19: Exploring the Nine Drives of the Enneagram

podcast Nov 02, 2021

 

It’s finally time. After mentioning the Enneagram in previous episodes, it’s time to explore how this tool can improve self-awareness. Focusing on self-awareness is crucial in discerning and walking in your Life Calling. Clarity from the Enneagram helps point out inclinations and quirks of what drives a person’s actions. In a way, the tool gives a glimpse into what dictates decisions, and which role a personality typically fulfills when with others. Understand how to navigate your Life Calling journey through this tool’s identification of personality types.

Naturally, exploring how to use the Enneagram means learning the parts of the tool first. In today’s conversation, listen to a thoughtful description of the 9 Enneagram personality styles. Each description talks about the core motivations of the 9 types, which can each be described as a verb. This simple approach attaches easy-to-remember verbs to the types that allow you to reflect on how your own actions match the personality types.

Knowing your unique personality is essential to being successful. You’ll find this episode gives the space to examine which of the 9 types can guide you to further understand how to show up in your Life Calling. When examining, don’t forget to pay attention to the two breaks in the conversation. Each break gives you time to truly digest what you are learning, and provides a word of caution for using the tool properly.
