  1. Book Riot Community

    Personality Types is the most comprehensive outline of the Enneagram personality theory I ve seen akin to Lenore Thomson s treatment of Myers Briggs Personality Type An Owner s Manual in scope and depth Riso and Hudson waded through the long history and collective knowledge of the Enneagram from disparate cultures and assimilated it into one cohesive theory I ve read a bit about the Enneagram in the past and I approached this book with a huge amount of skepticism about its veracity To my own sur [...]

    Interesting read 3.5 4 dang wish they had.5 in some of these Labels 1 The Reformer 2 The Helper 3 The Motivator4 The Individualist5 The Investigator6 The Loyalist7 The Enthusiast 8 The Leader 9 The Peacemaker I thought some parts of this book had merit And other parts had a horoscope feeling attached to it After reading each personality type This book then breaks down and makes adjustments to the basic type This is referred as The Wing or the other side of the basic personality Know then thyself [...]

    this book has taught me to see the world through many different kinds of perspectives it allows me to enhance my strong feelings of sympathy empathy because i can better understand where and why people are coming from, whether it is a place of fear or anxiety, or just a need for things to be a certain way so they feel comfortable in the world it is an invaluable tool to learn to ACCEPT people for who they are.

    I was initially skeptical of the whole enneagram thing, worried it was one of those pop spirituality trends a la The Secret, kinda like Zodiac Lite meets the Myers Briggs test instead of 12 signs, there are 9 personality types Turns out, it s not weird or boring at all Rather, this book gives an insightful and illuminating rundown of the ways different personality types process information and emotions, the various ways we think about ourselves and navigate the world In the chapter about my type [...]

    I ve read studied Myers Briggs please understand me for over 20 years, so was delighted this book incorporated ties to that but took it to another level of personal growth and development no human fits neatly into 16 boxes like Myers Briggs dictates, something that I have never fully embraced as I tended to conclude folks are compilations of several of the 16 boxes 20% of one, 50% of another, etc basically defining their own identity However, the principles in this personality book are less rigi [...]

    Experience has shown that personalities may be grouped into various major categories, and for purposes of studying them this is a helpful device Classifications must never be taken too seriously they ruin much thinking but the fear to use them has prevented much thinking Karl A Menninger, The Human MindThe above quote would find a lot of people in the world in open disagreement Even in the US, where different social needs and anxieties gave birth to almost all forms of typology developed today, [...]

    Decent read that goes in depth into Enneagram types Could have been even simpler though in terms of identifying the basic core fears of each type but it has complete write ups of each Enneagram type in various stages of health and disintegration, which is useful I pegged most of my family and friends quite easily as a result The Core Fears Simplified Core fear agitated, aggression.Core 1 fear of being corrupt Strive for perfection Agitation you re an idiot, pushing you away.Core 2 fear of being [...]

    Wow If you have a desire to understand who you are, what drives you, and why, this is a powerful book For self understanding, I can t think of anything better It changed my life when I first discovered this gem Meyers and Briggs have nothing on Riso and Hudson when it comes to support for self understanding My wife and I, for instance, knowing the Types we are, are able to understand the specific challenges we face within our marriage and why, and what we need to do to overcome those challenges.

    El libro es muy detallado y no ahonda en especulaciones amateur en las que entran otros libros que tratan de hablar sobre personalidad.Es muy bueno porque, adem s de describir a cada personalidad, describe cu l es el origen infantil de cada una.Este libro es el primero que le sobre eneagrama y fue, sin lugar a dudas, el que me provoc un profundo inter s sobre el tema deform mi cabeza al respecto.

  10. Ármin Scipiades

    I m such a Type Four poster boy it hurts _So, first off, I like personality type systems, they re good tools for self reflection, and there s a neatness about the concept that attracts me This is an unpleasant book It s unpleasant, at least it s unpleasant for me, to read my type descriptions and see my faults and fears and base desires in all their disgusting glory It was like so many punches in the belly, I kid you not Enlightening on some level, but still unpleasant Same with the descriptions [...]

    This book and the MBTI in depth helped me to understand other people on a level that I never thought to be possible The distinction between healthy, average, and unhealthy s of each type was very helpful When I read this book I could see myself at different times in the different levels of health of my Enneagram type and it was extremely enlightening.Those who found Carl Jung s personality test or MBTI confusing, Enneagram is easier to comprehend and specific Amazing, amazing book.

  12. Audrey

    Although my study of the Enneagram is limited to listening to a set of tapes and reading two books, I would consider this book to be a comprehensive study of each of the nine types Although a couple of the chapters were theoretical and read like a text book and therefore didn t catch my attention, I found the information for each of the types to be quite helpful in learning to discover oneself and to recognize how one could move towards being healthy by moving in the direction of integration.I [...]

  13. Dawn

    This book has some really useful insights into personality, fears, desires, motivations, and parental relationships It can be quite complicated and takes a lot of reading to attain the information on your personality type Also doing the typing is not straight forward However, the information is worth having and has resulted in some deep thinking for me It has helped me understand what areas of my personality I need to address in order to improve my life.I didn t like how negative the tone of the [...]

