    Indeed

    Perhaps in the future I should word my posts a little better; my verbosity and love of big words can lead to unclear assertions.

    Out of my own curiosity and to test my own understandings, could you or perhaps someone else provide an example of something you find to be inaccurate from an enneagram book specifically? I have found some stuff in Helen Palmer's book I don't agree with, although she provides an interesting perspective. I have found very little from "The Wisdom of the Enneagram". While there is much that isn't included about me, I find that the descriptions are mostly accurate.

    Well the whole system in general is based off of one guys casual analysis of people, thus it's his own framework of logic; there's no testing of it via controlled and experiment groups; the whole 'X type looks like Y under stress but looks like Z when healthy' is counter intuitive and confusing; there are probably far more than just 9 desires/fears that motivate people. That's my criticisms anyway.

    Cool The Fonz and Jack Flak

    You've heard of the Fonz. You loved the Fonz. You wanted to be like the Fonz, even down to the white T-shirt and the black leather jacket. Yes, the Fonz was the epitome of cool ( not that he would know what 'epitome' means). But that was before Jack Flak.

    Well then, I understand now. So is Jack Flak on this site at all?

    No. He was; but since comparing him to Fonz, we can put it this way: he basically jumped the shark!
