Enneagram Personality Types

Enneagram personality types each have distinct characteristics that describe motivations and predispositions for behavior.

Enneagram Personality Types, which are often referred to as "points," are simply nine different personality profiles that fixate around a specific viewpoint, hence the word, "point."

Each Enneagram point has a particular orientation that directs all thinking, feeling and acting.  This orientation is what motivates each Enneagram type to behave in a very specific manner, which is fundamentally different from all the other Enneagram points.
