In 1868, Louisa May Alcott’s semi-autobiographical work, Little Women, captured the hearts of American readers, and continues to do so today. Whether you’ve come to Little Women through the novel, or one of it’s many film adaptations, the March sisters have become icons.
And since Alcott did such an excellent job creating these rich characters, they are excellent “test cases” for enneagram learning!
First things first… who was the best Jo March? You may choose from Winona Ryder, Saoirse Ronan, or Katherine Hepburn. We prefer to pretend the BBC never made that mini-series.
We thought Beth was probably a 9.
Meg… well… we were less sure about her. We are somewhere between a 2, a 3, and a 6.
Amy might be a 3, but we’re open to debate.
Lance and Kate are agreed, Jo March is a 4. All. Day. Long.
What about you? How would you type the March sisters?
What about Laurie/Teddy?
