The Enneagram is a rich and helpful study of human personality. It combines spiritual and psychological insights that describe both the strengths and challenges of different personality types. I can recommend it as a worthwhile study for anyone seeking growth and personal development.
The system describes nine personality styles along with the strengths and challenges of each. The styles are based on the dominance of different centers of influence and temperament that shape personality. The centers of influence are the head, heart and gut, or thinking, feeling and doing. The temperaments are assertive, withdrawn and compliant styles. Given these centers of influence and temperaments there are three head styles, three heart styles and three gut styles.
