By Ian Isaiah Ding|Enneagram Type 1

There are 9 points in the Enneagram which symbolizes the 9 different personality types, and this post will feature the 17 signs that you could be an Enneagram Type 1!

Known for being perfectionists, you may be a Enneagram Type 1 if you identify with most of the following:

  1. You see the world in black and white, yes and no, right or wrong, and you pretty much dislike anything in between or ambiguous (because what does maybe mean?!)
  2. You were constantly praised as a child for being a good boy/ good girl in school or at home for complying with the rules
  3. You always think that your work is not good enough and nowhere near perfect…
  4. You feel that it is wrong to get angry and you do your best not to show it yet when you do, people still ask you, “Are you angry?” (NO I clearly am not!)
  5. You expect things to be neat, tidy, and organized…
  6. But actually… sometimes you’d also fail to meet your expectations of being neat, tidy and organized
  7. You have a strong need to know the little details and fine print before you can move on and get things done
  8. People have labelled you with the term “OCD” before, and it is mostly because of your strong need to have everything in order
  9. You put 120% in everything that you do but still think it is not good enough…
  10. …and because you feel that it is not good enough, you tend to procrastinate. A lot. Until there is no choice left but to submit your “imperfect” work…
  11. …AND WHEN YOU DO, EVERYBODY SAYS IT IS DAMN GOOD WORK even though you feel that IT STILL IS NOT GOOD ENOUGH (seriously!)
  12. You are always looking and thinking of how you can improve things or make them better
  13. and sometimes you blurt comments out, unknowingly hurting people in the process (but… is it wrong to say what is not right?)
  14. You find it quite hard to adapt to change until and unless you know all the details that you need
  15. You have very high self-control
  16. You feel that it is wrong to judge others and you don’t do it. (You’re just commenting on how they can be better)
  17. You found it uncomfortable that every alternate word in no. 11 is in bold while the rest are not…
