Brilliant Balance

Dec 21, 2021

The Enneagram is a model of the human psyche. It reveals what we do to feel loved and what motivates our behavior. The Enneagram uses numbers, instead of language, to explain attitude and behavior.

Even though there are nine distinct personality types, one dominates each of our lives. It is our unconscious orientation that drives our behavior. 

While you may not resonate with every feature of your type, when you understand it, it reveals how to become the best version of yourself. You learn where you fit and become closer to who you are. 

In this episode, you’ll get a quick glimpse at the nine complex personalities (and I’ll share how you can figure out which one matches yours).

Show highlights include:

  • How to become the best version of yourself with an ancient personality test.  (3:26)
  • How to tell if you have a ‘Type 1’ work ethic (with too much control and criticism). (8:03)
  • The red flags that you’ve lost time for self care and turned into a 24/7 Helper. (10:51)
  • Why you’ve never pumped the brakes and found praise in your accomplishments. (12:34)
  • The Artist archetype for following your creative impulses and always leading by emotion. (15:03)
  • Why curiosity and being hyper-observant has made you a Natural Investigator. (16:26)
  • Why you’re afraid of making the wrong choice and always relying on others for support. (18:11)
  • What your enthusiastic, energetic, and adventurous spirit reveals about commitment and routine. (19:57)
  • How to tell if you have Challengers confidence (and the morals to follow). (21:39)
  • Why Peacemaking abilities can leave you feeling unappreciated and overlooked. (23:33)
  • The book for digging deeper into your personality type and what motivates behavior. (25:49)
