Hey folks! I've been diving deeper into studying different models of personality systems particularly the Enneagram. I've come across several research articles and studies grounded on psychological analysis and various methodologies. Though some discussions have been thought-provoking, I'm curious to explore more in-depth academic resources or published findings, if any, centered around the Enneagram Model. Could anyone suggest credible research papers, studies, or authors who have significantly contributed to the Enneagram research? Additionally, are there any universities or institutions known for conducting these kinds of studies? I am especially keen on the scientific validity and empirical evidence supporting the Enneagram. Thanks in advance for sharing! 🙂
