so recently i've been super into Enneagram, a personality model similar to myer briggs (16 personalities), but which focuses on nine types and their connections to one another, not to mention the variables within each type. personally, i've found it more reliable than mbti but it might be up to personal preference.

https://www.enneagraminstitute.com/type-descriptions here's an overiew! i identify as a 4 with a wing of 3. your wings will always be one type down or one type one from your dominant type. for example, 6w7 or 6w5, 2w3, or 2w1.

and here's what it looks like visually!

in terms of the aio charcters; i'm pretty sure that jason is a 7w8, both an enthusiast and a challenger.
eugene is almost definitely a 1w9, reformer and peacmamaker. (ones with a wing of nine generally are observers and sometimes seen as being cold hearted)
connie seems like she would be a 6w7?

i'm still relatively new to the whole thing, so i'd love to see your thoughts. was i accurate in my research? how would you type other characters? and what's your enneagram type?

I just wanted to pop in to say this is a very creative and interesting idea. I’ve heard about Enneagram, but I haven’t taken it myself yet. Once I do I might be able to help categorize AiO characters.

My siblings/cousins/family in general are obsessed with it too. While talking with my siblings, we decided Eugene is a 5, not a 1. I am a 1, and we are very by-the-book/proud/have to do what is right in our eyes. Eugene is more the typical nerd stereotype, which is a 5. He is motivated by understanding the world, and thus is so nerdy and knows so much. Eugene's self obsession is also a thing, so maybe a 5 wing 4? Also the fact that Eugene has many different writers etc., so I'm sure his personality changes more often then a normal person or even character in most short tv shows.

We also were thinking Whit is somewhere around a 6/7. He's very independent. He also could be a 2? but I think he is just a kind person, and not motivated exactly by helping other.

that's actually something i hadn't really thought of! his writing isn't what I'd call inconsistent, but yeah, sometimes he acts more scholarly, or more analytical, or more abstract. he's got a lot of the characteristics that a typical five has. i'd say he might be a 5w6? generallly, 5s with a wing of 6 are more abstract thinkers. but it's probable we won't land on an exact type because he has so many writers.
