Nashville: Scarlett O'Connor (ISFJ)


Introverted Sensing (Si): Scarlett sees her life through her own image of what it means to be normal, to be herself.  She falls into patterns and routines very quickly and finds it scary and difficult to escape, needing to think before taking chances or risks. While she rarely goes into situations with a judgment or evaluation already made, she is generally reluctant to push too far beyond her comfort level or boundaries. Indeed, her connection to her past, her family, and known systems of support is essential to her and she works to maintain them, even when it’s not the healthiest of relationships.

Extraverted Feeling (Fe): When Scarlett turns toward evaluating situations, she relies on social expectations and norms.  She takes cues well when it comes to acting in a socially appropriate way—and she is very good at knowing what others expect of her and adapting her behavior and arguments to the situation.  She’s not afraid to call out others when they aren’t acting in their best interests—she will let them know when they are being self-destructive.  On the other hand, when it comes to her own relationships, Scarlett often is willing to let others take the lead.

Introverted Thinking (Ti): As far as logic goes, Scarlett tends to use her own standards and justifications for doing things.  She finds it difficult to explain why she has the attitudes and opinions she does, and looks toward others to help stand up for her.  This is reflected in her songwriting process, in which she tends to deprecate her own ability to create beautiful songs because her process is so internal.

Extraverted Intuition (Ne): Scarlett is capable of putting on one heck of a show by getting into a different mindset for short bursts—but finds it difficult to be so removed from her real self for too long. She struggles with her fears of what could happen if she goes beyond her comfort area. In fact, she can often imagine a plethora of potentially negative consequences of changing her situation. She is capable of seeing many different possibilities, and struggles with letting go of any of them, especially if it means hurting someone in the process.
