The Yellow in this spiritual portrait represents Jon's dominant trait, his realistic outlook. In Introverts, the dominant trait is directed inwardly, and spiritual portraits use a long horizontal line to represent this. He demonstrates this trait in his keen fighting ability.
The Green in this spiritual portrait represents Jon's auxiliary trait, his cool-headedness. In Introverts, the auxiliary trait is directed outwardly, and spiritual portraits use a vertical line to represent this, because it is more evident than the dominant function.

Jon Snow: It's where she belonged.
Ser Davos: Some of the Night's Watch feel you have too too much affection for the wildings.
Jon Snow: The were born on the wrong side of the wall. That doesn't make them monsters.
Like Jaime Lannister's character in season 3, Jon Snow experiences some serious trauma in season 5. Depending on how his character develops, I may create another personality profile and spiritual portrait based on the later seasons.
