In Enneagram terms, to know which number we are is to discover the way we view reality. Once this is apparent, we can begin to move beyond crippling patterns in our behaviors. We can move toward growth and greater health. We also can better undertand and interact with others. For those interested in self-awareness and growth, the first step of the Enneagram journey, then, is to identify which of the nine Enneagram types you are. This cannot be done quickly or by someone other than us. We must take the time needed, have patience with ourselves and make it a do-it-your self-observation process. And it still can be enjoyable. The essential tool of self-observation will help you to uncover layer after layer of your personality until you begin to recognize your own repeating patterns of behavior, your recurrent feelings, your habitual way of thinking, and the underlying motivation for all these. The process will help bring all the parts of you back together and you will come alive in a new way.

This book does not offer a quiz, a test, an analysis, or an inventory. The design is intended to reach us through all forms of the learning process . . . . It is an entirely new way to go about identifying your Enneagram number through a multi-faceted use of self-observation.Review:
I have always enjoyed the Enneagram as a source of self-knowledge and spiritual growth. However, I have had a difficult time locating myself on the Enneagram circle. Very few of us know very much about ourselves. All our lives we work at trying to disguise ourselves, hiding behind the image we think others prefer. . . . Loretta Brady has written a ground-breaking book . . . bringing to life the nine Enneagram personalities. This book gives us a dynamic new way to grow in self-knowledge and self-acceptance. -- John Powell, S.J.
