Enneagram for Idiots

Try listening to this. We wish you luck. Or, just Google the Enneagram.

In this episode, we continue our series on the instinctual variants and focus on the Self-Preservation 7 AKA “The Hungry/Happy Hedonist”, “The Gourmand”, “The Keeper of the Castle” or… HUGH HEFNER?!?! A self-pres 7w8? Is this the same type as neurotic cult leaders? Anyway, here’s what we talked about (resources are below):

– How the 7s passion of gluttony + fear of emotional pain mixes with the self-preservation instinct
– Anecdotal experiences of Maris’ family, which is full of self-pres 7w6s
– We explore how a self-pres 7 might like to exercise
– Why do self-pres 7s want people in their circle to be comfortable and happy?
– The self-pres 7s ulterior motives and the challenge (for us personally) in seeing it
– Tips for self-growth and behaving in new ways outside of the SP7s fixations
