This book contains releases and affirmations for each type, and has helped my to catch myself in the act. When I am not busy putting on the trappings of my personality, I can be celebrating all the wonderful gifts I have and share myself with others.
Favorite affirmation for Type 2 (The Giver or Helper): "I now affirm my gratitude for all that others have given me."

Favorite affirmation for Type 5 (The Thinker): "I now affirm the strength and wonder of my body."

Favorite affirmation for Type 7 (The Enthusiast or Generalist): "I now affirm that I am profoundly grateful to be alive."

Favorite affirmation for Type 8 (The Leader): "I now affirm that I am most fulfilled by championing others."

A friend of mine, who is a Spiritual Director, teaches courses using the Enneagram for self assessment,and spiritual development. This sparked my interest, so I began reading about it. This book has an excellent short introduction to the Enneagram, but is basically a book of renunciations and affirmations for each of the nine different personality types. I think it is a practical approach to help after identifying your own personality type.
I am a big fan of positive affirmations, they really do work if you make a habit of smiling really big and saying them (and FEELING them!!!) each day, several times a day. This book is full of affirmations specifically tailored to each enneagram type (I found the 7's very helpful!) and the kinds of physical and emotional challenges we face that are unique to our specific type.

I read this once before in graduate school as it was required for a class. I was not impressed and sold it back - but only because I was not in a place in my life to appreciate and use it. Circumstances are very different for me now and it provides an interesting perspective on personalities which can help you better relate to others and yourself.
These daily affirmations really rock and not cheesy like "I'm Good enough & people like me". More like "Wow, get outta my head!" Also gives me so much insight into my significant other's vulnerable spots & how to really shore up the person you love when you feel like you have no idea what to say.
