Student. Lover of many things, including period drama. I occasionally re-blog content that is loosely related to period drama or history, such as art, dresses, or historical-modern day humor. For the most part it relates or at least mixes it up a little. Feel free to look around or leave a comment. Welcome to Period Dramarama.
Fi: Rose makes her decisions on how she feels about something, not external influences. Her personal standards matter more to her than ascribing to the belief systems of others. She is very passionate, feels quite deeply, and once encouraged by Jack, lets her heart determine her course through life.
Ne: She “trusts” her emotions and her larger intuition to guide her, even though it “doesn’t make any sense.” Rose simply knows that Jack is innocent, even when the evidence encourages her to believe otherwise. She longs to escape tradition and experience greater possibilities in life. Rose feels stifled in rigidity; she is drawn to and embraces the change she sees happening in the world around her.
Si: Her memories are precious to her, and she holds onto them her entire life. The three days she spent on the most luxurious ship in the world, with a boy she lost that dark night, is her final thought in the hour of her death. Sentimentality and lost love return her to Titanic.
Te: She struggles to use rationality, but does live a long and successful life, which proves she has some organizational skills and a lot of follow-through.
In the Victorian era, hand-fans were used not only to cool oneself but also as a secret way to communicate the language of love. For example, by running one’s fingers through the fan’s ribs, one is trying to say, "I want to talk to you." The enigmatic language of the fan was widely used by both men and women.
