What did you think of your type-related thoughts and behaviors before you knew about the Enneagram and your type?
I guess I really didn't think much of them. I always knew that I was some weird combination of "overcautious nervous wreck" and "adventurous optimist," I guess I just didn't label it. I think the one thing that enneagram helped me discover about myself is how avoidant I can be. Despite being fairly inwardly focused and centered around solving problems for others, I always thought that my own problems were just overly difficult to solve or convinced myself they were "not serious enough to show concern about." I figured it was a natural and somewhat warranted reaction to circumstance when in reality it was just another evasion tactic. It took me forever to even knowledge that I had any 7 presence at all, but once I did it kind of just tied together that in the end I was just procrastinating against actually dealing with my own struggles.What did you think of your type-related thoughts and behaviors before you knew about the Enneagram and your type?
