The Enneagram system looks more complex than it is. Truth is, we all hold a little bit of each type within us. But one or two of these personality types are most prominent at our core. Our Enneagram type is the part of us that’s constant, never changing, and has always been who we really are. We’ve broken down each type, their most popular attributes, and the perfect sheets for them.
1. The Reformer
Ones tend to be rational, principled, and a bit of a perfectionist. This type values their integrity, order, and organization above all else. There’s no better sheet for this type than the Classic Percale in Solid White. With its luxurious feel and timeless look, it will never disappoint. It’s a serious fabric with the reliability to match. In white, it is clean, crisp, and always looks put together just like The Reformer.
2. The Helper
Twos are your favorite party host. They enjoy entertaining as long as they’ve got it all under control. They live for the affection they receive from their friends and family. Their altruism and empathy make them quite generous. The Helper loves love, which is why the Classic Percale in Rose is perfect for them. Its hotel-quality durability makes it perfect for whenever a mate needs to crash. In Rose, it’s warm, cozy, and romantic which is just about everything this type needs.
3. The Achiever
Threes are full of energy. They tend to be optimistic, ambitious, and charming. They’re very driven, even competitive at times. Ultimately, they strive to be good role models. The Achiever loves to look good, which is why the buttery soft, slightly luminous look and feel of our Luxe Sateen sheets will suit this type well. We recommend our Haze prints, in Blue or Rainbow, to match the high energy, positive vibes this type radiates.
4. The Individualist
Fours are creative introspects. They think deeply and passionately about the things that interest them. They can be a bit moody at times but only as a result of their sensitivity to the world around them. The Individualist loves exploration, which is why the worldly and effortless feel of our earthy Linen sheets are perfect for them. The artist in every Four will be well-wrapped our Kiwi or Honeydew tones.
5. The Investigator
Fives are curious. They’re very alert, insightful, and love learning. They love to stand up to complexity and approach challenges with strategy and innovation. While they’re quite perceptive, The Investigator can also be a bit serious and secretive. Our Classic Percale sheets will keep these overthinkers cool all night in the depth, drama, and mystique of our Deep Navy or Graphite hues.
6. The Loyalist
Sixes are not scared of commitment. They’re the best friend we all desire as they are always championing the ones they love. They thrive when they feel secure and trusted. But all the courage and sense of responsibility can lead to anxiousness when overwhelming. When being everyone’s shoulder to lean on becomes a bit much, The Loyalist needs a Weighted Comforter. Weighted comforters offer the feeling of security and protection that Sixes love.
7. The Enthusiast
Sevens are busy-bees. They tend to be extroverted optimists with a need to maintain their happiness at all times. With their playful spontaneity, they have no time to maintain a made bed. The undone elegance of linen would work best for them. They should probably opt for a two-tone situation, like Graphite Linen Duvet Cover on Haze Linen sheets, to keep their scattered interests satisfied.
8. The Challenger
Eights are confident. They’re powerful, assertive, and require a sense of dominance. These types are born leaders with quick-witted decisiveness. They love a bit of ego which is why a sheet as into itself as our Luxe Sateen sheets would keep any Challenger well-rested. Since they like to keep things straight-laced, a bold stripe pattern is best for them.
9. The Peacemaker
Nines are easy-going and agreeable. Their energy feels welcoming and reassuring. They strive for stability by avoiding confrontation. Effortlessness and harmony are all Peacemakers need to live their best lives. Linen in Cream matches this description perfectly. It’s a worry-free fabric that’s breathable and embracing in a soft and inviting color. Talk about peaceful sleep!
