I admit it! I am obsessed with all that is Enneagrams! I love learning about myself—personality or behavior—in ways I had not thought, along with the other different types of unique personalities that bring great things to this world.
My boyfriend and I love to send each other posts that we find online or on Instagram of our Enneagram numbers. This has helped our relationship because we are learning and discovering why each other responds and acts a certain way. Also, this info teaches us both what the other person needs and how to propel each other to make us both better.
If you have no clue what in the world I am talking about, the Enneagram refers to the nine different types or styles, with each representing a worldview and archetype that resonates with the way people think, feel, and act in relation to the world, others, and themselves.
Since I believe in the power of the Enneagram, I thought it would be fun to write about the different types of brides relating to each Enneagram type.
