Instincts and Subtypes with Aaron Niequist [S02-002]
Season One was an exciting journey and I'm thrilled to continue Season Two with a really great friend who I've known for many years, Aaron Niequist.
Though Aaron is a four on the Enneagram, we're actually going to explore some new territory today. We're going to go into some content that'll be great for every single number to know and learn about. With two fours on the line, I do need to say that because otherwise everyone will just assume that all we're going to do is talk about ourselves for a long time. Not today.
So many of our listeners have asked me to talk about subtypes. Everybody asks, "Can you please say more about subtypes? What are they and how do I determine mine?" Those are great questions actually because there are multiple variations of type. You have pure type, just the type. Then, you have a type along with a wing. Now, you've got a type plus another version of that type. Then, you have a stress point and you have a security point. Well, now, there are two more variations of that type. I think what happens with each variation is you get another degree of clarity about the nature of the type itself, it's different flavors and expressions.
One of the most important next steps a person can take after they know all the basics is to learn their subtype. If you are somebody who, for example, can't figure out your type, I would take you to what are called instincts and subtypes because that's another way of kind of getting at type. So tune in as I break it down for you and Aaron.
