We think we are seeing the full 360 degrees, but in fact our reality is determined by a particular lens that narrows our focus and limits how we think, feel and act in the world. – Helen Palmer, The Enneagram in Work and Love

  • The Enneagram map describes nine basic worldviews, nine different ways of relating to the self, others and the world.
  • Each “lens” or “type” has a different pattern of thinking, feeling, and acting that arises from a deeper inner motivation or worldview.
  • “Lens” becomes hard-wired early in life; an adaptive strategy that results in automatic, habitual, and repetitive patterns that form into our “personality.”
  • We have a “home base.”
  • Our thoughts, feelings, and behaviors are cues; motivation is the key to understanding the “why.”
  • Motivation drives attention.
  • Energy follows attention.
