    Enneagram, Acronyms, and Why We Are Like That

    Why are you the way you are?  Does this question get directed at you from those in your personal or professional sphere?  The Sound Bearier team opted to take personality tests and read our results.  The gold standard Big Five test.  The beloved Myers-Briggs type indicator. And the popular Enneagram. There are scores of others, but we tried these three.  
    Fortunately, our Matt Poole is steeped in psychology and personalities. Give it a listen and see if you recognize anyone or yourself.
