What is it like to be an Enneagram Five?

Instagram poet and artist Morgan Harper Nichols reflects on this question in a spirit of honest self-assessment and with a desire for personal and spiritual growth. She draws wisdom from the deep wells of counseling and spirituality using illustrations from both Scripture and life. Each of these forty readings concludes with an opportunity for further engagement such as a prayer, a spiritual practice, or a reflection question. Morgan's art enhances the readings as well.

Any of us can find aspects of ourselves in any of the numbers. The Enneagram is a profound tool for empathy, so whether or not you are a Five, you will grow from your reading about Fives and enhance your relationships across the Enneagram spectrum.

"We've come to appreciate and trust Morgan as a well of deep wisdom. She has a unique capacity to speak words of beautiful truth and deep grace. Morgan's honest reflections on her own journey as a Five serve as a trustworthy guide for others exploring this same terrain in their own lives or in the lives of those they love."

Alan and Gem Fadling, authors of What Does Your Soul Love? and founders of Unhurried Living

"Slowing down to think is not a novel idea for an Enneagram Five. We love that. But in these reflections, Morgan invites us to do more than mull over the facts and data points that swirl in our minds as we make sense of life. She invites us to meditate with her on the gift God has given us in our unique personalities, as well as to press into the beauty of the way our unique struggles can draw us nearer to him—and to one another."

Jasmine Holmes, author of Mother to Son
