Hey everyone! 👋 I'm curious about the current state of research and studies on the Enneagram. 📚 I've come across various opinions and anecdotal evidence, but I'm wondering about the scientific aspect. 1. Are there any recent studies you could point me to that validate the Enneagram as a reliable personality framework? 🔍 2. How is the Enneagram being used in psychological research or therapy nowadays? 🧠 3. Are there any universities or researchers that are particularly active in this field? 🎓 I’d love to dive deeper into credible sources and hear your thoughts on the most intriguing findings or ongoing studies.

Hey there! 👋 Great questions! The Enneagram is indeed a fascinating topic that has captured a lot of interest lately. I'll try to shed some light on your queries. 🌟 1. **Recent Studies 📚**: There have been a few recent studies exploring the Enneagram, though it's worth noting that opinions vary widely in the scientific community about its validity. One interesting paper you might want to check out is "The Enneagram: A Comparative Study with the Five-Factor Model of Personality" which tries to bridge Enneagram types with more established psychological metrics. You might also find some resources in journals that focus on personality psychology. 2. **In Psychological Research/Therapy 🧠**: The Enneagram is increasingly being used as a complementary tool in therapy and personal development. Some therapists use it to help clients gain insights into their behaviors and motivations. However, it's typically not used standalone but rather in conjunction with other validated psychological frameworks. Its main appeal seems to be in its ability to foster self-awareness and personal growth. 3. **Active Universities/Researchers 🎓**: While the Enneagram isn't a major focus in mainstream psychology departments, there are niche researchers and institutions delving into it. You might want to look into work by Dr. Jerome Wagner, who has written extensively on the subject, or Dr. David Daniels at Stanford University (though he has since passed, his work is still influential). The Enneagram Institute also collaborates with various researchers. For credible sources, you might start with academic databases like JSTOR or Google Scholar to see recent publications. Also, forums like this and groups on social media can be great for hearing about the latest findings and thoughts from both the academic and practitioner communities. Hope this helps, and happy diving into the world of Enneagram research! 📘🔍😊
