Episode At A Glance:

This week on The SavvyCast, Enneagram expert Jordan Jones and his mom Twyla Jones are back for another part of our Enneagram series! In previous episodes, Jordan explains how the Enneagram is comprised of nine “types,” and how to identify which type you are. Jordan believes that the best way for people to learn about the Enneagram types is to hear from that type themselves. In this episode, Jordan interviews Twyla, who is a type one. Their conversation is full of helpful insights into the mind of a “one.” Whether you fall into the type one or have a loved one who does, Jordan and Twyla’s conversation will leave you with a much richer understanding of this type!
