Everyone has a unique personality, and things tend to get complicated when we try to combine our unique personality with our partner’s unique personality. The better we can understand personality types, the better we can relate with others. Listen to today’s show to better understand the different personality types, and how they can interact.

In this episode with Nate & Kaley Klemp, we discuss relationship advice topics that include:

  • How understanding personality types can help you extend empathy to your partner
  • The 9 personality types according the the Enneagram model
  • Understanding the personality patterns of yourself and your partner
  • How to cultivate radical generosity toward your partner
  • Creating more empathy in your relationship
  • And much more!
