Misidentification: 3 vs 5 (video)


A new full length video is up on the Enneagram Girl YouTube Channel, and this time I’m touching on the main differences that help us to discern between 3 and 5– this inspired by a conversation I had with some friends last night!  Check it out and also the info graphics and instincts for the Achiever and the Investigator may be helpful!

As always, feel free to reach out to me at enneagramgirl@yahoo.com if you have questions or thoughts. 🙂

The Wings of Enneagram 1

Hey friends!  I’ve decided to create some “shorts” to fill in the time (that I am slowly editing) between my longer videos, and I realized that perfect bite-sized topic is wings.  As usual, I’ll start from the beginning with 1, the Reformer.  Check it out, and watch for more short videos addressing other wing differences in the future! 🙂

Core Type Refresher

I’ve realized over the past week or so, that perhaps it was time for me to put those core type info graphics front and center again.  Another way that you can find material on specific types is by using the menu in the upper right, and choosing a type– that will bring up everything I’ve talked about on that type so far!  I’m steadily adding content (as there is no limit with the topic of personality and a tool like the Enneagram!) but let me know if there’s a specific topic that you need to hear about sooner than later. 🙂

With that said, here are the Basics of Core Type graphics again for you! Click to see more on each type.

Video: 6 vs. 9

Hey Enneagram friends!  After quite the gap, I’ve finally posted another YouTube Enneagram Girl video, this time examining some recent nuances I’ve noticed about misidentification between 6 and 9!  I touch on some of the differences, similarities, health paths and even venture into correlation with MBTI a bit! 😉

Check it out, and feel free to ask questions if you have any!  I hope to be creating more and more videos in the months to come, so keep an eye out.

Enneagram Girl on YouTube!


Hey Enneagram friends!  I’m excited to say that my vision of extending this blog onto another medium has finally come to fruition!  Initially, I thought I would go for a Podcast, but came to the conclusion that the visual element does bring quite a bit of value and depth to teaching.  I hope you will join me over there at the Enneagram Girl Channel, as I continue to unpack and investigate topics of identity, personality, relational dynamics and psychology with this awesome tool that we call The Enneagram!

If you have enjoyed by info-graphics and written breakdown of these things, you won’t be dissapointed!  I’m already playing around with some really fun ways to include those graphic elements in the videos— you can see a bit of it even in the Intro video that I just posted. 🙂

Have suggestions, questions or a video idea that you want to share?  Feel free to reach out to me at Enneagramgirl@yahoo.com

Peace + Hope,

Eternal Study

I started this blog mostly because I have an insatiable desire to understand people (myself included)– who they are underneath masks and first impressions, what their mask is made of and if they even know they are wearing it. How much nurture and nature contribute to these things, and in what ways?  My mind’s supply of these questions never ends.

Several weeks ago, my Mom and I were driving back from a Mother’s Day morning at a vintage and antiques market, and on the way passed my childhood church. I hadn’t been there since I was 7, and yet, recognized it immediately (even noting that the rusty, ancient playground set had been taken down). That moment, like so many others, launched me into a frenzy of thought over how I remembered that so clearly, and what determines a person’s rate/accuracy of recollection– even, how that might be tied to personality.

Study of the Enneagram has given me such a great tool with which to pursue these questions, and even after almost five years, I’m still observing and studying on a daily basis.  It blows my mind to bits to encounter person after person, that see this system simply as a fun quiz, or conversely as a means of stereotyping themselves or others. Either perspective skips past the balanced place that uses the Enneagram as a lens with which to see the behaviors of self and others through– a lens that reveals the why.

Humanity is full of rich and interesting characters, but still I’ve found that the Enneagram applies to each one I’ve seen or known.  That’s pretty crazy, definitely not something I would have believed when first introduced to “The Wisdom of The Enneagram”. In truth, though, God loves patterns and systems– science, history and mathematics are all chock full of them. It stands to reason that our lives and personal identities would too. Our responsibility is merely to see those patterns, find out what they mean, and respond differently because of them.

Though I’ll surely continue writing here, I’ve been encouraged several times of late to consider starting an Enneagram Girl podcast— I’m a lover of words, written and spoken, but there are times that I’ve realized the overwhelming benefit of spoken words. Specifically the numerous times that I’ve been explaining Enneagram in writing to a person, and then reach the point of, “Argh. I’ll need to explain the rest of this in person.” Maybe it’s how much longer it takes to type, than to speak?  Each form has its benefit to be sure, but in the coming month, I’ll be looking into starting a podcast!  I hope that if you’ve enjoyed my writing about the Enneagram, here, that you’ll check out the audio version if/when it comes to fruition. You’ll know either way, because I’ll surely post about it here!

And so, the eternal study continues. 🙂
