Sister Act: Deloris Wilson [ESFP]

Functional Order: Se-Fi-Te-Ni

Perceiving Functional Axis:

Extroverted Sensing (Se) / Introverted Intuition (Ni)

Deloris decided as a kid, she had enough of her lousy town—so she went to Vegas, she became a Lounge Singer, and she… accidentally got romantically entangled with a mob boss. Oops. She bursts into his office to tell him off about giving her a lousy mink coat (which is also “fabulous”) and witnesses a murder. She then makes a run for it, tells the cops all about it, and winds up stuck in a nunnery until the trial. Except… that place is boring as hell to her, so she ‘gets into trouble.’ She leaves the compound, she almost gets into a bar brawl, and as a last resort, she undertakes training up the nuns so their choir doesn’t suck. But horrors upon horrors, Deloris brings in ‘hip’ music that brings fame and fortune and “butts into the church seats,” meaning… she could get found after all. Woops. She uses her newfound ‘piety’ to get herself out of a sticky situation, by pretending to be a nun while dressed as one. But thinking about the future, other than “I’m gonna be famous?” Nah.

Judging Functional Axis:

Introverted Feeling (Fi) / Extroverted Thinking (Te)

As a child, she strutted to the front of the classroom and proudly listed the apostles as John, Paul, George, and Ringo. When her teacher told her off, she just smiled. Deloris has always needed to be “herself.” If she doesn’t like you, you hear about it. She doesn’t much care about others’ feelings, either… she can be blunt, tactless, and argumentative, not wanting to bow to authority or have herself in any way ‘curbed’ from having a good time. Man, did you know nuns don’t even have sex?! But she manages to put on a smile, pretend to be nice, and even get the nuns to work together, to make a better choir. She does this by organizing them and figuring out how to pass a lot of the boring practice work onto someone who wants to do it. That way, Deloris just gets the praise and to hear the nice music, rather than having her ears burn listening to a bunch of white ladies who are “out of tune.”

Enneagram: 8w7 sx/so

Deloris has an argumentative nature and likes to be in charge; she sneers at her boyfriends’ attempt to buy her off with an expensive mink coat, she tells off everyone around her almost continuously (stop stealing my makeup!), and has a suspicious nature, prone to being against. She instantly correctly deduces that the Mother Superior does not like her, and does not take personally any of the insults the woman levels against her (even the one about having met her, she understands why so many people want her dead). As a child, she enjoyed offending her religious teachers, and pushing the rules — looking forward with excitement to a lifestyle of sex ‘n’ rock ‘n’ roll in the big city. Deloris hates the idea of confinement and boredom in a nunnery, especially since they don’t even allow sex! She intentionally bucks all the rules, refusing to go to bed at the assigned time and sneaking out to have fun at the bar across the street (never mind, she’s in a habit!). She knows when she ought to play stupid / innocent to save her own life. Her 7 wing just wants to have a good time. She finds a way to make teaching her new friends enjoyable, and has a hard time not talking about the inappropriate things she saw in Vegas. Her first instinct (a smart one) upon seeing her boyfriend ‘pop’ someone is to get the hell outta Dodge.
