MBTI Type: ENTP
Robin is something of a big picture thinker; she tells Steve she can’t risk asking people out the way he can, since “if the wrong girl says no, I will become a social pariah.” She really thrives when invited to solve a puzzle or figure something out, because that allows her to think outside the box and get ideas on the fly. In a moment of impulsivity with Nancy at the asylum, she quickly comes up with a long-winded lie about her past being reinforced by a childhood interaction, and how she swore to herself she would meet this person one day and it would be the fulfillment of a dream to now do so, and solve the question of WHY did he do this? (She also hints that the doctor in charge is a sexist for not allowing them to speak to his patient.) She admits to being uncoordinated and a nerd. Robin understands four separate languages and assumes because of that she can crack the Russian code, which she does within twenty-four hours by approaching it systematically and attempting to understand its components. She frequently gets into arguments with Steve over his “irrational” approaches. Dustin admires her, because she is “brilliant,” and speaks a similar “language” to his own – they theorize together and test their theories through practical application. She is able to crack the code by looking around the mall and identifying the markers used in the code words. She figures out they can get into the secret room through the air vent, then runs off to the clerk’s office for blueprints. Robin notices Erica is constantly hanging around, and about the right size to squeeze through the ducts, so recruits her with an exchange of ice cream for assistance. When tied up, she notices surgical scissors in a dishpan in the corner, and gets Steve to help her “hop” their chairs toward it. She physically displays her contempt for the Russians by spitting in their face. She senses there is more going on in the code than is first apparent. She instinctively knows it means something important, then becomes fixated on following the clues to the very end. When bored, Robin criticizes Steve at work and nitpicks his flirting techniques, writing out and keeping score on the “You Suck” side of her whiteboard. Under Russian capture, she mocks, ridicules, and defies the authorities, in an attempt to bluff them, but also opens up emotionally and confides in Steve her history of unrequited crushes. Her low Fe takes comfort in both being there for him, and pushing him around a bit for her own amusement. In season four, she often vents about her feelings and says whatever she is thinking, even if that’s to complain about wearing uncomfortable clothes. She gets Steve a job by pointing out to the nerd in charge that he is a “total chick magnet, and we’ll get way more ladies in here with him working here.” Robin shows very little Si; she isn’t detailed, but she is somewhat aware of the world in which she operates and its rules, so she knows she can’t risk coming “out” without being exposed and shunned.
Enneagram: 7w6 so/sp
Robin has an adventurous spirit and a desire to avoid being bored; she hates being stuck behind an ice cream counter and leaps at the chance to have an adventure and do something more interesting, even if it’s just cracking a mysterious code. When trapped by the enemy, she still continues to make jokes and have a good time, even though she’s scared. She is confident and able to talk anyone into anything. She doesn’t care for people being upset with her, and turns “the kids” over to Steven when she has to deny them any more “free samples.” She can be something of a worrywart, concerned with her safety and that of her friends, but is also willing to throw herself through a rift into the Upside-Down to save them. She doesn’t want to risk coming out in case it gains her public hatred and disapproval, and is also highly responsible at work.
