The Enneagram is different than most tests that describe your personality. Unlike Meyers Briggs, StrengthFinders, or that alike, the Enneagram does not require a test. Instead, through reading about your health and stress tendencies, your childhood wounds, your deepest longings, and your biggest sins, you must self-diagnose your own enneagram type. There is no one number that is best… in all numbers you can find yourself in growing, or failing. There are many women in each type that have used their personality to excel and change the world for the better. They are women who can inspire us and help us realize that there is nothing stopping us from success, whatever that may look like. Read about each number and find powerful women in each one below.
