Publisher's Summary

Why does my boss act that way? Why did I do that?

If you have wondered why you sometimes do things against your best interests or why some people can be so utterly baffling at times, the Enneagrams can provide answers. Are you more of a Helper, a Perfectionist, or one of seven other interconnected personality types? 

Some people use an understanding of Enneagrams to improve business or personal interactions. Others use it to facilitate spiritual growth. This valuable explanation of the Enneagrams can help you discover your skills, strengths, and weaknesses so that you can focus your improvement efforts precisely. 

Whether your interest lies in the practical or the spiritual, this book offers everything you need to understand and put the concept into practice. The book:

  • Explains this personality theory 
  • Devotes a chapter to each of the nine types of personality in this model of the human psyche 
  • Provides a link for taking the Enneagram test for free online and a description of the test 
  • Gives you a summary of the types and subtypes
  • Explains how the Enneagram differs from the Myer-Briggs test 

While Enneagram may seem like a strange word, "Ennea" comes for the Greek word for "nine" - the concept is simple, so don’t worry that you need a degree in psychology to understand it. 

Buy the book today to start understanding personality types immediately!

If you are into the Enneagram, this audiobook is so detailed! I had mistyped myself and got some serious clarity with the sub-types and how to work for improvement to my specific sub-type.

This book serves as more of a reference

This book serves as more of a reference than one you'd sit down and listen all the way through, but has already been immensely helpful in helping me sort through issues in current relationships with other numbers.

The author does a particularly thorough job

The author does a particularly thorough job of discussing the three instinctual variants for each type, which I think is more useful than other books which only focus on wings.

this is a great choice

I've listen most of the Enneagram books out there, and this is one of the best. It's probably a little too dense as an introduction to the Enneagram, but if you're familiar with it and want to dive in deeper, this is a great choice.

the book helpful but exactly engaging.

As other reviewers mentioned, this is not a book for those unfamiliar with the Enneagram. I specifically bought this book for the extra detail, in particular regarding subtypes. Overall, I found the book helpful but exactly engaging.

Best information I've ever listen

It's one thing to finally figure out who you are and another to then have a notion about how to take the weaknesses in your personality type and begin to transform. Best information I've ever listen for helping me understand myself and others.

It has very detailed analyses of each type

Now for my actual review! This is a great "textbook" for those exploring the Enneagram. It has very detailed analyses of each type, with additional information about instinctual variants that I found truly helpful.

It gives you words to solidify your hopes, motivations, and fears, and helps identify practical areas of growth based on you function differently than others. So worth it!!

the Enneagram is a great tool for self-discovery

First: if you are unfamiliar with the Enneagram, buy this book!! Strange symbols and language aside, the Enneagram is a great tool for self-discovery and understanding, and totally changed my life.

Overall, an excellent listen and purchase!

I especially appreciated her examination of the subtypes, which she explains in great detail, and her explanation of the counter-types. Overall, an excellent listen and purchase!
