Type 3 (“The Achiever”)

The performer is the third personality type of the Enneagram theory, aka Type 3. Typically, type threes are self-assured, charming, ambitious, competent and energetic.

They are referred to as “performers” or “achievers” because they are highly driven for advancement and are concerned with what others think of them. Due to this, type threes can sometimes be overly competitive.
