Your Ni has frankly astounded me with its insight regarding my brother’s wife. The synchronicity is extraordinary, as on the exact day you made your comment, my brother and his wife arrived in New Zealand for a holiday. They are here for just over 3 weeks and will be staying with us for most of that time. Our relationship has recovered from the infamous towel incident a couple of years ago, and I was truly looking forward to spending some quality time with them both. We’ve enjoyed a few quiet days together as they recovered from the jet lag and today they’re off to visit our good friend in Wellington for a few days.
I’ve been developing my type-watching skills since I last saw them (I recently presented to our local MBTI group on the topic of visual cues to the type functions) and so I am now certain that my sister in law is an INFJ. Yesterday, they were traveling by bus and she noticed an unusual image on a store front logo that so intrigued her she asked me about it when I got home from work. My ISFP brother was amazed that she knew it somehow related to the old Stanley Kubrick movie, The Shining. It didn’t take me long to find the image online (it was from the distinctive carpet pattern representing a labyrinth - one of the themes of the movie)
She suffers from severe epilepsy and recently has had a spate of full-on Grand Mal fits for the first time in many years. Her fascination with this unusual image triggered my own Ni, and so I gently suggested that she should read about the symbolism of mazes and labyrinths as there was likely a psychological connection to her recent fits. A classic INFJ-INFJ interaction that was quite special for both of us.
And as for the hissy- fit over the stupid hand towel during our UK trip, even though she initiated the argument, in hindsight, it was actually me who lost his temper and had the minor Mommie Dearest moment, while she remained calm and composed during the incident. I have a fiery Sagittarius Mars in my birth chart, and during some recent soul-searching have come to recognize how it expresses itself through harsh language and raised voice when I get angry, rather than the more physical expression of anger generally ascribed to Mars.
So on a whim, I looked up Faye Dunaway’s birthchart to confirm another intuition, and sure enough, she also has Mars in Sagittarius!
No wonder I’ve recently been so obsessed with her bizarre performance in Mommie Dearest!
