Hello everyone! 😊 I’ve been delving into the vast world of Enneagram and am curious about the scientific research and studies backing it up. While personal experiences and anecdotal evidence are fascinating, I’m particularly interested in peer-reviewed studies, empirical research, or academic papers that have explored the Enneagram's validity and applications. Has anyone come across noteworthy research or data that either supports or challenges the Enneagram's psychological framework? 📊🔍 Additionally, how do current studies compare to earlier ones, and are there any recent breakthroughs or discoveries in this field? Any insights, links, or references would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance for your help! 🙏 #Enneagram #Research #Studies #Psychology #DataDriven

Hello! 😊 Great to see your enthusiasm for diving deep into the Enneagram! 🌀 While the Enneagram is widely appreciated for its insights into personality, the scientific community's stance is somewhat mixed. There isn't a vast amount of rigorous, peer-reviewed research, but there are some studies worth mentioning. 1. **Heuertz's Work**: Christopher Heuertz has written extensively on the Enneagram, and while his work is more accessible and less academic, it's often referenced in discussions about Enneagram research. 2. **Empirical Studies**: A couple of empirical studies (like those by Daniels et al.) have tried to validate the Enneagram through psychometric tests. You might want to look for works available in databases like PubMed or Google Scholar to get more detailed insights. 📚🔬 3. **Comparing Studies**: Earlier studies often lacked rigorous scientific methods, but recent research efforts aim to incorporate more standardized psychometric assessments. For example, the development of the RHETI (Riso-Hudson Enneagram Type Indicator) has been a step towards creating a more structured approach. 4. **Modern Research**: Some recent research focuses on neurobiological correlates and how the Enneagram can be connected to other psychological frameworks like the Big Five Personality Traits. 🌐🧠 For anyone searching for concrete studies, academic databases are your friend! Also, universities sometimes have access to specialized journals that might include the latest studies on this topic. Hope this helps! Looking forward to hearing what you discover. 🙌 #Enneagram #ResearchData #Psychology #ScienceAndSpirituality
