S2 E1: Clint Eastwood and Enneagram Type Nine (Part 1)

For Season Two, hosts Mario Sikora and TJ Dawe will explore the Enneagram through the lens of movie directors whose work demonstrates themes related to the nine Enneagram types and three instinctual biases. In this season premiere, Mario and TJ discuss Type Nine through Clint Eastwood and the first of four movies, “The Outlaw Josey Wales.” While known for his tough-guy roles as cops, cowboys, and soldiers, Clint Eastwood as a director actually illustrates the fundamental elements of Enneagram Type Nine.

“And I think in real life, Eastwood is this transmitting Nine, right? When you see interviews with him, he’s engaging, he’s expressive. You can tell, even though he’s humble, there’s a part of him that likes the limelight. You don’t step up and make a 70-year career being in front of camera if you don’t have some urge to transmit and be noticed. So we should say that he’s humble for a Hollywood actor.” - Mario Sikora [26:18]

“He’s incredibly prolific. He’s 91. He’s still going as of this recording. He just doesn’t seem to run out of stories to tell. He’s still transmitting.” - TJ Dawe [29:23]
