A Day in the Life of an Enneagram 6: Jessi D.

A Day in the Life of an Enneagram 6: Jessi D.

How did you get introduced to the Enneagram? I got introduced to the Enneagram through my husband, Phil. He went to the “Know Your Number” training and realized (pretty easily) he is a 9. For me, it was lot harder to figure out my number. Phil and I...

A Day in the Life of an Enneagram 1: Monica M.

How did you get introduced to the Enneagram? I heard about it a few years ago from several friends, but I didn’t really get into it until I read The Road Back To You (most of it) by Ian Morgan Cron. What is it like being a 1? I mostly identify with a 1...
How to Use the Enneagram for Personal Growth

How to Use the Enneagram for Personal Growth

One of the things I’ve been thinking about lately is how to use the Enneagram as a tool in counseling, coaching, and personal growth. It has been incredibly helpful in my own work, and I’d like to lay out a model for how the Enneagram can be integrated into any...

The Enneagram and Inter-Type Movement

The Enneagram and Inter-Type Movement

One of the more interesting (and for me, confusing) parts of Enneagram theory involves inter-type movement. In other words, the lines on the Enneagram connecting the different points are meaningful and indicate where certain types go to in situations of either stress...
You Are Not Your Number

You Are Not Your Number

One of the most frustrating things about the Enneagram (for me) is when people use it to put themselves in a box. “Oh, I’m a 6, I can’t do that.” “That’s so typical for a 1.” “That’s just the way he is—he’s a 9.” And so on. Locked into Your Personality The whole point...

A Day in the Life of an Enneagram 4: Jenny M.

How did you get introduced to the Enneagram? I was introduced to the Enneagram through a Spiritual Direction Cohort about 9 years ago. In the cohort we learned how to sit with other people and hold space for them and for the divine. In order to do that to the best of...

A Day In the Life of an Enneagram 9: Phil D.

I’m going to periodically be doing a new blog series where I will interview someone about their experiences with the Enneagram. The goal is to help paint a picture about what it is like to be each number. My hope is that it will help you understand yourself and...
The Core Struggles of Each Enneagram Type

The Core Struggles of Each Enneagram Type

Sometimes people struggle to discover their Enneagram number. When this happens, one thing that can be helpful is to look at the core struggles for each type. Sometimes we are more in tune with our pain than our strengths. Here is a description of the core struggles...
The Enneagram and The Limits of the Golden Rule

The Enneagram and The Limits of the Golden Rule

We probably have all heard of the Golden Rule: “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.” You were probably taught this deep truth about morality at a young age. It’s foundational to most world religions and societies. Treat others how you would like to be...
