Enneagram4 Christmas Gifts

Enneagram Four (4) Overview

Enneagram 4’s are empathetic, supportive, creative, and passionate. The Enneagram Institute goes on to say that at their best they are inspired, highly creative, able to renew themselves, and transform their experiences.

While those leading with Enneagram 4 can often feel misunderstood, or labeled as “moody,” we really just believe the Enneagram 4’s are the sacred holders of all the feelings.  When I think of Enneagram 4’s, I think of people who are able to take all the random leftovers in a fridge (a modpodge of feelings) and turn them into a fine dining experience through art, words, music, and film. This past spring, I traveled with an Enneagram 4 to the Dominican Republic, and I watched her connect with and see people in a way that transcended culture and language. In the presence of a Enneagram 4, meaning, admiration, creativity, and sensitivity are so richly present.
