Dr. Richard Lindroth, Developing Your Emotional Side as an Enneagram Five [S03-001]
Others often perceive the interior world of the Enneagram Five, or The Observer, as mysterious. Known to use the pursuit of knowledge as a defense against a world that seems unpredictable, The Observer can appear to not have or be in touch with their emotions. This is simply not the case. In fact, The Observer is one of the most misunderstood Enneagram type in terms of emotions and relationships. Enneagram Fives can actually have very intense emotions, but they just may not express them. Listen as our guest, Dr. Richard Lindroth takes us into the interior world of The Observer. He shows us how deeply attuned to beauty and transcendence he is, how he strives to overcome being emotionally distant from himself, and how he’s waking up to the emotional as well as the spiritual components of life.
