Overview of Enneagram Nine


Type Nine is approachable, reassuring, complacent, and resigned. We are drawn to Type 9s because they have a hospitable disposition due to their ability to see the world from everyone’s perspective. They have the desire to have inner stability and “peace of mind.”


With a Type 9, what you see is what you get. They don’t bring hidden agendas or secret motives to relationships. They are loyal friends for life, but they are unassuming in relationships so they need others to initiate connecting.


Type 9s have a strong desire to avoid conflict. This desire can cause them to set aside their personal opinions to get along with others. In instances where they aren’t willing to change their mind, Type 9s are silently stubborn and passive aggressive so that they don’t have to directly engage in conflict.
