Vertigo: Judy Barton [ISFJ]

Functional Order: Si-Fe-Ti-Ne

Perceiving Functional Axis:

Introverted Sensing (Si) / Extroverted Intuition (Ne)

Judy came to the city a naive country girl, unaware of the ways of men, and was quickly duped by two of them — one who seduced and abandoned her, and another who convinced her to play the role of his wife to mislead Scottie and then wanted nothing more to do with her. Though it would be prudent for her to leave the city after they play the trick of Scottie, she remains local out of her fondness for him and her own lack of interest in changing her situation or environment. Her interactions with Scottie set the tempo for their ongoing relationship and establish an emotional intimacy that does not fade once she sheds the illusion of being someone else. She’s enough aware of the vast differences between herself and Madeline to avoid any real crossover in their conversations, other than a physical resemblance. Scottie says her “sentimentality” in keeping a piece of Madeline’s jewelry was her undoing, because she forgot and wore it in his presence. As their relationship progresses, Judy becomes more and more uncomfortably aware of his attempts to recreate Madeline, and fearful of the potential consequences. But she remains stuck in the routine of their relationship and unable to move beyond it, because of her love for him and her lethargy in changing her situation.

Judging Functional Axis:

Extroverted Feeling (Fe) / Introverted Thinking (Ti)

Tragically, Judy seems more alive when she is pretending to be someone else — she adopts her mannerisms, her sexuality, her confidence, and stoicism, and loses all of these things once she sheds the role. As Madeline, she is warm and extroverted, but as herself, she is introverted and awkward. She lives and breathes her emotions, and is forthcoming with them. Though it’s dangerous for her to see Scottie after participating in misleading him, she allows her feelings to drive her into his arms once again, and also bends her will to his when he seems determined to “make her” in Madeline’s image. As Madeline, Judy was able to appeal to him on an emotional level, to convince him she was someone else, and even fall in love with him. She finds herself unable to detach from these feelings and pursues them at great potential danger to herself, showing her inability to move on or analyze her own choices beyond her desire to commit to him.

Enneagram: 9w1 sexual

Judy has no real sense of herself and has “forgotten” herself, in the way 9s are prone to doing. Instead, she merges with her loved ones and capitulates to their demands, to keep them from abandoning her or withdrawing their affections from her. In that sense, she has been chasing love her entire life, but her own extremely passive nature has led her into abusive situations — and Scottie is no exception. Though deeply uncomfortable with his attempts to recreate Madeline in her, she allows him to do it — continually giving in, hoping to maintain peace, harmony, and affection between them. She can be a little naive, but also becomes more 6ish under stress — nervous, fearful, distrustful of his intentions, and even paranoid about the tower. Her 1 wing wants to do the right thing and own up to her mistakes.
