"The Positive Enneagram: A New Approach to the Nine Personality Types," introduces a new way of working with the enneagram, a system that describes nine core motivations that shape our lives in profound ways. Each of us is particularly influenced by the energy of one of these types. So determining our main type can enhance self-understanding, improve our relationships, and help us find direction in life. The book is packed with information. It succinctly describes the enneagram types, subtypes, wing types, energy centers, and connecting points; most chapters include easy-to-read charts and illustrations summarizing key points. The last two chapters are particularly innovative: one demonstrates how to link the personality and process enneagrams; the other focuses on ways to use the enneagram to become more integrated, creative, and attuned. The appendix includes three tests: two for determining type and one for determining subtype. But "The Positive Enneagram" does more than simply describe the types. It describes them in a way that makes a persuasive case for seeing them in a positive light (more as "energy types" than "ego types"). It's this dynamic, energy-focused approach that makes the book unique-and that gives it a freshness that will appeal to a variety of readers.

Susan Rhodes looks at the enneagram through a positive psychology lens and opens up new territory. A great read for novices and experts alike-the first really innovative book on the enneagram in years. It's not particularly precise about the nature of each type, but the style of presentation and metaphors used are great for people new to the idea. For instance, Rhodes makes the correlation of Fire~Gut, Water~Heart, Air~Head to describe the three triads. This is an amazingly apt simplification to capture the energy of these three triads, but it is still a simplification.

Type Four: The Deep Sea Diver (From The Positive Enneagram by Susan Rhodes). Fours are sometimes called Romantics or Tragic Romantics. But while Fours tend to be intense and dramatic, they aren't really all that romantic.

If you’re interested in the general philosophy of Enneagrams and its position relative to similar philosophies, this complex read can be a very valuable resource

About the Book: I developed The Positive Enneagram because it's the kind of book I wanted to read when I first encountered the enneagram: a book that focused on the nine types as nine sources of positive energy and inspiration.

Like most enneagram authors, I provide detailed descriptions of the types, subtypes, wing types, energy centers, and connecting points; I also include several free tests for determining your type and subtype. But I also take a radically innovative approach when exploring each topic.

Talk about The Positive Enneagram: A New Approach to the Nine Personality Types

I really liked how at the end, Susan Rhodes described how the Enneagram can be seen as the stages in an open system creative process. I wish they taught this in project management classes. It can so be applied to the creative process used in IT to go from vision to release of a product. I copied those pages and posted them on my wall so that I have a visual reminder. Whenever I lose focus on where we're at with the project - I ground myself by determining where on the enneagram we are at. This also helps explain why I slot in so well at certain stages of a project! My personality naturally lends itself to certain stages. Highly recommend!

What a delightful and pleasant surprise. While searching for additional information about a subtype class, I found The Positive Enneagram.

I use the Enneagram as one of the tools to help people transform and move beyond their automatic responses to life. People have asked why the Enneagram seems so negative and why they don't feel better after learning about the themselves from the Enneagram. The Positive Enneagram answers this question and provides an understanding focused on gifts instead of what is "wrong" with me.

This book presents a new way of viewing the power of the Enneagram that fits easily into living with spiritual maturity while leaving behind the old ideas of vices and virtues. It may not be a book for everyone because it is not about fixing or laying down our perceived flaws, but about using the Enneagram to see our core gifts and the gifts from our wings, energy lines, and subtypes.

I have read a lot of Enneagram books over the years. The Positive Enneagram is complete with depth and a simplicity that makes it easily understandable. Many of her examples are personal stories that clearly reinforce the point she is making.

I am very grateful that Susan Rhodes had the courage and creativity to bring this book forward.

This is the book we will use in future classes. It is a book that invites and inspires.

This author seems confused about what actually constitutes each type. Even though she has a chapter on the differentiation between enneatypes and instincts, she doesn't seem to incorporate such understandings in her type descriptions. Her explanations of the types are vague and largely anecdotal and lacking clear explanations as to what the underlying structures are. Everything stays on the surface with no logical arguments to back up her claims. I'm sure the author is a lovely person (and she really does come across as very likeable), which is probably why so many people have given this book such high praise. I find it to be sub-par, though, and I would not recommend it to someone who isn't already very familiar with the Enneagram. If a person uses this book to determine their enneatype, chances are that they will mistype themselves. The concept of merging Gurdjieff's enneagram teachings with the enneagram of personality is interesting, but not very well developed.

I have studied both Ken Wilber and Integral Life Practices and the enneagram. It was very interesting to see how the author brought the 2 systems together and gave the enneagram a positive ongoing purpose. My book group of 4 friends are going to study it together this fall and it should lead to some great discussions.

This book serves as a good introduction to the Enneagram of Personality. It's not particularly precise about the nature of each type, but the style of presentation and metaphors used are great for people new to the idea.

For instance, Rhodes makes the correlation of Fire~Gut, Water~Heart, Air~Head to describe the three triads. This is an amazingly apt simplification to capture the energy of these three triads, but it is still a simplification. Moreover, while the metaphor itself is explained very well, replete with all the apparent exceptions to the rule, beyond this other authors have done a more thorough job in explaining the types.

Highly recommended as an introductory text; not recommended as a serious reference

The book is rather informative on the Enneagram. However, I think that when the author is referring to "positive" aspects of the personalities, what she is actually describing are the heathly levels (1-4) of development that Riso and Hudson describe in their books. Surely, when you are in the lower-average and unhealthy stages, not much "positiveness" is going on. Otherwise, the book is worth reading.
This book is excellent in that it approaches the Enneagram from a powerfully affirming point of view. I highly recommend!
