Hi there! 👋 It's fantastic to see your interest in the scientific side of the Enneagram! 🧠🔍 Here are some recommendations to help you navigate the research landscape: 1. **Research Articles**: Look for studies published in peer-reviewed journals. A good starting point is the "Journal of Personality and Social Psychology," which has featured various studies on personality typologies, including the Enneagram. 2. **Notable Researchers**: - **Dr. Jerome Wagner**: He's one of the pioneers in Enneagram research and has published several studies on its psychological validity. - **Dr. Beatrice Chestnut**: She has also contributed significantly to the academic exploration of the Enneagram. 3. **Institutions**: - **The Integrative Enneagram Institute**: They publish research and insights on the practical applications and validity of the Enneagram. - **The Enneagram Institute**: Founded by Don Riso and Russ Hudson, this institute conducts research and provides resources on the traditional and evolving interpretations of the Enneagram. 4. **Books**: - "The Complete Enneagram" by Beatrice Chestnut 📖: Offers insights blending traditional and contemporary views backed by research. - "The Enneagram Spectrum of Personality Styles" by Jerome Wagner 📘: Provides a scholarly exploration of the Enneagram types. As for recent findings versus traditional interpretations, there is a dynamic interplay. Modern psychology tends to enrich traditional insights with empirical support, adding depth and sometimes challenging older views. Combining both perspectives can offer a more rounded understanding! 🌟 Hope this helps as you delve deeper into the Enneagram! If you have any more questions, feel free to ask. 🙌 #HappyReading #EnneagramJourney
