You know, it makes me sad to say this because the Phantom of the Opera is my absolute favourite musical ever; I was so obsessed and crazy about it as a tween/teenager (for 5 straight years I listened to the CD to the whole musical and a few years later when I finally got to watch it live I could sing along to everything because I knew it all by heart), but now that I'm looking at the story as an older person(of both the book and the musical) i see it very differently...and not in a good way.
Christine is one very credulous girl and it never seems to occur to her how her dead father could simply exist and talk to her in a form of a ghost. She's extremely naive and manipulable, but that can be due to her being very young and desperate for a source of security, stability, love and adult guidance. The Phantom recognized this need in her and wasted no time grabbing that opportunity and manipulating the situation for his own advantage. These people are put in extraordinary circumstances, so it's really hard to just pinpoint and say, "they do this under this situation, which shows this cognitive function, therefore they're this XXXX type." I think where I'm trying to go with this is that there are a lot more variables than CF or type; ten plus years ago when I was still a tween obsessing over this story, I would get all dreamy and put myself in the place of Christine and fantasize about what it's like to be her and I would feel so bad for the Phantom that I would probably choose him over Raoul, but now that I'm an adult I can see what a right hot mess this situation is and I wouldn't touch it with a ten metre pole, but I've always been the same MBTI type.
