The Enneagram is an ancient personality typology using nine points within a circle to represent nine distinct personality types. This sixty-day devotional is for the Perfectionist, number 1 of the Enneagram personality types.
This book will help Perfectionists, and those who love them, better understand how God created them and how best to use their unique gifts to serve Him and love others. It features a full explanation of what the Enneagram is and how it benefits people, followed by a full description of what it means to be a 1, including the Perfectionist’s deadly sin and their greatest strength.
Some attributes of the Perfectionist:
- Motivation: To be good, have integrity, and achieve this by following the rules.
- Biggest Fear: Ones fear being evil or corrupt, unable to do good things or make a difference.
- Gut Triad: Ones, along with Eights and Nines, receive information through their gut, instinctively feeling if something is right or wrong. When Ones see others blatantly disobeying the “rules” that are very obvious to them, it triggers an anger response, and can cause Ones to be burdened by boiling frustration.
The sixty days of this devotional are split into six 10-day topics that include uniqueness, weakness, strength, pain points, and how Perfectionists react in times of stress and growth.
My thoughts: While I am not a Perfectionist, I am married to a man who can relate a lot to this devotional! I feel like having read up on the Enneagram and the way the different personalities interact has given me insight into how my husband's brain works. This devotional is a unique one, tailored to the personality of an Enneagram 1. I've enjoyed the devotionals I have done in this series and look forward to doing the one that I relate the most to.
I received this book from Celebrate Lit. This is my honest review and is in no way influenced by receiving a complimentary copy.
