The 9 Enneagram Types Told By 'The Office'

Because everything should be put in the context of "The Office".

The 9 Enneagram Types Told By 'The Office'

The office is quite possibly one of the best comedies ever created, if you disagree, I'm concerned about your sense of humor. Everything is better when put in terms of the office, so it only seems fitting for the enneagram. Continue reading if you would like to know how I believe your enneagram type is portrayed by "The Office".

1. The Idealist

Type ones are idealists who are constantly striving to improve themselves. Don't take it personally if they call out your imperfections, they genuinely think they're helping.

2. The Helper

Two's are very interpersonal and they have a deep desire to be loved by others. They may apologize a lot simply because they are very conscious of other peoples needs.

3. The Achiever

Threes are usually quite the charmers, and it is truly perplexing when someone doesn't like them.

4. The Individualist

A type four is very creative and unique, but they also tend to be a bit melancholy. They feel their emotions a bit more intensely than the rest of us.

5. The Investigator

Fives are always eager to learn more and soak up all the knowledge that they can. They are typically filled with questions.

6. The Loyalist

A six is always prepared for the worst-case scenario.

7. The Enthusiast

Sevens are usually just happy to be here. I imagine they are the most likely people to be "raising the roof" in an office setting.

8. The Challenger

Eights are always ready for a challenge, in fact they often are the instigators. They certainly are not afraid of confrontation.

9. The Peacemaker

When work (or life) gets stressful, you know where to find a nine - avoiding responsibility. If you ignore it, it will go away, right?

If you're not a fan of how your number is portrayed, that's just confirmation that it is, in fact, your enneagram type. Often times, the enneagram is so true it hurts, and these scenes from "The Office" might just add insult to injury, but Michael Scott makes everything better.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
