The Enneagram

Introduction to the Enneagram

The Enneagram of Personality is a dynamic personality typing system based on the observation of human behavior. It outlines nine different personality types with each type operating out of a mix of both natural gifts and developed defensive strategies. Once these gifts and defensive strategies are recognized, self-awareness and behavioral choice increase. The areas of life where these changes can take place are numerous resulting in increased success and satisfaction.
