Ever since the Coronavirus was declared as a pandemic in March, the majority of countries around the world went on lockdown. You were told to stay home unless you had to run an essential errand such as going grocery shopping or picking up medication. Businesses that were deemed non-essential such as hair salons had to close. This was to slow the spread of the virus so that healthcare workers would not be overwhelmed.
In areas where the population is not overwhelming, this tactic has worked. In other areas such as New York City, it was a challenge. However, now you see that the curve is flattening, and you are starting to see some businesses slowly reopen. What will you do once the economy really does reopen (and remember it will be very slow to start) based on your Enneagram type?
Type 1 – The Reformer – If you have this Enneagram type where you want to go by the rules and do what is right, you will continue to stay home unless you have to run an errand that does not involve grabbing groceries. You will continue social distancing. The virus may be less of an issue, but it is not gone.
Type 2 – The Helper – You need to be with other people and you will visit friends and family, as long as you know you are healthy and that they are healthy.
Type 3 – The Achiever -You want to show off how fit you are. You will be disappointed that gyms are not opening quite yet but this is the first place where you will run off to once it does open. In the meantime, you’ll be jogging in the parks so show others that you are taking the best care of yourself and staying fit.
Type 4 – The Individualist – You will need to be emotionally satisfied and you will be happy to be able to go to Starbucks again and enjoy a mocha, but you are fine with sticking to the six-foot rule. Your dream is to be there by yourself.
Type 5 – The Observer – You need your privacy as always so not much will really change for you. In fact, you don’t see why others are rushing for the lockdown to end. As long as you can be at home stimulating your mind, you are happy.
Type 6 – The Loyal Cynic – Trust is a major issue for you and you need to be reassured that you will be okay. That is why you likely will not leave your home until a vaccine or an effective treatment has been established and proven.
Type 7 – The Enthusiast – You need excitement so you will run to the nearest shop that opens just for the sake of getting out of the home. You will keep tabs on the rest of the places that are opening.
Type 8 – The Challenger – You are bold so you’ll keep tabs on the stores that are ready to open, and you’ll make sure that you are the first one to head over. You’ll even camp out there the night before to make sure you are guaranteed a spot in there since they will reduce the capacity of how many people to allow in at once.
Type 9 – The Peacemaker – You are there to please, therefore, you will do whatever those around you choose to do. However, if you live near a beach, that is where you will want to go first.
What do you plan to do once the lockdown lifts?
