Brooklyn Nine-Nine - Gina and the Middle School Mentality

Brooklyn Nine-Nine’s Gina Linetti has a middle-school approach to life. From her passion for dance to her fixation on gossip and drama, Gina resists what many would consider to be adulthood. But just when it might seem tempting to write her off as an immature, head-in-the-clouds slacker, Gina will surprise her colleagues with profound wisdom, an ingenious solution only she could devise, or the reveal that she’s been their secret puppet-master all along. So what if all of life really is just like middle school, and Gina’s the only one who’s switched on enough to see it? Here’s The Take on how Gina Linetti’s middle school mentality is her superpower, and what we can learn from regressing into her mindset.
