Enneagram 9

If you have never heard of the enneagram, you should definitely check it out! It has been amazing to learn my enneagram number and see how it affects my daily life. There are nine enneagram numbers, and each person falls under one little more heavily than all the others. Here’s a summary of the types:

Type 1- the Perfectionist, they have a consistent “inner critic” always criticizing, and they always feel the need to be perfect.

Type 2- the Helper, they are always looking for ways to please others.

Type 3- the Achiever, they are image conscious and look for ways to excel in life.

Type 4- the Individualist, they march to the beat of their own drum. They are dramatic and expressive.

Type 5- the Investigator, they are drawn to deeper study, they can be seen as secretive and withdrawn.

Type 6- The Loyalist, they are committed and loyal to the ones they love, but can be very anxious and long for security.

Type 7- the Dreamer- they are always looking to have fun. They can be scattered and spontaneous.

Type 8- the Challenger- they are confrontational, and like a good conflict. They can be bold and aggressive

Type 9- the Peacemaker, the avoid conflict at all costs, and they are agreeable and easy going.

These descriptions are very brief. If you have any interest in learning more about the enneagram I would encourage you to look up yourenneagramcoach.com, and look for the book, That Road Back to You, by Ian Morgan Cron and Suzanne Stabile. Both of these resources have helped me figure out more about myself and others around me.

I’m an enneagram nine. Along with that comes a peacemaking easy going girl, who struggles with complacency, apathy, and feeling at a loss to herself. I’m often lost inside my own thoughts, trying to figure out if what I’m thinking would make sense to anyone else or not.

A pastor once said, “Be a voice, not an echo.” I can often feel stuck reflecting everyone around me, but losing myself in the process. God calls us out. He calls us to step out and shine light in a dark world. He calls us to be bold with our faith. Let’s be our own voice, not just a person echoing someone else.
