If you've been around Grace Church for awhile, you know we're into the Enneagram. The Enneagram is an ancient personality typing system that helps people understand who they are.  It teaches that there are nine different personality styles in the world, and we all gravitate toward and adopt one in childhood to cope and feel safe. Each number has a unique way of seeing the world and an underlying motivation that influences how that type thinks, feels, and behaves.  All nine numbers are like tools in a toolbox; everyone has all the tools, but they pull on one tool more than others. The Enneagram also explores health and unhealth in numbers. In health, you are using your tool correctly. In unhealth, you’re intentionally or unintentionally using the tool to harm yourself or someone else.

Maron, Barry, and Tyler dive into the Enneagram with David Bell. In Enneagram Part 1, they explore personality styles Two (29:05), Three (35:10), Four (41:04), Five (48:46), and Six (52:54). They also explain some Enneagram language, like wings (29:30), stressed & secure numbers (37:10), and unhealth (38:58). 

In Part 2, they dive into the next four numbers of the Enneagram with David Bell. They explore numbers Seven (0:43), Eight (9:30), Nine (15:30), and One (19:04).
