Enneagram Notepage


This is a working page for my notes on the enneagram. I work on it quite sporadically and different parts of it will reflect my understanding of different times. Through this page I hope to improve my own understanding and maybe also prove helpful to those who share my interest. My interest is in the enneagram as a method of modelling processes rather than just with its use in classifying personality types (and "essence types"). This will be an irritating site if you are looking for something pre-packaged; sadly I do not believe there is much on the "enneagram of process" in pre-packaged form and this site may even be the best available!

If you already know about the enneagram and just want to skip to what this site has especially to offer, you might like to start at theLifestage Enneagram.This site used to say "If you have somehow reached this site without knowing anything about the enneagram you might like to look at Dave's Enneagram Pages for a general introduction, in particular to the "enneagram of personality"." Actually, you won't, because that excellent page has now disappeared. Google "enneagram" though and you will find many introductory sites.

This site also has said If you are interested in the matter of this site then please consider joining the

Octave and Enneagram Mailing List

. The archives are open. Apart from using the link just provided, you can subscribe to the List by sending any e-mail to the following address:

That list has also gone a bit off the track. So all in all a bit of revision to this site is required...

The Enneagram & Octave List used to use Listbot software. The archives from that old incarnation of the list are now shut-down finished and kaput. A few odds and ends salvaged from the archives can be found in the Storage Page.

The enneagram and process

What it says, a collectionof some of my notes on this.

The Lifestage Enneagram

Relating the process enneagram to the personality enneagram.

A new page about the Fibonacci Progression

and its relation to the enneagram that I've just added from the archives of the Octave &Enneagram e-mailing list . Simple, modest....but groundbreaking. If you're response to that is "What is the Fibonacci Progression and why might I care?...then: Check out this excellent Fibonacci site that will explain what the Fibonacci Progression is and why it is important.

Syncretism and chakras you will find my nomination for the 'mystic Rosetta stone' so to speak... plus a few self-cautionary words. The Kabbalistic attributions are likely to be particularly controversial. I offer them with all due caution and humility, of course; but not at all frivolously or thoughtlessly.

Introducing the Celtic Enneagram

Here is a picture of one, pity you can't see it. Never mind, follow the link for a description

You've never heard of the Celtic enneagram? Where've ya been, mate? That's a picture of it above anyway. Follow the link for further discussion.....Some confusing typos on this page have been corrected.

Links to other sites on the Web


This is me with children in late 2006, by the way.

While we are on the subject of me, the box below shows my supposed type according to the Meyer-Briggs system, which has an interesting relationship to the enneagram which I hope to explore further on this site. The box is also a link to an abbreviated or unauthorised version of the Meyer-Briggs questionnaire. In my case at least it came up with the same result as the legit questionnaire.
