Enneagram: A reflection of your personality
Enneagram is a tool that helps you identify your personality type and understand how you emotionally connect to the world outside of you. This personality typing system reiterates that there are nine kinds of people in the entire world. And that they run the world. It is imperative to understand the enneagram kinds if you want to improve your social interactions and personal advancement.
It is also helpful to note that these nine types of personalities are not divided into a hierarchy. So, no one kind is better or more emotionally accomplished than others. The Enneagram personality type that you fall in can be discovered through some self-awareness and taking various tests.
Let's look at the individual personality type and the benefits your emotional attributes can bring to your money matters.
Type 1: Moral-Perfectionist: These are the people with a solid moral standing, along with a compulsive need to correct themselves to reach their perfect versions. They are very detail-oriented and even find themselves correcting others around them and pushing them to strive for perfection.
These people are the ones who plan out their spendings very well and are often very economically sound. People with Type 1 personalities are the ones who are rarely in debt and also have a knack for efficient budgeting. The financial problem that these people face is that they are critically evaluating their expenses all the time. This kind of rigidity towards their costs could make them weak investors, and hence they might never take the plunge.
Type 2: Supportive- Advisors: These people have attributes of love, care, and support for all people around them. They find themselves prioritizing others' needs before themselves and are available generously to become part of other people's lives to win appreciation.
These types of people are prone to overspending. The traits of serving others and wishing to stay in everyone's good books can lead these people to spend more than their pocket allows. Due to this, they often find themselves struggling to prioritize their spendings. This constant need to overspend to keep others happy could lead them to be in debt for good.
Type 3: Successful- Achievers: This kind has a very close relationship with success. They either want to achieve valuable things in their life or need to at least appear very successful. These people are quite fearful of failures, always making sure they make the right move.
People with Type 3 personalities have a higher chance of leading a life where financial stability is not a problem. This is because of the high levels of productivity at which they function. The downside of their traits is that they use money as a projection of their achievements. They are materialistically too invested and find themselves expanding on tons of luxury goods that could lead their hard-earned money in the wrong direction.
Type 4: Romantic- Individualists: These are the people with a compulsive need to be unique. They consider themselves superior and strive to achieve things in their lives that could help set them apart from others around them. These are the people who have a powerful creative impulse; this restricts their ability to look at money as an essential part of their lives.
Type 4 personality people rarely spend time designing their budget, paying a lot of attention to planning it in detail. They are often doing this financial planning in imaginary spaces and seldom find themselves executing them. The result is that they are poor judges of their financial status and future.
Type 5: Investigative- Thinkers: These are the people with a powerful urge to understand the world they are living in. They are analytically and critically sound because of the amount of information they gather and process.
These are the kind of people who have very constructive plans for their economic standing and their future, but they never really execute any of those plans. These are also the people who have a top-notch understanding of businesses and investments because of their researching skills, but they are somewhat fearful of taking that leap of faith themselves. Type 6 people might never put their money to productive use.
Type 6: Loyal- Guardians: Type 6 are the kind who are skeptical of their surroundings and usually find themselves being wary of the world they live in. Due to this behavior, they are also significantly responsible for every action they take.
Type 6 people are adherent to traditional roles and firmly believe that they cannot make financial decisions themselves. These are the people who will seek help from financial analysts and agencies in helping with their money matters. Type 6 people are also more likely to fall prey to fraudulent schemes.
Type 7: Entertaining- Optimist: This kind is the one that finds a speck of goodness in every scenario. These people are fun and optimistic about their situations and their surroundings.
Type 7 people have a strong impulse to spend, and this impulse is usually never subdued by their consciousness. They have a strong belief that all shall be well in the end; hence these are the ones who are most prone to finding themselves in debt too. They find it hard to remain within a designated budget because of their energetic approach to life.
Type 8: Protective- Challenger: These are the people who have an overwhelming personality and have rather bossy attributes. They connect with people by challenging them.
Due to strong-headedness, this personality type can take all decisions about their finances on their own. They have robust decision-making power and don't pay much heed to others' advice, especially in money matters. This habit of staying away from professional advisors can sometimes land you in financial trouble.
Type 9: Peaceful- Mediators: These are the only ones at ease in the most delicate situations. Their lives revolve around avoiding conflicts and problems where they are met with fears.
These are the people who find the most challenging time budgeting. They also find themselves running away from financial realities. It is tough for them to face reality. Avoidance becomes their strategy, leading them to big money troubles that they never thought about earlier.
Each personality type has its way of dealing with their lives and their finances. Getting to know your personality and behavior traits could give you an edge over your financial burdens and quickly make the right decisions.
