Enneagram Type 9 (9w8 9w1)
The Enneagram Type 9 is all about achieving inner peace. The Enneagram Type Nine is all about figuring out ways to live in harmony with their environment. This can lead them to being very creative and understandings of others. They can be very empathetic and prefer to compromise instead of imposing demands on others. However, this can be problematic if they sacrifice too much of themselves. The Enneagram 9 is at their best when they are being instinctual and know how to work with themselves and their environments. When they become detached from this spiritual and instinctual center, they can become too uptight and lose any momentum they have gained. The 9 is at the top of the Enneagram and therefore shares many of the traits of all the other types. The Nine must learn to assert themselves and their visions if they want to understand themselves better. It is much easier to attach to someone more assertive than them instead of understanding how they can strike out on their own. They would be their strongest if they approached a problem head on, instead of finding a way to tiptoe around it. The 9 is great at understanding others and creating harmony, they just need to learn that it is okay for them to apply themselves and go against the grain sometimes, especially if they feel very called to do so.
