They can sometimes take this too far in making excuses for bad behaviour. Nines have a tendency to idealise others and only see the good things, refusing to believe the bad. They have no difficulty in seeing the positive intention but may gloss over how well behaviour matches it.
Healthy nines can accept the flaws in people while still staying non-judgemental and understanding the positive intentions behind people's actions. So, if you are stuck in conflict, why not try thinking like a nine and see the world from many different places at once?

One of the great things about the Enneagram is the realisation it brings home that people can see the world in very different ways. It can help us to understand where they are coming from and communicate with them better. It can also help us to see where the limits of our own point of view are.
This can be achieved in NLP using the presuppositions. You take a presupposition, such as "there is no failure, only feedback" and look at your situation bearing in mind the truth of the statement.
It occurred to me recently that some presuppositions fit well with the mindsets of certain Enneagram types: they are things that this type already knows to be true. Although you never become a different type, it can be useful to see the world through their eyes.
With this in mind I plan to do a series of blog posts looking at presuppositions through the eyes of different Enneagram types.

These are different to the free introductory sessions that I offer, in that they are meant to be a complete coaching session rather than an introduction to a longer set of sessions. You can even use it for a free Enneagram typing interview.
Book now, either on the LiveNinja website or through the widget on the Enneangel website.
