Episode 5: Typing the Characters from the Mummy (1999)

The Mummy (1999 film) - Wikipedia

Exotic setting. Lost treasures. Romance. Reanimated corpses. The Mummy has it all! Lance and Kate both adore this swashbuckling adventure, staring Brendan Fraser and Rachel Weisz, and they had lots of fun typing the main characters.

Jonathan is a smart (but somewhat lazy) Egyptologist, whose “borrows” an artifact from a criminal. It just so happens that artifact is the key to finding an ancient lost city full of treasure. Is this fun-loving screwball a type 7?

Evie is dedicated to her studies, but struggles in everything else. She emerges as a heroine with tremendous strength and fortitude. We think she’s probably a 5.

(and stealing his girl), and then trying to resurrect his dead girlfriend. Apparently those things were frowned upon in ancient Egypt. Lance makes a case for his enneagram number. Kate had nothing. What do you think?

Rick O’Connell is the hero of this adventure. He’s a gun-slinging guide through the deserts of Egypt, and he just happens to develop a crush on the lovely Egyptologist (Evie) in the process. We really had to think on this one. Is he an 8? A counter-phobic 6? None of the above? Comment below and help us decide.

Episode 4: Little Women

Little Women - Kindle edition by Alcott, Louisa May. Humor & Entertainment  Kindle eBooks @ Amazon.com.

In 1868, Louisa May Alcott’s semi-autobiographical work, Little Women, captured the hearts of American readers, and continues to do so today. Whether you’ve come to Little Women through the novel, or one of it’s many film adaptations, the March sisters have become icons.

And since Alcott did such an excellent job creating these rich characters, they are excellent “test cases” for enneagram learning!

First things first… who was the best Jo March? You may choose from Winona Ryder, Saoirse Ronan, or Katherine Hepburn. We prefer to pretend the BBC never made that mini-series.

We thought Beth was probably a 9.

Meg… well… we were less sure about her. We are somewhere between a 2, a 3, and a 6.

Amy might be a 3, but we’re open to debate.

Lance and Kate are agreed, Jo March is a 4. All. Day. Long.

What about you? How would you type the March sisters?

What about Laurie/Teddy?

Episode 3: Dr. Horrible Sing-Along Blog

For this episode, Lance convinced Kate to watch the cult-favorite, Dr. Horrible Sing-Along Blog, staring Neil Patrick Harris, Felicia Day, and Nathan Fillion. This 42 minute mini-movie (which you can watch for free on youtube), tells the story of a master villain, trying to earn a place in the Evil League of Evil. He’s also falling in love with a woman from the laundromat, a do-gooder named Penny. Unfortunately, Penny is dating Dr. Horrible’s nemesis, Captain Hammer. Join us as we flesh out these over-the-top characters, while doing some surprising deep enneagram work.

Join the conversation!

Do you agree that Billy (aka Dr. Horrible) is a 3?

Penny is a sweetheart. Does that mean she’s a 9?

What about Captain Hammer? Can you end Lance and Kate’s debate?

And then there’s Moist? Are you an enneagram Jedi who can convincingly argue a number for him?

Episode 2: Typing House Stark from Game of Thrones

Winter is coming. Actually, it’s just our second episode that’s coming today. In this installment, Lance and Kate dig in and discuss the members of the Stark family. Sometimes they agree. Sometimes they don’t, but there’s lots of good enneagram (and GoT) content in this one!

Rickon- We don’t know.

Bran- Is he even human?

Arya- 8 or counter-phobic 6?

Sansa- We think she’s a 3.

Jon- We’re leaning towards 1. What do you think?

Robb- Lance says he’s a 1. Kate doesn’t have a clue!

Ned- Join the sparky debate. Is he a 1 or a 6? Comment below and settle the debate!

Catelyn Stark- is just a B.

Episode 1: Typing the Disney Renaissance Princesses

In the first Nerdagram Podcast episode, Kate and Lance go back to the 1990s to type some of their favorite princesses. What number do you think Ariel, Jasmine, Belle, and Pocahontas are?

Is Ariel a 4, a 7, or something else?

Jasmine is probably an 8. Change our mind.

Pocahontas might be a 7. She might be a counter-phobic 6. What do you think?

We think Belle is a 9. How about you?
