The Enneagram – Certification, Training, Events, & Books

The ENNEAGRAM (nine points) is a personality system that presents a useful template or map for understanding ourselves, the important people in our life, and the groups we work with. It describes nine ways of processing and responding to the world– a full spectrum of personality styles. We view the world through lenses which either bring great clarity or various degrees of distortion to our vision. The Enneagram enables us to look at our lenses instead of just looking through them.

  • The Enneagram works like a psychological/spiritual lens check.
  • It sorts out the encouraging and discouraging voices in our head.
  • It helps us grasp our inner motivations and drives.

To learn more about this fascinating system and how it applies to you:

Enneagram Spectrum of Personality Styles

by Jerome Wagner, Ph.D.
Intended for a general audience, this thorough yet brief guide through the Enneagram system provides a clear common sense outline of each of the nine styles. The resourceful characteristics and ideals of each style are contrasted with their non-resourceful idealizations. For example the Good Person’s passion for excellence can become a maladaptive pursuit of perfectionism. The adaptive energy, or virtue, of each style is contrasted with its maladaptive energy, or vice.
