Effie Trinket: ESFJ

The Hunger Games, Suzanne Collins

Effie Trinket ESFJ | The Hunger Games MBTI

Fe: Effie gets very emotionally attached to her tributes, and sobs over the ones who have died. She does everything she can to help them, though she tends to generalize people’s needs rather than figuring out exactly what they need. At the same time, she tries to customize her care to individuals, giving specific gifts to Katniss, Peeta and Haymitch in effort of uniting them as a team. Group unity is important to Effie, but she doesn’t really understand her own feelings.

Si: Effie cares effusively about manners and social customs. She’s precise in her instructions and gets upset when Katniss doesn’t follow them. She has a hard time understanding why other people don’t share her priorities and feels it her duty to “fix” their bad habits. Effie has a ritual for everything. Effie has a hard time accepting change, but prefers to keep everyone on a tight schedule and gets stressed out over small delays.

Ne: Effie likes to give Katniss and Peeta an “angle.” She assumes that people will read into certain behaviors and aspects of Peeta and Katniss’s presentation and so she tries to make make everything interpretable. She tries to make connections between seemingly unconnected things, such as giving everyone on her team gold bangles.

Ti: Effie’s Ti is quite underused. She acts more on her feelings than on her intellect. She’s easily fooled by conformity and Captitol ideology. She bases her choices and opinions on what makes sense to her and has a hard time understanding Katniss’s Te logic. She isn’t afraid to voice her opinions, and gets annoyed when people disagree.
