The Enneagram of Personality, or simply the Enneagram (from the Greek words ἐννέα [ennea, meaning “nine”] and γράμμα [gramma, meaning something “written” or “drawn”]), is a model of human personality which is principally understood and taught as a typology of nine interconnected personality types.
In the book the author utilizes the Enneagram system to help teens and tweens better understand themselves and their developing identities. Since adolescence is an intensely challenging time, the author offers tweens, teens, parents, and other adults significant in a young person’s life a vehicle by which to engage in an open-ended conversation. Topics often difficult to discuss, such as developing an identity, choosing a life path, and making personal choices, are explored through the lens of the Enneagram. By the end of the book the reader will better understand her/himself and others, have a clearer understanding of her/his inner life, and be able to use self-awareness to make more effective personal choices and decisions.
