Anyone else always late to the party? I saw the word “enneagram” many times in instagram stories without giving it much thought or exploring the real meaning of the term.
One sleepless night, I finally caved and I subsequently found myself scrolling hashtags of enneagram content for far longer than I’d like to admit.
I was skeptical at how accurate this could really be, but it was spot on for me. It’s similar to a personality test you may have taken in the past, but in our social media culture, enneagram is a fun way to embrace your passions and motivations.
Now you’re able to share posts that are identifiable and artsy while fully embracing all you are and learning to love you.
Not only is it beneficial to self-identify your type and learn to grow, but the benefit of others sharing their type is where better communication lies.
If I know I’m a three (and I’m a tried-and-true three to the core), and I’m interacting with an eight, I’ll know enough about their type to interact beneficially. Again, like personality tests, it’s as much about knowing yourself as it is about knowing others.
If you haven’t bought in to the enneagram instagram culture, I encourage you to give it a try. Below are a few accounts worth a follow if you’re new to the game!
