Publisher's Summary

The enneagram is one of the methods of introspection widely used today. It was developed at the beginning of the 20th century by the mystical philosopher George Gurdjieff and later developed in the 1960s by psychologist Claudio Naranho. The enneagram proved to be a clear way to present nine personality types, selected on the basis of careful observation of human behavior. Our psychological and spiritual development is symbolically represented in it like a star with nine rays - "tendencies" acting in each of us.

To determine the type prevailing in you, you need to answer only one test question. The method is based on the hypothesis that our personality is built around a single basic fear that comes from childhood. Behind this apparent simplicity, in reality, many nuances are hidden: We carry in ourselves the features of each of the personality types represented on the enneagram. That is why some of us recognize ourselves (to one degree or another) in several portraits at once.

It should be borne in mind that the enneagram is not a way of classifying people or labeling, so many psychologists do not use the names of personality types and prefer to limit themselves to numbers: "type 1", "type 2", etc. Also, not all psychologists recognize the enneagram by the scientific method, but in our opinion, it is interesting to get to know it.

To build your enneagram, answer the test question. Choose the answer that best fits you. Do not hurry. Avoid any ratings, both positive and negative. You may seem close to several options at once. This is natural, since each of us has different qualities. It is important to find out which of them prevails in you. If you are undecided, you can choose three options. For convenience, write these options on paper, ranging in order from the most significant to the less important. Go back to the test question and mark your first option - in the first test result (corresponding to the most significant fear for you) your "main" personality type will be indicated. Then mark your second and third options, these results are your "minor" types. Knowing the number of your enneatype, you will be able to better relate with others, and be a better you.

After working on yourself, then you will be able to work on others around you, and integrate into their lives to for a better society as a whole.

Sounds good?

All of these are pretty true, and this audiobook shows you that, and more....

Not just for marriages!

If you're looking for one book to buy on the Enneagram, buy this one. Of the 7 different books I've read, this is easily the most relationship-based, Gospel-centered (if you care), practical guide I've read on the Enneagram. "The Road Back to You" and "The Path Between Us" are wonderful primers and relationship guides, but "Becoming Us" combines them in a way that makes it so accessible and practical.

You are more than your number

Now let's get to the book. Becoming Us is going to change lives and help marriages. I have absolutely no doubt about it. Beth and Jeff have written a book that not only tells the reader about their own history and marriage, but gives an easy-to-understand explanation of the Enneagram and each type.

Total game changer for marriages everywhere

I didn’t know a book could make that big of a difference. By understanding myself and understanding my husband better now and vice versa for him, we are able to work through differences easier and quicker.

A Book We Will Reference for Years to Come

I first used the Enneagram in a work setting about 12 years ago. I was immediately captivated by the way it brought our team together, provided us with a common vocabulary, and gave us all insight into one another.

One of the best books on the Enneagram

I followed up "The Road Back to You" with this one and found it incredibly helpful in our relationship with one another and others. We've done a lot of personality typing tests, and it just feels like this is more accurate than any of the others. Very practical information on how different Enneagram types interact with one another. Highly recommend it!

This book captures that and I highly recommend it!

What an approachable, insightful, and transforming book about how to understand your Enneagram number and how that impacts your most significant relationships. Even if you are new to the Enneagram, the introduction alone offers a brief but deep overview that will help you identify your number and then take an even deeper dive into how your number functions in community with others.

Clear and insightful

I just finished this book and I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a clear, simple and insightful book on the Enneagram. Author uses stories to illustrate the timeless wisdom of the Enneagram. Her descriptions go beyond a static personality typing system and dive into the unique ways that we move within the Enneagram during times of stress and security.
