Crimson Peak: Sir Thomas Sharpe [INFJ]

MAJOR SPOILERS. OFFICIAL TYPING by Charity / The Mod.

Introverted Intuition (Ni): Thomas “senses” that Edith is “the one” when he first meets her, in a sense setting off his own release from the forces of darkness ensnaring his ancestral home. She is the butterfly amid the moths, stench, and darkness that is an ensnaring past. His entire life has been built around and devoted to one purpose: perfecting his machine and bringing the old mines back to life. He works tirelessly to that end, and also is a capable inventor, able to come up with beautiful designs for mechanics in his head and bring them to life (the paper moth he gave his sister as a child).

Extroverted Feeling (Fe): He has no internal morals of his own, and is guided from childhood through emotional manipulation, with Lucille appealing to his compassion, his sense of protectiveness toward her, and his love for her. He turns around and uses those emotions to strike up an immediate kinship with Edith, that quickly becomes love and a desire to protect her, due to her appeals for her to help him. Yet, even as he does so, he is terrified of what Lucille may say or do; that she will find out and be hurt. He still, foolishly, believes that if he can get her away from the house, all of them can live happily ever after.

Introverted Thinking (Ti): His invention is ingenious, but he had to devise its logic all on his own. He is a quick problem solver, and enjoys taking things apart and remaking them, sometimes into a better mechanical creation. Thomas gradually begins to question his sister and her motivations, to dissect his own behavior, and to see what a horrible situation he is ensnared in.

Extroverted Sensing (Se): Once away from the house, Thomas changes and becomes more able to enjoy his environment. He impulsively chooses Edith instead of one of her friends at the dance (he is also a flawless dancer!), then marries and takes her away quickly. He consummates their marriage, though he never intended to at the start, and places himself in mortal danger to save her.

Note: This is based on the novelization.
