three personality types that
have in common the assets
and liabilities of that Center.
• Instinctive (gut)
• Feeling (heart)
• Thinking (head)
DOMINANT EMOTION
• Each type has a particular way of coping
with the dominant emotion of its Center.
• Anger or rage
• Shame
• Anxiety
• In the Instinctive Center, Eights act out their
anger and instinctual energies.
THE WING
• No one is a pure personality type: everyone is a unique mixture of his or her
basic type and usually one of the two types adjacent to it on the
circumference of the Enneagram.
• Your basic type dominates your overall personality, while the wing
complements it and adds important, sometimes contradictory, elements to
your total personality.
