Little Women is full of amazing quotes! Below you’ll see which quote fits with your enneagram type in these Little Women quotes by Enneagram types.
I, as a rule, do not type fictional characters. I know it’s a fun thing to do and I’ll admit I do it internally but I won’t create a post telling people what enneagram type Jo March was. Why? Because fictional characters are an amalgam of the author (or screen writers/producers) imagination.
That said, I will do quotes by enneagram types. Quotes are just a snippet of the person who said it but that snippet can be a decent glimpse of what a particular enneagram type might believe or agree with.
This does not mean that if Amy March says what I think is a type 4 quotes that she is a type 4. It just means that the quote seems 4ish.
Now that I’ve got all my disclosures over with, on to the fun stuff! All of these quotes are from the Little Women book (not movie, although many can be found in the movies as well).
