Striving to Feel Unique (Enneagram Type Four)

In this episode of the Awareness to Action Enneagram podcast, Mario Sikora, María José Munita and Seth "Creek" Creekmore discuss Enneagram Type Four, “Striving to Feel Unique,” through the personal experiences of Creek. They share how the Type Four appears in the workplace, what drives them and growth strategies.

“I think a lot of times Fours feel like they’re the most tapped into reality because they see more of the darkness of life. Depths do contain darkness, but just because you’re tapped into darkness doesn’t mean you’re tapped into depth.” -Creek [13:07]

“For me, the growth for the Four is in realizing that most of what they’re doing is just derivative of say Holden Caulfield in ‘Catcher in the Rye.’” -Mario [14:27]

“I think we all have beliefs that are our biases given by our type. In the case of Type Four, while striving to feel unique, when you think that your situation is more difficult, tougher, you suffer more, and it is a misrepresentation of reality. And my experience is that Fours who are able to see that and be more objective about situations they’re in have a better time responding to it. They’re more adaptive because they see more objectively and they suffer less.” -María José [43:38]
