The Enneagram Types - Profile Descriptions

The Enneagram is a model of human personality which is based on underlying fixations and unconscious motivations for human behavior. Though it can be utilized as a simple system of personality type, deeper uses of the system delve into understanding and overcoming underlying self-limiting patterns of thinking which were formed in childhood, thereby supporting personal growth. Contemporary Enneagram understanding is principally derived from the teachings of Oscar Ichazo and Claudio Naranjo.

The 16 Types - A Cognitive Function Analysis

This section includes a description of each of the 16 types - specifically how the dominant, auxiliary, tertiary and inferior function manifests in those types.

The Rationals

The Idealists

The Artisans

The Guardians

The Jungian Cognitive Functions

First described in Jung's Personality Types, the Jungian Cognitive Functions (JCF) can be described as different lenses through which we tend to perceive and judge. Each cognitive function combines a perceiving or judging function with an attitude (introversion or extraversion), yielding eight cognitive functions. There are different models for determining what cognitive functions an individual of a given type prefers, often referred to as Type Dynamics. Most models specify a primary function (strongest and most conscious), an auxiliary function (less strong and conscious), an auxiliary functions (less strong still) and an inferior function (less strong still) for each type.






Empirical Jungian Typology

The building blocks of type: Dichotomies versus Functions

This section focuses on the dichotomy based model of personality similar to that utilized by MBTI. This approach de-emphasizes jungian cognitive functions and focuses on preferences for each of the four factors: extraversion/introversion, sensing/intuition, thinking/feeling, and judging/perceiving.

Cognitive Visual Reading

The theory was officially published as a 350 page paperback/eBook a few months ago, but over half of the book has been made available online at: http://cognitivetype.com/

Theory Basics

The Big 5 Personality Model

The Big 5 Personality Model defines a set of five key personality traits: openness, conscientiousness, extraversion, agreeableness, and neuroticism. It was developed by researchers who studied known personality traits and then performed factor analysis of hundreds of measures of these traits to find underlying factors of personality.
