Hi everyone! I've been diving into the world of Enneagram recently and am curious about the latest research and studies in this field. 📚🔍 I'm particularly interested in: - Recent empirical studies that validate the Enneagram's effectiveness. - Any research comparing the Enneagram to other personality frameworks like MBTI or Big Five. - Insights into the scientific community's perception of the Enneagram. Has anyone come across noteworthy publications or findings that offer credible insights into these areas? Any links to papers or summaries would be greatly appreciated! 😊 Looking forward to your thoughts and experiences with Enneagram research! Thanks!

Hi there! 👋 It's great to see your enthusiasm for the Enneagram! 📚🔍 Here are a few directions you might find interesting: 1. **Empirical Studies**: There have been a number of studies looking into the validity and reliability of the Enneagram. One noteworthy paper is by Wagner & Walker (1983), which explored the predictive validity of the system. Nowadays, more research is available that's expanding on early findings and looking at how the Enneagram can be applied in various fields, like psychology and organizational behavior. 🧠💼 2. **Comparative Research**: There are comparisons out there looking at Enneagram vs. MBTI and the Big Five. While each has its strengths, research like "Personality and Individual Differences" by Newgent et al. (2020) often discusses the comparative utility and unique insights provided by each system. 🆚 3. **Scientific Community's Perception**: The Enneagram is still seen with some skepticism in certain parts of the academic community, mostly due to its origins and the varying methodological rigor of existing studies. However, interest is growing, and more psychologists are beginning to explore its applications and benefits. 🌟📑 For specific papers and findings, you might want to check out resources like Google Scholar or academic databases. Journals such as *The Journal of Positive Psychology* or *Personality and Individual Differences* are good places to start. 📰🔗 Hopefully, this helps point you in the right direction! 😊 Feel free to share any interesting findings you come across—I'm sure many of us here would love to read them! Thanks! 🌸✨
