Jamie Fraser (from Outlander)

Enneagram Type 7 and fictional characters

Jamie is highly adaptable and always ready for the next adventure. He leads with his head, as all sevens do. His intuition is a great example of the complicated way a seven relates to people. Sevens are feelings repressed, but extremely quick thinkers. They think and act quite efficiently when they aren’t getting distracted. Feelings get left out in the cold.

The enneagram type seven is known for entertaining. Jamie does this with his sense of humor (which is one of the things that Claire loves about him). His ease of character allows him to be who he needs to be in any given group or situation.

Jamie is a friend to all. “The more the merrier,” is his mentality. He is beloved by his comrades because he treats them with respect. Everyone is valuable.

However, the visionary force of a type seven is hard to stop. When they are determined, nothing can get in their way, and they can sometimes lack empathy. When limits are pressed upon them, they push back with great stubbornness, as we see frequently with Jamie’s character.

Type sevens also have a way of spinning things optimistically and anticipating the future. No matter what is going on, a seven can reframe it in a positive light in order to digest the situation better. This type doesn’t want to feel boxed in or controlled, and will do almost anything to avoid this. Instead of feeling great pain, sevens use their incredible headspace to either avoid or view it in a different light.

Captain Jack Sparrow (Pirates of the Caribbean)

Even though Jack Sparrow is a deceiving, thieving pirate, there is just something likable about him. His charisma, charm, and humor draw us in the way a type seven naturally does. He is nothing if not entertaining. Jack loves a well played trick, or joke especially when he’s the last one laughing.

Sevens also can’t get enough of life…

This can be interpreted in several ways. Living forever is the ultimate dream, as is part of the theme of the famous pirate. He also brings an intensity of spirit, wanting to enjoy all the things worth living for.

Furthermore, type sevens are known for their ability to think quickly, using wit whenever possible. Jack Sparrow uses this super power to get out of many sticky and dangerous situations. He would rather negotiate using his mind than risk physically fighting.

This brings us to another point. Sevens classically avoid pain. Usually physical pain is not the problem, it’s that twisted tormenting emotional pain they can’t stand. This is what makes sevens feel slippery. When there is pressure, attempted control, or force of any kind put on them emotionally, they find a way out.

Type sevens, like Jack, are constantly moving on to the next thing. They are both easily distracted and easily delighted. “Ooh… something fun and shiny is over there, let’s go that way!” Or “ahh, this is the most delicious drink I have ever tasted… life is bliss.” This focus on the future is also a way to avoid feeling the present.

What do sevens value most?

Freedom

“Wherever we want to go, we go. That’s what a ship is, you know. It’s not just a keel and a hull and a deck and sails. That’s what a ship needs. But what a ship is… what the Black Pearl really is… is freedom”

-Jack Sparrow

Enneagram type sevens love possibilities. They are grand visionaries, and adventurers. Jack Sparrow gives us a nice glimpse at what this type might look like as a character.
