    Enneagram Talk Styles

    One way to type those around you is to examine their Enneagram talk style. Each type has a unique approach to speaking and writing, which can be picked up on in a matter of minutes. The following is a list of each type and their general mode of communication:

    TYPE 1: SERMONS/PREACH & TEACH
    Teaching, preaching, finding fault, admonishing, correcting, reminding of obligations
    Self-talk: ‘That’s not right’

    TYPE 2: SYMPATHIES/HELP & ADVICE/PRAISE & COMPLIMENTS
    Befriending, supporting, comforting, offering friendly advice, pitching in, meeting needs, getting personal
    Self-talk: ‘You need me’

    TYPE 3: SALES PITCHES/PROPAGANDA/SELF-PROMOTION
    Promoting, advertising, performing, exclaiming, motivational speeches, success stories
    Self-talk: ‘Watch me shine’

    TYPE 4: LAMENTS/SAD STORIES
    Longing, lamenting, extolling, yearning, regretful sighs, poetic turns of phrase, self-expression
    Self-talk: ‘I’m feeling …’

    TYPE 5: LECTURES/THESES/TREATISES
    Detailed explanations, informative displays of knowledge, definitions, facts, precise instructions, logical, rational arguments
    Self-talk: ‘I’m thinking …’

    TYPE 6: CAUTIONS/CAVEATS/SETTING LIMITS
    Questions, warnings, second-guessing, trouble-shooting, worst-case scenarios, defending / testing
    Self-talk: ‘But what if …’

    TYPE 7: ANECDOTES/BRAINSTORMING/STORYTELLING
    Joking, laughing, story-telling, entertaining, shifting gears, changing venues, sampling, imagining, checking out, moving on
    Self-talk: ‘On a lighter note’

    TYPE 8: COMMANDS/DIATRIBES/LAYING TRIPS
    Arguing, debating, opposing, taking aim, scoring points, parting shots, military metaphors
    Self-talk: ‘Do this my way’

    TYPE 9: CHRONICLES/SAGAS/EPICS
    Recounting sagas, epics, generalizing, day-dreaming aloud, voicing vague notions, wondering, meandering
    Self-talk: ‘Nice ’n easy’

    Awesome, this is very helpful. Fours sound like a sad bunch though. Time to do some Enneagram spotting...

    THANK YOU SO MUCH. This seems pretty accurate, as far as I can tell. The only other way I can type Enneagram is seeing into someone's soul. XD

    As a 6, I'm totally 6. And I can see the 5 in my ENTP friend, as well as the 1/2 in my ESFJ mom.

    3 and 4 sound most like me.

    It might be interesting if we did videos of each type talking. I made a video a while back and it was my manner of speech in this video that actually convinced me I was a 9.

    That's an interesting idea, although I think there would have to be some good questions discussed. I don't think these talk styles apply as much to solo speaking, but there are definite clues that can be picked up by watching how someone presents themself, too.

    Six, seven, and eight for me. Okay, and maybe a dash of one.

    I like the idea of videos. Set something up?
