The clue answers are:

LINGERS, AGNES, REALIST, ERASING, ERG, STEALING, RESIGN:
7-segment display with clues answered

Now,

if we look at all the answers with an A in them, they trace out a number 4! Similarly, the I answers trace out a 3...

In fact, every letter traces a unique digit from 1 to 9. Ordered by this digit, the letters spell out TRIANGLES.
