Each Enneagram Type and Instinctual Type has its own unique vocabulary and way of conversing, which when understood, can be very revealing. Enhance your typing skills and learn how to recognize the distinct language of type. Discover what the 9 Types and 3 Instinctual Types say about themselves on the Enneastyle Questionnaire. Learn which images, words and phrases the types prefer to use and why they consider them critical to their self-image.

Which type frequently says `it depends’? Which instinct uses the word `soul’? Which tritype says they avoid `negative people’? Which type uses the word `loving’ the most? Which type uses the word tasteful?

The answers to these questions may surprise you. The way the types describe themselves represents their `internal’ experience of type, which can be very different from the `external’ expression of type. A person’s behavior can give us clues as to his or her potential type but how someone speaks and his or her preferred vocabulary is far more illuminating.

This is a multi-media presentation with interactive exercises. The findings are based on diverse studies conducted over 22 years with thousands of international participants, Enneastyle Questionnaires, typing interviews, and in-depth coaching sessions.
