Emotional Intelligence and the Process of Change for Types 7, 8, and 9

In this episode of the Awareness to Action Enneagram podcast, Mario Sikora, María José Munita and Seth "Creek" Creekmore wrap up their discussion about the process of change and discuss Types 7, 8 and 9.

“I think regardless of where you think the universe is inherently meaningful or meaningless, I think that the point stands but all you have is what’s in front of you.” -Creek [23:10]

“For Eights, life is battle. There’s some kind of contest going on.” -Mario [38:22]

For me, that’s one of the most important things about the Enneagram, it’s understanding how other people probably perceive you and manage that.” -María José [44:29]
