Amanda's Blog: Enneagram 3w2

February 6, 2020

Who's tapped into The Enneagram? One of my best friends is so intrigued by it and feels like she's learned so much about herself and the people around her. I had to get in on it. I ordered a book to learn more, took an Enneagram Personality test, and I'm diving into the research. Enneagram is a system of personality typing and the information can be used for personal growth. It can give us a better undestanding of how we and others manage emotions and see the world. 

After taking an Enneagram personality test, I’m type 3 wing 2. Learning all about being a 3 was uncomfortable. 3 is called The Achiever and the descriptions of my type are chillingly accurate. It was actually a little uncomfortable to read and hear about myself and have it be spot on. The good and the not-so-good qualities. For example, type 3, The Achiever, is success oriented, driven, and image-conscious. Type 3's want to feel valuable, strive to impress, are authentic, and are role models who inspire others. They also fear failure. There is SO much more to all of this and I'm just beginning to dive into it all, but I find it so interesting. 

I took the Enneagram Personality Test at It takes about 10 minutes. If you're into this too and have any book or podcast suggestions, I'd love to hear them! xo
