What is the Enneagram?
The Enneagram is a powerful mapping system that illuminates the nine different architectures of the human personality. It is also the most profound and practical system available for increasing emotional intelligence, with insights that can be used for personal and professional development.
The Enneagram’s exact history is uncertain, although the system first appeared in both Asia and the Middle East several thousand years ago or longer. Since that time, it has evolved in various parts of the world, and three individuals have heavily influenced its modern usage: G.I. Gurdjieff in the 1930s in Europe; Oscar Ichazo in the 1950s in South America; and Claudio Naranjo, an American psychiatrist born in Chile in the 1970s.
The word Enneagram comes from the Greek words ennea (“nine”) and gram (“something written or drawn”) and refers to the nine points on the Enneagram symbol. The nine different Enneagram types, identified as numbers One through Nine, reflect distinct habits of thinking, feeling, and behaving, with each type connected to a unique path of development. Each of us has only one place, or number, on the Enneagram. While our Enneagram type remains the same throughout our lifetime, the characteristics of our type may either soften or become more pronounced as we grow and develop.
How can it help me?
The Enneagram is cross-cultural and highly accurate, with many personal and work-related applications. At home, you can use the Enneagram to become more self-accepting and to understand and relate more effectively to your family and friends. At work, you can use the Enneagram to improve communication, prevent conflict, make better decisions, develop teams, enhance leadership skills, and more.
How does the Enneagram differ from other systems?
There are several different personality systems currently used to support growth and development. While the Enneagram is the oldest of these systems, dating back several thousand years, it is also the most recent addition to the systems and models being used. The Enneagram is a deep, powerful, profound, and highly accurate map of the human character structure that emphasizes in-depth development activities for each Enneagram Type.
What is the impact of using the Enneagram?
Fundamentally, the Enneagram helps you develop greater self-awareness and self-acceptance and to take personal responsibility for your behavior. Using the Enneagram as a guide, you can actually change specific patterns of thinking, feeling, and behaving because it provides specific development activities tailored to each Enneagram type. As a result, your development time is spent more efficiently and the results are clear and long-lasting.
In addition, the Enneagram helps you develop insight and compassion for others, and it shows you how to enhance your relationships. You’ll learn how others think, feel and behave, what motivates them and drives their behavior, and how to engage with them most effectively. At work, you can use the Enneagram to enhance your communication skills, reduce conflict with and interact more effectively with others, increase your leadership skills, work better on teams, and more.
