    Dear Matthew,
    I have been given a copy of your book by Lucia, the digital marketing manager for Watkins.
    I am helping them create a new podcasting platform for their authors.
    Do you have 20-25 minutes to spare for an interview on Skype to help promote your book?
    My Skype address is stevenobel.
    Best wishes

    Hello Matthew

    I believe myself to be a lunar-venus type. From the description in your book I’d like desperately to change. How can i be the best version of myself..? Your response would be greatly appreciated.

    • Hi Hilary … if you are a hybrid type (as you would be if you are a Lunar-Venus type), the best version is moving more solidly towards the Venus type. The Lunar-Venus type can get themselves into difficulties by being ‘pulled apart’ but the different influences of Lunar and Venus types. By consciously going more towards Venus type, the person more cohesively finds themselves in the Venus type territory. Venus type is distinguished by strong ’emotional scrupulousness’ – whereas the Lunar-Venus type can often be emotionally reckless. Does that answer your question? If not pls give me more details of (a) why you think you are this hybrid (b) what issue you are concerned about.

    Dear Matthew,
    So delighted to have discovered your book. It took a long time to get to the States.
    I have always been dissapointed about the inaccuracies of the 9 type method.
    Why do people assign the different numbers to the same people? And also the simularities between
    numbers like 1 and 6? Or 3 or 7?
    I find it easy to focus on one evil criminal that everyone knows is bad like a Hitler. If a personality system
    tells you he is wicked, you know you have the right system. I suspect that an a number 7 person under the
    old system, would be a number one person under your system.

    Dear Matthew,

    I just enjoyed you book very much :-) This prompted me to share a 30YO memory. I went to an Gurdjieff-Ouspensky society introduction in Sydney (I never joined), there they had (from distant memory) a very similar system. This was apparently based on the Rodney Collin’s system. They had 7 types the 7th was the Sun type representing the circle or the center, one could be a Star type or partially with any other type. They also proposed the same combination types as your system but didn’t count them as a separate type but did state that whilst someone could be anywhere on the line 1-4 allowing one to be 99% Lunar and 1% Venus etc etc. it was more likely to be 1/3 or 2/3 the way along.

    One other interesting point that I fear could easily apply to 12 types was that the best combinations of type relationship wise were opposite a vertical line down the middle i.e. 1-8, 2-7, and 4-5.

      Hi Mark, sorry, I didn’t see your letter before now . I don’t get involved with making comparisons between the 12egram and other systems. It’s better to accept it exactly as it’s presented – the way you don’t try and mix Japanese with, say, German. Warm regards M

  • Hi Matthew,
    I have read your book, “The 12-Type Enneagram” but am still confused on my Type. I have prepared a little spreadsheet with all the various attributes that seem to fit (and don’t fit – in red) for all the various Types. I’d like to send this to you for your help and guidance in identifying my true type (s). Would you contact me via email so I can attach this spreadsheet and send to you, please?
