Our Varied Enneagram Responses To Being An Ally For POC Is Important To Examine

I’ve written a lot about The Enneagram.

Type 1 — The Reformer

“Is this the right thing to do? Is posting really going to bring about constructive change? Is it wrong because it kinda seems like I’m bragging?”

Type 2 — The Helper

“Is what I’m posting helping POC? Is this statement going to please all of my change-seeking friends?”

Type 3 — The Achiever/Performer

“Is my allyship too performative?”

Type 4 — The Individualist

“Does this statement truly embody how I feel? Is it authentic? Does it matter what I feel right now?”

Type 5 — The Investigator

“Am I allowing my emotions in enough right now? Is this post too factual?”

Type 6 — The Loyalist

“Is this expressing my desire to be a part of something greater well enough? Am I helping hold the world together with this thought?”

Type 7 — The Enthusiast

“Does this statement hold the weight of our current situation heavily enough? Am I being too positive?”

Type 8 — The Challenger

“Is this statement too aggressive? Am I posting too much?”

Type 9 — The Peacemaker

“Am I being proactive enough? Am I trying to unify people too much right now?”

Continue to occupy the lane you started going down years ago. Seek new ones. Keep going.
