Riassunto: The Enneagram is an ancient model for identifying nine personality types. Despite its roots it has been scientifically validated in modern psychological research. What's Your Tribe? uses the Enneagram to give readers a practical tool to understand their own and others' behaviour, improving relationships at work and in their private lives. In this title the nine types of the Enneagram (the tribes) are richly illustrated using ordinary people as examples, who identify with a specific type. For example: The Challenger - the Lion: Takes charge, is a straight-talker, likes to do things his or her way, may walk over others yet inspires them and may make sacrifices for others. The Peacemaker - the Crocodile: Sits things out rather than pushes for an outcome, may procrastinate, but remains calm under pressure, and sees both sides of the argument. Two easy-to-complete tests guide readers to their type. Practical advise is given on how to become more self-aware and how to bring out the best in the people with whom we connect. The author also deals with conflict as a normal occurrence and suggests how, with a knowledge of the Enneagram types, we can be more skillful in dealing with conflict and conflict resolution.
What's Your Tribe by Lee Kingma is a different way of deciding what your personality type is through an Enneagram guide to human types at work and play. Enneagrams were considered a holy guide in ancient times when the spiritual and the physical were studied simultaneously. Through observation and study this simple to understand version from South Africa has a few pages of characteristics of each of the nine basic personality types, so you can read and determine which applies to you and your family or friends. Then the author tells positive and negative ways each personality type generally behaves by nature and how the positives can be the wiser choice of ways to act. Kingma also tells how the basic types usually interact with each other, giving helpful solutions for conflicts. I found the book very interesting and illuminating.
