This episode is perfect for anybody who is looking to understand more about themselves and how their past experience may have influenced their present day behaviors, behavior change, and using the Enneagram as a personality model.

In this episode, we discuss:

  • How to be productive while also staying closer to your whole self.
  • How your childhood experiences influence your adult desires and behavior patterns.
  • The cultural norm to stop at naming and identifying patterns and the importance of the practice and work that needs to occur afterwards in order to create change.
  • The 3-step process of behavior change and shifting patterns.
  • The 20 second theory related to behavior change.
  • The small changes you can focus on to create behavior change.
  • The first steps to take if you’ve never heard of the Enneagram before.
  • The importance of recognizing the difference between external influences and internal beliefs and motivations.
  • The importance of nuance in understanding the complexity of human behavior and personality.
  • The difference between the 3 subtypes in the Enneagram.
  • How a disruption to your basic human needs (such as trauma) informs your personality and behavioral patterns.
  • The connection between developmental stages, a lack of real or perceived resources, and how you relate to the world as an adult.
  • What your dominant instinct is and how you can heal from unhelpful instincts or tendencies.
  • How your tendency can result in both strengths and challenges, and how to work with them to improve upon your strengths.
