Why find out your Enneagram Type?
How could a number describing personality make a difference to my life? Aren’t I more or less the same as everyone else? Well the answers to these questions may surprise you, at least that’s how we hope you will feel after engaging with the Enneagram. In essence, this map of human conditioning is about uncovering unconscious, habitual patterns that we run or perhaps more accurately put, run us. As we discover our particular personality type, the Enneagram gives us a road map as to how we can work these patterns into better shape – in other words, how we can get psychologically healthier and express more of our innate potential.

The word Enneagram comes from the Greek words ennea (nin) and gram (points/what is written or drawn). It refers to the nin different Enneagram styles, identified as the numbers 1 to 9. Each number represents a worldview and archetype that resonates with the way in which people think, fell, and act, and how they stand in relation to the world, others, and themselves. Each Enneagram type has its advantages— its bright sides, as well as its disadvantages—or shadow sides. Within each type, an individual may function at a very healthy level, or operate at an unhealthy level. Understanding your own patterns help you be more aware of the ways in which you will operate, especially when not awake and aware. Without awareness, your type may “run the show” and your behaviors and thinking may be on auto-pilot. The power of the Enneagram lies in our ability to be aware of our patterns and to be in choice.
