I’m really craving? Sweet corn ravioli. Or do you think that will be too heavy with the crab cakes?
Kirsten: What I think is that you don’t find this business very interesting.
Julie: I’m sorry, Kiki. I’ve just been eating a lot of Ramen lately.
Kirsten: Julie, if this business works, you’ll never have to boil your dinner again.

Kirsten: How was your date?
Julie: Oh, it was awful. We totally didn’t click, we had nothing to talk about, his tongue was like sandpaper.
Kirsten: I’m sorry to hear that.
Julie: I’m sorry, I never should have stayed. It was so unprofessional of me. You made all that food for nothing.
Kirsten: Well, it wasn’t for nothing. We got paid. In a way, our first venture was a success.
Julie: Yeah, I guess so. How weird is it that a guy would spend that much money just to have dinner with a woman.
Kirsten: Julie, I have an idea for a new business.
Julie: Oh my god! A high class call girl operation. I love it!
Kirsten: No. A high end dating service.
Julie: Oh! That could work too.

Kirsten: Julie, last week at dinner I had a drink.
Julie: What? Oh my god.
Kirsten: Now it was the first in eleven months, it was only one glass, and I’ve been going to AA meetings every day. But it happened.
Julie: Have you talked to Sandy about this?
Kirsten: No. I tried before. I could feel it coming.
Julie: Kirsten, you have to tell him.
Kirsten: That the stress of our marriage has triggered my drinking?
Julie: Yes. That’s exactly what you say.
Kirsten: I am not going to use my alcoholism to save our marriage. If he can’t value it for what it is, then what is the point?
Julie: Then what are you going to do?
Kirsten: I don’t know.

Kirsten: Are we crazy coming here?
Sandy: Driving all night to a foreign country where neither of us speak the language and we only have a vague notion of where they are? Yeah. It’s a little crazy.
Kirsten: How much longer do we keep doing this—rescuing them every time they’re in trouble?
Sandy: I don’t know. But for now, I think that’s our job.

Julie: Kirsten, I’m sorry. It was the only way I could think to get you to spend the day with me.
Kirsten: So you told all those women they have chlamydia when they don’t?
Julie: They might. They did have sex with male hookers. Plus I picked the five meanest women in Newport.
Kirsten: What is wrong with you?
Julie: I was desperate. I missed you. I hate not having you in my life, Kirsten. I can live without you as my business partner, but not without you as my friend.
Kirsten: You are going to call all those woman tomorrow and you are going to tell them the truth.
Julie: Okay. But not Linda. Please let Linda think she has an STD.
Kirsten: That is not only unethical, it is just plain mean.
Julie: I disagree. Do you want to debate about it over dinner? You know you missed me, c’mon. Say it. Kirsten.

Kirsten: If we’re going to talk about girls, I am a far more knowledgeable resource than my son.

Nathan Wuornos (Haven): ISTJ

Dominant Introverted Sensing [Si]: The past has a huge impact on Nathan. He’s unable to let it go and tends to hold onto grudges. Even though Duke regularly goes above and beyond to help the police, he still seems him as the kid who used to bully him. When Duke and another boy stuck tacks in Nathan’s back as a kid and then manipulated him into going to talk to a girl who “liked” Nathan. Because of this incident, Nathan was unable to speak to another girl for two years. Duke’s father killed troubled people, so obviously Duke will follow in his footsteps. He’s dangerous and he must be stopped. Past hurts stay with Nathan for a very long time and his experiences shape who he is. He’s unable to fix his relationship with his father because things have been sour between them for so long that he doesn’t know how to start fresh with him. Nathan is comfortable with routine and doesn’t actively seek change in his life. He drives the same truck he’s had since he was was 19. Nathan is traditional and tends to follow procedure. He typically favors the practical, straightforward approach and usually leaves the out-of-the-box thinking to Audrey.

Auxiliary Extroverted Thinking [Te]: Nathan is comfortable with taking action and getting things done. He thinks pragmatically and lives in a world of facts. Even though the Troubles propel him into a world of uncertainty, he tries to cling to established truths and denies that his affliction is due to the Troubles, convincing himself he suffers from a medical condition instead. When he finds out that Duke is supposed to die at the hands of someone with the Guard tattoo, Nathan goes out and gets it himself because he believes he needs to be able to take him out if Duke gives into his family’s curse. As soon as Audrey emerges from the Barn, he immediately tries to get her to kill him in order to end the Troubles once and for all. Nathan prefers concrete, physical evidence in his investigations. He just wants to get the job done, and doesn’t usually care about the hows or the whys. He just wants to solve his cases, not necessarily understand them.

Tertiary Introverted Feeling [Fi]: Emotions are difficult for Nathan to deal with. His feelings are very intense, but he tends to bottle them up prefers to do something about them rather than discuss them. He holds onto his resentment for his father instead of trying to communicate and move on (Si-Fi). He also chooses to keep it to himself for quite some time when he realizes that he can feel Audrey’s touch. Nathan is unable to let Audrey go, which causes him to shoot Agent Howard instead of allowing her to end the Troubles, dooming the entire town because of his inability to say goodbye to her. When she comes back as Lexi, he’s cold and distant with her because she’s not Audrey. When Nathan realizes how badly he screwed up by ruining Haven’s chances of ending the troubles, he is willing to sacrifice his life in order to end them by trying to force Audrey to kill him.

Inferior Extroverted Intuition [Ne]: Seeing possibilities isn’t Nathan’s strong suit. He’s more focused on the facts than what could be, though the more he investigates the Troubles, the more open he becomes to speculating about the unknown. He isn’t fascinated with it the way that Audrey is. He just wants to do his job and protect the town. Nathan needs clear, indisputable evidence before believing something and his ways of approaching situations tend to be more practical than creative. He prefers to write his trouble off as a medical condition rather than call it what it really is. He tries to “help” Daniel by rescuing him from what he perceives as him being drowned by Cole, but Audrey is the one who is able to see that he needs to be in the water. Every now and then, he can become intrigued with the unknown. He’s attracted to Jess because she’s “interesting” and a lot different than he is. She believes that the Troubles are magic and tries to get Nathan to embrace who he is.

Note: Nathan spends a lot of time in a Si-Fi loop.

Duke: It’s the truth. Trust me.
Nathan: Do you remember third grade?
Duke: I remember that you really liked the Pet Shop Boys.
Nathan: Spring. You waited inside for me with a bunch of your friends after gym class. You’re all smiling, congratulating me.
Duke: Do we have to do this right now?
Nathan: Yep.
Duke: Okay. Okay. I – I – I told you that Carla Rose had a crush on you.
Nathan: I felt like I won the lottery.
Duke: Nathan, that was 25 years ago.
Nathan: You all slapped me on the back. Remember that? “Go talk to her. Talk to her.” So I walk down the hall and I got up to her and I felt like my heart was beating out of my chest. I finally open my mouth enough to actually tell her that I liked her too.
Duke: She screamed.
Nathan: Screamed because there was blood dripping down my back. From?
Duke: The tacks that we stuck in it.
Nathan: When you were “congratulating” me. You had a pool going on how many you guys could stick in my back before I noticed.
Duke: Sixteen.
Nathan: Sixteen. Hmm.
Duke: Nathan, if it wasn’t for me, you never would have even talked to her.
Nathan: I didn’t talk to another girl for two years after that.
Duke: I was eight years old!
Nathan: Uh, so was I.
Duke: And so what?
Nathan: So what?
Duke: You think I should die for that?
Nathan: Well…

Audrey: Miss Minion, why do people think that you’re a witch?
Jess: Maybe because they don’t like the way I think.
Audrey: So you’re not a witch?
Jess: What’s a witch? Someone who does magic? What do you think the Troubles are? Magic is everywhere here. It’s in the soil, the water, in us. You suffer so much because you can’t understand what’s happened to you. You know it’s not a medical condition, but you still don’t wanna face the real truth. That you’re transformed by magic. You’re not less, Nathan. You’re more. The only thing wrong with you is your perspective.

