Enneagram 5 with Scott Quigley

Enneagram 5 with Scott Quigley.jpg

Do you find yourself preferring to stay at home, read a book, and self-reflect? Do you love learning new things, and like to think long and hard on things before acting?  If so you may very well be a five on the enneagram scale. While fives can flourish in a particular study because so much is poured into that, fives also tend to withdraw and hide their emotions, afraid to let others see their true thoughts.  Just as with all the other enneagram types, fives have unique contributions that others just can’t offer.

In this episode I sit down with Scott Quigley.  Scott has studied archaeology and anthropology and is no stranger to studying human behavior.  He helps break down how a five operates and how they think. He explains in detail why fives ask so many questions, how they think and the breakdown of their thought process.  Whether you are a five, live with, or work with a five, you definitely don’t want to miss this inside look that will help you to communicate better as a five or with fives.
