Playing With / Freudian Trio

Basic Trope: A trio consists of an emotional and instinctual character, an impassionately logical character, and a third, balanced character who keeps the two conflicting ideals in check.
  • Straight: The emotional and instinctual Alice, the coldly logical Bob, and the balanced Charlie work together as a team.
  • Exaggerated:
  • Downplayed: Alice has a slight tendency to follow her heart and Bob his head.
  • Justified: ???
  • Inverted: ???
  • Subverted: Alice, Bob and Charlie appear to constitute a Freudian Trio, but Alice has some rational Hidden Depths, and Bob some emotional ones, destroying the model...
  • Double Subverted: ...although it turns out that the Freudian Trio model does apply anyway, just played less straight that usual.
  • Parodied: ???
  • Zig Zagged: ???
  • Averted: Alice, Bob and Charlie have no Freudian Trio tendencies.
  • Enforced: ???
  • Lampshaded: ???
  • Invoked: ???
  • Exploited: ???
  • Defied: ???
  • Discussed: ???
  • Conversed: ???
