The Enneagram is a dynamic map of human personality that reveals how we organize experience and find meaning in our lives. It describes nine distinct patterns of attitude and behavior and reveals the reasons why we think and behave the way we do. Using knowledge of the nine personality styles of the Enneagram provides a foundation for a better understanding of ourselves and promotes healthy relationships by understanding the needs and perspectives of all those we encounter.
The Enneagram symbol is a circle with nine points connected in a distinctive pattern of intersecting lines. It is an ancient symbol that describes a path of self-development. Within each Type are healthy, average, and unhealthy patterns, and no one Type is better than any other.
The Enneagram Institute of Ohio offers seminars, master classes, consultation, spiritual direction, retreats, and personal coaching services to help people use the Enneagram for personal and professional development. We work with individuals and couples who recognize a desire for deeper meaning in their lives as well as people in business settings, and non profit organizations interested in leadership education. The overarching purpose is to promote more effective ways of working that are built on a deep and compassionate understanding of human nature.
How do I figure out my Enneagram Personality type?
Discovering our personality type is an illuminating experience and a major step towards liberating ourselves from our habitual patterns of behavior. One method for discovering your type is looking at the type descriptors below. Another option is to take the questionnaire using the link to the right and read the descriptions of the two or three types which have the highest scores to identify the one you most relate to. We would invite you schedule an appointment with us or attend a workshop for further assistance in understanding your type and the challenges and gifts it has to offer. A third option is to read the Riso/ Hudson Wisdom of the Enneagram book.
