Stress in the World of an Enneagram 9

Hello, My name is Vicki and I am a 9. :) This sounds funny, but if you are familiar with the Enneagram, you know just what I mean. The thing is, though, they say 9s are sloths. Hmm...not sure I like that. Don’t get me wrong - sloths are super cute. In fact, I have had the privilege of petting…
