    I'm aware the title can be easily misinterpreted. This is just a thread I created to put down all the enneagram types if all wings were possible. I made a thread about this a few weeks ago in which I asked PerC to say which enneagram they would be if any wing was possible, and I got a good...

    The answer is, a really tormented 6! Especially when the 6 has the 1 for a supervisor. And I'm the 6, by the way. And actually, the 1 isn't really my supervisor, he just kind of thinks he is, so he walks in and demands I do things that he wants done, even though he has no authority to do so...

    Hello, fellow Type Ones! I have a question for you guys--particularly the ones who are "Perceivers" under the Myers-Briggs system. First of all, I'm sure it's highly possible that you can be some kind of xxxP and a Type One, but I'd reckon that it's kind of rare, since "Perceivers" are commonly...

    Some people see the world as dangerous, and some see it as safe. Some see it as just or unjust. Nevertheless, we all live in the same world. Elements of our personality color our views, and human perception is little more than an inkblot test. One purpose of the Enneagram of Personality is to...

    I thought I'd give this a try - I don't know who might end up reading it, but I can't post on my "real" blog - my divorce won't be final until June 1, so ... Let me start with what the current situation is. I've been married for ten years, and it's all coming to an end. My soon to be ex is an...

    Once we establish our personality styles or paradigms to help us apprehend and navigate around the world, we can either keep them pliant, flexible, accommodating, and up to date; or we can rigidly maintain them, assimilating everything into them, and suffer what Joel Barker (1992) calls...

    Author: Jerry Wagner When I was first introduced to the Enneagram, we got only the bad stuff -- the distortions, fixations, compulsions, exaggerations, vices, bad breath, etc. When I, in turn, presented the Enneagram styles this way, people would ask: "Isn’t there anything good about any...

    If you are a One, it’s likely that you: Obey (or fight with) an inner voice that points out your faults and mistakes and tells you how you could have done things better. Measure everything — especially yourself and your own performance — by exacting standards because there is a right...

    Three Basic Orientations The three orientations are an expression of the Law of Three, on which the entire Enneagram concept is based. This law states that there are three kinds of forces that act in the human nature - the Active force, the Responsive force and the Neutral force and that...

    1. I have very good judgment and am extremely prudent: in fact, a good judgment is one of my deepest strengths. 2. I have a strong conscience and a clear sense of right and wrong. 3. I tolerate others, their beliefs and actions, even though I don't necessarily agree with them or think that...

    The Dominant Affect Groups are important for transformational work because they reveal the unconscious emotional background we bring to all areas of our lives. In technical language, these have to do with 'object-relations' theory. Modern psychological theory has identified three fundamental...

    The ego of Type One is primarily identified with a blockage or constriction of their Moving-Instinctive Center. Ones consequently are out of touch with their instinctual energy and have trouble feeling their own Being, with its rightful weight and sense of strength. To compensate for this, they...

    Ones have a strong unconscious tendency to compare reality with what should be. They generally have a set of ideal standards against which they measure themselves, the behavior of others, and the world around them. These ideals differ from person to person. Some Ones could be preoccupied...

    Enneatype One belongs to the instinctual/gut triad; its instinctual energy and anger are directed inward. This inward build-up of energies gives to the sexual variant an energy similar to a cork under pressure. The fixation of the One is focused on containment and improvement, but the sexual...

    One Wing Two Average 1/2 combines the dry, rational, practical concerns of type one with the wet, other-connectedness of two. The emotional repression of one is somewhat balanced by the self-defined goodness and desire-to-please of two. 1/2s typically care more about appearance than 1/9, and...
