The Enneagram of Personality
The Enneagram is a popular, spiritualist personality test. It contends that there are nine personality types, each of which have distinctive characteristics. These characteristics can be used to gain self-awareness or a deeper understanding of others.
The Enneagram differs from other forms of personality assessment in its spirituality. Each of the nine categories that the Enneagram defines have a variety of traits. These traits include: ego fixation, holy idea, basic fear, basic desire, temptation, vice and virtue. We’ll look at each of the nine categories in more detail below.

This model of personality is much more spiritual than other models of personality. While it’s not for us, and it’s not been validated, we’ve included it here because we know that others might connect with it.
In general, we have problems with a wide range of personality assessments. From a personality assessment perspective, the one model we consider worth using is the empirically based “big five” model.
Our Podcast is a great way to learn more about hundreds of fascinating topics from around the world of work.
