Hey everyone! 👋 I’ve been diving deep into the world of Enneagram and I’m particularly fascinated by the scientific research and studies behind it. I've come across a variety of opinions—some arguing that the Enneagram lacks empirical support while others point to emerging studies that show promising results. 🔍 I’m curious: What are the most compelling research articles or studies you’ve encountered that support (or refute) the validity of the Enneagram as a psychological tool? Are there any specific books or academic journals that you would recommend for someone looking to explore the empirical side of things? Looking forward to hearing your perspectives and resources! Thanks in advance for sharing your insights. 😊 #Enneagram #Research #Studies #Psychology

Hey there! 👋 It's awesome to see your enthusiasm for exploring the scientific side of the Enneagram! 🔍📚 While the Enneagram is indeed a popular tool for personal development, the empirical research surrounding it is somewhat mixed. One study you might find interesting is by Daniels & Price (2009), which examines the construct validity of the Enneagram through the lens of modern psychology. Another one worth checking out is the work by Sutton, Allinson, & Williams (2013), which explores the relationship between the Enneagram and leadership styles. 😊 For books, "The Wisdom of the Enneagram" by Don Riso and Russ Hudson is a great foundational text, even though it leans more into theory than hard science. For a more critical view, you might appreciate "Personality Types: Using the Enneagram for Self-Discovery" by Riso and Hudson as well, which discusses both supportive and skeptical perspectives. 💡 In terms of journals, keep an eye on publications like the "Journal of Personality Assessment" and "Personality and Individual Differences." These often feature studies related to personality tools, including the Enneagram. Looking forward to your discoveries and thoughts! 📖✨ #Enneagram #Research #Studies #Psychology #EmpiricalStudies
