The classic ENTJ personality type will always put control at the top of their list of priorities. The need for control is absolutely central to the ENTJ character. So what happens when they're faced with a situation where they have zero control—like with recent global events? Short answer: they feel a sense of loss or hopelessness that’s hard to shake off.
Dolly Parton sings country hits like “Jolene,” writes acclaimed songs like Whitney Houston’s “I Will Always Love You,” and acts in popular films like Steel Magnolias and 9 to 5. It’s hard to imagine another artist so aptly living up to her Typefinder moniker: The Performer. Her bold personality and big heart have made her universally beloved in Hollywood, Nashville and beyond.
Perseverant when it comes to their ideas and goals, INFJs are exceptionally decisive when it’s something they care about. As Judgers, they enjoy having things settled and are particularly happy when their decisions can change someone’s life for the better.
Ugh, the dreaded performance review.
If you’re an INFP personality type who manages other people, chances are you hate conducting performance reviews as much as others despise sitting through them.
You’ve seen it before and perhaps been guilty of it yourself:
A Type Four who is convinced they’re a Type Six because they struggle with anxiety.
Or, a Type Seven who thinks they’re a Type Three because they’re always hustling.
Perhaps you know a Type Nine who resonates with all the types and confuses themselves with another number.

It is a truth universally acknowledged that Jane Austen is one of the most renowned authors of the 19th century, and one of the most famous women from her day. Although she wasn’t so successful during her lifetime, biographers -- and, of course, her popular novels -- show us how intense and singular Jane really was.
According to accounts and texts, Jane was most likely an Enneagram Type Five, and a Myers-Briggs INTJ. Here’s more about her fascinating and unique personality.
Not only did the Covid-19 pandemic disrupt the way many of us work, it also changed the recruitment process for both companies and candidates. As if job searching wasn’t difficult enough, now we also have to navigate online interviews, often under challenging circumstances. Studies indicate that less than 35 percent of communication is strictly verbal. So, it can be easy to feel like you’re at a big disadvantage when you’re trying to connect with someone in a two dimensional space.
That’s the bad news.
In yesterday’s post, we explored the dark side of the Enneagram and what happens when each of the types falls victim to their habit of attention and becomes fixated in their pattern of thinking. In this state of contraction, the dark side is exposed, and from crimes of passion to crimes of omission, the behavior gets ugly.
One of the major benefits of the Enneagram personality test is that it not only helps you understand who you are, it gives you a very clear path to be the best version of yourself. The fundamental idea is that we each have a habit of attention we lean too far into. The Enneagram encourages us to relax this habit of attention, come back into the center, and share the best version of our true selves with the world. A world in which everyone had completely relaxed their habit of attention would be a world of great compassion.
