The concept of having not just one, but three primary Enneagram types, referred to as your `Trifix’ was first introduced by Ichazo and has been extensively researched by Enneagram Explorations. Each Enneagram type represents a strategy to negotiate life, relationships and work.Although one is your preferred strategy, acting as the CEO, you also use the strategies of two other types in a repeated descending order. This order is what is known as your Trifix. Your three primary Enneagram types will always occur one in each center: head (5,6,7), heart (2,3,4) and gut (8,9,1).

After years of research, through interviews, coaching and statistical analysis of thousands of tests and questionnaires, we have found that identifying your Trifix is essential for personal growth and developing critical self-awareness. It also helps to explain why individuals of the same Type and Instinctual Subtype can be so different from one another.

This interactive workshop will introduce our latest research findings on the Trifix. With the use of visual aids and group participation, it will focus on how we repeatedly use the same three types in the same preferred order to insure our survival.Attendees will determine their own Trifix during the workshop using our Enneacards Trifix Test.
