Are you having a hard time determining whether your Enneagram pattern is a 5 or a 9?

On the outside, both of these types can have a tendency to withdraw or disengage. Both like to take their time and resist being rushed. On a team, both may have a tendency to over delegate or under delegate in order to control or keep engagement to a minimum. But what’s going on on the inside is very different.

I unpack the differences here. If your pattern is a 5 or 9, feel free to add your own experience of how you feel different on the inside. Speak to the motivation rather than the behavior others can see.
