Hey everyone! 👋 I'm curious about how different Enneagram types approach their careers and work. How do you find fulfillment, and which types of environments or tasks help you thrive? For instance, I'm a Type 4 and often find that creative freedom and self-expression are crucial for my job satisfaction. I'm interested in hearing about other types: what motivates you, what challenges you face, and any strategies you've found helpful. Do you think certain careers suit specific types better? Any Type 5s satisfied in creative roles, or Type 8s happy in support positions? Excited to hear your experiences and advice! 😊 Thanks in advance!
