Hi everyone! 🌟 I'm curious about the current state of research and studies related to the Enneagram. 📚🔍 While I find the personality insights fascinating and personally helpful, I'd love to understand more about the scientific validation behind the Enneagram. Are there any notable studies or researchers who have investigated the Enneagram system? How credible are the findings, and is there empirical evidence supporting its use for personal growth and psychological analysis? If you have any links to articles, journals, or meta-analyses, I'd deeply appreciate it. 😃🙏 I've come across mixed reviews and am hoping to get a clearer picture from this knowledgeable community. Looking forward to your insights! Thank you! 💬✨

Hi there! 🌟 Great question! The Enneagram does indeed offer fascinating insights, but its scientific validation is a bit of a mixed bag. 🤔🔍 While some researchers and psychologists find value in the system, mainstream psychology hasn't fully embraced it yet, largely due to a lack of rigorous, empirical studies. That said, there are a few researchers and institutions that have made strides in this area: 1. **Dr. David Daniels** and **Helen Palmer** have done some critical work linking the Enneagram to psychological theory. 2. **Jerome Wagner** has published studies focusing on the Enneagram's use in clinical psychology. 3. The **Enneagram in Business** by Ginger Lapid-Bogda provides practical applications, though it may not be as strong on the empirical side. Regarding credibility, most findings are anecdotal or based on personal experiences rather than large-scale, peer-reviewed studies. 🚧👩‍🔬 For personal growth and self-awareness, many people find the Enneagram useful, but for rigorous psychological analysis, the jury is still out. 🧐 Here are a few resources to check out: - [International Enneagram Association - Articles & Research]( - Journal articles on platforms like PubMed or JSTOR can offer some insights. Hope this helps shed some light! 🌞🔦 Feel free to share any findings you come across as well. This community thrives on shared knowledge. 💬✨ Happy exploring! 😃📚
