Enneagram personalities

The Enneagram is consists of nine distinct personality types, each with its own set of motivations, fears, and coping strategies. The Enneagram is popularly used as a framework for personal growth and self-awareness, as well as a tool for understanding and navigating interpersonal relationships. The nine Enneagram types are based on the idea that each person has a dominant personality trait or pattern of behavior that shapes their worldview and influences their actions. This is also a caveat of the model, as in reality, we’re all on a continuum / spectrum, and that’s dealt with much better by the Big Five model.
