Do you know about Clubhouse, a social networking app launched during the pandemic that’s been growing like a tidal wave ever since? Introduced in March of 2020, it’s an audio-only platform that’s been described as part conference call, part talk radio - think of it as the more sophisticated and exclusive version of the audio app HouseParty. With moderators like Tesla/SpaceX CEO Elon Musk, venture capitalist and internet architect Marc Andresen and actor Jared Leto, the Clubhouse talks are more than just mindless chatter.

Type 9 Peacemaker: Movie Club
There is a good chance you, our avoidant Type 9, are in Clubhouse because you’re procrastinating about something more important that you really don’t want to do.

You’ll have fun in Movie Club.
As you can see, there’s a wide spectrum of topics and interests in Clubhouse.

And the Enneagram gives you yet another way to focus on talks that resonate for you. Welcome to the Club!
