And the crowd goes wild, that THREE has done it again! They scored the game winning goal, delivered a powerful keynote speech, became the first woman ever in space, what can’t they achieve?!
Sound like someone you know? The pressure is on for our dear Three friends! They are all too familiar with achievement and all too familiar with being misunderstood. So, let’s dive in, shall we?
If you’re just tuning in, here’s the scoop: Each week at Wellness & Co. Amanda & Dylan will be hosting a panel for the Enneagram types, we’ve already wrapped up four types, phew (PS – if you cannot attend the panel live, you can still register and watch the webinar later on your own time)! You can register to watch the panels here – sign up for one or for all nine!
THIS WEEK – TYPE THREE!
This style of learning and exploring the Enneagram is bound to give you new insights, new context to the nine types, and new pathways for growth from Type Structure to True Self!
So, in that spirit – in honor of our panel series we’ll be sharing some thoughts from YOU.
We’ve compiled reflections from all over to shed some light on our dear friends, Type Three. Particularly, what’s it like being married to a Type Three and what it’s like being a Type Three Mama!
Threes are powerful people. They care so deeply about being seen and known and have been rewarded most of their life for their impact and accomplishments. So, naturally, they are high-achieving, image conscious, sensitive, and emotionally guarded. They can also be apathetic, supportive, introverted OR extroverted. Threes are uncanny at shifting to be whatever is needed from others in the moment. So, have you ever wonder how they size up in the loveeeee department?
Thank you to everyone who shared what it is like being partnered with a Type Three! Your words and insights are helping us continue to honor and understand the strengths and challenges of partnerships with the Enneagram Type Three!
Last but not least, Three’s are kicka** parents! They are go getters – keeping their children in all the activities, volunteering to do all the things, and putting their best foot forward the whole time. They are energetic and encouraging. Buttttt… due to this constant go-getter mentality their children can often experience the brunt of the burnout, especially when they are tired, feeling unappreciated, or unseen. Threes can simultaneously celebrate their children and diminish their emotional landscape. When focused on self-growth, Threes can be a model parent, offering up a beautiful example of how we can make the most of our parenting experience and be deeply connected to our children.
Curious to know what it’s like being a Type Three? Tune in August 4th at 6pm when we explore the life and experiences of three Threes – ha!
