Very interesting to read.

Unlike other testing models that are long and confusing this book presents a concise and approachable method to finding your Enneagram type.

It is clear, concise and well researched.

Format: Paperback
There are many facets to the enneagram, which is one of its attractions. I had been studying the enneagram intermittently over a period of about one year, and have learned to appreciate it as a result of having given personality typing some thought over the years, especially the Myers-Briggs typing system. An important point to bear in mind in the typing process for the enneagram is that there is an overall unity represented by the nine points that transcends one's special survival strategy (as seen through the enneagram scheme). Thus, finding one's reference point in this scheme does not put one in a box, but challenges one to develop a broader conception of what it means to be human. This book is very well organized for helping one narrow down possibilities for one's type, based on a scheme of cycling through the types a number of times, presenting different pictures each time, starting with a test that is simple to take. The fact that there was considerable experience in interviewing people involved in the background of the authors, and that there was some statistical analysis that was carried forward is also interesting. This latter facet is particularly poignant in that one's type involves connections to four other types: two wings, a stress point and a security point, and it is of interest to consider how well this theoretical complexity actually shows up under controled conditions. Another aspect that is focused on is the overlap with possible "look-alike" types based on the language that we use to describe people. This book is, of course, no substitute for actually interviewing people of specific types, and in that sense, as well as not being well-organized to discuss the unifying aspects of the enneagram, it is not reflecting the true depth of this system.Read more ›

The changes in this book make it worth the investment. In particular, sections about myths of each type and adjectives that describe the types are helpful. While this book is useful, it should be a beginning point in the understanding of Enneagram, a very powerful spiritual and psychological tool. I'd prefer it if the authors used different language than "test" for determining one's type, since there are no right or wrong answers except as the user calls them right for the individual.

Format: Paperback
The new Essential Enneagram is now the book I immediately hand to my students, clients and anyone interested in learning more about the Enneagram. This little gem of a book serves two populations: folks who are new to the Enneagram and want a concise, accessible introduction; and folks already well-versed in the nine types who are looking for practical applications and deeper personal growth. I appreciate the addition of The Myths About Type, in which the authors lift the nine types out of the realm of stereotype and correct mis-perceptions. All of the new additions of this revised and updated Essential Enneagram capture the positive aspects of the nine types and remind us that all nine are necessary and vital to humanity's wholeness. This book is an invaluable resource, and I recommend keeping two on your bookshelves: one to keep, and one to lend!

I was introduced to the Enneagram during a retreat of Stanford's Chaplains. It's a must for all. I have learnt great details about my own personality and growth. I thought I knew a lot about myself and was confident to label myself as a (3). Soon after, I realized that I was an Epicure and not a Performer. Still I hold traits of both, I think. I strongly recommend this book for your own use and (try it with your spouse for fun).

I was interested in this formula, but this book is too limited -- so it is just an introduction. You will need another book if you want to pursue it.

This book did exactly what I wanted it to; it let me find out my Enneagram type with a minimum of fuss. It is clearly written and easy to read, and easy to follow the steps to determining your type. I wouldn't recommend the Kindle edition for first-time readers, as the process for determining your type involves a lot of flipping back and forth between sections of the book, which would be much easier with the physical book.

This fascinating book provides a great way to begin to see yourself in a new way, as well as develop a better understanding of others' perspectives. I learned why my partner and I get along so well, and why I struggle with some of my family members. David Daniels makes this information interesting and accessible and his book whetted my appetite to delve deeper into the Enneagram.
