Some people describe the Enneagram types as a map. Others describe them as a theory. Some people seem to use the two words interchangeably. There's a distinction here that I think is worth noting.
The Enneagram User Guide series of books introduces the core focus of the Enneagram personality types and uses that core focus to tie together the many concepts associated with the personality types. Additional projects and resources are planned along with the book series. Links and descriptions will be added below as resources are made available and the various projects progress.
- Quick Guide to the Enneagram: A Simple yet Comprehensive Introduction to the Personality Types
This book is a precursor to the Enneagram User Guide series. It offers a simple yet comprehensive introduction that covers the nine types, the variations of type (i.e., wings, instincts, and Tritype), and how other concepts and references tie into the system.
- Personality and Ego: Exploring the Core Focus of the Enneagram types
The first book in the Enneagram User Guide series is now available. It describes the internal focus of each personality type and reinterprets the ego-types (fixations, holy ideas, traps, passions, and virtues) through that focus.
- Enneagram Tests
Three tests are currently available to help determine type preference, type with wing, and Tritype with wings, The type preference test is the most recent test. It was created for readers of the Personality and Ego book and incorporates the core focus of each type introduced in that book.
