Pub. Date:
" The Enneagram is an extraordinary framework for understanding more about ourselves. No matter from which point of view we approach it, we discover fresh conjunctions of new and old ideas." So writes Don Riso in this expanded edition of his classic interpretation of the Enneagram, the ancient psychological system used to understand the human personality. In addition to updating the descriptions of the nine personality types, Personality Types, Revised greatly expands the accompanying guidelines and, for the first time, uncovers the Core Dynamics, or Levels of Development, within each type. This skeletal system provides far more information about the inner tension and movements of the nine personalities than has previously been published. This increased specificity will allow therapists, social workers, personnel managers, students of the Enneagram, and general readers alike to use it with much greater precision as they unlock the secrets of self-understanding, and thus self-transformation.

display_description Personality Types has become the indispensable resource in the field of Enneagram studies, as well as a cherished classic in the literature of personal growth around the world. This second edition is not only a monumental intellectual achievement, it is a landmark in the history of psychology and human understanding. For the first time, the landscape of human personality has been completely mapped out-from the high-functioning states of ego transcendence to the depths of pathology. Unequaled in the Enneagram field, the authors provide precise and comprehensive systematic descriptions of each personality type, as well as new, expanded descriptions of each type's major subtypes and its Directions of Integration and Disintegration. This entirely revised edition reveals new insights, including the authors' revolutionary discovery, the Core Dynamics, which give the specific motivations, attitudes, fears, and desires at each of the nine internal Levels of Development for each type, as well as the parental influences on each type, an expanded history of the Enneagram, new material on the Instinctual Variants, and much, much more.
