This video is for all you Enneagram fives. This is fascinating. You never know when you might need to research something. I’m almost ready for lunch! So pokey. Oh! I found an ant.
I wonder why ants go on cacti? Did you bring your phone? I’m gonna look it up.
I’ll come during the party in just a little bit. I just need a little time to
myself. But just. Just a little bit. I’m just. I’ll be right there. I just. I’m just.
One second. I’m just gonna. Okay by. In this video we’re gonna be talking all
about Enneagram fives. AKA the investigator. If you don’t know what the
Enneagram is I’ve made a quick and simple beginner’s guide to the Enneagram and linked it in a card right here. I’m Abbey Howe and I’m here to help
you discover you. For more videos about personality types and the Enneagram make sure to subscribe to this channel. Now on to Enneagram Five! At their best
healthy fives are perceptive, insightful and curious. They have the ability to
develop complex skills and ideas. They often have a depth of knowledge in
several areas of their lives and they have the ability to see the world in
innovative new ways. I have a five in my life who’s one of the most important
people to me. She is loving. She’s passionate.She’s super interesting. She’s
the best listener in the whole world and she always helps me deconstruct my very
complicated emotions. That said, there are also some very annoying things that
Enneagram fives do. So in this video I’m going to explore seven annoying things
that Enneagram fives do and say. But keep in mind this is all in good fun. I just
want to explore the Enneagram in a funny, light-hearted way. Number one. Enneagram fives’ basic fear is of being useless. This means that they often
struggle with anything in their lives that makes them feel incompetent or
incapable. So that’s why I think that unless you have something revolutionary
to add to a musical that’s already been done, revival should just stop. I mean
there’s so many amazing new musicals out there that deserve the time and
attention of Broadway. But oh, no, let’s do Rent ..let’s do Cats again cuz we know it works. Don’t you agree?
Um. I, I don’t know anything about musicals. But, um, I’m just gonna run home real quick and watch ten thousand YouTube videos and then I’ll get back to you on
that. So if you’ll just excuse me. I’ll .. just excuse me okay. Number two. Unhealthy fives don’t want to depend on anyone for anything.
This means that social engagements can be really difficult for a five because
they experience the world as overwhelming, intrusive, and draining. They don’t believe that they have the inner energy needed to meet the demands of
life. So they detach. Are people gonna think I’m lame? Engage. Stay present. Is he upset about his boss? This is exhausting! I gotta get out of here! I have to go
home! I have to! My apartment’s on fire! I gotta get out of here! Number three. Because Fives collect knowledge, they
often are more aware than anyone of all the things that they don’t know. This
means that you can often find them doubting their qualifications. Even if
they’ve been studying something for like a decade. Oh God.
I think I threw a joint out in my back or something. Do you think you could take
a look at it? Oh man I just don’t know if I could figure it out. You’re a
chiropractor! Yes but I was at a chiropractor conference this weekend and
there was this speaker who talked about the complications between back pain and
sleep positions and there’s so much to think about. So much to research. So I
really need to do that before I ever work on anyone ever again.
You’ve been a chiropractor for ten years! I don’t know what to tell ya. Hey! Number
four. Fives prefer to observe rather than actively participate. This is a
defense strategy for the five because they believe that if you if you like
learn enough from the sidelines you’ll be prepared and ready to jump in if
something is expected of them. Unfortunately this strategy causes
isolation and separation from other people. Are you sure you don’t want to join us?
We’re doing vinyasa yoga today. No that’s okay. I think I’m just gonna watch so I
can learn how to do it that way. Okay. Number five. A five’s
constant hunger for knowledge provides fives a sense of control against
feelings of inadequacy. This can lead to a five being buried by that knowledge
collecting. Also known as falling down a bottomless worm hole known as the
Internet! Have you been here all day? Oh yeah, I’m just researching how to fix my
watch. You know there’s a watch repair shop right up the street. I’m learning
how to do it myself. So you spent your entire Saturday researching how to reset
a dial in a five-dollar watch you bought at Walgreens instead of spending your
weekend… I don’t know, hanging out with me and
seeing Star Wars? Yep. You know what “watch girl”? I’ll be in the living room
doing fun things. Have fun with your watch. Your new best friend. Number six. The deadly sin of the five is avarice. Now I’d never heard this word
before so I may be saying it wrong and I had to look it up. It basically means
greed. But it’s not greed in the sense that we think of like, oh I have to have
all the new things, I want all this stuff. Instead fives are more concerned with
hoarding what they already have. So this can mean that fives withhold love and
affection from those closest to them. I think what it means is that fives have
this inner energy and they are afraid that they don’t have enough to go around.
So if that means that they’re gonna be spending their inner energy on, like,
hugging somebody or spending time with a loved one and and they think they don’t
have enough inner energy, they will just not do it and that could come off as
withholding love because they are trying to hoard what is already inside of them.
I’m having such a bad day. Could I have a hug? I think that would make me feel
better. Oh you know I would but I’m getting sick. I don’t want to get you
sick. Oh, okay. Um, well do you want to go get coffee or something? I think that
would be a great way to turn my day around. I love you but I really need to
do my own thing right now so, no. Not going to coffee. And finally number seven. Of all the types, fives are the most emotionally detached. This does not mean that fives don’t feel things but it does mean
that they have trouble processing and they don’t want to process because
they’re afraid that it’s gonna waste their precious resources.
Why did Marlee have to die? Well he had a near fatal intestinal disorder so after
the second attack there was just no way he was gonna live a pain-free life.
Honestly euthanasia was probably the most ethical option. What? Why are you
crying so hard? Man’s best friend! If you’re an Enneagram five did these resonate with you?
Let me know in the comments down below. I think five is the Enneagram number that
I have struggled with understanding the most so far of all of the Enneagrams
that I’ve been studying so I would really greatly appreciate any feedback
you have. If you want to see more Enneagram videos I’ve put a playlist of
all my Enneagram videos in the description down below. Thank you so much for watching and, as always, have a lovely lovely day!
