Functional Order: Ne-Ti-Fe-Si
Perceiving Functional Axis:
Extroverted Intuition (Ne) / Introverted Sensing (Si)
Stiles does all of his thinking and theorizing in the moment, often reaching the right conclusion and then sometimes abandoning it (him joking Scott is a werewolf and then actually believing it with more evidence). He connects the dots easily and improvises in the moment, sometimes reaching conclusions too late to do anything about it (figuring out the identity of the alpha). His brain moves quickly and he throws out ideas at his friends. He is better at thinking in the long term than Scott, foreseeing and spelling out the potential consequences of his actions to him (the hunters killing him, Allison finding out the truth, Derek being problematic, etc). He runs away from his past and the death of his mother, but is also sentimental and dislikes the idea of them all changing and moving in separate directions in adulthood, once they graduate.
Judging Functional Axis:
Introverted Thinking (Ti) / Extroverted Feeling (Fe)
Sarcastic and quick-witted, Stiles often comes up with logical solutions to problems that are not often, um, moral. He sees a chance to get his father drunk and get information from him, but rationalizes it by thinking he’s doing it for the greater good of all involved. He thinks (maybe correctly) that it might be in their best interest to let the Creature die, along with Derek. Stiles spends all his time thinking, attempting to solve the complex puzzles around him, and tries desperately to make sense of anything he cannot understand. Though reluctant to talk about his deeper feelings with his father (like how he felt after his mother’s death), Stiles is open and carefree in expressing his shallower feelings — lust for Lydia, his affection for Scott, his intense dislike for Derek. He reads Danny accurately and uses Derek to get under his skin, trading a flash of bare chest for a computer favor.
Stiles has a crazy, heady intense logical energy to him that bounces all over the place and is so erratic, his friends have trouble following it. He’s excited and stimulated by new ideas and concepts; he thinks Scott becoming a werewolf is pretty damn awesome at first, and then pretty darn scary, since he also sees how all of this could go very, very wrong (his 6 wing). Stiles radiates nervous energy whenever under stress, and is an easy strategist in thinking his way out of dangerous problems; he would rather play too safe than sorry (again, his 6) – yet most of the time, he cracks jokes, makes everything absurd, funny, or tries to keep the mood light. His 6 wing ranges between phobic and counter-phobic – challenging Derek and then backing off in order to keep himself safe. He has no problem laying down the hard rules and/or acting decisively without any moral hangups, but is often in bondage to his 6 wing’s need to, you know, survive.
