The Difference Between Enneagram Type 3 and Type 7

Jul 12, 2022


The Enneagram Type 3 is known as the Achiever, the Performer, or the Role- Model, striving to feel outstanding, accomplished, and successful. 

The Enneagram Type 7 is known as the Multi-tasker or the Enthusiast, striving to feel excited, satisfied, and fulfilled. 



These two types are common "look-alikes" that can get confused by their energetic personalities, future focus, forward moving energy, and positive outlook on life. They both love a good plan, but for different reasons, and both can juggle multiple projects and can get bored easily.

  • effort around focusing 
  • motives behind planning 
  • relationship with options and limits 
  • ability to see a project through 
  • core driver behind their job or business
