To compare any two types from the Enneagram typology, try one of the pair analyses in the list below.

You’ll find every pairing from the nine Enneagram types compared on four broad areas of thinking, feeling, and behaving:

  • Interpersonal Style
  • Emotional Style
  • Intellectual Style
  • Organizational Style

Interpersonal Style describes common patterns of interacting, communicating, and resolving conflict with others.

Emotional Style describes tendencies in emotional intensity and valence (i.e., positivity vs. negativity).

Intellectual Style captures common information processing patterns, like idea abstraction vs. concreteness and the need for novelty vs. closure.

Organizational Style describes tendencies around routines, organization, planning, and spontaneity.

However, it’s important to remember that the nine Enneagram types are broad and only describe general trends. Within each Enneagram type, there is still plenty of important psychological variation among individuals with that type. In other words, two people with the same Enneagram type can still differ significantly in every area.
