The Ennegram: The 27 Instinctual Sub-types of the Enneagram
The Instinctual sub-types allow us a deeper insight into what stops us from being in presence.
They also reveal subtle aspects of types not always covered in the generalised Nine Types. Sometimes we get mistyped and the system doesn’t feel as if its working for us. Take for instance the instinctual Social (counter-phobic) Type 7 (Enthusiast), who is most often found helping others with their pain, rather than attempting to escape theirs through activity. Because of this, they may have been typed as a Type Two (Helper), yet feel that they somehow can’t relate to being a Type Two. Through understanding the filters of the Instinctual types, we can also understand how two people of the same type, can appear to be very different and have different motivations, interests etc. This is true of all types. This area of the Instinctual Types is a workshop I have not previously covered and will take you to new levels of understanding of your type and others’ and in doing so, work towards greater self-healing and self-actualisation.
