She leads 3 team projects at any given time, scoffs at the thought of getting anything less than an “A” on a final exam, and works tirelessly to improve . . . everything. But perfectionism isn’t all it’s cracked up to be.
Maybe her greatest strengths are also her weaknesses.
In this episode of “The Kylee Zempel Podcast,” Kylee talks about what it’s like to be an “Enneagram 1.” She covers the Enneagram and other personality tests, misconceptions about “Ones,” dangers of the Enneagram, and how “One” thought patterns like perfectionism, a drive for excellence, and leadership tendencies are both wonderful and unhealthy.
Whether you’ve taken the Enneagram or not, whether you’re a Myers-Briggs “ENTP” or “ISFJ,” or whether you’re a “red” or a “blue,” this episode lends insight to the internal motivations and thought patterns of a 21st-century perfectionist.
