Jan 29, 2020


Enneagram is having such a moment. Chances are you either think “that person is such a [insert number here]” any time you meet someone new ,or you think “what the heck is this enneagram I keep hearing about all the time?” Well, today we have an EXPERT on the podcast: Beth McCord, the founder of Your Enneagram Coach. She helps explain the different types and how you can learn to grow and understand both yourself and others through this tool.


What is the Enneagram?

  • The enneagram suggests that there are nine different personality types.
  • There are four core motivations for each type: fear, desire, weakness, and longing.
  • The key is to learn the ‘why’ behind all of your decisions and use it as a tool for growth.
  • “Real transformation means we have to take the time to look inward.”


The 9 Types

  • 1: Moral Perfectionist
  • 2: Supportive Advisor
  • 3: Achiever
  • 4: Romantic Individualist
  • 5: Investigative Thinker
  • 6: Loyal Guardians
  • 7: Entertaining Optimist
  • 8: Protective Challengers
  • 9: Peaceful Mediators


Enneagram + Dating

  • It doesn’t matter what number dates what number, the key to success is both being healthy in your own numbers.
  • The biggest piece of advice: Look for someone who is willing to grow.
  • “We don’t want to use the enneagram as a sword or a shield.”
