    Question Is enneagram scientifically proven?

    It's scientifically isn't proven. In my opinion it's just categories, but At least it isn't like horoscopes which analyse your personality by LUCK and when you were born (I want to know who is that stupid who made it, I just want to kill him). Anyway you CAN'T you just CAN'T categorize BILLIONS of people into NINE categories, but you also can't analyse billions of personalities lol. What do you think?

    And if they made a artificially intelligent robot would they use enneagram or mbti lol? , maybe horoscopes?

    to give some perspective, many things in this world are "just categories". humans categorize everything.

    It’s not proven scientifically but just because it isn’t proven doesn’t mean that it’s not real or useful. The enneagram has definitely helped me empathise with people and understand their motivations a lot better. I think we are only as unique as our memories and experiences are, meaning no two people will have all the same experiences & memories, and know all the same people but that doesn’t mean that we aren’t all similar to each other on some level. I think people have more in common with others than they realise especially when it comes to what’s driving them.

    The issue of proof is why psychology as a whole is considered a "soft science."
