We’ve been obsessed with the Enneagram ever since we discovered it last year, and we’re pretty sure we passed that obsession on to many of you!
One of Rachel’s clients recently said that discovering her Enneagram type felt like “a punch to the soul.” And damn, that’s exactly how it feels when you pinpoint your type — like you’ve been truly seen, but in the most vulnerable, cold-sweat inducing way!
And for those of you who haven’t taken the Enneagram yet and are wondering why in the world you’d ever inflict a “cold-sweat-soul-punch” on yourself … fair. We’d argue it’s because, until you know your deepest (and often most unattractive) default programming, you can’t break free or grow beyond it. And that’s something worth doing.
So, in the spirit of growth, we’re revisiting the Enneagram in this month’s brand-new Side Chat, after stumbling upon a theory about the Enneagram that makes SO much sense (and made Kristen cry a little).
We’re getting into…
- What Enneagram Soul Child Theory is, and why it made the Enneagram click even more deeply for us and our other coach-friends.
- How you might have adapted your dominant Enneagram type as a way to protect yourself from rejection/pain … and what type you might really be, on a soul-level.
- An explanation of what type you might have started out as in childhood, and what type you became as an adult.
After you listen come leave a comment to share your reaction to this theory and how accurate it felt for you!

There are many Enneagram tests you could take, but here are two that we’ve both personally taken. Keep in mind that you’ll want to set aside about 45 minutes to complete either test:
