Enneagram Type 7 Relationship Compatibility

Enneagram Type Sevens are fun, enthusiastic and romantic partners. They enjoy planning creative dates and keeping the spark alive in their relationships. However, they can struggle with having difficult conversations or paying attention to the details. 

So, which Enneagram types are the most compatible with the Type Seven? There isn’t one answer. Sevens can be compatible with any of the types as long as effective communication and mutual love and respect are in place. 

What Do Enneagram Sevens Secretly Want in Relationships?

Having a true partner in crime can be an absolute delight—whether that’s a friend who is always up for an adventure or a partner who says ‘yes’ more often than ‘no’ to your wild suggestions. For Type Sevens, the best things in life are often made better by sharing them. A good bottle of wine, a sunset, an arthouse film or Sunday’s bottomless brunch, are all more enjoyable when shared with someone.

Understanding the Psychological Defense Mechanisms of the Enneagram

This blog post is part of our Fundamentals of the Enneagram series, which takes a deeper dive into all the Enneagram elements - wings, arrows, subtypes, centers of intelligence, growth pathways and more. For an overview of the series, start with our introductory post here. 

In the introductory blog post to Enneagram Fundamentals, I described defenses as being like band aids we have forgotten to take off. Covering up wounds that never quite healed. 

Introducing Our New Series: Fundamentals of the Enneagram

I was first introduced to the Enneagram while contracting for a company on a change project. They said “Our organization is mostly Sixes. That will make change harder. Here is Helen Palmer’s book. Go.” 

As I cracked open the book I was thinking, “Six what?” And so I began my journey to determine my type and try to grasp how to apply this knowledge to the organization.

Not Sure If You are An Enneagram Type 4 or a Type 7? Ask Yourself These 4 Questions

The Enneagram Type 4 Individualist and Type 7 Enthusiast can seem like oil and water and with dramatically different habits of attention, it can be easy to assume they never get mixed up. 

Types 7s look to the positive, seek new experiences, and avoid (either consciously or subconsciously) negative emotions. An assertive personality, Type 7s consider personal freedom a core value.

Why I Hated my Enneagram Results (and What I Did About It)

Recently, I decided to take the Enneagram test on Truity. I hadn’t even heard of Enneagrams, so I was intrigued. I purposely did not research the Enneagram system so it wouldn’t influence the way I answered the questions. We all want to be portrayed in our best light, so if I knew Enneagrams were about emotions, I might subconsciously try to sound less emotional.

I was excited to read my results. It’s fun to unlock the mysteries about ourselves and why we do what we do.
