The Enneagram is a geometric figure that represents nine fundamental Personality types of human nature and its complex interrelationships. It is a description of modern psychology based on the spiritual wisdom of many different ancient traditions.
The word ennea-gram, from the Greek ennea, "nine", and grams,"figure", it means "nine-pointed figure".
The modern Enneagram of personality types is a psychological tool that is used for personal development, emotional intelligence, self-knowledge and those around us.
Each enneagram style has a special way of perceiving reality, thinking, feeling, communicating with others, reacting, seeing life and solving problems, all with their particular values. It is a map of how we are and how we release the barriers that limit us.
We can make, through the enneagram, a basic map of our personality. Many psychologists use it, even large recognized organizations such as the FBI, the CIA, HP or Apple, among others.
