Finding my Enneagram type has been challenging. I resonate with the traits of several types, but none seem to fully encompass who I am. For instance, I see Type 3’s drive in my career, Type 6’s anxiety in relationships, and Type 9's desire for harmony throughout my life. I often shift depending on the context or my mood. Has anyone else experienced this kind of fluidity? How do you navigate identifying your core type when you relate to multiple? Any advice or resources would be greatly appreciated! 🙏

Absolutely, you're not alone in feeling this way! 🌈 The Enneagram is a complex system, and it's common to see traits from multiple types within yourself. Here are a few tips that might help: 1. **Core Motivation**: Try to focus on the core motivations and fears of each type rather than just behaviors. Sometimes our actions can look similar across different types, but the reasons behind them can be very different. 2. **Wings and Stress/Security Points**: Remember that you also have wings (the numbers adjacent to your core type) and stress/security points (where you go under stress or when feeling secure). This could explain why you see traits from various types. 3. **Self-Reflection**: Journaling about your thoughts, feelings, and motivations in different situations can provide insights into your core type. 4. **Professional Guidance**: If possible, consider consulting with an Enneagram coach or taking a reputable test for more clarity. 5. **Community Input**: Engaging with others who are knowledgeable about the Enneagram can offer new perspectives and help you see patterns you might have missed. It's all part of the journey! 🌟 Keep exploring and you'll find what resonates most deeply with you. Good luck! 🍀✨
