Book Description

July 1, 2002 0935652574 978-0935652574
Self-discovery can be an elusive process. Some people never fully express their true personalities because of obstacles from the past. Others float through life with a set of defense mechanisms that seem adequate until something happens to shake that pattern. In her groundbreaking work, Pat Wyman combines three psychological techniques to create a successful method of personal integration. The foundation of the work is a comparative exploration of how the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® instrument, the Enneagram, and Inner-Child Healing can assist in self-discovery. In the end, it is a strikingly honest and poignant study of how a remarkable group of people dealt with tragedy and abuse, and how they achieved healing through intense introspection and the use of these three modalities. Courageous clients share their stories, poems, artwork and letters, which are interwoven throughout the author’s in-depth explanation of how to guide clients through this process.

Editorial Reviews

Review

Three Keys to Self-Understanding is a groundbreaking, highly illuminating, and warmly approachable work on the subject of healing. Wyman has effectively blended two personality theories, Psychological Type and the Enneagram, with the very different Innerchild Theory to create what may be the most comprehensive model on healing that is currently available. With her use of nonclinical language, liberally spiced with delightful wit and humor, she has proven that authentic and correct psychological information can be made available to anyone who really wants to take the healing journey. --Pat Ryan, Clinical Social Worker and MBTI® Practitioner

4.0 out of 5 stars Three Keys to Self-Understanding December 7, 2004
By luv2run
Format:Paperback
I found this book to be very easy to follow. The author does a great job of explaning how different types view and handle many situations. The case studies also provide great examples of people dealing with personal conflict, emotions, and obstacles. By using a combination of the MBTI, Enneagram, and Inner-Child healing they are able to overcome some of their inner doubts, unresolved issues, and other emotional conflicts. Pat Wyman is very effective in getting the reader to understand each individual tool and how the combination of these tools can be greatly beneficial in therapy.

This book can be useful not only to therapists, but to someone who has an understanding of these tools and may want to gain some insight into how they are used.

5.0 out of 5 stars By far the best book on the topic that I have read! September 21, 2009
Format:Paperback
I have been MBTI certified for many years and have helped many since. But it was until I read this wonderful book and then had the opportunity to discuss issues with Pat that I finally found my true type. I have over 60 different resources (books, manuals, and short guides), and it was not until I saw the brilliant comparison of the MBTI with the Enneagram that I finally came to terms with myself. There were a couple of MBTI types that sort of described me, but it was so frustrating to not be sure. When I read the diagram describing INFJ with Enneagram 5, suddenly everything made sense. What a wonderful, enlightening, relieving experience! I am extremely grateful to Pat Wyman for her wonderful book Three Keys to Self-Understanding: An Innovative and Effective Combination of the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator Assessment Tool, the Enneagram, and Inner-Child Healing. Not only did it answer my questions regarding the MBTI, but it also brought insight into another complementary part of personality, plus the great section for the healing process. If you are looking for answers, look no more. This is a must have book. In retrospective, out of the 60+ references in my library, I could do with this masterpiece book and David Keirsey's Please Understand Me II (Temperament theory), that's it! I am now looking forward to join Pat in one of her seminars.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Self Help Book May 18, 2007
Format:Paperback
Pat Wyman has provided an excellent workbook for anyone seeking a better understanding of themselves. Combining the strengths of the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator, the Ennegram and Inner Child work is pure genius. This book is easy to read and apply with or without a trained professional. I benefited from each chapter and especially from the hands-on techniques for healing the child within.

5.0 out of 5 stars This Book Explains So Much! August 20, 2009
Format:Paperback
As a long term certified user of Myers Briggs (worldwide, and in many organizational settings), I know its brilliance and its limitations. Pat Wyman's extraordinary research - and her system for integrating the MBTI, the Enneagram, and Inner Child work - both fills in the blanks and answers questions about the limitations of any single "typing" model. If you know the MBTI, you'll understand that, for example, five ENFP's may seem similar but have individual characteristics that make them quite different, too. By using Pat's system, we can clearly understand at a profound level the differences between an ENFP/Enneagram 2, ENFP/Enneagram 7, ENFP/Enneagram 8, and ENFP/Enneagram 3. This is amazing work that has informed my professional life and, most important, given me new insights into myself.

5.0 out of 5 stars Groundbreaking (scary) experience February 26, 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have never reviewed a book before on Amazon. I haven't reviewed anything, did not even know how to do it.
All I can say is, buy this book, it combines MTBI + Enneagram defense, it will most likely describe you with
frightening accuracy, as it did with me.

Highly recommended.

=)

5.0 out of 5 stars Three Keys August 20, 2009
Format:Paperback
This is a life changing book that I think answers so many questions people look for in one self-help book after another. This book is far more than a self-help book! It is easy to read and understand, yet contains so much information. The insights in this book seem to come in layers....each time you pick it up you gain more and more understanding of yourself and the people in your life. I found myself nodding as I read each page. This is one book I read to the very end. And plan to read again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome, Innovative Concepts! August 27, 2009
Format:Paperback
This is the best book that I have ever read that provides insights into why people react in certain ways to things that happen in their lives. Pat Wyman, the author, has created a succinct, easily readable book filled with a ground-breaking concept of how the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator, the Enneagram, and inner Child Healing work together to make us who we are. I have found this book presents very understandable information about how and why people in my family, at work, and my friends react to situations that arise. The many stories that Pat Wyman provides from the lives of her clients explain in such an understandable manner just how the three keys can help you to better understand yourself and others. Especially fascinating was the explanations of the MBTI-Enneagram qualities correlations which can present either all-out conflict or harmony in a person. The Tricks of the Trade chapter provides many suggestions to help access old programming and replace the old, limited, knee-jerk responses with more effective coping skills.
This book is a constant reference and tool to better understand not only myself but all the others in my life.
