Publisher's Summary

Most of us have no idea how others see or process their experiences. And that can make relationships hard, whether with intimate partners, with friends, or in our professional lives. Understanding the motivations and dynamics of these different personality types can be the key that unlocks sometimes mystifying behavior in others - and in ourselves.

This book from Suzanne Stabile on the nine Enneagram types and how they behave and experience relationships will guide listeners into deeper insights about themselves, their types, and others' personalities so that they can have healthier, more life-giving relationships. No one is better equipped than the coauthor of The Road Back to You to share the Enneagram's wisdom on how relationships work - or don't.

Why do Sixes seem so intimidated and put off by Eights, who only wish the Sixes would stop mulling things over and take action?

Why do Fives seem so unavailable, even to their closest family and friends, while Twos seem to feel everybody else's feelings but their own and end up irritating people who don't want their help?

How in the world can Fours be so open and loving to you one day and restrained and distant other times?

The Enneagram not only answers these questions but gives us a way out of our usual finger pointing and judging of other people - and finding them wanting, perplexing, or impossible.

Suzanne's generous, sometimes humorous, and always insightful approach reveals why all the types behave as they do. This book offers help in fostering more loving, mature, and compassionate relationships with everyone in our lives.

A Necessary “Part 2” to The Road Back to You

Relationships are so fraught w anxiety if you dont know yourself. This book helps you understand both how you feel and act, depending on your number, and the number of the person you’ll dealing with. Practical, useful, straightforward, and a quick read, this is a book I’d recommend for anyone who is familiar with the enneagram (to some degree) and wants to improve their relationships with friends, loved ones, and those they work with.

Associating a number is subjective.

At best, this is a characterization of different personalities. If you want to learn about different variations of personalities, then this is a good book. However, I don't believe this knowledge will help you understand yourself better (maybe only a little).

Problem 1: Characterizing yourself or others is subjective. What you view yourself is most likely different than how others view you. So associating yourself or others to a certain number can be completely wrong.

Problem 2: As the author mentioned, there can be different combinations of numbers at any given time. And the numbers representing a personality can change throughout life. Thus, there are too many combinations to keep track of to effectively use the characterizations to deal with others/understand yourself.

The only way I see this being a viable method of increasing interpersonal relationships is of you literally map out everyone you come into contact with. But even then, you don't really know if your assumptions are correct.

Excellent primer for beginners and refresher for “experts”

My husband and I are both ordained clergy, and we’ve been studying the Enneagram through Suzanne’s trainings and workshops for three years. It’s an excellent source of spiritual and personal growth in our marriage and our ministries. This book is a great tool for revisiting the basic attributes of each number - but also provides the additional depth of understanding how different numbers relate to one another. We’ve enjoyed the review and benefited greatly from the fresh teachings found in this approachable text. We are currently introducing a new group to the Enneagram for the first time and we are highly recommending this book as they begin their journey toward deeper understanding of self and others.

Awesome insight!

As a couples coach, I loved this book! There is so much insight into how personalities mesh and flow. If you are in a relationship, I highly recommend this book to strengthen that connection! We wonder why our SO is the way they are; after reading this, you’ll know!

Beautiful!

This is such a wonderful book that shows the importance of having grace with others. It taught me how to understand and value those who are different than myself!

The perfect companion book!

This book gives a deeper look into each type and how to relate with one another which, I think, is what we are all looking for.
I was wrongly labeled a certain number on the enneagram by some well-meaning friends, but wasn’t convinced of their declaration,
After reading this book (after the first The Road Back to You), i truly discovered my core values and felt set free by the discovery of my number and wings on the enneagram.
I listened for my husband’s number and my children’s number and I feel like this is such a great tool for helping relate and communicate with each of each.

Great book to understand yourself and others

Awesome book based on the enugram which I hadn't heard of until the last couple of years. Fascinating and an audible you will breeze right through because you won't be able to put it down!

furthering knowledge of relationships

This book is a wonderful guide for learning how to communicate with each other through the teachings of the Enneagram. Suzanne's presentation not only explores how each person is different but how best to communicate with them to get the best out of each relationship.

Definitely buy the book and audiobook! ❤️👏👏

If you want to have better quality relationships with others, this is a great tool to start with. I have both the book and audiobook and I highly recommend you do the same! There are some extra tidbits in the audio version that are just gold and the book is nice so you can go back and study it further later! So great! 🙌

Title questionable

The focus on explaining the relationships "Between" the numbers lacked depth often only 2-3 sentences. Spent most of the book explaining the numbers instead of the relationships between them. A good resource but I was hopeful of more of how each number relates to the other.

Eye opener

I have been hearing from the Enneagram for a few years now without understanding what it was. I’m so glad I listened to this book motivated by the desire to be better, to better my marriage as well and help my children with their own lives and relationships. This book was easy to understand and definitely an eye opener. It was interesting to listen and suddenly realize the author was either talking about ME or someone that would come to mind like almost perfect. I would love to listen to it again now that I know my number... thanks for a great book!💖🙏🏼🙂
