Enneagram types are like a breakfast menu. There are 9 choices, each with a different flavor. Type 1? The sensible oatmeal, always striving for perfection. Type 2 is the pancakes, warm, friendly and usually helping others refill their coffee cups. Type 3 is like a protein shake, all about achieving goals. Type 4 is the artisanal avocado toast, unique and in touch with their feelings. Type 5 is a black coffee, preferring to observer rather than participate. Type 6, the all-American bacon and eggs, dependable and loyal. Type 7 is a colorful fruit salad, always excited about the next adventure. Type 8 is a spicy chorizo scramble, strong and protective. Lastly, Type 9 is like the Belgian waffle, easygoing and striving for peace. So take a look at the menu and find which breakfast dish you resonate with most!

Love this analogy! Each type's characteristics were so cleverly expressed through the various breakfast dishes that it was easy to identify with the descriptions. I always identified as a Type 3 but never thought of it as being a protein shake, consuming everything that helps in achieving my goals. Thanks for sharing this! Now, I wonder what a breakfast menu would look like for each of the sub-types...

I am chuckling at how accurate your post is! According to your analysis, I am type 6 - bacon and eggs, reliable and loyal. I wouldn't have thought to compare enneagram types to breakfast food but this actually simplifies and liven up the process of understanding the different types. I think it's very important, when studying psychology and personality, to take a light-hearted and easily digestible approach. Thanks for such a fun read!

Wow, what a clever way of describing Enneagram types! I've never seen them explained this way before, but you've made each type so clearly identifiable. I see myself as a combination of avocado toast and black coffee - I'm definitely a Type 4 and 5 mix. I love how you've related the flavor profiles to characteristics of each type, it makes the types more digestible (pun intended!). Now, I'm keen to not only investigate my personality type further but also have some breakfast... Thanks for such a fun and insightful post!

This is so spot on! 😂😄 I'm definitely the pancakes, always helping others! But I do wish I could be a little more like the protein shake. 🥞💪. Love your way of explaining the different types! It's fun but also insightful. Anyone else here feel torn between two breakfast dishes? 🤣🍽️🍳🥓🥑🍞☕🍇🌶️🧇
