The enneagram is the one tool I’ve worked with to date that goes deep enough to describe the core theme that we each struggle with in our personal growth journey. When I use our advanced personal growth tools with Aspyrre clients, I consistently notice that the core issues they uncover align with their enneagram score.
The great thing about the enneagram is that each “type” has a personal growth path associated with it – so instead of just being put into a category that describes you, you get that extra dimension of seeing how your type looks different at different stages of personal growth, and how you can get yourself to your next level of personal and spiritual growth.
The tough thing about the enneagram is that it is hard to learn. You can take the test to get your type and read a description that can be incredibly insightful, but if you want to learn the whole model, it can be frustrating. There are nine types, two possible “wings” for each type, 27 sub-types, at least three “triads”, arrows that show how you can shift from one type to another under stress, nine levels of personal growth for each type, and passions and virtues for those who are interested in using the enneagram for deep spiritual growth.
The great thing about the tool is that it only costs $12 to take the assessment and there are so many books and classes available that you CAN do the learning if you choose to.
My suggestion for most Aspyrre members is to take the RHETI-Full test – this test costs only $12 and it is strongly validated, designed by credible practitioners who have been studying and teaching the tool for more than 35 years. Once you get your results, you can schedule a call to review them with me, or we can discuss via e-mail, and we will tie them to your current development plan.
Aspyrre pre-recorded Enneagram Classes:
Introduction to the Enneagram for Aspyrre Clients – tells you how we use the tool here at Aspyrre and how it connects to the other work you are doing, including your theme, goals, and work with the other tools.
Enneagram – The Journey – An Aspyrre class that gives you an overview of the life journey for each enneagram type. See if you can find yourself in the stories!
Enneagram – Core Motivations – This class will help you with the process of figuring out your type, by honing in on a “core sense” or motivation that drives each type. It also reviews the step by step process you might go through as you are deciding what type you are.
Enneagram – Nature and Nurture – This class offers some ideas about how your type might have been formed in childhood. You should know that I made some of this up – but I think what I added improved the theory tremendously, and it gave me a lot of additional clarity about the system as a whole.
The Aspyrre classes are a great beginning, and if you are interested in going deeper, there are tons of books and blogs and videos all over the place. It can actually be a bit overwhelming, so a good place to go from here is to the Enneagram Institute, where experts who have been working with this tool for more than thirty years go into great detail about all the types, including full descriptions of each type, the path of personal development for each type, information about relationships between types, childhood patterns, how to use the tool in business, and how to use the tool for spiritual growth.
