  1. Although I have not watched all episodes in Season 2, I voted Standard from the information I had.

    1. Oh yeah, she’s a standard but also a DEMB (strand of selfishness. She knew Perry was married when she went to his room with him it was said)

  2. Standard empath. Caring of others and being traumatized by an aggressive (first time) one night stand. But she could be a narc at the end of the season.

  3. I voted normal with empathic traits. She has a strong sense of right or wrong and is protective of her child as any normal Mom would be. She wasn’t going to help Madeline in S1 E1 when she fell not until her son asked her to, Ziggy is the Empath and Jane is Normal.

  4. to me she is normal with empatic traits , do not see her as an empath as it was her son who said that Madalene needs help when she she sprained her ankle in first episode, she is surely traumatized by what happened to her she wants justice and to find the one who raped her but as she said to Perry’s mum she would have killed him if she could.She clearly wanted a revange not save someone’s life or in selfdefence.

  5. Jane: I think Jane is normal with a narcissistic trait or dirty empathetic trait for vengeance (I do not consider a desire for vengeance to be erroneous nor narcissistic) but, it can be narcissistic or dirty empathic if one attempts to enact justice by breaking the law in a premeditated somewhat NOW event, with ideas of dealing with the consequences and collateral damage and fallout, later. Magical Thinking, or just dumb? And perhaps her emotional thinking reached the tipping point and is in control of her logical thinking unawares to her, and this runaway emotional thinking could be offered as another possible explanation, why she seeks to murder her one night stand, I guess. Especially since, she is forgetting that she does have a son that she loves, and he would also have to suffer the consequences of her actions if she murdered this man, premeditated in cold blood, yes? Normals and Empaths suffer wrong more than they avenge wrong. I believe that if she had not suffered from her one night stand, Jane just wanted to go through life with her head down, as calmly as possible. I consider Jane to be normal with a narcissistic streak or empathetic dirty streak for criminal vengeance. Also, I do not consider Jane to be all that bright. I assess jane to be sort of a Dirty Normal Rapist Killer. I voted Normal on the poll.

  6. This one was a slam dunk …contagion! Jane senses deeply about others situations. Its on a spiritual level and taps into a 6th sense. She can see thru a different lense that typical empaths dont. Much like bonnie she can sense turmoil before its actually seen. Like the atmosphere before a storm. Was she always this way or did the trauma of being raped by a stranger put her in an out of body state where she can see things differently. I feel we all have the capacity to tap into this area of sensing but are either blocked from it or have never been triggered into using this area of our brain. So much is unknown about why some can and some cant or dont. My feeling is a traumatic experience can trigger this and cause a person to have a heightened awareness of whats going on around them and this includes others they come across.
    I felt like it was implied that she sensed things about celestes marriage. The way she looked at celeste when she would be talking to her. It was almost like on a very deep level she sensed the abuse celeste was enduring and from the very same man she herself had been raped by. I definitely see jane as a contagion and i think she became that way or this part of her personality came to the forefront as a result of the trauma of the rape.

  7. I vote that she is a traumatized Normal. She has good boundaries. She behaves like an empath sometimes. A loving mother. Protective of her friends with a strong backbone.

  8. I voted Contagion mixed with Super Empath. She seems very intuitive and has the need to be in nature and around animals. She lets herself go and becomes immersed in music and running. She loves unconditionally and takes no shit.

    1. Me too, WokeAF. She seems to be an empath with PTSD. I cannot tell which school and cadre yet.

  9. Super Empath.
    She has a gun and is not afraid to use it to protect her and Ziggy.
    She takes no shit and she stands for what she believes in.
    She’s had trauma – she deals with it by throwing all her energy and love into Ziggy – if Bonnie had not pushed Perry down the stairs – after the initial shock – she would have!
    She fights for her friends – confronting Mary furiously.

    There is a ball of fury in there, if pushed, or taken advantage of she will explode and have the fury of a Narc.

    All of this in defence, she doesn’t go looking for trouble, or try to manipulate others but will take revenge if needed.

    I like her a lot, she’s raised a beautiful boy, Ziggy is just adorable and I love their bond. That alone – after the way he was conceived shows strength – she adores that little boy and doesn’t blame him what so ever – always trying to protect him from the truth. She’s raising another little super empath.

  10. Standard. Although she does have some boundaries and does stick up for Celeste when she didn’t need to e.g.saying no to the paternity test and then banging on MLs door but she did head off pretty quickly. She also punched Renata in the face which maybe does strengthen the SE traits a little, but I don’t get the feeling she could go completely supernova. I feel she would perhaps give in a bit too easily.

    I think she is largely standard with a bit of SE and a bit of contagion and a bit CD through her relationship with her son. Same with cadres, a bit of everything. Nothing really stands out terribly, she has sufficient N traits to protect herself , her son and friends.

    I’ll be interested to find out. She is incredibly attractive. I do love her very natural/ innocent look.