Nathan: I came to say I’m sorry.
Jess: You’re sorry?
Nathan: What you said was true. I don’t know… I don’t know about magic, but… I’m definitely something… different…. Or I could be.
Jess: I kind of like you the way you are.

Audrey: I like the truck.
Nathan: I’ve had it since I was 19.
Audrey: How do you keep a car that long?
Nathan: I don’t drive off cliffs…

Audrey: Vince said that if I go into The Barn with my father, I could activate the Aether in to stop the void, end the 27 year cycle. All the troubled would live and the troubles would be gone forever. It would be finally over, Nathan.
Nathan: Really? I was kinda just getting used to it…
Audrey: …I have to go.
Nathan: You do.
Audrey: And I won’t be coming back this time.
Nathan: I know.
Audrey: I’m so sorry.
Nathan: [he pulls her into a hug] What do you have to be sorry for?
Audrey: Leaving you. I wanted us to have more time.
Nathan: We’ll always want more time. The trick will be being thankful for the time we had. We had an amazing time.
Audrey: Yeah, we did.
Nathan: And I spent so much of it trying to keep you here, but now I realize the reason I love you is because you’re willing to go. You are an amazing person, Audrey Parker. I never felt anything until I met you. You saved me. You made me real. I love you, Audrey. I will always love you.
Audrey: Nathan, promise me something.
Nathan: Anything.
Audrey: I want you to be okay. I don’t want you to be alone, so promise me that you will find someone, you will find someone that will make you happy, and you will move on.
Nathan: Move on? How could I ever do that? I will think about you every minute, of every hour, of every day, and that’s why I’ll be okay. After everything you’ve done for the people of this town, for me, Parker, You’ll be with me in all the people who’s pain you’ve taken away. With me in all the people in this town who are free to live, and love, and grow, without fear. When the sun finally shines down on Haven again, you’ll be with me in all the families we’ve put back together, and the ones out in the world who’ve suffered with troubles, too. You’ll be with me when Haven returns to the world and becomes the town we both know it can be. Every person that we have hope, faith that something good could happen for all of us. You’ll be with me in every person who’s happy now, at peace. Because you, Audrey, I’ll never forget you. You will always be with me, and no matter what happens, I will always love you…

Nathan: I can’t worry about what the town thinks anymore. I gotta do what’s right. Sometimes risks pay off.

Nathan: What makes you think I have something to say to you?
Garland: Because you’re my son and I pay attention.
Nathan: Okay. You knew.
Garland: I knew what?
Nathan: The troubles. You knew they were back. You knew I had this – this – whatever this is and you never said anything.
Garland: ‘Cause you weren’t ready to hear it. And when you got whatever it is, this thing that you got… What did you do? You went to see the doctor.
Nathan: I couldn’t feel anything. I thought I was sick! And he agreed with me. He even had a name for it.
Garland: You were hoping you were sick, but you knew better. Maybe you didn’t know when you were eight years old, but you sure as hell knew this time around. And what did you do? You chose to ignore something that was right in front of ya. And when a cop does that, what happens? He gets himself killed.
Nathan: Okay. Maybe I was in denial. So how ’bout calling me on it instead of ignoring me? How about a little fatherly advice?
Garland: You haven’t listened to anything I’ve had to say since you were a little kid.

Duke: What the hell is going on, man? You show up with that thing on your arm. What is that supposed to mean?
Nathan: If you’re supposed to die at the hands of somebody with this tattoo, I need to be on the approved list.
Duke: Nathan, I am not the enemy.
Nathan: Your father, your grandfather, his father before that, they all killed troubled people to wipe out their curses. You don’t think any of them had any doubts? You just think you’re special?
[A gun falls from the ceiling into Duke’s hand]
Duke: I’m gonna go with special. [Nathan starts to move towards him] Nathan… whoever took Audrey, they planted that whistle in her apartment so you would find it and come after me. They want us to kill each other. We are playing right into their hands. [Duke hands the gun to Nathan] I’m not my father.

Cole: Get away from the boy!
Nathan: What are you doing?
Cole: What needs to be done. Move! Both of you! Back under the water. Daniel…
Audrey: Stop right there!
Nathan: Get away from him, Cole. I’m not gonna tell you again.
Cole: You’re the ones hurting him!
Nathan: Daniel, come here. Let me help-
Daniel: Let me go!
Nathan: Let me help you. Daniel, stop! Stop! Let me help you!
Audrey: No! No, wait! Nathan, let him go.
Nathan: Huh? Why?
Audrey: I think that he needs to go back under the water. All right?
Please, just… Trust me.
Cole: It’s okay, Daniel. Lie down. Relax. It’ll be all right.

Audrey (as Lexi): You know I’m not her, right?
Nathan: Yeah, I do. You’re a completely different person, and I don’t want you. I want you to be Audrey again. I’m sorry. I know that’s a terrible thing to say. That’s just how I feel.

Jin-Soo Kwon (Lost): ISTJ

Dominant Introverted Sensing [Si]: Jin is conservative and traditional. He has a very specific idea about the way things “should” be. After they get stranded on the island, Jin wants to be able to provide for his wife, which he does by making sure she gets the necessities (such as food and water), because that’s his job as a husband. Jin has trouble letting go of customs and usual ways of doing things once he becomes stranded on the island. Even though it’s very hot there, he still orders Sun to button her top up all the way when he notices the top button is undone and to keep her shoulders covered. When Sun wore a bikini, he angrily charged towards her with a towel, leading him to accidentally shove her to the ground in his haste to cover her up. It is very difficult for him to abandon his former way of living. Things that used to matter seemed to lose their importance on the island for many survivors, but it took Jin longer than most to adapt. He refuses to elope with Sun, even though that’s what she wants, because her father wouldn’t allow it. Instead, Jin chooses to do what is appropriate (agreeing to work for Mr. Paik in exchange for Sun’s hand in marriage). He is still protective of the watch that Sun’s father entrusted him with on the island, even though such things don’t really matter anymore. Jin postpones his own honeymoon in order to show Mr. Paik that he is committed to his job with him. Although it had been three years since he last experienced it, Jin was immediately able to tell that the island had moved through time again because he recognized the physical sensations – the white flash, the headache, and the temporary loss of hearing.

Auxiliary Extroverted Thinking [Te]: Because Jin is the son of a fisherman and a member of the lower class, he tells people that his father is dead to avoid the shame because he knows that he must shed that image in order to make something of himself in the world. He makes a pragmatic decision to move to Seoul and chose to cut ties with his father in order to do what needed to be done to advance his position in life. Jin is willing to leave Sun on the island in order to help build the raft and find rescue for her, which is the logical thing to do, even though it hurts both of them to be apart. Jin has an extremely strong work ethic. He volunteers for several efforts to get off the island, such as helping to construct a raft or signing up to assist Bernard in creating the S.O.S. sign out of rocks. While he’s building the raft, Jin is completely dedicated to getting the job done and barely takes any breaks. His goal is to get Sun off that island, and he works tirelessly to get the raft ready for the water. Jin understands the way the world works, and knows that he must work his way up to achieve success. He is okay with being part of a system and working within it. Jin has a tendency to be controlling. He tells Sun that he will tell her what to do and often barks out orders to her, as well as the other survivors. He tends to get angry when she defies him, though he eventually learns to give her more freedom and gradually becomes less uptight and domineering. Jin’s approach to getting things done can be ruthless at times. When Jin is trying to force Charlotte to admit that she speaks Korean, he threatens to harm Daniel unless she stops lying. He tells her to make sure Sun gets on the helicopter. When Charlotte asks about the rest of his people, he makes it clear that Sun is his only concern. When Sun gets attacked in her garden, Jin destroys it in order to keep her from going back there.

