Introverted Feeling (Fi): Elly is private about her personal life and lives a completely different lifestyle at home than she does on stage. She often flatly refuses to answer personal questions and says that La Roux is a character that is very different from herself. Her tendency to internalise stress leaves her with physical health problems such as the throat paralysis that caused her lengthy hiatus. Elly’s more recent work is honest and personal.
Extraverted Sensing (Se): Elly’s sudden rise to fame brought with it anxiety attacks and health problems. She says she doesn’t “know how to be a famous person,” and even as a celebrity, doesn’t involve herself much in the celebrity community. She has a love for fashion, particularly 80s fashion, and doesn’t want anybody else to have a style that’s remotely similar to her own (Ni nonconformity).
Introverted Intuition (Ni): Elly Jackson is a non-conformist who hates the idea of anyone else being even remotely like her. She doesn’t believe that she fits any gender labels. Her vibe is simultaneously ambiguous, yet extremely specific, and she’s tailored the character of La Roux to be this way from the start. She has dreamed of being a pop star from the time she was a little girl, but practically loathes the fame that has come with her success.
Extraverted Thinking (Te): Elly is intelligent and comes with formed opinions about pretty much everything. Even though she’s private about her personal life, Elly is not afraid to openly express the bits of her life that she selectively chooses to share with the public. Her communication style is articulate if not incredibly candid. Elly hates having to filter everything she says in public but does so to avoid letting people in on her personal life.
