Spirituality, misidentifications, & applications of the Enneagram in your life
Don Richard Riso and Russ Hudson
This is the favorite Enneagram book of many because of its usefulness, variety of content, brevity, depth, and ease of use. It was originally conceived as a companion volume to their groundbreaking Personality Types, but is also a completely independent resource book, indispensable to anyone who wants to use the Enneagram and make applications of it in their lives and work.
Understanding the Enneagram contains all-new material, including the most complete treatment anywhere of the 'traditional' Enneagram (Passion, Virtue, Fixation, and Holy Idea), as well as the 'Missing Piece,' the Imbalances of the Centers, the Interrelated Enneagram, and the Paths of Transformation. Also included are completely revised and expanded versions of profiles of the types, recommendations for growth, misidentifications of all 36 type permutations, more on the Levels of Development, psychiatric correlations with the DSM-IV, and the connections between personality, Essence, and spirituality.
