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.

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.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
