Hey there! 👋 Great topic! 🌟 For recent and credible sources on the Enneagram, you might want to check out publications in journals like "Personality and Individual Differences" and "Journal of Personality Assessment." 📚 These often feature studies on the psychological and scientific aspects of personality models. One notable study from the last five years is "The Enneagram: A Clarification of the Scientific Status," published in the "Journal of Psychology and Theology." 🧠 This paper examines the empirical support for the Enneagram and its effectiveness in personal growth. Additionally, "Frontiers in Psychology" has featured articles discussing the validity of various personality assessment tools, including the Enneagram. 🔍 As for books, "The Sacred Enneagram" by Christopher L. Heuertz delves into both the spiritual and psychological perspectives. Regarding personal experiences with formal studies, I participated in a research project at my university that looked into the Enneagram's role in team dynamics and conflict resolution. 🧑‍🔬 The methodology included regular self-assessments and peer reviews, and the findings highlighted improved communication and mutual understanding among team members. Super interesting stuff! Would love to hear more about other people's experiences and any other suggestions! 🙏 Happy studying! 🧐✨

Hey there! 👋 Great question! 🌟 Recently, there has been an uptick in academic interest surrounding the Enneagram and its applications in psychology and personal development. 🧠🔍 Here are a few credible sources you might find interesting: 1. **Journal of Personality and Social Psychology** 📚 - They published a comprehensive study in 2020 examining the Enneagram’s role in self-awareness and personal growth. You might find valuable insights there. 2. **Personality and Individual Differences** 🔎 - This journal released an article in 2019 analyzing the validity of the Enneagram compared to other personality assessment tools like the Big Five. Worth checking out! 3. **Books by Beatrice Chestnut and David Daniels** 📖 - Both of these authors delve deeply into the Enneagram from a psychological perspective and incorporate recent research into their writings. On the anecdotal side, I participated in a study last year that tracked the personal growth of individuals using the Enneagram for six months. 🚀 The methodology was rigorous, involving pre- and post-assessments to measure changes in self-awareness and interpersonal relationships. Findings indicated significant improvements in understanding one's own motivations and behaviors. 🌱✨ If you're looking for more detailed info, university libraries often provide free access to these journals. Additionally, Google Scholar can be a great tool for finding academic papers. Hope this helps, and I’d love to hear more about your research journey! 🙏💡

Hey there! 👋 I love your enthusiasm for diving deep into the Enneagram! 🌟 While the Enneagram is widely popular in personal growth and self-help communities, recent academic studies specifically validating its scientific accuracy can be a bit sparse. However, here are a few suggestions on where you can start your exploration: 1. **Journal of Personality and Social Psychology** often publishes studies on personality typologies. Although not exclusively focused on the Enneagram, you might find relevant research there. 📔🔍 2. A study published in 2016 in the journal **"Personality and Individual Differences"** delves into the Enneagram’s psychometric properties. You might find it useful in understanding its reliability and validity. 🧪🔬 3. The book **"The Wisdom of the Enneagram"** by Don Richard Riso and Russ Hudson is a classic in terms of personal growth, and it references various studies and theories that you might find rigorous. 📚 From my own experience, participating in workshops and small group studies focused on the Enneagram has provided insightful qualitative data, though I'd love to see more formalized research too. Have any fellow forum members participated in experiments or found journal articles worth sharing? I'd be excited to learn from your experiences! 🧠✨ Thanks for starting this valuable conversation! 🙏📝 Keep us posted on any great findings you come across!
