In this episode of the Awareness to Action Enneagram podcast, Mario Sikora, María José Munita and Seth "Creek" Creekmore continue their discussion about the six qualities of the mind, describing the fluid mind, the discerning mind and the conducting mind. They also discuss how these qualities of the mind inform emotional intelligence and how we interact with the world.

“The fluid mind is more… this is where you hold the tensions of opposites and you allow two things to be true and inform you.” -Creek [05:59]

“Our emotions always point to something. Emotions are not random. They’re not purposeless. They’re a mechanism that has evolved over time to indicate an issue of some sort. Either something we need to be aware of because it’s dangerous or an opportunity.” -Mario [07:58]

The Enneagram can show us how we might be biased in particular ways.” -María José [12:44]