Tertiary Introverted Feeling [Fi]: When Jin agrees to work for Sun’s father in order to marry her, he tells her that it’s the “right thing to do.” He typically prefers to express his feelings through action rather than with words. Jin initially despises Michael because he believes him to be a thief, and is not willing to try to communicate why the watch was such a big deal to him. When Sun suggests that they try to tell the others, Jin refuses, saying “we will not explain ourselves to a thief.” He won’t tell Sun what he does for her father and keeps it all to himself. He convinces himself that he does whatever Mr. Paik requests for them, and internalizes much of the anger and guilt that he feels. Initially, Jin doesn’t want to get involved with the other people on the island. The only person he cares to communicate with is Sun. After learning that Sun had learned English in secret, he feels betrayed and briefly leaves her in order to work out his feelings. He takes some time to be alone and process his emotions again when he learns the truth about her affair, though he does forgive her because he realizes that he wasn’t the best version of himself prior to the plane crash. When he comes back to her, he makes an effort to be more involved in group dynamics. To make up for the way he treated her and to seek rescue for her, Jin decides to join Michael on the raft, and, for a while, dedicates the majority of his time to helping him build it. Jin has a strong moral compass and there are certain lines he refuses to cross, regardless of the consequences. When he’s working as a doorman at a hotel, he is firmly instructed not to let anyone like him (lower-class individuals) inside the building. However, when a father begs him for entry to allow his young son to use the bathroom, Jin obliges, letting them inside. When Mr. Paik orders him to kill someone, Jin gives him a beating instead and spares his life, knowing the kind of trouble he could get into if Sun’s father ever discovered the truth. Although Jin originally prefers to live in isolation on the island, he does make kind gestures for others, such as offering fish to his fellow survivors, and is particularly nice to Claire due to her pregnancy. Jin is extremely loyal to the people he cares about. When Ana Lucia wants to leave Sawyer behind, Jin refuses. When Michael runs off to find Walt, Jin goes after him. When Michael does this once more after they return to the beach camp, Jin is ready to go looking for him again, but Sun uses his duties to her as a husband to get him to stay and, though he agrees, he tells her that he doesn’t like being told what to do.

Inferior Extroverted Intuition [Ne]: Jin isn’t crazy about change. He is rigid in his ways and it takes a while to adjust to a new way of life on the island. It takes him a long time to come out of his shell and accept the other survivors. He initially has no desire to learn to communicate with the others and doesn’t make an attempt to learn English, even though that means the only person he can talk to is his wife. When he does start learning English, he tells Sun that he’s doing it so they can move to America when they are rescued, thinking that it’s what she wants. Jin isn’t a big idea man and prefers to do things in the customary manner. He typically thinks about the ways things might go wrong, which sometimes prevents him (and Sun, by extension) from taking risks. Every now and then, Jin is able to read between the lines and get a sense of what’s really going on, such as when he is able to pick up on Daniel’s feelings for Charlotte.

Mr. Paik Why do you want to marry my daughter?
Jin: Mr. Paik — I may be from a fishing village, but I have ambitions.
Mr. Paik What are your ambitions?
Jin: To open a restaurant. To one day own my own hotel.
Mr. Paik What does your father think of this marriage?
Jin: My father? He is dead.
Mr. Paik What would you do for my daughter?
Jin: Anything.
Mr. Paik Even work for me?
Jin: Of course.
Mr. Paik Why would I give my daughter to a man who sells his own dreams so easily?
Jin: Because — she is my dream. Sir.

[Jin sees Sun wearing a bikini in the water]
Jin: [covering her with a blanket] What are you doing? Are you out of your mind?

Sun: What about our honeymoon?
Jin: Sun, you know I want to. It’s just that right now — I want your father so see I’m committed.
Sun: He won’t hold it against you. After all, I’m his daughter.
Jin: In 6 months — after my management training is all done.
Sun: I’m just as important as his car company.
Jin: I promise — we’ll have the honeymoon — we always dreamed of.

Jin: Father. Please forgive me. I was — ashamed of you.
Jin’s Father: What is she like?
Jin: Beautiful. Intelligent. Hardheaded. We don’t talk anymore.
Jin’s Father: Why not?
Jin: Because I can’t tell her — about her father. In a good world — she would hate him, not me.
Jin’s Father: It is a good world.
Jin: You don’t know what I’ve done.
Jin’s Father: You are my son. It does not matter what you’ve done.
Jin: I wish I could start over.
Jin’s Father: Why can’t you?
Jin: I have responsibilities.

Jin: I’m sorry. It’s just — we’ve been trying for a year. I think we should see a doctor.
Sun: A doctor?
Jin: A fertility doctor.
Sun: Why do you care so much about a baby you wouldn’t even see?
Jin: Don’t blame my work, Sun. I work so we can…
Sun: Work? When a man comes home with blood on his hands that isn’t “work.”
Jin: And why do you think I come home with blood on my hands? I have blood on my hands because of your father. Because of what he makes me do!
[Sun starts to cry, and Jin gets out of bed and goes to the window.]
Jin: I didn’t mean to — I’m really sorry. Maybe if we had a baby your father might change his mind. Maybe if we gave him a grandchild he might give me a safer job. A baby will change everything. A baby will make it better.

Jin: Do you know how long I’ve been looking for you? What are you doing out here?
Sun: What do you mean? I’m working in my garden.
Jin: Come with me, we’re going back.
Sun: What? No.
Jin: Let’s go, now.
[Jin grabs her arm and pulls her up to make her come with him. She jerks away.]
Sun: What?!
Jin: The Others attacked you here. We talked about this! Let’s go. Now.
[Jin grabs and pulls her again. She breaks away.]
Sun: I don’t need you to protect me. I’m just working in my garden.
Jin: What? “My garden?”
[Jin rips up a bunch of plants from the garden.]
Sun: Stop. Stop! Please stop!
Jin: Now you have no reason to be out here. Shall we go back now?

Sun: What are you doing?
Jin: I’m fixing a mistake.
Sun: You didn’t have to.
Jin: Yes, I did. I need you.
Sun: What?
Jin: I hate being this way. Fighting. And I can’t — I can’t talk to anyone. I can’t understand them. I need you, Sun.

Jin: Are you ready for lunch? Shall we go back?
Sun: I’d like to stay for another 20 minutes or so — by myself. If that’s alright with you.
Jin: [Disappointed] Of course. That’s fine. I’ll see you back at the beach.
Sun: I love you.
[Jin stops in his tracks and kisses her.]
Jin: I love you.

Tai: I’m telling you, man, this year love will find you.
Jin: Well if the destiny book says it, it must be true.
Tai: My grandma used this book to meet my grandfather. It never fails.
Jin: What kind of woman? I mean, what’s she look like, so I’ll know when I see her?
Tai: Orange.
Jin: Orange?
Tai: Yes, love will look… orange.
Jin: I can’t take care of a woman, I can barely take care of myself!
Tai: You could always let a woman take care of you.
Jin: That’s not what a man does. A man needs a goal in life. He works harder than anyone. He gets promoted. Then he’ll be respected — not like the son of a fisherman.
Tai: It’s just a job interview, Jin.

Mr. Kim: And Mr. Kwon? The Seoul Gateway is one of the finest hotels in the country. Do not open the door for people like you.
Jin: Yes, sir. I understand. I will do my best. Thank you, sir!

Poor Man: Excuse me? Excuse me, please? May my son use the bathroom inside? Please, sir. It’s an emergency.
Jin: I’m sorry, sir — hotels guests only. There is a bathroom down the street. [to the boy] Can you hold it?
Poor Man: I’m sorry. He really has to go.
Jin: Subtitle: All right. Go ahead. It’s to the left. But please… be quick.
Poor Man: Thank you — you’re a good man.

Mr. Kim: Mr. Kwon… what did I tell you about who you let inside?
Jin: I apologize, sir.
Mr. Kim: Consider this your first warning.
Jin: It’s just that the little boy-
Mr. Kim: He can piss in the gutter for all I care. You people are used to that. If you want to keep your job go find them and get them out of here!
[Jin takes off his gloves and hat.]
Mr. Kim: What are you doing?
Jin: [Handing him the gloves and hat] Thank you for the opportunity, sir.

SAYID: I told Jack I would light a fire. I’m not abandoning him.
Sun: Sayid says–
Jin: We’re not sailing anywhere! [he grabs Sun’s shoulders angrily] Sayid’s not your husband!
Sun: My husband thinks we have to do as he says because he’s the only one who knows how to sail. But he’s wrong. I can help you sail the boat.

