Nines are defined by their desire to maintain a sense of inner peace and harmony, and to avoid conflict or other emotional disturbances. They are typically agreeable, calm, and easy to be around.

Nines rarely rock the boat, but they can be stubborn. While they typically go with the flow, they dislike being controlled and will respond with passive resistance if pushed too far.

They are also known as the peacemaker or the mediator. Enneagram Type 9 make up approximately 13% of the population. 

Core Motivation

Due to their utter dislike for conflicts, one thing a Type Nine would always aspire to is to be able to maintain things as they are. Why? Because any changes might lead to unfriendly situations, which would demand being assertive, and that is something a Type Nine never wants to deal with. So if it involves safe, undoubtedly living in harmony with others, you can count a Type Nine in.

Desires & Needs

A lot of peace, stability and harmony and then some more. That is what Type Nines desire all the time. Their core desire is to achieve inner peace and the people they care about to be happy. They believe in emphasizing the good life and making sure that those around them have it. While they just focus on the simple pleasures that life has to offer.


Type nines do not do well when they are abandoned, and they are afraid of separation from everything that brings them peace. This is one of the fears they live with. As a result, they can try to compensate and maybe ward this off by trying to make everyone happy.

Communication Style

The Peacemaker seeks to gain goodwill or favour and reduce hostility, so his speaking style tends to be conciliatory. Type Nines are so accommodating in their speeches that sometimes, they might have trouble getting to the point.
