And while some students of the Enneagram become attached to their Enneagram personality type – “Of course I want to win, I’m a 3!”, the Enneagram offers us so much more. It initiates a profound process of self-inquiry about why we feel, think and behave the way we do and the beliefs that drive them. This awareness allows us to stop the automatic reactions of our personality type—thus providing us with choices to react differently. In short, it brings awareness to the box we are already unknowingly in and the path to get out. Back to 4 Reasons...


2. Understand the basic fear that motivates you.

Understanding the Enneagram deepens your awareness and insights into yourself and others. Read more...Most of us don’t realize that our thoughts, feelings and behaviors are driven by a basic fear. Each Enneagram type is moved by a different fear or need. If we are aware of this basic fear, we can make choices that aren’t fear-driven and are different from our default reactions. What if you weren’t afraid that others would see you as weak if you expressed your sadness? What if you weren’t afraid others would see you as incompetent if you asked for help? What’s possible with these different choices that wouldn’t be possible if you reacted with your default behavior? Back to 4 Reasons...

3. Reduce interpersonal conflict.

Through the lens of the Enneagram, we see that each of us is driven by a basic fear, such as the fear of being unworthy or of being controlled. That basic fear serves as the filter for how we view the world and our experiences. When we understand this, we realize that a person’s undesirable behavior is usually NOT intended as a personal affront, but a means for overcoming their basic fear. This perspective equips us to react to that person with curiosity and compassion instead of judgement and defensiveness. The understanding that behaviors are driven by an individual’s filter is key to building and maintaining healthy relationships and reducing conflict. Back to 4 Reasons...


4. Discover the Path to the Highest Expression of Yourself

The Enneagram helps us see that who we REALLY are is far more impressive than who we think we should be. For much of our lives our actions and choices are based on our basic fear and how “others” need us to be or how we think we SHOULD be. These decisions are usually fear based, and not aligned to our own values and needs, inflicting deep inner conflict and suffering. The power of understanding our Enneagram type is that we learn who we really are, what we value, our unconscious fears and default behaviors. With that awareness we can choose differently rather than react. The Enneagram identifies where you are and illuminates the path to your highest expression of yourself.


What’s the bottom-line? Understanding our Enneagram type increases our self-knowledge and limits our suffering. Most importantly, it shows us that who we REALLY are, is far better than who we think we SHOULD be. Back to 4 Reasons...
