Welcome to our series dedicated to answering the question; Do I need to post photos of myself all the time to be successful online?
Answer no. 5: IT DEPENDS ON YOUR VISIBILITY PERSONALITY.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What’s your visibility personality? It’s the way you naturally shine and the way you naturally hide. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Inside our signature program Women Speaking Up, we use the lens of the enneagram to get a better handle on this because the enneagram is such an incredible tool for self-awareness. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
In addition to being introverted or extraverted, we all have different, core motivations for being visible. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Some of us want to be: ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
〰️ respected or admired, ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
〰️ appreciated for our uniqueness,⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
〰️ admired for our knowledge,⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
〰️ seen as a great team player,⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
〰️ appreciated for the experiences we offer,⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
〰️ known as a leader, ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
〰️ appreciated for our harmonising or ‘chilled’ energy,⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
〰️ seen as an activist or social justice warrior.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
A lot of the ‘influencer’ action on social media reflects the 3 on the enneagram; the inner motivation that searches for respect, that wants people to see how successful they are. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
And that speaks strongly to 3 customers. They LOVE all the images of luxury and glamour and possibility. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
And the people who pull off that kind of feed best are 3s. If you’re not a 3 it’s important not to fall into the trap of thinking that’s how you ‘have’ to show up online. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Better to learn your natural ways of being visible and lean into them instead. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