    I saw a friend mention this book on social media and the idea intrigued me so I checked it out After reading it I am greatly interested in learning about the enneagram for it seems incredibly useful I drove my wife quite nuts talking about the whole thing I ended up adding 3 4 books to my wishlist on this topic.At the same time, I honestly did not read every word of the book I skimmed each chapter to get a quick grasp on the personality type I eagerly wanted to get to the chapters I thought I [...]

    I don t like to over rely on personality tests, but this book gives the singularly best descriptions of people and is dead on accurate than any other personality book I ve ever read Even if you are skeptical, this book is extremely interesting Anyone that s interested in Jungian Archetypal personality psychology would likely find this book enjoyable It s great to turn to and look through the pages to place new people you meet.

  16. Charles Dean

    Probably my most favorite Enneagram book so far The distinction between healthy, average, and unhealthy expressions of each type is so helpful.

  17. Merenwen Inglorion

    This is great for character profiling which is the main reason I bought this , and includes handy charts showing the various levels of descent typical to each personality type There are also sections explaining the different sub types of the personalities and how certain sub types get along.A handy resource for writers fairly accurate for personal use as well I accidentally found my own personality type, and helpful tips for curbing changing some of my negative tendencies D

  18. Karen

    This book went too far into the details for me I got lost in the weeds I did not read the whole book I read the intro and most closing chapters, the overview of each type, and the whole chapter for my main and wing types I feel like I have gotten from internet blurbs about the system than this amount of detail I didn t even know this system existed until right before I read this book.

  19. Neocortext

    Great dynamic system that formalizes and develops a lot of historical and modern thinking about personality and mental health Read it the first time about twenty years ago, but it didn t really stick back then Super interesting now, though much complex and nuanced way to think about the influences of situation and context on character than something like MBTI, and useful in that it places emphasis on growth rather than mere pigeonholing That said, 5w6, yo.

  20. Cassandra

    Very interesting stuff I think I ve determined my personality type I m taking a course soon that will provide explanation and insight, maybe I ll think differently after that It feels to me like the book barely scratches the surface.

  21. Megan Ericson

    I love this Enneagram book because it offers detailed descriptions of the different levels of your personality when healthy a goal to shoot for You can get an idea of the best possible operating scenario for your personality, which gives me a great amount of peace and hope.

  22. Kristin

    Audiobook Completely Revised 2017 edition Comprehensive info Goes very in depth into each type with each wing and then 9 levels of health for each type Can get overwhelming and a bit freaky as they degrade Was hoping for info on how to help each type grow towards health Maybe I missed it at the end Maybe that is the subject of another book.

  23. Clay Teller

    Looks like the new agey books I usually disregard, but I have rather enjoyed it and found it to be very insightful I ve learned much about myself and relating to others.

  24. GlacierGrizzly

    Very dry reading It s mainly all about the facts, which is nice But YAWN during the parts you already know.

  25. Quails Magpies

    I find the Enneagram beautiful because its types are fluid rather than fixed I am able to identify traits from all 9 types in myself I am primarily Type 4 I realize that most of my interpersonal conflicts in the past involved Type 3 people excessively competitive and Type 6 people excessively us versus them I learn that we must love trust ourselves and accept ourselves for who we are truly are before we can love trust other people genuinely and deeply I suppose that Singapore is of a Type 6 tha [...]

    The Enneagram is 9 personality types Once you know your type, you will gradually begin to understand your unhealthy side and what motivates you to do the things you do Enneagrams also help you to understand your friends and family once you figure out their types so that you can understand what motivates them as well I believe that if you fully understand the 9 personality types, you could almost predict how someone will react to something you do or say Have fun with Astrology, but get to know an [...]

  27. Linz

    This is a great, comprehensive book for deep understanding of the Enneagram s 9 core personality types It offers in depth descriptions of each personality, with approximately 30 pages dedicated to each type, describing 9 different levels of health Along with those thorough descriptions, there are advanced guidelines, history of the Enneagram, and guidelines on how to use it Unlike many personality typing systems, the nice thing about the Enneagram is that it doesn t pin a person s behavior down [...]

  28. Ning Xin

    A very detailed and comprehensive book on the Enneagram incredibly helpful for all who are interested in it and or want to find out their type Having searched the internet for the past 2 3 years for articles on the Enneagram and hung around PC, INTJf, INFJs, INTP Central, Typology Central and etc to read the discussions on it, I must say that this book really sums up most of the posts I ve seen.Apart from the lengthy descriptions of the 9 Types, I particularly liked the section where it linked t [...]

  29. Mark

    I took the Enneagram via a job selection process and never did I know the payoff would be so much than a mere job I developed my own sense of spirituality and need for it via reading this and came objectively as well as subjectively face to face with the potential horror of my own self This is not a book of rainbows and candy canes seeking to portray a sugar coated feel good ra ra of the various types Quite the contrary, it chronicles our motivating fears and the ways these fears typically plag [...]

  30. Jonathan

    If you re ever curious about what motivates people to behave and respond in different manners this system of personality typification is an interesting alternative to the Jung, Freud, and others out there When you ve read enough of this stuff you come to realize that most are the same, they just call it something different.Still, I like Riso s approach for the most part No book is the be all, end all of personality traits but this books is fun and interesting to read if you have an open mind A f [...]
