Assess themselves, discover his personality, outdo himself, or detach from a label stuck on his forehead since birth, all this can be analyzed and modified thanks to a psychological tool called theEnneagram.
The enneagram technique aims to define the type of personality or ego of each. The greater our ego, the less we have the capacity to assume and accept what we are; thus, one is more exposed to suffering.
The Enneagram, it is therefore nine types of personality intimately linked to our new modes of personal fulfillment. It details the relationship of cause and effect resulting from our relationships, fruit of the personality with which we are forced to compose since our childhood.
By venturing into oneself, we can observe what is going on and get rid of automatisms who hurt us and make our loved ones suffer,we can get rid of the labels that condition our lives. The enneagram identifies to which type of personality each of us corresponds.
Once we know what our personality type is, we must learn to work on our weaknesses and limitations in order to reach our ultimate goal of overcoming ourselves and another way of dealing with ourselves. in the world.
The nine personality types:
For him, perfection comes down to moving forward in life successfully and receiving the affection of those close to him. He considers himself to be superior and catalogs others based on the mistakes they make, while being afraid to commit himself. He is meticulous and very hard on himself. Compulsive, methodical and irritable, he can easily feel hate and tends to have Manichean thoughts: white or black, good or bad; no half measure.
His relatives appreciate him because he is there for them. He manipulates the lives of others, while being dedicated to them and showing generosity. He does not make his own needs a priority, often putting them on the same level as those of others. He is satisfied only when he feels indispensable. He craves freedom, and canto reveal oneself under different faces for the sole purpose of satisfying the needs of others. To achieve his ends, he can evoke empathy, or reject the affection of others.
He is loved by others thanks to his success and the image he sends back and he seems indispensable. Work is his priority, and his feelings disappear as soon as he begins to work. Competitive and effective, he is afraid of failure. At work, he forgets his heart and his feelings ("Only I can do it"). For him, the artificial image he wants to give to others is real.
He is attracted by the inaccessible, by all that is difficult to obtain. The ordinary bores him, and he has a low self-esteem. For him, life is a movie (comedy, drama). Not very brave, he likes drama, and more broadly art and all that it encompasses. He is melancholy, sensitive and very sentimental.
He needs intimacy, does not like to engage, and moves away from everything about affect and emotions. He needs to live in an environment where he can protect himself and limit contact with others. To face the world, he must have time in front of him and have a survival kit. He catalogs every single part of life and wants to understand how the world works.
Anxious and faithful, he prefers to stay behind. He is a skeptic who is afraid of being betrayed. His motto is think instead of acting. Either he submits or he rises against authority. He identifies with the causes of the most disadvantaged, and thus embodies the leader of the opposition. He is afraid to acknowledge his own anger, and fears that of others.
He longs for a wonderful life and has great plans. He needs to have fun at work, and his enthusiasm is communicative. He does not like to suffer, nor to be in conflict with others. He defends himself by attacking with enthusiasm and optimism.
He has a compulsive need to control everything. Behind his power, he feels safe. He maintains contact with his own, and is in charge of defending them. His professional life and his private life are both subject to rules. For him, justice is not to be neglected, and weakness is his pet peeve. He needs to set limits and does not do things halfway.
He has the ability to get along with everyone. He aspires to neutrality and avoids conflict. He acts by routine and does not like the change: he has trouble saying "no". It's hard for him to feel good when alone.Hatred and anger inspire distance and separation. Patient and stubborn, he hopes that time will resolve conflicts. He looks at people and catalogs because for him it's important.
As the philosopher Arthur Schopenhauer said: "The personality of the man determines a priori the measure of his possible fortune".
