After people learn about the Enneagram, they often ask “How do I learn my Enneagram Type?”
Interactive Enneagram Typing Interviews are designed to help you discover your Enneagram type. These interactive interviews are generally more powerful and accurate than online tests because through dynamic discussion, your core motivation is uncovered.
Online tests speak more to behavior. Interactive interviews go a level deeper to uncover motivation. For example, if an online test asks “Do you like to drive sports cars?” many types might answer yes but for different motivations. An Achiever (3) may like the attention they get. An Enthusiast (7) may like the adrenaline rush of going fast. A Leader (8) may like the feeling of power and control. Interactive interviews uncover these differences, leading to more accurate results.
Why learn your Enneagram type?
The benefits include:
increased self awareness
improved communication both in business and interpersonal relationships
better knowledge of your innate strengths and your potential areas of development
increased compassion towards yourself and others.
How does it work?
You schedule the interview. There is nothing to prepare, and you don’t need to bring anything. I lead you through the process as we talk about your thoughts. The questions are designed to answer the question “where does your attention go?” Most people find the interviews thought-provoking, informative and fun. Some sample questions are below.
What types of questions should I expect?
Here are a few sample questions:
If you take a test out of 100, and you get it back with 95 correct, how would you feel about that?
On a scale of 1-10, how easy is it to say “no” to a request for something you really don’t want to do?
Are you competitive?
How familiar are you with the darker emotions like sadness, melancholy and depression?
How important is it that you get time alone every day?
Do you trust people easily?
How are you with rules and limitations?
What really makes you really angry?
How comfortable are you with conflict?

How long does it take?
The interview takes between 60 and 90 minutes. A video clip of your interview is sent to you after the interview.
