Dominant Introverted Thinking [Ti]: Ted’s greatest frustration with Robin is how closed off she is emotionally. She’s a rational person and dislikes when her relationships get too serious. Robin is extremely skeptical and can come up with a logical explanation for everything. She utilizes her Ti in her sense of humor, which is sarcastic and tends to point out other people’s errors in logic and inconsistency. Robin is brutally honest and can deliver harsh truths, though she usually does so in humorous ways.
Auxiliary Extroverted Sensing [Se]: Robin is a doer. She gets a thrill out of engaging with the physical world. She loves guns, sports, and traveling. Robin has mastered the art of living in the moment. She doesn’t get hung up on the past, or get worked up thinking about the future. Robin is good at seizing opportunities as they present themselves. The idea of new experiences excites her and she doesn’t hesitate to dive into the unknown.
Tertiary Introverted Intuition [Ni]: Robin has a clear picture of what she wants her life to be. She wants to be a reporter and visit new places. Children are not part of her plan. Sometimes, she gets hunches about what’s really going on in a situation and these hunches often prove to be valid. Robin will put up with undesirable circumstances (like anchoring the news at 4 in the morning), because she knows it’s a step towards advancing her career and opening herself up to new opportunities.
Inferior Extroverted Feeling [Fe]: “I really don’t like feelings.” This quote just about sums Robin up. Sometimes, when people are kind and considerate to her, she assumes the worst, like when Barney became more sweet and thoughtful with her, and she instantly came to the conclusion that he must be cheating on her. She doesn’t typically act on her feelings and is good at counseling her friends when they’re about to make foolish decisions based solely on their emotions. Robin’s hard exterior makes it difficult for her to let people in. Because Robin refuses to be emotional, when she finally does acknowledge her feelings, she has been known to do so in the form of a major meltdown.
Enneagram: 7w8 Sp/Sx
Robin: The future is scary, but you can’t just run back to the past because it’s familiar. Yes, it’s tempting, but it’s a mistake.
Robin Scherbatsky: Okay but, if relationships are like a freeway, then saying “mm hmm hmm” is like, getting into the carpool lane. And, I don’t want to take an exit but at the same time I’m not ready to get into the carpool lane. Because what’s in the carpool lane? Oh, it’s a big diamond!
Robin Scherbatsky: I can’t believe I’m talking to a therapist. Well, ususally I’m not the touchy-feely, talk-about-your-emotions type. But with this… I just had to be a big enough person to admit that I need help. Huh. I guess this is what growing up feels like.
Kevin: This is *court*-mandated therapy. You assaulted a woman.
Robin Scherbatsky: There are plenty of legitimate reasons to get in a fight. It might not be pretty, but in certain situations you gotta do what you gotta do.
Ted Mosby: Right, I forgot, she thinks fighting is sexy.
Robin Scherbatsky: So kids, I settled in for Christmas alone. I appreciated that Ted wanted to cheer me up, but honestly, it wasn’t necessary. So I can’t have kids. Big deal, this way, there’s no one to hold me back in life, no one to keep me from traveling when I wanna travel, no one getting in the way of my career. If you wanna know the truth of it, I’m glad you guys aren’t real. Real glad.
Robin Scherbatsky: A marriage has to be built on honesty and trust and all of that Lily-and-Marshall crap.
Robin Scherbatsky: Dear Marshall: I do not like that stupid hat. I want to beat it with a bat. Or maybe stab it with a fork. It makes you look like such a dork.
Robin Scherbatsky: Dear Ted: It’s “encyclopedia”, not “encyclopaedia”. You always pronounce things in the most pretentious way possible, and it makes you sound douchy, and not “douchay”.
Robin Scherbatsky: What would be the point in telling you that I want to live in Argentina? You don’t want to live there.
Ted Mosby: I could want to live in Argentina.
Robin Scherbatsky: No, you couldn’t. I mean, you life is here and your career. I’m a journalist, my career could take me anywhere, and I hope it does.
Robin Scherbatsky: Hey look, as the only one here packin a vag I got a natural instinct for nurturing and crap like that plus I could teach him how to bow hunt!
Robin Scherbatsky:Sometimes in life you have to be assertive and stand up for yourself.
Robin Scherbatsky: [What she would tell Marvin if Marshall and Lily died] Alright, kid. Here’s the deal with the deal: Your Mom and Dad are done, ski bellyflopped off a subway platform. Mom; busted open like a Piñata. What was left of your Dad hung around for a few days. Anyway, plugs pulled, organs donated, long story short, I’m your new mummy now.
