Publisher's Summary

Have you ever wished you had a guidebook that would help you understand people in your life? Or get caught up wondering what makes your colleagues, partner, or child tick? Or yearn to understand what they are really feeling? Do you need a gateway to becoming more self-aware?

Stop wasting your time searching for solutions, for you’re in luck! There is such a thing called the enneagram that tackles all this!

In essence, this concept describes the structure and dynamics of nine personality types that branch out into paths to a more integrated and rewarding life as it presents other ways of how one may perceive and behave in the world. This doesn’t by definition put us in a box but helps us see the box from another point of view outside our limited perspective. Undoubtedly, each type of personality has its own strength.

Challenges can arise when this so-called strength is overused, which causes our weaknesses to surface, and our point of views becomes rigid, which results with us getting caught up in automatic habits. By recognizing, adjusting, and compensating for these unconscious patterns, we can live more satisfying lives, enjoy healthier relationships, and connect to our true core.

Through this understanding, you are able to experience your life through an authentic expression of self in a way that honors your highest good and the highest good of those around you.

Tina Madison, a well-known psychologist and researcher, has been using this powerful tool during her entire career to help many people transform the quality of their work, family, and intimate relationships - and to deepen their understanding of themselves.

In Enneagram: #1 Made Easy Guide to the 9 Type of Personalities, the author will guide you step-by-step in a wise and deep explanation, showing you all the different facets and possible interpretation of these concepts in your life more practically.

Briefly, in this audiobook you will learn:

  • What enneagram really is and how you should approach it.
  • Identify your personality type with the enneagram test.
  • Develop a deep sense of self-awareness through a crystalline identification of your personality traits.
  • Highlights opportunities for further growth and gives you a strong idea on what needs to happen in order for you to experience a better side of you.
  • A wise explanation and interpretation of the enneagram’s nine working personalities.
  • And much more.

No two people were made to be the same, and therefore, no two approaches should be the same, either. Through this secret and proven guide, you will learn what identifies you as a unique individual and how you can use this information to highlight your individuality and experience your best life possible as a result.

It provided a good basis for all.

This book explains a very complex subject in a very simple way without insulting your intelligence. My family enjoyed getting into the act as well. It provided a good basis for us to get a cursory understanding of different personalities and the way they react to situations differently. If you enjoy this book, the Enneagram Institute website provides more in-depth ways to explore personality types.

It really helps...

It helped me to realize some things about myself that I could work on. Not “overly spiritualized” but has the perfect balance of spirituality and practicality.

Fantastic book.

Personally I'm not into listening books that try to tell you who you are based on your personality. That said it does a good job explaining itself. My personal problem with this kind of thing is that I could ascertain this idea of self for myself, without needing to label it. If you like having labels you can label your personality.

It is clearly explained and easy to listen.

This book did exactly what I wanted it to; it let me find out my Enneagram type with a minimum of fuss. It is clearly explained and easy to listen, and easy to follow the steps to determine your type. I wouldn't recommend the Kindle edition for first-time listen, as the process for determining your type involves a lot of flipping back and forth between sections of the book, which would be much easier with the physical book.

Very interesting to listen.

Very interesting to listen. I wish I could have the chance to listen it some years ago, it would be much helpful. At my age, I found the personal development part is quite too long as I knew it all already.

This is a helpful book.

This is a helpful resource for self-discovery using the Enneagram using the Narrative typing system (rather than a standard assessment). It also provides mindfulness and application practices for growth.

It’s a very good starting point.

The author explains the whole concept of the Enneagram in a very informative and loving way. It’s a very good starting point for the so needed work we all need to start within ourselves.

Such a valuable.

Such a valuable, practical resource in a world of watered-down enneagram clutter. Chris’s passion for getting to work and truly using the enneagram as a tool to connect to God and one another is so important.

Thank you for such a powerful tool!

This book has given me peace in ways I could have never imagined. It has helped me to understand who I am and why. It has taught me to love others in a way they need to be loved. It has increased my prayer life by defining how I need to pray. I will also lead my work team and get better business results as they understand the Enneagram. Thank you for such a powerful tool!
