What Fictional Character Your Enneagram Type Is
Start writing a post

If you're a fan of all things personality analysis, you may be familiar with Enneagram types. Whichever of the nine types you fit, there is a plethora of characters from literature that share your type along with you. So which character are you from The Lord of the Rings? Or Pride and Prejudice? Use your type to find out.

1. Type 1, The Reformer: Atticus Finch 


Reformers are highly principled and idealistic. They are purposeful, self-controlled, and tend towards perfectionism. This type fits many literary characters since it just naturally lends itself to heroism. One of the best literary examples of this is the moral Atticus Finch from To Kill A Mockingbird. Other good examples are Hermione Granger (Harry Potter), Peter Pevensie (The Chronicles of Narnia), and Claire Fraser (Outlander).

2. Type 2, The Helper: Samwise Gamgee


Helpers are caring and interpersonal. They are people-pleasers who tend to be generous but possessive. Samwise Gamgee (The Lord of the Rings) is a perfect example of a healthy two, one that is caring and altruistic. Other literary twos include Emma Woodhouse (Emma), Peeta Mellark (The Hunger Games), and Sidney Carton (A Tale of Two Cities).

3. Type 3, The Achiever: Odysseus


Achievers are focused on success above all else. They are practical, adaptive, driven, and seek to excel in all they do. There's no better character to summarize the Achiever's jack-of-all-trades nature than Odysseus (The Odyssey). As Odysseus goes through his journey, we see his many skills and talents come to life as he adapts to all the trials he faces. Other literary Achievers include Boromir and Gimli (The Lord of the Rings), and Scarlett O'Hara (Gone With the Wind).

4. Type 4, The Individualist: Anne Shirley


Individualists are sensitive and often withdrawn. They can be self-absorbed and temperamental but are also wonderfully expressive and creative. Anne Shirley (Anne of Green Gables) captures the vivid imagination and expressive spirit of the Individualist. Other literary Individualists include Jay Gatsby (The Great Gatsby), Esther Greenwood (The Bell Jar), and Liesel Meminger (The Book Thief).

5. Type 5, The Investigator: Sherlock Holmes


I mean, this one was kinda obvious. Investigators are intense, perceptive, and innovated, and they tend towards a more secretive, introverted nature. Sherlock Holmes is the perfect example, although there are many other Investigators in literature, including Klaus Baudelaire (A Series of Unfortunate Events), Elrond (The Lord of the Rings), and Hannibal Lecter (The Silence of the Lambs).

6. Type 6, The Loyalist: Elinor Dashwood


Loyalists are committed and security-oriented. They are responsible and engaging, but can tend to be paranoid and anxious. Elinor Dashwood (Sense & Sensibility) can be overly cautious, but also demonstrates the steadfast, mature characteristics that most Loyalists have. Other Loyalists include Bilbo Baggins and Thorin Oakenshield (The Lord of the Rings), Marilla Cuthbert (Anne of Green Gables), and Hamlet (Hamlet).

7. Type 7, The Enthusiast: Peter Pan


Enthusiasts are the most fun-loving type. They are spontaneous and easily distracted, always trying to keep busy. Peter Pan captures the impulsive, child-at-heart nature of the Enthusiast. Other Enthusiasts include Peregrin Took (The Lord of the Rings), Fred and George Weasley (Harry Potter), and Lydia Bennet (Pride and Prejudice).

8. Type 8, The Challenger: Inspector Javert


Challengers are powerful and dominating. They hate the idea of someone else taking control of their lives, so they tend to be incredibly self-controlled, confident, and willful. Javert (Les Miserables) is a complex example of a Challenger, one that turns his willful nature into trying to control other's lives. In literature, Challengers lend themselves especially well to headstrong, often anti-heroic types. Challenger characters include Johanna Mason (The Hunger Games) and Jo March (Little Women).

9. Type 9, The Peacemaker: Jane Bennet and Charles Bingley


Peacemakers are easygoing types. They are receptive, reassuring, and agreeable. Jane Bennet and Charles Bingley (Pride and Prejudice) are both examples of Peacemakers, whose complacent natures drive them apart for a time but ultimately bring mutual happiness. Other literary Peacemakers are Nick Carraway (The Great Gatsby), Harry Potter (Harry Potter), Dorothy (The Wizard of Oz), and Rue (The Hunger Games).

'Venom: Let There Be Carnage' Film Review

Tom Hardy and Woody Harrelson lead a tigher, more fun sequel to 2018's 'Venom'

When Sony announced that Venom would be getting a stand-alone movie, outside of the Tom Holland MCU Spider-Man films, and intended to start its own separate shared universe of films, the reactions were generally not that kind. Even if Tom Hardy was going to take on the role, why would you take Venom, so intrinsically connected to Spider-Man's comic book roots, and remove all of that for cheap action spectacle?

There's a reason why the Addams Family have become icons of the American cartoon pantheon (although having one of the catchiest theme songs in television history doesn't hinder them).
