What is behind your reactivity? What are the knee-jerk reactions that drive your behavior underneath the surface? In this episode, Beatrice Chestnut and Uranio Paes teach us about the unconscious behaviors that we develop to protect ourselves in childhood. Each type manifests this differently, resulting in nine different defense mechanisms. For any student of the Enneagram, this holds the key to much of our journey toward self-awareness.
