Si: Elsa is perpetually in a self-made cage haunted by the past. Even after she professes to having “let it go” she’s really still holding on to it. Elsa is afraid of what her people will think of her for being different and practices social graces with astute determination to try to hide it. She is often so detail oriented that she fails to recognise the big-picture implications of current events as well as her own actions. For instance –freezing the entire kingdom goes beyond her notice because she’s so focused in on the minute details of her own circumstance. She has the tendency to make assumptions about circumstances and people before she’s reviewed all the evidence and to stick to those beliefs until undeniable evidence slaps her in the face.
Te: Elsa is a person who knows how to take action (except when overcome by her emotions). As soon as the people discover her secret, she doesn’t hesitate to weigh out the details (she’s already done that); she runs. She’s good at finding the most immediate rational solution and then jumping on it before it’s too late. At times, her emotions can overwhelm her, making her unable to utilise this great skill of hers, and she simply does nothing, or acts without thinking carefully.
Fi: Elsa keeps her suffering a secret for years, and is reluctant to talk about it even after it’s out in the open. Her emotions can make her irrational in stressful situations, but rather than expressing them in words, they burst forth in her actions (sometimes surprising even herself). Elsa dislikes feeling controlled or stifled, and would rather bear solitude as a sort of freedom than endure company while in a cage. She’s not very good at understanding other people’s motivations or emotions, thus her firm reluctance to ignore everything her sister says to try to convince her to come back. Of course, this is also due to her firm moral aversion to putting people in danger when there’s a possibility of preventing it.
Ne: Elsa’s intuitive side is rather weak (which is another reason I can’t understand why people think she’s INTJ). Her assumptions about people and situations under stress are not usually accurate, and she’s not particularly good at predicting the future. Instead, she catastrophizes, thinking up all the worst outcomes as inevitable facts, while ignoring all the positive possibilities. Furthermore, she doesn’t have firm beliefs in a good future for herself.
I’ve seen Elsa frequently typed as an INTJ, but typically by people who stereotype all distant-T-types as INTJs. Elsa is way too obsessed with her past to be an INTJ. Se users don’t really look back all that much.
Elsa is the most Si character ever to Si.