Jin: I have to adjust the sails.
Sun: I’m sorry, Jin. I shouldn’t have disagreed with you. Not in front of Sayid.
Jin: You shouldn’t have disagreed with me. Period. Sun, why did you come with us?
Sun: You know why I came. I didn’t want to be without you.

Mr. Paik: This man has been stealing from me. I need you to put an end to it.
Jin: What did he steal?
Mr. Paik That’s not important!
Jin: Of course… I’ll deliver a message.
Mr. Paik A message won’t suffice! I need you to put an end to it.
Jin: I cannot do that.
Mr. Paik Of course you can.
Jin: Sir, it’s not my job to-
Mr. Paik Your job is what I say it is!
Jin: Then I can’t work for you anymore. I quit. [Jin starts to exit]
Mr. Paik You don’t get to quit! This man has shamed me! You married my daughter, Jin — that makes you my son. My shame is your shame. I need you to restore our family’s honor.

Jae: Wait!
[Jin smashes Jae’s head into the door, takes him into the room, and violently throws him around.]
Jin: [Punching Jae] Do you know who I am?! Do you know why I’m here?!
Jae: I’m sorry.
Jin: Then you know what I have to do.
[Jin puts a gun to Jae’s head. Jae starts crying.]
Jae: I’m sorry. I’m sorry.
[Jin won’t kill him and pulls the gun away.]
Jin: You will leave this country. Do you understand me?! You will leave and never come back. Start a new life. And if I hear you’ve returned — if you have any contact at all — I will finish this. Am I clear?! You don’t exist.

Jin: What’s this money?
Sun: It’s from my father.
Jin: Why?
Sun: I wanted to get us furniture. And I wanted us to have a nice honeymoon.
Jin: I can provide for us. The honeymoon, the furniture, I know it will take longer, but it will happen. And I will pay for it. I will always take care of you, Sun.
Sun: I know.
IN: Then give it back. I don’t want to be in your father’s debt any more than we already are. Please.

Jin: Stay close to Jack, and rest if you feel tired.
Sun: Why are you doing this?
Jin: Because…we have to go home.

Jin: I made… dinner.
Sun: I thought you had left me. Will you let me try to explain?
Jin: It won’t matter.
Sun: Just listen, maybe–
Jin: I know why you did it. I know the man… I used to be. Before this island, I withheld my affections… And I know… that whatever you did… you did to that man. His actions caused this. So I forgive you.

Jin: Do you think she knows he likes her?
Sun: She’s a woman. She knows.
[Charlotte looks back and faintly smiles at the two Koreans. Jin notices.]

Jin: Charlotte.
Charlotte: Yeah?
Jin: I know you understand me.
Charlotte: Pardon?
Jin: I know you speak Korean. You smiled when Sun and I talked about you. And you were listening to us at the station.
Charlotte: I’m sorry. Perhaps I can get your wife to translate—
Jin: If you continue to lie… I’m going to hurt your friend Daniel. I’m going to break his fingers one at a time. Do you understand that?
Charlotte: What do you want?
Jin: When the helicopter comes for you… You’re going to take my wife off this island.
Charlotte: What about you and the rest of your friends?
Jin: Just get her on the helicopter.

Jin: I think we moved through time.
Hurley: How do you know that?
Jin: White flash. Headache. Can’t hear. Happened to me before.

Sebastian (The Little Mermaid): ISTJ

Dominant Introverted Sensing [Si]: Sebastian is a stickler for the rules, making him a loyal friend to King Triton. He is responsible and grounded, causing him to clash with Ariel, whose head is always in the clouds. Because King Triton trusts Sebastian, he tasks him with keeping an eye on Ariel. Sebastian is comfortable with what is familiar, making it difficult for him to comprehend Ariel’s obsession with the human world. He believes that their life in the sea is superior to the world above, and discourages Ariel from fantasizing about it. He struggles to understand why she would need anything more than what the sea has to offer. Sebastian insists that the water is her home and there’s no reason to go to the surface. He wants for her to go home with the other normal fish.

Auxiliary Extroverted Thinking [Te]: When King Triton asks for Sebastian’s opinion about his handling of Ariel, Sebastian stresses the importance of being in control of your children. He believes in laying down the law and showing children who’s boss. Sebastian is typically straightforward and direct. He becomes impatient with Scuttle, who is trying to figure out what’s different about Ariel, and bluntly tells him, “SHE’S GOT LEGS, YOU IDIOT!” He can be callous, particularly when it comes to Scuttle (“What is this idiot blabbing about?”) Sebastian tries to work out a plan to get the prince to kiss Ariel and tells her exactly what she’ll need to do. When Sebastian finds out that Eric plans to marry Ursula, he immediately springs into planning mode and knows exactly what he must do (Flounder has to get Ariel to the boat, Scuttle has to stall the wedding and Sebastian must go to King Triton at once).

Tertiary Introverted Feeling [Fi]: When Ariel doesn’t show up for the concert, Sebastian is humiliated, but instead of showing his feelings about that, he berates her. After he and King Triton tell Ariel off, he stands his ground because he believes what she’s doing is wrong and doesn’t like that she’s causing trouble. Although he doesn’t agree with Ariel’s decision to make the deal with Ursula, he eventually comes to understand that she is miserable in the water and helps because he is loyal to her. He values her happiness and realizes how important Eric is to her, and, even though he thinks she’s being foolish, he aids her and protects her because he feels that’s the right thing to do. He believes that the human world is dangerous and tries to convince Ariel to stay in the water where she belongs, but eventually realizes that what is right for him and the fish and the other mer-people isn’t necessarily right for Ariel. Sebastian values self-preservation and doesn’t come forward about Ariel to King Triton because he is looking out for himself and doesn’t want to get into trouble. Sebastian can be oblivious to other people’s emotions. He doesn’t realize that King Triton is questioning him in a light-hearted, playful manner about the identity of Ariel’s crush, and cracks under the “interrogation” by slipping up and telling him that she has fallen for a human. He is very remorseful about this afterward, though.

Inferior Extroverted Intuition [Ne]: Sebastian is fine with life as it is and doesn’t understand Ariel’s fixation with humans. He unsuccessfully tries to talk sense into Ariel. Although Sebastian can seem somewhat rigid, he eventually understands the importance of giving children freedom to live their lives and make their own choices, even if isn’t what is customary or standard.

Enneagram: 6w5 1w2 3w2 Sp/So


Sebastian: Hm! Teenagers. . . . They think they know everything. You give them an inch, they swim all over you.
King Triton: Do you, er, think I – I was too hard on her?
Sebastian: Definitely not. Why, if Ariel was my daughter, I’d show her who was boss. None of this “flitting to the surface” and other such nonsense. No, sir – I’d keep her under tight control.
King Triton: You’re absolutely right, Sebastian.
Sebastian: Of course.
King Triton: Ariel needs constant supervision.
Sebastian: Constant.
King Triton: Someone to watch over her – to keep her out of trouble.
Sebastian: All the time –
King Triton: And YOU are just the crab to do it.

Sebastian: This is a catastrophe! What would her father say? I’ll tell you what her father’d say, he’d say he’s gonna kill himself a prawn, that’s what her father’d say! I’m gonna march meself straight home right now and tell him just like I shoulda done de minute… and don’t you shake your head at me, young lady. Maybe there’s still time. If we could get that witch to give you back your voice, you could go home with all the normal fish, and just be… just be… just be miserable for the rest of your life. All right, all right. I’ll try to help you find that prince.

Sebastian: We just gotta forget this whole thing ever happened. The sea king will never know. You won’t tell him, I won’t tell him. I will stay in one piece.

