Okay, yeah, I’m still not done with this. Honestly it kinda bothers me that I was being a little biased in my decision so I’m going over it again, this time with a different criteria chart. (I realized halfway through that this is mostly for the workplace, but it doesn’t really change anything; we’re talking about Franziska here.) I’m also thinking she might be ENTJ, so I’m adding that possibility on here.
- ESTJ: Works in committees to optimize complex existing processes. (This is the closest option.)
- ISTP: Leave alone to putter.
- ENTJ: Creates by selling the idea; will not deal with details.
- ESTJ: Engages in manic pursuit of compliance with rules. (A big no, Franziska likes breaking the rules.)
- ISTP: Hides; overworks. (She doesn’t exactly hide, more like promptly leaving a place that causes her stress. She also overworks herself, albeit unconsciously.)
- ENTJ: Runs amok with Machiavellian maneuvers. (I’m not exactly sure what this entails, to be honest.)
- ESTJ: Stay in your office; trade projects instead of taking on everyone’s needs.
- ISTP: Go home; do something else. (She doesn’t like staying in one place; she likes to keep herself busy.)
- ENTJ: Make eye contact; listen mindfully to others.
Orientation to Groups:
- ESTJ: Groups are necessary to workplace morale and can be a good source of ideas. On the down side, groups often talk themselves into excessive risks (ESTJ). Consensus is vital to a successful group; debate is threatening.
- ISTP: Groups are an interruption to hands-on work. Groups are useful only if they involve demonstrating a well-tested new technique for achieving goals. (As shown in AAI, she often likes to work alone, but if she needs to, she (quite unwillingly) complies, as long as she gets to be in control. But after that she sends everyone on errands while she works by herself to gather information in the investigation.)
- ENTJ: Interaction is fun, but the fast-thinking ENT often feels held back by consensus-building processes or the different intellectual biases of team members. ENT’s lose interest if they feel cooperation is not forthcoming
Orientation to other people:
- ESTJ: Defends conformity. Other people are viewed as potential buddies as long as they behave. (Nope. She’s not very friendly and therefore definitely don’t see others as “potential buddies”.)
- ISTP: Evades. IS_P’s have little interest in other people.
- ENTJ: Prepares case. Strong ENT’s are focused on convincing others of their theory, using reason as the primary tool. (She’s a great voice of reason, and convincing others is one of her strong points.)
Orientation to ideas:
- ESTJ: All SJ’s have a strong preference for acceptable ideas that fit within an existing structure. SJ’s are best at applying others’ theories or doing the research that builds incrementally on an existing theory.
- ISTP: All SP’s have a strong preference for original solutions that work in the here and now. Someone else can come along behind them, fitting the solutions into a theory. Or not. The SP doesn’t care.
- ENTJ: All NT’s have a strong preference for original ideas organized into coherent structures. (Closest option, I think. I might go over this one again.)
Preferred problem to solve:
- ESTJ: Deal-maker: negotiates over concrete issues. (She doesn’t negotiate; either she stands her ground or completely changes it.)
- ISTP: “Why doesn’t the widget work?” (I’m not really sure what this means.)
- ENTJ: Discovering an overarching intellectual theory that works for others; then strategizing how to sell it. (Another closest option.)
- ESTJ: Maintaining order, continuity, and tradition within a group.
- ISTP: Excellent at tackling emergencies. Tend to offer flexibility to employees. (Franziska values her flexibility. She’s quick to think on her feet, and in emergencies she’s even quicker.)
- ENTJ: Selling innovative ideas; empowering others; making the tough decisions.
- ESTJ: Faced with new ideas, can become inflexible and judgmental. Misses trends and opportunities. Demands conformity as a moral good.
- ISTP: Space needs may seem invasive to others. Threatened by lack of flexibility. May seem insensitive. (THIS. So much. Remember that one time she ordered a surprise search at Acro’s room. Invasive and insensitive. And as mentioned, she values her flexibility. She doesn’t like anything that can potentially hinder her.)
- ENTJ: Subordinates may feel invaded, steamrollered, and left with inadequate guidance. The ENTJ can also come across as ruthless and disloyal.
- ESTJ: Friendliness. (That’s… so far from Franziska, literally.)
- ISTP: Wit under fire. (Closest option.)
- ENTJ: Inspiration. (I don’t think Franziska is the type who goes around giving inspiring or encouraging pep talks.)
- ESTJ: Folksiness; difficulty adapting to situations in which everyone isn’t of the same mind.
- ISTP: Tend to be overprepared or underprepared. (Overprepared, most of the time.)
- ENTJ: Can leave listeners feeling hornswoggled and bemused. (What the fuck does hornswoggled even mean.)
- ESTJ: All SJ’s want predictable rewards for behavior that conforms to expectations. Special rewards for exceptional effort irritate them just as much as missing a scheduled promotion.
- ISTP: All SP’s want more access to the resources they use for their tinkering. Ordinary rewards like money and fame are valued largely for what they translate to in access to tools.
- ENTJ: All NT’s want applause for performing impossible intellectual backflips. Scheduled promotions, atta-boys for making nice, and empty warmth annoy them. (This, without a doubt.)
Again, I did my best to be unbiased, and it seems between the three of them ISTP prevails. Again. Unless there are other types that threaten it, Franziska is an ISTP.
