Hey guys! Today I’m back with a post that I’m super excited for! I reached out to Ainsley from her blog, Ainsley Beth. Ainsley is the sweetest and I love her blog! She has super relatable posts and her aesthetic is EVERYTHING.
Anyways, a while back while scrolling Pinterest, I seen that Ainsley had pinned some enneagram 9 pins and after looking at her boards I found out that she’s an enneagram 9, just like me! I reached out to her through her website and asked her if she would be interested in doing a enneagram 9 assumptions post with me and she agreed! Well, the day is here for our posts to go up and I’m so excited! You can check out Ainsley’s post here.
Anyways, if you dont know what an enneagram is, here’s a quick explanation!
From one point of view, the Enneagram can be seen as a set of nine distinct personality types, with each number on the Enneagram denoting one type. It is common to find a little of yourself in all nine of the types, although one of them should stand out as being closest to yourself. This is your basic personality type.
Type One is principled, purposeful, self-controlled, and perfectionistic.
Type Two is generous, demonstrative, people-pleasing, and possessive.
Type Three is adaptable, excelling, driven, and image-conscious.
Type Four is expressive, dramatic, self-absorbed, and temperamental.
Type Five is perceptive, innovative, secretive, and isolated.
Type Six is engaging, responsible, anxious, and suspicious.
Type Seven is spontaneous, versatile, acquisitive, and scattered.
Type Eight is self-confident, decisive, willful, and confrontational.
Type Nine is receptive, reassuring, complacent, and resigned.

So, Ainsley and I are both type 9’s. We both exchanged some assumptions/questions that are generally true about type 9’s and we wanted to see how accurate or how much we relate to the assumptions! Here are the ones Ainsley sent me:
You’re a very genuine person
Ok, so for this one, my answer is: I try to be! Sometime it can be really hard to be completely yourself and I’m also pretty shy and self conscious but I try my best. I hope I’m considered sincere, I would say for the I am and I hope my friends would say the same.
You like naps/sleeping
Ok. YES. Who doesn’t like sleeping 😂 I have to say, I don’t really enjoy naps though. I can never fall asleep during the middle of the day unless we’re on a really long car ride coming back from a weekend of camping. Then I will nap 😉 But usually naps just aren’t my thing. But sleeping is FANTASTIC. I hate waking up in the morning and everyday I wish I could sleep in more than I do haha!
You keep your opinions to yourself
For the most part I do, especially if I don’t know you very well. But if we’re close and I’m comfortable telling you my opinions and I don’t feel like you’ll judge me, I’ll let you know what I think 😉
Yes! I love being creative! Art is one of my favorites and I love creating things! Sometimes it’s hard to be creative and original but I adore painting, drawing, journaling, pen-paling and just creating things to make the world a better and more beautiful place. Ok, I’ll admit that sounds cheesy but it’s true ✌🏻
You love long talks
YES YES YES. A thousand times yes! Long talks are the best, especially if they’re with someone I love and am really comfortable around! Long night time talks at sleepovers are 10/10 the best.
And that’s that! I feel like I can relate to most of these, which is really cool! I think enneagrams are so neat because it’s so cool to be able to look at your “type” and relate to it and see how it might affect how you think, make decisions and etc.!
I hope you enjoyed this post, lemme know what you think in the comments! I’d love to chat 🙂
Also, thank you so much Ainsley for doing this with me! It was a ton of fun and I really enjoyed it 🙂 ❤
Have you ever took the enneagram test? What enneagram type are you? Can you relate to any of these assumptions? How’s your week going? Happy October!
