Introverted Sensing (Si): Meg is more grounded than her sisters. She is content with life at home, but also yearns for a traditional life of her own – to get married and have children. Her parents instilled virtues and beliefs in her that reinforce her own views and belief systems (equality, abolition, and transcendence). Her reliability and the ease with wich she handles responsibility allows Marmee to entrust her with the household affairs in her absence.
Extroverted Feeling (Fe): She is very warm and encouraging toward her sisters, as well as shares her feelings openly. Meg finds it easy to take care of and empathize with Amy’s needs, and sometimes allows her compassion to overrule her better judgment. She cares very much that her behavior reflects dignity and social appropriateness (she doesn’t want Laurie part of their theatrical group at first, is reluctant to admit to the “shameful” profession of playacting, and is careful not to show too much of her ankles in public). She thrives on the approval of men at the ball, and is hurt by Laurie’s open condemnation.
Introverted Thinking (Ti): Her ability to be serious and concentrate on practical aspects of life make her good at managing the household accounts. Meg is articulate in expressing herself, a good teaching instructor, and rational in her problem-solving skills. Her choices in life reflect intense scrutiny and analyzing both of past information and invents; Meg is able to review her decisions and reach conclusions about their impracticality or irrational behaviors (entrusting Amy with so much money, her behavior at the ball).
Extroverted Intuition (Ne): Her enjoyment of playacting and of reading her sister’s stories helps Meg develop a rich imagination and appreciate the endless possibilities life has to offer. But, she is also cautious of these things and prefers to have structure.
