let’s talk about the Enneagram
What is the Enneagram?
Part personality test. Part ancient wisdom. It’s a method of typology that helps people explain the way they experience the world. Lots of personality tests will tell you about how you behave, but when you uncover your Enneagram type it helps explain why you behave that way.
How do I find my type?
While there are a few free tests floating around the internet, the best ways to find your type are:
(1) Taking the Enneagram Institute’s Enneagram test.
I am licensed to distribute the test and I offer a mini coaching session to help you unpack the results. Click here to take the test.
Unlike other personality tests, uncovering your Enneagram type is a process. The more you know about the Enneagram, the more you learn about yourself. You can start reading about the Enneagram on my blog.
Hey, Erica, why are you so obsessed with the Enneagram?
When I found and began studying the Enneagram, I was able to make sense of what emotions were triggering my unhealthy (binge) eating sessions.
I was able to wrap my head around why it was so hard for me to take action on things that were supposedly really important to me.
And, it helped lift the feelings of isolation, hopelessness, and despair I was feeling.
You can’t change what you don’t know.
The Enneagram helps us know.
