Hey everyone! 🌟 I've been diving into the world of the Enneagram lately and am particularly interested in the scientific research and studies related to it. 📚🔍 While there's a ton of anecdotal evidence and personal testimonials, I was wondering if anyone could point me toward any validated research papers or academic studies that explore the Enneagram. Areas I'm particularly curious about include: - Psychological evaluations or assessments validating the Enneagram as a tool - Longitudinal studies that track personal growth using the Enneagram - Any cross-cultural research on how Enneagram types manifest differently in various cultures 🌍 Additionally, if there are any reputable scholars or institutions that are leading in this field, I'd love to know about them too! Thanks in advance for any pointers or resources you might share. 🙏 Looking forward to diving deeper! Cheers,
