Publisher's Summary

Could an ancient method of explaining personalities help you figure out why your work team is having trouble? Could it lead to a more satisfying life?

We humans need each other, yet we also bump up against each other abrasively, and that inability to get along and lack of teamwork can doom projects and relationships. If you have reformers or individualists on your team, will they be able to work with loyalists or enthusiasts? Given your own Enneagram type, are you more likely to have a successful marriage with a helper, a peacemaker, or an achiever?

Enneagram explains:

  • The nine Enneagram types 
  • The 27 subtypes
  • The drawing that explains the concept 
  • The interrelationship of the different types.

The audiobook will help you:

  • Identify your own Enneagram type
  • Increase your self-confidence through understanding yourself and others
  • Regain inner strength 
  • Achieve self-improvement and self-transformation 
  • Understand how your actions affect others
  • Identify how the personalities of other people influence you 
  • Transform negativity through mindfulness.

The Enneagram is more than just a way at looking at personality types. It delves deeper into the core motivations, fears, and defense mechanisms that drive us in sometimes baffling ways.

You don’t have to be a psychologist to understand that people have different drives and ways of seeing the world. If you have felt stuck in your life or frustrated in your dealings with other people, perhaps Enneagram is the missing piece of your puzzle.

Learning about the Enneagram can transform self-sabotage into growth. Through knowledge of the Enneagram, you will be able to create and nurture meaningful relationships and a spiritual foundation that will enhance every area of your life.

If you are still looking for that special someone, Enneagram can help you understand which Enneagram types are most likely to be compatible with you. If you haven’t found your right livelihood, the knowledge in Enneagram can help you change that.

NO REPEATS WHAT SO EVER!

This is really a Great listen and I enjoyed it very much. I had delayed myself in purchasing and listen to this book on account of the many reviews criticizing that it was repeating itself.
Now I'm sorry that I waited so long.

I have listened and read many enneagram book and this book is refreshing to hear. It's not necessarily at the beginner's level so if you're familiar with the enneagram base it's easy to keep up with the different comparisons. There's information presented that I hadn't heard in other books or perhaps it was just said in a different manner. Not saying the entire listen is this way but even small new information can be the key to what you've been looking for all along.

and honestly I having a close 9 friend. I honestly really like the way this book presents the 9. It mentioning many weakness or ways to help them mentioned in this book that I show and use in the first four year relationship. Yet 9's always wanting being optimistic, I can see why it would be hard for them to hear the reality.

Dirty Little Secrets Of Enneagram

One-wing-nine personality types have a basic fear of being unethical and corrupt. They avoid making morally wrong choices and can be objective and emotionally reserved.

They have a basic desire to be morally good. They advocate for rights of others through teaching and discussion.

Optimists tend to respond to negativity by either redirecting their emotions or by avoiding them entirely. They may push themselves deeper into their work, their type one defense mechanism, or they may withdraw from it altogether, their type nine defense mechanism.

The Real Truth About Enneagram

After I had become very skilled with the enneagram, I was able to demonstrate personality thin-slicing. Thin-slicing is a psychological term for the ability of highly experienced experts to find patterns in data using only very brief windows of perception. A classic example is when a fine-art connoisseur can tell a genuine Picasso from a high quality fake after only a glance at each. To learn more about thin-slicing in general, read the listen called Blink.

I was sitting in a restaurant with a friend when I claimed that I was able to determine people’s personality style just by looking at them. She pointed at a customer who walked through the door and asked me, “What type is she?” I said, “Five.” Then she pointed at the barman. “Seven,” I said. Then a man sitting at another table, “He’s a two,” I responded. My friend pointed at several other people, and I gave my thin-slice response for each, ending with the host: “Six,” I said.

This is so incredible listen!

This is so incredible listen and I do love the amazing way it was clarified. Excessively basic anyway it gives us an incredible comprehension. This listen makes me significantly make a couple of data examinations adequately. This is completely the best one.

This listen is great!

This listen is great if you’re willing to do some self-reflection and realize there’s always a better version of you to strive for. I just love this voice book and consider it the best of the dozen or so Enneagram books I own. It is an easy listen dealing with an interesting issue.

Lots of Vital Data Accumulated In This Book.

This audible book is a good introduction to the Enneagram. I have the audiobook and re-listen to it every time I drive to meet my extended family at the beach. This was a perfect guide for those people who need this kind of audible book.

Very Informative!

This book approaches the Enneagram in a marginally unique manner and one which I acknowledged without a doubt. The author, subsequent to having the peruser step through the exam to decide the numbers for the Enneagram, clarifies how we become the individual that we are. In the back of the book, the author encourages us to perceive how people around us, our locale, can enable us to turn out to be progressively adjusted people.

Those actionable phrases help me a lot

This book has created engaging and fun conversations at family gatherings. A foundation and in-depth study of the enneagram sub-types. I like that he includes step-by-step instructions for how to set things up.

A new section of my life that helped by the book

This is a quick overview to help you understand the enneagram and begin figuring out your type. This one goes deeper than most in conveying the core elements of the enneagram, explaining what is known about its history, and most of all. I like this book very much.
