The Thinker: Logical, original, creative thinkers. Can become very excited about theories and ideas. Exceptionally capable and driven to turn theories into clear understandings. Highly value knowledge, competence and logic. Quiet and reserved, hard to get to know well. Individualistic, having no interest in leading or following others.
Notes: Typing Margaret asked me to decide, is she so blunt because she’s a T, or because she’s an Extrovert? She spends so much time alone, though, that question answered itself…
Introverted: Margaret is quite happy to run around outside, to read her books, and to explore the countryside around their cottage. She sometimes speaks up but much of the time prefers to watch and listen to others. She even crawls under a table to avoid having to speak with Fanny!
Intuitive: Her quest for new information makes Margaret appreciate the family library. She’s interested in new things and is always out catching fish in nets. She has a big imagination, but also an instinctive knack for knowing what people want. Margaret is convinced Edward loves Elinor, even if Elinor denies it!
Thinker: Margaret says whatever she believes is the truth, whether or not anyone cares to hear it. She isn’t always sensitive to the feelings of her sisters (such as blurting out things in a group). Margaret tends to be rather more rational than Marianne, but more imaginative than Elinor. She is, however, quite logical at times.
Perceiver: New experiences are something Margaret craves. She wants to go to London! She wants to become a pirate on the high seas! She complains that as women, she and her sisters must “sit around and wait for things to happen” to them, rather than making them happen themselves. If given the choice, Margaret would be spontaneous and excited by all future possibilities.
