Enneagram 9 - the Peacemaker

We are drawn to Type 9s because they have a hospitable disposition due to their ability to see the world from everyone’s perspective. At their best, they are patient, accepting, open-minded, empathetic & able to bring people together.

Enneagram 9 - the Peacemaker

The Type Nine structure is comprised of an underlying desire to be at peace, for things to be simple/easy, and for everyone to get along. This desire is coupled with an underlying fear of disruption, conflict, and causing separation with others. Nines' focus of attention is drawn towards others' preferences, wants & opinions in an effort to avoid conflict or tension from potential disagreements. They focus outward & take on others' perspectives to get along, but that results in a neglect of their inner wants, feelings & desires.

Enneagram Nines are naturally preoccupied with:

  • Being sensitive to others' agendas

  • Maintaining comfortable expectations & routines

  • Avoiding conflict & discomfort

  • Going with the flow

If you are trying to discern whether or not you lead with Type Nine, consider if these "I" statements resonate with you from the perspective of an Enneagram Three:

  • I take life as it comes because things are going to happen no matter what you do

  • It seems that others are too critical - I think most things or people have redeemable qualities

  • People might think I'm forgetful, but there are just some things I'd rather not pay attention to

  • People experience me as easy-going & non-critical 

  • Every once in awhile, anger will come out of the blue & I'll explode about something

  • I want everything to be pleasant - I really don't like when people argue or bring up problems

  • I think most things in life just aren't worth getting worked up about, but if it does matter to me, I really dig my heels in

As a Narrative Enneagram Practitioner, I believe that the best way to learn about the 9 Types is to experience them. Learn more about Type Nine in my podcast episodes linked below:
