“But is it Real?” A Review of Research on the Enneagram

One of the most common questions I am asked when introducing people to the Enneagram goes something along the lines of: "Yes, but is it real? What scientific evidence is there?" It was exactly that question that prompted me to do my PhD research a few years ago. I could see the Enneagram worked for me but I wanted [...]

A Comparison of the Nine Enneagram Personality Styles and Theodore Millons’ Eight Personality Patterns

There are several congenial correlations between the nine styles of the Enneagram and the eight personality patterns proposed by Theodore Millon, Ph.D. (1969) who is an influential personality theorist, personality and clinical test developer, and a member of the task force that formulated one of the earliest versions of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders published by [...]

Thomas Merton – Another Look at Enneagram Type

Abstract: Thomas Merton is a world-renowned writer and much beloved figure who has served as exemplar and guide to generations of American Catholics and to contemplatives of all faiths. In Enneagram circles, the conventional wisdom is that Merton is Type Four. Grounded in Don Richard Riso's and Russ Hudson's Insight ApproachTM to the Enneagram of Personality, my master's thesis, [...]

A New Old School Of Human Growth And Permanent Reeducation

Editor's note: This article is actually two articles. The first is a personal history by Prof. Alaor Passos on his fascinating experiences and journey of self-discovery in Chile and his native Brazil in the 1960s and 70s as he navigated the political currents of the time. The second is by Dr. Claudio Naranjo, who should need no introduction to [...]

Towards an Integral Enneagram

Abstract: In this article I consider how mistyping can happen by looking at the issue through the lenses of Ken Wilber's Integral Model of A.Q.A.L.A.L.A.S.A.T. (All Quadrants, All Levels, All Lines, All States, All Types). Recognizing that the best that any model can be is "true and partial", and thus all models should be held lightly, I briefly describe [...]

The Enneagram and Schulz Von Thun’s Psychology of Differential Communication

Abstract: What would it mean to you if you were to realize that two different personality systems in different languages were independently developed at different times in different cultures? And that they came to very similar results about their archetypal insights. What would this mean as a confirmation for both typologies, that know nothing of each other and what [...]

Exploring Enneagram Tritype(TM): Theory And Practice

Abstract: When theory building for a system like the Enneagram, it is important to base new distinctions on a solid empirical and practical foundation. With the breadth of fine distinctions already built into Enneagram theory, it seemed that most avenues of distinction had been fleshed out. However, upon working with a multitude of clients, a fascinating pattern emerged. Research [...]

The American Myth of Progress: An Enneagram Perspective

Abstract: The Enneagram and depth psychology inform each other in this analysis of American culture, and together they provide a richer view of the cultural psyche of the U.S. than either field could do alone. Utilizing archival material from depth psychologists and mythologists, the author suggests that the United States operates under a collective "myth of progress," and explores [...]

Sex, Love and Your Personality – The Nine Faces of Intimacy

My first impression of Mona Coates was at an IEA conference some years back. I did not attend her workshop myself, but was in the room next to the one where she held her workshop. I deeply regretted not having joined her workshop, which I later found out was on the Enneagram and relationships. The workshop that I was [...]
