The Myers-Briggs® Character Sorts of the Howl’s Shifting Fort Characters

Howl Jenkins Pendragon (ENFJ)

ENFJ Wizard Howl

Howl comfortably manages the individuals round him with a powerful taste of Extroverted Feeling (Fe). This cognitive operate is the dominant operate of the ENFJ and offers them an consciousness of interpersonal interactions and feelings. When Howl saves Sophie from the invasive troopers who hit on her, Howl tells her, “Don’t maintain it in opposition to them” in a cheery method. Howl is at all times seeking to handle the emotional realm round him. All of Howl’s social corrections include a clean ease and consideration for the opposite speaker at hand.

When Howl finds Sophie (now an outdated lady) within the shifting fortress, Howl is nice and welcoming. He accepts her into the fold shortly, serving to her make breakfast and together with her beneath the label “good friend” alongside Calcifer and Markl, who he appears to have identified for a considerably better period of time. Regardless of making the meal for everybody else, Howl barely eats off of his personal plate earlier than giving Calcifer nearly all of his breakfast and telling him to maneuver the fortress. Howl seems fairly giving to and accepting of the individuals in his realm. Essentially the most excessive instance is perhaps most witnessable when Sophie virtually kills Calcifer as she’s cleansing (she places him right into a pot in order that she will be able to clear out the ashes across the fireplace) and Howl tells Sophie kindly, “I’d admire it if you happen to didn’t torment my good friend.” Howl’s corrections are at all times very refined and conscious of how far he can push, permitting a number of individuals to get their wants met via the identical socially corrective message. Even throughout what may very well be heated discussions with Madame Suliman, Howl retains the social ambiance calm and accommodating. It’s unclear if Howl holds robust, inherent values as one would anticipate from an Introverted Feeling (FP) kind —other than the second he tells Sophie that she’s his purpose to battle—however his managing of individuals is witnessed repeatedly. The one time Howl loses his sense of social mobility is when logic is introduced into play when Sophie arranges and orders Howl’s shampoo bottles, to his dismay.

Howl usually depends on his inside sense of figuring out and random “aha” moments for data, as robust Introverted Instinct (Ni) customers do. Howl one way or the other “is aware of” that Sophie has a letter in her pocket from the Witch of the Waste. Sophie is stunned when he’s appropriate as she had no thought the letter was there. Whereas chatting with Sophie at one other level, Howl says out of the blue, “The Witch of the Waste is looking for my fortress.” And he’s appropriate. Howl has a “sudden” realization that Sophie may go to the fortress disguised as his mom in order that he doesn’t need to face Madame Suliman who he’s “afraid of,” though Howl doesn’t clue Sophie in on the truth that he may even arrive to the palace disguised as properly. Viewers don’t, in reality, see any brainstorming—as one would anticipate from an Extroverted Instinct (Ne) consumer—from Howl in any respect. All of Howl’s concepts appear to come back from inside, from out of nowhere. This is able to make him an Intuitive-Judging persona kind relatively than an Intuitive-Perceiving persona kind.

Howl has Sophie fly the aircraft to get away from Madame Suliman and upon return to the shifting fortress he states, “I knew she would make an amazing pilot.” Howl can also be fairly adept at telling from a mere look whether or not or not somebody is beneath a spell. He “knew” Sophie was beneath a spell, simply as he “knew” Turnip Head (Prince Justin) was. Whereas Prince Justin’s curse was apparent—there aren’t many pogo-stick scarecrows hopping round—Sophie’s was not. She may have been any aged lady off the overwhelmed path, and but Howl knew she had a curse on her. Howl additionally does a little bit of future-prospecting as when he reveals Sophie his “secret backyard” stuffed with flowers. “I’m setting you up as a way to have a cushty life,” he says and tells her she may open up a flower store. “I’m certain you’d be good at it.” Howl appears to have identified Sophie wanted to acknowledge the world, whether or not or not he died within the conflict, as a result of she had visited him in his youth. Howl trusted the intuitive time loop.

