The Enthusiast! Enneagram 7 Guest Post

I love the insights I’ve gained from studying the Enneagram, and here is a Guest post I did which I hope you’ll check out ๐Ÿ™‚

unfiltered from the heart

This is a guest post from G of bone&silver, who shares her experiences of discovering her Enneagram as a 7, which is described as the Enthusiast by the Enneagram Institute. If you would like to share your experiences with self-discovery through the Enneagram, please message me through gmail at โ€œTiffanybeingfree.โ€

Thank you, G, for sharing with us your journey as a 7!!!

Namasteย

โ€˜Do you know what Enneagram number you are?,โ€™ I was asked. โ€˜Because Iโ€™m an Eight, and if youโ€™re going to date me, you need to know what youโ€™re dealing with, so take this book home today.โ€™

Thus began my in-depth exploration of the Enneagram, which firstly saw me read the chapter about Eights and think โ€˜Phew, theyโ€™re a bit intense, Iโ€™m glad Iโ€™m not one of those.โ€™

I skimmed through a few other numbers, got a bit bored, then asked a smart friend who usedโ€ฆ

    • Haha, I just love finding out people’s numbers, it’s fascinating ๐Ÿ™‚ I am such an Enthusiast… which is often followed by a loss of interest… I admire Five’s diligence and attention to detail ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. Wow, I’m intrigued now and have never heard about this. How very cool. It reminds me of a class I once took about the different leaders. Recognizing their personal traits and how some are cheerleaders and others prefer to be more quiet. It was eye opening.

    • No I haven’t- the Enneagram just grabbed me so fully.

      I have several friends who are Nines: deciding features include being happy to lie down & do nothing for most of the day, plus not liking disagreements- do they sound like you?

      • Not liking disagreements, yes… lying down all day? Not exactly! Though I do need to build in daydreaming time, meditation time, and do-not-much-of-anything time into each day!

        • yes, you sound like a 9… ๐Ÿ™‚ [Daydreaming, meditating, and do-not-much-of-anything time often happen lying down or reclining… the need for that quiet time is essential, however you sit/stand/lie for it] ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Ha ha, Gabrielle, this is great! I can totally see you as a 7. I’m a 2, with a 3 and 7 close runners up. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I studied the Enneagram a bit with Robert Holden in a coaching school I was in. Fascinating, isn’t it?
    Blessings to you. Lovely to reconnect.

    • That’s interesting: I have quite a few 2’s in my world, with a 3 Wing so they are slightly achievement/goal orientated: sounds like you ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿผ

      • Yes! Wow no kidding. Maybe we’ll end up meeting some time. BTW I know a number of people in Melbourne. They do cool spiritual gatherings, and I visited a # of years ago. Blessings Gabrielle!

      • It seems I’m a walking contradiction. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ I’m mostly a 2 (and I really don’t see me like that) but also high on 3, 8, 1 and 9 on one test.
        A second type of test also gave me a highest 2 and high 6, 7, 8 and 3! I’m a mess! ๐Ÿ™ˆ

        • Ok, that’s interesting- it can be a challenge to admit the truth of your number- Sevens are often described as superficial and/or scattered, which I wouldn’t immediately identify with… and yet, I AM comfortable being gossipy, & slightly lazy/unfocused, so yes, I had to admit that in my more ‘negative’ aspects, I actually AM those things! Which is what helped me find the truth. Because a Seven at their best is positive, generous, & brings the gift of Joy to many: this is absolutely true of me ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ˜
          Twos value community, & being needed; Threes like Achievements, & can be a bit aloof; Nines are pretty laid back, while Eights are the pushy, feisty, won’t-take-No-for-an-answer leaders- any one of those resonate? Reading a good book will help you; you could be a Two with a Three Wing…
          You’re obviously a complex character, but everyone can find their number eventually ๐ŸŒˆโค

          • The problem is I do see myself everywhere. ๐Ÿ˜‚ I have a lot of two, for sure. At work, I can definitely be an eight when I have to be, which is often. Because of that, I tend to switch off at home (this caused plenty of arguments with BH). I adapt and I am fluid. You’re right: complex indeed! โค๏ธโค๏ธโค๏ธ

          • A Two with a Three wing would be very assertive & achievement orientated, while still caring about their community; an Eight is quite ruthless, & can trample people (which a Two would never do)

    Wowowowow, great post! I just did the test and it looks like I’m mainly a 6 with 2 and 4 coming in close behind! ๐Ÿ™‚
