When people learn about the Enneagram, they first want to know: “How can I find my Enneagram Type?”
Enneagram Typing Interviews are interactive sessions designed to help YOU discover your Enneagram type. These interviews are generally more powerful and accurate than online tests because they help you discover your core motivation.
Online tests focus more on behavior. While the interviews go a level deeper to uncover motivation. For example, if an online test asks “Do you like to drive sports cars?” many types might answer yes but for different motivations. The Performer (3) may like the attention they get. The Epicure (7) may like the adrenaline rush of going fast. The Protector (8) may like the feeling of power and control. Interactive interviews uncover these differences, leading to more accurate results.
The overall purpose of this process is to help clients discover what motivates patterns of thinking, feeling, and behaving. Type cannot be determined from external behaviors but only from a deeper understanding of focus of attention, underlying motivations, and lived experience.
Why learn your Enneagram type?
Improved communication both in business and interpersonal relationships
Better knowledge of your innate strengths and your potential areas of development

How does an Enneagram Typing Interview work?
You schedule the interview. There is nothing to prepare, and you don’t need to bring anything. I lead you through the process as we talk about your thoughts. The questions are designed to answer the question “Where does your attention go?” Most people find the interviews thought-provoking, informative and fun. Some sample questions are below.
What types of questions should I expect?
If you take a test out of 100, and you get it back with 95 correct, how would you feel about that?
On a scale of 1-10, how easy is it to say “no” to a request for something you really don’t want to do?
Are you competitive?
How familiar are you with the darker emotions like sadness, melancholy, and depression?
How important is it that you get time alone every day?
Do you trust people easily?
How are you with rules and limitations?
What really makes you really angry?
How comfortable are you with conflict?
How long does it take?
Most interviews take between 45 and 50 minutes, but we allow 75 minutes for the session so that we aren’t rushed. A video of your interview will be sent to you after the interview.
