Cersei Lannister

Explain Dominant Color Explain Auxiliary Color

The Yellow in this spiritual portrait represents Cersei's dominant trait, pragmatism realism realistic outlook openness to experiences. In Introverts, the dominant trait is directed inwardly, and spiritual portraits use a long horizontal line to represent this. She demonstrates this trait in her practical and pragmatic choice to confess her sins rather than endure continued confinement by the Faith Militant.

The Green in this spiritual portrait represents Cersei's auxiliary trait, rationality 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. She demonstrates this trait in the cold, ruthless manner in which she deals with everyone, except possibly her children.

Queen of the Andals and the First Men

She is a very attractive woman, but unless you are one of her children, it is difficult to like Queen Cersei Lannister.

Cersei Lannister:
The Story

She is a very attractive woman, but unless you are one of her children, it is difficult to like Queen Cersei Lannister.

As her brother Tyrion so aptly puts it:

You love your children. That is your one redeeming quality — that, and your cheekbones.
- Tyrion Lannister

On one of the commentary tracks the actress behind the role, Lena Headey, makes it clear that she does not like the character she plays. At one point she calls herself and Jaime the shits. Her commentaries are some of my favorites!

In one scene, even her fiance, Ser Loras Tyrell, has trouble making small talk:

Ser Loras: My father once told me....
Cersei Lannister: Nobody cares what your father once told you.

Her personality and spiritual portrait are somewhat similar to Jaime Lannister's, which makes sense because they are twins and very close.

Like Jaime in season 3 and Jon Snow's character in season 5, Cersei 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.
