Judging personality types have so many strengths, but one of our greatest is the ability to thrive in a structured routine. Judgers are amazing helpers when you need someone to line up all of the details. We’re great at laying down a game plan for a vacation, organizing someone’s space, and serving as personal financial advisors. So what happens when a detail-oriented, structured being like yourself finds there is no structure?
One of the most fundamental principles of the Enneagram is that you self-type. This means that even as an Enneagram expert, I can’t tell you your Enneagram type. You need to recognize yourself within one of the nine habits of attention.
Note: While many states have reopened post-COVID, we realize that for some of us throwing any kind of party isn't a good idea right now. But this was too fun of an idea not to share! Please make sure to adhere to local rules, recommendations, and guidance related to the COVID-19 pandemic. That could mean having a virtual party, having a party with just your social bubble, or holding off on having your party until life gets back to normal where you live.
It’s not unusual for ENTJs to find it hard to handle their emotions. We’re the personality type that prefers to squash our emotions and ignore them as much as possible. Life is less complicated when you can take out the emotion, right?
The problem is, to build healthy relationships, you need to learn how to deal with your emotions and let them show from time to time. If you ignore them for too long, you risk jumping straight to anger next time you feel any negative emotion bubbling to the surface.
What do you think about when you think of stress?
For some of us, the word stress conjures an image of anxiety, frustration and irritation. For others, stress feels like chronic overwhelm: like everything is just too much.
A first-of-its-kind original, scientific study showed that Personality Type is strongly correlated with certain health-risk factors and may predict susceptibility to specific chronic illnesses. These findings may help patients with innate predispositions to avoid developing serious medical conditions.
Over the past year, we’ve all had our unique experiences of adapting to life in a time of pandemic. With lockdowns and work from home mandates, many of us were forced to endure months of near-solitude, and saw our daily routines disrupted. While some saw these restrictions as an opportunity for slowing down, others struggled with the lack of social interaction imposed.
Have you ever met two people of the same Enneagram type and thought there’s a night and day difference between them? Just like no two people are the same, no two types are the same either. There are multiple factors that alter how your type expresses itself, including subtypes, wings, and a word that’s become more and more buzzworthy as of late: tritypes.
You may have heard “tritype” thrown around when learning about your Enneagram type, and had a bunch of questions come to mind.
We’ve all felt misunderstood at times, especially by personality types different from our own. But if you’re an INFP personality type, you likely have had that experience a lot. INFPs have so much going on inside, but we tend to keep most of what we think and feel hidden, at least until we know someone well. And as introverts, we don’t always express ourselves easily.
The ENTJ personality type is bold, confident and charismatic. As a result, the things that scare most people don’t bother ENTJs. Presentations, important meetings, confrontation—these are all scenarios where ENTJs excel.
So what does terrify ENTJs?
