Lark Rise to Candleford: Queenie Turrill [ISFJ 9w1]

Functional Order: Si-Fe-Ti-Ne

Perceiving Functional Axis:

Introverted Sensing (Si) / Extroverted Intuition (Ne)

Queenie has great respect for the traditions and beliefs she was raised on, some of them pagan – such as reading tea leaves, seeing meaning in the departure of the bees, and sharing and imparting a lot of the local superstitions. She takes them more seriously than some of the other people in the hamlet, believing they have true power. Queenie uses her former experiences with others to weigh on how she interacts with them – when James Dowland comes back to town, she constantly references his childhood, comparing him to then and seeing how he has changed but also stayed the same. She does not much like change, and focuses on fulfilling the immediate sensory needs of her neighbors, but also likes to indulge in a bit of low Ne hypothesizing now and again – trying to find meaning in an old tapestry in the graveyard, then abandoning it when she feels unsettled by its messages to the community. She has vague expectations for the future, and trusts in intuition other than her own (looking to read tea leaves and other predictions).

Judging Functional Axis:

Extroverted Feeling (Fe) / Introverted Thinking (Ti)

Queenie is warm and comforting to others, but also puts up with a lot from Twister – her lazy, selfish partner and later, husband. She cares for him and all his needs. She looks after the children of the hamlet. She finds ways to bring others together, by drawing their thoughts back to what they have in common, and the community they share. She also feels better when she can open up to others – such as when she admits to Emma that her grandmother did steal those bees after all. Upsets in the community, and feuds between the two towns, disconcerts her, and makes her feel she has to put it right. Her low Ti makes her believe in the things that make sense to her, but that cannot be proven (her prophecies and tea leaves, seeking meaning in the tapestry, a belief in ghosts).

Enneagram: 9w1 social

Queenie is overly generous and tolerant to deal with her husband’s laziness even though it costs them so much (the rent money spent on frivolities, for example). She takes in orphaned children. She gives away her food. She is generous, self-sacrificing, and loving. If her friends need help, she turns up on their doorstep. But she can, at times, become angry about Twister taking advantage of her good nature, and lash out at him for being selfish, greedy, and taking her for granted — showing the 9’s occasional tendency to get fed up and let people have it. She can be whimsical, unrealistic, and a dreamer. Her 1 wing makes her principled, and concerned with doing what is “right” – she can’t sleep well at night unless she is honest and hard working.
