Help Others Improve Their Lives

First know the types. Then look for type behaviour around you.

See someone in particular.  Make a tentative guess at their type.Look for evidence to support.

Be always ready to take in new evidence. Remember we have all energies. So we all do things out of type.

Once you are sure what type someone is:

  • You will know what they are missing.
    What advice will help.  Or what they will respond to positively
    Always use the information in the 12 Type Enneagram with respect
    You can always share the information with them
  • Be aware that some types resent the idea that they can be clearly seen!
  • So be subtle (Venus type energy)
  • And generous (Jupiter type)
  • Do not try to control (Mars type)
  • But do explain carefully (Saturn type)
