Do you remember when Ambiverts became “a thing” on social media? People latched onto this “new” descriptor (which has actually been around since 1927), grateful to know that they didn’t have to decide whether they were introverted or extraverted. They felt like both, so they could be both.

Bubbly and ambitious, with a hint of anxiety, Mindy Kaling is the kind of woman with whom we wouldn’t mind becoming best friends (translation: she is in fact our dream BFF). She is hilarious. She keeps it real. And she’s written some of the most incredible comedies over the past decade, refusing to be stereotyped and relegated to the sidelines as a “sidekick” character.
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.
Type 7 is the enthusiastic, adventure-seeker of the Enneagram with a habit of attention that tilts to the bright side. While friends and family might describe Type 7s as happy-go-lucky and relentlessly positive, they don’t often see the anxiety that’s running just below the surface. But the dark cloud of anxiety is there, and if Type 7s seem to have an almost supernatural amount of energy, it is because this drive to be on-the-go is a subconscious strategy to keep them out of anxiety’s reach.

Give an ENFP a few minutes of your time and you’ll walk away with several to choose from – and they’ll probably have kept you laughing through the process.
Frida Kahlo was an artist known for her self-portraits. She is remembered as one of the greatest Mexican artists of all time and one of the most significant artists of the 20th century. Most of her art symbolized the pain and passion built through a lifetime of suffering. As a young girl, she suffered a near-fatal spine injury that became a major theme in her art. Her posthumous popularity has made Kahlo an icon for feminists, Chicanos and the LGBTQ community.
