Discovering Your Type

In contrast to behavioral systems such as Meyers-Briggs in which type characteristics are easily observable, the Enneagram focuses on our deeper motivational structures. These structures can be largely unconscious and can take some “digging” to expose. Therefore, discovering your type on the Enneagram tends to be a lengthier process, however the rewards are rich and well worth the effort. Even if it takes you quite some time to figure it out, nothing is lost. Just going through the process of looking within and doing some self-observation can lead to some interesting discoveries.
