Do you expect others to be honest or do you expect them to be harmonious? Find out what qualities you expect based on your Enneagram type!
What qualities are important to you that you want people to have. What do you naturally expect others to bring to the table because it is naturally a part of your personality?
We all have certain qualities that we admire more than others. And while some, if not all, are desirable we place greater value in the qualities that we either naturally have or the qualities that we naturally desire.
The enneagram is a personality typing tool that is based on our core motivation. It is that core motivation that is the “why” behind everything that we do.
Unsurprisingly, the qualities that we value reflect that core motivation. Thus we find that each of the nine enneagram types have different qualities that they value more and wish that people would bring to the table.
How Do I Find My Enneagram Type?
Unlike most personality typing systems, it’s not quite as simple as taking a test and getting an accurate result. You can definitely take an enneagram test but I don’t recommend only relying on the test’s answers.
Enneagram tests rely mainly on testing your traits which is helpful but traits are not what determines your enneagram type. Your core motivation is what determines your enneagram type.