Sebastian: Okay. So far, so good. I don’t think the king knows. But it will not be easy keeping something like this a secret for long.
Ariel: [Picking petals off a flower] He loves me . . . hmmm, he loves me not. . . . He loves me! I knew it!
Sebastian: Ariel, stop talking crazy.
Ariel: I gotta see him again – tonight! Scuttle knows where he lives.
Sebastian: Ariel – please. Will you get your head out of the clouds and back in the water where it belongs?
Ariel: I’ll swim up to his castle. Then Flounder will splash around to get his attention, and then with –
Sebastian: Down HERE is your home! Ariel – listen to me. The human world – it’s a mess. Life under the sea is better than anything they got up there.

Sebastian: Just look at the world around you
Right here on the ocean floor
Such wonderful things surround you
What more is you lookin’ for?

Sebastian: And she’s only got three days. Just look at her. On legs. On human legs! My nerves are shot. This is a catastrophe! What would her father say? I’ll tell you what her father’d say, he’d say he’s gonna kill himself a crab, that’s what her father’d say! I’m gonna march meself straight home right now and tell him just like I shoulda done de minute- [Ariel grabs him.] … and don’t you shake your head at me, young lady. Maybe there’s still time. If we could get that witch to give you back your voice, you could go home with all the normal fish, and just be… just be … just be miserable for the rest of your life. All right, all right. I’ll try to help you find that prince. Boy. What a soft-shell I’m turning out to be.

Sebastian: This has got to be, without a doubt, the single most humiliating day of my life. I hope you appreciate what I go through for you, young lady. Now – we got to make a plan to get that boy to kiss you. Tomorrow, when he takes you for that ride, you gotta look your best. You gotta bat your eyes – like this. You gotta pucker up your lips – like this. [He sees she is asleep.] Hm. You are hopeless child. You know dat? Completely hopeless…

Sebastian: You want something done, you got to do it yourself.

Flounder: What are we gonna do!?
Sebastian: Ariel, grab on to that. Flounder, get her to that boat as fast as your fins can carry you!
Flounder: I’ll try.
Sebastian: I’ve gotta get to the sea king. He must know about this.
Scuttle: What – What about me? What about ME?
Sebastian: You – find a way to STALL THAT WEDDING!

Sebastian: Well, it’s like I always say, Your Majesty. Children got to be free to lead their own lives.
King Triton: You – always say that?

Richard Gilmore (Gilmore Girls): ISTJ

Dominant Introverted Sensing [Si]: Richard is hardworking, responsible, dutiful and traditional. He believes in doing things the “right” way. Because of his old-fashioned outlook on the world, he sometimes tends to clash with Lorelai. It’s difficult for him that she rebelled against their lifestyle and their way of engaging with the world. He believes in going to school, getting married, having kids, and doing everything the way it “should” be done. Lorelai’s way of living her life can be rather frustrating for him. Richard is a creature of habit and routine. He’s not big on change and prefers for things to continue in the manner that he is accustomed to. Richard is good at keeping a schedule and enjoys structure in his life. He and Emily go to Martha’s Vineyard every year in the fall. When they are unable to get their usual rental, they refuse to go anywhere else because they always go to Martha’s Vineyard in the fall. They find it preposterous when Lorelai suggests they try going somewhere else instead. They couldn’t possibly go to Europe, because they go to Europe in the spring. He wants Rory to go to Yale because that’s where he went and he had so many good experiences there, so she will, too!

Auxiliary Extroverted Thinking [Te]: Formality is second nature to Richard. He is a successful businessman and his main points of conversation are about work. Whether he’s catching up with an old acquaintance or meeting someone for the first time, he usually immediately opens up with how things are going at their job, what they do for a living, or what they intend to do for a living. Richard is a pragmatic man and usually keeps a cool head. He doesn’t let emotions influence his judgment, and can speak rationally about matters that are typically upsetting for other people to discuss. Richard can sometimes be controlling and meddle in other people’s business affairs. He pressures Luke into franchising the diner, even though that isn’t what Luke wants. If he sees a way for someone to improve their business, he will simply point out what they should be doing in order to become more successful. For Richard, it is important to have success to be measured. Whenever Rory’s achievements are recognized he becomes extremely delighted. He’s thrilled that she finished in the top 3% of her class. When Richard retires, he is unable to just sit around doing nothing and ends up returning to work.

Tertiary Introverted Feeling [Fi]: Many of Richard’s moral judgments come from what is traditionally established as the “right” and “wrong” thing to do (Si-Fi). He often tries to push those on other people, and can become deeply disappointed in them if they don’t live up to his expectations. Richard is not an emotional man and rarely ever discusses his feelings. He cares about his family very much, but he can sometimes be oblivious to what they’re feeling. Sometimes, however, he can be in tune with what another person needs, such as when Rory runs away to their house after a fight with Lorelai. and he insists that Emily give her space. He socializes because that is what tradition mandates, and he can feign interest in conversations because that’s what people should do. Richard would prefer to read or play golf than entertain guests, but that’s the way society works, and so, he acts accordingly. However, sometimes his Fi will determine that something is completely ridiculous, and Richard will refuse to go along with it, even at the expense of his Si desire to respect tradition and social norms.

Inferior Extroverted Intuition [Ne]: Richard can have a hard time outside of his comfort zone. “New” ways of doing things and “alternative” ways of living can be difficult for him to understand. He sometimes struggles to accept when things are different than what he’s used to. However, Richard enjoys travel and values new experiences. He encourages Rory to see the world and believes that she’s destined for “more” than Emily’s life of D.A.R. meetings and planning fundraisers and various social events. Every now and then, he is open to doing something that isn’t “traditional,” such as eating frozen pizza or having Rory act as “best man” when he and Emily renew their wedding vows.

Enneagram: 6w5 Sp/Sx


Richard: Emily!
Emily: Let me do that.
Richard: I hope the Larsons are coming tonight.
Emily: Richard, no business. This is your granddaughter’s party.
Richard: Five minutes of shop talk isn’t going to spoil the evening.
Emily: Five minutes, please.
Richard: Emily.
Emily: If I ever heard you keep your shop talk down to five minutes, I’d drop dead.
Richard: Emily.
Emily: In fact I could drop dead and you wouldn’t stop talking business. You’d just step right over my body to get to the speakerphone.

Richard: Running around with Logan, joining the D.A.R., planning parties…
Emily: What’s wrong with joining the D.A.R.? We both agreed she needed a job.
Richard: Fundraisers and tea parties? It’s frivolous and meaningless. She has more to do, more to be! I don’t want that life for her!
Emily: You mean my life. You don’t want her to be me.

Richard: She’s having sex, Lorelai. She’s having sex under my roof. I paid $40,000 to redecorate her sex house. I bought her a sex mattress. Her sex box springs. I provided everything she needs to waste her life.
Lorelai: Dad, Rory having sex is not your fault. Really, she was having sex way before the big renovation.
Richard: I feel so much better now.

Rory: So, Grandpa, how’s the insurance biz?
Richard: Oh, people die, we pay. People crash cars, we pay. People lose a foot, we pay.

Richard: Oh, no, those aren’t the terms we agreed on.
Lars: They most certainly are.
Richard: Lars, you were at the same meeting I was. We specifically spelled out a five year extention, not a three year one.
Lars: I heard three.

Rory: Oh yeah. I like Spanish. Biology on the other hand .
Richard: Oh, I’m still waiting for the day when my knowledge of the inner workings of a frog’s intestinal system can be applied to my work in the insurance industry.

Richard: I’m going to have to echo Christopher’s call for civility here. A mutual mistake was make many years ago by these two, but they have come a long way since.
Straub: A mutual mistake Richard? This whole evening is ridiculous. We’re supposed to sit here like one big happy family and pretend that the damage that was done is over, gone? I don’t care about how good a student you say that girl is….
Lorelai: Hey!
Straub: Our son was bound for Princeton. Every Hayden male attended Princeton including myself, but it all stopped with Christopher. It’s a humiliation we’ve had to live with every day, all because you seduced him into ruining his life. She had that baby and ended his future.
Richard: [grabbing Straub’s arm] You recant that Straub!
Straub: You’re spilling my drink.
Richard: You owe my daughter an apology.
Straub: An apology, that’s rich.
Richard: How dare you?! [grabbing Straub] How dare you?!
Emily: Richard what are you doing?
Richard: How dare you come into my house and insult my daughter!
Straub: Let go of me!
Christopher: Whoa, whoa, what is going on here? [putting himself between them]
Richard: Shame on you Straub, shame on you for opening all this up again.
Straub: Get your purse Francine.
Richard: My daughter is very successful at what she does.
Straub: We’re leaving.
Richard: You’re not leaving. I’m kicking you out.

