    I recently discovered my enneagram type is most likely sexual 1 that moves to stress 4 and a growth 7. In high school around 2007 my best girl friends all dressed up as the seven deadly sins, and I chose wrath! Ironically or not the passion for E1 is anger. I’ve typed my partner as a E9. He has stated before that I’m often “not impressed with society” and often thinks I’m angry at him. He is caught up in friend and work drama daily as he emotionally negotiates between members of the group, and doesn’t have energy left for his own life, or my dramatic notions. I often sound a lot like a 4, but I have always had an underlying motivation and obsession about being “good”, especially when it comes to the planet and saving the earth. I think not knowing what my mission is or how to help and apply myself to society, contributes to my sort of depression 4 position. I’m like a Bob Dylan(4), trying to be an Elton John(7), who should be a Greta Thunberg(1). I effectively put my energy into physical exercise, to help quell my festering energy, into circus aerial silks or hiking or crossfit. I definitely fantasize about my destiny- a mission to help the greater good, superhero style. I make crystal wands and staves to try and through each try to teach finding personal power and self sovereignty. My degree is in Landscape Architecture(God complex much) although I’ve not been able to break into the professional world. I’m passionate about pollinators and gardening with native plants. I’m kinda obsessed with being the trash queen- going on pickup walks or hauling recycling for others with my truck. I’m trying to break out of the capitalism machine but don’t know how- financially I have little interest in making money and value my freedom.
