Instinct Zones
Enneagrammer Blog
by Joseph Simone
6d ago
In David’s theory of the instincts, each instinct has three zones. These zones run in a cycle, but they also get “stuck” the way our instinct stacking does. Within your stacking, each of your instincts has a sub-stacking or “zone stacking.” The Three Zones Zone 1: Arousing/Stimulating Correlations: Sexual Instinct/Frustration Zone 1 is the arena of internal desire and activation to escape the rut of Zone 3. It’s the zone that knows what it wants to go seek out in zone 2. Being stuck in this zone keeps you in a place of internal frustration with the instinct. It correlates with the SX instinct ..read more

Harmonic Triads Revisited
Enneagrammer Blog
by Joseph Simone
6M ago
The three of us have been discussing some possible reworking of the names of the Harmonic Triads. While we haven’t yet come up with perfect names (Reactive is particularly on the chopping block), the discussion about what these triads really are left us with some insights that we wanted to share. Below is a summary I (Joseph) have written on each triad; and below that you’ll find an expansion on that summary written by David in connection with the Object Relations. Summary by Joseph: 4-6-8: Quickly/Impulsively provoking to uncover hidden negative truth for catharsis; putting people through s ..read more

David's Overlaps Theory: SO/SP=1 & SO/SX=7
Enneagrammer Blog
by Joseph Simone
10M ago
The overlaps of so/sp and Type 1, and so/sx with Type 7 — the two “social-dominant”enneagram types —indicates that they consider themselves to have innate social ascendance, or as being entitled to it — a sense of being worthy of having influence, height, and prominence across a wide domain (a social domain), each in very different ways. And because the Social instinct includes a familial theme, there’s a certain kind of ‘family social role’ that 1 and 7 — through their innate facilities and drives as personality structures — fortify in themselves and bring to many of their interactions as we ..read more

Snobby vs. Peopley vs. Neutral
Enneagrammer Blog
by Joseph Simone
10M ago
One of the tri-patterns we’ve noticed (introduced by David) is that fixes can either be Snobby, Peopley, or Neutral. What that roughly translates to is either a negative/exclusive association with people, a positive/inclusive association with people, or a neutral one. Watch our full DAA video on this subject!

"Areas" and "Adjacents"
Enneagrammer Blog
by Joseph Simone
2y ago
I just wanted to give a quick description of two terms we’ve been using: “areas” and “adjacents.” Areas An area is the common ground between two adjacent types such as 1 and 2. 1w2 and 2w1 fixes will have an “area” in common. Often when typing someone, you see an area before a core. Here are some of the basic are descriptions we use: 1-2 God 2-3 Prince Charming, Hostess 3-4 Fashion, Model 4-5 Insect 5-6 Nerd 6-7 Comedian, verbosity 7-8 Brat 8-9 Block, Bear 9-1 Philosophy, Jesus As crude as these sound, they refer to some basic character archetypes that tend to help with the intuitive typi ..read more

Original Enneagrammer Terms and Concepts
Enneagrammer Blog
by Joseph Simone
2y ago
If you are new to Enneagrammer, you’re probably discovering some new terms and concepts that you didn’t find in other enneagram circles. Here is a list of some of the original terms and concepts created by Enneagrammer: Areas Two adjacent types as an “area,” for example the “2-3 area” describes what 2w3 and 3w2 would have in common Stems Two fixes as an individual unit within a trifix, for example the 369 trifix has 3-6, 6-9, and 3-9 as stems which each have individual characteristics. It’s like viewing the trifix as a Venn diagram Layers Each level of complexity within a complete typing (ex ..read more

Attachment to Attachment: group comment by Czander Tan
Enneagrammer Blog
by Joseph Simone
3y ago
Czander Tan from the Enneagrammer Universe Facebook group made a concise and insightful comment about the nature of attachment types (3, 6, 9) and the term “attachment.” I wanted to make sure this didn't get lost in the comments because it’s wonderfully explained. I think there is some vagueness with the term "attachment" in object relations which leads to confusion about how it plays out, because technically, "frustration" types are attached to frustration and "rejection" types are attached to rejection. What "attached" means in this latter sense is that there is an ego-investment in replay ..read more

Trifix Nicknames
Enneagrammer Blog
by Joseph Simone
3y ago
As an addendum to my post on Trifix Overlay theory, I wanted to write a list of my favourite trifix nicknames. Some of these are from BHE’s trifix roast, some of them I’ve created, and some are derived from Katherine Fauvre’s original Tritype work. Why is it important to even have nicknames for the trifixes? To me, this helps us identify each trifix as an archetypal energy. For example, 126 and 621 are quite different, but they have some important elements in common. Some of these names will catch on, some won’t. I hope that the ones that work the best will become part of the canon and the one ..read more

Trifix Overlay + Layers
Enneagrammer Blog
by Joseph Simone
3y ago
I wanted to write about a little theory I’ve been working on called Trifix Overlay. Now that I’m at the point where I understand trifix at a deep level, I wanted to add another layer. One of the most important rules about understanding trifixes is synergy. Nothing within a trifix stands alone. A 1 fix in a 146 tritype operates differently than a 1 fix in a 127 trifix. They will both have the main facets of 1, but the synergy that one creates with the 4-6 stem is different than the synergy with the 2-7 stem. Speaking of stems, they are the second layer of trifix. Here’s an overview of the layer ..read more
