This was so moving! I almost started crying again! Same person as yesterday's post...
It was her talk in the Wholehearted Enneagram Summit that made me think seriously about the possibility that I might be a type 7, instead of a type 9. And here she is, again, talking about parental orientation, in a recent Enneagram post...
Enneagram Summit Revelation: New Type
This past week has been wonderful! Each day, I listened to 2 or 3 Christian Enneagram coaches share about the Enneagram and felt steeped in both connection and new information.
There was something about hearing about the Enneagram from a Christian perspective that expanded my understanding of it. And before I knew it, I was understanding both the type 7 and the type 9 in slightly different ways.
The Enneagram: A Christian Perspective
I can't articulate it completely, but I think the Christian overlay helped me see that the type 7 wasn't *just* a hedonistic party animal. And after I heard variations of core desire to be happy, satisfied and content several times, along with some of the other characteristics, and what they look like in everyday life, I saw myself.
I'm not a type 9. I'm a type 7.
I knew I was a tritype with 9 and 7 and 4 in it, but for the past decade, I have been thinking I lead with nine. Now, I believe I lead with 7...
So I have started this blog to dive in, so to speak.
