We continue our Enneagram ConvoCast series with another beloved member of our community, Adam! Adam shares with Tom his motivations, fears, stress, and security as a Type Three (the Achiever or Performer). As a member of our YOB community, how does his Three-ness manifest in the realms of sexuality, masculinity, and relating with other men?
Adam makes his YOB podcast debut (or does he??) as he helps us get over the hump of this Enneagram ConvoCast series! As a member of our community he opens up about the need for vulnerability as a Three, along with the core struggle it launches against the impressive persona he strives to present. We ponder the reason why Threes are perhaps the least common type in YOB — and maybe even within the greater “Side B” community? Is it simply because the closet is especially comfortable for a Three and less threatening to their reputation in the Church? Adam also confesses why he thinks Threes are the least desirable type in the Church and how that’s impacted his ability to belong as a believer.
Listen to our full Enneagram conversation, and be sure to follow us these last few weeks as we finish dialing around the Enneagram with each type in our community!
