Individuality - The Core Quality of Enneagram Point 4

In this episode of the Awareness to Action Enneagram podcast, Mario Sikora, María José Munita, Seth "Creek" Creekmore talk about the core quality of Enneagram Point Four – individuality – and its connecting points. Individuality is the idea that everybody is distinct, whether they try to be or not. They discuss how this is more important to this type that they need to address it and manufacture their distinctness somehow by striving to feel unique.

“Society needs to classify people, needs to see patterns, and we keep trying to find those.” -María José [11:54]

“The thing that we all learn when it comes to change is that progress is measured by how quickly we get out of the hole.” -Mario [51:33]

“It doesn’t matter if I’m going anywhere or if I’m doing anything. Like existing is enough to be happy or at least neutral. It doesn't even have to be happy.” -Creek [48:24]
