The Reformer

I feel like I know an Enneagram-type one but it’s not confirmed. Are you an Enneatype One? Or do you know someone? Find out by reading the characteristics and behaviors.

The One is called the Reformer. They have essential qualities like goodness, sacredness, and purity. Their basic desire is to be “good” along with virtuous and have integrity. They are highly ethical and self-principled. They possess a great sense of purpose and conviction.

Their mindset is “right” or “wrong” and whatever is wrong needs to be corrected. They wanna get things right and they put energy into integrity. They believe there’s a right way and a wrong way to do everything. And you must live your life with purpose.

Their basic fear is being “bad”, corrupt, Unredeemable, condemnable, and chaotic. They live between improving themselves and their world, everything needs to be consistent with their ideals. When others don’t meet their ideals or standards, they get angry when others don’t take their ideals seriously. They can become opinionated and sarcastic.

If they continue to slide down to unhealthy levels they can become an obsessive hypocrite. They show characteristics of being bitter, misanthropic, and highly self-righteous.

Famous ones include Hilary Clinton, Al Gorr, Nelson Mándela, Elizabeth Warren, Martha Stewart, Harrison Ford, Jane Fonda, Meryl Streep, George Harrison, and “Mr. Spock”
