Anissa Ferris_Deeper Understanding of the Enneagram Personality Types #63

Enneagram Teacher Anissa Ferris

“What I think the Enneagram does is that it really brings you a tool of self-awareness, and I would also say compassion. You really get to see a little bit more than just the structure of somebody. You really get to see the core of who they are, and you can see the struggle that they might have and also celebrate the beauty and joy–the gifts–that you did not really know that person had.” ~Anissa Ferris

This is the second of a two-part series with my guest, Anissa Ferris, focusing on the power of the Enneagram personality tool to create awareness, both for yourself and others, that will transform your relationships and create opportunities for greater meaning and impact.

If you’ve not listened to the previous episode, I highly recommend you do that first to give yourself some background on our discussion. In that first episode, Anissa provided an overview of the Enneagram and why it works so well to create awareness and understanding. But more importantly, she explained how that awareness can help you be more effective while burning less of your emotional energy to get your work done.

In this episode, Anissa, a psychotherapist and certified Enneagram instructor, goes into a description of each of the nine Enneagram personality types and describes the strengths and challenges each type faces, and how they tend to interact with each other. We’ll discuss both the healthy and unhealthy versions of each type, and how each type uses core strengths to most effectively engage in the world. We’ll try to cover in roughly an hour the information Anissa spends a half-day or more going over in the workshops that she leads.
