Are you obsessed with all things Enneagram?! 

I was recently asked to complete the Enneagram personality test, and the results surprised me. 

Truth? I’ve done the Enneagram a few times over the years.

In 2012, I was a “6,” a worrier and caretaker. Friends in the know said, “Oh, that’s so YOU.”

I thought I had to take care of many things and a lot of people to the exclusion of what I wanted and who I was, deep down.

Fast forward to today.

My results are NOT the same.

My most recent test showed me as a “4,” a creative type.

What happened?!?

Die-hard Enneagrammers might say a test is a test. Your results can’t change.

But, we are always changing. Why limit ourselves to a test result from years ago?

We change. We grow.

Today, I’m more confident putting my needs and quirks forward.

It turns out I’m less of a nurturer than I am an inspiration seeker. I love being in the mystery of creativity.

That’s not to say that I don’t still nurture. Obviously, that’s a big part of my job with clients, as I help them create their best book and bring it into the world.

But, these days, I’m also interested in the creative challenges and breakthroughs that clients have. 

After all, writing a book is one big creative process.

The recent Enneagram’s insight affects how I communicate with others and what I bring to the table as a business owner and book doctor.

It has been powerful to see my own creative drive reflected in the results of the test.

I also love to learn what other people’s numbers are. 

What’s your Enneagram type, and what do you think it gets right about you?

How does it get your book writing self right?

Life requires different things from us at different times.

Book ideas have a limited life span. They come in with full force. They hang around, nudging you into action for a while. But at some point, they will also go.

So — don’t wait too long to jump on your book idea.

We change. That’s a part of being human and being alive. Change is also built into the creative process.

So, if you’ve got a book idea that’s knocking on your door — pay attention! That book wants to see the light of day now.
