Barack Obama, the Diplomat: Negotiates Like Second Skin


I wanted to add this on my Enneagram Life blog post again as I restart my blog. Many are talking about how President Obama can talk to leaders in Iran, (like he stated during the election, back in 2008). It's continues to be clear that Obama shows characteristics of the Enneagram 9 (Diplomat) with a strong wing of Type 1. When understanding these core basics to a particular typologyyou can reason on why a leadera president might  talk to leaders where roadblocks were always presence. I hope this helps you understand the path of  the Diplomat

This article first appeared on my Enneagram Examiner page  Dated March 2009 Note: Title has been changed from "Peacemaker to "Diplomat "to reflect my Enneagram terms. Copyright belongs to Adrienne Williams, Enneagram Life.

Barack Obama had a one-on-one interview with CNN’s GPS commentator Fareed Zakaria who asked him questions regarding international policywhich included the differences between factions of Islam. What would he do as president, if Osama Bin Laden was captured. Would he have peace talks with all nations (including China and Russia).
I continue to see the policies that will be Barack Obama’s legacy—bringing people together for the common good. Like the captain of a starship—by the named the fictional character John Luc Pacard on Star Trek. He was always negotiating for war torn nations about to do battle, unless a single voice of peace helped guide the two nations to settle their differences. John Luc Pacard was a diplomat,  a man willing to see both sides to help solve major issues. Barack Obama is also a diplomat -- who's core value is to be able to bring people together and heal conflicts.
