Summary

The human personality is a mystification that has eluded some of the greatest minds in all of history. Poets, philosophers, religious leaders, and laymen alike have all gone to great lengths to break down the human psyche, but no clear answer has come about yet. Most likely, the middle of the human personality will always retain some mystery, but with the proper tool in hand, almost anyone can begin to pry away the opaque clouds of wonder and get a glimpse into the truth about themselves. 

One of the best tools out there for discovering who you really are is the Enneagram. If you have never heard of the Enneagram before, then it just may be the tool you have been missing. If you are ready to let the old and confused self go and begin the process of self-discovery, then learning about the Enneagram is an absolute must. 

The Enneagram has roots that trace back to antiquity. Like so many other tools and concepts that stem from days long gone by, it is still being used today to help people learn things about themselves they never knew before. If you are having trouble finding your path in life or want to make a change but do not know where to begin, then the Enneagram may just be the item that steers you in the right direction. 

Some of the information you will find in this audiobook includes:

  • A personality test that will give you a starting point to help discover who you really are.
  • A history of what the Enneagram is and how it came to be.
  • Several different correspondences to help you look at the Enneagram from multiple points of view. 
  • Explanations of the dominant personality types as well as the wings. 
  • Insight to the different levels of health that relate to the human personality.
  • Numerical values for the integration and disintegration points. 
  • An explanation of why the diagram of the Enneagram looks the way it does and how to make your own. 
  • Why you should make an honest effort to discover who you really are.
  • And more!

A Positive Book

This is one of the most positive books on the enneagram by Ian Baron. It's easy to listen yet insightful. Best of all, the positive traits of each personality type are highlighted.

An Awakening!!!

This book was the first to help me realize my significance in this universe. I finally discovered my 'make up', personality type, where I got it and how I think! It was an Awakening for me! This is worth listening a hundred times! I am blessed to have listened it.

Want to know why you do what you do?

If you answer questions correctly, you will find out which of these 9 personality types you are. Ian explains how our types behave when we are healthy, and how we behave during stress. Keep a sense of humor! You have to be honest with yourself - but don't be insulted when you yourself through the Enneagram's descriptions!

Remarkable book

Remarkable accurate descriptions of my own personality and those of some family members. Listening this book teaches compassion for ourselves and others. Insightful. I don't know if the Enneagram covers ALL personalities - I found that some family members were almost iconic examples of some of the types, while others, I couldn't place them at all.

Love this book

Love this book! It has changed my life, helping me to understand what motivates my reactions to other people. It also helps me to understand where others, especially my husband, are coming from. Our marriage of 32 years has been greatly improved. I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to know more about human nature and think our world would be a better place if everyone knew this stuff.

Buy it, you won't regret it

What can I say, best Enneagram book for first-timers. Changed my life. So, so much more than other standard 'personality type tests'. Everyone in the world should really know about this stuff. Love the book, have given it and loaned it to many people.

Amazing book!

Utterly amazing. It's like having an open view into the working of your own mind and the people around you. Powerful stuff that can be used for self growth and understanding or manipulation. Almost like having a superpower.
