If You're An Enneagram Type 1, Here Is The City You Should Move To

While, according to Truity, the actual numbers don't mean anything and are not in any specific order, the perfectionist side of an Enneagram type 1 probably loves the idea that they come first. Known as the "Perfectionist" or "The Reformer," type 1s are characterized by their high standards, need for order, and the inner desire to always be good, per Truity.


For an Enneagram type 1, a life with purpose is the ultimate goal. These strong personalities make up some of the biggest, most successful names of our time. In fact, according to The Enneagram Institute, everyone from Michelle Obama and Nelson Mendala to Plato and Confucius are considered type 1s. Some of our favorite celebrities also share this Enneagram, including Meryl Streep, Harrison Ford, and Helen Hunt.

With such a perfectionist mindset, finding a place to live can be a struggle. If you are looking to make a change, here's the city you should move to.

Enneagram type 1s should move to a global hub

According to Truity, Enneagram type 1s are always looking for the best of the best, not only for themselves but for their surroundings as well. If you are a type 1, you are likely a hard worker with a strong drive to do things right. Because of this, it's important to surround yourself with likeminded people in a place that evokes that same perfectionism you crave. According to Her Campus, consider a move to Singapore. While this may be out of your comfort zone, Singapore is the ultimate city for a Type 1. It is advanced in all areas and a hub for everything from healthcare to finance — making it easy for you to succeed in your career of choice.


Plus, the city has strict rules, and because of that, it is super clean and very low in crime. As someone who thrives on rules, this is the ideal situation for you.

If you aren't ready to move, here's where a type 1 should travel

You may already have the perfect life where you currently live and with your inflexible nature, per Truity, you are unlikely to take a big leap and move. Still, even a perfectionist needs a vacation from time to time. If you are ready to take a break from your rigid lifestyle, the ultimate place for a type 1 to travel is Rome, per Round Trip Blog.


Rome is a city of beauty and influence and with its long history, it is known for its guidance to other places around the world, similar to the way you are with the people in your life. Another great spot to travel, per Ashley Abroad, is Chiang Mai in Thailand. According to The Enneagram Institute, you have an innate desire to improve the world. Chiang Mai is known for its philanthropic spirit and volunteer opportunities, making this a vacation with a purpose — the perfect mix for a type 1.