Lorelai: Ok. Well look, thank you.
Richard: Thank me? For what?
Lorelai: Well for what you did in there. I’m….I’m just unbelievably touched and grateful for what you said to him, for defending me like that. I know it was hard for you because, well….but thank you.
Richard: Why do you think I did it?
Lorelai: What?
Richard: Why do you think I did it?
Lorelai: I don’t know. Um, out of protectiveness I guess.
Richard: You don’t need to be protected Lorelai. You’ve made it very clear that you can look after yourself and that you need nothing from anyone.
Lorelai: Mm. That’s not….
Richard: A member of my family was being attacked. The very Gilmore name was being attacked. I will not stand for that not under any circumstances.
Lorelai: Ok, well it doesn’t really matter why you did it.
Richard: Yes it does matter why I did it! It matters greatly! Lorelai what are you going to take away from this? That everything that happened in the past is suddenly fine because I defended you?
Lorelai: No.
Richard: That the hell that you put your mother and I through for the past 16 years is suddenly washed away? Well it’s not.
Lorelai: We’ve all been through hell dad.
Richard: I had to tell my friends, my colleagues, that my only daughter, the brightest in her class, was pregnant and was leaving school.
Lorelai: That must have been devastating.
Richard: And then you run away and treat us like lepers. Your mother couldn’t get out of bed for a month. Did you know that? Did you?
Lorelai: No.
Richard: We did nothing to deserve that. Nothing to earn that!
Lorelai: I get it. I’m horrible. So why don’t you disown me and adopt Christopher, you love him.
Richard: Don’t be a martyr Lorelai. And don’t be naïve. Do you think I love the boy who got my daughter pregnant? I wanted to kill him! I would have too with my bare hands. But there’s a proper procedure to be followed in a situation like this.
Lorelai: Marriage.
Richard: Christopher was willing to follow the procedure we laid out, you weren’t.
Lorelai: What about what I wanted Dad? Didn’t that matter to you at all?
Richard: Sometimes one has to sacrifice something in order to do what is right.
Lorelai: I feel indescribably sad for you right now, dad.
Richard: Well save your emotions Lorelai. I’ve had my fill of them tonight.
Lorelai: So, um, we just end it here. Nothing….resolved?
Richard: I’m tired.

Richard: This is the fourth ridiculous gathering you’ve dragged me to this week.
Emily: I’m the president of the board Richard, I have to be there.
Richard: Saving the Berringiny pansy. Who ever heard of such a thing?
Emily: It’s a very rare flower that is rapidly disappearing from the face of this earth.
Richard: Well, who cares?
Emily: As president of the horticultural society, I have to care.
Richard: The last thing I need is to spend four hours being bored out of my skull by the same people I’ll be bored out of my skull by tomorrow night at the symphony fund-raiser.

Emily: [on the phone] And that would be the same as what we were paying for our old place?
John: Exactly the same.
Richard: Except for the grounds fees.
John: Well the grounds fees are higher.
Emily: But the grounds are larger, Richard.
Richard: I’m just trying to get all the information, Emily.
Emily: All the information is that this is our last chance to go to Martha’s Vineyard for the season. That’s all the information.
John: Emily, Richard.
Richard: I realize the position we are in, but this is a business transaction.
Emily: Oh for heaven’s sake.
John: Richard, Emily
Richard: As a business transaction, one in which money goes out and we receive certain goods and services —
Emily: And he’s patronizing me, how lovely.
John: Emily, Richard.
Richard: I must treat this conversation with the same care and devotion to detail I would any conversation that would be considered a business transaction. Kindly allow me to do so.

Lorelai: Nothing. Rory just dressed up in a cute apron the other day and so I was teasing her about it.
Richard: Why did you get dressed up in an apron?
Lorelai: Well. We’ve decided to give up on that pesky Harvard dream and focus on something more realistic. Mom, Dad, Rory’s decided to become a maid, just like I was.
Emily: Is that funny? Did she think that was funny?
Richard: What would have posessed you to say such a thing?
Emily: And in front of Rory?
Lorelai: I was kidding.
Emily: God. My heart stopped.

Richard: So, Dean, where are you planning to go to college?
Dean: Oh, uh, well I…
Lorelai: Geez Dad, start off with ‘what’s your favorite baseball team’ or something.
Richard: I’m talking to Dean.
Dean: I don’t know yet.
Richard: You don’t?
Dean: No, not yet.
Richard: Well, what kind of grades do you get?
Emily: Richard please, don’t grill the boy.
Richard: I’m not grilling the boy Emily. It’s an easy question. A’s, B’s, C’s?
Dean: I get a mixture actually.
Richard: Mixture? [laughs] What’s the ratio?
Emily: Richard.
Richard: I’m just trying to get to know the boy Emily. After all, Rory brings home a young man to dinner, the least we can do is learn something about him.

Richard: In a minute. So Dean…
Rory: Uh, Grandpa?
Dean: I know.
Richard: Harvard, Princeton, Yale.
Lorelai: He said he knew Dad.
Richard: You need top grades to get into a top school.
Dean: Yeah, well, Rory’s really smart.
Richard: Yeah, she is really smart.
Rory: Mom?
Lorelai: Yeah, why don’t we all go sit in the uh…
Richard: So, how are you planning to make a living once you graduate from this college you haven’t thought anything about yet?
Rory: Grandpa, can we talk about something else?
Emily: I’m going to get that book. [leaves]
Richard: I asked you a question.
Dean: I don’t know what I want to do.
Richard: You know, when I was ten years old, I knew exactly where I wanted to work.
Lorelai: That’s because you were always picked last for dodgeball.
Richard: I knew I wanted to go to Yale, and put on a nice suit everyday and be a very important man in a very powerful firm. And I knew I wanted to travel and see the world.
Dean: Well, that’s great.
Richard: I wanted to see La Traviata at the La Scala Operahouse. I wanted to walk the ruins of Pompeii. I wanted to travel the far east…
Lorelai: And be a ballerina or a fireman.
Richard: Lorelai, this isn’t funny.
Lorelai: It’s a little funny to think of a ten-year-old kid dreaming of the La Scala Operahouse.
Richard: Rory does. Rory wants to travel. Rory has plans.

Richard: This family has standards. You live up to them, and you should expect that everyone that you spend time with live up to them also. You are a gifted girl with immense promise, and you should learn very early that certain people can hold you back.

Rory: But I told everybody to have their idea pitches prepared so that we can get you in and out of there as quickly as possible.
Richard: Rory, this is an assignment. We will give it the time that it requires.
Rory: Okay.
Richard: However, efficient is always best.
Rory: I totally understand.

