Why Knowing Your Enneagram Type Leads to Greater Self-Awareness and More Clarity in Relationships
The reason why I'm so passionate about the Enneagram and why I love it so much is because it's so useful on two fronts. One is a self-exploration and understanding tool. I gained so much self-awareness, things made sense, things that I thought about my personality, my whole life that were “different” and made me me.
They all tied together and made sense under the themes of my Enneagram type. And the more I learned and the more I read and the more I interacted on it, the more I felt like I could understand myself and be able to articulate that to others, to share more about myself, and be vulnerable.
Additionally, as an interpersonal tool, it can be so incredibly valuable to understand one another's types to be able to understand, where we are coming from, what's motivating us, how might likely to respond, and how we can adapt ourselves to bring out the best in each other.
