This is a summary of the characteristics of the Enneagram Type 1 personality (The Perfectionist) from our Wednesday night discussions.
Type 1 Brief Summary: (from http://www.enneagraminstitute.com/typeone.asp)
Ones are conscientious and ethical, with a strong sense of right and wrong. They are teachers, crusaders, and advocates for change: always striving to improve things, but afraid of making a mistake. Well-organized, orderly, and fastidious, they try to maintain high standards, but can slip into being critical and perfectionistic. They typically have problems with resentment and impatience.
At their Best: wise, discerning, realistic, and noble. Can be morally heroic.
