We all learn to cope with things in life as children, then ‘fall into’ our #Enneagram Type and become ‘experts’ of relying on one key defense mechanism in particular.

Here’s a cheat sheet to the different #Enneagram Types’ defense mechanisms:

–T8: denial

–T9: narcotization

–T1: reaction formation

–T2: repression

–T3: identification

–T4: introjection

–T5: isolation

–T6: projection

–T7: rationalization

We all do all but our #personalities have their ‘favorite’ go to defenses that we tend to ‘overuse’, depending on our #Enneagram Types.

Do you know all of them? Do you use all? Do you overuse any?
