Performer / Achiever
People of Enneatype THREE are ambitious achievers, motivated by a desire to accomplish and succeed at whatever they attempt. Accomplishment requires drive, and Threes have it in spades – extending themselves with efficiency, competency, and ubiquitous to-do lists.
Threes are natural leaders and encouragers: they want the very best for themselves and usually consider it important to be aspirational for others. They set an example of poised productivity and are often admired for their cheerful tenacity.
Threes spend much of their energy focusing on their image and are concerned with how they (and their achievements) appear to others. This pervasive drive to succeed in the eyes of others can result in a tendency to push aside time-consuming feelings resulting in a disconnect with self and others.
