Dumbo: Milly Farrier [INTP]

Functional Order: Ti-Ne-Si-Fe

Judging Functional Axis:

Introverted Feeling (Fi) / Extroverted Thinking (Te)

Milly is determined to be her own person, and resistant to anyone changing that about her. She loves and pursues science, but she never tries to explain why to her father other than “Maybe I don’t want everyone staring at me.” She has a very tender heart, but can seem somewhat distant and unemotional to others on a surface level. She inspires Dumbo, by reminding him that he’s part of their family and will always have those who love and support him. Milly tells her brother that they must “test” all their theories for validity and evidence, but also accepts that Dumbo can fly just having seen it. She doesn’t need to know why or how it’s happening, she just sees it as an opportunity for him to make enough money to buy back his mama, and uses that emotional motivation to keep him going (inferior Te).

Perceiving Functional Axis:

Introverted Thinking (Ti) / Extroverted Feeling (Fe)

Milly is all about scientific experiments and gaining a complete understanding of anything that catches her interest. She is emotionally detached and remote from her father, choosing to view his abandonment through a cynical lens. She is an effective problem-solver, and figures out how Dumbo is relying on his feather to fly. Milly tells her brother that they must “test” all their theories for validity and evidence. She is very curious about advancements, and opens her own futuristic picture show at the end of the film. Milly has a very tender heart, but can seem somewhat distant and unemotional to others on a surface level. She inspires Dumbo, by reminding him that he’s part of their family and will always have those who love and support him.

Enneagram: 5w4 self-preservation

Milly is detached and scientific. She keeps a wall up around her heart so she doesn’t get hurt. She insists on being logical, and thinking about / working her way through things before accepting them. She tends to be withdrawn, self-contained, and distant emotionally. Her 5 loves to read, study, and learn but finds it hard to step forward in an active role until she feels ready (her launching her own little scientific room at the circus later). Her 4 wing makes her independent and fierce about remaining authentic. She doesn’t want to be like anyone else in the circus, nor has any desire to blend in.
