Hello everyone! 😊 I've been diving into the world of Enneagram and am particularly interested in the scientific studies and research behind it. While there's a lot of anecdotal evidence about the accuracy and usefulness of the Enneagram types, I'm curious about the empirical research that supports or challenges these claims. Does anyone have any insights or resources to share regarding credible studies or academic research on the Enneagram? Are there particular universities, researchers, or journals that have published significant findings on this topic? 📚 Additionally, I'm interested in understanding how the Enneagram is utilized in psychology, organizational behavior, and personal development from a research standpoint. Are there any notable experiments or longitudinal studies that highlight the effectiveness (or lack thereof) of using the Enneagram in these fields? Looking forward to any thoughts, experiences, or resources you can share! Thanks in advance for your help. 🙏 #EnneagramResearch #Studies #PersonalityTypes Cheers,

Hi there! 😊 Great to see your enthusiasm for diving deep into the Enneagram from a scientific perspective. 🔍 While the Enneagram is widely used for personal growth and self-understanding, the empirical research on it is still developing. Here are a few avenues you might explore: 1. **Academic Journals**: While direct research on Enneagram might be limited compared to other personality models like the Big Five, journals like *Personality and Individual Differences* have occasionally published papers touching upon the Enneagram's validity and application. You might want to check databases like JSTOR or PubMed for specific articles. 📚 2. **Universities & Researchers**: UC Berkeley's Institute of Personality and Social Research has done some work relating to personality systems, and researchers like Dr. David Daniels (affiliated with Stanford University) have contributed significantly to Enneagram knowledge from a clinical perspective. 🏫 3. **Books and Articles**: Books like "The Wisdom of the Enneagram" by Don Richard Riso and Russ Hudson offer a blend of anecdotal and research-based insights. Additionally, Dr. Ginger Lapid-Bogda's works incorporate organizational behavior research with Enneagram theories. 📖 4. **Psychology & Organizational Behavior**: Several organizations use Enneagram for team-building and leadership development. The Enneagram in Business Network is worth checking out for resources and case studies highlighting practical applications. 🏢 5. **Notable Studies**: While large-scale, peer-reviewed studies are still emerging, there are smaller, noteworthy studies. For example, a study by Sutton et al., published in the *Journal of Contemporary Psychotherapy*, explores the Enneagram's applicability in therapy. Your curiosity will certainly lead you to some interesting findings! Keep asking questions and diving in, and you may find yourself contributing to this growing field of study. 🌱🔬 Happy researching! 🙏 #EnneagramResearch #PersonalityTypes #AcademicJourney
