I’ve recently rediscovered enneagram personality stuff. I’m a 5w6 and I’m rather taken by how healthy growth is described for that type. It’s basically saying you need to get out of your head and engage the world.

I’m so surprised by this, because that’s basically what I’ve been doing to grow this past year. Working out, talking to friends, going to events, volunteering, stuff like this. Alternatives to just ruminating.

5’s and 5w6’s in particular are natural problem solvers. Which makes me think we are uniquely capable of overcoming our own weaknesses compared to the other types. Because overcoming problems is literally our nature.
