Today we are kicking off what I suspect is going to be one of my favorite series to date-Clutter & The Enneagram.
If you have been around me for more than a hot second, you will know that I have a slight obsession with the Enneagram (at least according to my family). If you’re new to the Enneagram, it’s a personality typology with nine distinct types. What makes the Enneagram different from other personality assessments is that your Enneagram type is determined by your core motivation, rather than strictly on behavior.
Basically the WHY we do what we do.
Another difference from other assessments, is that the Enneagram looks at BOTH strengths and blindspots providing opportunities for personal growth in a host of areas.
I’ve spent the past few years studying the many layers of the Enneagram, looking at clutter patterns and connecting the dots between peoples relationship with clutter and their Enneagram type.
This series looks at 9 people each with different enneagram numbers. We talk about what makes their enneagram type unique, how they learned about the enneagram, and their personal relationship with clutter and organization as it relates to the Enneagram.
To kick off this series, I am joined by Enneagram 1 (also known as the Perfectionist), Maliquea Starnes.
During our conversation we talked about:
⦁ The Inner Critic of Ones
⦁ The role of Emotional Clutter in her life
⦁ Why clutter and organization can be both a struggle and strength for Type Ones
Maliquea shares her words of wisdom for our fellow Enneagram Ones (or people who are married to, or parent Ones) to better understand them.
After listening, I’d love to hear your thoughts in our facebook group, This ORGANIZED Life Podcast. Make sure to tune in next week to hear my conversation with Enneagram 2, Ashton Whitmoyer-Ober.
