Love language x enneagram type

The power of the Enneagram can be manifested in more ways than just work and personal development. One of the (many) benefits of understanding your humanness through the enneagram is that it this radical self-awareness can create more space for compassion and connection in your relationships as well. 

In this blog, we'll merge these two concepts together by merging this potent tool with another revolutionary framework designed to help you understand yourself better and navigate your relationships with more ease: The Five Love Languages.

These five unique ways of giving and receiving love as coined by Gary Chapman, in a book by the same name, are:

  • Acts of Service
  • Quality Time
  • Receiving Gifts
  • Words of Affirmation
  • Physical Touch

Similar to the enneagram, you self-identify to determine your dominant (or perhapes, most fluent?) love language. It is common to  connect with more than just one love language, and most humans often have two they identify as their love language. Learn more about love language to identify which one(s) resonate most and how you embody them in your relationships.
