How to read Galloblog by Enneagram type

The enneagram – a personality classification scheme that divides people by their basic fears and motivations – has taken the world by storm. People are obsessed. There are posts about which songs you should listen to , which bible character you are (lolz!), how your house looks, which type of person you should choose to be your partner, which type of job suits you best … all according to your enneagram type!

Wowsers! Is it legit? Is it a bunch of psychological mumbo jumbo? Does it have ties to satanic cults? Who cares! Never one to have a strong voice on controversial topics*, C Gallo is here to exploit the obsession with the enneagram for her own needs.** So for all of your extreme pleasure and to fuel the craze, please see my below recommendations of Galloblog posts according to each enneagram type! Note: I based all of this according the brief summaries of each type provided by the enneagram institute.

Type 1: The Reformer

  • Basic Fear: Of being corrupt/evil, defective
  • Basic Desire: To be good, to have integrity, to be balanced
  • Galloblog post must-read: The good of guilt
If you’re super afraid of being evil, you probs strug with guilt I’d wager!

Type 2: The Helper

Free yourself from too much people pleasing!

Type 3: The Achiever

Don’t let yourself get so focused on accomplishing that you forget to stop and smell the blog posts!

Type 4: The Individualist

  • Basic Fear: That they have no identity or personal significance
  • Basic Desire: To find themselves and their significance (to create an
       identity)
  • Galloblog post must-read: How to be a snowflake, for realz
Follow my simple tips and you really will be an extremely unique individual!

Type 5: The Investigator

You can stop over-analyzing and treat yoself to some daisy-laying!

Type 6: The Loyalist

Be currful the people who are giving you support aren’t just riding high off of your lows!

Type 7: The Enthusiast

  • Basic Fear: Of being deprived and in pain
  • Basic Desire: To be satisfied and content—to have their needs fulfilled
  • Galloblog post must-read: In search of chill
You may need to take it down a notch

Type 8: The Challenger

  • Basic Fear: Of being harmed or controlled by others
  • Basic Desire: To protect themselves (to be in control of their own life
    and destiny)
  • Galloblog post must-read: Pity the fool
Making yourself vulnerable can be a position of strength!

Type 9: The Peacemaker

Hint: this is a sarcastic post. Read if your fear of loss and separation has been turning you into a Dwelling Dwayne!

What’s that you ask, what if you are a Type 7 with a 1 wing? Hmmmm better read all of my posts just to be safe! 😉
