    The holy ideas seem by definition to be concepts that are very far away from our own daily experience/lives. Even the term itself 'holy idea' doesn't...

    Why Enneagram Tests are Bad
    by Daeva
    Tests, quizzes, questionnaires, all these serve as introductions to the Enneagram. These are the entree before the grand dinner. They get you to start thinking in ways that might help with uncovering your motives and your fears, and that's where the process of typing yourself begins. But just like no hunger can be satiated with appetizers alone, an Enneagram type cannot be determined without further study, introspection, and examination of the psyche.

    Type Four's Romanticism
    by Mahat
    This post sums up the raison d'être of the Romantics of 1700s. It's telling that 4s are described as the Romantics in the common enneagram literature and I wholeheartedly agree with this. No, they’re not romantic in the wistfully looking out the window sense of the term but by way of emphasizing their subjectivity, imagination, inspiration, and emotions as gateways to reality. To be in true communion with reality, is to be in union with the Divine: the true heart of reality. According to the Romantics,...

    The Enneagram: A tool, but in subservience to which goal?
    by Vive
    Hammers are tools. They are mostly used to hammer down nails, but it would not be nuanced to say a hammer merely has one purpose. With a minor amount...

    Gandalf: A Type Nine Archetype
    by SpiritoftheGael
    Gandalf, from Lord of the Rings, is an excellent example of the nine archetype. He is essentially shown to be a diplomat who is a go between all the warring races who hate each other. Gandalf acting as a diplomat is shown clearly in The Hobbit when he tries to convince the dwarves, humans, and elves to fight against their common enemy rather than with each other. Despite his wisdom and diplomacy, he avoids taking charge and ever exerting his will. Galadriel at one point asks him to be the head of...

    The Core of Nine
    by SpiritoftheGael
    Nine can be envisioned as a pendulum with loss of self on one end and loss of other external things on the other end. What many nines strive for is to be right in the middle of this pendulum where they have somehow attained the perfect balance between their inner world and the outer world. The goal is to form a perfect unity between the internal and the external so that no loss of any sort ever has to be experienced. Of course in actuality, this leads to a constant tension from within to keep this...
