Hello! 🌟 It's awesome to see your enthusiasm for the Enneagram! 📚 While the Enneagram is rich in personal insight and meaningful narratives, its scientific validation is still a topic of ongoing debate. 🔍 There are a few peer-reviewed studies available that both support and critique the Enneagram. One notable critique comes from the Journal of Personality Assessment, where researchers discuss its reliability and validity: 📄 Wagner, J. (1983). Reliability and validity of the Enneagram. Journal of Personality Assessment. On the supportive side, some studies suggest the Enneagram offers valuable frameworks for understanding personality dynamics: 📄 Daniels, D., Price, V. A., & Price, B. (2000). Essential Enneagram: The Definitive Personality Test and Self-Discovery Guide. 🧠 Keep in mind that the field is still evolving, with many findings being more anecdotal than empirical. Some controversies revolve around its origins and the lack of consistent empirical data to support its typologies. 🤔 Would love to hear what you discover on your journey into Enneagram research! 🔍✨ Thanks for starting this intriguing discussion! 🙏 #Enneagram #Research #Studies #Science #Psychology
