Wagner, Jerome; Walker, Ronald E.
Journal of Clinical Psychology, v39 n5 p712-17 Sep 1983
Examined a Sufi personality typology that describes nine life strategies depicted by a nine-sided figure called the enneagram. Devised an objective 135-item test instrument to differentiate the nine styles, and obtained positive results. Enneagram typology may have diagnostic, prognostic, and heuristic value for studying personality structure and dynamics. (WAS)
