Introverted Sensing (Si): Anne’s entire world, prior to becoming a nanny, revolves around her interest in anthropology and the study of different social structures in individual environments. She finds ways to relate and tie her experiences into her knowledge of history and culture. Annie is very practical, down to earth and studious in her responsibilities, although sometimes her own childhood and upbringing overrules the “rules” imposed by her employers (leading her to get “Grover” to try out such things as peanut butter and jelly from a jar). Annie tries to acclimate to her environment, and keep the house rules, while also passing judgment on the behavior of Grover’s parents…
Extroverted Feeling (Fe): … because they ignore his emotional needs and don’t take him into consideration when making their decisions – even going so far as to take away Annie and his brand new puppy on the same day. Annie is a very kind, considerate person, eager to please, sensitive to the emotions of everyone around her, and also prone to withholding the truth from her mom out of fear of condemnation or disapproval (choosing to be a nanny instead of a lawyer). Annie finally reaches a point of emotional turmoil where she vents her feelings to her employers through the nanny cam, but even then is compassionate enough to give them the benefit of the doubt and not hold a grudge.
Introverted Thinking (Ti): She is analytical in her interest in different cultures and peoples. She uses reason and logic to figure out how to appeal to Grover and to critique his parents’ behavior. Annie is interested in knowing why people make the decisions they do, but is so caught up in an angst-ridden environment that her emotions tend to take over first.
Extroverted Intuition (Ne): Her creativity shows in the different things she introduces Grover to, as well as her tendency to daydream a bit (imagining that she will be Mary Poppins). Annie comes up with creative projects to do with her charge, and is capable of sensing the underlining behavior of her employers (emotional loneliness, workaholic-ism, and a lack of structure).
