    Default Example of practical use of Enneagram : evaluating a milieu

    I found a very concrete use of Enneagram recently. When you go to a real-life social setting, you can evaluate the milieu, in order to calculate the global hostility, and the risk of being harmed.


    Variant 1

    Step 1 : Count Fours, Sixes and Eights around you, except those who are high-functioning. If you hesitate, count it.

    Step 2 : Count everyone.

    Step 3 : Calculate the E468 ratio. If higher than 10-15% there's risk.



    Variant 2

    Assess the EType and the functioning level of EACH dude/girl.

    Count :

    3 points for each Low-functioning 468-er
    2 points for each Average-functioning 468-er
    1 point for each Low-functioning 135-er

    Then apply the formula : points / (number_of_people * 3)

    If the ratio is higher than .1 or .15, consider the milieu as risky.

    This is what Riso & Hudson would deem a "misuse of the Enneagram". There's only one use for it. Self-development. Try it sometime, machintruc. Guaranteed to reduce hostility and aggression in two weeks or your money back.

    I'm not an enneagram purist. You are.
