Michael Scott has a quote for any and every occasion, and there are some that resonate more with certain Enneagram types than others. Here's a list of Enneagram feelings based on Michael Scott.
When 1s are asked about work: "I guess I've been working so hard, I forgot what it's like to be hardly working."
When 1s see karma doing its job: "It just seems awfully mean. But sometimes, the ends justify the mean."
When 1s see someone doing something without thinking: "I hate so much about the things you choose to be."
When 2s have big and selfless hearts: "When the son of the deposed king of Nigeria emails you directly, asking for help, you help! His father ran the freaking country! Ok?"
When 2s first meet other people: "I guess the attitude that I've tried to create here is that I'm a friend first and a boss second and probably an entertainer third."
When 2s meet their best friend's significant other: "If you break that girl's heart, I will kill you. That's just a figure of speech. But seriously, if you break that girl's heart, I will literally kill you and your entire family."
When 3s explain their intentions: "Would I rather be feared or loved? Easy. Both. I want people to be afraid of how much they love me."
When 3s have an existential crisis: "Do I need to be liked? Absolutely not. I like to be liked. I enjoy being liked. I have to be liked, but it's not like this compulsive need to be liked, like my need to be praised."
When 3s talk about their goals: "I wanna be married and have 100 kids so I can have 100 friends and no one can say 'no' to being my friend."
When 4s talk about personal relationships: "Two weeks ago, I was in the worst relationship of my life. She treated me poorly, we didn't connect, I was miserable. Now, I am in the best relationship of my life, with the same woman."
When 4s try to connect with their emotions: "Society teaches us that having feelings and crying is bad and wrong. Well, that's baloney, because grief isn't wrong. There's such a thing as good grief. Just ask Charlie Brown."
When 4s get overwhelmed: "I am running away from my responsibilities. And it feels good."
When 5s talk about something they learned: "I would say I kind of have an unfair advantage, because I watch reality dating shows like a hawk, and I learn. I absorb information from the strategies of the winners and the losers. Actually, I probably learn more from the losers."
When 5s start taking themselves too seriously: "Sometimes you have to take a break from being the kind of boss that's always trying to teach people things. Sometimes you just have to be the boss of dancing."
When 5s give advice: "They say that your wedding day goes by in such a flash that you're lucky if you even get a piece of your own cake. I say that's crazy. I say let them eat cake. Margaret Thatcher said that about marriage. Smart broad."
When 6s talk about their nerves: "I'm not superstitious but I am a little stitious."
When 6s talk about friendship: "The people that you work with are, when you get down to it, your very best friends."
When 6s trying to make the best of something: "Granted, maybe this was not the best idea, but at least we care enough about our employees that we are willing to fight for them."
When 7s are asked something in-depth: "Sometimes I'll start a sentence, and I don't even know where it's going. I just hope I find it along the way."
When 7s talk about their spontaneous adventures: "I had a great summer. I got west nile virus, lost a ton of weight. Then I went back to the lake. And I stepped on a piece of glass in the parking lot, which hurt. That got infected. Even though I peed on it."
When 7s stand up for something: "That was offensive and lame. So double offensive. This is an environment of welcoming and you should just get the hell out of here."
When 8s explain their reasoning behind something: "Reverse psychology is an awesome tool. I don't know if you guys know about it, but, basically, you make someone think the opposite of what you believe. And that tricks them into doing something stupid. Works like a charm."
When 8s give their honest opinion: "Nobody likes beets, Dwight! Why don't you grow something that everybody does like? You should grow candy."
When 8s talk about their strengths: "I'm an early bird and a night owl. So I'm wise and have worms."
When 9s talk about equality: "Now, you may look around and see two groups here. White collar, blue collar. But I don't see it that way. And you know why not? Because I am collar-blind."
When 9s are overwhelmed: "My mind is going a mile an hour."
When 9s do their best to be accommodating: "Is there something besides 'Mexican' you prefer to be called? Something less offensive?"