Howl is commonly tempted by bodily magnificence and clearly overestimates his personal bodily talents to the detriment of his personal well being, which may be attributed to decrease ranges of Extroverted Sensing (Se). Howl’s love of magnificence is well-known. The store women gossip that Howl “tears lady’s hearts out” however “he solely preys on fairly women.” Howl at one level chides to Sophie, “You’re carrying THAT hat, after all of the magic I used to make your costume fairly?” Howl appears involved with aesthetic, however tends to privilege it an excessive amount of initially. When Sophie asks what occurred between Howl and the Witch of the Waste, Howl states “She was as soon as fairly lovely, so I attempted to pursue her. Then I spotted she wasn’t, so I ran away.” Howl clearly values externals, which, if adopted too far, can lead him to ignore its inner properties. Howl’s bodily overexertion is seen time and time once more when Howl returns from flight bleeding and totally exhausted. Even Calcifer, a relatively blunt character that doesn’t present a lot compassion, tells Howl, “You okay? You odor horrible.” Sophie is very often involved with the extent of exertion Howl makes use of and its after impacts that go away Howl sprawled within the tub, exhausted. He appears to have an entire lack of sense for his personal inside physique consciousness, to the purpose of blindness. This is quite common with ENFJ and ENTJ persona sorts.

Whereas Howl is anxious about exerting pressure and manipulating the surroundings to his will, he has little, if any consciousness of family maintenance and upkeep, as one would anticipate from an Introverted Sensing (SJ) kind. When Howl asks Sophie who employed her, Sophie claims Calcifer did “as a result of he’s disgusted by how soiled it’s in right here.” Howl merely says “Hmm,” seemingly unaware of the miles of cobwebs in his dwelling. At one other level, after Sophie rams the aircraft into the wall of the shifting fortress she states, “If I simply grasp somewhat curtain right here [over the hole in the brick wall], Howl received’t discover.” She’s appropriate in that he most likely received’t discover as he’s utterly oblivious to how his surroundings “ought to” be. Howl additionally doesn’t appear to care about whether or not or not Sophie cleans. He by no means sought out a maid as he didn’t suppose his fortress was an issue, as-is.

Logic is the world sorely missing from Howl’s demeanor, which in his case appears to be a low use of Introverted Pondering (Ti). Whereas Howl is totally blind to sensory upkeep, he can exert himself on the surroundings with fairly a little bit of power along with his Se. An excessive amount of power, in reality. Nevertheless, he appears to don’t have any conception of logical order or rationality, which appears to set him aside from Madame Suliman most. Howl’s lowest level within the movie isn’t when he’s overwhelmed to shreds in conflict. His private breakdown happens when Sophie rearranges bottles within the rest room by imposing logical order and results in Howl utilizing the unsuitable bottle. His hair turns from blond to orange. “I particularly ordered you to not get carried away,” Howl virtually yells, “now I’m repulsive.” Howl cries and continues, “I can’t dwell like this.” Sophie tries to reassure him that his hair isn’t so dangerous, however Howl ignores her, stating, “I see no level in dwelling if I can’t be lovely.” Shadows pour into the room and shake the home. Whether or not which means to or not, Howl calls within the spirits of darkness via his grief at his modified hair colour. Markl notes that the one time Howl did this earlier than was when a woman dumped him. Howl appears to expertise an entire lack of worth if he isn’t likable or lovely to the individuals round him. It appears Howl can get away with (and has) ignoring sensory upkeep in his dwelling and well being as a result of an absence of each hasn’t harm his functioning as it’d an ENxP, however when he’s met with a standardized sense of order and responsibility, Howl’s sense of self breaks down. Howl has no inner system of rules to base his actions upon. He tends to utilize his charming personability and magic potential to get his wants met, however he doesn’t have a steady framework or guidelines on which to construct up the right way to dwell. When the one rule he appears to have—so as to be favored, one have to be lovely, so as to be priceless, one have to be favored— is examined, he utterly breaks down. Howl in any other case disregards most guidelines, which in the end hang-out him. Howl appears to have spent a very good portion of his days operating from the duties he signed up for when he labored with Madame Suliman and purchased his talent in magic. Howl appears to suppose the principles don’t apply to him in any strict sense and claims the standing of “coward” when he chooses to not adhere to legalities. Howl claims it’s Sophie’s presence which provides him the power to face all the things he must relatively than his personal sense of a regular code.

