Abstract: This article presents a snapshot of a family in crisis and the author’s spontaneous intervention. It deconstructs the intervention and the father’s perceived personality type through the lens of the Enneagram Personality Typing System. It introduces a hypothesis about why the intervention was effective from the vantage of this system with comments about common transference and counter/transference relationships. A side bar with brief comments about each of the nine Enneagram types in therapy is included.
