The enneagram (pronounced any‐a‐gram, a Greek word for a nine‐sided shape) is a psychological theory that was introduced to the USA in the 1960s. Use of the enneagram for the study of personality types provides the opportunity to learn about oneself and others. The enneagram has become increasingly popular in the last decade, and there are over 30 recent books devoted to the enneagram and its uses. The enneagram is a diagram of each person’s personality. Areas revealed include motives, fears, desires, strengths and weaknesses. This psychological model divides people’s behaviour into nine distinct types. Each type, usually referred to by its number, is unique. Knowledge of the enneagram will enable you to predict a person’s response in various situations. The authors have adapted common responses to library situations.
