What is Enneagram type | Part 4

MORE ABOUT EGO STRUCTURES In addition to the higher level architecture that is true for all 9 types, all Enneagram types also have a specific pattern of thinking (fixation) and feeling (passion), predictable behavioral patterns but in three variations based on subtype, and a particular dimension of spiritual attunement that gets blocked by the psychological Ego structure. Part 5 and 6 blogs illustrate the Ego structure for Enneagram type 1.

What is Enneagram type | Part 3

WHAT IS EGO STRUCTURE? Each of the nine Enneagram types has its own Ego structure, but there is a higher level architecture that is true for all 9 types: a specific false reality, a unique worldview, an ego ideal, a deep unmet longing, a thirst and avoidance, and a primary defense mechanism. Part 4 blog in this series is a graphic illustrating the mental and emotional patterns of type, the behaviors most manifest in the three versions or subtypes of each type, and the connection between each type’s unique spiritual attunement and how the type-based Ego structure directly blocks access to this particular spiritual dimension.

Development | courage

Courage is being scared to death…and saddling up anyway. ~ John Wayne Real courage is not avoiding what scares us most, then thinking we are full of courage. Neither is courage doing something terribly risky for the primary purpose of showing yourself and others that you are full of courage. Going deeper, each enneagram type could take the opportunities to show up, face that which is challenging to us, and evoke the truest meaning of courage. How can each type “saddle up”? Enneagram Ones What is something that scares you to death to give up? How about giving up structure and control? Ones rely on structure and control – both self-control and control of their immediate environment – to feel less anxious, more relaxed, and less stressed. Try giving up structure and control, for a minute, an hour, even a day. Enneagram Twos What is something that scares you to death to give up? How about the need to be in contact with others constantly? There are so many ways to be in contact with others: by email, FB, phone, in person, and even just in your mind. Some Twos will say they can do this easily, but what they are often thinking of is that they are not actually with another person. Try giving up being with others in any form, for a minute, an hour, even a day. Enneagram Threes What is something that scares you do death to give up? How about the need to always have and be focused on goals and plans? In fact, most Threes say they are addicted to goals and plans, feeling lost or disoriented without them. Try giving up a goal and a related plan you have, for a minute, an hour, even a day. Enneagram Fours What is something that scares you to death to give up? How about the need to continuously feel as if something is missing in your life or something is wrong with you? Most Fours want to be deeply self-accepting and satisfied, and yet…. Try giving up the idea that you are intrinsically deficient and accept the idea that you are perfectly OK, for a minute, an hour, even a day. Enneagram Fives What is something that scares you to death to give up? How about the need to rely only on your own resources? You may be well-resourced, but sometimes single sources of resource can dry up or need to be replenished. Try giving up the idea that you can’t rely on anyone else to provide you with resources and starting thinking about who you can rely on, for a minute, an hour, even a day. Enneagram Sixes What is something that scares you to death to give up? How about the idea that you can’t trust yourself, but somehow you can trust others’ ideas and opinions more than your own? Think a lot about why that is! Try giving up the notion that the advice of others is better than your own – yours might even be netter – for a minute, an hour, even a day. Enneagram Sevens What is something that scares you to death to give up? How about the idea that you must have ultimate freedom of movement and thought at all times or somehow something terrible will occur? Try giving up that total freedom is an absolute must-have and see what occurs when you either create or respond to another’s limits, for a minute, an hour, even a day. Enneagram Eights What is something that scares you to death to give up? How about the need to never show or admit that you ever feel scared about anything, so bold and brave are you? Try giving up the sense that you must live your life as a super-hero, the person who is bigger than the rest and so can save the city or nation, for a minute, an hour, even a day. Enneagram Nines What is something that scares you to death to give up? How about the need to keep yourself small or less visible, to not asset yourself, and to act like nothing really bothers you? Go inside yourself and find the place where you know that none of this really serves you anymore. Try giving up the idea that invisibility is better than visibility, that being assertive is being pushy, for a minute, an hour, even a day.
