I am super fascinated by the Enneagram. Annie F. Downs who I just think is incredible talks about it all the time. She asks all the guests on her podcast what number they are, or tries to guess for herself. The Enneagram isn’t about putting people in boxes, it is about understanding what makes people tick and how they give and receive everything in their life. It is about understanding yourself and others a little better so that you can live your best life. For those of you who don’t know what that is:
The purpose of the Enneagram is not to put you into a box, but to help you identify both the strengths and the limitations of a preferred strategy and to give you guidance on how you may develop more capacity beyond it. And of course it is a tool for understanding others too. (Thank you Google)
I have taken the test multiple times on multiple sites and it is ALWAYS the same!! So, what I know is…I have a very strong personality. Again, something that I am pretty proud of. I am a 3 (hardcore), 3 is The Motivator. The Motivator says, “I need to succeed.” My wing or the 2nd highest score I have is for a 2, 2 is The Helper. The Helper says, “I must help others.”
Last Spring I wrote more specifics about both my numbers. Take a look here. Ten Minutes: Enneagram Personality Type
