One of the things that makes us most unique is our personality. Our personality is the beacon in the wings that help us to identify who we are and how we engage in the world. There are multiple tools that enable us to figure out this interesting piece that defines our relationships, occupations, hobbies and a host of other choices that we make that we do not consider in advance. We just find ourselves doing these things. Do you know what your personality type is? Would you like to learn it? Great! Below are two personality indicators that you can take that give you greater insight into who you are and why you do some of the things that you do.

This inventory has roots in Native American traditions. Simply defined an Enneagram is “a nine-sided figure used in a particular system of analysis to represent the spectrum of possible personality types”. From one point of view, the Enneagram is a set of nine distinct personality types, with each number on the Enneagram denoting one type. It is common to find a little of yourself in all nine of the types, although one of them should stand out as being closest to yourself. The Enneagram provides your dominant personality traits. Some Enneagrams also provide you an opportunity to identify your sub-type, the “wing”. Interested, aren’t you? Take a peep and see where you land.
