Publisher's Summary

Do you deeply look for ways to better understand yourself as a person and the other people around you? Do you want help to figure out who you are and why you seem to be stuck in the same old path? Do you really want to understand the deepest secrets of how humans are wired and how to access the true self of yourself and other people?

If you answered yes to at least one of the questions above, this audiobook is made for exactly you. You may have already heard of a system to describe and group people into different personality types with astonishing accuracy.

The ancient enneagram has become one of today's most popular systems for self-understanding and understanding others, based on nine distinct personality types.

The authors thus concluded that once you have found your personality type, you can rely on it for potentially your whole life. Besides, they compared the validity of the enneagram descriptions with scientific measures from Millon and Myers-Briggs.

Yet again, the enneagram proves to describe a person astonishingly well and provide a lot of value for the user.

Therefore, the skill to truly understand the power of the ancient symbol can be of enormous value for you, even in the 21st century.

In The Enneagram of Personality you’ll discover:

  • Why these nine distinct personality traits can change your whole life forever.
  • The exact functions of every type to become more aware of yourself and cure negative thoughts through a deep understanding of your true nature.
  • The in-depth material about the different levels to become aware of a person’s fears, desires, and inner compass.
  • How these five little-known aspects of personality relate directly to the enneagram and make life way easier for the person who understands them.
  • Why these specific tests can tell you precisely what type you are combined with the direct practical steps about what to do with this new knowledge.
  • How the enneagram shapes interpersonal relationships and what you can do with this knowledge in your everyday life.
  • The absolute worst three things you might be misinterpreting currently about your own personality or that of another person.

Even if you are a complete beginner and don’t currently know a lot about personality types and how to become aware, the extensive research that went into this guide and the practical applications and exercises will instantly boost your abilities to better understand your own true character, beliefs, and emotions as well as those of other people around you.

By relying on the latest scientific research from international experts and lifetime practitioners, The Enneagram of Personality is able to find your distinct type and provide you with all the additional practices, background knowledge, and small nuances that you won’t find in other places.

It can help you understand similar things.

Enneagram helps you recognize the lens through which you view the world—and thus why you do what you do and feel as you feel. It can help you understand similar things about others as well.

Another value to understanding my personality.

It is a different perspective than DISC or other personality tests. It is worth knowing my strengths based on Enneagram and adds another value to understanding my personality and identity.

LOVE IT!

It was an eye opening experience for my wife and I to learn why it is that we both react completely differently to certain situations and why certain things drive one of us crazy and the other couldn't care less. You will LOVE this book!

If you've never explored the best personality.

If you've never explored the best personality typology out there, you can do no better than this outstanding book. And the authors are not only wise but hilarious...not exactly a typical trait for spiritual director types.
