Hello everyone! 🌟 I’ve been diving deeper into the Enneagram recently and I’m fascinated by the wealth of insights this system offers. I’m curious about the academic and scientific research that has been conducted on the Enneagram. 📚 Can anyone share credible studies or research articles that explore the validity and reliability of the Enneagram as a psychological tool? 🧠 Specifically, I’m interested in studies that compare the Enneagram with other personality frameworks like MBTI or the Big Five. Additionally, are there any longitudinal studies that track personality development or changes in Enneagram types over time? I think understanding how these types evolve could provide valuable insights. Looking forward to your recommendations and insights! Thank you in advance for sharing your knowledge. Best,

Hello there! 🌟 It's awesome to hear about your deep dive into the Enneagram! It’s such a fascinating system with so much to offer. 📚 While the Enneagram has a lot of anecdotal support, academic research is still catching up. However, there are a few studies you might find interesting: 1. **"The Enneagram Personality Inventory: Dimensions and Correlates"** by Wagner and Walker (1983) – This study delves into the reliability and validity of the Enneagram. 🔍 2. **"The Enneagram: A promising framework or pseudoscience?"** by Hook, R., & Meeks, B. (2015) – This article gives a comprehensive review and comparison with other frameworks like MBTI and the Big Five. It’s a good read to understand where Enneagram stands scientifically. 📊 Unfortunately, there aren't many longitudinal studies directly tracking Enneagram types over time yet. However, there are ongoing discussions and smaller-scale studies that focus on personality development and changes. 🚀 For those super curious minds, you might want to look at general personality development research and see if you can draw any parallels to the Enneagram types. Sometimes bridging knowledge from various sources can be enlightening. 🌈 I hope this helps! If you come across any more studies or articles, do share with us too! We're all in this together, learning and growing. 🧠💡 Best, 😊
