This video explains why understanding and using the System of the Enneagram is super helpful in understanding ourselves and others. In my experience, the knowledge of Enneagram provides a colourful and helpful tool to find the way in the labyrinth of understanding and embracing oneself as is.
I have investigated numerous personality typology systems and I found the Enneagram to be the most helpful. This system does not try to put you in a box of a certain type but rather it allows you to explore who you are in your Essence and realize what limits you to live that part of you fully.
This post intends to help you to understand the System of the Enneagram and find your character via Cartoon Characters. What fun!!! I personally found it very easy to realize which character I may be just by watching these cartoon figures. So, which one do you feel dawn to? Or which one repel you? These questions are your guiding lights! 🙂
Well, let’s start with a short introduction to the System of the Enneagram. There are a lot of books about the Enneagram. My favourite is The Wisdom of the Enneagram by Riso+Hudson but I also like the Sacred Enneagram by Christopher L Heuertz. Further down you can find some video examples of ordinary people talking about their own type as well as videos of famous people of different Enneagram Types.
All that I am sharing on this page is based on my personal experiences and observations. I am sorry if you find some of my observations upsetting or ‘not nice’. My intention is to demonstrate how these different characters limit the greatness of who we truly are.
Our defence mechanisms are not ‘nice’ at all even though we may perceive some of them charming or eloquent. Limitation means that you are hiding the greatness of WHO YOU TRULY ARE behind layers of deceit, a persona that was created in response to a scary world when you were a child. Who you are is much greater than your false identity.
Personally, I would like to challenge you to shed off some layers of your fear based limitations by taking an honest look at your thinking patters and behaviours. So you can become the magnificent human being of who you are at your higher octaves!
