For those of you who are not familiar with the Enneagram, it’s a personality profiling system that dates back to the early Christian mystics, Sufis, and probably long before that. It was brought to modern awareness by Oscar Ichazo and further developed by Don Richard Riso and Russ Hudson, who are well known for their writings on it today.
The Enneagram consists of nine personality types. Each type is defined by its core desire and core fear. Just for fun, here are the probable Enneagram types of one hundred famous authors.
Type 1 – The Reformer
Ones are driven by their desire to be good and their fear of being corrupt or evil. They tend to have strong ethics, high standards, and, if healthy, a propensity for fighting for justice.
