9780062516763: The Essential Enneagram: The Definitive Personality Test and Self-Discovery Guide

The First and Only Scientifically Determined Enneagram Personality Test and Guide

A centuries-old psychological system with roots in sacred tradition, the Enneagram can be an invaluable guide in your journey toward self-understanding and self-development. In this book, Stanford University Medical School clinical professor of psychiatry David Daniels and counseling psychologist Virginia Price offer the only scientifically developed Enneagram test based upon extensive research combined with a self-discovery and personal-development guide.

The most fundamental guide to the Enneagram ever offered, this book features effective self-tests to determine simply and accurately what your personality type is. Daniels and Price provide step-by-step instructions for taking inventory of how you think, what you feel, and what you experience. They then guide you in your discovery of what your type means for your personal well-being and your relationships with others, and they show you how to maximize your inherent strengths. Brimming with empowering information for each of the nine personality types—Perfectionist, Giver, Performer, Romantic, Observer, Loyal Skeptic, Epicure, Protector, and Mediator—this one-of-a-kind book equips you with all the tools you need to dramatically enhance your quality of life.

From the Publisher:

The Essential Enneagram is the first scientifically determined Enneagram personality test combined with a detailed guide to both discovering your type and furthering your personal growth. It was originally published as the Stanford Enneagram Discovery Inventory and Guide (SEDIG). It is now greatly expanded to include a comprehensive section on "What To Do When You Have Discovered Your Type."

From the Author:

We feel that our book gives the reader several important benefits:

*Precise probabilities for each type and clear, straight forward steps for discovering your type: All that any personality assesment can provide are probablities. Here we provide precise probabilities. You, the reader, must discover your type for yourself. This fact actually supports the fundamental philosophy that the Enneagram is about your internal stance and motivation, literally how you perceive the world, and not just about your external behavior.

*Key differences of every type from every other type: Here we help assure the reader that what you choose to be your correct type is in fact your correct type.

*Concise and comprehensive type description pages: These pages give the basic proposition, pricipal characteristics, stressors and associated causes of anger, the steps and hindrances in personal development, and how others can support the type. We like it that these pages give a holographic view of the Enneagram types, showing how everything about type fits together and flows from the basic proposition of the type.

*The universal practices and principles: Here, in addition to a basic attention skill building breath practice, we give the three laws of behavior, three intelligences, three life forces, three survival behaviors, three levels of knows, and the nine elements for personal growth!

*Specific practices for each type: We think is it groundbreaking to provide practices that are tailored for each type and go far beyond assertions and suggestions. Thus, we give an awareness practice, action practice, preview-review practice, and reflection practice that are distinct for each type.

We believe that you will find _The Essential Enneagram_ highly readable, concise (only 96 pages), inexpensive, and useful.
