Cecily Cardew: ENFP

The Importance of Being Earnest, Oscar Wilde

Cecily The Importance of Being Earnest ENFP

Extroverted Intuition (Ne): If she had her way, she would fantasise all day long about knights in shining armour. She loves to sensationalise all her visions of reality, adding an entire imagined history to her relationship with Algernon. She loves stories of any kind and gets excited when she learns that Miss Prism has written a novel. She prefers fiction to reality. Cecily is witty (classic Wildean epigram talker) and determined.

Introverted Feeling (Fi): She’s a romantic who falls in love quickly. Her behaviour is a bit eccentric, but she and Algy both like that about her. She would rather be true to herself than do what other people want her to do. Cecily may be an idiot, but she has opinions of her own that she has formed independently of others.

Extraverted Thinking (Te): Cecily doesn’t care about metaphysics or facts, and she does everything in her power to avoid learning anything new from Miss Prism. Gwendolen considers her innocent and ignorant, and Algernon is attracted to her single-mindedness.

Introverted Sensing (Si): Though eccentric, Cecily is capable of behaving as superficially well-mannered as the lot of Wilde’s characters (she and Gwen don’t start pulling each other’s hair until the Butler is out of sight). Though a country girl, Cecily has been raised to enter London as a prim and proper lady.
