Clue MBTI: The Sensing Functions

Clue-functions-05Scarlet

Miss Scarlet: Extraverted Sensing (Se)

Miss Scarlet’s the least panicky and frightened of any in the group (at least at first), unintimidated by her eerie surroundings and seemingly eager to see what plays out. She uses her sultry good looks to her advantage—when her car breaks down on the way up to the mansion, she shows a little leg to an oncoming car and hitches a ride. She isn’t shy at all about her line of work, and when everyone else is protesting their innocence, she proudly owns up to running an escort service. She sees nothing wrong in profiting from the world’s oldest profession, catering to the very natural needs all men have. She’s smart and capable, but sometimes misses the point of the absurd wordplay in conversation (“Why would he want to kill you in public?”).

Best Suggestion: ESFP

Clue-functions-06Yvette

Yvette: Introverted Sensing (Si)

I hate to use the servant as the example of Si, but bear with me here. Yvette is a stand-in for the many trusty stewards in old-fashioned murder mysteries, knowledgeable and competent and attentive to detail. They’re studied experts at various handy skills. They’re the ones who have been around forever and know every nook and cranny of their home. They know its history, too, and all the good, juicy stories about the locals. Yvette gathers information for her employers (both Mr. Boddy and Miss Scarlet), and she’s trusted to execute the careful steps of Wadsworth’s plot. She tends to the order of the house, and has a great deal of seasoned experience in her, um, profession. She’s afraid of the dark, and grows more anxious and terrified as the evening spirals beyond the expected plan.

Best Suggestion: ISFJ
