Alice in Wonderland / Through the Looking Glass: Chessur (the Cheshire Cat) [ESTP]


Extroverted Sensing (Se): Chessur is aware of his surroundings; he knows when the right time to disappear is and the first thing he notices in Alice is the scratch in her arm. Unlike his friends, the events of Horounvendush Day doesn’t seem to have affected him as much, however he still feels guilty for abandoning them. He has a tendency to disappear and notice fairly quickly whenever something dangerous happens. He also helps the others explore the Red Queen’s vegetable castle in search for the Hatter’s family.

Introverted Thinking (Ti): Chess has a playful approach to logic in his word plays: “It’s not impossible, merely unpossible”. He comes up with the clever idea of passing as the Hatter to save him and (in the books) tells Alice it doesn’t matter what path she takes because all of them will take her somewhere.

Extroverted Feeling (Fe): Chessur is charming and flattery. He offers to help Alice healing her wound, flatters the Hatter’s Futterwacken and is very sad at the fact Tarrant is deeply hurt about what happened on Horounvendush Day. Fortunately, he is able to redeem his mistake and regain the Hatter’s trust by saving him from execution and completely joining the Resistance. He also volunteers to slay the Jabberwocky before Alice makes her decision and is present at the battle to offer support.

Introverted Intuition (Ni): Chess’ intuition helps him detect danger, which helps him in knowing when to disappear, however he doesn’t seem to use this function much since he doesn’t particularly tend to play with ideas and prefers to pursue physical things, like Tarrant’s hat.

If you know someone who’s depressed, please resolve never to ask them why. Depression isn’t a straightforward response to a bad situation; depression just is, like the weather.

Try to understand the blackness, lethargy, hopelessness, and loneliness they’re going through. Be there for them when they come through the other side. It’s hard to be a friend to someone who’s depressed, but it is one of the kindest, noblest, and best things you will ever do.

First love is unrequited ultimately because it’s so huge. It’s such an act of giving and it requires so much back that it can never be given back. It’s like an atom bomb…It’s all the energy of who you are and who you want to be and what you love and what you hope to be explodes. It is impossible for a single…human being to offer that back to you in a mutual way.
Swearing is a really important part of one’s life. It would be impossible to imagine going through life without swearing and without enjoying swearing… There used to be mad, silly, prissy people who used to say swearing was a sign of a poor vocabulary -such utter nonsense. The people I know who swear the most tend to have the widest vocabularies and the kind of person who says swearing is a sign of a poor vocabulary usually have a pretty poor vocabulary themselves… The sort of twee person who thinks swearing is in any way a sign of a lack of education or a lack of verbal interest or -is just a fucking lunatic… I haven’t met anybody who’s truly shocked at swearing, really, they’re only shocked on behalf of other people. Well, you know, that’s preposterous… or they say ‘it’s not necessary’. As if that should stop one doing it! It’s not necessary to have coloured socks, it’s not necessary for this cushion to be here, but is anyone going to write in and say ‘I was shocked to see that cushion there, it really wasn’t necessary’? No, things not being necessary is what makes life interesting -the little extras in life.
