Is the Enneagram a Sacred Cow?

In the past few years I have heard more about the Enneagram and its uses. I am a 5. Since I am a 5, I am dedicated to more learning. I am about to find out if the Enneagram is a sacred cow. 🙂

At present, there is scant empirical evidence that the Enneagram accurately describes human personality or spirituality. The nine types do not align with any scientifically evaluated models of personality.

Is the Enneagram useful for spiritual formation in our lives? This is the question taken up by this article and research.

Remember, folks, I’m a FIVE. I’m just doing research! (Translation: Don’t shoot the messenger!)
