The Enneagram is an ancient personality typing system helping reveal people’s motivations. It reveals not what a person does, but why they do it. From the Greek words for nine (ennea) and drawing (gram), the Enneagram is a nine- pointed geometric symbol. Each point represents a basic personality Type and a specific pattern of thinking and way of being. This means there are nine valid perspectives of the world. You can think of it like wearing different colored lenses—if your client has red lenses, they see the world in red, but if they have green lenses, they see the world in green. The same goes for orange, blue, yellow, etc. It’s hard for each of us to remember that other people aren’t seeing the world through the same colored lens that we are!
