Waddup Savi Crew!
Last week, I continued my Character series where I used four of my own characters—from my Episode story Manhattan Prep—to demonstrate the strength and weaknesses of the 16 different personality types utilising the 16Personalities profiles. If you missed that blog post, feel free to check it out here.
This week, I will be featuring another four of my own characters who display four more personality types. These (and the ones featured next week and following week) will be minor characters. Today’s minor characters: witty Cassie; sporty Leah and her brooding older brother, Logan; and budding fashionista, Mallory. Once again, a quick disclaimer: The personality profiles listed below were sourced from the official Myers-Briggs Foundation website: https://www.16personalities.com/personality-types
Cassie is a natural comedian and proud half African-American, half Native-American who lives with her mother, Loni and older sisters, Nicole and Emily (she has never met her father). She is thick-skinned, resilient and always has a clever comeback. She tends to see the lighter side of any situation. She is slightly boy-crazy and believes alcohol is a necessity when it comes to having a good time. Cassie is an ESTP who would rather crack practical jokes than crack open a book.
ESTP (Extroverted + Sensing + Thinking + Perceiving) – “Entrepreneur” | Laughing and entertaining with a blunt and earthy humour. | Strengths: Bold; rational and practical; original; perceptive; direct; sociable. | Weaknesses: Insensitive; impatient; risk-prone; unstructured; may miss the bigger picture; defiant.
Leah is a sassy Latina and candid sports junkie who lives with her mother, Claudia; father, Rogelio; grandmother, Hilda and older brother, Logan (who she always competes with). She loves gossip as much as she loves food and doesn’t like to be told she cannot do something. She plays soccer (her favourite sport) and hopes to make it to the World Cup and later manage her own team when she gets older. Leah is an ISTJ who wants to make the Manhattan Prep varsity soccer team.
ISTJ (Introverted + Sensing + Thinking + Judging) – “Logistician” | Logisticians’ dedication is an excellent quality, allowing them to accomplish much. | Strengths: Honest and direct; strong-willed and dutiful; very responsible; calm and practical; create and enforce order; Jacks-of-all-trades. | Weaknesses: Stubborn; insensitive; always by the book; judgemental; often unreasonably blame themselves.
Logan lives with his mother, Claudia; father, Rogelio; grandmother, Hilda and younger sister, Leah. His best friend is Dario who he has known since the second grade. He has a nickname (Logie Bear) which Leah calls him because he was a chubby kid. Brooke later develops a crush on him when he helps Leah make the soccer team and stands up for feminine rights against the chauvinistic Manhattan Prep coach. Logan is an ENFP who encourages Dario to get tutored by Kate.
ENFP (Extroverted + iNtuitive + Feeling + Perceiving) – “Campaigner” | Campaigners are fiercely independent, and crave freedom. | Strengths: Curious; observant; energetic and enthusiastic; excellent communicators; know how to relax; very popular and friendly. | Weaknesses: Poor practical skills; find it difficult to focus; overthink things; get stressed easily; highly emotional; independent to a fault.
Mallory is an aspiring fashion enthusiast and assertive Vietnamese-American who lives with her mother, Kim; stepfather, Joe and younger brother, Mason. She likes to match her hair and eye colour with her clothing. Most boys attracted to Mallory are usually intimidated by her tall stature and ultra-feminist ways. Conversation-wise, she is long-winded and has no filter with regard to inequality and racial injustice. Mallory is an INFP who is seeking inspiration for her latest fashion idea.
INFP (Introverted + iNtuitive + Feeling + Perceiving) – “Mediator” | Mediators have a talent for self-expression and revealing their beauty. | Strengths: Idealistic; seek and value harmony; open-minded and flexible; very creative; passionate and energetic; dedicated and hard-working. | Weaknesses: Too idealistic; too altruistic; impractical; dislike dealing with data; take things personally; difficult to get to know.
Be sure to tune in next week where I will be giving examples of four more personality types with four of my own characters and highlighting each types’ strengths and weaknesses once again using the 16Personalities profiles (basically Myers-Briggs 2.0).
Anyways, I’m rambling again which means it’s time to sign off… Toodles for now. And remember, no matter where you live, take a little time to enjoy the island life! Happy Writing!
