One Size Doesn't Fit All

The phrase "one size fits all" is generally applied to what people wear that says the particular article fits a wide range of sizes if not everyone (e.g., watches, baseball caps, belts, etc.). There is something I noticed with the Enneagram types where people try to fit themselves or others into every possible category or concept of the types. The underlying assumption is that the categories or concepts cover the full range of possibilities and completely describe the underlying experience they're attempting to. In other words, everyone can be fit into a type or related concept.
