Why Knowing Your Enneagram Tritype is Key for Personal Growth

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.

You may have heard “tritype” thrown around when learning about your Enneagram type, and had a bunch of questions come to mind.

3 Ways INFPs are Misunderstood (and What You Can Do About It)

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, Here’s How You Can Break Your Quitting Habit

INFPs often enter new ventures filled with excitement and anticipation. They convince themselves that this new job/relationship/course/volunteer opportunity/hobby will bring them the happiness and fulfillment they’ve been seeking.

Driven by idealism, high expectations, and energetic enthusiasm, they come in with their hearts and minds open—only to have their hopes dashed when their goals prove more difficult to reach than they imagined. Or when the people they’re involved with, or work with, or try to collaborate with, offer resistance instead of cooperation.

INFJ? Here’s Why You Should Laugh at Yourself More Often

For as long as I can remember, I’ve struggled with the ability to laugh at myself. While my brother is a master of self-deprecating humor, I’ve never been able to crack a joke at my past misfortunes.
