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 many of 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. By providing an objective view of our strengths and weakness, the Enneagram allows us to accurately identify our path of ascent and awaken to our highest potential.
