I’m an enneagram 3. Do you guys know about this personality test?? If not you should stop reading this, go take it online and then come back. It’s that good.
An enneagram 3 is “the achiever.” I’ve learned so much about myself by reading through the descriptions.... it’s kind of crazy how answering a few questions turns into a chapter in a book telling you exactly who you are. 😳
Achievers will achieve at almost any cost. We love work, we are competitive and we don’t back down from a challenge. We are social chameleons, morphing into who we need to be in that moment in order to achieve whatever we need to in that moment.
This is all really great except for one of the big downfalls of a 3 (which I have always known) is we struggle with knowing what actually really makes us fully happy because achieving makes us so happy that we just lean on that instead. As long as we are conquering what’s in front of us, we are cool with just hanging out there and not thinking through how or why we ended up there in the first place.
So, since I never posted the obligatory New Years goal, here is one of mine. I want to spend more time in total silence so I can hear my own thoughts more often. To be honest, running a business with five kids and a hubs, silence is hard to come by so this is actually a lot harder than it sounds.
Ok friends, GO TAKE THE TEST and tell me what your number is! 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 If you already know, write it in the comments and tell me if you were as blown away as I was!
