    I know this is a hot topic, but reading this book, it all sounds kind of horoscope-y. I had a clear idea where I was on the chart, and then I took the test. I was not the person I thought I was. I took it again, and came out differently, and again, a different test from a different source, with a different result, and took the the first again, with a result combining the two different tests I had taken. I think there are things that you can learn about yourself that will help you to do things bet I know this is a hot topic, but reading this book, it all sounds kind of horoscope-y.

I think there are things that you can learn about yourself that will help you to do things better, and to better understand how others do things. I like that (according to this author) the test was developed by Jesuits. I'm just not sure I really buy it.

    This is the second book on the Enneagram I've read this year. Since I'm a 5 that means I have only to read 12 more! This is the second book on the Enneagram I've read this year. Since I'm a 5 that means I have only to read 12 more!

    I think the ideas of personality are very complicated. But yet, it's pretty funny how a thoughtful reading about enneagrams can bring you to some clear self realization and reveal patterns of behaviour that you may not have seen in yourself prior. I think it's something to think about. At any rate it's a good exercise. I think the ideas of personality are very complicated.

    One of the best enneagram books I’ve read. I would not consider this a beginning level book. I’m certain most of the reason I enjoyed it is because I have a pretty good grasp of all of the concepts presented. As a fan of Suzanne Stabile and her teaching on the enneagram, I think I see many of the roots of ideas she teaches on now in this book.

    I don't buy this. I'm a 5w4, and a lot of this just sounds weird with dubious origins. This book doesn't explain methodology, either. I don't buy this. I'm a 5w4, and a lot of this just sounds weird with dubious origins. This book doesn't explain methodology, either.

    Interesting, but it was hard to get past all the Jesus stuff (which was admittedly unsurprising, given the authors).

    A little slow going for me at first, but the last part on overcoming one’s compulsion was of greater interest and may be helpful to me. Something I’ll come back to and ponder.

    One of the oldest books I’ve read on this subject. Enjoyed the perspective of the nine types revealed in Jesus life & ministry

    This book was given to me by my own Spiritual Director after I began using the Enneagram as a tool for growth in self knowledge. I love how it focuses on understanding our compulsions and overcoming them. I particularly like the second Chapter: The Enneagramic Jesus which is a study of the personality of Jesus as reflected in the Enneagram types.

    It was fun (for me) to learn more about this system of personality types and to analyze myself to figure out my type. I'm always interested in self-analysis like that. I started reading every word of the book, but toward the end, I just read the parts that applied to my type, plus a couple others that seemed interesting or like friends that I have. I don't know if it is just the enneagram system in general or the way the book presents it, but at times the writing/concepts were a little cryptic a It was fun (for me) to learn more about this system of personality types and to analyze myself to figure out my type.

I don't know if it is just the enneagram system in general or the way the book presents it, but at times the writing/concepts were a little cryptic and convoluted to me. Still, it was worthwhile to figure out my number and apply the knowledge of it to myself and my behavior. I still believe I'm a SEVEN. Take that as you will.

    Extremely practical and helpful overview of the Enneagram. It is written from a clear, passionate Christian perspective, so know that going into it. That being said, the chapter on 'conversion' is a much more thoughtful treatment than the topic usually gets. I'm amazed at how much one can draw from the Enneagram. It's a remarkable system for analyzing one's own compulsions, and the book gives very realistic advice for overcoming them.

I found myself humming and nodding in agreement while madly flipping the pages, and I will probably refer back to this many times in both my professional and family lives.

    Whilst I wasn't expecting a grand depth into the history and practices of the Sufi mystics, the conclusion that everybody should accept not only a monotheistic, but the Christian god in order to practice the teachings of this book seemed to smack of Western appropriation. A few useful bits here and there for self-reflection and analysis, which is the only reason for the 2 star rating given.

    This is a great introduction to the enneagram and puts it in a Christian perspective. The book even goes so far as to look at how Jesus lived out the positive aspects of the nine personality types. I highly recommend this for anyone who wishes to grow in greater self-awareness and personal growth.

    This book was a recommended read. It goes far beyond anything else I've read about personality typing. This book was a recommended read. It goes far beyond anything else I've read about personality typing.

    this book really does a good job of comparing Jesus to the enneagram types and seeing all the types in him.

    Best justification and explanation read to date of the Enneagram journey into the self in three stages: discovering one's compulsion, understanding its causes, and overcoming the compulsion.

    A lot of this book was discussing the Enneagram in terms of Jesus, which I didn't like so much, though it was still interesting. I do feel I learned more about the enneagram.

    If you find the enneagram to be a useful self-awareness and growth tool, this book is well written. It's an old publication but the material is timeless.
