Besides the 9 core Types, the #Enneagram also distinguishes 3 core Instincts (Self-Preservation, Sexual, Social) that further color our #personality combos.

And much like understanding Type (e.g. when hiring, negotiating, partnering with others, etc.), it’s worth learning what each Instinct will prioritize as well, to avoid confusion and disappointment.

For example

–Social (‘SO’) Types will typically make excellent managers.


–Sexual (or ‘One-on-One’) Types (‘SX’) will typically make excellent creators/creatives.

Both are fab, the invitation (as always) is just that you know

–who you are


–who you are dealing with (hiring, doing business with, etc.)

What’s your Dominant Instinct of the three (SP, SX, SO)? Do you know?
