The Enneagram is a personality typing system associated to numbers, 1-9. This systems goal is to allows individuals to understand how we interpret and manage our emotions based on our perspective; we will refer to this as “core beliefs.” This system dates back to 4,500 years ago, however it was brought to the states in the 1960’s where it has been used dominantly in modern psychology rather than it’s primitive uses in religion.
Understanding your own Enneagram as well as your partners allows us to see behavior that may or may not be serving their core beliefs. Based off of these core beliefs an individual may be more motivation to choose a certain action and/or direct them to make particular decisions. This science can put reason behind behavior that may or may not benefit the individual’s relationships. Allowing for opportunities for personal development and providing a foundation for self-perception and of others.
