Enneagram Type 1 Explained
Enneagram Type 1 is sometimes called “The Reformer” or “The Perfectionist.”
This is a body-based type in the Anger Triad.
Each of the three types in the anger or body-based triad is going to be structured or shaped by their relationship to anger in some way.
Enneagram 1 Types are rational, idealistic, and automatically seeking how things can be made more perfect. They measure whatever they see against an ideal or a standard of perfection… something they think is a “higher good.”
Ennegram 1’s tend to be principled, ethical, self-controlled and perfectionistic. Not all type one’s are perfectionistic, but they tend to be very focused on making things better.
Basic Strategy of Type 1
The basic strategy of Enneagram Type 1 is to be good, virtuous, have integrity, and do the right thing. They are very hardworking, meticulous, detailed oriented, responsible, moral and have a very sincere desire to make things better.
Enneagram 1 Types avoid being or doing the wrong thing, making mistakes, or getting criticized.
Key Challenges of The Type
Enneagram Type 1 challenges include relaxing the need to be right and relaxing the need to work so hard to make things perfect.
It’s important for Type 1 to realize that things are essentially imperfect in the human world and that they need to make room for fun, lightheartedness, relaxation, and having a good time.
