Functional Order: Te-Si-Ne-Fi

Judging Functional Axis:

Extroverted Thinking (Te) / Introverted Feeling (Fi)

President Coin is a tactical thinker. When they are under fire, she quickly figures out from their haphazard bombing patterns that the enemy doesn’t know where their facility is located, so she orders them not to use their weapons to avoid giving it away. She is willing to negotiate with Katniss for Peeta’s life to get what she wants (even though she does not like Peeta, and considers him a traitor, she’s aware of the fact that the Resistance needs Katniss’ participation to succeed). Once she takes power from Coin, she establishes a new government and appoints herself as temporary acting president, until they can vote in a new government. Coin keeps most of her personal feelings hidden, and puts them aside for the greater good; she is impatient when Katniss’ trauma doesn’t allow her to be objective, because she sees her emotions as blocking her usefulness (a common low emotional sensitivity issue in under-developed Te-doms).

Perceiving Functional Axis:

Introverted Sensing (Si) / Extroverted Intuition (Ne)

She has directed and maintained a low-level resistance from the beginning, and is aware of how to accomplish the take-down of the Capital through persistent rebellions, taking advantage of building resentment over the treatment of the Victors, and seeing and using Katniss as a rallying point for the other Districts. All of this requires attentiveness to detail and awareness of how reality works. Her reasoning shows itself at its most brutal, when she proposes a final set of Hunger Games with the Captial’s children. Katniss’ own realization that Coin is going to become as ruthless and brutal as Snow, by repeating the methods he used to control people, is what gets Coin killed. She does not always trust her own insights, so she turns to others for ideas (Plutarch often is her visionary, and she runs with his notions). Coin tends to think negatively about the future at times; when Katniss fails to produce a decent video, she assumes Katniss is worthless until Haymitch suggests a change of environment to elicit a genuine emotional reaction from Katniss.

Enneagram: cp 6w5 so/sp

Coin is a deliberate, tactical thinker, who is also suspicious and not inclined to trust anyone too easily. She has her doubts about Peeta, and she does not like Katniss, seeing her as weak and ineffective. She focuses on gathering like-minded people about her, and on defying the Capital, whom she sees as a corrupt and unfair society (her counter-phobic 6 stance attacks what she fears by standing up to it). She can also be forceful and even violent in how she retaliates, but she also looks for a group consensus; when she wants to establish their own Hunger Games, she asks for outside input. Her 5 wing is self-reliant, secretive, and trusts herself when it comes to making decisions. As an so/sp, she is focused on group achievement (survival, victory) ahead of her own needs.