Sophie Hatter (ESTJ)

Sophie Hatter ESTJ

Sophie is never involved about mincing phrases and states her thoughts with a agency assurance typically, which is commonly appear with robust Extroverted Pondering (Te). When the Witch of the Waste comes into the store after hours and begins choosing on Sophie, Sophie retains her cool and firmly tells the witch the store is closed. Fairly a daring transfer for somebody who is aware of that the witch isn’t a “good” particular person and likes to drag methods on individuals.

Sophie is initially upset by the Witch of the Waste’s spell that transforms Sophie into an aged lady, however she shortly assimilates to the fact of the scenario and manages to normalize her new state in life. She tells herself, “I’ve acquired to remain calm,” and works together with her new, older physique as a result of the spell is in the end out of her management.

Sophie doesn’t wallow over her lack of youth, which appears to feed into her annoyance at Howl when he complains, “I can’t dwell this fashion” when his hair has merely shifted colour. Sophie goes as far as to say, “He’s positive, he’s simply throwing a tantrum,” when Howl feels defeated due to his hair. Sophie is supremely sensible and environment friendly. She even manages to discover a optimistic end result of turning into outdated: “Your garments lastly go well with you,” she says to herself.

On her journey into the countryside, Sophie finds a stick she will be able to use for a cane, however when she pulls on it, she discovers Turnip Head. Regardless of this revelation that the stick is definitely a scarecrow determine, Sophie’s pragmatic nature is revealed right here as she makes use of no matter is round her to achieve her ends in an efficient method. Howl and Sophie are eons aside in how they strategy each individuals and the world. In contrast to excessive Extroverted Feeling (Fe) customers who handle the social realm with ease and heat, Sophie does neither. Upon entry into the shifting fortress, Sophie says, “What a dump. Once I suppose fortress, this isn’t what I image.” This, and a number of other different cases, get at how a lot Sophie lacks Extraverted Feeling.

Carl Jung states within the Extroverted Feeling part of Psychological Sorts, “A sense judgment is an act of adjustment…A portray, for example, known as “lovely” as a result of a portray hung in a drawing room and bearing a widely known signature is mostly assumed to be lovely, or as a result of to name it “hideous” would presumably offend the household of its lucky possessor, or as a result of the customer desires to create a nice feeling ambiance.” Sophie, given the identical alternative of getting into one’s dwelling as Carl Jung describes, utterly denounces what she sees. “What a dump,” are her very phrases. Sophie may care much less what individuals really feel about her phrases, to the extent it’s each baffling and humorous as a result of what she declares is so sudden. So in opposition to how one “ought to” converse as a visitor. Sophie doesn’t “regulate” herself for anybody. When Sophie begins to cook dinner breakfast, Calicfer (who’s the hearth/food-heating supply of the house) says he’s not taking any order from her. Regardless of his refusal, Sophie pressures him to anyway, threatening that she is going to inform Howl about their deal (for Calcifer and Sophie to interrupt one another’s curses) or to place water on Calcifer if he doesn’t work for her. Sophie silences Calcifer’s additional arguments with the pan she makes use of to cook dinner on high of him.

Sophie makes use of weighted techniques to get her manner, not heat and the manipulation of social ease as Howl does. Outcomes and outcomes matter to Sophie. Everybody must eat and Calcifer is going to assist in that matter, no questions on it. When Sophie goes to see Madame Suliman, and Heen (the canine) approaches her, Sophie assumes it’s Howl, stating, “Howl, you disguised your self as an outdated canine? You couldn’t consider one thing extra helpful?” Sophie’s prioritization of usefulness and use of individuals comes out time and time once more. She’s really the primary to catch that Madame Suliman is making an attempt to steal the powers of witches and wizards far earlier than anybody else does as Sophie has a excessive consciousness of getting issues out of individuals. Sophie additionally spends nearly all of the movie downside fixing.

