Kort biografi
DON RICHARD RISO, M.A. (1946-2012) was the foremost writer and developer of the Enneagram in the world and the most-published and bestselling author in the field. The president of Enneagram Personality Types, Inc., and co-founder of The Enneagram Institute, he taught the Enneagram for more than twenty years, pioneering a revolutionary new approach to ego psychology through his 1977 discovery of the Levels of Development. His five bestselling books with Russ Hudson have been published in more than a dozen countries and languages. Mr. Riso was a Jesuit for thirteen years, with degrees in English and philosophy, was elected to the Jesuit Honor Society, Alpha Sigma Nu, and was a Ford Foundation Fellow at Stanford University in communications (social psychology).

Recensioner

Riso and Hudson go into a lot of detail. I think this is an excellent second read after studying more introductory work or taking part in an Enneagram group. I appreciated their detail regarding the levels of growth within each number as well as the instinctual variants and wings. Towards the end when they discussed the strata that are passed through in the process of self-development, they lost me, but I guess we all have our work to do.

I took the official Enneagram test online in 2019. Since then, I've taken other online assessments and typed similarly.

I'd never paid much attention to the Enneagram before then. With my test results, I got an explanation of my type, but it's very dense and presumes a baseline level of Enneagram misunderstanding that I didn't have. Since then, I've done some reading on my own.

Months later, I picked up this book. I thought it might not only help me better understand my own type, but give me insight and understanding of the other types since a) each of these types are present in all of us, to greater or lesser extent and b) it might improve my interactions with others who have a different dominant type than I do.

Anyway--there is a lot here that I found helpful:
- the distortions for each type, how each is most likely to go off its rails
- the harmonic groupings
- the wake up calls of becoming unhealthy by type
- how each type manipulates others and tries to get what it wants

etc.

There is a two-question assessment towards the beginning of the book that helps you narrow down your type. I didn't find that to be particularly aligned with my other Enneagram quiz/test results, so use with caution. However, used in conjunction with the quizzes associated with each type, you can better rule in or out what your type is most likely to be.

Recommended reading if you're Enneagram-interested.

The last of my Riso-Hudson enneagram books for now. This one had two new sections; center scrambling and information on sorting out misidentified types. It also went into more detail around the spiritual aspects of Holy Idea, Holy Passion, and Virtues. It provided an interesting look into the early days of the enneagram and how it has evolved into the current system.

This is now my go-to reference around the enneagram. The authors took a lot of time to go both broad and deep covering the basics but also shadings and variations of each type. This book also introduced me to the Hornevian Groups to explain social styles which I hadn't seen in any other reference.
