I have a friend who is really into this. She started telling me about it and before long, I was so curious that I took the test.
It was eye opening. I could not believe how accurate it was. The good, the bad, and the ugly. So, what is it?
The Enneagram of Personality Types is a modern synthesis of a number of ancient wisdom traditions, but the person who originally put the system together was Oscar Ichazo. Ichazo was born in Bolivia and raised there and in Peru, but as a young man, moved to Buenos Aires, Argentina to learn from a school of inner work he had encountered. Thereafter, he journeyed in Asia gathering other knowledge before returning to South America to begin putting together a systematic approach to all he had learned.
There is a lot more to the story so if you want the full details here is the link.
There are 9 types, they are The Reformer, the helper, the achiever,the individualist, the investigator, the loyalist, the enthusiast, the challenger and the peacemaker.
Just reading the names might give you an idea of each but it goes so much deeper.
Have I peaked your curiosity? You can find info and take the test here.
I would love to hear how you made out. Please share.
