Enneagram for Idiots

Mar 2, 2019

You’re just our type (even if you don’t know your type)

Today is part 1 of 2 on mistyping aka how do you type yourself? This episode is pretty general on typing, we start diving into specific types towards the end (around 1:05 mark). The next episode will be on common mistypes and questions.

In this episode we cover:

- An overview of the 3 centres of intelligence and how to use them as a guide
- How to NOT type yourself
- Why running into a fire doesn’t mean you’re an 8
- HONESTY VS. LYING when typing
- Two good (classic) books for beginners; Personality Types: Using the Enneagram for Self-Discovery and The Wisdom of the Enneagram
- Creating a safe space for others to discover their type and finding safe spaces to discover more about your type (around the 1-hour mark)
- A message board poster thinks they might be a 5, 9, 2 or a 1
- We get HEATED like you get HEATED comparing common traits in the aggressive types 3, 7, 8 (revisiting R Kelly, Trump, Cardi B and a new case study of a 3; Rachel Dolezal)

Resources we learned things from for this episode and recommended continued learning:

Facets of Unity: The Enneagram of Holy Ideas, Personality Types: Using the Enneagram for Self-Discovery, The Widsom of the Enneagram,, Rob Fitzel (the centres and different triads we talk about), Higher Reality Therapy: Nine Pathways to Inner Peace
