Welcome to The Fully Lived Life podcast! A podcast for those who are longing to pursue the full life and want to break free from anything that holds them back. Listen in as two friends - a psychologist, Dr. Merry and a life coach, Gillian - talk about life, love and purpose - with wisdom, humour and transparency - through the lens of science, psychology, and life experiences.
Today we respond to requests from many listeners about the Enneagram. Given this time in history we felt that coming at each type and the stress response and then the release response to grow would be beneficial.
Dr. Merry and LIfe Coach Gillian are both certified iEQ9 coaches. We love using the IEQ9 (link below) as a coaching tool for individuals and teams. (Descriptions of motivations below are from the iEQ9 materials).
Type 1 - The Perfectionist
Motivation: This style stems from the motivational need to be good or right. As an Ennea 1, you are likely to value being a good person and as a result self-control, integrity and quality are important to you. You strive for perfection and appreciate standards and structure.
Stress: Type 1’s move to the unhealthy type 4
Growth: Type 1’s should move toward the healthy Type 7
Type 2 - The Helper
Motivation: This style stems from the motivational need to be liked and appreciated. As an Ennea 2, you value relationships and as a result kindness, generosity and self-sacrifice are important to you. You strive to make the world a more loving place, and offer support and attention to those you care about.
Stress: Type 2’s go to the unhealthy 8
Growth: Type 2’s should move toward the healthy 4
Type 3: The Competitive Achiever
Motivation: This style stems from the motivational need to outshine others and be the best. As an Ennea 3, you are likely to value achievement and as a result efficiency, results and image are important to you. You strive for success and you are willing to adapt in order to get what you want.
Stress: Type 3’s go to the unhealthy Type 9
Growth: Type 3’s should move toward the healthy Type 6
Type 4: The Intense Creative
Motivation: This style stems from the motivational need to be unique and authentic. As an Ennea 4, you are likely to value your individualism and as a result feelings, self-expression and purpose are important to you. You are a romantic at heart and appreciate beauty, and creating meaning for yourself and others.
Stress: Type 4 moves to unhealthy Type 2
