What’s Your Disney Princess Enneagram?
Find out which Disney princess perfectly matches your enneagram type.
We love a good personality quiz here at Wishes and Wayfinding. Enneagrams have gained popularity in recent years and have replaced Myers-Briggs as THE personality quiz to take. So we decided to match each Enneagram to a Disney princess to help you understand your results.
Type One: The Reformer
Ones have a “sense of mission” that leads them to want to improve the world, even at the cost of great personal sacrifice. Many Ones are leaders from the history books who left their families behind to go to war or become activists. Ones are not necessarily logical, but they have conviction in doing what they believe is right. They are people who rely on their intuition to move toward their goals despite any outside resistance.
Ones are most like Moana. When she sees that her island is dying, she takes it upon herself to restore the heart of Te Fiti. Her family tells her it is dangerous to go in the water and beyond the reef, but she feels called to it. She doesn’t just want happiness where she is, but greater happiness for herself and her people. And that requires her to step up and make some changes.
Type Two: The Helper
Twos are warm, kind, and generous. They are motivated by their love for others and ensuring they are at their best — even if this comes at their own expense. They tend to be caretakers and never want anyone to feel unwanted, because at their root they feel that they are unloved. Twos want to be shown that they are needed and that their efforts are valued.
Twos are most like Cinderella. Even though her step-sisters and stepmother treat her terribly, her main concern is making sure they have everything they could ever need. In fact, it makes her happy and gives her a sense of purpose. If ever there was a type to remind us to “have courage and be kind,” it is an Enneagram Two.
Type Three: The Achiever
Threes are optimistic and natural-born leaders. They know what they want and they work hard to get it! They are often workaholics and appear like they don’t care about anyone but themselves. However, they are just self-aware and focused on their goals. If anything, they care too much! At their best, they are self-assured and charming. At their worst, they can be deeply self-conscious as they fear failure.
Threes are most like Tiana. She is working herself to the bone with multiple jobs, all so she can open up her restaurant and finally feel like she made it. She sacrifices a social and romantic life to focus on her professional goals. She’s almost there!! Those her age look down on her because she can’t seem to have a little fun. But her true strength comes when she realizes that loving others and being loved in return can help her on her path to success.
Type Four: The Individualist
Fours are sensitive souls. They are honest and creative, but can also be moody and withdrawn. Fours often keep their true selves hidden for fear of being judged. Ordinary life bores a Four, and they never feel like they fit in with the rest. They desire the ability to live as they are — whether that is with self-indulgence or self-pity.
Fours are most like Elsa. She stays in her room, hiding her powers from her staff, her kingdom, and even her sister. When she assumes the throne, she doesn’t feel like she is capable of fulfilling her duties, and she ends up running away to her “ice palace for one,” where she can literally and metaphorically let it go. She knows she will never be a naturally-suited queen, and when she hears the spirits calling, she knows her interests lie far beyond the kingdom.
Type Five: The Investigator
Fives are insightful and curious. They can get lost in tasks and ruminate on ideas for hours. They are not necessarily lonely, just more introverted and independent. Others may believe Fives are antisocial or detached, but they are really just innovative and curious, and see the world as it could be, not as it is. They absorb knowledge and fantasy in abundance, and often foster change as a result.
Fives are most like Belle. She never concerns herself with Gaston because he can’t get on her level. She is perfectly content living at home with Papa and curling up with a good book. Her imagination and dreams of adventure are far more interesting than a provincial town stuck in its ways of insane asylums and forced marriages. People may think Belle is a “funny girl,” but she truly is ahead of her time.
Type Six: The Loyalist
Sixes are savvy individuals who put lots of trust in others. They believe they may not be able to handle life’s challenges on their own, so they rely on what they know. This could come by way of family structures, friends’ opinions, or the guidance of a mentor. They hang onto their established relationships in times of stress until they can think clearly for themselves. Once they do that, they never look back.
Sixes are most like Rapunzel. She only knows what Mother Gothel tells her, and because she is her mother and she loves her, Rapunzel believes everything she says is true. This forces her to stifle her intuition, and stay in her tower. But then she finds Flynn, who she confides in and eventually trusts to take her to see the floating lights. Through him, she realizes that Mother Gothel has taken advantage of her. It’s then that she decides to never let Gothel touch her hair again.
Type Seven: The Enthusiast
Sevens are enthusiastic and spontaneous. There is so much of the world they want to see and they approach life like an overly-excited child. They have a tendency to spread themselves thin with their talents and passions, as they constantly want to pursue a new adventure. At their best, they are joyful and optimistic souls you love to be around. At their worst, they can be impatient and impulsive.
Sevens are most like Ariel. She is constantly going off to find more thingamabobs for her collection all while being the star singer in her family’s choir. Once she discovers humans, she wants to be part of their world. She literally signs away her voice for the opportunity to get legs and live as a human for a few days. That’s crazy to some, but not for her. She is fun-loving and unique, and that’s what draws Prince Eric to her, and other people to Sevens.
Type Eight: The Challenger
Eights are strong and assertive. They want control in all aspects of their life. They refuse to give in to social norms, or be in debt to anyone. While sometimes this is self-motivated, they can also inspire others to take action too. Eights can struggle to allow themselves to be vulnerable as their greatest fear is having people hurt or use them, so this can isolate them from forming strong attachments.
Eights are most like Merida. She wants to shoot for her own hand, and decide her own fate. She doesn’t want a husband to rule, and she knows she could handle the responsibility of being queen on her own. Merida perceives her mother to be judgemental and controlling, but her mother just wants what’s best for her and that’s why they are often at odds. In the end, her mother sees Merida’s strength and uniqueness as what will make her a great leader.
Type Nine: The Peacemaker
Nines are extremely supportive, and will often do whatever they can to avoid disagreements or confrontation. They crave harmony in all aspects of their lives, and just want themselves and those around them to be happy. Nines will sometimes ignore issues or concerns just so they don’t have to think about them. At their best, they are wholly accepting of others, and at their worst, they are ridiculously stubborn.
Nines are most like Princess Aurora. Since she was raised in isolation and is an only child, she has an innate desire to keep things happy and carefree. She just wants to sing and frolic in the woods with her animal friends. At the same time, when she is told she is a princess and she is engaged to be married to a prince, she only wants to marry the man she met in the woods. Luckily for her, Phillip is both the prince and the man from the woods, so she avoids conflict and gets her happily ever after.
