Enneagraaaaaaam. You’re so sick of them, but YOU’RE HERE. It’s kind of like those tests from our teen magazines: You. just. can’t. resist.
I’ve been thinking about doing this since March and here we are in August. That’s this year in a nutshell. A while ago, I picked book recommendations for your enneagram number, which you can find here. The book recommendations you’ll find in this post are more specific to 2020 self, your pandemic self, the self that keeps asking “is this really happening?”.
I’ll get to it. The links below are affiliate (thank you for using them or shopping independent!) and, of course, I want to hear if I got your number right! I am enneagram expert, so I’m sure I did*.
*I am an expert on nothing.
One of the things I like most about reading is that it’s the only way I can think of where you can be inside someone else’s head. You get to experience so many perspectives and live so many lives through reading in a way that even through the screen or conversation you don’t have in the same way. I think that’s the appeal of the enneagram and other personality typing systems for me, too: a chance to see inside of the way someone else experiences their world.
