Skyler White from ”Breaking Bad”
MBTI TYPE: ENFJ
Dominant function: Extroverted feeling (Fe)
Above all, Skyler is attuned to what is and what isn’t socially appropriate. She measures others’ peoples actions and judge them according to social patterns and conventions. All of her actions are very moral oriented and she has a strong social instinct, which allows her to act correctly in public and in an appropriate way. When Skyler discovered what her husband was doing she tried to disconnect from him, because she saw what his actions as something morally wrong. Skyler can have a very strong attitude when it comes to her values and morals: she refuses herself to do something that is morally wrong or something that others would see as wrong. She is constantly interacting with the social groups and she tries to get along with them, creating an outside harmony in her family, job, etc. Due to this, she can be very manipulative and cunning, since she knows how other people will react to her actions. However, she has some help from her next function: introverted intuition.
Auxiliary function: Introverted intuition (Ni)
Skyler is always aware of the big picture that is being played out on the behind of scenes. Consequently, she can do leaps in the thinking process, leaps that would come from the small details and clues that are present in the situation. For example, she deduced that Walter was selling drugs and she can easily predict how the future will unfold itself by reading the clues of the present situation. That makes her very cunning and able to manipulate the situations according to her will.
Tertiary function: Extroverted sensing (Se)
Skyler enjoys having a great time in the moment. She used to smoke a lot and in moments of stress she would refuge herself in alcohol. On the other hand, she enjoys having a good time with her family and with the people she is close to. This function will also allow her to see what is in the immediate environment; however, unlike Se dominant users, she bypass the sensory information that she receives and deduce the big picture that is behind the situation.
Inferior function: Introverted thinking
This is Skyler repressed function. Her actions are designed in order to promote an outside harmony, and that implies to repress cold logic and introverted analysis. However, in moments of stress, Skyler would become extremely critical of others actions, and she would use this function to punish others for their behavior. On the other hand, this function allows her to organize her internal thoughts in a way that would make her very manipulative and cunning, using hard cold logic to manipulate the situation.
As an actress, I realize that viewers are entitled to have whatever feelings they want about the characters they watch. But as a human being, I’m concerned that so many people react to Skyler with such venom. Could it be that they can’t stand a woman who won’t suffer silently or “stand by her man”? That they despise her because she won’t back down or give up? Or because she is, in fact, Walter’s equal? But I finally realized that most people’s hatred of Skyler had little to do with me and a lot to do with their own perception of women and wives. Because Skyler didn’t conform to a comfortable ideal of the archetypical female, she had become a kind of Rorschach test for society, a measure of our attitudes toward gender.”
