Why would I spend so much time and energy writing Enneagram-related blogs about BTS, the K-pop musical group from South Korea? People have asked me this question, almost in disbelief. Why would an Enneagram teacher of nearly thirty years, the author of nine Enneagram books, an organizational consultant who uses the Enneagram extensively, and a consistent blog writer since 2009 focus so much time and energy on BTS? The best answer I can give is I did this because I wanted to, without any particular reason or purpose to justify the time I’ve spent. I love their music. I have huge respect for t ..read more

Part of the series explores the Enneagram type of  J-Hope, BTS’s main dancer, rapper, sub vocalist who is also songwriter, record producer and a member of the prestigious Korea Music Copyright Association. He began as a well-known street dancer prior joining BTS, then became highly skilled as a vocalist, a rap artist and so forth. Jung Hoseok (J-Hope aka Hobi) Enneagram Seven | The “Joyful” person Although this is still speculative, I think Hoseok is an Enneagram Seven. Online, people who wrote about his type came to the same conclusion. Why does Enneagram Seven seem like a good match f ..read more

Part 9 focuses on BTS member Jung Kook. He is their main vocalist, sub-rapper, lead dancer, and their center. Center is a position where they appear in the front middle during performances and is considered the highest performance position. The person is chosen as center because they are either the main singer, the main dancer, the most popular member and/or have “stage presence.” He joined BTS as its youngest member at the age of 13 (US age; 15 Korean age). He also writes and produces music and earned full membership with the Korea Music Copyright Association (2024). In searching online for ..read more

Part 8 focuses on BTS member Suga. He is the lead rapper, composer, and producer. He joined Big Hit Entertainment with the understanding he’d be a producer, would only have to rap and wouldn’t have to dance. But dance he does as a BTS member. He also writes and produces for musical groups outside BTS. In January 2018, he earned full membership with the Korea Music Copyright Association. Min Yoongi (Suga aka Agust D) Enneagram Five | The “Wise” Person I think Yoongi, aka by his solo name as a rapper Agust D, is an Enneagram Five, as do most people who made comments online about his type. Thes ..read more

Part 7 focuses on BTS member Kim Taehyung. He is one of three younger band members, known as the maknae group. He is a lead dancer, vocalist and visual; visual means member(s) who most closely match the Korean beauty ideal. Kim Taehyung (V) Enneagram Four | The “Unique” Person From what I read, almost everyone who has typed Tae Hyung thinks he is an Enneagram Four, and I would agree that Four is his most likely Enneagram type. However, I doubt that people who guessed his type actually know him and, of course, I don’t either. What I found particularly interesting about him is that his behavio ..read more

Part 6 focuses on BTS member Jimin. He is one of three younger band members and was the last to join the group. Before he joined BTS, he was already an accomplished contemporary dancer. He has since been their main dancer and lead vocalist, having learned vocals after joining the group. Park Jimin (Jimin) Enneagram Two | The “Loving” Person I think Jimin is most likely an Enneagram Two, as do most people online who know or think they know the Enneagram. The perceptions of others, of course, does not determine your Enneagram type. At the same time, it is intriguing that whether in Korean, Eng ..read more

Part 5 focuses on Kim Namjoon (stage name RM), the first BST member, BTS’ team leader, and main rapper. He is also an accomplished composer and music producer, having written or co-written most of BTS’ music from the beginning and a member of the prestigious Korea Music Copyright Association. I start the blogs about BTS member’s Enneagram types with Kim Namjoon (RM) for many reasons. First, he is the BTS member for whom I could find the largest quantity of relevant information. Why such an abundance of information about Namjoon? First, he is the BTS leader and has been from their start; peop ..read more

Why I am even writing about BTS member’s Enneagram types? There are several reasons I am even writing blogs on BTS members’ types, particularly in light of the fact that I fully believe we can’t accurately type other people. We don’t know what really occurs within them, and Enneagram type is about the inner dynamics of thinking, feeling, and behaving and is most closely linked to a person’s motivational structure. In addition, I also believe and teach that typing someone we don’t know, and especially public figures, is problematic because what we think they may be like from how they appear i ..read more

BTS and the Enneagram: Basic Instincts Part 3 It is in the one-to-one instinctual area where BTS has flourished. The one-to-one instinct  focuses on individuals in relation to one other person, affection, intimacy, bonding and attraction. This instinct is also referred to as the intimacy or sexual instinct. This instinct also involves emotionality, often intense emotionality. As BTS often says at the start of their performances, but also at interspersed moments, “Let’s go!” Intimacy Intimacy between BTS members The seven BTS members got to know each other from an early age, initially sh ..read more

It is the social instinctual arena where BTS has made its musical mark far beyond South Korea and innovated and prospered. The social instinct includes issues related to belonging, community, groups and teams, social relationships, and influence, but also inclusivity, social justice, social intelligence, the use of concepts, and overall coherence. BTS flourishes in all of these, so what can we learn from them? In this blog, I am triangulating my BTS knowledge with my three decades gaining Enneagram expertise, but also my nearly four decades as a behavioral scientist. BTS as a team Teaming is ..read more
