The Enneagram

The Enneagram

For Stacy and Joann and all you curious folks out there -- this is the most incredibly deep system I've ever encountered, even though at the surface it seems just light-weight as "What color are you?" and "What tree are you?"

This isn't like that.

For a quick introduction: Enneagram Introduction and Research. There are links to the Riso-Hudson Test(s) (one free, one not), etc. And one of these days I'll have have a section on recommended reading as well.

Also, don't get hung up on the "labels" they put on them. Like "The Enthusiast," "The Perfectionist" etc. Everyone who uses it has a different "name" for all the numbers to make it easy for people to relate to... I find it very limiting and, as some practitioners do, choose to use the numbers alone.

So, when you get a chance... let me know what you think...
