    Default Affirmations / Famous Quotes

    Stumbled across a quote that hit me right in the chest:

    Type 5: "True knowledge exists in knowing that you know nothing. And in knowing that you know nothing, that makes you the smartest of all." -- Socrates

    This isn't just a clever quote that conveniently relates to enneagram theory, it hits right at the heart of how I feel about life. Whenever I truly embrace that nothing is knowable, that frees me to engage and act fully without fear - I can feel everything in my gut, and my head is left to simply observe and enjoy the ride. Whenever I feel the need to "pull back" into my head and reconstruct things there, I get fearful and I find it hard to truly act with confidence.

    Any other positive affirmations related to any of the types, especially ones that you relate to?

    I think Socrate was an 8.

    "Stereotypes about personality and gender turn out to be fairly accurate: ... On the binary Myers-Briggs measure, the thinking-feeling breakdown is about 30/70 for women versus 60/40 for men." ~ Bryan Caplan

    So, the song Respect just came up on my iTunes. When I heard the line Your kisses, sweeter than honey / but guess what, so is my money, I thought "oh Aretha, how I relate...!" and then "how sp/sx!"

    Funny, because I'm pretty sure Kelly Clarkson (who has covered a few of Aretha's songs) is also sp/sx.
