Many books about the Enneagram personality typing system focus on self-understanding and personal growth, but few focus on how the Enneagram can help people of differing personality types get along. This easy-to-read cartoon-illustrated book goes into detail about what every type likes and dislikes about every other type, which types are most likely to pair up in romantic relationships, and how partners, friends, and coworkers can best support people of different types. It also explores how the ...more

Like the previous title by the same authors, this is a good book if you don't expect too much. There is some repeated information from the other book, mainly for figuring out your number if you're still uncertain, but the emphasis is definitely on how each number relates to another. The relationship examples seem to be predominantly relevant to romantic relationships, but any close relationship could benefit as well. I found the information about common traits in relationships between numbers he ...more

I enjoy reading about personality types and theories and a friend recommended I check out this book. I had never heard of the Enneagram model for personalities before and after reading this I found it to be a little bit disappointing. Each type is vague and overlaps quite a bit with the other types and they give you lots of wiggle room to fit into each one. It felt more like a choose your own adventure of personalities. There is no scientific basis for any of it. That being said, I'm not sure ma ...more

This book is an excellent tool for authors. I have used it to help define my characters in my last four manuscripts, and it has helped me "get to know" them before I write the first word.

Are You My Type, Am I Yours is a psychology book that contains nine basic personality types. It details the best and worst attribute of each type, gives a personality inventory and talks about social and relational characteristics. One of the things I like best is at the end of each personality description, it

I got to meet one of the authors when she came to my clinical book club. Cool! I'm finding that the more books I sample on the enneagram the better handle I get about what it is and the potential for illumination that it provides. This book was particularly interesting b/c it talks about what each number type is looking for in relationship and hits on how different ppl of different numbers interact when in relationship. Especially interesting are the appendixes that correlate the Myers-Briggs ty ...more

I generally prefer the more conceptual writing on the subject, but this was a lot of fun to read! And, it does give some good advice on how different personality types can better get along with each other.

A bit of cheeseball to it, I still like this book and refer to it often. It's great for when people need some "Enneagram Lite" explanations. Plus the drawings are cute.
