I’m a Type 3: The Achiever.
This was the first time I’ve done an Enneagram test before and DANG is it accurate!
This is from the Truity Test that I took (I’ll link to it below)
“About the Enneagram:
The Enneagram is a personality system that aims to reveal how emotions drive our lives and how we engage with others in an effort to get what we want. It is derived from metaphysical concepts and has a strong spiritual element, with each of the nine types prone to its own set of spiritual “sins” or weaknesses of character.
Enneagram types are difficult to assess in a typical personality test because they often describe processes that we are not fully conscious of. In fact, our Enneatype may drive our behavior so deeply that we assume that the way we do and feel things is simply how everyone operates, when in fact it is characteristic of our type. For this reason, you will get more accurate results on an Enneagram test if you have done some self-reflection already.
Each of the nine types of the Enneagram has its own driving force, which is centered around a particular emotion. Some types experience strong emotions, while other types aim to avoid emotions in one form or another. However, whether running from emotions or diving into them, each type describes some aspect of emotional experience.”
These are the 9 Types:
- Type 1: The Perfectionist
- Type 2: The Giver
- Type 3: The Achiever
- Type 4: The Individualist
- Type 5: The Investigator
- Type 6: The Loyalist
- Type 7: The Enthusiast
- Type 8: The Challenger
- Type 9: The Peacemaker
According to the Enneagram Institute, here is a summary of a Type 3:
“Threes are self-assured, attractive, and charming. Ambitious, competent, and energetic, they can also be status-conscious and highly driven for advancement. They are diplomatic and poised, but can also be overly concerned with their image and what others think of them. They typically have problems with workaholism and competitiveness. At their Best: self-accepting, authentic, everything they seem to be—role models who inspire others.”
I LOVE that! HECK YEAH I AM!
I, of course thrive to be a “healthy three”. Because on the flip side, there’s also some areas that three’s need to be aware of.
Three’s can also become so focused on ACHIEVING, that they forget to enjoy the ride. It also reminded me to stay focused on my mission to serve OTHERS – and live in that lane, that I am here to help others find their fire.
The enneagram will give you 2 sides to each type: a “Healthy” and an “Unhealthy”. Because as you can imagine, any specific trait can be either a positive or a negative or somewhere in between depending on where you are on your personal development journey.
I really loved reading the results of my test and ultimately using it to better understand my strengths and weaknesses in order to continuing improving my life.
I’ve linked the Enneagram that I used here:
All in all, use it and take a step back and look at it critically to help you life your best life.
Take the test and let me know on instagram under my post what TYPE you are!
Can’t wait to hear 🙂
