Ariana Martinez- WarrenMs. FoleyEnglish 2 period 513 December 2017Personalities of a Deserted Island”I have a lot of different traits to my personality, depending on who I’m around, and what the dynamic in the situation is.” -Mary Elizabeth Winstead. Throughout the book The Lord of the Flies by William Golding, the characters express many different personality traits but mainly retain the dominant ones. Piggy, Ralph, and Jack all have very strong and disparate personality traits. Throughout the story Piggy is a diligent helper that is dedicated to his responsibilities, Ralph is a strategic leader that conceptualizes new solutions, and Jack is a power hungry, rule-abiding leader. Throughout the story, Piggy showed many examples of being an ESFJ. ESFJs generally are dedicated helpers. “‘Where’s everybody?’… ‘That’s where they’ve gone. Jack’s party” (Golding 148). Piggy stuck by Ralph through the hardest of times even throughout their period of starvation. ESFJs is primarily eager to please and provide. “…he snatches back his hands and started to cry. ‘Let him have the conch!’ shouted Piggy” (Golding 35). During the children’s meeting to be authorized to speak, the boys have to hold a conch. ESFJs value loyalty and tradition. ‘”…You call an assembly, Ralph, we got to decide what to do.’ ‘An assembly for only us?'” (Golding 169). While Ralph and Piggy are the remaining ones in their group, Piggy still suggests a meeting.Until the end of the story, Ralph expresses the personality trait ENTJ. ENTJs are strategic leaders. “And another thing. We can’t have everybody talking at once. We’ll have to have ‘Hands up’ like at school” (Golding 33). While the children are speaking over each other, Ralph ponders of a solution. ENTJs are mainly rational. “…If a ship comes near the island they may not notice. So we must make smoke on top of the mountain. We must make a fire” (Golding 38). During the boys meet, Ralph analyzes a strategy to be rescued. Another trait expressed by ENTJs is appreciating discovering. ” … we’ve got to decide if this is an island … three of us will go on an expedition and find out. I’ll go…” (Golding 25). Ralph contemplated and volunteered to go on the expedition. All through the story, Jack demonstrates the personality trait ESTJ. ESTJs generally are rule-abiding. “Who’s going to join my tribe” (Golding 150). Jack grants the others with a sizable meal to win them over. ESTJs are superb organizers. “Kill the beast! Cut his throat! Spill his blood!” (Golding 152). Jack organizes his group by offering protection from the beast and creating a chant to unify them and feel safer. Additionally, ESTJs want to bring structure to their surroundings. “You haven’t got it with you” (Golding 150). Jack attempts to become chief after realizing Ralph is not fit to be.The personality traits that the characters Piggy, Ralph, and Jack express are very disparate although they all start with being an extrovert. Piggy and Jack both start with ES which is being extroverted and going off of senses. While Ralph is also extroverted but goes off intuition in a situation. The tertiary letter for both Ralph and Jack is T which is thinking whereas Piggy is F which is feeling. The finishing number is J for Piggy, Ralph, and Jack which is judging contrary to perceiving. Even though Piggy, Ralph, and Jack all have very distinguished personalities throughout the book their main characteristics are relatively similar.
