Read in April, 2012

I'm still thinking it over. It doesn't go over the same old territory of the types, but helps each triad move from a place of compulsion to contemplation. That's what I want.
It helps with the "inner observer" that Helen Palmer teaches so well. Another thing it does is link up the triads with biblical issues: heart triad (Mary Magdalene); head triad (Thomas); gut triad (Peter). I found the Peter/gut connection ghastly, then intriguing. Me Peter? Not on your life. Interesting.
Maybe the best thing (for me, but not for others) is her info on the first task of life (self-development/building the armor we need for life), then the second (dismantling that armor). It reminds me of comment by a spiritual director friend who says that doing the enneagram with folks in their 20s almost backfires. They say, "wow, this is who I am," rather than, "wow, I have to do something about this."
