Espionage (or Secret Agent)

Corresponds to Enneagram Style 5, Intimate Subtype

Twelve Things about You

1. You bond to your partner by sharing secrets and sex

2. Sharing information and secrets, rather than your deepest feelings, replaces true sexual intimacy for you

3. Because even this amount of self-revelation feels frightening, you are extremely careful about who you share it with, and even then, you preserve a certain amount of your own autonomy

4. You feel you have enough emotional juice for only one person, upon whom you focus your attention, time and affection.

5. You fear being overwhelmed by the demands of others, are acutely aware of your emotional poverty, feeling unable to meet the expectations and desires of others

6. You want to be loved, but fear inadequacy of emotional response.

7. If confident, you are a wonderful partner because you focus all your attention on your significant other instead of wasting scarce resources on impulse or adventure

8. You feel that your relationship with your partner is sacred

9. You might treasure your experiences more in your memory than in reality

10. Your encounters with your partner are often intensely physical

11. You will treasure for a lifetime the key disclosures made with your partner

12. Your shared confidences temper the loneliness that comes from isolating yourself from your feelings while maintaining your autonomy and power.


  1. Man, I've got to check out enneagrams for characterizations. This is awesome.

  2. Wow...I hope I'm a Secret Agent!! Found you from the A-Z Challenge, looks like it’s going to be a lot of fun, with maybe with a little bit of stress thrown in!! I’m now following you on GFC and I hope you have a chance to check out my blog!

  3. I'm following your enneagram series with great interest! Still haven't taken the time to find out my style, but I plan to here as soon as I can (*she says this as she's rushing out the door, again*). Thanks for sharing all this great stuff :-)

  4. I love what you are doing with this challenge. By Z, you will have a whole slew of well-rounded character types to work with. May I steal some???

  5. Hi all, thanks for stopping by! Well certainly, you can "steal" whichever character types you want. I don't own them. They are all of us!

  6. Nice! Good information for the James Bond type of character. And (sigh) great picture!

  7. Ooh, interesting A to Z posts. Great way to get to know your characters.

  8. Thank you for visiting me. From what I can see here on your site, we have an awful lot in common! Next time I'll have some coffee and cinnamon buns ready when you visit. LOL

  9. Wow, I'm impressed! I can't wait to read your other posts!

    Thank you so much for visiting, commenting and following me! I am now following you with great interest! I've always wanted to write fiction but never had the nerve. I really like what you're doing with the challenge!

  10. Love Bond. Who doesn't want to be a secret agent. Thanks for stopping by my food blog. I went crazy and signed up two of my blogs for the challenge. On May 1st I am officially being committed.
