Cyrano de Bergerac, Edmond Rostand

Fi: Cyrano doesn’t adopt the morality of the people around him but instead has his own ideas of right and wrong. He is absolutely sure that the unconventional combination of his poetry and Christian’s voice is the way to go when Christian wants to pursue Roxane. When the theater crowd wants Montfleury to perform, he disagrees vehemently and has no problem making his opinion known. Cyrano is unapologetically true to self, valuing authenticity to the point of taking offense at being assumed to be anyone but his true self. He feels his emotions deeply but is reluctant to share them with anyone but his closest confidante, Captain Le Bret.

Ne: Cyrano is highly creative, and is known not only as a poet but also as a talented swordsman, musician, physician, etc. He is able to come up with multiple poetic images for expressing one idea. He is also able to generate ideas very quickly, to the point of being able to create eloquent poetry on the spot, whether that be in the middle of a conversation or in the middle of a sword fight.

Si: Cyrano has a firm recollection of many of his past experiences. He nostalgically remembers the times that he spent with Roxane in his youth. Often, he has a difficult time letting go of his past; his hesitance to court Roxane stems from his memories of being rejected by others due to his appearance.

Te: Once Cyrano has his mind set on an outcome, he has no problem organizing accordingly and giving direct commands. In certain areas he is quick to make decisions that he sticks to uncompromisingly. His response to commentary on his nose is never to shy away but to fight back, whether it be verbally or physically.
