People with all sorts of personalities can be successful at work. There are successful introverts and successful extroverts, successful optimists and successful pessimists. Our personality style doesn’t determine our success, and while it is often the source of many of our strengths, it can create blind spots and obstacles that can hold us back.
The value of personality models is that they give a framework for leveraging strengths and more-quickly recognizing blind spots and obstacles. A good model can also pro- vide us with roadmaps for overcoming them.
Ningún modelo de estilos de personalidad hace esas cosas mejor que el Eneagrama.
"Eneagrama" literalmente se refiere a un diagrama con nueve líneas que intersectan creando nueve puntos en torno a un círculo ("enea" es griego para nueve, "grama" para dibujo). Este diagrama se utiliza para representar nueve estilos de personalidad y las interrelaciones entre esos estilos.
There are two dimensions of personality de- scribed by the Enneagram—our inherent system of instinctual values and the nine strategies we use to satisfy those values. In other words, the Enneagram helps us understand what is important to people and how they go about getting those things that are important to them.
Most approaches to the Enneagram focus more on the nine strategies—thus the “ennea”—and view the instinctual values as a secondary matter. At Awareness to Action International we understand that both dimensions—the strategies and the instinctual biases—are important and focus equally on both of them.
