The three types at the core of the Enneagram are Threes, Sixes and Nines.
What the heck am I talking about? Well, the Enneagram is an ancient method of typing personality. It has some similarities to Jungs types (MBTI) but has deeper spiritual aspects because it contains elements of several religious traditions. It was popularised by Ouspensky and Gurdjieff.
These wonderful clips show the three core types:
NLP Emotional: Threes (Move Towards)
NLP Digital: Sixes (Move Away)
NLP Kinesthetic: Nines (Indecision)
I'm in the process of working out which remedies are closest to each type ... If you would like to offer any suggestions please do. Threes look a bit like Carcinosin and Samarium. Nines seems to have aspects of Holmium. Sixes remind me of Anacardium. They also look a bit like Praseodymium.
Interesting to note that the Lanthanide qualities of self-realisation, reflection and humanitarianism are very evident in these clips.
