Faces of the Enneagram Type 8 | Carmean

Our Faces of the Enneagram series highlights the person we imagine when we are shopping for a specific Enneagram Type, and today we are exploring gifts for an Enneagram Type 8. Today, we are introducing our friend Carmean who we met in ourZoom  Enneagram Conversations series. Carmean leads with a type 8, and we’ve loved getting to know her digitally over the last few months.

Carmean’s friends would describe her as talkative, caring, thoughtful, knowledgeable, due diligent, and efficient. She is a leader with excellent delegation and organizational skills, and has no problem being direct and/or mean when it’s necessary, but also very protective.

She was introduced to the Enneagram just over 2 years ago at a school event for her son. With a free day, he’s exactly who she’d spend the day with. We’d love to introduce you to our newest friend, and all her favorite things.  

Scentbird Subscription

Carmean's Favorite

Scentbird it is a perfume of the month club. You pick from hundreds of scents and each month you get the scent of choice. I like this because I get bored with the same old scents and they provide just enough perfume for a reasonable price. With the way my queue is set up it is always something new

Renew Lotion

Carmean's Favorite
Beauty Item

Favorite would be my Renew lotion from Melaleuca. It is a dry skin, eczema dream. Keeps the moisturized but not greasy and heavy. That would be it because I don’t wear makeup.

Code of the Extraordinary Mind

Carmean's Favorite

Ortio encourages visual-spatial skills, pattern-recognition skills, logic, critical thinking, problem-solving A powerful test of strategy and trickery!


Carmean's Favorite

Whiskey + Oak candle appeals to many of the senses- sight, sound, and smell- and is practical for setting the atmosphere. Can be perceived as a sweeter, cozy scent if you want to relax with a glass of wine. Also can set the room up for guests to feel welcomed and engerized!


Carmean's Favorite

My Aeropex Aftershokz headphones. They do everything I need comfortable all day. But they are open ear so I don’t have to take them off when I drive.

But God T-Shirt

Carmean's Favorite

I like graphic t-shirts that have positive strong messages on them. For instance I have to that say “But God” and behind it has all the things people worry and stress about. 

We love getting to know Carmean, and love seeing, knowing, and appreciating exactly who she is.  She is just one of the Faces of the Enneagram we imagine when we are shopping for gifts for an Enneagram Type 8. Tell us about the Enneagram 8’s in your life! We’d love to know him or her!
