The Cat Woman, Acceptance of Reality, and the Enneagram

Personality Types or traits

However you look at it, ‘type theories’ offer a relatively blunt way of describing people. They can have difficulty accounting for the small variations in behaviour that exist between people of the same type. As a result, it seems limiting and risky to assign a type label to a person, as this inevitably leads to missing their individual uniqueness.

Coaching with The Enneagram

The Enneagram goes further by giving insight into what motivates behaviour, how individuals ‘see’ the world, along with their typical thinking, feeling and communication habits.

Beginnings, Endings & Counterbalances

It seems to me that the phenomenon of compensatory opposites is also an integral part of what the Enneagram suggests about human behaviour and personality in general. Our characteristic behavioural patterns typically compensate for something else.
