Final Thoughts on the Patterns of Expression (for now…)

In this episode of the Awareness to Action Enneagram Podcast, Mario Sikora, María José Munita and Seth "Creek" Creekmore share more thoughts on the Patterns of Expression. They break down the terminology through analogies and how patterns of expressions are more of a profile and less of a stack or an order.

“It’s hard not to think of them as 1, 2, 3. So are they all on level ground? Are they all glasses in front of you and you’ve just tend to pick one up more than the other? Is it like a rate of flow?” - Seth "Creek" Creekmore [06:33]

“And to me, it helps to think about it as a profile rather than me with three different aspects that are independent. They’re not independent.” - María José Munita [10:05]

“People often seem to think of it as almost switching in some way. I’m being self-pres now, but I’m navigating, now I’m being social. Now I’m being this. As if it’s like three different subway stops almost that visit instead of just being this soup of complexity that has particular patterns that we see.” - Mario Sikora [11:29]
