Summer is approaching and after the last year and a half, a big holiday reset is probably just what we all need. “Summer vacation” might make you assume we’re talking about a beach-focused trip, but we know that lying on a sunbed overlooking sparkling blue water isn’t everyone’s cup of tea.
Narcissism is a word we’re hearing more and more, with some psychologists describing it as the predominant mental issue of our time. Its toxic effects are far-reaching and long lasting, and you would do well to steer clear of all forms of narcissism.
But too often, you don’t have the knowledge you need to protect yourself from these happiness vampires and before you know it, you’ve innocently opened the door and let a narcissist in.
When you’re in an uncertain or less-than-ideal situation, how do you react? Do you become frustrated and defensive or withdrawn and isolated? Maybe you deny your emotions altogether and make excuses for your behavior. Or, perhaps you’re not quite sure of your reaction, which you wouldn’t be alone with—most of these defense mechanisms live deep within our subconscious.
The Enneagram Type 6 is called the Loyalist and the Skeptic and if you have this habit of attention, your mind is gifted at spotting danger and identifying problems before they materialize. You see the fissures before they become cracks, and with your eye for potential pitfalls, you can help make the world a safer place. When you function in a balanced way, you are loyal, committed, hard-working, generous, cooperative, and idealistic in your pursuit of creating a safer and more secure world.
With the weather warming up, flowers beginning to bloom and the winter blues starting to melt away, Spring is a period of rejuvenation.

According to her written work and observed traits, Mindy Kaling is most likely an Enneagram Type Six and an ENTJ in Myers’ and Briggs’ framework. Here is more about her multifaceted personality.
We have a wide spectrum of options when it comes working out at home, but people are different and not every exercise regimen is going to work for every individual.

As an actress and filmmaker, Kristen Stewart is one of the most successful women in Hollywood. She had her first acting role at age 12 in the film Panic Room and rose to fame as a teenager starring as Bella Swan in the Twilight Saga.
But the actress isn’t one to rub it in or brag about her fame and fortune. Kristen is intensely private, thoughtful, and methodological. She cares more about the quality of her work than how much attention she gets or how many fans she has.
Earlier this month, HBO released a documentary that promised to reveal the “dark side of personality tests.” Starring a mix of chattering Youtube personalities, corporate talking heads, and various activists with a bone to pick with the psychometrics industry, Persona devoted a mere hour and a half to covering essentially every circumstance in which a person might find themselves answering a question about their thoughts or behavior—and aimed to leave the viewer with a deep sense of foreboding about ever doing so again.
