Dominant Extroverted Feeling [Fe]: Is there a character who uses Fe more than Caroline Forbes? While she might be able to slip into a very confident public persona, Caroline is extremely insecure, neurotic, and vulnerable. She longs to be loved and admired by others. Caroline craves validation. She is very expressive with her feelings and can easily tell what other people are feeling. After becoming a vampire, she becomes much more comfortable with herself, and her formerly unhealthy Fe seems to mature and evolve. She is fierce, loving, protective, and kind. She cares very much about other people and hates seeing anybody hurt. She comforts people when they’re down and can easily talk about her feelings, as well as the feelings of others. Caroline cares deeply about her image and loves being in charge. Miss Mystic Falls, cheerleading, organizing dances and parties, you name it, Caroline has a hand in it. Most of the things she participates in serves to elevate her social status. Because she is so motivated by what others think of her, she tends to be an overachiever. Caroline is a complete control freak and needs everything to be just so. She is warm and sensitive and, when threatened or attacked, has no trouble using her Fe to take someone down. Caroline knows how to take charge and get things done. She has a knack for leadership and can sometimes be a bit bossy and overbearing. She inserts herself in other people’s problems and is a known meddler. Being extremely opinionated, Caroline is very quick to tell others when she feels they’re in the wrong. She can also be rather judgmental at times and inflexible in her ideals. Caroline adjusts remarkably well to being a vampire and, because of her capacity for empathy and goodness, is able to control her urges. She enjoys harmony, teamwork, and likes when everyone is happy and getting along.
Auxiliary Introverted Sensing [Si]: Caroline has a very difficult time letting go of the past. She learns through experience and trusts those prior experiences to judge new situations. She can be quite rigid, unforgiving, and stubborn when something threatens her Si impressions. She has a strong sense about the way things should be. She is also very passionate about all of the Mystic Falls traditions. Caroline is extremely detail-oriented and has a talent for organizing. Her Si supports her Fe in her planning of various town social events. Caroline likes things the way they are and uses her Fe to keep them that way.
Tertiary Extroverted Intuition [Ne]: As Caroline’s Ne develops, she becomes more open-minded. She learns to become more adaptable and to get less worked up about things that threaten her Si. When Caroline entertains ideas and possibilities, it is usually to achieve a specific goal or to solve a problem, rather than just for the sake of speculation itself.
Inferior Introverted Thinking [Ti]: It’s not easy for Caroline to put her feelings aside and make a logical choice. She gets so caught up in her emotions that her judgment can often get clouded. When she wants to, she can tap into her Ti to make assessments about people and situations. Because she is so focused on the emotions of other people, her inferior Ti sometimes causes her to project her own feelings onto others and leads her to incorrect conclusions.
Enneagram: 3w2 So/Sx
Caroline: I’m shallow. I’m worse than shallow. I’m a kiddie pool.
Caroline: Do you ever feel like there’s not a person in the world who loves you?
Caroline: If you want something done right, you have to do it yourself.
Caroline:I’m a terrible, awful person, but I’m working on it.
Caroline: So you’re saying that, now, I’m basically an insecure, neurotic, control freak on crack.
Tyler: Why are you helping me?
Caroline: What do you mean?
Tyler: Why do you care? We’ve never been friends before.
Caroline: That’s not true. I’ve known you for my entire life, Tyler.
Tyler: We’ve never been close. Not like this.
Caroline: I don’t know. You just seem like you kinda need it. I was alone when I turned. I had no control over my body or my urges. And I killed somebody. I don’t want that to happen to you. I don’t want you to be alone.
Caroline: I don’t hurt anyone, I swear. Dad, I swear. I can handle the urges. I can!
Caroline: I just want this school year to be great, you know? I just want everyone to be happy. Even in the midst of all the crazy unhappy bits.
Caroline: How did he plan a better party than me so fast? What? Is that a band outside?
Caroline: I get it. Your father didn’t love you, so you assume that no one else will either. And that’s why you compel people or you sire them or you try to buy them off. But that’s not how it works. You don’t connect with people, because you don’t even try to understand them.
Caroline: I’m sorry, but Stefan is your epic love and I’m not going down without a fight.
Caroline: Look. I’m your best friend. I would never pick sides. But, are you sure that this is what you want? Because Stefan is your soul mate! Sorry, picking sides.
Elena: Well, what was I supposed to do? Lie to him?
Caroline: No. But you weren’t supposed to let Damon weasel his way into your confused newbie vampire heart.
Caroline: Fine, friend-tervention. I think your so-called “feelings” for Damon are really starting to cloud your judgment and I don’t like it. And the thought of you two together really makes me want to barf.
Caroline: It’s just, as her best friend it’s my duty to warn her when she’s making a giant mistake, right?
Caroline: You help your friend, that’s what you do.