Sophie’s desire for Introverted Sensing (Si) comes into play typically. At first of the movie, the opposite women on the store ask Sophie to come back out with them, however Sophie tells them she desires to complete the job she’s engaged on. The completion of tasks follows Sophie’s each motion. She doesn’t begin one thing she can’t end. Sophie seems set in her routines to the purpose most individuals in her realm will not be stunned when she refuses to exit into the world with them for enjoyable as a result of she has work to do. Previous to her journey into the countryside, Sophie preps for it by packing a snack of bread and cheese for her lengthy journey. Sophie is aware of she will probably be hungry on the street and may already anticipate what her physique will want earlier than leaving to maintain it balanced—a stark distinction from Howl who couldn’t let you know what his physique wanted if you happen to gave him a thousand {dollars}. Sophie’s persona may simply be summarized as “clear all the things, all over the place, dutifully and aggressively.” Sophie is a tireless work horse who units about “fixing” no matter mess she finds herself in, so as to set up homeostasis for the surroundings. Sophie may be very expert and has an eye fixed for upkeep.

Sophie has a bittersweet relationship with Extroverted Instinct (Ne). All through Howl’s Shifting Fort, poor Sophie is thrown into a number of sudden conditions that go away her reeling till she grabs a foothold together with her effectiveness. Sophie is relatively uncomfortable when the Troopers at the start of the movie hit on her, till Howl saves her from the boys and throws her into one other sudden scenario: flying. Sophie is afraid, however calms when Howl tells her what to do. Howl’s confidence in his personal magic talents slowly offers Sophie confidence in him as properly. Sophie, like everybody else within the movie, is very conscious of Howl’s desire for lovely girls. This fuels Sophie’s insecurity about her personal desirability and feedback a number of occasions all through the movie how she is “protected” from Howl as a result of she isn’t what he’s in search of. Howl in the end tells Sophie she is lovely, however she doesn’t imagine him. Sophie doesn’t see her personal potential as an individual past what she’s come to know, not to mention her robust qualities that may make her an amazing companion. Sophie may “weave a narrative” (lie) pretty shortly. When Howl asks Sophie why she’s within the shifting fortress, she claims Calcifer employed her. When the Witch of the Waste asks Sophie why she’s on the fortress, Sophie says, “I’m right here on the palace to search for different jobs as a result of I’m sick of working for Howl.” One other lie, nevertheless it does the job properly sufficient to get by.

Whereas Sophie is fast to talk her thoughts, her feelings are hardly ever expressed—a standard prevalence for ESTJs—till the top of the movie when all the things is falling aside. Sophie’s emotional realm seems relatively non-public and but deep. Lettie Hatter (Sophie’s sister) tells Sophie, “Do you actually wish to spend the remainder of your life in that hat store?” Sophie in return states, “The store was so vital to father and I’m the eldest, I don’t thoughts.” Lettie then reminds Sophie to “do one thing for your self for as soon as.”

Sophie is clearly dutiful and cares about retaining true to her bonds, however doesn’t convey how a lot these bonds really imply to her. When Sophie is remodeled into an outdated lady by the spell, she doesn’t ask her mom Fanny Hatter to come back in and assist her. Sophie desires to take care of the feelings and her estrangement from her typical reflection herself. That is the everyday manner for an ESTJ to handle feelings. Sophie doesn’t search exterior consolation and emotional validation from others in any sense. A person at one level provides to assist Sophie down the steps. Sophie says, “I’ll be positive, however thanks for providing…” and when he can now not hear her she says, “that was actually sort.”

Sophie acknowledges the efforts of others, however doesn’t at all times specific what these efforts imply to her. Sophie will, at occasions, give character compliments (with some rational criticisms connected), as she does right here with reference to Howl, “He could also be egocentric and cowardly, and typically he’s onerous to know, his intentions are good. He simply desires to be free,” however her private emotions will not be usually spoken except harshly pressed. Sophie’s lowest factors within the movie needed to do together with her relationship to Howl. Why? Most likely as a result of she cherished him, which she wasn’t totally conscious of till the Witch of the Waste acknowledged it. The viewer can see Sophie’s aged-self develop into younger once more every time she shares a mushy second with Howl, however Sophie herself can’t see it. That visible sense appears to reflect Sophie’s personal strategy to her care and consideration: Sophie reveals up for the individuals in her life dutifully however doesn’t understand that it’s love and care that’s motivating her must preserve all the things operating.
