I was just posting to the E4 thread and started wondering if most nuns are 2s, 4s, 5s, or 9s.
I believe Hildegard Von Bingen was 459 sx first, possibly 5 as her core E type. I did a quick search to see if I found anything interesting about her type and after following a couple of links I ended up here.
"Welcome to The Spiritual Enneagram: Nine Ways to Be Divine! Much of the material on the Enneagram Personality System that is currently available focuses on helping each of us uncover the underlying view of reality that keeps us broken and suffering. In other words, it emphasizes the negative aspects of our way of looking at the world.
Have you ever wondered about the positive aspects of each Enneagram type, the ways in which each personality embodies a different facet of the Divine? Then this blog is for you! Here, I've revised the traditional "Holy Ideas" of the Enneagram into a system called the "Sacred Ideas." This system details three different traits for each type, each of which serves as a different lens onto the Sacred.
Although each of us comes into this world with a tendency to embody just one type - and therefore just one set of Sacred Ideas - this system helps us see how we are called eventually to embody all of the different sets of Sacred Ideas. As you read about the divine qualities of each type, I encourage you to make a practice of visualizing how you might embody them in your own life.
This blog consists of:
(1)an introduction to the system,
(2)a brief exposition of the metaphysical framework in which each of these sets of Sacred Ideas fits,
(3)a summary of the spirituality and Sacred Ideas of each type, and
(4) longer posts that present sets of quotes from a variety of spiritual traditions which illustrate each of the Sacred Ideas. In the following list, each Sacred Idea has its own link. Simply click on the one(s) you want:
Type Nine:Sacred Backdrop, Sacred Self-Forgetting, Sacred Bliss
Type Eight: Sacred Omnipresence, Sacred Expanse, Sacred Resistance
Type Seven: Sacred Novelty, Sacred Flow, Sacred Freedom
Type Six: Sacred Faith, Sacred Suspense, Sacred Community
Type Five: Sacred Omniscience, Sacred Detachment, Sacred Integration
Type Four: Sacred Origin, Sacred Romance, Sacred Longing
Type Three: Sacred Discipline, Sacred Confidence, Sacred Deception
Type Two: Sacred Grace, Sacred Compassion,Sacred Praise
Type One: Sacred Goodness, Sacred Perfection, Sacred Repair
Enjoy the journey!
