    05/11/2019 Duración: 25min

    We talk about Enneagram Type 9 - The Peacemaker; their strengths, weaknesses, and comparison to Bible characters. Enneagram Type 9 Nines are accepting, trusting, and stable.

Basic Fear: Of loss and separation Basic Desire: To have inner stability "peace of mind" Key Motivations: Want to create harmony in their environment, to avoid conflicts and tension, to preserve things as they are, to resist whatever would upset or disturb them.
