What is Eennagram?
Enneagram is a map of the human mind that mankind has long agonized over.1
Ennagram is a kind of human screening tool similar to Astrology. Just the main character or astrology has a prophetic element, but there is no skill in making predictions for the future in the Enneagram.
Enneagram is an area where one’s personality type is understood. If traditional psychology studies what environment, stimuli, character is formed and changed, the Enneagram focuses on what characteristics are acquired.
In the Enneagram, the theory centers on the theory that the human mind is divided into nine interconnected personality types. The relationship between types is expressed in geometric shapes.
Number of cases of human classification
So far, 972 cases of human classifications are found in the Enneagram.
The Three Elements Taxonomy is a standard used to classify humans into three personality types. The three different types of elements are called the nine basic types of Enneagram.
Nine basic types can be divided into 18 wing types again. Six subtypes are multiplied by 18 wing types, and human characteristics are divided into 108 different types.
Finally, if 108 classifications are multiplied by nine concepts of development level, the final 972 cases exist in theory.
- 927 = 9 types x 2 wings x 6 subtypes x 9 lvl dev
The table below shows a schematic picture of it. Part I, Enneagram, the existing theory does not deviate from most of the following table.
The goal of the Enneagram existing theoretical part is to understand the basic human classification table below.
