So, what DO Arnold Schwarzenegger and Oprah Winfrey have in
common, both being Enneagram type Threes?
All Threes organize their lives around achieving goals so that they can gain recognition and
admiration from others. Whatever occupation Threes do they want to be recognized as one of the
best at what they do (if not the best!), even if they are a homemaker, a monk or a nun! Threes
truly believe they will be successful at whatever they attempt so consequently they usually are.
Threes seem to be born with many of the qualities that naturally lead to success – selfconfidence,
drive, ambition, determination, a goal focus, efficient industriousness, persistence,
charm, charisma, personality, tact and the ability to network and market themselves in an
appealing way. Doesn’t that sound like both Arnold Schwarzenegger and Oprah Winfrey?
Threes can have either a Two wing or a Four wing. Arnold Schwarzenegger is a Three
with a Two wing and Oprah Winfrey is a Three with a Four wing. If, after clicking on the
previous links, you feel that you are more of a Three with a strong Two wing, look at what
Enneagram type Twos need for career satisfaction as well. If you feel you are more of a Three
with a strong Four wing, look at what Enneagram type Fours need for career satisfaction as well.
Average to unhealthy Threes can be workaholics because they are so motivated
by the need for personal recognition and admiration. Imagine that your self-worth, your whole
sense of identity even, was wrapped up in being successful in your career (and every other aspect
of life too, actually)! What might that cause some Threes to do? Some might be so driven to
succeed at all costs that they become overly competitive, opportunistic, unprincipled and
deceptive. They might lie to impress people about how successful they are when they really
aren’t. They cut corners at work to save time and money. They might create a product or
market themselves with the necessary skills or expertise to do the job.
Healthy Threes are motivated by the need to live up to their own potential. They follow their
heart and do what they love so often serve as paragons and exemplars of authenticity and innerdirectedness.
Healthy Threes set an example for others of optimum human potential. Examples
of healthy Threes are Jack Canfield, Joe Montana, Deepak Chopra, Anthony Robbins, Brian
Tracy, Dale Carnegie, Zig Ziglar, Michael Jordan, Ben Kinsley, Barbra Streisand, Denzel
Washington, Bill Clinton, Christopher Reeve, Rachel Ray and Jimmy Carter.
