This is an Enneagram I have only recently come to. It is quite good and I need to purchase a copy. It shows how each of the nine personality types deal with the three prime centers of intelligence. The authors terms for the nine centers are: 1-Achiever, 2-Helper, 3-Succeeder, 4-Indiviualist, 5-Observre, 6-Guradian, 7-Dreamer, 8-confronter, 9-Preservationist. The preferred center for 2-3-4 is affective, for 5-6-7 it is theoretical, for 8-9-1 it is effective. But, the 3-6-9 repress their preferred center and dance betweeen the other two. There are secondary and third center. for the 2-4, 5-7, 8-1. (Secondary for 2 & 7 are effective, for 4 & 8 are theoretical, and for 5 & 1 are affective). The authors use Kaballah imagery for defining the the 'Divine Image'. The ransformational path for the 1 is to Pathfinder,for the 2 to Partner, for the 3 to Motivator, for the 4 to Builder, for the 5 to Explorer, for the 6 to Stabilizer, for the 7 to Illuminator, for the 8 to Philanthropist, for the 9 to Universalist. An intersting book that I need to reread. ( )

Hurley and Dobson explore how the wisdom of the Enneagram allows you to bring out the best in yourself and others. Delving deeper than other systems of personality exploration, the Enneagram system of nine distinctive patterns of unconscious motivation reveals the primary sources of our behavior and the reasons we live as we do.

Through detailed descriptions and discerning self-inventory questions, Hurley and Dobson make discovering your personality type fun and easy. They provide simple, proven methods for neutralizing negative attitudes about self and others and releasing untapped potential. Armed with the Enneagram's insights, readers learn to transform weaknesses into strengths, break free of crippling patterns, choose new ways of relating to others, and enjoy balance and harmony. For example:

The Achiever can move from dissatisfied perfectionism to effective leadership and become a Pathfinder.
The Observer can move from fear of commitment to curiosity and courage and become an Explorer.
The Helper can move from over-involvement in the lives of others to mutual relationships and become a Partner.

Inspirational, easy-to-use and practical -- What's My Type? puts the Enneagram system to work for you.
