Teaching MBTI + Enneagram Typing Through Fictional Characters


Enneagram is a useful tool for self-awareness and improvement, by identifying the core motivating needs and fears for each of the 9 Enneagram types. The following is a list of useful resources and additional information to help you on your quest to find your number.

The Simplified Enneagram:

  • One – The Need to be Perfect
  • Two – The Need to be Needed
  • Three – The Need to Succeed
  • Four – The Need to be Special / Unique
  • Five  – The Need to Understand
  • Six – The Need for Certainty
  • Seven – The Need to Avoid Pain
  • Eight – The Need to Be Against
  • Nine – The Need to Avoid

Profiles adapted from Claudio Naranjo’s book, Character and Neurosis.

With Subtype Information and Growth Recommendations by Beatrice Chestnut’s The Complete Enneagram: 27 Paths to Greater Self-Knowledge

The volume goes far more in-depth, but I assembled the most defining characteristics here. It has a more negative slant than a lot of Enneagram profiles, to ‘shock’ you into self-awareness of the destructive habits of each Enneagram type. Your instinctual response, if you are this number, will be to feel attacked. Let it happen. After that, you can work on a process of eliminating these traits that inhibit you from being your true self.