Paris: This is why I’m proposing manufacturing something that no teenager should be without – a first aid kit.
Louise: A first aid kit?
Paris: Specially designed to fit in a locker with minimum space disruption. Bandaids, antiseptic, cotton balls, q-tips, ace bandages, aspirin.
Rory: I don’t know, it’s possible. Does anyone have any questions about it?
Richard: They sell these things in every drug store, do they not?
Paris: Yes, they do.
Richard: There’s also a registered nurse on every campus. Her office would contain the products that you’re talking about, correct?
Paris: Possibly.
Richard: Well, what makes you think you can get a young person to spend good money on something that they could get for free, or at least at a lower cost?
Paris: Because I know one thing about the modern teenager.
Richard: And what is that?
Paris: That you can get them to buy anything as long as it comes in a leopard print.
Louise: True.
Madeline: Very true.
Paris: We get them with style. We dress up the kits with sparkles, colors, pictures of bands. Sport themes for the boys, animal pictures for the puppy and unicorn bunch, chess boards for the Bobby Fischer freaks – a style for every taste. Plus, we use neon bandaids, pink or blue gauze for the bandages, anything that seems young or flashy or bright.
Richard: And that is how you intend to set the business world on its ear?
Paris: That’s right.
Richard: Tricked out first aid kits?
Paris: For the locker.
Richard: And you really think that’s going to work?
Paris: Yes, I do.
Richard: So do I.
Paris: Really?
Richard: It’s perfect. It’s simple, it’s easy to produce, the possibilities are endless. I love it.
Rory: Well, I think we’ve got our product.
Richard: Now, we need to go through this point by point.
Paris: Okay, let’s do it.
Richard: Now, the secret to a great campaign is a great idea. Now, we’ve got that, let’s move on to finances. Um, uh, do any of you have dinner plans, because we’re gonna be here for awhile. Let’s all turn to page four. Here we go. Now, the January projections…

Richard: In the dining room, everyone.
Rory: Wow.
Richard: Welcome, everyone, to the first official board meeting of the StyleAid Corporation. Will everyone please take a seat?
Chip: I feel like Ivan Bosky.
Richard: Rory, you are group leader which translates into chairman of the board, which means you sit at the head of the table.
Rory: But that’s where you sit.
Richard: No, not today. Come on. Now, at this point, I would like to turn the meeting over to Paris who will bring us up to date on our latest developments.

Paris: Now, listed in front of you are all the contents contained in the RX-2002, plus the additional style options, twelve in all. Every one of them waterproof, fireproof, and comes with a five-year warranty.
Richard: Which is longer than most of your high school careers.
Paris: He is funny.
Richard: Now there is also a deluxe model with extra features designed to personalize your kit even more specifically for your needs. There will be a snap-in CD case which can hold up to ten CDs, there’s a lighted vanity mirror, and a divided compartment for makeup and knickknacks. A picture frame and a hidden mini vault for valuables which can be locked for safety.
Paris: Terrific idea, Richard, really – top notch.
Richard: Thank you, Paris.
Rory: This is really amazing. I want one of these.
Richard: Exactly the point. Now, let’s check in with our marketing department. Uh, Madeline, Louise – what have you got for us?
Madeline: Okay, well, first we go for the obvious – magazines.
Louise: You know, Teen, Young Miss, Seventeen.
Madeline: Spin and Rolling Stone, especially to hit the guys.
Richard: I hear that Jane magazine also has a young, hip following.
Rory: How do you know about Jane magazine?
Richard: I have my ways, young lady.
Chip: We should also check about placing them in certain mall stores.
Richard: I also think we should go straight to the source.
Paris: The schools?
Richard: Why not? School bulletin boards, websites. We can set up tables at football games and pep rallies.
Emily: Well, how is everyone doing here?
Richard: Just fine, Emily.
Emily: Good. Is there enough food?
Richard: Yes, there is plenty of food.
Emily: What about ice cream? Would anyone like some ice cream?
Richard: Emily, we’re in the middle of a business meeting.
Emily: Oh, ah, well, I’m very sorry. Uh, go back to your business meeting.
Richard: Now, I think your projections for…

Emily: Do you want to talk about what happened?
Richard: Emily, don’t pry.
Emily: I’m not prying, Richard.
Richard: The girl obviously needs some peace.
Emily: How do you know that?
Richard: I can tell.

Severus Snape (Harry Potter): ISTJ

Dominant Introverted Sensing [Si]: Snape can’t let the past go. He’s cruel to Harry because Harry reminds Snape of James, who bullied him during his time at Hogwarts. He acts as though Harry is James, and often takes out his frustrations on him. At the same time, though, Harry reminds him of Lily, who he adored, and because he has her eyes, requests that they be the last thing he sees before he dies. He spends his entire adult life protecting Harry, because he’s Lily’s son. His patronus is a doe because hers was a doe. Everything Snape does is a result of his strong connection to his past and his feelings for a woman who has been dead for over a decade. His memories are so intense that they impact him just as much in the present as they did way back in his childhood. His memory is very subjective, though, and isn’t very good at trying to imagine the event from somebody else’s perspective, which is indicated in most of his interactions with Harry, who he views as an arrogant show-off, even though most people who actually know Harry (without preconceived judgments and bias) understand that he is anything but. Snape bases his present judgments on past experiences. If you get on Snape’s bad side, that’s likely where you will remain. Because Lupin was part of the group that bullied him as a child, Snape tries to sabotage his job at Hogwarts and is very cold to him as an adult. He also wrongly believed that Lupin was sneaking Sirius into the castle.

Auxiliary Extroverted Thinking [Te]: It drives Snape crazy when students slack off. He needs everyone at the top of their game, no exceptions. The incompetence of others aggravates him to no end. Snape is good at planning and strategizing. He is comfortable with quickly giving orders to others when he needs to. Snape has a very precise manner of speaks with authority. He enjoys wielding power of the students and is a stickler for the rules. Snape can be quite hard on those who are caught breaking them, advocating for very harsh punishments. Nobody is about the law or the rules of Hogwarts and people should obey or pay (Te-Fi). Snape wants things to work efficiently, so if something (such as potion) isn’t up to snuff, he will come up with an improvement.

Tertiary Introverted Feeling [Fi]: Snape does not communicate what he is feeling. That is private. For Snape to know and Snape alone. Harry only finds out about his past and all of Snape’s emotional scarring at the hands of his parents by going into his memory itself, watching it like a movie. Snape is enraged at this. He lashes out and makes Harry swear he won’t tell anyone what he saw. He makes Dumbledore promise not to tell anyone why he has switched sides. Snape doesn’t care about making things comfortable or harmonious for others. He doesn’t act differently depending on who he’s with. Snape is always true to who he is, even if who he is is grouchy, cold, and suspicious of others. He doesn’t hide his distaste for… well, everyone, really. Snape isn’t infiltrating and trying to bring down Voldemort’s regime because he cares about the greater good. He turns against Voldemort because he murdered Lily, who Snape loved very dearly. Back then, he only cared about Lily, and his only interest was in making sure she wasn’t harmed. He wants to protect Harry because Lily loved Harry and died to save him, not because Harry was an innocent child who deserved compassion. He is loyal to Dumbledore and does as Dumbledore asks, and, though he has respect for him, Snape has no trouble standing up to him when he believes Dumbledore is in the wrong (such as when he discovers what Dumbledore’s true plan for Harry is).

Inferior Extroverted Intuition [Ne]: One of the main ways Snape utilizes his Ne is by coming up with new spells and potions, or coming up with news ways to make existing ones. Sometimes, Snape’s intuition is good. His suspicions of Quirrell turned out to be justified. It was almost instantly evident to him that Lockhart was a phony. Snape only utilizes his Te to solve problems or improve things. He doesn’t just think creatively for the fun of it.

Note: I understand why a lot of people type Snape as an INTJ, but if I look at his motivations for his long-term goals (protecting Harry, stopping Voldemort), they come from Si, not Ni.

Enneagram: 5w4 Sp/Sx


Dumbledore: My word, Severus, that I shall never reveal the best of you? If you insist…

Snape: I have spied for you and lied for you, put myself in mortal danger for you. Everything was supposed to be to keep Lily Potter’s son safe. Now you tell me you have been raising him like a pig for slaughter —

Snape: Detention, Saturday night, my office. I do not take cheek from anyone, Potter . . . not even ‘the Chosen One.’

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!

Dumbledore: After all this time?
Snape: Always.

Snape: You want to be more careful. Hanging around like this, people will think you’re up to something. And Gryffindor really can’t afford to lose any more points, can they? … Be warned, Potter — any more night-time wanderings and I will personally make sure you are expelled. Good day to you.

Snape: I have already told you, I have no further stocks of Veritaserum. Unless you wish to poison Potter- and I can assure you I would have the greatest sympathy if you did- I cannot help you. The only trouble is that most venoms act too swiftly to give the victim much in the way of time for truth telling.

Harry: Yes, him – Quirrell said he hates me because he hated my father. Is that true?
Dumbledore: Well, they did rather detest each other. Not unlike yourself and Mr Malfoy. And then, your father did something Snape could never forgive.
Harry: What?
Dumbledore: He saved his life.
Harry: What?
Dumbledore: Yes … Funny, the way people’s minds work, isn’t it?

