This is Us | WEEK 1

Assess yourself and your core longings
As part of this message series, we suggest you can take this personality assessment. But before you take the assessment, pray Psalm 139, especially v 23-24: Search me, O God, and know my heart—test me and know my anxious thoughts. Point out anything in me that offends you, and lead me along the path of everlasting life. Let King David remind you: No one knows you like God knows you. And He loves you. Obviously, no assessment can prove or disprove your worth to God, however, this assessment can help you understand yourself better. May you use this knowledge not as a burden, but as a reminder of the beautiful and intricate way in which God made you. Beth McCord, of ‘Your Enneagram Coach’ reminds us that Christ completely satisfies every core longing, allowing our hearts to find true rest in Him. May you use this knowledge not as a burden, but as a reminder of the beautiful and intricate way in which God made you.

Core Longing for Each Type
1—Reformer: You are good.
2—Helper: You are wanted and loved for just being you.
3—Achiever: You are loved and valued for simply being yourself.
4—Individualist: You are fully seen for who you are.
5—Investigator: Your needs are not a problem.
6—Loyalist: You are safe.
7—Enthusiast: You will be taken care of.
8—Challenger: You will not be betrayed.
9—Peacemaker: Your presence matters.

After the assessment, hold your results loosely. They may be accurate; they may not be. As we continue through the series, it may become more clear.
