Series: The Enneagram Letters
To my Enneagram Five friends
I love your heart. You find such beauty and safety in thoughts and understanding. You have a great desire to know and gather information, like a little child in awe, curious and delighting in this fairytale world. To get to know a type five is to get to know their passion points, whether it is the world of medicine, the history of the Civil War, philosophy or any other fascinating area of study and interaction. You teach the world the value of solitude and silence. You have made an art out of how to truly be by yourself and enjoy autonomy and independence. Your honesty and forthrightness is refreshing if sometimes bluntly challenging to those in your world. Thank you for your deliberate intentionality in answering questions to the fullest extent of your ability. Even if it takes you a few days to do some research or internal processing, it is worth waiting to receive the treasure trove you have gathered.
