The Enneagram of Personality is a model of the human psyche which is principally understood and taught as a typology of nine interconnected personality types. The types are subdivided into groups of 3s, representing those dominant in the body, the heart, and the mind. Each type has 2 arrows pointing out to other types representing the path of growth and the path of stress. The idea is that each person has a default type and their personality shifts to one of the other types if they are experiencing stress or growth. Each type also has 2 adjacent types and some theories assign a "wing" to each type, which then in turn would link to 2 additional types under stress and growth. There are also theories that each person has 2 wings, which if true, would offer paths for any person to embody any of the 9 types depending on the circumstances that they find themselves.
You are encouraged to take this test or a similar test that will supposedly determine your Enneagram type:
How much validity do you think the Enneagram has? Is there scientific validity to this? How does this system compare with other personality typologies such as the Myers-Briggs and the Big 5?
