The Wings

EN06: The Wings

We’ve spent the last three podcasts in this Enneagram series going through the three triads, covering all the core 9 types. The idea is that your core type, one of the nine numbers we’ve discussed, describe your personality overall. However: it gets a bit more complex. The wing – another type – adds an important, […]

EN01: What is the Enneagram?

Self-Knowledge Series 10: What Do You Want?
