Are you the type that is always looking for something new and exciting? Are you adventurous? Are you enthusiastic? And do you live on spontaneity? Do you see the glass half-full? If that is the case then you might be the Enneagram Type 7, The Enthusiast. Another name for this type is The Adventurer.
The Enthusiast of the Enneagram is that type that has a strong appreciation for having new experiences. You would also be quite goal-oriented as well, and you would do anything you could to seek excitement. You would never want to miss out on any type of opportunity. But there is a fear here and that is the fear of being deprived of any type of excitement. Like the other types, The Enthusiast has some strengths and weaknesses. Let’s go over the strengths first.
The Strengths Of The Enthusiast
Your strong points would be:
- Having an optimistic point of view
- Being extremely creative
- Seeing that there are plenty of solutions to problems
- Not putting all eggs into one basket
- Picking up new skills quite quickly
- Very sociable
However, like the other types, The Enthusiast has some weak points as well. Let’s go over those briefly.
The Weaknesses Of The Enthusiast
The Enthusiast has difficulty with:
- Finishing up projects
- Making decisions without thinking them through carefully
- Being impulsive
- Being reliable
- Being in the present
If you are The Enthusiast and you are struggling with those weak points, then there are ways to become healthy personality-wise. What you can do is instead of being impulsive, think what you want to do through carefully and take your time with it. You will be amazed once you weigh the pros and cons of how it is easy to make a mindful decision on something. You also need to take the time to face negative emotions and work with them. And being a better listener will be quite helpful as well. If you find value with what is right in front of you and can stay in the present, then that will be helpful to you as well.
The careers that are most fitting for your Enneagram type are:
- Anything that involves art
- Travel and tourism

If you are The Enthusiast, do you have any of these careers? If you do, are you glad you had gotten into what you have? Or if you don’t, how do you feel about the line of work that you do?
