If an enneagram one pursues other type ones, they’ll find that they won’t get along if they don’t have the same views.
An enneagram type 1 is an Idealist, meaning they have high expectations for themself and others to do what is morally right. Like a two wing, they want to help others, but it’s in a way that usually aligns with their greater purpose.
Ones have a basic fear of making the wrong choice and try their hardest to avoid mistakes. An enneagram type 1 should work towards becoming more self accepting. They should understand that nobody, not even themselves, can always meet their high standards.

In the workplace, a one personality will be most happy in an environment that encourages them to follow their passions. As long as this enneagram is healthy they will thrive, however, unhealthy one personality types can become obsessive and over involved.
A one personality can do a great job motivating their peers in the work place as long as those around them put in an effort. If ones feel like they’re losing control and their direct reports are not motivated they will be unhappy.
As far as their love life goes, a one personality can be a very open and caring partner. The only issue is, they struggle to overlook their loved ones imperfections and struggle to hide their anger when mistakes are made.
