How Do We Make the Enneagram Credible?

In this episode of the Awareness to Action Enneagram podcast, Mario Sikora, María José Munita and Seth "Creek" Creekmore talk about intellectual credibility and the Enneagram. Inspired by an article that grouped astrology with this model of personality, the three hosts discuss how they can position the Enneagram in a way that makes it more credible, but also address why this criticism is justified.

“There’s so many aspects of the Enneagram that look like astrology that I think it’s fair that they’re kind of considered similar, and it’s really frightening.” -María José [10:57]

“A lot of this can and should come back to humility.” -Creek [24:42]

“So for me, it’s all about what kind of claim are you making and does that claim meet the requirements for evaluating that claim? And that is what will make the Enneagram respectable.” -Mario [35:05]
