We conclude these Head Triad episodes, along with our entire Enneagram ConvoCast series with our brother from across the pond, Daniel! Daniel shares his motivations, fears, stress, and security as a Type Seven (the Enthusiast). As a member of our YOB community, how does his Seven-ness manifest in the realms of sexuality, masculinity, and relating with other men?
Daniel remembers the first time he felt shame for showing enthusiasm as a child, and how that response impacted his introversion — a rare disposition for Sevens. He discusses his love for travel, moving from the Philippines to the United Kingdom, visiting 35 cities in one year, seeing a different country every month, and even coming to America for multiple YOB retreats. But when does a love for travel turn to escape? When is escape healthy and courageous, and when is escape more detrimental? Regarding sexuality and relationships, was he constantly trying to escape something uncomfortable, something painful, something sad? We close the conversation with the growth and beauty of a Seven who can stay put and persevere — with others, with self, and with God.
Listen to our full Enneagram conversation, and thanks for following us on this Enneagram journey this summer!
