    Default Memories of Don Richard Riso (1946-2012)

    Riso, who considered himself a 4w3, died of cancer on August 30th.

    It is with great sadness that we write to let you know that Don passed away on August 30th at 2:07 AM in his home in Stone Ridge, New York. When the time was noted, Russ noticed that the numbers added up to nine—a tribute to Don’s life with the Enneagram.
    My first memories of the man's work came from reading Personality Types in the early 1990s after a friend went to a conference that I believe featured Riso himself as a speaker, if not as THE speaker. My friend told me that Riso disliked sixes.

    What are your first memories of him or his work?

    Riso was, like, "The man" to me when I first started reading about Enneagram. His stuff was pretty foundational to me, especially the cycles of integration and disintegration; it was a nice blend of the spiritual with the secular. There was a lot of what I would deem "crap" floating around about the enneagram before then; I think he seriously systemized the theory and put out the first very detailed, cohesive descriptions of how the types worked, along with wings and variants. I started taking it seriously because of his work.

    He put out a number of enneagram texts; I know I own 2-3 of the major ones.

    It's a shame he has passed on. he was younger than my father, who is still around.

    From a distance, he actually held his age pretty well:



    EDIT: As a complete side note, no one ever told me that Russ Hudson was cute.

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    That he dislikes sixes? I only recall his name from a few articles I have read.

    Does anyone particularly like sixes?


    Enneagram is fascinating.

    It is, I actually learnt a lot about myself while I figured out my type.

    That's really sad. He along with Russ Hudson wrote some seminal works on the enneagram. He will be greatly missed in the enneagram community.

    Too bad he dislikes sixes. As a proponent of the enneagram, shouldn't he know better not to show bias towards certain types?
