This site provides information and resources for the Enneagram personality types and more specifically for the Enneagram User Guide books. The Enneagram User Guide series of books introduce a core focus for each Enneagram type. The core focus organizes and shapes the type's view of the world and the response to that view. It's out of this core focus that various personality patterns and characteristics arise.
There are five books expected in the Enneagram User Guide series.
- Quick Guide to the Enneagram (published November 2017)
For those wanting a quick overview of the many pieces of the Enneagram types and how those pieces fit together.
- Personality and Ego (published November 2017)
For those trying to understand the internal experience of each type and the ego mechanisms that perpetuate that experience.
- Personality Profiles (expected late spring/early summer 2018)
For those looking for the key personality characteristics of each of the nine types and the core focus driving those characteristics.
- Personality Variations (expected late summer/early fall 2018)
For those exploring the many variations of and influences upon the basic nine types as created by such concepts as the wings, instincts, Tritype, and connecting points (a.k.a. stress/security points, directions of integration/disintegration).
- Decoding the Enneagram (expected late fall/early winter 2018-2019)
For those wishing to use the Enneagram symbol to gain further insight into the types and concepts arising from the symbol (e.g., centers of intelligence, various triadic groupings, the inner lines, etc.).
