The office is one of the greatest TV show comedies ever created. If you have watched it, then you can agree that it deserves to be ranked high on any list. Such a big part of the show’s comedy comes from the unique characteristics that each of the people who work at Dunder Mifflin display and how situations unfold as they interact and clash. To better understand each of the characters, we need to look at their Enneagram number.
The Enneagram is a psychological tool used to help and model people’s personalities to see how well they may perform specific tasks or interact with different people. If you want a deeper look at more sitcom characters, you should check out our Best to Worst Friends characters list.
Michael Scott is number 7 on the Enneagram. He has an introverted personality, which is part of the reason that makes him run into trouble with people because his decisions are largely based on his self-beliefs and values.
Jim’s character shows he is number 3 on the Enneagram. Number 3s are known to be ambitious. One can see this in Jim’s dedication to his career despite being a fun-loving person. He wouldn’t let his career suffer for his fun personality.
Number 8 on the Enneagram, Dwight has an extroverted personality. He always shows strong opinions and thoughts on matters. He is also slow to anger. This explains why he was able to put up with Jim’s shortcomings in the show. Another strength he has is he is quite energetic.
Pam’s personality in the show is easy to figure. She has an introverted feeling as a primary function and extroverted feeling like a secondary function. Her introverted feeling compels her to adhere to a certain routine and resist change. This is the central part of her personality. Her extroverted personality allows her to act as a mediator in the office, which is why she rolls fine with everyone. This trait manifests when she easily calms Michael down during his manic episodes, and even befriends Dwight, earning the title of his “best friend” by the end of the series. She is the number 9 on the Enneagram.
