Enneagram Type 9: Harmony and Behavioral Accommodation

Enneagram type 9

Enneagram type 9 has a core focus on being in harmony with the world and others by way of accommodating behavior.

Self-Concern: “I am not harmonious as I am.”

Compensation: "I must accommodate others agenda and opinions in order to feel at ease when with them."

Core Assumption: Harmony comes from getting along with others and falling into comfortable routines. This requires that I accommodate others by finding common ground and minimizing my own agenda when around others as well as finding comfort and peace of mind for myself.

Focus of Attention is on finding the common ground between people and smoothing over conflict.
