Those who can laugh at themselves will never cease to be amused.
One of my values is joy. I use the Enneagram every day to help my clients and audiences solve conflict, cultivate communication, and create empowered teams. It’s deep and meaningful work.
Although the work I do is deep and serious, I don’t have to take myself seriously. It helps to laugh at ourselves once in a while!
If you’re saying Ennea-what? The Enneagram is a personality framework that shows us why we feel, think, and act the way we do. Go grab my primer on understanding the Enneagram, “Why Do I Keep Doing This?” for free for all the types and their core motivations.
So take these with a pillar of salt and laugh for a bit.
Motivated by protection and desire to avoid being controlled.
Motivated to stay connected and avoid conflict.
Motivated to be good and make things right.
Motivated to help others to avoid rejection.
Motivated to achieve and have success
Motivated to emotionally connect and be authentic to themselves
Motivated to be competent and manage their energy
Motivated to be prepared to avoid blame and abandonment
Motivated to avoid pain and discomfort and afraid of missing out.
Every week I offer a new set of Friday funnies over on Instagram. I love it when people share their favorites with me! I’ll tag you if I use it!
