Book Overview

The first definitive guide to using the wisdom of the enneagram for spiritual and psychological growth

The ancient symbol of the Enneagram has become one of today's most popular systems for self-understanding, based on nine distinct personality types. Now, two of the world's foremost Enneagram authorities introduce a powerful new way to use the Enneagram as a tool for personal transformation and development. Whatever your spiritual background, the Enneagram shows how you can overcome your inner barriers, realize your unique gifts and strengths, and discover your deepest direction in life.

The Wisdom of the Enneagram includes:

Two highly accurate questionnaires for determining your type
Vivid individual profiles focused on maximizing each type's potential and minimizing predictable pitfalls
Spiritual Jump Starts, Wake-Up Calls, and Red Flags for each type
Dozens of individualized exercises and practical strategies for letting go of troublesome habits, improving relationships, and increasing inner freedom
Revealing insights into the deepest motivations, fears, and desires of each type

Highly accessible, yet filled with sophisticated concepts and techniques found nowhere else, The Wisdom of the Enneagram is a strikingly new fusion of psychology and spirituality. It offers an exciting vision of human possibility and a clear map of the nine paths to our highest self-expression.

   Personality: from disorders to enlightenment
I have finally learned about the Enneagram. The instinct for care- givers, go- getters, and individualists is shame rather than sadness was missing for me. It gives a scale for how each type progresses. Neuroscience supports the personality types. We value where your attention is directed. The brain likes to focus on anger, shame and fear. If you want to understand personality from disorders to enlightenment, you should read this book or learn about the Enneagram.

   Insightful and gives advice re. how to grow
The author's website has some of the material, but the book contains a lot more. I liked the suggestions for how to grow. It feels rather humiliation when my weaknesses are exposed. I'm familiar with other psychological types, but the enneagram is different, it seems to cut deeper, and for me it feels a bit overwhelming, but what do I do about it? The book addresses that question and it is one of the best.

   This was the best Enneagram 101 book for me.
The road back to you is the first recommendation. After forcefully stating not to type others, it's disingenuous use of typing others renders testimony questionable. This fact distracted me so much that I didn't gain anything from it. The Wisdom of the Enneagram provides a concise, well organized, foundation from which one may begin to build a deeper understanding of themselves as well as their interactions with others. I'm type 5.

   Rich resource for people who actually want to do the work
The best resources for people who want to do the work that the Enneagram is designed to help with. This resource is really appreciated. The Enneagram is a hot fad right now and many people will never fully dive into the work of schluffing the mask of persona We use our number as an excuse for behavior. The book istransformational. It challenges me to find presence because it strips me of my go to excuses and excesses. It's terrible. Such good stuff. This book is a long time friend. It is recommended to everyone that asks.

   Fully featured introduction into The Enneagram of Personality
It's very useful if used. Richard Rohr mentioned the use of an Enneagram in his book Falling Upward. I was intrigued. I looked it up, bought the book, typed my personality using the Enneagram method, and then filled out a 140 question assessment online at a recommended website. Good insight into personality type. The Enneagram of Personality is used in both business and spiritual contexts to gain insight into workplace dynamics. It is often presented as a path to higher states of being, essence, and enlightenment in spirituality. It has been described as a method for self- development.

   Best of the Enneagram Books
I think this is the best of the books, and I' ve read about 10. This is a textbook example of an enneagram. It's the most thorough, getting into the different levels. They lay out and present the content in a more organized way. Useful diagrams need to be omitted as well. The Enneagram of personality can help you better understand yourself and others. It's great to understand where you' re at and what it takes for you to be in your element, so to speak, being a healthy, confident, effective and helpful person in the world. It helps you reach your full potential.

   This is the best book out there on the Enneagram that I have ...
This is the best book I' ve read on the Enneagram. The descriptions of each type are thorough and helpful, as well as some great suggestions and guides to get to a more healthy level. The book goes beyond just the types and is my favorite part. The details of the instinctual variant, the subtypes, and the wings are included. This is the book you need if you want a complete and comprehensive book on the Enneagram.
