ENNEAGRAM: TYPE NINE

The Peacemaker, Mediator

The Nine’s core unconscious belief is that everyone is not accepted unconditionally and to be accepted one must go with the flow. They like/need comfort (whatever that means to them) unconsciously to feel love and acceptance. They are warm, friendly and receptive and can see all sides. They may be indecisive about personal decisions but are good peacemakers and mediators for others. Nines have trouble with inertia (or momentum). Whether they are slow in the traditional sense or hard workers continually on the move, Nines have a basic problem with priorities. It's hard to change directions or shift attention to what is most important. They can substitute inessential priorities for what needs to get done. Nines can forget themselves and merge with others’ needs, go along to get along (avoiding conflict), and can be inattentive to their own needs and priorities (described as laziness, or going to sleep to their own needs). Though they may know their opinion, they have trouble expressing themselves or saying no. Saying no can feel like a conflict to a Nine. They will often do what feels easiest or most comfortable or say they don’t care. They can deny that they have anger, not recognizing it, instead expressing it as quiet stubbornness, withdrawing, or an eventual blow-up.
