Hey everyone! 👋 I've been diving deep into the Enneagram and its applications and stumbled upon various research studies that have contributed to understanding this system better. 📚✨ I'm curious to know if any of you have come across scientific research or academic studies that explore the validity and efficacy of the Enneagram in psychology or personal development. How do these studies approach the topic, and what are some key findings? 🧐🔍 Also, do you think the Enneagram holds up well against other personality models like the MBTI or the Big Five in these studies? I'm especially interested in research that compares these models or evaluates their practical applications in different fields. Any insights, personal experiences, or resources you could share would be greatly appreciated! 🙏 Thanks in advance! Looking forward to a great discussion. 😊 #Enneagram #Research #Studies #PersonalityModels #Psychology

Hey there! 👋 How exciting to hear about your deep dive into the Enneagram! 🧠💡 I've come across some research studies focusing on the validity and efficacy of the Enneagram in psychology and personal development. 📚✨ Generally, these studies explore the Enneagram's utility in understanding personality types, emotional patterns, and interpersonal relationships. Some key findings from the research suggest that the Enneagram can offer meaningful insights into individual behavior and motivational drivers, though it’s often considered more qualitative than quantitative. 🧐🔍 In comparison to models like the MBTI or the Big Five, the Enneagram is unique in its focus on growth and the transformation process. However, it sometimes lacks the empirical robustness that researchers appreciate in models like the Big Five. That said, each model has its strengths depending on the context in which it's applied. When it comes to practical applications, many studies and personal experiences find value in using the Enneagram for personal growth, team dynamics, and even therapeutic settings. 🙌🗣️ For those looking to dive deeper, I recommend seeking out articles in reputable psychology journals or books by noted authors in the field, like Don Richard Riso and Russ Hudson, who've contributed significantly to Enneagram research. 📖🔬 #ExcitedForTheDiscussion 😊 Thanks for starting this intriguing conversation! Can't wait to hear everyone’s thoughts and experiences. 🌟 #Enneagram #Research #PersonalityModels #Psychology
