Why Enneagram 9’s Struggle to Find Their Perfect Career

9’s are pretty good at helping other people make decisions.

But when the time comes to decide something for your own life?

Bring on the overwhelm and uncertainty.

Enneagram 9’s may have similar struggles when it comes to figuring out what they want in life.

Perhaps due to your people-pleasing tendencies, you don’t want to make the “wrong” choice and disappoint your friends and family.
