Romy and Michele's High School Reunion: Romy White/Michele Weinberger [ENFP]


Extroverted Intuition (Ne): Romy and Michele are obsessed with redefining who they are and changing people’s perceptions of them. On the way to their High School reunion, wanting show a new persona of themselves, they get lost in a tornado of ideas as to how to achieve this, and further lost in the subsequent fantasies of success and love that could result after said reunion. Their scope is extremely ambitious and ultimately proves to be more than they bargained for, although they are quick at readjusting. 

Introverted Feeling (Fi): The girls are going to the reunion with the objective of impressing people and getting long due validation. Little will they eventually realize that this means squat to them. They merely want to be accepted for who they are and the constant harsh criticism they receive is extremely hurtful to them. In their eyes, they have been nothing but nice and accepting of others so they are dumbfounded that people still insist on being so mean to them. 

Extroverted Thinking (Te): At some point, it hits them that there are massive holes in their story. It’d be nice to have an actual explanation as to how they got so rich. So they figure they’ll lie about being the ones who invented Post Its. Makes sense: It explains their success and in the mid 90’s there’s probably not anyone who’s going to Google this anyways. The girls are also kinda brash and ’‘in your face’’ with their rebuttals when someone attacks them. Although sometimes their counter-arguments are a bit off and lost on people (Ne). 

Introverted Sensing (Si): The entire plot device of the movie is that Romy and Michele have never been able to let go of the pain they experienced in high school. They remember in vivid details all the horrible titbits that have happened to them. They essentially want to “escape” who they once were, only to ultimately realize that there is nothing wrong with them and the popular kids were not all they seemed anyways.
