Your core Enneagram Type is just the tip of the iceberg of your personality. Each of the 9 Enneagram types has three "subtypes" so there are 27 subtypes — and knowing your particular subtype can be extremely helpful.
In fact, for me, learning my subtype was a game changer.
If you're unfamiliar with subtypes, here's a quick explanation:
Every human being has three instinctual drives: Self-Preservation, Social relationships in groups, and One-to-One bonding. One of these instincts matters more to us than the other two. When our primary instinct blends with our core Enneagram Type it creates a "subtype" that powerfully influences how we express our personality.
Understanding the subtle nuances of your subtype can make a world of difference for you.
The iEQ9 report identifies your subtype and describes how it affects the way you see and relate to the world (and remember, it's all customized for you).
