Instincts and Subtypes

Wednesdays, April 12-May 17, 2023


In Instincts & Subtypes, you’ll learn the three instinctual drives and 27 subtypes. Every person has three instinctual drives with one that tends to be more central in our daily lives and relationships.

Our primary instinct determines our Enneagram Subtype, which may impact our day-to-day life even more than our Type. The three instinctual drives include:

  • – Self preservation guides our relationships with home, food, security, family, and warmth in relationships
  • – One-to-one fuels our personal vitality, sexuality, intimate relationships, and our experience of spiritual union
  • – Social forms our friendships, our participation in groups and community, and our social identity

  • Students will: 
  • – Explore how the 27 instinctual subtypes operate in your life and choices
  • – How to balance work, home, relationships and intimacy
  • – Managing the emotional habit of your type
  • – How to live with authenticity while adapting to a rapidly changing culture
  • – Deepen your experience by serving on a type panel and reflecting on their type.
  • – Explore and understand healthy functioning in all three of the subtypes related to your type.
