EnneaTalk Tuesday 101: Triads

It’s that time again–Enneatalk Tuesday 101 is back and this time were going over the three different umbrellas, or triads, that the initial nine types fall under—the head, the body, and the heart. I identify the characteristics of each triad and discuss the importance of having the correct type in order to navigate towards the growth, love, and success we all seek with the help of the Enneagram. 

Listen to this week’s episode to see how you can use the three triads to see if you are typed correctly, and discover what each one means in relation to our core behaviors. 

The roadmap back to your soul

The Enneagram is a powerful tool. When you want to go on a road trip or are heading to a destination, you need to know the coordinates to get there so you can arrive as safe and fast as possible. The Enneagram is no different. When you have the right type, it allows you to grow and reach your goals, while having the wrong type can lead you on a winding lost path that can hurt, waste time, and leave you frustrated.

The three triads and finding your type

I use this episode to explain what the head, body, and head triads mean and how you can not only identify each one but use them to help find if you’re typed correctly. If you have been struggling and going back and forth trying to use this tool but keep finding yourself complacent and stuck in a rut, it’s time to take the guesswork out of it: Reach out to me, DM me, schedule a typing session. 

Take control and schedule a typing session 

I want you to know where you are going, to have clarity, and have the right set roadmap to find the right coordinates of your soul. Why? Because mastering self-awareness is a super power and the first step to Becoming Bulletproof.
