They tend to be very strong executives -- in business or politics, able to make difficult decisions, command a room, and effectively manage and rally teams. They were born to stand out with shining self-confidence, and are not afraid to be the first -- which is very much in line with the fact that Harris has become the United States’ first-ever woman of color to take the office of Vice President.

Described as the “GPS” of wisdom, the Enneagram system of personality has been gaining popularity over the last decade. The Enneagram suggests that our experience in life is dictated largely by where our attention goes. The system outlines nine distinct “habits of attention,” and these habits of attention are correlated with personality traits.
