Q – What does the 12 Type Enneagram do?
A – It depicts our essence energy. We are all one or another essence energy, called Type.
Q – Is it the same as astrology?
A – No. Astrology relies on knowing our birthdate details. The influences wax and wane. The Essence type revealed by the 12-Type Enneagram is CONSTANT – therefore it is a much more reliable tool for understanding.
Q – Is it the same as the various 9 Type Enneagram systems?
A – No. All the 9 Type depictions began by taking the existing diagram and adding knowledge. There is evidence that the 12-Type Enneagram is the original because the reason for the diagram being as such can be EXPLAINED. And unlike ‘personality types’ the 12-Type depicts ESSENCE TYPES
Q – Why is it important?
A – Learning the characteristics of our type explains why we think and do things as we do. It also greatly helps us in understanding why other people are different.
