  1. [Enneagram Type 9] COVID 19 and Type 9. Fear of loss and being alone.

    Type 9 Forum - The Peacemaker
    I am curious how type 9s have been reacting to the coronavirus pandemic. Everything I've read (which, granted, is very meme-y and didn't contain much nuance) made it sound like nines would all be numbed out and ignoring the situation. To be honest, I would love to have that reaction right now. I...

    Enneagram Personality Theory Forum
    Out of curiosity... Nines tend to accommodate other people in order to avoid conflict, which seems to correspond with Perceivers' tendency to be willing to change their pre-established plans. So, are there any Perceiving Nines out there willing to confirm my theory? What about Judging Nines?

    Type 9 Forum - The Peacemaker

    Enneagram Personality Theory Forum
    Author: Jerry Wagner When I was first introduced to the Enneagram, we got only the bad stuff -- the distortions, fixations, compulsions, exaggerations, vices, bad breath, etc. When I, in turn, presented the Enneagram styles this way, people would ask: "Isn’t there anything good about any...
