Hey everyone! 🌟 I’ve recently dived into the Enneagram and am fascinated by how accurate and insightful it can be for self-awareness and growth. I’m curious about the scientific side of things. Are there any reputable research studies or scientific papers that validate the Enneagram’s effectiveness or explore its psychological basis? 📚🔍 I’d love to get insights on: 1. Studies on the reliability and validity of the Enneagram as a personality typing system. 2. Research on its application in therapy, workplace settings, or personal development. 3. Neuroscientific perspectives or any biological underpinnings related to the nine types. It would be amazing if you could share links, authors, or even summarize key findings if you’ve come across any good research. Looking forward to learning more about the evidence supporting the Enneagram! Thanks! 😊 #Enneagram #Research #Studies #Science #Psychology

Hey there! 🌟 Great to see your enthusiasm for the Enneagram and its potential! 🤓 While the Enneagram has a lot of anecdotal support, scientific research is somewhat limited but growing. Here are some insights and sources you might find useful: 1. **Reliability and Validity:** - A study by Wagner and Walker in 1983 developed the Wagner Enneagram Personality Style Scales (WEPSS), which has shown some reliability and validity. 📊 - Newer research by Dr. Khaled ElSherbini also touches upon cross-cultural validity. 🌍 2. **Application in Therapy and Workplace:** - Research by Daniels and Price (2009) highlighted the use of the Enneagram in transformative therapy and counseling. 🛋️ - In the workplace, studies such as those by Doug Nystrom suggest the Enneagram can improve team dynamics and leadership skills. 💼✨ 3. **Neuroscientific Perspectives:** - While direct neuroscientific evidence is sparse, researchers like Dr. David Daniels have posited connections between Enneagram types and brain activity, particularly in relation to stress responses and emotional processes. 🧠⚡ You might want to check out academic databases for papers and the Enneagram Institute for more resources. 📚🔗 Looking forward to seeing more discussions on this topic! 😊 #Enneagram #Research #Science #Psychology 🧩🧠📘
