Our Enneagram Type is around 50% nature, and 50% nurture. Our genetic heritage is like a seed, and it evolves in permanent interaction with thousands of macro and micro experiences, that surround us from the womb onwards. Our environment, education, culture, they all determine to a deep extent the way in which the seed of our Type finally develops. The traits we want to accentuate, to show, the ones we try to hide or repress. The result is a singular combination of nature and nurture that makes each of us entirely unique and impossible to replicate.

The beauty of discovering the biological roots of our personality lies in the possibility of embracing the very essence of our potential, the distintive contribution of our type, within the wider frame of human evolution. Find out more at ninesapiens.com.
