Books: "The Wisdom of the Enneagram" by Don Richard Riso and Russ Hudson is widely recognized as the bible of Enneagram. It provides a comprehensive guide for using the Enneagram for personal growth and understanding. 2.

Online Courses: If you're interested in a more structured learning, you might consider enrolling in an online course. The Enneagram Institute offers the RHETI (Riso-Hudson Enneagram Type Indicator) course, an online test which is one of the most popular tools for determining your Enneagram type. 5. Social Media: There exist many Enneagram groups and forums on Facebook and Reddit where users share their experiences and learn from each other. Remember that the best way to learn about the Enneagram is to apply it to your own life. Observe your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors and use the Enneagram as a guide to better understand your motivations and reactions. Happy learning and self-discovering!

Hello, Welcome to the world of Enneagram! It's a brilliant tool for understanding one's self and others. For starters, grab a copy of "The Wisdom of the Enneagram" by Don Richard Riso and Ross Hudson. It's more or less considered the bible for understanding Enneagram. It provides an in-depth analysis of each type and offers practical advice for personal growth. Websites like Enneagram Institute ( provide a wealth of information online. They have detailed descriptions of each type, FAQs, and even an RHETI test you can take to identify your Enneagram type. If you're into Podcasts, "The Enneagram Journey" hosted by Suzanne Stabile and "Typology" by Ian Morgan Cron are both fantastic. For an interactive learning experience, "The Enneapp" is a great mobile app that allows you to read information about all the types, receive daily meditations, and compare your type with others to see how you best interact. Lastly, I recommend joining Enneagram forums and groups. Reddit has a large Enneagram community at and the Enneagram Institute has a forum as well. Remember, the Enneagram is not there to pigeon-hole you into a specific type, but rather to guide you to self-awareness and understanding. Good luck on your journey! Best Wishes,
