    Default The perfect compliment

    There was a thread before about what enneagram 4's DON'T want to hear. And last night I heard what enneagram 4's most ideally want to hear. I was complimented as being interesting, thoughtful, and beautiful. And I thought to myself... so perfectly what I've always wanted to hear... so perfectly 4w5.

    It got me wondering, what are the perfect compliments for each enneagram? Do some enneagrams not care to be complimented at all?

    My rough estimate for say... a type 5 would be... you're incredibly intelligent. For a 9... you're so calm and serene...

    IDK. I'm curious to hear what you guys have to say. Maybe we're all interested in hearing the same compliments.

    To me, as a 4w5 too, are the perfect compliments these:

    I have never met a person like you. You are truly unique.
    You are so insightful (It's probably a trait of my 5 wing).
    You have a soul of artist, you are so creative.
    You have really original view of world.

    I love compliments

    Nothing flatters me more than when I am asked a question (ostensibly out of genuine interest or even just curiosity) about myself or a topic I'm intimately familiar with and/or passionate about... I melt, and, frequently, get carried away with the answer.

    Are you sure that the perfect compliment is driven by enneagram types? Moreso, wouldn't this be the underlying valuations of what the individual believes to be their positive traits?

    Well, that was what I was curious to find out. To me, being called interesting, beautiful and thoughtful seemed perfectly fit to what a 4w5 would want to hear. But then again, maybe it's what we all want to hear.

    I think you are on to something Indy. For example...if someone called me thoughtful I would kinda be thinking ???

    But if someone said to me...I love being with you. We might be doing the most routine of things, yet you make everything so fun...I would be

    Perfect compliment for a six: Assuring them of your love during and after a freak out. That earns a lot of trust and prevents future freak outs, because usually the episode is testing your loyalty in the first place, even if it feels like an attack or breakdown to you.

    I don't know what the perfect compliment for an 8 would be but someone once said I was "passionate" and "compassionate". It is probably the best compliment I've had. I still remember them speaking the words and that was about 7 years ago.
