No Small Thing – Podcast: Enneagram

Every fifth episode of No Small Thing is an Enneagram episode. Above is their first one, where they talk about Type 5s. Co-host Scott Gronholz is a 5. Check it out.

I started listening to this podcast because Macie is one of the teachers at my son’s school and she seems super interesting and cool. She is. I was just chatting with her that listening to her podcast gives me this strange sense of intimacy with her, since I get to learn more about her with every episode I listen to. But I don’t know her at all. Scott took some getting use to for me but he has grown on me. I love listening to this while I am gardening, cooking or cleaning.

By the way, I now think I am a Type 8. Do not take a test. I read you should listen to other’s stories and research on your own to find your number. What this has done for me more than anything else is open my mind that not everyone thinks like me. In a lot of ways it has saved my marriage. I can communicate what I am feeling better and being more understanding of choices i would not make.
