Episode 61: Defense Mechanisms & the Enneagram w/ Lisa Vischer

Our identity is precious, and therefore demands defending. But sometimes we end up defending the wrong thing.

Jesse and Lindsey are again joined by Enneagram coach Lisa Vischer to talk about the specific tactics we use to defend our false Ego Identity. Lisa first walks through each Type’s Defense Mechanism, and then gives each Type a specific question to help move out of defense and into resting in our true identity in Christ.

Lisa and Lindsey also face off in Your Worst Nightmare, where Lisa shocks everyone with her views on potluck dinners. Then everyone answers listener questions about Defense Mechanisms.

This episode is part 2 of 2. Hear the first part of the conversation in Episode #60.
