Episode 17: Take Five! A Panel of 5s with Lori Chaffer, Kenny Benge, and Joel Miller
On this week’s show we invited a panel of Enneagram Fives into the studio to describe how they see and experience the world. Called the Investigators, or the Observers, Fives are kind, perceptive, sensitive, calm in a crisis and often possess a sly, slightly cynical sense of humor that’s endlessly entertaining.
But, they can also come across as detached from their feelings, or aloof, unless they feel safe to share their emotions. Fives are often the most misunderstood number on the Enneagram.
So, we asked our guests, singer-songwriter Lori Chaffer, Sr. Associate Pastor Kenny Benge, and writer/editor Joel Miller to share their wealth of knowledge and insights about being a Five.
Lori Chaffer is a singer-songwriter and avid gardener who moved from Kansas City to Nashville in 2009. She, along with her husband Don Chaffer, make up the band Waterdeep.
Kenny Benge completed a Master of Divinity with a concentration in Church History at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School in Chicago in 1995. He serves at Church of the Redeemer in Nashville as Senior Associate Pastor and was the church planter and founding pastor of St. John's Anglican Church in Franklin, TN.
Joel J. Miller is the chief content officer of Michael Hyatt & Co. As a writer and editor, he has more than fifteen years of experience in the publishing industry, including as a vice president of editorial and acquisitions for Thomas Nelson, an imprint of HarperCollins.
