We continue our Enneagram ConvoCast series with a beloved member of our community, Jesse! Jesse shares with Tom his motivations, fears, stress, and security as a Type One (the Perfectionist or Reformer). As a member of our YOB community, how does his One-ness manifest in the realms of sexuality, masculinity, and relating with other men?
Jesse discusses his inclination to order and perfection and how that has translated to a need to “clean up” before God, particularly with his sexuality. He shares his love for lists and how he’s only recently begun to prioritize tending to his sexual and gender identity. He talks about his messy stress path into Four as well as his security into Seven, including how he embraces a more spontaneous, adventure-seeking nature with his guy friends — but only for two hours at a time.
Listen to our full Enneagram conversation, and be sure to follow us these next few weeks as we dial around the Enneagram and talk to each type in our community!
