In the Typing Process, you will learn how to facilitate self-discovery in your clients. From neuroscience we know that learning through experience rather than being given an insight is hugely impactful in creating new neural pathways that transform rather than merely inform.

You will learn step-by-step how to conduct typing interviews to assist Enneagram newcomers in determining their type. You will develop articulate questions, learn the process of inquiry and how to listen deeply, and provide interviewees with guidance that allows them to discover their Enneagram type.

Modules include differentiating one type from another, non-verbal aspects of type, and knowledge of your own biases in conducting interviews. The training culminates in a rare hands-on opportunity to practice your skills by interviewing volunteers from the community, with feedback from instructors.

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.

Students will:

  • Learn how to conduct typing interviews using the inquiry method in order to help interviewees discover their potential type.
  • Develop a deep and compassionate understanding of – and respect for – the complexity of type and the keys to differentiating one type from another.
  • Develop, hone, and practice a personalized script for typing interviews.
  • Identify the key words, phrases and concepts that are associated with each Enneagram type (have a set of key themes or words in mind)
  • Develop a comprehensive strategy or protocol for the typing interview
  • Use key questions to distinguish between look-alike types
  • Validate tentative conclusions about an interviewee’s type by checking the wings, stress and security types, and giving a synopsis
  • Describe how the influence of type can bias the typing process


  • Three days of live teachings and practices
  • 38-page workbook
  • Interactive cohort community
