Enneagram Type 7 - The Opportunistic Explorer

Type 7 Cat


The human version of Enneagram personality type 7 is popularly called the enthusiast, the epicure, or the joyful person. Typical characteristics focus on exploring interesting possibilities, avoiding limitations and pain, and what's next.

The cat version at WhatKittyWants.com we call the Opportunistic Explorer. Here's how that two word label might specifically apply to cats.

Opportunistic - taking advantage of opportunities a situation has to offer.

  • curious about new things and places
  • takes advantage of opportunities as they present themselves
  • doesn't like to be told no or limited

Explorer - curious, inquisitive, adventurous, looking forward to possibilities, etc.

  • looks for stimulation and excitement
  • can become bored with routine or sameness
  • quick to move on to the next thing that comes along

While the Opportunistic Explorer can be curious and playful, there can be a tendency to get into things they shouldn't and rebel against being limited or restricted.
