    Default Family Enneagram Types

    One of the things I've found myself wondering lately is about Enneagram types within family units. I know there hasn't been much research done on this, but I find it interesting to speculate.

    Is is common or rare for a parent and child to be the same type? Do the parent's types effect what the children's types will be? Does an older sibling's type? Thoughts?

    My Mother is a 2w3, My Dad is an 8w7, My older brother is a 6 (I think), and I'm a 4w5.

    I think my dad is 5w4, and my mom typed herself as a 7w6 although I'm not that sure about it.

    Welcome!

    Here's a thing on relationship between parent/child and Enneagram. May or may not be useful or right, but there it is.

    My answers were probably different the last time I was polled, but I'm decently confident in these.
    • 2w1 sp/so (mom)
    • 6w7 so/sp (dad)
    • 3w4 so/sp (moi)
    • 7w8 sx/so (sis)
    • 8w7 so/sx (bro)

    Lots o' 7 and 8 all up in this joint. I didn't get any of that; no idea where the hell I came from.

    Me: 5w4 sp/sx (to my best knowledge)
    Brother: probably a 9, but might be a 5, sp/so
    Mom: either a 1 or 6, sp/??
    Dad: either a 1, 5, or 9, so/sp

    (I can't cite with certainty any enneagram number for my family, as everyone's relatively closed-off from one another, in terms of *really* knowing each other)

    Thanks for responding guys! So I guess in general, two of the same type in an average sized family is not a common thing.

    Thanks bologna, that article is SO interesting! I think the base of what they are saying is true (and makes sense) but life events also must play a huge part.
