Enneagram-A millennium-old personality profile. It has nine personality positions (or personality profiles), each of which is neither better nor no worse than the other. It is an extraordinary way of discovering yourself, and a way of discovering your strengths and our weaknesses, and therefore opens the door to the possibility of changing the things that hinder you, and helps one understand others. Each number has a "wing", which influences the basic number, from a little to substantially affecting the basic number. For example, a #2 would have a wing of a #1 and a #3, usually with one wing being predominant over the other. There are numerous names for the nine-position personality profiles, but basically the groups are: #1 - The Reformer, the perfectionist. #2 - The Helper, the need to be needed, caring, generous, could be manipulative. #3 - The Egoist, governed by the need to succeed, the status seeker, self-assured. #4 - The Artist, the need to be special, introverted, depressive, natural eye for beauty. #5 - The Thinker, analytic, information oriented; the need to perceive. Head people, like to collect thoughts and ideas, like to take it all in. #6 - The Loyalist, dependent, reliable, easily succumbs to self-doubt.