Snape: How extraordinarily like your father you are, Potter. He too was exceedingly arrogant. A small amount of talent on the Quidditch field made him think he was a cut above the rest of us too. Strutting around the place with his friends and admirers … The resemblance between you is uncanny.

Snape: What would your head have been doing in Hogsmeade, Potter? Your head is not allowed in Hogsmeade. No part of your body has permission to be in Hogsmeade.

Fudge: Ah well, Snape … Harry Potter, you know … we’ve all got a bit of a blind spot where he’s concerned.
Snape: And yet — is it good for him to be given so much special treatment? Personally, I try and treat him like any other student.

Caitlin Snow (The Flash): ISTJ

Dominant Introverted Sensing [Si]: Caitlin doesn’t seek out adventure or stimulation. She’s perfectly happy to be in the lab, going about her regular, day-to-day routine. She enjoys predictability and is content to work within an established structure. Caitlin’s past has a huge influence on who she is. Both of her parents were doctors, and that’s the only thing she’s ever wanted to be. While Caitlin enjoys helping Team Flash, was also very comfortable in her modest, regular life and would have been fine with having her career and marrying Ronnie. She doesn’t like having powers and wants to be normal. She enjoys her work and is always prepared, even keeping a blood sample kit in her purse. She has a difficult time moving on and letting go of the past. Following Ronnie’s death, Caitlin was in a state of depression for nearly a year, rarely laughing or smiling. She’s very cautious and doesn’t like to face the unknown. She couldn’t even bring herself to enter the room where Ronnie was killed during the particle accelerator explosion. She prefers to have as much information as possible before going up against a meta-human.

Auxiliary Extroverted Thinking [Te]: It’s difficult for Caitlin to believe in something that hasn’t been proven. She needs facts and evidence. Caitlin’s logical framework is external. Her knowledge comes from what she has read, seen, or experienced (Si-Te). She’s direct, focused, and stays on task. She doesn’t think up her own ways to do things. She sticks to what she knows. Caitlin has a lot of self-control and gets things done. She doesn’t let her emotions rule her or keep her from making logical decisions. When Caitlin explains something, she explains it in a very factual, unembellished way. She doesn’t speculate about things when she doesn’t see a concrete basis for it (unlike Cisco). Wells can’t be the Reverse Flash! He’s in a wheelchair!

Tertiary Introverted Feeling [Fi]: It’s not easy for Caitlin to open up about her feelings. She suppresses them because she doesn’t want them to take over. She establishes one-on-one connections and gives advice, which she often bases on her own, personalized experiences. Caitlin has a lot of compassion and, though she cares deeply for people, she maintains a very small circle. She’s loyal to Team Flash (when she isn’t Killer Frost, anyway) and devotes the majority of her time and energy to making Central City a safer place, which is important to her.

Inferior Extroverted Intuition [Ne]: Getting Caitlin out of her shell can be hard. She isn’t a spontaneous person and is partial to what is familiar to her. Her lack of imagination sometimes prevents her from keeping up with Cisco’s train of thought. She’ll often shoot down ideas that she deems to be unrealistic, or if she feels they have no rational basis. Her train of thought is clear and linear. Sometimes, Caitlin can get very worried about things that might go wrong. Thinking about the future (especially where her powers are concerned) causes her anxiety. Caitlin tends to take life very seriously, which is why she enjoyed being with Ronnie, who got her to loosen up and laugh.

Enneagram: 6w5 Sp/Sx (Probably 612 tritype)


Barry: I just noticed you don’t smile too much.
Caitlin: My once promising career in bioengineering is over, my boss is in a wheelchair for life, the explosion that put you in a coma also killed my fiancé; so, this blank expression kind of feels like the way to go.

Caitlin: I don’t understand. What do Dr. Wells and The Reverse-Flash have to do with each other?
Barry: Um… They’re the same person.
Caitlin: That’s impossible.
Barry: Look, Caitlin, it took me a long time to believe it too, but it’s him.
Caitlin: Dr. Wells is a speedster? He’s paralyzed.
Joe: Is he, though?
Caitlin: And why would he kill Barry’s mother? It doesn’t make any sense. Cisco. Say something.
Cisco: I’ve been having these dreams. Mostly at night, but sometimes during the day. But they don’t really feel like dreams. They… they feel real.
Barry: What happens in the dream?
Cisco: Dr. Wells is The Reverse-Flash. And… he kills me.

Caitlin: Cisco says I don’t have a life.
Barry: You don’t, do you?
Caitlin: I do! I cook and I eat and I read and I help you.
Barry: So what you saying is, you do everything that has nothing to do with having a life.

Caitlin: Trigeminal headache?
Cisco: What?
Caitlin: Trigeminal headache. Brain freeze.
Cisco: Then why don’t you just call it a brain freeze?

Jay: What’s Christmas?
Caitlin: Oh, well, it’s this holiday we have where we cut down trees and sing songs to celebrate the birth of a baby 2,000 years ago, and then the Romans killed him, so we give each other gifts…
Cisco: That’s your explanation?
Jay: I know what Christmas is.

Caitlin: I like you, Julian. I do. And I like that you like me, but I’m also afraid of my powers. And not what they could do to me, but what they could do to anyone who gets close to me.
Julian: Caitlin, I’m not afraid.
Caitlin: You should be. Fear me, Julian. It’s not a threat. Just… good advice.

Barry: I’m sorry. I didn’t mean to scare you, leaving like that.
Caitlin: It’s okay, I get it, you had to go. It’s just… that’s the last thing Ronnie said to me that night.
Barry: My mother died 14 years ago. I used to think that the further away I got from it the less it would hurt, but some days the pain is worse than the day that it happened. Some things you can’t fight.
Caitlin: For so long I’ve been terrified of going into that hole.
Barry: What if I went with you?
[They go down to the particle accelerator and Caitlin flashbacks]
Caitlin: He saved so many lives that day, and no one will ever know what he did.
Barry: I do. He was a hero.
Caitlin: I didn’t want him to be a hero, I wanted him to be my husband.

Caitlin: Please tell me this is a joke.
Lisa: Oh, you were right, Lenny. She is very uptight.
Caitlin: I am not uptight. You can’t call me uptight.

Caitlin: Cisco, I’m so sorry about how I overreacted. I understand why you told everyone.
Cisco: Never helps when we keep things from each other.
Caitlin: You’re right. And I’m glad that you told everyone. I’m just not very good at asking for help. I get that from my mom.
Cisco: You’re better than your mother.

Cisco: You’re being shut off. You’re being detached. You’re being cold.
Caitlin: Because I HAVE to be right now. I just watched Jay being killed right in front of my eyes, just when I was starting to feel normal again, just when I was beginning to love him. So, if I let myself feel, if I let all of that pain and anger out, it’s never gonna stop, and that’s not gonna help me, either, so let’s just get back to this research and figure out how to find King Shark.

Barry: How long have you known?
Caitlin: A few months. First, I didn’t want to accept what was happening to me, but then I had to. So then I tried to suppress my powers. There’s no suppressing these powers. I just can’t believe that this is my life.
Barry: It shouldn’t be. None of what’s happening to any of you should be.
What do you mean “any of us”?
Barry: I mean… Doctor Alchemy, Wally, you getting powers. Even Dante being dead in this timeline. It’s all because I created Flashpoint. Even Iris, who, I don’t know, I think she’s disappointed that she doesn’t have powers and everyone else does. And no matter what I do now, everything’s different.
Caitlin: So none of this happened before?
Barry: [shaking his head no] I’m sorry, Caitlin.

Caitlin: Both of my parents are doctors. It’s all I ever wanted to be. Growing up, I used the Hippocratic Oath. I was obsessed with it. If anyone was gonna step on a bug, I would say, “Do no harm.” It’s built into my DNA. Unfortunately, my DNA isn’t what it used to be. So, believe me when I say answer every one of my questions, or I will harm your family. Who is Alchemy?
