Enneagram Type Analysis: Michelle Richardson
I believe that out of all the types of the Enneagram Personality Types that Michelle Richardson best fits Type 3 the Achiever.
I do not think Michelle fits perfectly under this category; however, it is definitely the best one for her. Like Katie another Type 3 personality Michelle has a sense of drive about her striving for the perfect life and the perfect guy. Katie may have gone boyfriend to boyfriend while Michelle tried to make the one boyfriend she did have into perfection in her mind.
The desire for a Type 3 is to be appreciated and treated with value. Their biggest fear is to be seen as worthless or undesirable. Series 1 and Series 2 we see that Michelle is fighting a battle with herself and with her relationship with Tony. On one hand she is striving for perfection on the other hand she is striving to be treated with worth. She fights with Tony about him treating her as an equal oppose to a puppet to play. In Series 2 Tony loses some of himself due to an accident and Michelle reacts badly to it. Due to this fear of not being desired. Especially when Tony did not react to her advances.
Michelle is that girl who wants to be loved and adored. She wants to study and get an A on her Spanish exam. She wants that perfect guy. At the same time she is straightforward and will get in anyone’s face who questions her self-worth. Just ask Abigail.
These are the reasons that I see Michelle as at Type 3.
