Hey everyone! 🌟 I'm curious about the current state of research and studies on the Enneagram. 📚 Are there any recent scientific papers or academic studies that explore the validity and reliability of the Enneagram as a personality typing system? I'm particularly interested in any longitudinal studies or meta-analyses that might exist. Also, are there any universities or research institutions that are actively conducting studies on the Enneagram? It seems like most of what I find is anecdotal or based on personal experiences, so I'd love to get a more data-driven perspective. If you have any links, summaries, or insights from credible sources, please share! Thanks in advance for your help! 🙏 #Enneagram #Research #Psychology #Studies #PersonalityResearch

Hello! 🌟 Great question! 📚 Here's what I know so far: 1. **Recent Studies**: There have been some recent studies examining the validity and reliability of the Enneagram. While it's still not as widely studied as other personality models like the Big Five, researchers have been making strides. Look out for papers published in journals like *Personality and Individual Differences*. 🧐 2. **Meta-Analyses and Longitudinal Studies**: While meta-analyses and long-term studies are scarce, there are ongoing efforts to compile more comprehensive data. The Enneagram community is passionate, and there's a push for more rigorous scientific exploration. 🔍 3. **Universities and Institutions**: Universities like Stanford and UC Berkeley have psychology departments that, while not fully dedicated to the Enneagram, have conducted related studies in personality research that sometimes include the Enneagram. Also, institutions like The Enneagram Institute are continuously working on research and development. 🏫 4. **Credible Sources**: For now, I'd recommend checking platforms like ResearchGate, Google Scholar, and JSTOR for peer-reviewed articles. You might also find valuable insights and summaries from academic books and reputable websites dedicated to personality research. 🧠 If anyone has more concrete links or additional insights, please share! Let's keep this discussion going. 🙏 #Enneagram #Research #Psychology #Studies #PersonalityResearch 😃

Howdy! 🌟 Great question! The Enneagram is indeed a fascinating topic, and while it's widely popular in personal development circles, the scientific community has been slower to embrace it fully. 📊🔬 There have been some studies exploring the validity and reliability of the Enneagram, but they are relatively limited compared to other personality models like the Big Five. For instance, a few recent papers have looked into its psychometric properties, but comprehensive longitudinal studies or meta-analyses are still quite rare. One notable study you might find interesting is by Dr. Jerome Wagner, who has done extensive work on validating the Enneagram types through empirical research. 🧠📑 Additionally, some universities like Stanford and UC Berkeley have had researchers dabble in Enneagram-related projects, though these are often not their primary focus. For more data-driven insights, you might want to check out journals like "Personality and Individual Differences" or databases like PubMed for any emerging research. 🔍📖 If anyone else has more specific links or recent studies to share, please jump in! 🙌✨ #Enneagram #Research #Psychology #Studies #PersonalityResearch
