According to the teachings of the Enneagram, there are three basic ways of thinking: the emotional mind, the intellectual mind and the instinctive mind, which corresponds to the center of the heart, head and body. Mediator or peacemaker - is the ninth type of personality, instinctive, which is run by the center of the body.

The "nines" strikingly developed intuition. From childhood dream of the ideal, so loving relationship with a partner for them is paramount in the scale of values.
Mediators seek rapprochement with others spiritually and physically, because it frees them from the inner emptiness. However, they are valued and loneliness, because it restores the integrity of their nature. In dealing with people fawning can be replaced by absolute contempt. Resellers can become very assertive. Often avoid responsibility for themselves, while condemning others and external circumstances.
