Welcome to the 2nd Princess Personality article! Like the previous article about Belle's personality, this one about Snow White is still using the MBTI assessment.
SNOW WHITE IS...
1. Extraverted link
Have high energy
Talk more than listen
Think out loud
Act, then think
Like to be around people a lot
Prefer a public role
Can sometimes be easily distracted
Prefer to do lots of things at once
Are outgoing & enthusiastic
Although Snow White was without human companion under her stepmother's wicked rule, she had plenty of animal friends. In fact, Snow White was always surrounded with animal friends! She didn't keep her thoughts inside herself, but shared them with her animal friends. "Want to know a secret? Promise not to tell?"
She loved to be around people, in this case, the animals and the dwarfs. She did lots of things at once! She swept the floor, cleaned the table, and washed the clothes with the help of the animals. And she was certainly outgoing and enthusiastic.
2. Sensing link
Focus on details & specifics
Admire practical solutions
Notice details & remember facts
Are pragmatic - see what is
Live in the here-and-now
Trust actual experience
Like to use established skills
Like step-by-step instructions
Work at a steady pace
Intuitive people are idea people, while Sensing people are "doers." Clearly Snow White belongs to the "doers" type.
When she came to the dwarfs' house, Snow White quickly noticed something: the house was so dirty. She used her "established skills," that is, cleaning the house. My, Snow White was good at it since she did it many times in the castle!
She was practical and worked at a steady pace. She kept on working and only went to sleep when the work was done (except cooking).
3. Feeling link
Decide based on their values & feelings
Appear warm and friendly
Are most convinced by how they feel
Are diplomatic and tactful
Value harmony and compassion
Take many things personally
Are quick to compliment others
Are motivated by appreciation
Avoid arguments and conflicts
Snow White is a REAL feeling type. She had a compassion toward a little bird who, she thought, was lost in the forest. "Where's your mama and papa?"
Snow White was quite careful and tactful. When the animals ran away from her, she sang "With a Smile and a Song" to show that she was harmless. She did not just tell the dwarfs to wash; she asked to see their hands first.
She disliked conflicts; she was so greatly disturbed when Grumpy didn't like her that she prayed, "Please make Grumpy like me."
4. Perceiving link
Like to keep their options open
Are playful and casual
Are less aware of time and may run late
Prefer to start projects
Play first, work later
May have difficulty making some decisions
Question the need for many rules
Like to keep plans flexible
Want the freedom to be spontaneous
Snow White liked to work. Perhaps for her, working is playing. Her song while working explained that she was happy doing that. "So hum a merry tune..."
She is playful too. She teased Grumpy when he refused to wash. "Cat got your tongue?" Behind her sweet looks and manners, Snow White is secretly a humorous girl!
We don't know how she responded to rules, but it seems that Snow White did not follow any rule. She just did what she loved - being spontaneous and flexible. She baked pies because she liked to do it. Nobody told her to.
SNOW WHITE IS AN ESFP - THE PERFORMER
The characteristics of an ESFP (Extraverted, Sensing, Feeling, Perceiving) person:
- Loves people and new experiences
