053: [Revisited] :: Rob Bell (Enneagram 7), Author, Speaker & Gracious Provocateur
Average Sevens have an incredible ability to reframe almost everything that is sad, limiting or could be perceived as failure, changing the narrative so that even the most negative events are recast in an affirming way. Sevens don't want to feel unpleasant emotions, particularly that swirl of fear and emptiness they register at their core. But when Sevens are in a healthy space, they are able to incorporate pain and disappointment into the whole of their lives, rather than merely avoiding it. They are not only fun and adventurous but also spiritually grounded, practical and resilient.
Sevens embody joy and a boundless love for life. They crave stimulation and live for tomorrow. Discovering the Enneagram was a game-changer for Rob. His knowledge and enthusiasm for the Enneagram runs deep, and as you’ll discover while revisiting this episode, Rob is an Enneagram "7 with a 7 wing."
